Who should EVERYONE be following right now? Me! Just kidding haha. Irene Lara and Laurie Ferraro who were on this trip as well. They are such inspiring and creative women, I’m so happy I got to spend time with them!

Favorite season? Spring! I love all the pretty blooms and colors that come with it. Also fashion wise I love this season ‘cause it gets warmer but not too hot, so I can still layer, which is one of my favorite things about fashion.

If you could switch lives with someone for a day who would it be? Hailey Bieber. So I would get to spend time with Justin haha

What you love most about being an Influencer/Blogger? Being able to ‘influence’ someone’s life, thoughts, style. Helping people out in any way possible gives me the greatest satisfaction. Also traveling and meeting amazing inspiring people. Biggest misconception about what you do? That this is not an actual job! I think I work harder than a lot of people I know. I work 7 days a week, from the moment I open my eyes ‘till I go to sleep. I haven’t had an actual vacation with my husband in 2 years. I really hope people start to acknowledge the hard work that goes into a content creator’s job. 80 JULY 2019 | MODELISTE

I feel like this was a milestone in my career and an opportunity to a lot of exciting things in the future. What’s your favorite brand? Right now I’m obsessed with Jacquemus! What are your 3 favorite Summer fashion trends? Bold colors, statement headbands and puff sleeves. If you could sing a duet with anyone, who would it be? I really CAN’T sing!

What’s your favorite country to visit? Peru. I went there last year and it was mind blowing. Can’t wait to go back and explore more of the amazing nature and culture. What are your plans for Summer? Hopefully travel to Europe! I haven’t been in my home country Belgium in two years, and I would love to see my friends and family. And I would love to stop in Italy on the way too haha. Upcoming projects you can tell us about? Lots of things in the pipeline, I’d say stay tuned! Heels or flats? That’s a hard one! Really 50/50 on this, I love sneakers and sandals but I never travel without some pretty heels either. Lipstick or Lipgloss? The combination! I never leave without lipstick, and in the evening I love to top it with lipgloss. Hugs or kisses? Kisses! I’m European, so we like to kiss when we say hi haha. Best way to de-stress? A massage or a Netflix and chill night in


MODELISTE | JULY 2019 81


Best beauty advice you’ve ever received? Jade rolling! I have been doing this every day since I found out about this miracle tool. I keep it in the fridge, it depuffs my skin, smooths and helps to absorb products better. Go-to beauty product at the moment? Can’t live without my Jet Lag mask by Summer Fridays. What are you binge watching these days? The new season of Riverdale What was your favorite part of the Modeliste Mode Around The Globe Getaway to Costa Rica? Spending time with these inspiring women!

In our recent Modeliste tour of sunny Morocco, we experienced some highlights that we are delighted to share with you. 130 JULY 2019 | MODELISTE

MARRAKECH: THE RED CITY

The cultural capital of Morocco, Marrakech is known for its red sandstone Citadel, beautiful gardens, palaces, and mosques. The fortified part of the city, the Medina is a world heritage site with massive Souk (marketplace), and tiny streets with beautiful Riad homes decorated in Moorish design. The local bites and sites are all in the heart of Medina where you can conveniently get lost for as long as you like. Meandering the streets and tiny lane ways of the medina is no different to a game of Hide and Seek. The tantalising fragrances, eye-catching colours, and dynamic sounds of a bustling old town create an interesting atmosphere that causes a time-lapse of sorts. Visiting the Place D'Jeema el Fna, the palaces, prancing around the lush gardens, gallivanting through the Historical Kasbah, or bargain shopping at the Souk, are some of the customary activities that every visitor is recommended to try at least once. The idea of bargaining may seem confronting, however, even the locals welcome bargaining as a healthy way of engaging with their customers. Of course, we don't recommend haggling in shopping malls!


Did someone say food?

An authentic Moroccan cooking class with our travel partners www.rougetravel.com is something we highly recommend. Its a great way to explore the Souk, and grab the food items to cook your first Moroccan meal. Unfortunately, there is no bargaining when buying Vegetables - food has a fixed price! A wonderful two hours spent cooking Tajine and Couscous with a pro Moroccan chef is undoubtedly the best way to experience authentic Moroccan cuisine. After scrumptious lunch, there is an option to return to your hotel for a snooze or join other activities. Well, we weren't going to lose our limited time in Marrakech, so we chose to get down and dirty! The team from Rouge Travel offers transfers from your hotel to Palmeraie for a thrilling afternoon riding Camels and Quad-bikes around the oasis. The day goes by quickly, especially when you're having fun. A popular way to unwind from the day is by visiting the 'Hammam', a traditionally built Moroccan bathhouse.

Located in the heart of Marrakech Medina, Riad Jennah Rouge is a charming Riad tucked away in quiet street. The team of happy local staff await your arrival with a fresh cup of Moroccan Mint Tea to make you feel at home. No, its not sweet! From guided Morocco Desert Tours to independent trips from Marrakech or any other city, Rouge Travel can provide custom Morocco Tours to suit your travel needs. Whether you are on a shoe-string budget or looking to splurge on a luxury holiday, Rouge Travel is a great place to start planning your journey in Morocco.

At Turkish Airlines’ Istanbul airport lounge, premium travelers get exclusive access to a special modern art collection With award-winning dishes prepared by Flying Chefs, the latest in-flight entertainment system, ultra comfortable seating and welcoming Turkish hospitality, Turkish Airlines already makes premium passengers feel special in the skies, like they are members of an elite club. But now, the world-renowned global carrier is adding an artful touch to its exceptional travel experience. Turkish Airlines and Istanbul Modern have partnered to curate a selection of artwork from the Istanbul Museum of Modern Art on display at the Turkish Airlines Business Class Lounge at the newly opened Istanbul. Spanning 1,400 square feet, the exhibition brings together significant examples representing four main dispositions of modern art of Turkey. Thirty-eight works by 16 artists are on display, ranging from early 20th century landscape painting tradition to the abstract paintings of artists looking for a synthesis between eastern and western arts during the 1950s. 136 JULY 2019 | MODELISTE

Compositions that interpret cultural values of Anatolia with a new perspective can also be found among the works that illustrate the daily life presence of figure painting. Istanbul Modern, Turkey's first modern art museum, was founded in 2004 in a former warehouse on the shores of the Bosphorus, to share the country's artistic creativity and culture identity with both local and international audiences. Its rapid success was one of the reasons Newsweek dubbed Istanbul “one of the coolest cities” in the world back in 2005. The museum's popularity continued to surge, and today, displays of cutting-edge contemporary art from Turkish artists make Istanbul Modern a must-visit attraction for the creative class and selfie-snapping tourists alike. But for travelers in transit at Istanbul Airport, Turkish Airlines brings the modern art to them. Passengers can turn their connection time into a culture experience by viewing and enjoying artwork from artists including Seref Akdik, Hakki Anli, Fethi Arda, Ferruh Basaga, Hasan Vecih Bereketoglu, Aliye Berger, Nurullah Berk, Adnan Çoker, Nejad Melih Devrim, Abidin Dino, Nes’e Erdok, Bedri Rahmi Eyüboglu,

Hoca Ali Riza, Hikmet Onat, Selim Turan and Fahrelnissa Zeid. Moreover, the collaboration between Turkish Airlines and Istanbul will allow the collection selections to be refreshed three times a year. Of course, the modern works of Turkish art are a welcome addition to the recentlyopened Istanbul Airport. The world’s largest international hub is the brand-new home for Turkish Airlines and establishes Istanbul as the central location in the world for aviation and travel. Thanks to its strategic location at the crossroads of east and west, the airport has great potential for growth for Turkish Airlines and the global aviation industry and will welcome 200 million passengers per year upon final completion.

Turkish Airlines will operate five passenger lounges at Istanbul Airport for Business Class, Miles & Smiles Elite Plus & Elite, Star Alliance Gold and Corporate Club passengers. There are currently three lounges open – the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge, Miles & Smiles Lounge and Domestic Lounge. The Exclusive Lounge and Arrival Lounge are scheduled to open in summer 2019. With an approximate area of over 60,000 square feet, the Turkish Airlines Business Lounge seats 765 guests and features 13 private suites with showers along with meeting rooms, a library and prayer room. The Istanbul Modern collection is housed here. The Turkish Airlines Miles & Smiles Lounge is also over 60,000 square feet, seats 765 guests, and offers 11 private suites with showers. It provides a space where guests can rest on comfortable couches, savor delicious treats from Turkey along with international cuisine, or enjoy mobile masseur services. Meeting rooms, a library and a prayer room can also be used here. In addition, a console gaming experience, golf simulators and large children’s play area provide entertainment, while a technology center with 3D glasses and virtual reality is currently being planned. 138 JULY 2019 | MODELISTE


The Turkish Airlines Domestic Lounge is accessible through a special entrance gate located outside the terminal so passengers can complete check-in procedures and transfer directly to the aircraft via buses. Lounge amenities include seating areas, Turkish cuisine, a large children’s play area, media wall with multiple television screens and a prayer room. The bar was set high, but Turkish Airlines continues to earn high marks for service excellence at its flagship lounges in the new Istanbul Airport. The modern works of Turkish art can not only be found as part of the Istanbul Modern Collection at the Business Class Lounge, but also in the development, innovation and growth of Turkish Airlines following its move to its new home.

Shay Mitchell has just designed and launched the perfect luggage for traveling. Our ultimate luggage for chic mini-breaks, functional pieces for your next holiday, a favorite gym bag and a wide variety of affordable sleek travel accessories, Beis has everything you need for all of your Summer travels and more. We sat down with Shay to find out more about her latest launch and this is what we found out. Congrats on your Beis Travel line launch! Describe the beginnings of your brand. It happened by default in a way, as a result of my love of traveling! I’ve been an avid traveler for years and always found myself buying new luggage, before what felt like every trip, because the pieces I had either were falling apart or I had found that they hadn’t kept me organized on the last trip. At a certain point I thought “I could just do this better myself,” so I started looking for the right partners and teams to help me along the way. There were a few bumps along the way but for the most part it came together seamlessly, and while it has been a SUPER busy nine months since the launch, we’ve worked like a well-oiled machine and have made some big waves in the travel industry... especially now with the release of the rollers! What does Beis mean? The idea for the brand’s name actually came in the form of one of my favorite old beige bags that I was always using while traveling. We liked the inspiration, but wanted a name that was a little more playful than just the word beige. We started brainstorming and realized that beis actually means beige in Portuguese, and also lends itself to a lot of play on words.

What was the inspiration behind this collection? What makes the craftsmanship of the bags so unique, stylish yet incredibly functional and innovative? I wanted to create a collection of travel accessories and luggage that was chic, functional and affordable so people could feel comfortable and stylish wherever they were headed.

The insides are chocked full of special pockets, zipper compartments and compression flaps to keep everything in place and organized. They’re also expandable so there is ALWAYS room for that extra souvenir purchase. Beyond the obvious, am I a dork if I say the packing cubes?!

Your travel style philosophy? I love toeing a fine line between comfort, style and function while abroad... of course while respecting any social and fashion norms of the place where I am visiting. It’s important to be respectful of other cultures when they open their doors to us. My bags are generally packed with flowing dresses, chic and comfortable separates and a few *special* pieces that I like to save for a special dinner or outing... those are the pieces I created The Garment Bag for! Do you have a favorite piece in the collection? Obviously the Roller is the real show stopper. I took one of the samples on a recent trip to Mexico to make sure it was totally perfect and ready to go for BEIS fans, and can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on them!

Who is the ideal Beis girl? Anyone and everyone...and who said anything about BEIS just being for girls?

Do you see more Creative Directing in your future? Oh absolutely... we are just getting started!

Favorite travel destination? Constantly changing based on recent and future travel plans, but one of my favorite places I traveled to recently was Japan. I had such an amazing experience that I went back with my family a few months later! I also went to the Philippines earlier this year which is where my mom is originally from. That was also a really special experience, especially as I volunteered for a local NPO!

Sneak peek into future Beis collections? You’ll find out soon enough :)

Summer travel plans? Stoked to be going to Italy this summer... this trip has been a long time coming! After that I will be in Mexico for a couple of days, then visiting my family and friends in Canada. Top 3 Travel Bucket List destinations? Croatia, Columbia, Scotland, and Vietnam. What 5 things do you always carry with you in-flight? Hot sauce, face mask, eye mask, earbuds and a great book. What are your travel beauty secrets? Stay hydrated, use tons of SPF and go as natural as possible.

Your

AQUARIUS

HOROSCOPE LEO

You are likely to be more sensitive to what seem like outer world pressures that force you to examine some of your deepest desires and attachments. These include your sexual relationships, your finances and your need for control. Your intuition is heightened to possibly even uncanny levels this month. While the period is a contented one on many levels, you enjoy an increasing feeling of hope, optimism, and spiritual protection. Some of your work is done in seclusion, or you work behind the scenes this month.

VIRGO

Expansion, confidence, and hopefulness are keywords for July. You are feeling good about yourself and confident about your future. This transit brings noticeable improvements to your environment and self-confidence to your personality. Your personality is more obviously expansive, exuberant, and enthusiastic. Once you set your determined little mind to something, there’s just no way you won’t have it. So when you decide who and what you want, you have only to focus your considerable energies on it, and you can rest assured that you’ll reach all those goals.

LIBRA

Life is certainly clearer for you The area of life that is subject to the most changes is your close relationships, or partnerships. Re-evaluating sexual and intimate expression could figure. Your independent spirit pushes up and out, and you enjoy plenty of scope for doing your own thing. Others take special interest in you. Enhancing your appearance in some manner serves to increase your confidence even further. Career and finances are especially strong. You navigate your way successfully through the month by avoiding unwanted financial deals.

SCORPIO

This is a time when you are reclaiming your personal power. The things or even people that have held you back from being who you really are tend to be left behind. Superficial attitudes or manners of selfexpression no longer do it for you. The key to harnessing your energy is to identify and find pleasure in the simple things that make you happy. Still, there will be times when you feel bogged down by learning, projects, paperwork, and errands. You need to find time for indulging in hobbies and other pleasurable activities.

CANCER You will eliminate some deep-seated habits and attachments that have been keeping you back from feeling emotionally free. You would emerge healthier and stronger. Positive connections made now suggest that you are likely to discover resources that you never knew you had. Help seems to be magically there when you need it, and your own awesome strength and faith is always there to draw upon. For most, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into focus

SAGITTARIUS

You are working on perfecting the art of intimate bonding with another person on a deep level. You are also getting a grip on finances, especially those that you share with or that come from others. Stirring in you is the desire to make radical changes to the manner in which you go after you want in life..You might need to guard against becoming too full of yourself or overly selfinterested, however. There is also a risk of overindulgence and other forms of extreme behavior.

CAPRICORN

You are noticed and recognized for your natural talents on the job, and you could be busy re-investing money into your career. Some of you will be making money from esoteric endeavors or through work behind the scenes. Learning and education are areas of your life that undergo the most change. You have an altogether different perspective on life this month, and are not inclined much to sweat the small stuff. This month gives you a push towards a stronger identity as well as a sense of purposefulness through close partnership.

You will think or feel differently about security, financial holdings or what you want in life. All these things will unfold slowly. The stars show a loss of interest in a project or group. Dealings with one group may take your attention from another. You may return to the company of past contacts or resume a past activity. Meditation and retreats may be particularly beneficial to you now, acting to regenerate and invigorate you. As the month progresses, your life gets livelier and this allows you to enjoy yourself.

PISCES

This month helps you to focus on your goals. This transit is a stabilizing one–others know they can rely on you, and you on them. Your vision is all the more realistic now, but pleasingly so. You work steadily and determinedly towards your goals. You are working hard, taking on your fair share of duties and responsibilities, and reaping some of the rewards of your hard work. You no longer view your place in the world, your career, and your reputation with rosecolored glasses.

ARIES

There is certainly room for imagination and inspiration in your career this month and what happens as the month begins will also have a pay-off on the home front. You are also inclined to take a few risks with your finances, or unusual ways of making money could be in place during this cycle. Now is the time to nurture your latent inventive or progressive, future-oriented talents. You may, for example, receive a cosmic push towards expressing yourself more creatively and experience an increased drive to take charge of your life.

TAURUS

This is a time to go after your dreams, for certain, but do your best to avoid alienating people or things that you normally hold dear to your heart. Dissatisfaction and frustrations getting what you want, especially with regard to relationships with others and with your resources, often characterize the first half of the month. You may discover that previous methods of controlling your environment and the people in your life simply are not effective any more. Increased responsibilities in general and in your career figure, and are actually important for your development

CANCER

You are increasingly less focused on your own self-centered needs, more universal in your concerns, and more open to the intangible realms of inspiration and beauty. Get in touch with what feels most comfortable for you and the intimacy level in your relationship will step up a notch. This month should help you make watertight plans for your mind, body and spirit in a way which serves all of them, at the same time. Reduce the emotional temperature when making health decisions. Functional health needs care. Keep a tab on your diet.
