Veer Lebanon Boutique Hotel and Resort | Travel

Filed under: Reviews,Travel — Tags: , , , , , , — Sahar @ 8:30 am


Our anniversary is coming! My friend told me that they celebrated their anniversary to a Boutique hotel in Flagstaff Arizona. We did the same. This summer my husband and I decided to go to Veer Boutique Hotel in Kaslik, Lebanon for a couple of days for our anniversary. I made the booking through after checking out the great reviews. The resort opened last summer but I had no idea there was a hotel there.
The hotel has a separate entrance than the pool area but you still need to pass through the poolside to reach the hotel rooms. The image above is of the private villas which also have a see-through private pool.

No More Tears With The Tangle Teezer | Product Review

Filed under: Reviews — Tags: , , — Sahar @ 7:00 am


Most of us as girls have suffered from tangled hair and tearful mornings when moms would rip our hair apart  to put it up in a pony tail, a style appropriate for school. My daughter starts school in a week and I was actually dreading the fact that we would start fighting every morning. I came across Toni & Guy’s tweets the other day mentioning the magic of the Tangle Teezer. I asked them if it was good to use on little girls, right away I got a reply that they would send me the “magic” brush for both of us to try.

I was a bit skeptical since my daughter’s hair is very difficult, and I have seen the faces my hairdresser in Lebanon makes when he sees me coming in, my hair looks very soft but the dirty secret I always had was that it was one of the worst hairs to be detangled.

I am not exaggerating when I say we fell in love with them and spent the afternoon brushing our hair in disbelief, this is the only reason I am sharing this with you, because it would be wrong if I didn’t!

Now my daughter looks forward to brushing her hair (with her special magic flower pot tangle teezer) and is even asking me to style it for her, using ONLY her magic brush. She even asked me to straighten it for her, for the first time ever. I will be getting a few of those brushes, especially since they have the compact ones made for travel. The best part is that you can use it on wet hair and even in the shower when you feel like applying a deep conditioner and brushing it through.

Try it and you won’t want to use any other brush again.

New Luxury Phone | Nokia Oro

Filed under: blog,Fashion,Reviews — Tags: , , — Sahar @ 11:05 pm


Nokia Oro is a luxury phone by Nokia made with the finest finishes: 18 carat gold contours, fine Bridge of Weir luxury leather backing, and sapphire crystal home key. The combination of the three materials is exquisite, I got the chance to try it out while I was on vacation and enjoyed it very much. I’m not usually much of a Nokia person, but the luxury feeling of this phone was different.

With most people owning Blackberries and iPhones, this unique  luxury phone is for those who like to stand out from the crowd.

With an 8 megapixel camera, 8 GB internal memory, external memory slot, integrated GPS, web browsing and all the works, this phone is a luxury piece you will enjoy very much if you want to have something different that looks as good.

All the features and technical details of the phone can be found here.

It comes in two colors, white or black.

Price estimate: around $1300.

Bare Minerals Makeup | Product Review

Filed under: Reviews — Tags: , , , , — Sahar @ 12:11 pm
Visit Durham Eyelash Extensions to get the best eyelash extensions and enhance your look.

In addition to visiting the lovely Maison & Objet in Paris last month, one of the other highlights of my trip was spending time with my best friend at Sephora. We made it a regular stop during our few days there just to make sure we didn’t forget anything. After shopping around for eyeliners and eye shadows I remembered I needed loose powder, I usually buff it over my foundation for a matte finish. On my way to the Makeup Forever stand, I came across Bare Minerals and remembered how I heard a lot about mineral makeup before. Then my curiosity made me check out their products.
