Staying active | Adidas x Stellasport

Adidas x Stellasport Tie-dye jacket, shorts, color-blocked backpack and shoes.

To be honest, when it comes to staying active, I find it very hard to stay on track for a long time. Not because
 I don't enjoy doing sports, but because I get distracted so easily by other things, that gym becomes less of a
 priority. I do feel bad about it when it happens, especially that after hitting 30, staying active is a must in order
 to be able to eat as much as I used to eat in my 20s. LOL! Yes, I think I made it pretty clear that I loveee food.

Now if you remember very well, almost two years ago I shared with you this little trick that I do when I wanna force myself to get back on the right track of being active, in this post here. I know that some of you might find it weird
 or funny, but I swear it works like a charm. Imagine yourself when you buy an amazing party dress and immediately wanna go dancing, or when you buy the hottest swimsuit and start calling your friends to plan a beach day, it's exactly like that. I've been obsessing about Adidas x Stellasport SS16 collection, since the first few images started rolling on the web, and been eagerly waiting to put my hands on my favourite pieces. I mean this 80's inspired tie-dye jacket is everything! And that colour pop backpack is literally my new #BFF, she comes out with me everywhere, from the gym to the pool, to long weekends in Sour, and when she's home, she's sitting in my living room perfectly fitting with all my colourful furniture.

For this editorial, I chose to collaborate with Rudolf Azzi, a young, rising and inspiring photographer. I met Rudolf a few years back working on a project, and fell in love with his strong passion for photography and film. We've been meaning to collaborate on a few shoots for quite some time, but unfortunately, our schedules did not meet until last month. So here it is finally our first editorial featuring my favourite sports brand, I'm personally in loveee with the vibe of the photos and the way Rudolf retouched them and made me look kind of surreal. I really hope you enjoyed this first post, and I look forward to hearing back your feedback.

BFF x Raghunter | My BDW looks

You can see more photos now at Raghunter.

As much as I love wearing colors, I find myself tending to go to monochromatic outfits lately. It's nothing 
new, as I always go through different phases, but I'm currently really enjoying this one in particular. I've 
been on a shopping rehab recently, and believe it or not I haven't bought a single item for 3 months now.
 Mainly because I'm trying to save up, but mostly because I've found myself buying so many unnecessary
 things over past year, and when you hit 30 you come to realize that it should be quality over quantity. 
Working in the fashion industry, it hasn't been easy to avoid all the temptation, so I'm really happy that I
 came so far. I also found that working with a limited wardrobe gave me a boost of creativity, and re-look 
at my wardrobe from a different perspective. Instead of saying " I have nothing to wear " and go shopping, 
I try a new outfit combination that I never tried before. Like this  Zara dress worn under my London Boy
 t-shirt, the old H&M feather hat that I found hiding in the back of my closet, or my mom's gorgeous vintage 
scarf that was lost under a pile of unwanted clothes. So here are my three looks from the days that I attended 
BDW, I hope that I inspired you in any way to go get your creativity out and think out of the usual, and
 not be afraid to create your own style instead of just following trends and looking like everyone out there.

Now to come to the most exciting part ; this year Raghunter was the Exclusive Street Style Partner for
 Beirut Design Week, and they approached me for a special feature on how I would capture street style
 at the events I attended. To be honest this was the first time that I attempt in capturing street style, but 
I enjoyed every minute of it. I'm really proud of the outcome of this collaboration, and absolutely 
loved shooting every single person wether it was my super cool stylish friends or the beautiful 
strangers that I was lucky to meet. You can now check the full feature on Raghunter, I really 
hope that you guys like it as much as we do, and I cannot wait to hear your feedback!
