Hello Honey!

We’ve previously voiced out our love for Jo Malone, and it really counts, given that fact that we are not declaring our affection towards products every day of every week, so when we say we love something we honestly do. As I write these words, I am embraced by Jo Malone’s English Pear and Fresia scent that has made sure my new home smells like a 5* hotel but the latest favorite: Honeysuckle & Davana fragrance.

It’s a Cult

Some pieces are show-stopping and Cult Gaia’s ark bag is one of them. Every blogger and fashion conscious person out there has some sort of love affair with the brand. Some like to simply just stare at it while others embrace it, but it doesn’t go unnoticed. It might be because of its simple design that screams out I am not simple or its adaptability from day to night outfits.

Is it in Lebanon?

Is it in Lebanon? That’s the question you get asked every time you share a picture of a green space or stunning scenery. Our skeptical selves are not to blame since day after day we are experiencing how our beautiful country ages, and unfortunately, not very gracefully. We are constantly witnessing how developers are threatening Beirut and other cities’ architectural heritage by replacing corners that hold so much history with modern skyscrapers. Unfortunately, we don’t feel there is much we can do but pay close attention to our surroundings and enjoy what now seems like an ephemeral place. Continue reading “Is it in Lebanon?”

Pretty Things

We all like to look at pretty things, and sometimes it helps when a team of experts makes sure you get the maximum dose of beauty while looking just inside one room. Yesterday, I had the chance to attend an exclusive preview and private tour of the beautiful pop-up house installation by Harper Bazaar at Mall of the Emirates. I was taken on a guided journey of the house that started with a healthy treat recipe, followed by a room full of fashion dreams and limited edition items, ending with beauty tips.

Taking a Break

It’s the season, one fashion week followed by another fashion week. The cities might change but more often than not the captions, poses and people remain all the same. As much as we love it, it can be a little bit too much sometimes. The unbearable truth: even nectar is poison if taken to excess. Instagram might be the culprit, fueled by people’s incessant need to fit in by wearing the latest “IT” anything. We all might fall into the trap occasionally. And it’s all right as long as we make a conscious effort to remember to take a break. Detox your wardrobe and your mind. Get comfy by wearing whatever makes you happy, be it a sweater and pants, or a long sequined dress.

Forget about Instagram, likes and the latest runway trend. You can be aware of where fashion is going, you just don’t have to always follow it. Continue reading “Taking a Break”

All Day Maxi

We usually tend to think of long dresses as a night-outfit option but there is nothing more attractive than an unexpected maxi dress during the day, even more so if it is filled with a striking print. Long gone are the days when what dictated your outfit was the place or time of outing, now it’s all in your mind. If you feel like it, just wear it! Continue reading “All Day Maxi”

Picnic Mood

There are few prints that clearly remind us of our childhood and gingham happens to be one of them. From picnic cloths to school uniforms, we’ve all seen it before but we never really thought that it will be back flooding Pinterest boards and magazine photoshoots. We are lovers of the black classic version but this red variation is just refreshing. Patched jeans anyone? We are certainly not over that trend either! Continue reading “Picnic Mood”

DETOX

Just like passion and love, creativity grows on its use. Lately and though it has been quiet here on the blog, we have been exercising our creativity avidly on both personal and professional projects, some of which we can’t wait to share on the blog. Between all the work and growing, we always crave that one-day detox where we can escape to a tranquil place and recharge. We do lots of nothings and that is sometimes all you need. Where’s your detox place? Continue reading “DETOX”

The Basket Bag

What once was humble has become an “it” item. Following the path of torn out jeans and worn out tees (pieces destined for the bin before they were classified as cool), the basket bag has now stepped in. Before waking up to finding every straw bag sold out, it was a bag that we used to use for the beach and if you were traveling to places like Bali, it would be their equivalent of a plastic bag. We are honestly delighted by the transformation. Continue reading “The Basket Bag”
