Happy November puzzle friends! It is officially Marwa’s favorite time of the year! The days are thankfully shorter, the nights are wonderfully longer, the air is chillier, and all the holidays are coming at us with all their joy, beauty, magic, and sparkling lights. It is quite literally the most wonderful time of the year.
One of the holidays coming up is Christmas, and boy do I LOVE all things Christmas! One of the many things I adore about Christmas is… you guessed it! Advent calendars.

Advent calendars can be traced back to the 19th century when families would mark every day in December until Christmas Eve with a chalk line. Now that we did some learning, let’s get to the creativity I’m about to share with you...CONTINUE READING

One of the funnest, most age-old questions I noticed people love to ask after the formal “What’s your name?” and “What do you do for work?” is, “What’s your zodiac sign?” The best part is whether you believe in astrology or not, the conversation always turns interesting and entertaining - the comparison of traits amongst signs, compatibility of signs, or the listed traits that either describe you a tee or have it absolutely wrong. Whichever way the pendulum swings, I have always found it so fascinating to talk about astrology and to listen to people passionately take astrological signs to heart...
June gloom is upon us and I must admit… I absolutely LOVE chilly, gloomy, and gray days. It's widely been known that Los Angeles, the place I call home, is all sunshine all the time. This has been true since the dawn of L.A.s inception. What people don’t know is that the last 3-4 years, Los Angeles has had a very gloomy and chilly June. As we speak, the weather has been hovering at 68 degrees. Wanna know a secret? CONTINUE READING

Finding time in-between the celebrations to do your daily advent puzzles can pose a challenge for some of us. CONTINUE READING
