Every morning when I wish you all good morning, I think to myself where it is that I meet you? With the morning coffee? On the way to the office? In the middle of an important department meeting?
If we're talking about one particular career woman then one thing is definitely clear – She's already managed to get up to date with all the latest, listen to the morning show, blow dry her hair, straighten it, put on THE perfect outfit and make it to the office while reading every email and message possible. All that after an extremely short night because she simply had to stay up and watch the most popular TV show. In other words – meet Attorney at Law Liat Golan.
A few weeks ago I decided to expose, in a series of articles, these secret career women club members who are a constant source of inspiration to me.

Today is International Woman's Day. I thought to myself "how this day and femininity in all its glory should be celebrated?" I remember those nights when I entertained the thought of launching a fashion blog and in particular, I remember that empowered feeling that filled me up, since it was up to me to create a magazine that would be used to promote self-love and empowerment. A source of inspiration for us to live our lives as independent, opinionated and successful women.
The Israeli winter is a bit deceiving, actually it seems to me that this is the only country in the world where you can actually sun bake at the peak of winter and a week later get a chest infection from the freezing cold.
It could just be the Israeli essence – varied and unpredictable, sometimes even extreme and mostly prevents you from staying in your comfort zone. Maybe it's even the essence of creation – One moment the sun is shining, nature blossoms, and the next the sky darkens and you're flooded.
Now, take that minor detail into consideration and try to manage a fashion blog …
You know those mornings where you stand in front of the closet a little lost, scanning all the clothes in there and they throw you back this blank stare, lazily curled up inside themselves, and mutter back at you "Leave us alone… not today". Those mornings when your closet look a pale, outdated and sleepy, so much that even your pajamas look like a pretty good option and even matches perfectly with the carpet in the office?
I'll let you in on a little secret, I have a little trick I keep for those days where your body woke up before your head, those "I have nothing to wear" days – ACCESSORISE!
