You cannot be feeling the Christmas spirit if not by getting stuck in the crazy traffic lights of the highway. Yet, far from it being a kind of hassle like morning work traffic, people seems okay with it but mostly happy for going Christmas shopping.
This year, Marc Jacobs is being generous; for our gift purchase they gave us phone studs that you actually plug in the earphones hole.
I thought... good way to defend yourself with all these stories of mugging coming up. You see, here in Lebanon, we don't have the pepper spray invention. Violence is always the answer for violence (sarcasm).
Besides that, I was really disappointed with Abercrombie and Fitch because I ordered clothes worth more than 300 dollars, which isn't nothing, to San Francisco, at my cousin's appartement (so he would bring them with him when he's back among us and he is now). Problem is, Abercrombie packed the wrong package, 2 XL Men sweatshirts. I'm soo mad I was waiting to wear this sweater and this sweatshirt and that ripped-off jeans. But I'm also mad because I'm not sure if Dad is going to be okay with me ordering again... what would be the probability of this to happen again? Regardless, it's a really bad experience with online buying. I just really hate this employee who packed the wrong order because my order was amazing. Yes, I'm getting emotional. And now I can't help thinking about all those bad reviews of service that Abercrombie and Fitch have on the Internet. At least, I got this beanie from Urban Outfitters!

I can finally breathe after these two stressful weeks of preparing for my end-of-semester final exams. And I allowed myself to sleep in this morning until 3pm and January is ahead of me. No, January is going to be far more productive and I plan to launch a new blog about media and marketing while of course keeping this one. On this final point, I will leave you with the outfit I wore on the brunch at Mondo two weeks ago.
Actually I just remembered something funny that hapened that day and I'm going to tell you about it before I jump to the outfit details.
While I was posing for my brother to snap the few pictures for me, my car arrived and the Valet pulled out of it and waited patiently. My brother and I were just a few steps farther away from the car and were about to reach it, when, suddenly, a middle aged man started crying over his car and shouting at the valet with anger and misbelief "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY CAAR?!" He was nearly dancing, he got closer to his car, and noticing better the broken rear view mirror and the huge scrap on the side, he kept on yelling after the valet who was turning his back to him, waiting to hand me my car. "Ma32oul bta3mlo hek bel Phoenicia???!!" (In arabic, "is it possible that u make this kind of mistake in a service of a luxurious hotel?") The man must have thought how rude the Valet man is, even ignoring him!
Then all this happened in a matter of seconds: I approached to get into my car, and the man realized it was My car, not his! I saw him step back, hiding his face in the shadow from the daylight, humiliated and embarassed of himself for pulling such a scandalous scene in front of the chic uptight clientele of Phoenica. His face turned tomato red and he then started apologizing to me because he thought it was his car, apparently he has the same one--VW white Golf. My brother and I were laughing so hard, but we could barely let out a sound from how much we both ate. On the road back home, we laughed again and again. hahahaha I can still laugh!
(P.S. I should say that it was a truck that hit my car and made these scars, anyway I will put it at the garage during this holidays)
For this day out, I wore the lace black leather Isabel Marant x H&M pants, H&M assymetric beige shirt, and Zara Merino wool coat. Adding on this, I wore my heeled Repetto flats and Fendi tote. Oh and my new Gucci watch, leaf bangle, Lapis Lazuli beads bracelet, and Pandora charms bracelet.

Besides that, let's have a look at the buffet menu through the pictures, which is btw really worth its 55,000L.L.
Personally, I liked the chocolate croissant, which had a hint of hazelnut, and the vanilla cream ones. They also had croissant with sausages but I didn't like it because it was somehow dry.

I celebrated my birthday with my closest friends last Friday at Maki Gourmet, a sushi restaurant, then went down to Mar Mikhael to continue our night.
