As a self-love advocate, Nabela continues her powerful work beyond her own platform through her self-love brand and community, Zeba. Named in honor of her mother, Zeba who taught Nabela all that she knows about beauty, Zeba strives to redefine beauty standards to be inclusive, not exclusive.
To aide all people in celebrating their bodies, Zeba created it's own sizing system. A sizing standard that transforms the traditional size chart with a new standard, where size-focused labels are replaced with words of affirmation.
Today, Zeba has an engaging & supportive platform of over 125K community members and over 5 successful launches featuring accessible, ethical and inclusive products. A portion of each purchase from Zeba is donated to JAAGO Foundation, which houses Nabela's non-profit scholarship program, Noor House.
Through Zeba, the world can celebrate their bodies, their identities and their stories with confidence.
Nabela Noor Home is an Instagram community for modern homemaking and home inspiration. From decor inspo, delicious recipes and self-care tips to the viral #PocketsOfPeace series, @nabelanoorhome is a hub for all things comfort, peace and inspiration.
Pockets Of Peace or "POP" (originally titled "Quarantine Routine") began as a medium to help Nabela cope with her anxiety during quarantine due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Upon sharing her first few videos from the series on TikTok and her homemaking community @NabelaNoorHome, Nabela received an outpouring of support from her audience. What began as a therapeutic outlet quickly became a movement focused on finding peace, thoughtful homemaking and prioritizing self-love through self-care. 6+ million followers and over 1 billion views later, Pockets of Peace is a lifestyle and globally recognized content series.
Pockets of Peace focuses on finding the good in each day and celebrating the moments of goodness surrounding us. Pockets of Peace treats every day like a special occasion and encourages viewers to romanticize the most everyday activities - because there is beauty in the little moments, and they deserve to be celebrated.
through JAAGO Foundation
Nabela and Seth began developing Noor House following a 2019 trip to Bangladesh where they visited JAAGO Foundation, a non-profit organization and school committed to breaking the cycle of poverty by equipping children with education and resources.
Nabela partnered with JAAGO Foundation to create Noor House, a non-profit scholarship program dedicated to providing 25 girls ages 5-7 with the resources and access to education they need until graduation.
By placing these vulnerable children in classrooms free of the financial burden of education, Noor House girls can focus on the only thing any kid should ever have to focus on...being a kid.
