A lot of people have been asking me about Forever 21 and when it is set to open at City Centre Beirut. Well unfortunately it won’t be opening before mid January 2015 as I was told. I tried to ask about the Cheese Cake Factory since it interests me more than a retail shop but there’s not a set date yet.

Michael Kors Opens Its First Store In Beirut

I’ve seen the brand in malls like ABC but this is the first standalone store in the country. Michael Kors is now open on Fakhry Bey Street in the Beirut Souks area.

I checked the official Michael Kors website and the Beirut store is still not added.

American fashion brand Michael Kors hosted a party Tuesday night for the opening of its first store in Lebanon. Dozens of women wandered through the shop at the opening event, ogling walls of the brand’s popular solid-color handbags – or carrying their own – and eyeing cases of watches and eyewear.

As surprising as it may seem, Rolex is opening a new boutique in the old souk of Jounieh. The new boutique is a old renovated house and is located in the old souks of Jounieh right before the resort Amwaj. I have to say I never expected Rolex to open in Jounieh. I bet the monthly rent they are paying there is less expensive than a Rolex watch haha!

Rolex has a branch also in Beirut on Weygand street.

Love Translator App by The Mukhi Sisters

It’s no secret that men and women don’t always get each other. That’s why the Mukhi sisters have come up with a fun Valentine app that translates what women really mean. Men just type in what women are telling them and the app translates the sentence to “English”. In case Love Translator doesn’t return an answer, you could always suggest one with the help of your wife/fiancee/gf or just “Break the language barrier” and get a jewelry suggestion. I think that’s a pretty cool idea and I would love to see a compilation of the best suggested answers after a while.

Speaking of jewelry, I never understood why women or anyone for that sake love getting jewelry so much. Personally speaking, that’s like the worst gift I could get from anyone.

Born to an Indian father and a Lebanese mother, the Mukhi Sisters bring you the best of both worlds in contemporary jewelry pieces. Passion for jewelry was innate and inherited by their parents who have been renowned jewelers for years. Each their own design and their own personal touch, the Mukhi Sisters line of jewelry is sure to satisfy everyone’s tastes.

The app is available only on the iTunes Store. [Download]
