Lady in Red

After all, even clichés can be heart warming. If you think about it, they are overused because of their effectiveness or just striking beauty. Every day, as you browse the net or open that vogue issue, you will see shots of people in the sea, models with makeup looking like they have no makeup, and that yummy dessert snapped right before it was gone! Sharing moments is the ultimate goal even if we fall into the ordinary themes. What is not in the photo is as important as what is. Have fun while taking pictures and the outcome is bound to be as colorful as this dress!

The Perfect Father’s Day Gift

The generous hair, the interesting mustache, the wide leg pants…We all go through our parents’ old stack of photos wondering, what were they thinking? But what does not seem bizarre is the iconic colorful Lacoste polo shirt they used to wear. They have been around for over 80 years and they are still a favorite!

This year you can even add a twist to make it more special. When buying your dad’s favorite polo shirt (we got ours from Abc Ashrafieh), you can directly customize it in the shop by sewing his initials.

We all know they expect nothing from us, but adding a personal touch can always make them feel as unique as we know they are.

 

Undersharing my Wedding Day

It is kind of surreal how this wonderful event happened: me in his life, he in mine. It has been over a month since we tied the knot and besides these photos below, proof of my wedding doesn’t exist online.It is perhaps the fate of the people that share a lot of photos all the time to have to be more discreet to make up for all the other occasions when they are not.

Privacy has slipped woefully low in our hierarchy of cultural priorities. It has become an outdated concept reserved for the weird or high profile celebrities. It is still an option though, one that I embraced on this very special day.I should say it feels empowering to have a say on who sees the photos of the most intimate moments of your life. As bloggers, we post photos all the time but it is easy to see that the idea of sharing has been misunderstood somewhere along the way.

There are so many shoulds and musts in weddings that it is easy to feel odd when you just think differently. I can’t help but believe that if rules that apply to the criteria of the person you should marry were as religiously followed as the expected size of your dress, there would be happier people out there.

There is nothing wrong with sharing but likewise it shouldn’t be strange if you decide not to. I will email my most cherished photos to family and friends and that’s that.

Scroll, double tab, scroll. Mindlessly going through people’s lives. We do it everyday but during special life-changing moments I guess I will stick to the traditional way of flipping through your thick wedding album. And as I turn the last page, it just feels like visiting a museum, only at the end can you realize all the beauty you have contemplated.

Hanging Stories

How many times have you looked at those heels, that swimsuit or this other dress and got transported back to exactly that night where you danced without taking them off, or to that summer where you got the best tan you’ve ever had, or to that lunch where you first saw him?

Life is made up of moments. Some last for a split second and others a bit longer but we still remember them. And we remember them best by looking at the clothes and accessories that backed us up while those moments were happening.

Our closet has hanging stories and this season Oysho is part of them. We are having a great moment discovering the different lines that it has to offer and as we go, we are posting our favorite shots. We are happy to be part of Oysho’s international campaign #OyshoMoments so if you follow us on Instagram, checkout #OyshoMomentsSunset #OyshoMomentsLebanon and let us know what you think!

Discovering who I AM

Discovering how your style evolves and having online proof is surely one of the many blogging perks. You get to see where you were and where you are going, your mood swings and shopping sprees. This time we got to see how the same accessories could be styled differently, from a white dress to denim in distress. Loving the unique touch that these bohemian necklace and earrings can add to two different looks. Thank you Elsa O L’Accessoire for the I am beauties!

Liza on a Tray

Gaining appreciation for Lebanese food served outside home can be a very hard task, especially if your mom happens to be a great, if not the greatest, cook. So you know you are in an exceptional place when you find yourself eating Hindbé and Moutabbal and the only thing reminding you that you are not home is the restaurant’s beautiful arabesque modern design.

We have been to Liza multiple times before but it was only yesterday that we got to eat right from a tray. Initially launched in Liza Paris, Lunch on a tray is a great concept that offers a fast and light meal with three different options to choose from: Vegetarian, Signature and Original. They are perfect for business meetings, lunch breaks and just about any quick tasty meal.

Price range: 21,000LBP- 28,500LBP With the lovely Liza     

Shirts and Skirts

A plain shirt is the perfect match to any printed skirt. By looking at the different tones of any print, it is easy to spot which color is calling for attention. Particularly in this skirt, navy blue was the shy frontrunner and it felt only natural to add a classic denim twist.

This Skirt

Never been a ballerina but now fashion gave us grown ups the chance to relive our childhood dreams by taking out our Tutu skirts. For a while now the fashion scene has been flooded with the fluffy tulle skirts paired with high heels but it wasn’t until I came across this skirt that I gave in. The  modest tulle beautifully falls over the tight skirt beneath giving you the chance to dress it up or down and become a ballerina or a punk queen!

We Heart Unique

If you have been following us for a while, you probably already know our unending love affairs with sneakers. We will choose them over any other footwear any time, any day. So you can imagine our excitement when our fellow bloggers and friends, Elsa of Elsa O L’Accessoire and Souzana of BubbleGumFashionFace kicked off their IHeartUnique collaboration with Superga. We had the chance to play shoe dress up and create our very own pair. Let us know what you think!
