Discovering Bali – Part I

If you are considering a trip to Bali or simply want to savor a slice of Balinese culture this post is for you. This Indonesian island is so charmingly diverse that I couldn’t fit all the tips and photos that I wanted to share in a single post so here you have part 1. During my stay, I visited some beautiful landmarks and like all my travels, felt most alive while discovering something new. Hope this helps and if you have any questions please feel free to drop me a line. And remember, wherever you end up going, most importantly, go with someone you love!

Boots for Days

Winter feels fresh when wearing striking colors, even more so when it’s a footwear staple that carries the necessary pinch of needed hue. When shopping for these I was torn between two colors: deep blue and fiery burgundy, but then I opted for the boots that I thought I could match with more outfits. Continue reading “Boots for Days”

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?”

6 Things to Do in Antwerp

When you hear the word Antwerp, only one word might come to mind: Diamonds. It is indeed the diamond capital of the world but there is much more to this charming city than precious stones. It is only 30 minutes away from Brussels and you are bound to experience an interesting cultural contrast fueled by breathtaking architecture, vibrant shopping, and delicious chocolate!

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.

The unbearable truth: even nectar is poison if taken to excess

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”
