Lenah Hassaballah


Lenah’s friends would describe her as easy going, chill and a straight shooter: she says it like it is. She adores her huge, loud and proud Egyptian family, including of course the latest addition; her wonderful fiancé who has somehow managed to fit his way into the crazy bunch.

8 Annoying Types Of Newly Married Girls

So as most of you already know, I am newly married – well, I’ve been married since August, so it depends on what you call “new” (my dad will consider it irrelevant until the day I bear a child to show for my marriage LOL). Anyway, being in the mid 20s age group, a lot […]

In fact, it’s about to explode (get your minds out of the gutter people, I’m still talking about the thermometer!). It’s EVERYWHERE. I’d be happily […]

Diaries of a Bride to Be: Reading the Fatha, Part Three

I had a few friends over at my house in Marina as well as Yassine’s family, so I was busy entertaining them and making sure everyone was having a good time. This kind of added a shit load of stress on me because everyone wanted to do something different and wanted me with them. I was trying so […]

We were all dressed up: My parents, brothers and grandparents in the salon patiently waiting for their arrival.

Little did I realize that the clock was ticking and Yassine’s parents had […]
