From Beirut to Dubai by MamaRowana


So here I am 1 month after writing my last piece about Lebanon not being my ‘happily ever after’ story. Since then, I left Beirut to the states to visit my family and to be a bridesmaid at my best friend’s wedding. Shortly after, my family and I took the big step to relocate to a new country, to a new city we could call home. This place is drum roll….Dubai (cue ‘eyes rolling’).

Yves Saint Laurent Makeup Step-By-Step Review

A month back, Yves Saint Laurent invited me to their beauty counter at ABC Ashrafieh for a makeover and to test out some of their makeup collection. I was already obsessing over their Le Teint Touche Éclat Foundation which I reviewed here back in July so I knew I was in for a treat. Here is the final look. You can follow the steps below to achieve it

Run For Sarah el Khatib At The Beirut Marathon

The Beirut Marathon Association has opened two extra days for registration for an exceptionally awesome lady, Sarah el Khatib. Sarah was at TEDxLAU this year and delivered an inspiring talk on her fight with cancer, before she died two weeks later. I will be at the Beirut Marathon this year just like every year, and I will be running for Sarah.
For those who missed the deadline and still want to register, here’s a [link] to do so.
For those who missed Sarah’s talk, check it out:

Last Beach Day

 Not much happening these days. After the rain of last weekend, we’re back in sunshine mode. A friend and I decided to enjoy one of the (probably) last beach days. It’s not that the weather isn’t good enough to be on the beach after today, but the beach resorts pack up their furniture, close the bar, and turn off the water. That means that from now on we’ve got to go to the beach Dutch style; on a towel in the sand, bring your own food and go home all salty, sticky and sandy. We’ve become too Lebanese to deal with that.

Lebanese Rodolphe el-Khoury Named New Dean of the University of Miami School of Architecture

It seems I missed out on yet another achievement for a Lebanese abroad, as Rodolphe el Khoury was named the new dean of the University of Miami School of Architecture back in May 2014. El Khoury is born in Beirut and has taught at Harvard University, MIT, University of Hong Kong, Princeton University and Columbia University among others. [Source]

Lebanon Tops The List of Countries By Net Migration Rate

The net migration rate indicates the contribution of migration to the overall level of population change and does not differentiate between economic migrants, refugees and other types of migrants. Of course it’s not surprising to see Lebanon on top given the number of Syrian refugees entering the country everyday.
In terms of other Arab countries, Qatar came second, followed by Jordan in fifth spot, then Bahrain and UAE in 9th and 10th respectively.

Beirut Bar Association Removed Fattouche’s Name From Its List, Pharaon To File A Lawsuit Against Him

According to LBCI, the Beirut Bar Association has removed the name of MP Nicolas Fattoush from the list of lawyers, while Al Jadeed reported that Pierre Michel Pharaon has filed a slander lawsuit against MP Nicolas Fattoush before the public prosecution. Fattouche did ask for it specially about violating the client-lawyer confidentiality during his press conference and by insulting an employee of the Justice Ministry as well.
I think it’s time he apologizes for what he did and admits he’s wrong, but I doubt that’s gonna happen.

Mabrook La Lebnen: Fatdouche No Longer a Lawyer


There are several grievous crimes Fattouche committed. Apart from hitting, or attempting to hit, and insulting a public employee, he’s the evil mastermind behind the parliament’s two extensions. But, he crossed way too many lines for the Beirut Bar Association with his disgusting press conference the other day.
