Obsessed: Beyoncé's On The Run Wardrobe

Fishnets, leather, sequins, denim and Versace. That pretty much sums up Beyoncé's wardrobe for the most anticipated On The Run tour. America's royal couple Jay Z and Beyoncé kicked off their tour with a bang, belting out an impressive 42-song set and taking performance and sex appeal to a whole new level. 

Bey's on-stage outfits are always a showstopper and how she will top her own on-stage ensembles is a legit mystery, especially after she wowed us with her grandiose The Mrs. Carter Show wardrobe, which was filled with a variety of ingenious onesies - yet she's even outdone her own sexiest leotard record with a butt-framing leotard, proving her on-stage sovereignty yet again. 

I've always been vocal of how I adore Beyoncé - from her music to her style to her unwavering fierceness. Long Live Queen Bey.

OUTFIT: Many Irons in the Fire

I've been staring at my computer for god knows how long because I really want to write something substantial. Or something that makes sense, at least. But I can't. All I want to do is obsess over the stuff I'm currently obsessed with. Like the recent Haute Couture shows and Bey & Jay's On The Run tour and working on my fitness. And Jennifer Lawrence. And Boyce Avenue.

Ralph Lauren's Giant Ricky Bag Comes to Doha, Qatar

THE RICKY WORLD TOUR CONTINUES. Ralph Lauren's iconic Ricky XXL continues its journey around the world from New York, Tokyo, Paris, London and now the Middle East. Its arrival in Doha, Qatar was celebrated with a Wednesday night soirée at the Ralph Lauren store in the VIP area of Villaggio Mall, Doha.

Created in 2005 as a tribute to his wife, Ralph Lauren's famous Ricky bag is one of the American fashion house's most iconic pieces. The success of the emblematic accessory is so massive that they decided to celebrate it in an equally massive way. Ralph Lauren debuted the Ricky World Tour last September, installing a giant version of the Ricky bag in several of the world's biggest cities. Its first stop was Saks Fifth Avenue in New York City and in February of this year, it traveled all the way to Tokyo, Paris and London before it landed its final stop in Miami. The gigantic clone resumes its tour in the Middle East with Kuwait as its first Arabian stop and now in Qatar.

Playing Dress Up at Per Lei Couture

PLAYING DRESS UP BEGINS AT FIVE AND NEVER TRULY ENDS. That's Kate Spade quoting the reality. I think it's safe to say that vast majority of the double-X-chromosomed population couldn't agree more with this. In my case, I started even younger than five. At the very tender age of three, I was already fooling around with my mom's lipsticks and blushes, and by five, I was already adept at creating flower crowns, which I always loved to wear with my "fairy dress." Beneath all the tulle dresses and flower crowns was a real passion growing; my penchant for playing dress up has become perpetual.
And then there's Per Lei Couture. Home of luxury brands both big and small. Have you ever walked into a boutique and just felt so ecstatic? I was invited into the boutique to exclusively see what they have in store and, uhm, to play dress up. The moment I stepped inside, I was like a kid in a candy store. Everything's so beautiful, I didn't know what to pick. Per Lei Couture is a wonderland. It's a fashion lover's paradise.

Dining Out: Paul's French Ramadan Menu

I swear, I could become a food blogger anytime. 
Anyway. To all my Muslim readers (and to non-Muslims who also celebrate this annual observance), Ramadan Kareem! Having lived in a Muslim country for nearly 5 years now, I should know that Ramadan is  one of the most important Islamic occasions: a blessed time to rejoice and celebrate charity, cleansing and change. Celebrate Ramadan with PAUL as they offer a hearty four-course meal that's specially designed for Iftar! And what better way to practice a healthy fast than a hearty sumptuous meal, right?

OUTFIT: Halfway Point

I can't believe 2014 is almost halfway over. It's already past mid-June and summer has officially started. While for the rest of the world, summer is the season to hit the beach and go on various adventures, for us here in the Middle East it's the season to put our air conditioning working at its full blast and unleash our inner couch potato. The temperature here in Doha has soared to over a hundred degrees Fahrenheit and being outdoors is more distressing than fun.
