My sister recently got a dog, a beautiful little one named Willy. I caught myself calling him Villy! (w=v in German). He is really soooo cute, I love him. So I bought myself pets too: An elephant and a horse. From Zara home. Ok, they’re not real, they’re just embellishing my book shelves. Oh, and I bought plenty of studded items from Zara too. This is a major trend in Lebanon at the moment. Plus the chain ring trend. Have a look!
My growing little zoo (there are more animals to buy!)
My studded shoes for fall
A lovely golden flower bought at my favorite jeweler Zoughaib (here)
Super delicious sweet pumpkin bought at a women’s cooperative (to be posted soon)
Berlin, my other “Ich”! As you may have read in the “about” section, I am Lebanese-German. In Lebanon, my heart beats in Beirut, and in Germany, it beats in Berlin (ok, and Munich!). Berlin is so “in style” at the moment. Apart from the popular tourist attractions (ouuuf where shall I start!), I looove the innumerable little cafés at every corner, the cool clubs and “Strandbars” (like here), the charming little boutiques and huge shopping malls, the amaazing museums and art galleries, not to forget the beauuutiful castles… I attended a seminar there some time ago and had only very little time to go around. Here are some pictures of those happy moments
Romantic touches of rose in the morning…
More touches of rose from Zara. My favorite ballerina flats ever, by the way!
Twin mini cooper cars at lunch time. Is this a coincidence??
A short break at the popular café Einstein (here)
An absolute highlight: My personalized chocolate bar at the Rittersport “museum” (here)
I need to improve my English, that’s why I try to read (reading?) the Economist regularly. Sometimes in a café, like here at café Lina’s, with its nostalgic view at these Lebanese flags, the old (and very slowly moving) bus and that cute oldtimer telephone box. The flags replace the huge Christmas tree and will soon be replaced by ads on the occasion of Ramadan. But the very best thing here is the Zara joy box on the left, where I bought a laced dress, a studded shirt, sparkling pumps… Where did I learn those English adjectives? Not from the Economist anyway!
Have you noticed my new category “Clubs & Lounges”? Don’t miss my upcoming posts about hidden and unhidden spots of Beirut’s nightlife! And did you notice the clutch in my post about B018? Here it is, my one and only! Plus some other things that are bringing me joy at the moment! Have a joyful weekend
My one & only! Bought at Aishti (here) long time ago. I just l-o-v-e it!
A wooonderful gift from a dear friend. This candle smells sooo good!
Sablés & co. from the beautiful Café Ginette in Gemmayzeh (see my post here)
A really nice book that reminds us to behave well, specifically in Beirut (here)
