Hey luvs, we are Mahe and Raahema. We are two cousins who, despite the geographic distance that divides us, share the same love for fashion. Between living in the Garden state, NJ and the Keystone state, PA, we come across many different people with many unique styles. We are Pakistani-Americans and while we straddle two very different cultures, we find a good balance between the two. Our sense of style is influenced by our religious background as well as our culture. We will fill you in on all the things we are loving this season.xoxo.

Health and Fitness
Hey luvs! It's Raahema here with some helpful tips on staying fit. This is obviously non beauty related but something I really love to do. Today's post will focus on exercising at home, and going to the gym.
Going to the Gym:
When exercising at the gym, you should remember these few tips.
1.) Set goals. Whether you're biking, running, or lifting weights, you should always set goals for yourself. You should also increase your amount of exercises little by little, as you visit the gym. For example, if you're running, set a goal of maybe 1 mile. Then, the next time you go, increase your distance by 1/2 a mile. If you keep doing this at your own pace, then you will definitely get stronger and fitter.
2.) Alternate machines. When going to the gym, it is always important to get a full body workout. Focusing on one area of your body is good for a competition requiring that skill, but won't make you fit all around. When you get to the gym start off with one machine. Exercises on that machine for a certain amount of time or distance, and then switch. That way you will get a full body workout that Will leave you feeling healthy and strong!
Exercising at Home:
1.) Be consistent. When exercising at home you should always be consistent. You should do exercises everyday and slowly increase your amount, like you do at the gym. If you exercises a lot one day and then not exercises at all the next day, then you won't get a good workout.
2.) Alternate exercises. Like I said above, you should always alternate exercises to get a full body workout.
