MY FAVORITES THIS MONTH

Every month, I stock up on new items, some are delivered to my door at home or at work, for me to test and some I found online. So many of the new items I discover, I don’t know what I will do today without some of them and some I’ve learned to let go of. Those products that made it to my list here and the ones I tried and tested this month and some, when it fits, made it into my travel bag! Enjoy couple of my favorite things this month and let me know if there is anything that you fell in love with too during your own research!

ELIE SAAB PERFUME

It is a sparkling fruity flora fragrance with an orange blossom olfactive signature. It opens with a colorful twist-red mandarin, while a fruity addition of orange blossom, jasmine and pomegranate nectar fills the middle and an intense trail of patchouli finishes the scent.

Top scent is mandarin and the middle scent is orange blossom, jasmine, pomegranate nectar.

LES BEIGES – CHANEL 

The latest from Chanel. Les Beiges Healthy Glow foundation that provides a luminous finish. The foundation protects the skin from the usual harsh environment, especially between travels and the outdoors providing the most natural finish and it is not sticky!! The collection comes in with nail polish color stick blush with also a hydrating lip shine for the summer colors!

NUXE

Its formula combines Hyaluronic Acid and an Active Plant-based Complex for sculpting the eye area,  which act on the skin as mentioned below:

  • Natural hyaluronic acid holds water in the skin to moisturize and restore its plumpness, thanks to its exceptional water-retention properties. Wrinkles and fine lines are reduced.
  • The Active Plant-based Complex for the Eye Area combats the loss of tone and reduces dark circles and bags.

LE LABO

I’m a huge Le Labo die hard fan ever since my first visit to Grasse and the perfumery. I learned so much on the fermentation of roses, scents and never stopped using the products ever since. I even secretly be happy when I would check into a Fairmont Hotel only to stock up the amenities since Le Labo and Fairmont Hotels are in partnership. My favorite so far Rose 31 but thanks to this box and the new launch in Abu Dhabi of their first store, I have the chance to try out different ones!

LA MER

I can’t get enough of this one!! Enriched with the legendary healing energies of the Concentrated Miracle Broth™ and the potency of the new Concentrated Lifting Ferment, it visibly tightens, firms and refines the face and neck. Day after day, skin looks more uplifted and rejuvenated. I have always been a huge fan of La Mer and this one does not disappoint! Traveling affects your skin in ways one cannot imagine. Ever since I have used the lifting and firming Mask, I have seen changes in my face by the 3rd time.

GLAMGLOW

The limited-edition Sonic Blue GRAVITYMUDTM – which turns metallic blue as it dries – is an out of this world instant Tightening & Firming Treatment that helps face, neck and décolleté feel tighter and more lifted for glam contours. This innovative formula helps skin’s contours feel firmer and look more defined. The mask peels off to leave skin feeling tighter and more lifted for super glam radiant skin.

  • Lebanon in summer is all about exploring. Found this new hip beach bar on the coast of Byblos. The graffiti on the wall, the hanging hammocks in the water and the vibe, makes this place one of the cutest beach clubs I’ve seen so far. I love my beautiful home 🇱🇧
  • The last time I switched my laptop on was 5 days ago. The last time that happened was exactly a year ago. My phone is most of the time misplaced far away from me, my camera is still in my bag, my mind is switched off and I’m surrounded with love 💕and music 🎶. So happy to be back in Lebanon on my official summer break.
  • Home sweetest home ❤️
  • I love the the 3 AM version of people... Honest, vulnerable and real.
  • I have some sort of mental block this morning... which is a good thing so... Happy Thursday ☀️
  • This is a (long) thank you post... To my teachers.
Thank you for showing me my true strength... Not only physical strength, but more importantly mental strength.
Thank you for allowing me to let go... Whenever I feel I need a break from the world, your shala is the first place I run to... and when I’m away, it’s the first place I think of when I practice on my own, miles away. The sound of my breathing alone, takes me back to the exact spot where I place my mat... and I’m fully transported back to the stillness and awareness. 
Thank you for giving me a safe place to seek connection & allowing me to breathe... when I’m at my most vulnerable, you’ve made it ok for my tears to roll down my face in Savasana or during a posture, open up and just be me without any judgement. 
Thank you for offering so much of yourself to allow me to grow through my practice... Thank you for teaching me the true meaning of yoga, how to practice not only on the mat, but off the mat too... Yoga is a natural state of mind and not whether or not you can touch your toes. 
The light in me honors the light in you. Happy New moon

  • I’m still going through the photos I’ve taken during my trip to Menorca. Still can’t believe how beautiful the island is!
  • Last couple of days at work before heading back home 🇱🇧. What are your summer plans? Anything exciting?
  • Your memory feels like home to me.
So whenever my mind wanders, it always finds its way back to you 💫
  • Someone at work asked me the other day what my goals were... I told them to be happy. To be really really really F**** happy. What’s yours?
  • How much time do you spend planning for a trip? I still can’t get over the beautiful sunsets I’ve been lucky to experience on the island. I’ve also written two blog posts on guides to Menorca and what to watch out for prior booking. 
I do usually spend a lot of time on research for my trips, months in advance and, for this specific trip, it was a little challenging finding a place to stay that matched what I was exactly looking for. 
The search engine that worked well for me was @wegoarabia - as for flights, I didn’t have too many options from Barcelona but it worked out well. I mixed it between hotel stay and private villa stay for my 10 nights. Booked a car and took it really easy at the end!
