Pretty Little Surprise

When it comes to beauty products, we are constantly looking for the newest of the new, the best of the good, the hippest of the trend, or simply just what works for us, sometimes just to know more about it and more than often to try it and see if our search yielded our new favorite thing. So it feels really good when someone helps you do the homework. Last week we met up with the team behind a new concept in Lebanon, Pretty Little Box, and we instantly felt that the needed backup had just arrived. Continue reading “Pretty Little Surprise”

Bohemians, Perhaps

They say people have the tendency to beautify things they have never actually seen. We have the tendency to fall digitally in love with a bag only to be disenchanted the minute we are done unwrapping the delivery box. We have the tendency to love social media personas we have never met, only to shake their hands and start wondering. We haphazardly use terms like bohemian and gypsy without realizing they had a different meaning long before they started appearing on glossy magazine covers. Continue reading “Bohemians, Perhaps”

Revisiting

It had been a long while since I last spent more than two days in my precious Ehden. City life gets smoothly on the way and you just completely forget what it was like to spend a Wednesday morning climbing the natural reserve.

It had been a longer time since I was not able to do a legitimate ponytail and once you chop off the excess you realize why your mom insisted on letting it all go before school days returned. And wearing dungarees, well that has also been a while. Continue reading “Revisiting”

DIY Tassel Earrings

Your Own

In this day and age buying something is no longer the way of making it your own. It is only when you spice it up by giving it your personal touch that it actually happens. And no easier way to do it than by adding badges. The idea is to start off plain: a white or striped shirt and then collect things to decorate it from fruits to bats to anything you can find! Continue reading “Your Own”

DIY Pom Pom Hat

If there’s a season to undertake DIY projects, then it must definitely be summer! A few posts back we shared our love for the Pom Pom sandals and given the happiness that it created we decided to share this customizing passion of ours again but this time by partnering up with our dear friend Elsa from Elsaolaccessoire.com. Her appetite for colors is only topped by her love for fruits, which she now happens to have a head full of, literally! You can check her take on the most loved summer item, the straw hat, on her latest blog post HERE.

The Speed of Scent

It is no surprise that the sense of smell can awaken our deepest memories in just an instant. Vivid images start overflowing our minds as we smell the Turkish coffee we use to drink back home, the softener that our mom dutifully poured into our school uniforms and the perfume you were wearing when you had your first kiss.
