Hello everyone, I’m Tago! With all the stress & work of college we all need a bit of distraction every now & then to keep our sanity; that’s why I’ll be bringing you what’s new & groovy on the web every week.

  • For all the Gumpy Cat fans out there, Happy Birthday!
  • With all the “If you know this you’re a 90s kid” fad that’s going around, this seems like a very reasonable response for all those people who want me to feel old already!
  • Another, much better, fad that’s going around, is stores having tip jars for their employees. Here are a few innovative, fun ideas to upgrade theirs.
  • Its spring! And with spring comes job fairs and interviews. Here’s a piece of wise advice from those humorous people at Cracked.com
  • In case you haven’t heard about the Russians who climbed the pyramids illegally, here’s all the photos from their unique experience
  • And the grooviest on our list Beyonce’s new Pepsi ad featuring her new upcoming song while uniting her present and past.

 

About Mariem El Tagoury

I am a graduate from German University Cairo. Reading novels is my passion and writing is my release. My guilty pleasures include fashion & playing around with my make-up kit. A couple of years back when I was introduced to the online world, back in 2007; I was quite surprised that in spite of the presence of thousands of young Egyptians who follow the online sphere daily, there wasn’t one site that represented us or our lifestyle. [Later we’d come to see the rise of the political, religion, social-elite, and foodie websites, but still the voice of the average Cairene youth was missing.] I was glad to find out that I wasn’t the only one who had the feeling of the outsider on the internet, that’s why I decided to gather a team to fill a gap & finally find our place online and give Cairo’s youth a real voice that reflects its true culture. I hope you find our site interesting with a new view of life. Besides running the magazine & editing, I write the “Sans Sugarcoating” column, pardon my french, and a couple of other stuff around here!
