The Beazbee is a hidden gem in the heart of Hamra and specifically in Gefinor Center.
I always wanted to check out the place, especially after seeing the tasty pictures all over Instagram but it wasn’t happening, until I finally made it last Saturday!
Located on the first floor, I was charmed by the interior. Modern, chic furniture, with very really relaxing colors and I fell in the Love with the teapot <3
First, I had the Beazbee Salad, it’s anything but ordinary, it’s pure freshness in a bowl.
It’s a cup full of greens, avocados, endives, mushrooms, berries, pine nuts and poppy seeds.
Then I had the Grilled Tenderloin
On a bed of beetroot, the black angus beef filet was lying surrounded by steamed baby potatoes, zucchini, carrots and asperger.
The creamy green pepper sauce is mouthwatering and the cooking was just perfect!
And to top the goodness, each Saturday when you eat there, you will be contributing to raise money to buy a marathon racing chair to an incredible athlete Sumi and help her fulfill her dream of racing in the Beirut Marathon.
Shapewear are usually worn under your clothes to shape your body, but sometimes it could be annoying. They kinda show under your tight dress or it gets too tight you can’t seem to breathe…
A while ago, I got the chance to discover the shapewear brand Svelte, that solved this problem. They created shapewear clothing!
They have a form-fitting collection of jeans, leggings, t-shirts, top tanks and shorts to keep you looking and feeling your very best.
The ready to wear line integrates to your body shape with a 4 way stretch spandex panel. All Svelte shapewear products are equipped with a signature, built-in waist panel to accentuate your silhouette .
As with any new activity, there is some level of danger. The same would be true with rock climbing, cycling, running, or even yoga. But it’s very simple to drastically reduce your risk of injury with strength training, since a professional program would balance out your body for optimal strength and power, thereby decreasing your risk of injury in other activities.
What you need to do is:
– Choose a program that’s appropriate for your ability level
– Prepare your body to work out
– Understand correct form
Lifting Heavy Makes Women Bulky
A lot of girls have this mind, that if they lift some weights they’ll become bulky like men.
Let’s set one thing straight, women don’t produce enough testosterone to add significant amounts of muscle mass quickly or easily. Muscle mass takes years and years of hard work to build and many female bodybuilders choose to enhance themselves chemically because they have such a hard time gaining muscle mass.
If you lift weights and eat healthy foods, your muscles will get stronger and denser; you will burn the fat on top of your muscle and you will get that “toned” look that you’re after.
Cardio Burns More Fat
Cardiovascular training absolutely has its place, but it’s not the only path towards fitness.
Believe it or not, strength training will produce a more efficient weight loss effect than an equal amount of cardio.
When you strength train, your muscles are broken down and then rebuilt over the next 24-48 hours. While your body is rebuilding those muscles, it’s recruiting more calories and energy to make the process happen.
What this means is that your metabolism operates at a faster level even while you’re sitting on the couch after a workout.
You Can Sport Reduce Fat
Your body cannot spot reduce fat in specific locations. If you have flabby arms or a big stomach, doing thousands of bicep curls and thousands of crunches won’t help.
Your body is genetically predisposed to storing fat in certain locations in a certain order. When you start to lose weight, your body will lose the fat you currently have in a certain order as well.
No amount of targeted exercise will change how that fat disappears. When you reduce your body fat levels, your body will choose where it wants to lose fat from first.
So no, you can’t technically spot-reduce, but you can use strength training combined with sound nutrition and intelligent cardio to get the lean, toned body you desire!
Now that the myths are debunked, it’s time to consider weight lifting!

March is the month to reflect on the achievements of women and empower each other.
In my post today, I’ll be introducing to you Cristel Taoutel behind KiKi that handles Communication, Media and PR.
1- Can you tell us about your background and why you decided to have your own agency
Since my graduation from Saint Joseph University in Business and Management, I started working in the PR field. I worked with luxury products like Dupont, Delsey, Kipling , Lacoste, Lancel, Longchamp and FMCG products ( While working with Hodal Group) and I worked in the PR Services like five stars hotels and restaurants ( while working in a PR agency) and now I’m working in an Architecture and Consultancy office as Business Development and PR.
I find the public relations field as an extremely attractive profession as it so diverse, dynamic and every day you work on a different thing, which is what I like.
Of course in this field you should be able to work under pressure and multitask, but with the passion to take up new challenges, good listening abilities and a desire to help people, one will adapt and excel in his job.
2- How did you find yourself in the Lebanese market ? And were there any difficulties with the clients?
First of all I want to thank all the opportunities I had in my career and all the companies I worked with, they gave me the chance and the opportunity to grow in this field, they saw my skills and believed in me.
Plus I want to mention here, that I am from a Syrian Origin, my accent is different, but the people here are very friendly and never faced any problem because of it. This is my identity and I’m proud with it.
3- What differentiates you from the other agencies?
What differentiates me from others, is that I can work with all kind of budgets.
I help my clients to promote their products and services in an efficient way.
When I started blogging, Le Blog De Chanty was mainly focusing on beauty, fashion and lifestyle.
But after I realized my passion for Fitness, my content started diverting more into health, fitness, clean eating, healthy living…
Thus the logo needed an update. The colors are still my favorite but the stylish lady with the huge hat isn’t represented a lot in my posts.
I needed a new logo to reflect my current style that is a combination of simplicity and energy.
Grey is a classic, elegant and solid color, reflecting maturity and professionalism. It is helpful for calming and re-setting the emotions.
Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.
Yellow produces a warming effect, stimulates mental activity and generates muscle energy. it also indicates honor and loyalty.
I liked the combination of letter mark and hand written. It’s simple and energetic at the same time.
Thank you Triangle Mena for understanding my needs and reflecting them in this inspiring logo.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is not really easy, it needs effort and commitment.
You start preparing your own food to keep track of what you’re eating during the day. You keep healthy snacks with you all the time, to make sure you won’t jump to the supermarket and hoover all the chocolate you see.
And yeah snacks options will get minimal; few kinds of fruits, nuts and crackers will be in your list.
I discovered the Quest Protein Bar when I started lifting weights and needed a protein source after my workout.
They have one of the best nutritional profiles of any protein bar on the market, with 20-21g of protein, plenty of fiber without a lot of unnecessary ingredients or extra carbs. All Quest Bars are gluten and soy free, and contain no added sugar.
Most importantly they taste great, now I keep a bar in all my bags and my favorite flavor is Brownies.
For the boring days at home, watching TV and don’t want to ruin your healthy track, the Quest Protein Chips will come handy.
Quest Protein Chips revolutionized snack food, offering a delicious, savory way to #CrunchClean.
With 21 grams of high-quality protein per bag, every bold, mouth-watering flavor has only 5g total carbs and zero junk ingredients. You can eat the whole bag for only 130 calories. My favorite flavor is BBQ!

The holidays are over, but the extras kilos from all the feasts and extra alcohol are lying around your waist.
You’re searching for a push to help you get out of the cycle of dependence on saturated fats, refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and excess caffeine and alcohol.
One of the ways that can help you get back on track and change your eating habits is to have a detoxing program with Neo Kor organic juices.
What makes Neo Kor detoxing program different is that they don’t require cutting on food, because that is not a healthy thing to do.
With Neo Kordetoxing programs, you need to focus on healthy eating and have your juice one hour before your meals (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner).
Neo Kor created different innovative detoxing programs to help you in your journey depending on your needs; Smooth Skin, Hydration, Fat Burn, Anti Aging, Energy Booster, Strong Immunity
Order Neo Kor detoxing juices on the following number 03/909215 to boost your energy, increase your metabolism while cleansing your body!
And what’s important to keep in mind, is that when your detox program ends, you can’t get back to binge eating. You have to keep on eating healthy, because that is the lifestyle that you want to be living!
Caution: Detoxing is not for everyone, check if it suits your health condition before starting any plan!
