Things to do before you‘re 40

This week I‘ll be celebrating my 40th birthday. OMG!!!!!!!

How did this come about and where was I sleeping while all these years flew by? … Only god knows. Anyway, mentally – I‘m only 28.

Birthdays like these are considered milestones. On such an occasion, most of us will stop and take the time to conduct a vicious list of ambitions and achievements they‘ve yet to fulfill, and then there are those who will go through a crisis. My ”midlife crisis“ occurred when I was 36, by the way. I always was ahead of my time ;-)

I had quit my job and gone off to chase my dreams. In retrospect, that crisis was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. Continue Reading

Recalculating route

Last week I went back to the office.

I started a new position as the Marketing Manager of a large, influential law firm called GKH Law (or ”Gross“ – as it is known within the industry). 170 lawyers, a large administrative team, in short – madness.

And so – the transformation is complete!

I‘m going back to a law firm, but this time – in the right position ;-) Continue Reading

TEL AVIV YA HABIBI

For the past two decades or so – Tel aviv has been my home.

The city “where no one has a day-job” and where the espresso and sushi enthusiasts reside along with the “sour faces” ;-)

The past month has been particularly Tel Avivian for me. A combination of free time and seasonal changes led to spending time in many events and product launches, so I’ve decided to dedicate this article to local creations – a celebration of Israeli fashion.

To present to you some of the designers I truly respect, and that I believe make the Fashion industry in Tel Aviv unique, diverse and different. Continue Reading

LET YOURSELF BLOOM

“Oh, the places you’ll go!” – Dr Seuss once said.

But who wants to venture out? Allow me to stay in my zone of comfort – so familiar and safe. No risk, no challenge, no effort – let me just scatter my days in the wind. As surprising as it may sound – most of us sin with these thoughts, and lately I found myself justifying – and almost convincing myself that the familiar and safe is the right place for me.

But the time has come to recalculate my route and reinvent myself. That’s how start-ups are – one day you’re a star and one day you run out of funds. Time to face complicated questions such as: what do you want to do? What do you love? What are your passions? Continue Reading

IT WAS ON SALE

”It was on sale!“ – a phrase that makes my friends roll their eyes and crack up in laughter, every time I put it to use.

What can I do?! I‘m my own cliché! Give me a good sale, end of season discount or some unordinary deal – and I‘m rendered senseless.

In the past few years, I‘ve honed the skill of locating hot items in discounted prices, so I decided to write a hitchhiker‘s guide to the world of discounts. Continue Reading
