Dress Your Petite Frame

If you have a petite frame, you might find it less than easy to wear clothes off the rack without some tailoring. The reason is, petites have different proportions than women of average height, and most items we see in shops are not meant for the former.

In Lebanon, there is a lack of shops with a petite section. I have a few tips that can help you when you get dressed or the next time you go shopping, to make do with what is available in stores.

The major illusion you want to create is height. So for starters, avoid cutting your body in half with colors or fabrics, transfer the cut line higher instead, this will elongate your legs and torso. Avoid too much color combination and patterns, these styles need height and space on the body, and they will only make your frame appear even smaller, so go for monochrome outfits. On that note, you can wear stripes, but make sure they are vertical, as they will make you seem taller. Steer clear of too much layering so remove all unnecessary bulk. read more

Boho Casual

You don’t need to say the word ‘vacation’ in front of me twice to get me to bring out my colorful wardrobe items. Two days ago was Labor Day, and as a working girl myself, a midweek day off meant I could spend time with my hubby and baby out in the sun. Destination Zaitunay Bay in Downtown Beirut. I changed my clothes a couple of times before heading out, and finally settled on the choice I will describe below. As a mother of an almost 9 month old, I need to keep things simple and easy, no over the top outfits when an entire day of walking, having lunch, feeding my baby, sitting on the grass, and taking turns pushing the stroller is involved. I have to find a way to give off the vibe that I want while staying practical. Therefore I went for boho casual. read more

Restaurant Review: Pizzeria Margherita

I love good food just as I love to evaluate it.

My husband and I are big foodies and you’ll find us trying out every new restaurant. I have only started blogging for a month, so I cannot review the food I have eaten over the course of many years, varying from street carts to fine dining, so I’m gonna have to start all over again (youppie!)

For my first humble review, I chose Pizzeria Margherita in Blueberry Square Dbayeh. I first tried Margherita when it opened a few years ago in Gemayze, I wanted to see what all the hype was about. I remember ordering a chicken platter and my husband a pizza, and we both wondered what the fuss was about because we HATED the food, it was bland and tasteless. So we decided to give it another chance. read more
