Walk on the Marina

20130921_093617 - Copy

I just love Beirut on a cloudy day!  The colors are more vivid, the air is fresh and the view can be seen for miles.   For all of you who like to appreciate a good view, I suggest you try a walk on the boardwalk outside of Marina Dbayeh.  Just take the bridge before ABC Dbayeh and park your car anywhere on the boardwalk.


You get the view of the sea, the mountains and beautiful Beirut from a distance.  You can watch the Marina Waterfront Complex come to life. Plus it’s free!


The Weekly Buzz: Getting Healthy

I’ve decided to make this Weekly buzz about getting healthy.  It can take a lot of will power to jump on the healthy band wagon and power through life without too  many temptations.  Food, smoke, drugs, laziness, anger, junk food, etc.  But sometimes tweaking a few things in your routine can booster enough motivation to make healthier options a lifestyle.  Just before you think this Weekly Buzz doesn’t apply to you; take the Real Age Test and determine what your real age is based on hereditary, past and present factors.  When you rank in at 5 years older than your actual age, LIKE I DID, you’ll be ready and willing to get healthy.

Step 1:   Real Age Test

Step 2:   Figure out the areas you need to improve.  Sign up for the great suggestions offered by Real Age or search for your own.  You can start with some of the articles collected below.

FITFLOPS are now in Beirut

I recently got my hands on a pair of Fitflops and haven’t been able to take them off since.  Having heard all about them on the internet, in magazines and of course through the celebrity grapevine of what’s new and hot, I was so happy to hear that they were launched in March in Beirut and now available in ABC Dbayeh and Achrafieh. 

In my quest for body perfection, “the workout while you walk” slogan was enough of a punch line for me to take the bait with a Microwobbleboard technology that promotes relief of joint stress and activation of leg muscles.   If you want specifics, check out the picture above. 

With so many styles to choose from such as Rebel, Rockstar, Pietra, Walkstar, Oasis Suede and a special Snakeskin Limited Edition, there is a fitflop for everyone.  I personally chose the Pietra because it fits best with my wardrobe and it’s good I did because I can’t seem to take them off now.  Yes, primarily I was in it for the workout but who cares about a workout with comfort like this.  I can honestly say that this is the first time I have been able to walk more than 2 to 3 hours straight without even feeling the slightest bit of pain in my feet and legs.  In addition, this might just be psychological, but I could swear my butt is higher than it was when I started wearing my Fitflops.

The retail value ranges from $90 to $100 at ABC Stores but is definitly worth the investment.  For more information about the benefits and styles of FitFlop, visit their website on or join the FitFlop Lebanon Facebook Group.
