MY BIG FAT GREEK VACATION

I went off on a family vacation in Greece. Maybe it’s my Greek roots (Hey Thessaloniki!) or maybe it’s the fact that I was born in summer, but the sun and the blue sea are my favorite pastime.

My friends who climb mountains and those who love to hike will forgive me, but I find it hard to understand the pleasure in a challenging trip. As far as I’m concerned, people watching while sitting in the sun drinking a frosty cocktail, is a sport that I simply excel at. Continue Reading

SHAKEN, NOT STIRRED

So, what's with this whole New Year's Eve thing?

Two weeks before the day, target in mind, we set up a “war room“ and call every possible acquaintance because, well, we need a party!

We haven’t been out for a whole year, the living room sofa seemed like the most tempting option for a night out, but suddenly … no! We’re these crazy party animals. We must go out and dance!

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 ;-)

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.
