Like many Lebanese, travelling is part of my DNA. Born in Beirut, I was raised in Geneva and decided to settle down in Paris where I studied Art History and ultimately got an internship at Christie’s. After many years in France I moved to my birth country to get in touch with my roots. In Lebanon, I worked as a journalist for the daily newspaper L’Orient-Le Jour and as a freelance writer for the fashion magazines L’Officiel Levant and ELLE Oriental. Though I deeply cherished my journalistic experience, I changed careers to enter the jewelry house Maison Selim Mouzannar. As uplifting as both industries are, I chose to leave the country and multiplied trips between NYC, Paris and London. The constant “hobo/lost in translation” state I put myself into finally came to an end when I realized I could combine my true passions - writing, travelling and fashion - into my own project. Thanks to friends and family, my little pusherman as I like to call them, I took the plunge and started this blog.

Expect a lot of Frenglish since the masochist I am decided to get out of her French writing comfort zone. But expect also a lot of travelling, cool address sharing, nice tips giving and serious fashion spreading, all wrapped in “West meets Middle East humor”.

I hope you’ll enjoy the ride!
