COFFEE AND MASCARA, THE LOOK

READY, SET, GLOW

I decided not to travel to Fashion Week.

It was important for me to spend the holiday break with family and friends, I was nominated for a new and demanding position, but – to be honest – I was experiencing a creativity crisis.

After two particularly busy years, I realized I needed a vacation. To find the break-even point, to locate new sources of inspiration and to relight my fire – the “conservation of energy law.”

LONDON CALLING

So where are you spending the holiday?

I don’t know what about you, but my family is always willing to trade the holiday meal for Ben-Gurion Airport queues. We all know, after all, that nothing beats the holiday atmosphere at the airport! The congestion, the crowded security checks and the wonderful feeling that you may miss your flight any minute now ;-)

THE LOOK, YES, WEEKEND!

IT’S WINE O’CLOCK!

Last month I received two tempting offers. One business (the rumors are true, I've returned to the business world), and the other pleasure – an invitation to a private visit to the Galil Mountain Winery with friends and lots of wine.

After a year of achieving dreams and recalculating my route, it finally happened!  All the dots joined into a line, and the symbolic timing proved to me that I cannot escape from myself.  I'm a career woman, who finds interest and challenges in the business environment, but I'm also an uncompromising hedonist. I love fashion, beauty and style. In short, "both this and that!" So, there's no need to give up one for the other.

MIND YOUR BUSINESS, THE LOOK

DO IT YOURSELF

Good morning to all the dreamers!

Yes, Yes… you out there. You with the amazing ideas that wake up every morning, waiting for happiness, but life doesn’t have any room in the calendar for it.

So there are reasons, excuses, detailed explanations, but between us – Why not now?

Are you moving uncomfortably in your seat right now? GOOD! But before everything, it should be made clear – There is no need for sharp movements, embarking on financial adventures or quitting your job, god forbid. You can try, taste, test and make decisions later.  By the way, after the decision has been made, it’s advised to ask questions. To check whether the path you have chosen leads you to the place you were aiming for, or whether it’s appropriate to examine a change of course.

ANTI – AGING

A few weeks ago, I celebrated my birthday (38th, just in case you we’re wondering) A total carnival that started with a Coldplay concert in Warsaw and finished with a fancy garden party in Tel Aviv. I don’t know about you, but for me, this whole age thing has always been somewhat of a joke. After all there isn’t any logical way to explain all the changes that have been happening to me in the last year, let’s not assume that the "middle age crisis" has come early :-)

On the other hand, for those who claim I look younger for my age, I always say – “late bloomer”.
