Live, Laugh, Learn; Style (Part II)

In my last post I laid out a brief introduction of the fashion experience in Germany. Dating a German-Spaniard who is fond of reds and greens and blues but can also rock black successfully, I have to admit I got the better end of the deal; a German with all the German merits who pays attention to style. While having a conversation about the very … Continue reading Live, Laugh, Learn; Style (Part II)

And although all of those factors were pretty amazing, I had higher … Continue reading Road Trip Diaries: Venice; That Indigo Floating Land…

Sex and the City; a Modern Day Twist to Pride and Prejudice

I must admit, it wasn’t my first time attempting at watching the series. I had caught glimpses of Carrie’s monologues while back in Iran at my parents’ place where they own a TV set up to satellite that still broadcasts episodes of Friends. More than once had I heard her rants on what relationships, as I was preparing a salad or marinating my fried with mayo … Continue reading Sex and the City; a Modern Day Twist to Pride and Prejudice
