Giving Thanks

I'm often not huge on making a big public deal about what I'm thankful for. But I thought, what the heck, isn't a blog for these kind of things?

I am thankful for:

living in one of the most exciting cities around! I love Washington D.C. and I love my own city too.  It's the perfect mix of a busy city life and gorgeous, green suburbia. I've been blessed that I've grown up, gone to college, and now live in an area that is so synced with my personality.



my family. Even though I come from a small family (I'm an only child) and a very distant family. I am thankful for having a very caring family who is never more than a phone call away.

my roommates, aka my unphotogenic dog and my boyfriend. They make my life richer and challenge me to be a better person on a daily basis.

my travel opportunities. This past year I've been able to go to Scottsdale, New Orleans (Mardi Gras!), San Francisco, Chicago, Cabo San Lucas, and next to Miami. All places I've never visited before. Many thanks goes to my job and to my family and friends who are willing to jump on extra long flights with me.


and lastly, the 23rd year of my life. It's been very eye-opening and full of new, challenging experiences. This has easily been the most difficult year of my life and I couldn't be more thankful for that.

xoxo and happy (belated) thanksgiving to all!

Get to Know Me

Hey all! Welcome to my blog! I'm trying to start out blogging, so here is my attempt. I want to blog about technology, my experiments makeup and hairstyles, random hobbies, and life in general. If that sounds even remotely interesting, please consider following me! If you post things along those lines, leave a comment and I will be sure to check your blog out! I will try to post once a week or so to get myself started.

I got this from Ysis, a beauty and lifestyle blogger who has amazing review of beauty products and hairstyles.

Here we go…

1. Are you named after anyone? I'm actually named after my dad but the spelling is different. I'm obviously the female version of his name.

2. When was the last time you cried? Dear god, anytime my dog does something cute, anytime my boyfriend does something adorable, movies, everything.

3. Do you have kids? No.

4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself? Damn right I would!

5. Do you use sarcasm a lot? Only with people who know me pretty well. Otherwise my resting bitch face just makes me seem like I'm serious.

6. Will you ever bungee-jump? I don’t think so. I'm pretty afraid of heights and don't really have any intention of volunteering myself for whip-lash.

7. What’s your favorite cereal? I love Life.

8. What’s the first thing you notice about people? Behavior and posture are something I really pay attention to.

9. What is your eye color? Brown.

10. Scary movie or happy endings? There's not many good scary movies that come out nowadays. If it's a good scary movie (don't get it confused with gory movies) I'll go with that. Apart from that, give me my happy endings.

11. Favorite smells? Nina by Nina Ricci, Chanel No 5, and smell right after it rains.

12. Summer or winter? Can I choose autumn? I'm a winter baby and I love snow, but I would much prefer if it only lasted two months tops.

13. Computer or television? Tough. Probably television.

14. What’s the furthest you’ve ever been from home? Israel.

15. Do you have any special talents? I'm great at picking up new technologies. I'm more of a jack of all trades.

16. Where were you born? Toronto.

17. What are your hobbies? Watching TV shows, video games, trying to be crafty, compulsively online shopping, trying (and failing) to train my dog, relaxing at home.

18. Do you have any pets? STARLA. Get to know her. Follow my insta. This is the one and only time I will command you to do something.


19. Favorite movie? I struggle with favorites. A Knight's Tale, Prometheus, Slumdog Millionaire.

20. Do you have any siblings? Nope. Only Child.

21. What do you want to be when you grow up? Happy.

I tag anyone who hasn’t done this and who wants to do it :)
