The Evian Chucky Dolls…

evian-surfer-baby

The evian babies are back! Hanging out in a sandy paradise where everyone is a toddler. I was so excited to check it out but ended up disappointed! There’s just something not right and disturbing about this advert don’t you agree? Maybe it’s their weird expressions and laughs that reminds me the chucky dolls… SCARY!!!!

There, I said it evian Baby Bay is one of the most annoying ads! The brand’s previous advert, ‘Baby & Me’, is my all favorite, went viral with 123 million YouTube views, after showing adults who see baby versions of themselves reflected in a car wing mirror and shop window.

The evian Baby Bay outdoor campaign features six models and their baby doppelgängers, including fashion model Gigi Hadid alongside Adrian, Jackson, Lotta, Matteo and Yohann. Packs and bottles display images of baby surfers along with their adult versions as they would have looked before drinking evian. A collector’s bottle that reveals the “babyfied” reflection of the film’s hero through the water is being distributed in large retailers and convenient store Via: Adeevee

A day in my life as a Community Manager

startup-593341_1280

Community Management might be one of the hot careers right now, everyone who is tech savvy thinks that he can be a community manager. Most people still don’t know what a Community Manager does. They call me ( Taba3 el facebook) not cool right?

I always find myself having to explain to my friends, and parents, what exactly I do, posting updates, engaging with fans, and handling customer service issues are only a small portion of the job.
A Community Manager is the face of a company, managing communications in both directions. This digital-savvy employee is responsible for all communications, PR, social media, events, and content creation, among other things.
It’s a Web 2.0 communications role, incorporating online tools and in-person networking to create relationships and ultimately build the company’s brand, both online and off. via: social fresh

I’ve been following Humans of New York on Facebook since 2012, on Instagram as well so I wont miss any post. It’s amazing how touching and inspiring a photo with just a line or two can be!
You always have something to read, sometimes is the photo, sometimes is the story, and always there is something inspiring and interesting in the comment section: an advice, point of view, or just some words of encouragement…

My Favorite Pop and soul artist  Seal will be singing his most famous tunes in Beiteddine festival!

Seal has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide and released a total of nine studio albums in his career so far. His inimitable voice was first heard on Adamski’s 1991 club smashKiller and another Top 10 hit Crazy arrived shortly thereafter as Seal went on to achieve global acclaim with his debut.

With global smash hits including: Kiss from a Rose, which appeared on the soundtrack to the 1995 film Batman Forever, Seal has won many music awards throughout his career. As a songwriter, he has received the British Academy’s Ivor Novello Award, for Best Song Musicially and Lyrically, in consecutive years for Killer and Crazy.

On his latest album release 7 Seal commented, “It concerns the most sung about, most talked about and most documented emotion – love”. He reunited with long-time collaborator producer Trevor Horn. This continued partnership began with his debut platinum certified releaseSeal (1991) and continued with the quadruple-platinum Seal II (1994), the gold selling Human Being (1998) and Seal IV (2003).
