FANS AWARD at Sweet Tales

Hello Dolls and Gents !
Hoping you had a fab weekend and a nice start this morning !
Because this is a Tuesday (tuesdays are my mondays for some reason ) and a cloudy one too, This post comes to brighten it up and add some warmth and sweetness to a bitter week to come !

Fans Awards is what this post is about, you all know Amira by now, the beautiful tunisian youtuber (1st too) who makes makeup tutorials (here ) and the creator of the one and only . if you are following her on twitter and FB  you would know that she was nominated in the Tunisiana Awards for the best personal blog, to cut the story short ( it is quite annoying for me to talk about it) Amira did not win despite having the majority of votes, and because she was feeling down (who wouldn't!!) so I had the idea to reward her nevertheless ! I  contacted Jess, Sana, Elhem and Sahar  who welcomed the idea mucho mucho , and we got her.....a trophy :D YES a trophy because she deserves all the best and because she is a winner.

the trophy: FANS AWARD, pour notre chère Amira, Best MU blog

Meeting was Elhem's suggestions, a very chic and quiet spot in les Berges du Lac up-north in Tunis, called Sweet Tales: it was perfection : dim lights, delicious pretty looking pastry...

Sweet Tales

Now back to the FANS AWARD ,whose logo has been designed by Elhem the chic architect, with a beautifully designed card where each one of us wrote something for Amira. she was in tears and so were we , one of the most touching moment of my life !

The pastery was very delicious , I chose the Oreo Cheesecake, let me tell ya it's HEAVEN !!! but each one of us had something different and of course we tasted each other's sweet pick :)  the coffee wasn't that good though, it kind of messed up the cheesecake's ambiance, so i had few sips and gave it up in the end! 

me trying to make up my mind what to choose? hmm..... 
the Oreo chessecake (my fav) 
Jess's pick, i can't remember the name of this one :s

the coffee: my least fav thing in Sweet Tales.

Jess's camera was there too, taking shots of every corner, every detail, capturing the laughs and the tears, the funniest faces and the chic outfits, here are some photos Jess took during the meet up , enjoy :

My favorite part was the decor and the BOOKS ! yes you heard it right BOOKS! the idea of this classy café has caught my attention, it is my dream place! if you are following me on Pinterest you would know that one of my favorite movies of all times is  You've Got Mail, not just because Tom Hanks is in it, but also for the Fox Books  where you get to read what you want around a nice warm coffee, that was my dream place: books AND coffee !!!! Sweet Tales brought me many years back, seeing all those books ( sadly in french :s ) was very mesmerizing , i LOVED it !!
Here are few photos Jess took of my favorite corner in Sweet Tales:

here is Jess's outfit shot by me: did you gals notice she lost weight, i love the way her face is glowing, sth is happening, right? :p

had a crush on the blue top and scarf elhem was wearing! LOVE !! 
Amira's necklace designed by Nee Accessories, im in LOVE with it ! 

Last but not Least, Sana took some shots of me playing Cleopatre on the sofa :p but seriously i LOVE them! thank u dear :*
