Summer packing with ÜberStreet

Summer packing with ÜberStreetLike0

This summer has been one of the best we have had so far and it is only getting better! We teamed up with Nour Khoury Jallad a traveler, fashion addict, francophile, Beirut aficionada and culture vulture, also goes under ÜberStreet, who is often found eating dried fruits and nuts lounging around in upward dog, dancing in the shower, or drinking gin and tonic while practicing her Warrior 1. (A yogi at heart) ” I own a toy poodle and about 120 pairs of shoes and can usually be found wearing 2 at a time.” To Nour, the perfect wardrobe is one that is always changing, because let’s face it – times change and so does style. “I set myself on a mission to do more with less.” We worked closely with Nour and her bohemian style to bring you the best of summer packing!

 

Favorite Beach

Tulum in Mexico, is both world famous and a microcosm of the country itself. I went to Tulum, for several days where I would go for an early morning swim or a cold Mojito in the late afternoon. The location is stunning, carved out of jungle less than 50 years ago, Tulum exists in a time warp, where the counter-cultural idealism of the late 1960’s unites with 21st-century notions of eco-tourism and sustainability. On arrival I wandered along it, marveling at the raw beauty and remoteness of the place.

In Tulum, luxury and earthiness coexist.

I am a summer gal, but the salt, sand, sun, wind, and waves can do a number on skin and hair. Here, are the products that have earned a permanent position in my beach bags.

Sun lotions in your bag

I recommend Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum, to layer under my sunscreen for longer lasting color with less sun damage; Carmex lip balm, so lips don’t dehydrate from sun exposure and salt from the sea; Clarin’s Hydra Quench Mask to rehydrate skin after its been exposed to the sun (it’s amazing); and LaRoche-Posay, Ultra Light Sunscreen, which is a must because it goes on light and dries matte with great coverage. I also recommend plenty of water, sunglasses, and a hat, since I am a little bit terrified of sun damage.

Best hair product

I use Kerastase Huile Celeste, to prevent dryness and retain shine on my hair.

Sunglasses

My Ray-Ban Waferer and my mirrored Spektre sunglasses, you can never go wrong with two pair of sunnies

 

Can’t live without

My summer pants by Sunflowers that I just love, a Missoni Mare swim suit, neither of which are too pricey and are easy to mix and match.

Summer Essentials

Some yoga outfits, a few t-shirts, my KJacques that have had quite a few wearing (I’ve worn them every summer since I bought them), a light white linen dress that I paired with colorful necklaces and bangles, some shorts I can romp around in on my bike…

A good read

Magazines, tons. My favorite remain Tank and Vanity Fair.

A touching book that I recommend, The Essential Tales of Chekhov by Anton Chekhov which are short stories, I allowed myself one a day, because they are like a piece of candy: perfect and fulfilling.

  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’. You just know that any adventure with them is what you crave for and, that no matter what you thought you wanted before, this is better and it’s no longer forcing things. One year ago today since I left, I’m missing my heart in Kenya. 🇰🇪
  • I still can’t get over that crazy sunrise color! A guide to tropical Salalah, Oman with @flydubai 🇴🇲 at @anantarasalalah (Link in bio) Happy Sunday!
  • I hosted the 6th social media workshop in Dubai today with such wonderful entrepreneurs - it lasted 6 hours! Reminded me on how I first started and how much I love my job!! Throwing it back to summer in Portugal where I took two weeks off and reminded myself how much we all need to step back from social pressure once in a while. 
2 more workshops to go for this month! Get in touch if you would like to join ❤️ Happy weekend!
  • Your addiction to over-thinking will come back to haunt you... Less thinking and more living 👊🏻
  • Le Liban 🇱🇧 #Lebanon
  • I found a little oasis in the middle of the desert 🌵 
What you don’t see on instagram is that I have sunk my feet in the sand so deep many times - ( Now that’s a workout for the year) I had my drone losing balance in high winds which resulted in my heart sinking over a dozen times, and have sand everywhere!! Even between my teeth!! But it’s all good :) Happy Sunday 😊
  • The outdoor season is back in Dubai!!! I’m so happy to have @zeebalife finally united with me! Picking me up when I sink in the sand after she’s done laughing! 😂

  • Almost 2 years ago when I took this picture after staying a week in @sixsensesninhvanbay in Vietnam. I remember I was debating whether or not I should take the shot because it was done on my iPhone and a broken tripod. Where you following my journey then? It’s feels like another lifetime but I still remember every detail of this trip as if it was yesterday. It’s funny how a single song or a picture can bring back so many memories and how some surprisingly fade so quickly.
  • I’ve got a thousand things to say to you... and a thousands reasons not to...
  • No matter what they say... There is no such thing as work-life balance. Everything worth fighting for, unbalances your life and that's the truth. So you just make it work. 💕
  • What if your pillow could collect all your dreams and in the morning, you can connect it to a screen and watch it all over again?
