About Me

If you love life, life will love you back...

Hi there! My name is Zara and welcome to my lifestyle blog! I'm 17 and I'm from Dallas, Texas! 


I love sharing my personal experiences, tips and tricks with others because well...why not? I'm very passionate about helping others, giving advice and keeping my curls tight!  I'm very involved in school, my community and all things related to food! I'll talk about how I balance those three things in my daily life too. In this blog you'll see things from beauty tips, to how to plan your next trip, to my personal favorite things to do.

You still might be wondering why a teenager like me decided to jump online and write? Well, 2 years ago my life took a complete turn when I was involved in a car accident, I lost a lot. I couldn't play basketball anymore because I was hurt, I couldn't attend games and events at high school, I was hurt pretty bad and just retreated into my room. I spent a lot of time by myself hoping that eventually one day I would be back to normal - well let's just say I've defined my "new normal".

I get it, life is precious, and when we think we're having a "bad day" trust me - it's never that bad of a day until you lose everything that used to make you smile. So, I took it one day at a time, and decided to focus on all the good, and slowly those dark days disappeared.

Through my challenge, I've learned to embrace everyday as an opportunity and gift to be better than the day before - I hope you can see from my posts the journey I've made and can relate too. 

Feel free to email me any topics you'd like me to talk about.

Thank you for joining me in the Zest for life w/ Zara!

I look forward to having you join me on this wonderful adventure we call life!
