Chocolate AND fashion! The most obvious ideas are the best, aren’t they?
Surreal things happen when you’re in the petite category. The other day I was at a beach party with a group of friends. Rule number one is of course to wear flats to such events.
Elie Saab, Rabih Kayrouz, Zuhair Murad, to name but a few, have undeniably propelled Lebanon into the center of the fashion world. But young emerging designers are still struggling to make it in the industry.

Springtime has arrived and so has the annual spring-cleaning, which means, at least for me, maximum excitement!
While I was listening to Fake plastic tree by Radiohead the other day, I wondered… Does gravity always win? Are fake breasts still in fashion? Can women still breast milk? And most importantly, is it ok to go braless? In fact, who can go braless full stop?
Each time I come back from the States or the UK I ask myself: why do the Anglo-Saxons have the monopole of the baseball cap? In the magazines it’s Jay-Z and Prince William, and on the streets it’s just everybody. From the high school boy to the full time mom, from the upper class teenager to the lower class teenager, all wear caps as often as jeans.
