Wazir Khan Mosque – Lahore, Pakistan

*This post contains affiliate links. Clicking on them will not cost you anything.* The last place on our historic architecture tour in Lahore was Wazir Khan Mosque We almost didn’t go here due to lack of time but I’m so glad we did because I absolutely loved it! I think it’s underrated, unfortunately. Badshahi Mosque is usually the more talked about mosque but I think this one deserves just as much praise. Wazir Khan Mosque was commissioned during the reign of Emperor Shah Jahan and is considered one of the most ornate decorated Mughal-era mosque. The exterior of the mosque is embelished in Persian “kashi-kali” tile work and the interior is decorated with Mughal and punjabi style frescoes.

Walking through so…

I think it’s one of my best works yet! It was for a very close friend of mine (who I’ve known for more than 20 years) so of course I was going to go all out! You are probably thinking, another tea party? But you posted a tea party setup earlier this year! I know, I know, but just hold on because this one is unlike the one I did before! And once you see the photos, you’ll understand.  Okay, now that you’ve seen all the photos, I’ll give you some tips and tricks on how to set this up. Tips: 1.

Shalimar Gardens – Lahore, Pakistan

One of my favorite historic spots in Lahore is the Shalimar Baagh (garden).  The construction of this mughal garden began in 1637 C.E. and completed in 1641. It was designed in the lifetime of Shah Jehan and it mimiced the one built in Kashmir by his father, Jahangir. These gardens were laid out as a ‘charbagh’ meaning quadrilateral garden based on the four gardens of Paradise mentioned in the Quran.

24 Hours in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin

Okay, so I decided to take a break from my Pakistan posts and share with you what I’ve been up to this summer so far. For me, summer started after the month of fasting ended! As soon as it did, I wasted no time in planning a short trip out of Chicago to a place I had been researching about ever since I moved here, Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. My nieces were visiting also so it ended up being the perfect little 24 hour family vacation! Strawberry Picking at Apple Barn Orchard & Winery I have also been wanting to go fruit picking for ages and when I looked up things to do near Lake Geneva, this barn kept coming up for apple and strawberry picking. Since we were just in time for the strawberry season, that is what I planned to do first. My nieces love, LOVE strawberries so it…
