Discovering Inspiration

Do we get inspired after a change or do we change because we get inspired?

The lines are blurred, at least for us, and as we are changing and getting inspired and then changing again we have decided to introduce a new category to the blog: DISCOVER. We intend to share anything from photos to mood boards to music to quotes. They might not always be our own creation but their distinctive grouping is, and that we hope inspires something new.

And while you are at it, change the road that takes you home, how much sugar you put in your coffee or the first few lines you read every morning. You are bound to discover something new.

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.

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.

Last Night in Beirut: O Monot Luxury Hotel Rooftop

Let’s face it. We can’t really look at our “Summer in Beirut” albums and not see pictures of the city’s most renowned rooftops. It has become a summer staple and we are constantly looking for the town’s new heights and sights or enjoying the iconic ones. Yesterday, we were invited to O Monot Hotel Rooftop . Right in the heart of Beirut, this new luxury boutique hotel prides itself on being the first hotel in Lebanon to be part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH) network. We were happy to be invited to enjoy a calm and relaxing night at the roof. Cheese and wine, chill music and lots of talks about upcoming projects for the blog…Can’t really ask for more!

Personalized Scent

We  are living in an era where personalization marketing efforts are found everywhere, from initials engraved on your bag, to golden chains screaming out your name. Yet something as personal as a scent is kept rather generic. And that is why we directly fell in love with IDEO Parfumeurs. While walking in Gemmayzeh street, we came across this beautiful fragrance boutique that gives you the opportunity to discover and create your ideal scent. You can tailor fragrances by taking a quick questionnaire and smelling different aromas. The packaging is just beautiful and scented candles and handmade soaps are also available and can help you personalize your home. Smell is the closest sense linked to memory and now you can make them literally unique!

The Agenda Beirut

Last month we attended two interesting workshops at The Agenda Beirut. When Tony Abou Ghazaly, founder of this boutique academy, first introduced us to the concept, we were thrilled with the idea!  It took us some time to choose among the variety of topics presented by experts in the field (Interior decoration, fashion, styling, luxury events planning, professional self-make up and many more). After giving it some thought, we enrolled in the Advance Image Consultancy workshop with the amazing Christiane Hajjar and The Luxury Fashion Events Planning with the sweetest Bouchra Boustany. It was a great month of interchanging ideas, sharing experiences, expanding our knowledge and most importantly meeting passionate people that share the same love. Thank you The Agenda Beirut!
