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.
“Coming to the beach?” Two words I have never used during a work day (…unfortunately). But there are some lucky ladies that call the beach their office and the sun their desk lamp running their career to its light.
As part of the article series about career women who inspire me, this week I decided to host an impressive woman who made the sea in to a glorious career. A real champion with awards (!!!) – Attorney Vered Bouskila, former Olympic sailor and vice president of business development and project management at the Israeli Olympic Committee.
EIGHT30's guide to the key fashion trends to know about for spring/summer 2018
Good morning, spring is here!
Important existential questions like "Where do you celebrate the Passover Seder?“ Fill the air. New designs and models pop up like mushrooms after the rain and the office is handing out holiday coupons again.
So, before you rush to cash in those gift cards on pots for your mother, I've decided to share with you the list of trends you must adopt in spring – summer 2018.
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).
There are things that I guess I would never be able to understand. Such as the male brain for example.
I’ll give you an example – you got up in the morning, got ready, really put some effort in, wore your most fashionable outfit and went to work. At the corner coffeeshop you met your friend. He took a long glance at you and… the best line he managed to get out was something to do with a soccer team?! Unbelievable!
You’re convinced that your red top is a symbol for femininity and seduction and all he sees is that you’re a Manchester United fan. Go figure :- )
