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.

STATUES: QUEEN!

I flew to Eilat for vacation.

Why Eilat? Because I'm in love with that city. Honestly!

Like many things in life, there are also two schools of thought when it comes to Eilat, for some it’s a transit city on the way to their vacation in the Sinai Desert or nearby Aqaba and others find it very charming. Beach, heat, duty free shopping and If you arrive before the start of the season, the desert city can offer quite the pampering holiday.

MASKIT

I went on vacation outside the city. Just like that. In the middle of the week.

I don’t know about you, but the thought of that even being possible, without booking time off in advance from work, without rescheduling meetings and starting to program my “out of office” messages, excites the hell out of me. I can’t remember the last time I answered “YES” to a spontaneous getaway, without using those awful pair of words "board meeting".

This whole occurrence was so unusual to the point where even Mrs. Waze didn’t believe her eyes when I input the destination – Moshav Liman, which is located along the coast of Western Galilee. I even had to stop twice (!) Just to make sure I was going in the right direction.

THE GLAMOROUS LIFE

We were out on a fashion shoot day.

By “we” I mean Nimrod – my good friend and the talented photographer who has been accompanying me in the past year, a bunch of garments, and myself.

As like any other shooting days, we decided to meet on a Friday morning (which is the career women's day off), when this time the purpose was to shoot a fashion production dedicated to Shavuot holiday.

I woke up at 05:30AM (it’s amazing how I jump out of bed like an Olympic athlete for shooting days while on other days the alarm clock is tired of playing the same sound and begs for me to wake up and get my buttocks towards the shower), styled my hair, slowly put on my makeup and then, just when I started feeling like a model, went to load our production equipment into my private vehicle… Oh definitely! This is what you call the glamorous life! ;- )

POSTCARDS

Once, we used to send postcards. Write ourselves in as neat handwriting as possible, and describe our great experiences reserved to distant lands, written on top of a spectacular and colorful image.
I spent the holiday break here in Tel Aviv, so I really wanted to write about my exciting experiences. About the city that swept me in and about the quiet, calm and rest that made my days so pleasant, but none of that really happened …
