A Lifestyle of DIY + Food + Celebration

Zest it Up is a lifestyle company focused on turning everyday into special moments through DIY, great food and beautiful design. We are Sam and Chanda, the creators and Zestors behind Zest it Up.
With being 12 years apart, Sam and I might seem an unlikely pair for a set of best friends. The truth is, our friendship ignited through shared passions and interests. It’s a kind of a kindred spirit type thing. Then, five years ago, we met up over coffee and had one of those transformative conversations that you mark in time. We started sharing about our future dreams and inspiration. It was a conversation that was riddled with “Someday I want to….” After a pretty darn animated tag-teaming of great ideas, I stopped Sam short and said “SAM! Why don’t we stop saying, ‘Someday I want to…” and let’s make someday, TODAY. Have you ever had a transformative moment like that? It was awesome, and our perspective completely changed. In that moment, Zest it Up was born. A perfect expression of our approach to life. Our passion for sharing and teaching wonderfully balanced with our love of DIY, food, and celebration.
At first, we dove into letting our creativity loose through our daily blog where we pounded away at DIY projects and recipes that we hoped would inspire others. Our first project was an old desk and office chair that we rescued from the side of the road and gave a second life. We always joke that we began Zest it Up with the all-in capital of some spray paint and Gorilla glue. Shortly after, we took our design and culinary skills and began creating one-of-a-kind special events for our clients.
As we continue to teach through our blog and help clients realize their dreams, we continue to expand upon the Zest it Up lifestyle. Through video tutorials, guest writing on other reputable networks, and working with local makers to create an artisan online shop chock full of beautiful and practical pieces, we continue to cultivate the zesty lifestyle.
