sunsets in Montefiore

There is nothing better than the golden hour here in Tel Aviv. The sun paints the sky a deep bronze, creating picture perfect moments. 


My #ootd was this white off the shoulder shirt (link here) which I paired with black skinny jeans (here) and nude Steve Madden sandals. My sunglasses are from Carolina Lemke. 

It’s a stylish yet relaxed fit for almost any occaision. 


Thanks so much for reading, and keep on doing so because I have a lot to say!

the Paper Bag look: SS17 LOOK #2

One of my favorite trends I noticed on the runways of top brands, such as Balmain & Stella McCartney, is the paper bag trousers. It’s all about loose fabric tied relatively high up on the waist, creating a slim silhouette & an elegant look.

This trend suits me specifically because it diverts the eye to my upper body as the pants are tied tightly to accentuate the waist. I paired these statement pants with a tight bodysuit. I finished the look with some loafers as this toned it down & made it a little more casual. There are many ways to take the trends off the runways and make it something you can wear from day to day, & that’s what I tried to achieve in this look.

Shop the look:

Bodysuit here, trousers here, shoes here, & bag here.

SS17 look #1

The trends for Spring Summer 2017 have sprung.

So many new designs were displayed on the runways during New York & Paris Fashion Week, and I loved it!
Whether its ruffles, sequins, shoulder pads, or any other outrageously designed sleeve, its in. It adds a whole new dimension & interest to the look as it turns heads & catches everyone’s eye. These two incredible pieces were shown on the runways of Yves Saint Laurent.

As soon as this trend came into fashion I started to imagine how I could pull it off in my own way, & when I saw this black & white shirt at the store I knew exactly how I was going to style it. I paired the checkered shirt with black jeans & loafers, something simple to create a more casual look.

I am in love with these shoes & the gold embellishment. Loafers are super trendy right now & they are a great pair of shoes to own because they can be worn in so many different styles. Another super cute accessory that everyone is obsessing over are the mini back packs. I grabbed this cute black leather one to finish up the look.

Topshop shirt, shoes, bag & jeans..

I have a lot more SS17 outfits planned, so stay tuned. X

LATE NIGHT THOUGHTS

“You’re too much,” he said. 

“You talk too much, love too much, feel too much. And I don’t know what to do with your muchness.”

“Just love me,” she whispered. “Ï’ll always be too much. I know I talk too much but most of the times I’m talking about you. I know I love too much but that’s the only way I know how to love. I also know I feel too much but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Because in my muchness is my soul and when I love, I love with all my soul. So love me with everything you have. Love me and my muchness even if it’s too much for you.”

This is an excerpt from a book I’m currently reading, A Book I’ll Never Write by Devon Eaton. I always remind myself to start reading again like I used to, & this book was a perfect choice because I can only read something that captivates me & freezes time for a while.

A Book I’ll Never Write is a combination of intense poetry written over a the years by someone who was clearly deeply & unconditionally in love. I feel that this book is something everyone should take time to read, it restores a little faith in our generation of technology.

I love this excerpt specifically because I strongly believe that indulging in your feelings & expressing every single one is what ultimately makes each one of us unique & different. Personally I love it when I am deep in my feelings, whether its love or anger or sadness because sometimes its the only thing that reminds me that I’m human & alive. Sometimes we get so lost in work or studying that we forget how to feel, & its upsetting because the ability to feel is what separates humans from the other beings.

Have you ever been so present in the moment that you feel like you’ve stopped at the peak of a roller coaster about to plunge of the edge, but you’re halted there for a split second?

Euphoria, maybe.

It’s something I live for. I cannot go more than a week or two without feeling lost & losing my sense of reality, because of the current situation I’m in. Being in a boarding school is one of the best things that’s ever happened to me, but it also restricts me to such an extent that I forget who I am & often find myself feeling numb & angry because I tend to distance myself from the certain things that make me who I am.

Reminding you to stay true to yourself & embrace every moment in which you lose yourself in your feelings, & appreciate that you.re lucky enough to experience such moments.

Be someone who feels too much or loves too much, the world needs more people like that.

Thank you for reading, & please keep on doing so as I have a LOT to say.

Best Dressed: 2017 Golden Globes Awards

As we all know, the 74th annual Golden Globes Awards took place in the Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills yesterday, 8 January 2017.

Looking through a ton of the images from yesterday’s event & the after party, I couldn’t decide who’s outfit was my favorite. I put together a few of the women that I thought were best dressed.

The first gown that caught my attention was that of Continue reading “Best Dressed: 2017 Golden Globes Awards”

Laced Up

To lighten up the vibe from my last post, I’m going to start including some fashion posts here on my blog. I feel like fashion plays a major role in who a person is, & allows them to be true to themselves. I feel like with every new outfit, whether it is high fashion or sweatpants & a T shirt, you still get to express your own unique style.

Lace & velvet are super trendy lately, so that’s what inspired me when putting this look together. I paired the look with white Nike Air Force trainers, which you can get here. Continue reading “Laced Up”

DEATH CAMPS, CREMATORIUMS & A MOUNTAIN OF ASHES

This is going to be a very long post, so bear w/ me. It is also overdue, due to the fact that I had to find words to describe my Poland experience.

(All photos in this post were taken by me with my Canon 650D).

In August 2016, I was lucky enough to be a part of the annual trip to Poland with my school, & there is nothing in this world that I would exchange in place of that week of my life.

This post is about the significance of the things that I saw, experienced & felt. The Holocaust was an awful tragedy that affected the Jewish population terribly, however we are still strong & undefeated, which makes me incredibly proud to be Jewish.

The flight was early in the morning, & I remember meeting my best friend moments before heading to the airport with the rest of our group. We were beyond excited, but couldn’t help the feeling of not knowing what to expect, or what to feel.

On the airplane I remember when we saw our first glimpse of Warsaw from above. I grabbed my camera to take a photo of the view & I knew I was already in love with Poland. Continue reading “DEATH CAMPS, CREMATORIUMS & A MOUNTAIN OF ASHES”

the future awaits

After not being able to write in a while, I was given a chance to find myself & explore my creativity.

Recently I was lucky enough to meet a photographer who has similar dreams & goals to me. It has already been an amazing experience to collaborate with someone who shares the same passion as I do, & I am impatient to see what we will be able to achieve.

It is always exciting to meet someone that is able to share their own perspective on photography & to be able to learn from them.

How to Love Yourself

This post relates to mainly women and girls.

There are many reasons for why you don’t think you’re beautiful.

One reason could be that in today’s day & age the word beauty simply means ‘perfection’.

This idea of perfection is perceived by unrealistic expectations of unhealthy weights, photo shopped bodies, fame, money & luxurious life styles. Perfection doesn’t exist. It’s not real. What looks so ‘perfect’ on the outside is almost always flawed on the inside. These days, nothing is what it seems.

In my opinion, a majority of the people that make up today’s society assume that because someone does not look like a person is “supposed” to, does not have legs that never end or perfect skin, then they are considered ugly, or there is no need to pay them any attention. There is so much more to a person than what they show. There is a personality, character, love, and beauty. But they will never be given a chance by society because they don’t “fit” society’s idea of normal.

A camera cannot capture the authentic beauty that lies deep within someone’s personality.

Relationship Talk: breakups, make ups & heartbreaks

It’s beautiful, isn’t it? Two people who are utterly & unconditionally in love with one another. It all looks so easy. Finding that perfect someone, being in a relationship & having that someone to hold you when you cry, kiss when you feel like it or laugh with until your stomach hurts. You look at other people’s relationships and think, they look so happy together, & it seems like nothing would ever come between them.

However, what seems so perfect on the outside is hardly ever as perfect & beautiful on the inside.

It takes trust, faith, compromise, strength, unconditional love & support, & self control to handle a relationship in the teen age.

When you take the time to get to know someone, really well, you start to see that it isn’t all about their appearance, flowers or chocolates on your 1 month anniversary. It becomes about how you compromise to make each other happy, the small sacrifices you make, going the extra length to show someone you really care, or surprising them at the most unexpected times just to make them smile.

Months pass, even a year or two, and you fall deeper & deeper in love. You know more about that person than you do about anyone else. You know how to make them smile, you know their deepest secret & their most embarrassing story. Trust grows. Love deepens. It all feels like a dream.
