Hi there! I’m Deema, an interior design addict and blogger wannabe.

Introvert to the core, but I'm pretty sure I have everyone fooled I'm not.

The Birth of Pretty On Fridays

I started my blog a couple years ago because I needed a creative outlet from my stressful day job. 

About 2 and half years ago I sat at my coffee stained kitchen table, and I pressed “publish” on my very first blog post. I had no idea what the hell I was doing, but I was so excited. The name came from a conversation I had with my sister. She and I always eat healthy all week and Friday was always our "cheat" day.  It's the day we looked forward to the most, the work week was over, we felt our best, and we got to do our favorite thing on earth, EAT FOOD.  And there you go, Pretty On Fridays was born. 


The pressure to join Social Media.  Damnit I'm such a sheep.  Ok, fine, I kind of like it.

I quickly realized how difficult it was just to get SEEN. I decided to text my cousin who had a successful business for some advice on promoting my blog.

She suggested I join Instagram to promote my blog and I rolled my eyes. I was NOT “a social media person.” Keep in mind, my brother had been trying to get me on Instagram for almost a year prior. I mean, I REALLY resisted. Well, spoiler alert, I joined Instagram and now have the best community of humans I will forever be grateful for.

Not to brag, but I could beat most of you in an eating contest.  Pretty sure that's why I'm eating in most of my photos.

My mantra

"The biggest challenge in life is to be yourself in a world that is trying to make you like everyone else."

Early mornings are my favorite.  Yes, even on vacation. 


I love food and I could beat you in any eating contest--ask my husband, he can attest to that.


I have an irrational fear of steep hills.  Seriously, don't laugh.


I love playing pranks.  Ask some of my co-workers, they're still traumatized.
