AW2018/19 TRENDS – PART II

THE KEY FASHION TRENDS TO KNOW ABOUT FOR AUTUMN – WINTER 2018/19

It is now official – daylight saving time has begun and the days have turned a bit colder.

Although it seemed for a minute like winter has failed to arrive, there‘s a big chance that while you‘re reading these lines winter will have already landed in our region.

So yes, the Israeli winter is warmer compared to farther regions abroad, but there‘s no reason it should be any less fashionable and updated. So I decided to put together a follow-up article to the trend guide I posted a few weeks ago and set some order in the various fashion trends I haven‘t addressed yet. Continue Reading

WHISKEY WOMAN

“You’re saying there are women who drink whiskey?” – he asked, in shock. But before I unleashed a smart-ass, feminist speech, I looked into the surprised eyes of a man who just yesterday celebrated his 87th birthday, and who has obviously seen a thing or two in his life. He smiled at me warmly and added: “my children don’t even drink wine!” Right away I knew I was in for an interesting evening.

THE KEY FASHION TRENDS TO KNOW ABOUT FOR Autumn – Winter 2018/19

Welcome back to reality!

The holiday season is over, you’ve stopped posting photos from dreamy vacations (thank god!) and as for me – the opulent family dinner season has come to an end.

I don’t know what it’s like for you, but with every year that goes by – our holiday

dinners seem to become more of a feast that’s gone out of control. If that’s not enough, during the days I had a break from all the holiday fuss, I found myself attending culinary events and Friday night dinners at friends’ houses where – how can I phrase this elegantly – common sense was left outside of the kitchen as well.

SECRET N°3

So what’s my secret?

I was challenged with this question by James Richardson Duty Free over the last holiday, upon receiving the new perfume by Parisian beauty and Perfume brand – Eisenberg Paris: Secret III Voile de Chyrpe.

The search for an answer led me many places. I tried to think about my professional and personal secrets in order to derive a certain essence from them, which would serve as a key to any change or process I’ve gone through… It is a new year, we’ve sorted out our resolutions and now – it’s time for action, right?!

BOM DIA PORTO

My parents were seeking a destination for a cool summer vacation. One thing led to another, and I found myself in Porto.

It’s not as if I completely barged in on their trip, they simply realized their vacation wouldn’t be the same without me ;-)

I’ve been wanting to visit Portugal – and Porto specifically – for quite some time now. The stories and pictures that were related to this destination stroke an urge in me – to experience this incredible town and travel to a place that resembles no other I’ve ever visited before. Continue Reading
