Welcome to Remarques.com! Some of you might be familiar with my first blog, Miss Maven, where I wrote mostly about beauty with a sprinkle of lifestyle. As my life and career evolved (and continue to evolve), I outgrew Miss Maven and needed a new space to share my thoughts and ideas. Enter Remarques! (Pronounced “remarks.”)
As I began to share elements of my life outside of my beauty expertise on YouTube and social media, I realized I have so much more to talk about! So consider this somewhat of a digital diary, where I’ll be sharing details of my beauty routine, what I’m wearing, and what I’m doing with my home and during my travels, but I also want to get raw and personal and share more about me. I’ve had so many intimate conversations with people throughout this journey on social media and I’ve realized the importance of being open and truthful; if it can help anyone else going through it, then I’ve done what I came here to do.
A quick summary of my life: I’ve lived in Los Angeles since I was 5 years old. Before then my family left Iran, where I was born, as refugees and moved to Greece for almost 4 years until we were able to get everything in order to move to the US. As a child I took up dance and tennis in school, eventually being accepted into the University of Southern California where I was a Pi Beta Phi and a Song Girl. (Fight On!) I went on to earn my Master’s degree at USC as well, studying Communication Management. The following years were my rockiest as I figured out my career path and dealt with some tough family issues. I finally mustered up the courage to begin training as an actor (something I’d always dreamt of but never had the courage to do) and booked work in TV, film, and commercials. Shortly after I started my beauty blog in 2011, and a year later, my YouTube channel. Everything since is documented on social media!
I want this to be a place where I can share the best in beauty and style, but we’ll also chat about more serious stuff. This is, after all, life, and it’s not always perfect. My goal is to inspire you to live your best life as I try to live my best life, joys and pitfalls included!
