Welcome to my blog! My name is Farah and I’m a writer, adventurer and fashion aficionada, but a Spanish instructor by profession! I’ve decided to start chronicling my passions – namely travel and fashion – but with one underlying focus: doing it frugally! Call it a budget-friendly lifestyle blog. 🙂 Throughout this blog you’ll find journal entries from my past trips as well as posts with practical information on making these adventures happen on the cheap! Like I said, I also love fashion and hope to post my affordable finds, experimentation with trends, and – as a headscarf-wearing Muslim – hijab-friendly fashion!

I love and welcome feedback! Questions and comments are encouraged, and I’ll always do my best to respond ASAP!



Other writing: I enjoy writing fiction in my spare time and (if I’m lucky!) get the occasional story published (listed and linked below).
