Samsung Galaxy Note 4


I was invited to the launch of the Galaxy Note 4, an event done for bloggers at Junkyard in Mar Mkhael.

Once again, Samsung chose one of the most hype places in Lebanon and gave us the opportunity to see and manipulate the Galaxy Note 4 before anyone else.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 embraces Samsung’s heritage of an unrivaled Galaxy mobile experience. Its extraordinary 5.7-inch Quad HD (2560×1440) Super AMOLED display reproduces clearer and more vivid images with deep contrast, better viewing angles, and response times as fast as a millionth of a second. And due to its large screen, the refined Multi Window feature is able to maximize the user’s experience providing them with the key to easier multi-tasking. Users can choose how they access their applications with full, split or pop-up screens, and easily change the size and positioning of apps on the screen with one intuitive swipe.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 also sports an advanced camera system that is able to reproduce brighter and clearer images. The device is equipped with a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera featuring a Smart Optical Image Stabilizer that counter-balances camera shake and automatically extends exposure time in dark settings. In addition, a 3.7 megapixel front-facing camera with f1.9 offers a default 90-degree shooting angle and up to 120-degree wide-angle so users can take the best group shots with friends.

The Galaxy Note 4‘s wide selection of enhanced essential features enable users to get even more from their mobile device. With the Fast Charging feature and Ultra Power Saving Mode, the Galaxy Note 4 charges faster and ensures that users don’t run out of power when they need it most. The Galaxy Note 4 also offers an improved Fingerprint Scanner, to secure personal data and the world’s first UV sensor in a mobile device.

 

Making everyday tasks much faster and easier, the Galaxy Note 4’s S Pen has been specifically evolved to serve as the primary tool that users go to for common, everyday mobile device use. This new S Pen offers a much more authentic pen experience, with a more natural brush effect that perfectly emulates writing on paper with a fountain or calligraphy pen. The S Pen also introduces a more user-friendly Air Command functionality along with other intuitive features such as Action Memo, Screen Write, Image Clip and Smart Select that allows users to create and collect content with ease. A new Smart Select feature enables users to easily piece together content from different origins, and share it with ease.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 also provides users with a choice of multiple, seamless note-taking methods integrated with Samsung’s S Note application that allows everyday tasks to get done faster and more easily. In addition to typing and writing, the innovative Snap Note feature allows users to take a picture of their notes on a paper or a classroom board, and then quickly and easily convert to an S Note. They can also further unleash their creativity by jotting down their thoughts quickly with Voice Memo.

 

The Galaxy Note 4 introduces a new sleek and stylish Galaxy design language. The device features a premium metal frame with fluid curvature that seamlessly blends with the device display. The Galaxy Note 4’s 2.5D glass screen, inherited from the Galaxy S3, offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device’s rich viewing experience. A soft-textured back cover provides incredible comfort that makes it easy to control with one hand. The device not only looks beautiful, but also offers a superior grip and enhanced durability. The Galaxy Note 4 is available in “Charcoal Black,” “Frost White,” “Bronze Gold,” and “Blossom Pink” colors.

It was interesting to discover the new Galaxy Note 4, with charming people and enjoying tasty drinks and food!

Thank you Samsung for the lovely gathering 🙂

Goodbye Summer Party on the top of Square Lounge!


I am a summer person and it’s really hard for me to say goodbye to the season that is full of life, activities, parties and fun.

I should have posted this post a while ago, because the party took place at the end of September, but I still don’t want to let go…

Movenpick Hotel’s goodbye summer party was on top of the heap! We were well welcomed at the door of the hotel, with a special setting of the living fountain romanesque statue to take pictures, then we were accompanied to the Square Lounge.

The Square Lounge was full of good vibes, amazing beats and delicious bites.

Enjoying the breathtaking sea view, we were also entertained with acrobatic art and cute memes.

It was a splendid evening, wishing Movenpick Hotel a great winter season!

A Night of Fashion, Great Music & Party!


I was invited to a fashionistas event with Bershka, that was held at “Decks on The Beach – Sporting Beach Club Manara”.

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 🙂

J2 Vodka


I was invited a while ago to the pre-launching of Lebanon’s newest premium vodka “J2 Vodka“.

The event took place at the Lancaster Plaza Hotel Rooftop, Raouche, Beirut.

J2 Vodka is a one-of-a-kind vodka that combines the experience of the finest producers and distilleries in Poland with the purity of Lebanon’s natural snowmelt spring water. Capturing an eclectic joie de vivre spirit and the taste of excellence in a bottle. 

The wheat and rye for which Poland is famed, combined with Lebanon’s crisp natural snowmelt spring water gives J2 its unique, clean taste with a light, smooth finish that is truly the best in the market.

The essence of J2 stems from its unquenchable party gene; the need to always live life to the fullest, constantly reminding you to never forget how to have fun.

J2 is more than a beverage. It’s the embodiment of a thriving club culture unique to the rest of the world. Simultaneously exceptional in quality, stylishly marketable, and culturally relevant; we invite you to embrace the party gene. Love life and live J2.
This distinctive blend creates an exclusive spirit and inimitable flavor: a gratifying celebration in every sip.

The venue was chosen very well, the view from the rooftop was incredibly amazing!

The set up was well done also, bottles of J2 vodka were placed in the fountain, nice band with amazing music and songs.

The J2 Vodka is really good, you have to try it!
