Owned by the two sisters “Lea Majdalani Ayoub” and “Jessica Majdalani”, The Silly Spoon is a fresh and contemporary tableware and home accessories store. Charming and seductive from the moment you walk into the store, tableware pieces and accessories catch your eye at every corner.

Lea and Jessica handpicked every item with today’s modern style in mind, making sure there’s something for everyone. The Silly Spoon is filled with an elegant and enchanting selection of pieces.

My favorite section was the tea sets of course, they have mugs with different sizes and colors.

Meet The Blogger #8: Lara from Lara Speaks Style


Today’s blogger shares with us her passion with fashion, her favorite styles and the latest trends, get to know more about her

1- Can you tell us more on how you decide to start your own Fashion Blog?

 I have always browsed so many blogs and thought of them as a wonderful way to portray my passion for fashion. However, I thought that they needed lots of connections in the fashion industry which I didn’t have. Later on I figured out that a blog needs effort and passion and you can always start from the bottom in everything, so I decided to go on with follow my dreams in finding my own space in the massive fashion industry. I started my blog in the first day of the year 2013 as a new challenge and adventure in my life.  Today I proudly say that the best step I ever made was following my dream and starting my fashion blog, and I encourage everyone to take this step and never doubt his/her dreams.

2- You’re more into Style, what are the colors that you like to combine together the most?

Playing with colors is something I really love. I usually love to add this pop on color in any clothing item and this is something I really stress on the blog because going matchy matchy is not always the key for a stylish look. I don’t have any specific favorite color combination but I like to do it in most of my outfits to create an edge.

3- Who/What is your biggest source of inspiration?

Ever since I was a little girl my mother was and still is my biggest source of inspiration. Each day I learn more from her since her style is timeless and very creative. After I discovered more about the blogging scene I found myself getting more inspiration from bloggers like Chiara Ferragni, Kristina Bazan, Shea Marie, and many more. However, my favorite blogger is Alexandra from Lovely Pepa since we both have petite bodies and I can get ideas from her on what can be suitable for my body type. Moreover, she is always updated and I love how she combines colors and prints in a very stylish way.

The weather was perfect that night, it wasn’t windy and not very hot.

There was next to us a group of girls celebrating a bachelorette, enjoying their time, dancing and having fun, then the men came after midnight.

 

We had really good time!
