Winter is already dreary and grey enough as it is ! As much as there is love for a classic all-black ensemble, adding bright pops of color will keep your spirit high during the season’s coldest months.
Since Red is the color of love and Valentine’s is only days away,for yesterday’s show I wore red,to balance such a bright hue I paired it with classic suede Louboutin
When will I meet the one? We hear that question so often. All girls would like to know how and where they can find their soolmate…. WELL STOP!
Did you ever hear the Buddhist proverbial quote “When the student is ready the master will appear”; Ladies we all want to meet the one and sometimes we feel that we are born to find him; but we can’t keep on stressing ourselves with this idea!! Stressing ourselves won’t make things any better, but it is going to keep us anxious all the time.
Ladies!! The one is not someone that you can seek, and it is not someone who will seek you; you will come together by destiny and fate; so instead of searching for “the one”, search for yourselves! It is the only one you need to search for; enjoy your moments and let it go and when the time comes you will be ready don’t worry 😉
For a natural blonde , my answer is three words: Take baby steps.
If your hair is cocoa colored like most Lebanese women it’s going to take a lot to get to Marilyn Monroe golden blonde.
So to begin with, It’s best to make small adjustments for your hair to adapt: Choose a shade brighter then your color by a degree, go for low light, baby-lights, pastel hues, bronde (brown blonde) sombre or ombré .
Because trust me, jumping from Angelina Jolie to lady gaga is not easy. Besides having to let go of brad Pitt and thickening your eyeliner your hair will look like a wig.
You need to give yourself and the people around you time to accept your new blond version .
Moreover when it comes to hair Dying , I have this huge slogan in my head that says “kids don’t try this at home” . Choose a reputable salon that uses good quality products .Add to that, A week before dying it ,you should use a clarifying shampoo to remove oils and build ups that interfere with the dying. Blonde is tricky and yes you can become miss orange head in just few minutes. ( we’ve all been there and we definitely spent too much tears on it) .
My advice for the season is go for warm blonde, either ombré or strawberry blonde. Yes “California style” ombré has been the hit trend for more then three years now but It’s still my favorite.What’s best then keeping your natural root color while embracing light for the rest of your hair ?
We’ve all went window shopping where we check the storefront windows without the intent of buying, but then we find ourselves in the store. The experts behind these windows use lights, colors, and pick the right items to lure the customers in after conducting very delicate researches , while some of the brands such as Hermes and Tom Ford follow the no windows strategy for the same purpose. Each brand has its own Marketing strategy that they apply on their window shops.
While the stores are in an unannounced window competition, which one of these 6 stores do you find yourselves eager to enter depending on their windows?
Since all fragrance brands are going for a private and exclusive collection especially after the great success of the Tom Ford collection, as a woman I‘m having difficulties in choosing the right perfume for me between them all. Not to mention that these perfumes are a bit expensive so choosing the wrong one is not an option. So here is a small guide for you girls out there to help you choose the right Channel perfume for you!
A wintery perfume that fits the ladies who like heavy, strong and long lasting fragrance, touch of oriental breath, and the smell just gets better and better through the day. It’s mine and my friend Jess’ favorite!
Woody, it’s known as a noble fragrance , this perfume is elegant, luxurious and powerful. It’s made for classy women, not anyone can pull it off.
Used to be a masculine fragrance worn by sailors but Mlle Chanel transformed it into a sophisticated feminine perfume. If you like lavender and musk, it’s the fragrance for you!
Recommended for summer time, fresh and you feel like you are in the middle of a garden full of white flowers when wearing it If you are a romantic and dreamy woman, try it!
Natural yet not an ordinary perfume, you might think it’s simple at first but it hides a stunning blend of mystery. Are you natural yet mysterious lady? It’s your fragrance.
Chanel Eau de cologne
Refreshing, casual and fashionable even though it has been around since the 18th century. It’s a fruity fragrance with a light floral sensation. You can smell the citrus fruit unmistakably.
A bouquet of these chosen fragrances would be a perfect gift for a “Chanel Lady”, you can find it in 2 sizes at 160$

One Of the must haves for this Spring-Summer season is the “cloche skirt”. I made this skirt with a weird fabric mixing between satin and tafta, giving it a distinguished shiny and fluffy aspect. It is a mix between cold and warm colors making it match with all kinds of accessories.
It reflects the color of the top that you are wearing and making it possible to have a whole different outfit just by changing your top. This skirt suits all types of bodies, but make sure to wear a slim fit top to highlight the waist and show the cloche effect, and I advise to stay away from the flats.
It is casual, sexy and elegant, dare to wear it even if you have a very practical life, since it is comfy and it doesn’t need a special occasion
I was chosen by MTV Lebanon to host the biggest event in the region honoring outstanding models from around the world and that is MTV’s World’sNext Top Model 2014.
The preparations for the hosting started with meeting the girls and the jury a few days before the show. Also pacing the MTV stage to get familiar. I always want to be comfortable with the surroundings on stage to be able to be spontaneous and myself during the show, owning the stage was a must because there was no room for error.
The event was amazing, full of excitement and suspense. In such a big and carefully organized event, there are sponsors that dress the competitors and also the hosts, but as usual I preferred to dress myself which was a decision fully supported by MTV producers knowing my style and fashion sense that shows in AghaniAghani and previous events.
The dress was not easy to choose, I had to be careful to choose something decent that will not trigger the audience and respect TV’s dos and don’ts being the face of MTV for this event.
It was a challenge to pick the dress, I had to go with something attractive but not provocative, sexy but not offensive, something elegant and classy, controversial enough to be noticed and draw attention but not overshadow the event.
I finally decided on a safe black dress that has a high neck line, with black dentelle, I added a tulle to amplify the princess aspect of the dress also to add movement and volume. I wore golden close Louboutin shoes that went along perfectly. I kept a natural makeup with nude lips and my hair was in a lift hairdo.
The hosting with Kays went smoothly, chemistry and comfort were obvious. I received many positive reviews complimenting my dress and my handling of the event. I felt proud to have handled this challenge with ease on a fashion level and professional level, it was such a fruitful experience.
I had the honor to be invited to the event of the year: BIAF 2014; which is a unique festival that introduces distinguished personalities and figures that have had a special and unique mark in communities and fields all over the world.
I was so excited to be part of such an important event, but it was just my luck that it happened to be on the same night that I had an episode of Aghani Aghani on MTV Lebanon, but that was certainly not going to stop me. I wrapped up the episode and went in a hurry to the dressing room and got myself ready and headed straight to Zaytuna Bay where the event was held in the heart of Downtown.
I cloned myself or appeared from nowhere, no one expected me to juggle both work and the event but yet I did it, I felt a certain satisfaction to have been able to achieve that “mission impossible”.
For such a marvelous event, the dress was to be chosen with care, that is why I went with a classy long backless dress, that complimented my body perfectly to make it sexy and attractive. I chose the daring red color with a matching shiny golden Louboutin shoes. I’m a big fan of keeping things natural no matter the event, so I had light makeup and natural hair.
A wide media & PR campaign was carefully selected for the festival and a royal reception was held for the honorees who attended the event, including the red carpet that was nothing less than the ones held in international festivals with full interviews and interaction with the journalists , plus the wall of fame for pictures to be taken in a neat matter.
I was so astonished with the attention to details and the whole organizing of the event, I loved how everything went according to plan.
What is special about BIAF is shedding light on people who are behind the scenes, like directors rather than just actors, composers rather than singers, and producers rather than presenters. I caught myself getting emotional seeing everyone feeling appreciated for their hard work, which I see as a necessity for progress in any field.
This night was such a roller coaster but definitely worth it.
If you haven’t heard of this series yet you must be living under a rock, this drama-fantasy series that is based on the books by George Martin has been breaking records through its 4 seasons. I got it to check what the fuss was all about and I watched it all in a matter of 6 days. Each season is of 10 episodes, I got attached from the first episode and did my own game of thrones marathon and watched all episodes back to back for 6 days straight.
The outfits in this series fascinate me, especially Queen Cersei’s gowns, they reflect medieval luxury. Hair styles and braids are just amazing, my favorite is definitely princess Sansa’s red hair. The shooting sites, the castles, the décor take you to another fairytale world.
My favorite characters are definitely Daenerys Targaryan aka Khaleesi, Rob Stark and Tyrion Lannister.
Daenerys Targaryan: is the ultimate symbol of girl power, despite the tragedy that hit her family and the struggles she had to go through, she never gave up. She refused to be told what to do and what to be. She showed that leadership is not only quality of man but also of a woman while keeping her femininity and tenderness. She leads by example not by power, she shows justice and humanity in her decisions,people follow her because they love her not because they fear her. We need a leader like her in real life.
Rob Stark: he is handsome and manly. A true hero among his troops. Chose love over his interests, what real men should do. He is a fierce leader in battle yet a loving and caring husband in his home.
Tyrion Lannister: he is a clever and sarcastic imp. Never afraid to say his opinion out loud, he is perfectly honest just how a journalist should be.
This series has succeeded in mixing love, war, fantasy, magic and fashion all in one which explains its high ratings.
I’m still in the middle of season 4, can’t wait for the rest to see what is going to happen.
