Abdel Halim Hafez on Google

June 21st is Abdelhalim's birthday, and Google surely deserves a thumbs up for today's doodle. Thanks to my friend who told me about it, it seems there are many perks to not living in the states ;)

Tate Modern - 2011 summer exhibitions

I was on vacation in London for the past two weeks (finally a decent break) and I really enjoyed Tate's current exhibitions. I highly recommend it if you are in London or planning to go soon. Taryn Simon's work was phenomenal, as was Hashem Almadani's studio archive.

Review: Elemis Lip Revive

Elemis Lip Revive is a petroleum-free lip balm formulated to nourish, repair and protect lips, keeping them soft and in perfect condition. The active base, rich in vitamins and natural plant collagen, contains White Bees Wax, Mediterranean Olive Oil Wax and Cocoa Butter. Healing Calendula is combined with Japanese Wild Mint and Peppermint to cool and soothe.

I have never actually bought this, having constantly gotten free samples from British Airways, but I am truly living on it! Perfect to use all year round really. It is very moisturizing, but not at all greasy or heavy. I love the peppermint smell to it.

Get it here.

Summer movies I want to watch

Since I'm going back to the states soon, I didn't watch Pirates of the Caribbean here in Kuwait. I heard it was overly censored, and big chunks of the movie was missing. There are 8 movies I want to watch this summer, in no particular order. Any recommendations?
