60 Years’ Jubilee Edition: Series 7 Chair by Arne Jacobsen

Hi genies
In celebration of the 60 years’ jubilee of the Series 7 chair that was designed by Arne Jacobsen, Fritz Hansen is launching two special editions of this very chair. One in dark blue with gunmetal-coloured legs and a pale pink one with gold (real!!) legs. And as a fellow Dane, if I may give my completely unbiased opinion…I think they’re gorgeous! πŸ˜‰ I certainly wouldn’t mind having them “hanging out” in my apartment…

Elie Saab: Haute Couture SS15

Woooow! Would you just look at these amazing gowns!! They were all part of Elie Saabs Haute Couture show in Paris. He was inspired by his home country, Beirut, in the 60s, before the war had broken out and it was still considered the Paris of the Middle East.

A beautiful memory of Beirut often visits me in a dream. A loving, giving and tolerant Beirut. A glamorous one too. A beautiful memory that never ceased to inspire me – that inspired this collection. This is a tribute to the city that I love. My Beirut.
 Looking back at the eventful history of Lebanon, through its flourishing periods and its downfalls, I feel hopeful, I feel grateful.

Because you know what? In the end, those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind! The only thing that is for certain in this life is that you will always have yourself. So live a life that you are proud of.

Breakfast

Breakfast


In the morning I had a home-made breakfast bar, that I made out of peanut butter, oats, agave syrup, a little bit of almond milk and almond meal and I also stirred in a mixture of dried fruits, nuts and seeds. It was really good! I might have already eaten the whole batch I made…maybe πŸ™‚

Lunch

For lunch I had a delicious salad with pomegranate seeds and falafel, some shredded carrots and cabbage and of course lettuce.

This is one of my favourite dinners! Chicken and cauliflower rice, curry sauce, topped with raisins and nuts… πŸ™‚ It always reminds me of my childhood as my mother made it a lot when I was growing up.

In life we all experience our ups and downs, but don’t let darker days shed a shadow on the light of tomorrow! Overcoming hardships only makes you stronger and more empathetic, so embrace them just as much as the good times and know you’ll come out better at the other end.

What will be, will be. Just have patience and believe, eventually it will all fall into place. Everything will be okay in the end, and if it’s not okay, it’s not the end. πŸ™‚
