When I came up with EIGHT30, I wanted to open the doors to my world and create a space where career women can get inspiration and ideas for integrating fashion and style into their lifestyles. Since then, just like a fine Swiss watch, I’m writing, editing, shooting and producing content for you, in the hope that it touches you. I look for the exact look that will fit into the right scene and that tells an interesting story, from a slightly different perspective… simple ;-)
To this day, I haven’t exposed my creative and work process, except for little peeks and "behind the scenes" videos on my Instagram stories (if you’re not familiar with this concept yet, click on the profile picture of my Instagram account – you’ll discover a whole world of content). Though each "innocent" image has had hours of work invested in it, thought and discussions with Nimrod my photographer and prolonged staring into the distance (I wonder if you too stare in to the distance as you ponder?).
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.
Somewhere out there in the African bush, there's a tigress walking around proudly in a tight skirt and high heels.
… Yeah, well, maybe not. But in the urban jungle where I live, she roams the streets freely.
Good morning, leopard print is back!
Before you scrunch up your noses at me, let me open with a little confession – Leopard print is one of my favorite fashion trends. I have no explanation for it. I guess the hours of watching Peggy Bundy on high heels while wearing shiny slacks, leopard print shirts and puffy hair did the job during my childhood (For those of you who are not familiar with this character, you probably didn’t grown up in the 80's).
A New Year is at our doorstep and if we look back, there is no doubt that this past year was significant, exciting and very formative. I made some brave decisions, of which I have written in the past, I've accomplished quite a few dreams, but most of all I've lived some amazing experiences. I put my life on a new path, and now it's time to have the cruise control system continue at the same speed and adopt resolutions and goals for the new year.
If we adopt the forecast from the magazines, then it seems the upcoming Autumn is looking quite floral. When you think about it, there's something a little odd about choosing floral or bloom during a season that is mainly affiliated with fallen leaves and bare trees. But perhaps the very opposite is the whole point – from the "nothing" will grow the "something".
Many times in my life growth and renewal sprouted during periods that were gray and gloomy. The lack meaning and truth was really eating at me and didn't stop, until it became that powerful engine that drives change.
