Moss by Day

This photo of Kate Moss by late photographer Corinne Day is one of my favorite photos of all time. I will always prefer this waif-like, young yet tired type of beauty to the bouncy, shiny, smiley VS angels. The latter is just uninteresting.

BMAF = Beirut's Music and Arts Festival. I didn't manage to take any pictures of the actual festival but this is us leaving the festival. I made my boyfriend leave cause I was craving a coconut crepe, something I hadn't had since 2008.

Favorite moment of the evening was when a cover band played a Muse song that gave me memory flashes from a Paris night in Baron when me and CB drank champagne in a parked car because we needed to calm down from the action inside...

Mario Testino

I have a hate-love relationship with Testino's photography. Sometimes he's behind the most amazing pictures, and at other times I feel like I could have taken a better photo with my blackberry camera (see latest cover of Vanity Fair). This photo from the latest issue of Vogue Brazil kind of summarizes it: you have all the components to make a great photo but somehow Testino finds a way to screw it up...

Dog park

Tyson and Duke <3 reunited at last! And the best part is that a man from BETA passed by and informed us that there is a dog show coming up next week-end. Who's going to be best in show? Who's going to be best in show? Well... that will depend on Tyson's mood for the day, I'm not getting my hopes up, but he's the best in my show at least and that counts for something.

Sunny day

One more paper done for my visa extension (this one had kittens in his office), it's sunny outside but not sticky warm, the only important thing on the agenda just got post-poned - today is looking good.

I got my Visa and my v....

Wait... I don't. Tomorrow the journey of renewing my Visa continues. Will the smooth flow of today's sleeping notaries (assistants were also face-on-keyboard sleeping) who have you in and out of their office in five minutes continue? Or will the heroine of this story be forced to leave the country for a day? Mmm, the plot thickens....
