The purpose of the event was to bid summer farewell in a fashionable way. Each blogger joined the party wearing the outfit she styled from Bershka.

The night was full of fashionable outfits, neons, great music and tasty mini-burgers.


My outfit for the party was a navy blue blazer and white top from Bershka‘s latest collection

Thank you Bershka Mena for this lovely event 🙂

Montblanc celebrates 90 years of its iconic Meisterstück

Timeless, the fountain pen has long become a symbol of the brand values: finest craftsmanship, traditional manufacturing techniques, precious materials, refined aesthetics and best functionality. The Meisterstück ranks among the world’s most famous luxury icons. Today, it also continues to assert Montblanc’s savoir-faire and vision for the future of luxury writing instruments.

Manufactured in Hamburg since 1924, the Meisterstück truly embodies Montblanc’s quest for perfection. Over the years, it became the meaningful companion of generations of scholars and scientists, poets and artists, statesmen and industry leaders alike. Its sophisticated character further turned it into a unique writing instrument: more, a reference.

True to the “Meisterstück spirit”, Montblanc unveils its Meisterstück Collection: a unique selection of sensual leather goods, meticulously crafted timepieces, refined jewellery and of course a new Meisterstück writing instrument collection that further ‘writes’ the story of such a timeless icon. The Collection celebrates 90 years of the spirit of Meisterstück, introducing icons for the time to come.

With the Meisterstück 90 Years collection of Fountain Pens, one can discover special red gold nibs and a limited time special engravings on them.

All New Self-Preserving Products from LUSH

Lush has always used natural preservatives like salt, honey and clay to keep its products fresh for longer. As a result, more than 70% of its range is entirely self-preserving – something not many other cosmetic companies could claim.


But that wasn’t enough, Lush has come up with an innovative way to re-balance its formulations, which means that the artificial preservatives can be removed from some of the products 
that you know and love, all without significantly altering the look, the feel, the price, or reducing the shelf life, and always with the freshest ingredients.


The original preserved versions will continue to be stocked, but Mask of Magnaminty, Ocean Salt, Dream Cream and Sympathy for the Skin are now available in self- preserving formulas – with lots more to come!


Mask of Magnaminty Self-Preserving

A multi-purpose mask with a mixture of gentle yet effective ingredients to clean, calm and clear the skin – now in a self-preserving formula.

Easily smoothed over the skin anywhere you like, this mask is made with peppermint oil to stimulate, marigold oil and chlorophyllin to treat the skin; evening primrose seeds and aduki beans to gently exfoliate as you remove it. There’s also mineral rich kaolin to nourish, antibacterial honey, and peppermint oil to stimulate the blood cells just under the surface of your skin to leave it looking bright and refreshed.


Ocean Salt Self-Preserving

Cleansing lime, coconut and sea salt scrub. Ocean Salt is like taking your face on a trip to the seaside for an invigorating splash in the water, then cleansing and refreshing it with lemon, grapefruit and lime juices. Fresh avocado moisturises and softens the skin, while violet leaf absolute calms and nurtures. Use it on oily skin every day and use it to refresh dry skin once a week.


Dream Cream Self-Preserving

A soothing and all-round dreamy hand and body lotion that’s suitable for everyone – now in a self-preserving formula.

This simple cream works like a dream on upset skin: cooling and soothing ingredients like oat milk, rose-water and chamomile blue oil calm down hot and itchy skin, as well as a  blend of essential oils help to nurture skin: redness-reducing rose absolute, anti-inflammatory chamomile blue, antibacterial and antiseptic tea tree and conditioning lavender.

Why every woman should have a small wallet?


I’m not sure if you were suffering lately from the same thing, but when ever i’m carrying a cross bag or a clutch, my wallet can’t fit :S

I keep on squeezing it, removing papers from it, trying several options and it never fits 😦

So I went searching for a small wallet and I found mine at Aizarani in Jdeideh.

Here are my thoughts about why you should own one!


1- It can fit in ANY BAG

No matter how small the bag, the small wallet will fit easily and you won’t worry about forgetting any of your valuables at home.

You can also add it in your big, every day bags, and don’t worry about loosing it between all your stuff, you can grab it easily!


2- Wisely designed


Even if it’s too small, but it’s designed very wisely. You can add all the bank cards that you want to use, your ID, your rewards cards…

You can put your cash money in the inside pocket, and you can put the receipts that you get when paying with your card in the pocket from the left side.

I still didn’t decide how to use the back side of it. What do you think I should put there?


3- Payments will become easier!

Yes, believe me!

Your wallet is already organized, you just take it out of your bag, pick the card or take out the cash and pay.

No more searching for your huge wallet, opening it, searching in it for cash between the zillion papers you gathered from ages ago, or wait where is my card moments?!


4- Available in different colors

Plus it comes in multiple colors: red, beige, brown… and at a very affordable price!

I got the red one, it adds life to my bag 🙂


Do you have a small wallet? Do you advise on owning one?

Share your experiences with me 🙂
