Wow, more and more I’m realizing just how “quick to judge” I am..

One of my colleagues at work brought in a copy of the Aizone magazine/newspaper..and I didn’t even give it a chance..well I guess the tag line, “You don’t exist until someone talks about you” threw me off..as well as the name of the publication “Gossip.”

You don't exist until they talk about you!!

But, despite this, I flipped through the pages,,eager to see if this publication was something more than just another fashion magazine reminding me how not “with it” I am..

aaand..I was presently surprised to find feature articles like these two below..  One about Beirut’s lack of places to actually “dance,” as well as one about fashionable Eco friendly living..

Where do we Dance???

What do you think, have you ever come across it?  I think they should consider renaming the publication and changing the headline to appeal to a broader audience..truly, there were some excellent pieces in here!

Plush it Baby, Plush it Good.

So..I was walking in Hamra, when I noticed that literally..after every few feet.. there are yellow signs advertising a new Lebanese blog.  Yellow being my favorite color and all, I decided to snap this shot so I could remember the address later..

The poster reminded me of Ivy’s poster encouraging single Lebanese ladies to “make their move” on Valentines day..

Anyway, I decided to check out the blog, almost positive that it was yet another superficial blog about being fashionably fabulous..and was pleasantly surprised when I read their “About Us” section:

We don’t dress up for the gym.  We don’t drive the most expensive cars.  We take public transportation.  We sit at the bar.  We don’t pop champagne.  We aren’t daddy’s super rich girls.  We shop from outlets and regular store…And no we don’t go on a sprees in London, Paris, New York..We are College Students.  We design our clothes, or try at least.  We love the arts.  We love to party.  We be PLUSHIN’ Beirut Town – Hail PLUSH*

This blog is about those effortlessly chic people we love to hate..those people who manage to throw together just about anything and make it work…but mostly, this blog is about being yourself.

Just wanted to give a shout out to Plush, and tell them I like their stuff..check out their blog by clicking here.

I mean, just check out their photos!

Ice Ice Baby

I got a gift this week.  A yellow Ice watch, like the one below..

I didn’t really know what to say to my friend who gave it to me..You see, I don’t really DO yellow, or big watches for that matter.  Favoring a more minimalist, classic approach to fashion, I’ve always been one of those whose wardrobe consists of black, white, and grey, or some version of the three…. Oh, I also don’t do patterns, or stripes..

Yup. I’m boring, and out of style.

But, then again, I’ve started wearing bright Coral nail polish on my hands, a practice I was vehemently opposed to prior to my arrival in Lebanon..my reason being that colored nail polish was only meant for the feet, and that any other usage was..well..just TOO much.

I decided to do a little bit of research on the brand and was surprised to find out that the unisex Ice Watch is designed in Belgium, manufactured in Shenzhen and distributed via Hong Kong in more than 27 countries in Europe, Asia and the US and through more than 500 sales outlets worldwide.

Only some of the many colors the Ice Watch is available in..

All I need now is a pair of Ray Bans, a Neverfull Louis Vuitton bag..and my transformation into a Beiruti woman will be complete!
