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!

Bagdreaming

They say there is no harm in daydreaming, and then bagdreaming shouldn’t be a problem either. Our latest fantasy: Mansur Gavriel. Its clean lines, bright interiors and chic silhouette make it an absolute must have. Established in 2012 by Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel, Mansur Gavriel’s warm natural leather bags have become a sensation that is almost sold out everywhere. Getting your hands on a  Mansur Gavriel isn’t easy but that’s the beauty of a dream, once you do, it feels magnificent! We were lucky to find our tote bag on Netaporter.com before it sold out. But here’s some really exciting news: The label is launching e-commerce on its site early this summer! Eventually, dreams will come true!
