LONDON – A mixed metropolitan city

The first trip of 2018 was to the capital of United Kingdom, London. A must visit city in Europe, and definitely a vibrant place where you get to experience a lot of culture and history. I planned this trip with one of my best friends, and we nearly gave up on it, until one day we find these super cheap tickets, so of course we seize the opportunity.
Thank you Ryanair.

First expression was the airport when we landed, London has over 4 airports!! All maximum an hours drive from the city. The airport we arrived in was super small, but it was still full of life at 2 AM. Copenhagen Airport is dead 2 AM in the morning, so I’m quite surprised at the difference. That’s the difference between a capital city in a small country and then a metropolitan city!

Oxford Street; if you didn’t know what it was, what would you think? I really thought it would be some sort of monument, a museum or just some kind of link to Oxford University/city. However I was pleasantly surprised with a little hint of disappointment. It turned out to be a very famous street with fancy shopping malls and boutiques on each side. We were lucky the christmas decorations were still gracing the streets. Enjoying all these lights and impressions, I started feeling a little stupid of what I thought it would be. Unfortunately Oxford Street is also the place where my phone got stolen, so it’s regrettable to come home and find out all the pictures from that day is gone, however I didn’t let it ruin my trip (it’s just an excuse to get a new phone).

It was only for a few days, but we managed to see a lot. Westminster, Westminster Abby, Big Ben, Tower Bridge, The National Gallery at Trafalgar Square, Borough Market and walking down the Themsen. However it wasn’t enough time to fully be satisfied with London, It never is. How long would that even take? London is definitely a place I’ll visit again.

 

Until next time may peace be with you

Meet Glambylamees

I haven’t been blogging for long, so I feel incredibly honored to present you, my very first collaboration with a talented blogger. I present to you; Glambylamees.
Glambylamees runs a fashion/make-up blog, and I’m really excited about it since it’s also my interest . One day she asks me if I would be interested in photographing her for her next blog posts, as nervous and excited I was, I said yes. I wasn’t sure if my amateur skills would be enough for a real photoshoot. However I wanted to challenge myself, and see how far I could go.

The day came, and I was really nervous about it, I was really studying up on it as it was an exam. Surprisingly, the second I met Lamees I felt at ease and really started to enjoy it. She’s an easygoing person, very openminded and full of ideas. I asked if she would be interested in a short interview for my blog, guess what, she said yes! image1

  • Tell me  about yourself. Where are you from: My name is Lamees KG, I am 28 years old from Lebanon, moved to Denmark recently. 
  • Where do you live: I live between Copenhagen and Beirut, Lebanon. 
  • Study: I have a bachelor degree in Business, Finance.
  • What are your interests: I have a huge interest in makeup and in modest fashion.
  • What do you do in your mean time: Reading, coloring  and of course shopping.
  •  Family: My parents and husband. 
  • What is your blog about? My blog is about modest fashion and beauty.
  • Why did you want to start blogging, and how did you start? After I resigned from my job in Lebanon and moved to live in Denmark, I thought that it was the right time to start doing what  I was always passionate about. I discovered my passion for makeup when I started  watching makeup tutorials on a daily basis around 5 years ago, so I began to apply what I learned on my self , and on some friends and family members. When it comes to fashion, I have always been interested to make myself look more fashionable while dressing modestly; and I always hoped to help all hijabi girls to look better and feel more confident about themselves. So I decided to start my blog in order to be able to help girls to be their own stylists and their own makeup artists.
  • Do you have an advice for my readers: My advice for them is to follow their dreams and to stick to what they are passionate about, because by doing so they can enjoy life!

Thank you for the opportunity to meet you and get to know you Lamees!

My top 10 Photographs

My top 10 favorite photographs taken by me. As cliché as that may sound, I thought it would be a good idea, to introduce the style of pictures I take. Of course in the future it may change, as this is a learning process for me, however it would be nice to showcase it. For that I’ve chosen 10 pictures, to show you.

10. Hammamat, Tunisa. Views from high places does something to me.

9. Malmö, Sweden. The scenery took me by surprise.

4. Versailles, France. This place is so magical to me, that if I could, I would
have chosen all the pictures I took in Versaille in my top 10.
I think an idea is building up in my mind…

1. Montmartre, France. Can we all just agree that everything in Paris is
marvellous, so of course my favorite pictures of all, are the ones from there.
It is definitely not the last time I’ll be in Paris.
