So I have this thing that when I feel like I am in a creative rut, I try my hand at something new to refresh my mind and tackle my projects with new vigor. Not bad for our first time mixing and applying our own fresh henna from @hennasooq (don't zoom in or anything though haha)----and I need to thank @hennamorphosis for her words of wisdom although We played around with #Jagua the other night and now we have stains everywhere (stains which I am trying to cover up with the artwork above)---- and we look like we drew on our hands and feet with a sharpie 😂😂😂 oh and thanks to my guinea pig cousin @sade.rn_ hahah!!! Anyway that is my advice for other creatives or even those trying to battle #anxiety and depression; 😌when you feel stuck, get in another vehicle for a moment, because my wheels are spinning again for the other clients I am designing for. 😍 #henna #hennasooq #indianweddings #indianculture #mehndi

I am disgusted by what happened in #Charlottesville yesterday. White Supremacist Militia can threaten the safety and lives of several people and not get arrested, brutalized, or murdered (not that anyone should but the privilege is real.) Then President Tang avoided outright condemning these hateful groups, which only empowers them further. Where are we?! Rest in Peace to beautiful Heather Heyer who lost her life yesterday standing up for justice. I am grateful that my family in Charlottesville are all safe and sound but I am utterly, outwardly, deeply disturbed that this is our reality. And let me just make it clear as settled tap 💦 water, I am not afraid to say what I am passionate about as a human, I cannot live under the keep politics out of business when this type of stuff is happening. So it is what it is. #heatherheyer
Today in the Chronicles of Sugar, I took a lunch break (what?!) and hopped on the phone with a close friend who at some random point goes oh just have another baby, Phoenix has officially lost her hint of placenta smell and I need my fix. To which I replied emphatically hell no but I will develop a perfume for her. And thus A Hinta Placenta eau de parfum was born. For all of you creeps who love a new baby smell like me but refuse to work that hard to obtain it. One spritz of this will scratch that itch. Lolll:) Its like my branding brain doesn't shut off. Then I got into babystalking mode and drooled on @judahavenue website for like an hour. Look at these baby 🍼 pictures!!! +++++++++++Anyway how was everyone's week? I had a tough one, personally, but I worked on a bunch of graphics and wrapped up site visits/ material ordering for our crazy Fall schedule. Tomorrow is mah Birfday!! Hope you all have a great weekend!
Their little souls just give me a high. My feisty, mean little Phoenix who refused to get into her bathing suit, loud, clumsy Skye, and preteen angst filled Charli. There was a time when my anxiety disorder prevented me from really relishing in just being an attentive and affectionate mother. I was too in my own head, allowing fear to shut me down. Losing mine made me afraid to be lost to them. Learning to enjoy authentic carefree moments, and give them memories to nourish their own spirits, so that they can be even better moms than me. Its all about healing yourself so that your metaphysical vision is clear. Hope everyone is making time for family this weekend!:)
Gah!!! 😍😍😍 How Naina's dress ended up matching my design plan is beyond me but I mean how special is this dress though?! Lourve it. @nicolebabcockphotography @bridesofsabyasachi
Well well well lookie who got some newly designed business cards ♥️ our longtime branding client @spilledmilkdc. We did these ultra thick black edge matte babies for their team. Then I demolished all 12 of my @cookiesforalex1 of course! Lol 😝 edible styling props are the beeeeeest.
I think we all need a guy who looks at us the way Matt looks at Anne-Marie 😌. He was literally this emoji all day: 😍 and to top it all off he is taking his new wife on a world wide honeymoon for a few months. We wish you two the best!!

Celebrating a little booger I love so much today. You know where I have been finding the dopest patterns on paper lately? @ikeausa ---say what?! Put this icecream leopard pattern with this boho greenery ribbon for my own little jungle wrapping. I want to put this on a kids wall!! Sigh. Someone have a kid so I can do another nursery por favorrrrr!
I have to say it was a good day. :) I wonder who else notices my little lines of hip hop in my little snippets here haha! Omg Im getting old. Speaking of which my 28th Birthday is in like two weeks and I have no plans. I'm thinking dinner, karaoke and rollerskating or the reverse so we can drink, who wants to go? ;) Venue: @galacuisineraspberry Florals @edgefloraleventdesigners ,stationery,design: Us.

Today has been insane but you know what? I know a young designer who likes to swaaang.
Still finalizing the #packagingdesign samples for @embri but loving the hologram logo on these 16pt silk touch matte boxes, and the glossy black logo on nude ---- cant wait to see the patterns we designed implemented in blind pressing on the sides....love seeing a rough sketch turn into a tangible product!! #minimalist design is so hawt
