Do you often dream to travel the world wearing designer clothes and attempting festivals and djing all night ? Well, me too. But, this dream is reality for it-girls Sama and Haya Khadra, also known as SimiHaze (@SimiHaze on instagram).


Sama and Haya were born on March, 31, 1993 in Dubaï, United Arab Emirates. Daughters of Rula Abu Khadra, founder of the chic The Art of Living lifestyle boutique in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, the girls are of Palestinian heritage, but were raised in London. They began generating buzz when they started scouting for their mom’s store by themselves at international fashion weeks in 2008 at the tender age of 15. In 2011, the twins move from Dubaï to LA in order to attend the University of Southern California and study together, both majoring in film production & fine art. The twins graduated in the top two-percent of their class, wearing Chanel combat boots under their gowns, of course.


At the age of 15, they were spotted at fashion week for their matching street style looks. Perhaps the youngest buyers ever, the girls stand out for their buoyant auburn locks and creative style choices, combining daring designer choices (their favorite is Hussein Chalayan) with colorful vintage picks—and then there’s the fact that they’re a mirror image of one another. However, since moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of Southern California last year, the Abu Khadras have learned to appreciate the more laid-back vibe of American collegiate fashion, but their favorite designers remain Chanel, YSL, and Jil Sander, and they refer to their style, collectively, as “more dressed-up.”

As the girls were attending fashions shows in Paris, Milan, New York and more, we can wonder how did they juggle their personal and professional life with their studies.
Haya said for Magazine : « We’ve been doing it since we were 15, so we’re quite used to it. We just take our work wherever we go and do it on the plane, in hotels, or even on shoots, etc. Obviously, some teachers were more understanding and lenient than others, but you just have to make it work. We rarely ever let school stop us from doing real-life work because although school is important, I’ve learned so much from being involved in work outside of school. »

After graduating, the girls started performing as Dj’s and, let me tell you, their first performance was one of a kind. At only 21 years old, they attend Coachella Festival to headline major Dj gigs and first stop was deejaying the Paper magazine party with Kylie Jenner.

Since their 16 years old, Sama and Haya are seen everywhere :

Cartier :

Michael Kors :

Harper Bazaar :

The twins are my biggest fashion inso. Although I cannot wear their style for class, I still try to dress like them when I can (for festivals, events etc..) Their looks include formal suits which they wear in a cool, informal way, with a touch of masculine, goth and punk, without forgetting their love for anything vintage: shirts with prints from the Nineties, sleek, colored sunglasses, and a nice complement of Gucci and Louis Vuitton logos. But they also have a pop side, which makes everything more fun, easy and cool: we fell head over heels for their full pink outfits, bunny-shaped bags, brightly-colored hair, and the coolest Sailor-Moon-inspired outfits one could wear for a Chanel fashion show!


Early Summer Playlist !

Ceci est une playlist, plutôt cool pour l’été et vos nuits de débauches sur la plage, ou tout simplement pour rester dans son lit lorsqu’il fait 43 degrés dehors et que votre seule raison de vivre est le ventilateur à coté de vous. Sinon, cette playlist est à écouter pendant vos road trip (ou vos trajets à Monop’), dans vos piscines gonflables, pour dormir ou se réveiller, pour danser ou passer le balais dans le Air B&B à rendre à 8h au plus tard.
Sur ce, bonne écoute.

This is a playlist, pretty cool for summer and wild nights on the beach, or simply to stay in bed when it’s 43 degrees outside and that your only reason to live is your fan next to you. Otherwise, this playlist is made in order to be listened during road trips (or your journey to Monop’), in your inflatable pool, to sleep or to wake up, to danse or to sweep the whole Air B&B that you have to give back at 8 at the latest.
With this, good listening.

Favorite makeup trends

If you know me, you know I like to go wild with my makeup. I’m always trying to get out of my comfort zone, especially when I’m going out. As a consequence, I’m always trying to get inspiration from celebrities or makeup artists that I like such as Nikki from NikkiTutorials, Chloe Morello, Huda Beauty or even Violette_FR on youtube, which is french makeup artist based in NYC. She is very sophisticated and natural and she inspires me a lot for some every days looks.

Si vous me connaissez, vous savez à quel point j’aime m’aventurer avec le maquillage. J’essaie toujours de sortir de ma zone de comfort, et plus particulièrement quand je sors. Par conséquent, je m’inspire de célébrités ou de maquilleurs professionnels comme Nikki de la chaine NikkiTutorials, Chloe Morello, Huda Beauty ou encore Violette_FR sur youtube, qui est une maquilleuse professionnelle sur New York. Elle est toujours très sophistiquée bien que naturelle et elle m’inspire beaucoup pour des maquillages au quotidien. 

Furthermore, I noticed lately that some makeup looks took over the internet and especially instagram and thus became huge fashion trends. Here are some of my favorite ones; I hope you’ll like some of them and maybe try them out !

En outre, j’ai récemment remarqué que certains styles en termes de maquillages revenaient fréquemment sur instagram et étaient devenus de véritables modes. Voici quelques-uns de mes préférés; j’espère que vous en aimerez certains et que peut-être vous en essayerez ! 







One month ago, the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta, reported an anti-gay purge in Chechnya. According to it, more than a hundred men suspected of being homosexual or bisexual, would be tortured in secret prisons, not far from Grozny, the capital. « Three of them were reported to have died, but according to witnesses, there would be many more, » reports Courrier International.

According to testimonies collected by the Russian daily, detainees would be tortured and forced to reveal the names of other homosexuals around them-which reminds us of the witch-hunts in the USA.
One victim says he was beaten « several times a day », beaten with polypropylene pipes or otherwise targeted by electric shocks, reports L’Obs. According to the investigation, the abuses would be committed by the police and the army, not by militias.

This wave of repression by the authorities was due to the willingness of LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans) militants to organize gay pride in several cities in the North Caucasus. An initiative which caused a great controversy. « It was from this moment that the order was given to undertake a preventive cleaning, » the newspaper said. In early April, the New York Times reported rumors of kidnappings of men aged 16 to 50 a few weeks ago in Chechnya, FranceInfo said.

Members of the Russian LGBT network confirmed these persecutions and thus opened an emergency telephone line to help those who could need to be safe and run-away from the country. Currently, the Russian LGBT Network has 3 main aims:

• to evacuate people, whose lives are still in danger
• to attract as much attention to the cause as possible
• to collect the evidence about the mass homicide of homosexuals in Chechnya

According to R.Kadyrov, president of Chechnya, the existence of these prisons is absolutely impossible since there would be no homosexuals in Chechnya:

« You can not stop or repress people who do not exist in the Republic. Homosexuality does not exist here, » he said.

However, Human Rights Watch said in a statement that « the information published by Novaya Gazeta is consistent with the reports recently received by Human Rights Watch from many sources of trust, including sources in the country. Consistency of cases leave no doubt as to whether these events actually took place « .
Chechen homosexuals who fled to Moscow told AFP that they were beaten and detained « in a non-official prison », and today live the fear in the belly of being identified and tracked by their families

Five diplomatic leaders from European countries, including France and Germany, wrote to their Russian homologue Sergei Lavrov to express their « deep concern » over the fate of homosexuals in Chechnya in a letter dated 28 April.

« We call on the Russian government to use its influence on the regional authorities in Chechnya to immediately stop any persecution, to provide assistance to the victims and to bring the perpetrators to justice, » wrote Sigmar Gabriel, Boris Johnson, The Frenchman Jean-Marc Ayrault, the Dutchman Bert Koenders and the Swede Margot Wallstrom. As a matter of fact, German Chancellor Angela Merkel had already asked Vladimir Putin « to use his influence » so that homosexuals could be respected in Chechnya.

Futhermore, NGOs call on all countries that recognize the rights of homosexuals to offer refuge to the persecuted Chechens. In Canada, LGBT rights groups are calling for emergency visas.
