As a huge fan of the brand and a regular client overseas, I was positively impressed with every little detail. The display is just amazing and the assortment is so rich! From underwear to clothing, bikinis to beauty essentials, PINK and sensational fragrances, the boutique is stocked with essentials to make every girl feel like an angel!

I specifically loved the huge video screens that play iconic footage from the Victoria’s Secret fashion show, including the 2013 edition that featured angel Candice Swanepoel wearing the 10 million dollar royal fantasy bra.

Dining in Style | The Perfect Ending to the Weekend at Tavolina

Ralph and I have been meaning to try Tavolina for ages, but it seemed like we never had the time to so. So, on a rainy Sunday night, we finally hit the relatively new Italian eatery located in Mar Mikhael.

The place is really cozy and its most eye-catching piece is the pizza wood-burning oven located in the corner. We sat at a table in the middle and directly ordered main platters when the waiter came.

I chose the goat cheese pizza with sun dried tomatoes and Ralph went for the grilled chicken with steamed vegetables. I loved loved my pizza! The dough tasted fresh and homemade and the goat cheese was delicious. Ralph’s chicken was cooked to perfection and we both loved the place’s generosity with the serving size for both mains.

I’d love to go back to Tavolina; the place is so understated and perfect for a laid back evening with your date or a fun family lunch on Sundays.

 

Tavolina is located on Camille Youssef Chamoun St, Mar Mkhael. To reserve, call 01 442 244.

Trends | Shopping Made Chic: Chanel’s Supermarket Experience

It’s the show everyone’s been talking about! Amid everyone’s recovery process following the end of awards season 2014 , Chanel managed to awaken everybody from their slumber by putting on an eccentric (to say the least) fashion show in a supermarket setting at the Grand Palais in Paris.

The genius that is Karl Lagerfeld stocked the setting with signature Coco items including pasta, eggs, cheeses, soaps, “Haute Ketchup”, “Eau de Chanel”, you name it! Shortly after, the stunning Chanel models made their way down the aisles parading the iconic brand’s latest collection (a mix of classy meets casual) as the audience looked on in awe.

Ladies who shop

 

Was it crazy? Yes. Was it an unconventional show for a luxury brand with a legacy such as Chanel’s? Definitely! Did the internet explode in response? Yes (and it still is more than 24 hours later) Was Coco Chanel turning in her grave throughout? Possibly! Is Karl Lagerfeld a genius who knows how to reinvent a brand, knowing that its clean cut up-scale image will not be touched? Absolutely!!

Red Carpet | Best Dressed at the 2014 Oscars!

To tell you the truth, this year’s Red Carpet turned out to be a disappointment to me as non of typically fearless stars took any risks for the Oscars. In any case, here are some of my favorites!

Jennifer Garner

The usually fashion shy Mrs. Affleck is finally back to her hot red carpet days thanks to this beautiful metallic Oscar De La Renta gown. Yes those ugly straps should go, but other than that Jennifer is glowing thanks to the exquisite fringe detailing, flawless waves, and enviable arm candy. Hoping she keeps it up!

Jessica Biel

While it is true that the color Jessica chose does wash her out a little bit, I’m sure that no other celeb would have looked this stunning in this Chanel Couture creation. Jessica’s body is simply flawless, and all those Tiffany & Co. sparklers add so much more glamour to the entire outfit.

Amy Adams

I really expected much more from the Adams, specifically since she’s wowed before on the Oscar’s red carpet. Nonetheless, her Gucci Premiere gown fits her body perfectly and those Tiffany & Co. danglers are to die for!!

Chrissy Teigan

I’ve never ever praised a floral gown, so this is truly a first! I simply love Chrissy’s Monique L’huiller strapless dress; effortless, comfortable, and chic! The gown perfectly compliments the supermodel’s frame who gives the dress it’s best accessory; her million dollar smile!

Naomi Watts

The Aussie actress is always a favorite of mine on the red carpet and this year was no different. Naomi glows in a Winter white Calvin Klein cap sleeved column gown and enviable Bvlgari jewels. She completes her look with an unconventional hairstyle (which I love!) and red lips.

Kate Husdon

Leave it for Kate Hudson to steal the show even if she’s not nominated. The timeless actress stuns in this Atelier Versace caped gown. Everything about this look is perfect; from the side swept do to the bling and not forgetting that cut down to there, Husdon is a walking red carpet beauty!

Lupita Nyong’o

If we learned anything from this year’s awards season it’s that Lupita Nyong’o can wear any color and any gown and steal the show! The native Kenyan takes everyone’s breath away in this custom ivory blue princess gown with deep cuts down the front and back sides. She completes her look with diamond and gold Fred Leighton jewels that make her look like the winner she turned out to be!

And that’s a wrap for awards season 2014! Who was your favorite?
