Marie Claire Arabia - What She Loves


How difficult it is to regroup all you like in a few boxes? I did the exercice for Marie Claire Arabia, December 2018 issue with the beautiful Nadine Nassim Njeim as a cover star.

1) L'atelier Nawbar - I often wear black and statement piece jewelry are my jam. Particularly this one from the Cosmic Love collection that you can stack up with other necklaces. What I also love about L'Atelier Nawbar is that you can personalize it and make it your very own with an unique meaning. They make a necklace close to your heart and not only physically.

2) Cheyma is an emerging designer based in Paris and her collections comes from another world. The world she imagines would be amazing to live in and when I wear one of her items, I feel like travelling. Could we ask more from fashion?

3) Celine bags are instant wardrobe elevators and if you own one, you probably have a razor shape taste and you don't need much more really to make an outfit.

4) Elie Saab oversized sunglasses - at the SS19 show of Elie Saab, amongst the display of sheer fabrics and beautiful prints, I also fell in love with the oversized sunglasses that I wouldn't mind wearing all year long.

5) How to win friends and Influence people Dale Carnegie - I always feel sceptical about personal development book but this one is a life changing one... if you actually finish it.

6) Valentino -  It is not difficult to fall in love with the latest Couture show of Valentino and if the collection brought a tear to Mr Valentino itself, it brought me the strongest fashion emotions as well. His collection was about being dressed beautifully and courageously and I can only relate to it.

7) Tunisia - I might not be the most impartial person to talk about Tunisia as it's the land of my parents and my favorite country to visit during the summer. More than the roots, I love the smell of Jasmin, the old Mosque of Kairouan, the clear water, the spicy food, Carthage, Sidi Bou Said and I even love the messy driving: definetly not impartial but everyone I know that visited, fell in love with it, each with different things. 

8) Dior Addict Lip Glow reviving lip balm Coral 04 - most of the time, I only wear mascara, a bit of blush and lipstick and if I really don't have the time or having make-up free days, I will only wear lipstick, sunscreen cream and big sunglasses and I will be ready for the day. I always have in my bag a magic lipstick that gives a pinkish-red that is not too strong but will still give a pop to the face. 

A special thanks to Jessica Bounni for the feature.
