About

I was born and brought up in the north and northwest suburbs of Chicago. I was blessed to have lived, worked, and studied abroad as well though in India & Middle East.

 I spent some time living in the heart of downtown Chicago while doing my undergrad. I graduated from DePaul University of Chicago, IL with a Bachelor of Science double majoring in General Management & Honors Marketing (IME Program).

I recently have gotten married to the love of my life and relocated to the gorgeous San Francisco Bay Area. After getting married I turned to the internet in hopes of advice, tips, and just honestly gossip about life after marriage however, being Indian, my life, problems, questions, and interests were different from what was being written, and talked about online. So I set out to create MrsGuptaSquared. I dish about being Indian and married while giving you stories, gossip, tips, and advice. While only married for a short time, I have plenty of advice to give and I am sure it will only continue to grow. Join me in my journey of being married and navigating through life. We’ll talk beauty and fashion as well. Two of my favorite things and because my hubby loves to eat, lets share some (mostly Indian) cooking secrets.

I love meeting and connecting with people from around the world and different walks of life so feel free to reach out to me, even it’s just to say hi!

Old San Juan, Puerto Rico | Travel Guide

Puerto Rico may be a commonwealth of the United States, but its culture stays true to its Spanish roots and Caribbean heritage. Nowhere is this more evident than in bustling San Juan, where customs and folklore continue to thrive alongside modern day conveniences. Known as “La Cuidad Amurallada” (the walled city), San Juan was founded and settled by the Spanish in 1521. Today, San Juan is the second oldest European settlement in the Americas with one of the largest natural harbors in the Caribbean. You can fully appreciate its colonial past by taking a stroll through Old San Juan. From architectural landmarks to world-class art museums, this picturesque part of the city is full of interesting things to see and do. And for the more adventuresome, you won’t want to miss the massive El Yunque Rain Forest, once believed to be the Fountain of Youth.

Dealing with breakouts? I got you.

Breaking out is no fun. Whether on your face or on your body, breaks outs can lower self-esteem and sometimes even be painful!  Trust me I’ve been there and even still have my days or sorry my face has its days. I broke out a ton when I was a teenager and tried everything on the market. No joke. So I am sharing with you all some amazing skin care products for acne and blemish prone skin that WORK. Note I now have normal to combination skin with some dryness on my cheeks and these products still work wonders and keep acne and blemishes away.
