Bridesmaidzilla in Beirut

SliceBridesmaids
My sister is getting married in a month! I’m super excited but in a frenzy to become to the perfect Maid of Honor. That translates into losing about 5 kilos (thanks to all the delicious sausages and pretzels on my trip to Germany last week), finding the perfect dress, planning an unforgettable bachelorette party, choosing the perfect wedding gift for my baby sister and finding a reasonable explanation of why I’m still not married for the 200 guests who I’m sure will be asking (lol)!

I’ll be keeping you up to date with my progress and look forward to all the help I can get from all of you 🙂

Wish me Luck!!

Hello Beirut!

keep-calm-and-blog-on-104

It’s been a while!  I took some time off from the blogosphere and the Beirutosphere due to my hectic schedule in the last year.  But oh how I miss it.  It’s amazing how much can change in a year – on a technological and social level!  Social media has a whole new dimension and so does Social Lebanon.  New restaurants, activities, areas of action and shopping centers.  Got myself a new Canon and I’m ready to dive back in.

I’ll be updating the blog, adding some new features and starting the new Shop Talk Facebook page.  As always, I welcome all your thoughts, ideas and suggestions.

Hope you’re all having a great year!

Time to Unwind!

With summer days giving way to winter nights, its time to unwind! The best way I know how to unwind is invest in a good pampering treatment to destress, energize and ultimately find a way to reverse all the mistakes made during the summer (ie. sun, late nights, alcohol, great fattening food and travel).

Some of the finest spas in Beirut have opened their doors to Shop Talk Beirut to experience some of the best treatments on offer.  Of course, the market for beauty & relaxation in Lebanon is large and has an amazing variety in terms of location, price and services but the experiences in the next few posts are a great place to start.   

If spas aren’t your cup of tea, there are also many other ways to unwind such as new restaurants, activities, pubs and excellent travel offers.

Enjoy!
