"Blondes have more fun" : The Legacy of Sabah

Sometimes when I am writing, I realise that I need something different than classical music. So I put on something different, like vintage Persian and Arabic music, the kind that my grandparents would have listened to during their youth. These songs are generally love songs, and are written on very beautiful music. 

Lately I’ve been listening to Sabah a lot.

The Contouring Question

Version française ci-dessous

We’ve all been hearing for years now about this inevitable, Kardashian-endorsed make-up trend: contouring. And ever since I started looking into it and even experimenting with it, I’ve had very mixed opinions about it.

The Little Olive Dress

Version française plus bas

Ever since the spring came in like a wrecking ball has starting showing its signs, I have had, in my mind, a silhouette wearing an olive-green shirt-dress.

Lebanese Summer Longing

Version française plus bas

Between extreme temperature changes in DC (snow this week-end, 22 C today)(a cold that’s forcing me to write this post and the accompanying illustration from my bed, surrounded with tissues, vitamin C, chocolat, and mint green tea), and endless my heart troubles, I find myself more and more with the need to escape. 

Escaping somewhere that exists halfway between reality and what my imagination tends to romanticize even more: a beach somewhere on the Lebanese coast.
