About Ivy

dana khairallah gap ivy says styldby

My real name is Dana Khairallah but I’ve been anonymously blogging as Ivy since 2009.

I finally revealed my identity at #IvysBigReveal event last August. Read about the full story behind this blog here or view the images below.

Ivy Says is the first lifestyle blog in Lebanon. I first burst onto the scene with my dating adventures and satirical pieces on social dynamics in Lebanon that everyone related to but a very few talked about.

Like most girls I’m also very big on fashion, beauty/makeup reviews and all things pretty. Food is a hobby and burgers are a vice. I’ve also appointed myself this city’s fashion crime scene reporter, if a celeb somewhere has committed a heinous fashion violation most likely they’ll end up here.

I have a lot to say about anything and everything in town so be prepared because I like to share the good, the bad and the downright ugly.

Thanks to the big success of this blog, I quit my full-time job as a Political Consultant to work as a freelance Reputation Manager and SM Strategist, I now work with celebrities and brands on shaping and monitoring both their online and offline images. I’m also a copywriter.

In 2013 I  landed my own segment on season 6 of MTV Lebanon hit late night show Talk of the Town called Talk of The World! Click here for more

From November 2014 until January 2015  I was Dunes Verdun Brand Ambassador read more about it here

I’m proud to announce that 12th of November marked the first episode of my  radio show IVY SAYS on NRJ 99.1 more here

  12. Just came across your blog and have read only a few posts…but so far I love you style of writing and find your topics quite interesting =).. what’s your background? how long have you been living in Lebanon?

  13. Dear Ivy,
    I am a Portuguese woman, with 42 years old going on my 1st business trip to Beirut next week. I was looking for Lebanon dress code and I run into your article.
    I enjoyed your writings and style very much, and you showed me a Lebanon I didn’t knew existed. Clever independent Women!
    I hope you don’t take my request as a liberty, but since you leave in Beirut, could you recommend me some fashionable restaurants and interesting places to visit? Could you advise me on the dress code for business meetings as well as dinning out?
    Thank you very much
