Simply the Best: The 7th Annual VIVA Beauty Awards Winners

VIVABeautyAwards

We love makeup! Personally I get to experiment loads of beauty products all the time. Sometimes it gets overwhelming to judge the result of a certain product, and the whole thing gets mixed together with other products, let it be makeup or skin care, doesn’t it? Well, a little help every now and then is nothing but a bonus. That’s why I look for the VIVA Beauty Awards every year. Mostly to know if i’m missing on any good products some how, or just to know if my beauty routine is going on the right track.

H&M Conscious Exclusive Collection

I usually highly anticipate H&M’s designer collaborations, but this year, the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection is doing the job, keeping everyone around the world on their tip toes! Inspired by flamenco and bohemia, featuring embellishments, feminine silhouette and contrasting masculine details. Each piece is incredibly feminine, yet very powerful. I’m absolutely obsessed! The eco-fashion line is the brainchild of the Swedish retailer and eco-design think tank Ever Manifesto. The collection will hit stores on April 10, and will be available in 150 stores worldwide, including both H&M stores at the avenues. It will include items made of organic leather and silk, along with other sustainable materials. Make sure to drop by and get your hands on your favorite pieces. I know I will!

@BecarreLS Annual Exhibition Sneak Peek

Today at 6:00PM, Becarre will be launching their Annual Exhibition that will be going on till Thursday. I got the chance to preview the collection 2 days ago, and the word is , a new level of class!

I’ve been a fan on their work since I’ve heard about them, around 2 years ago. I used to work in the same building, and whenever It got too much at my office to handle I used to go there and just enjoy looking at the art behind the exquisite pieces.

This collection was no different; delicate, flawless pieces, that you would spot anywhere and know the designer behind them in a blink of an eye.

I’m in love with the tribal yet cultural feel of the pieces. The mix of design is absolutely brilliant!

The outdoor area was being prepared for the opening today; breathtaking set up!

The yummies..

This cake by Cake Story tasted SO good! Get more information on it here.

The exhibition will continue for 4 days till March 29th – 9:00AM to 2:00PM and 5:00PM to 10:00PM. Don’t miss out!

Becarre is located in Old Salmiya, Salem Al Mubarak St, Northern Salmiya Building, Tel +965 25757725. For more details, visit their Facebook Event Page, or follow them on Twitter and Instagram @BecarreLS.
