The Collection by Miss Selfridge

Though Lebanon is getting ready for a storm, last week Miss Selfridge presented “The collection” their capsule collection for Spring 2015. The designs are made for the Dubai World Cup and presented exclusively to the Middle Eastern clientele. The pieces included details and embellishments we are used to see from the brand, as well as pastel colors & sheer fabrics.

You can shop the collection at Beirut City Center and check the brand’s social media accounts (Facebook & Instagram) to know more about their competitions for a chance to win an all expanses paid trip to Dubai for two & free outfits!

Meanwhile check the pictures I took on the launch day. Stay warm & Enjoy 🙂

Flower Inspiration

I never thought of going to a flower market until I passed by one on a Sunday afternoon. Seeing beautiful colors and a free parking spot, BINGO!

I went for a walk through the market, thought it was smaller than I expected, but it was full of all kinds of colorful plants & flowers. Some I was seeing for the first time! I started taking pictures (as usual) than as a shopaholic I couldn’t fight the urge of buying some of the things I was seeing, after all it’s a market!

I ended up buying with my friend roses, pink flowers and small apple plant P.S: we both don’t have gardens!

So if you want a break from the city pollution, visit the flower market, taking place in Quarantina facing Forum de Beirut till the 30th of June where you can buy the plants & flower at a very good price! (Average price range 3-10$)
