One day, the Courriel reached my office with the box in his hands, I was so excited to open it and see what’s inside ūüôā

When I first opened the box, glitter popped out adding to it the magical Christmas spirit, then there was a cute little mug, the Pretty Little Mag, BB Cream by Garnier, Black Liner by Maybelline, a natural black soap by PURE, ia interapothek intimate gel, and essence nail polish.

 

1- BB cream by Garnier

The first BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector by Garnier is a daily 5 in 1 moisturizer that combines the benefits of both day cream and make up mineral pigments and Vitamin C.

With your  morning application, you get these 5 amazing results:

  • Even skin tone
  • Corrects fine lines and imperfections

  • Hydrates for 24 hours

  • Protects from UVAs and UVBs with SPF 15

  • Brightens your skin instantly

I still didn’t have the time to try it on my skin, I will be updating you about the texture.

 

2- ia interapothek intimate gel

Developed from natural ingredients, this intimate gel contains oat extract known for its hypoallergenic and anti-inflammatory properties.

Besides its soft action, it has antiseptic properties and ensures a slightly acidic pH that maintains the ideal physiological conditions for any woman.

3- essence nail polish

I got the Glamour Girls shade from the metal glam collection by essence.

It has an easy brush for an easier application, plus it dries really fast, perfect for nail art.

4- The colossal Kajal by Maybelline

shooting 020

The¬†Colossal Kajal¬†is Maybelline’s¬†best-selling with a new 12 hour formula.

Enriched with Olive Oil Esters, Vitamin E, Vitamin C derivatives and conditioning agents, the Colossal Kajal had the deepest black pigments, a unique tip and an exclusive color fix formula to give intense black color.

I still didn’t try it also, because i’m not a fan of black liners.

5- Black natural soap by PURE

6- The Pretty Little Mag

The magazine has information about the products, tutorials, recipes, ideas for activities…

 

It’s nice to have a surprise box with beauty products each month, don’t you think?

Monday Office Look


The storm is gone, the sun is shining again and i’m back to wearing pants.

I missed my shirts¬†and my gilets,¬†took the time to iron them yesterday, and got today’s outfit all calculated in my mind!

I matched my classical black pants by Med available at GS Stores, with my grey shirt from LTB By Littlebig available at BigStar Shops, and my black gilet from Tally Weijl.

To add a chic touch, I had my striped hat on from Mango

But what upsets me is that after taking the time to iron the shirt, you wear it for like 5 minutes and it’s a kaput again ūüė¶ Does it happen to you?

If you’re wondering why my hand is always in the way in my pictures lately, it’s because I’m taking my own photos. I find it a fun way, to improve my photography skills and to distract¬†me from¬†my fear of¬†the cam!

Happy Monday everyone!

5 Things I learned From The Dressember Challenge!


For all those who were following my pictures on Instagram, saw the dresses I wore during the whole month of December.

For those who missed it, you can check my introductory post about the Dressember 2014 challenge here and the last dress I wore here.

And this is what I learned from this wonderful challenge:

1 – I love dresses, I find them so easy to wear. And since I was deciding which dress to wear the night before, I managed to sleep 5 minutes more in the morning ūüėõ and it¬†helped me become a more organized person.

2 – Pantyhoses should be created in a way to make the lives of women much easier. It would be great if it can be indicated which is the front side, which is the backside (Only Marie France had a sign). Because sometimes when it goes wrong, it can make your life hell trying to figure out how to wear it the right way…And with all the technologies out there, can’t they make the sheer pantyhoses unbreakable?!?!

3 – I discovered new fans to my blog, and we actually exchanged opinions about my dresses and we agreed that brown doesn’t look so good on me. Black and Red are the colors that suit me best!

4 – By adding accessories, like cardigan, scarves, hats, and different pantyhoses¬†each time, the dress looked completely different. ==> If you get creative with the items you have in your closet, you won’t need to buy a lot of new items each season. Keep your money for the sales period ūüėČ

5 – People are willing to collaborate and especially when it’s for a good cause. I was so happy to meet the creative Sarah Bond and had the pleasure to wear her¬†signature Electric Thoughts dress!

Here’s a quick roundup of all the dresses I wore

I hope you enjoyed my Dressember challenge this year!

Would you join me next year?

Mum knows my love for colors, and to give me the fashionista look, she chose a winter fabric but with colorful circle prints.

 

I paired it with a black top and black heels and voila!

 

Love you mummy ‚̧

I was invited to the launch of the newest collection by Alice Eddé, in Green & Glam, Achrafieh, Zahret El Ehsan.

greenglam-10-141024065004365

Once again, the Alice Eddé collection garners its inspiration from the spectrum of  colors blooming in Alice’ own garden.
Rich,  deep and exotic,  the mauve, emerald and  heather jewel  tones  of Winter’s
cyclamens,  violets,  primroses  and  evergreens  are  celebrated,  and  contrasted
with  classic  blacks.  This  allows  the  punctuations  of  color  to  really  pop,  and
brighten any outfit this season.

 

The collection comprises a full range of sizes, from tote messenger bags and lux 
backpacks  to  clutches  and  smaller  leather  goods, including  laptop  sleeves  and
phone covers.
Handcrafted by  traditional artisans in Byblos, Lebanon  from  the highest quality
nubucks,¬† leathers,¬† lambskins and¬† fabrics,¬† these¬† elegant¬† yet¬† fashion‚Äźforward
statement¬† pieces¬† are¬† designed¬† in¬† the¬† distinctive¬† Alice¬† Edd√© ‚Äėenvelope‚Äô¬† style,
which can easily take you from midday to soirée.

 

I loved the collection, especially how the bright colors were introduced (pink and yellow), and I appreciated the small-sized bags, that you can carry with you everywhere.

My favorite bag from the collection is this one, mixing golden and black.

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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 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‚Äės 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‚Äôt 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‚Äôs 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‚Äôs 2.5D glass screen, inherited from the Galaxy S3, offers extra protection while perfectly complementing the device‚Äôs 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,‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúBlossom Pink‚ÄĚ 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 ūüôā
