You know that time of the week when you can almost smell the weekend approaching and all the stress of work and errands and all the things on your mind seem to just fade away? We love that time!
The weekend is finally upon us! We like to use our weekend time to relax and rest from our crazy week, and get our bodies and minds ready for another one.
This picture, taken during a spontaneous stroll through the beautifully rural Givat Ada in northern Israel, is the image of relaxation and peace of mind.
Stay tuned for a post on our favorite weekend wear, coming up next!
Enjoy your weekend everyone! We’d love to hear about your weekend plans, share them on our facebook page!

As the temperatures drop and the weather gets rainier and colder, we love taking advantage of the last bit of warm sunshine to travel and explore. This weekend’s choice destination was Rosh Hanikra, a beautiful geological site on the Mediterranean coast in northern Israel.
In order to access the geological site, one must take a cable car into the site and on the way enjoy stunning scenic views. The first stop to visit is the old railroad built by the British during the British Mandate in Israel. This railroad was built in attempt to create train access from Israel to Europe that would travel from Tel Aviv to London through Lebanon, Turkey and other countries.
The idea of a railroad that travels from the Middle East into Europe seems like a wonderful dream that in today’s reality seems impossible due to the Middle Eastern conflict.
The next stop are the beautiful grottos: cavernous tunnels formed by sea friction on the soft chalk rocks. We took a stroll inside the grottos and enjoyed the stunning views, some of the world’s most beautiful views in our opinion! The turquoise Mediterranean water was splashing everywhere and sunlight that crept in through the openings made this place appear even more magical.
A nice ending to the trip was a long walk in the old city of Acre (see Acre travel guide and recommendations here
) and lunch at one of the local seafood restaurants.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and wishing you a great week ahead!

Happy almost-weekend fellow fashionistas!
We chose this week’s picture because it really reminds us of fall. You can almost feel the cold wind blowing through the tree. Where we are fall is just starting to show face, so we’re getting very excited about our fall wardrobes. Next week we’ll be sharing our fall essentials and tips for fabulous fall styling!
This photo was taken at Edith Wolfson park, one of the most beautiful parks in Tel Aviv, where the architecture was designed by artist and architect Dani Karavan. We love this place so much we shot two posts here: Black Swans and Ladies in Trousers.
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend, enjoy the romantic weather!

This week’s pick was taken while relaxing at one of our favorite spots for a weekend escape, Alexander River, which flows from the mountains of Samaria to the Mediterranean Sea. This is the natural habitat of giant tortoises, crocodiles, catfish and other beautiful species of fish; it is a great location for a walk through nature or a fun picnic.
Now is the perfect time to enjoy convenient weather, not too hot and still not very cold, before winter starts, and have a lovely picnic in nature with loved ones!

Tomorrow is Yom Kippur, also known as the Day of Atonement, one of the holiest days in the Jewish religion. Jews observe this holy day of atonement and repentance by fasting and praying for 24 hours and asking for forgiveness from those we believe we’ve wronged. While we’re not very devout or religious we think there’s something really beautiful about taking a pause from our hectic lives and taking time to atone for what we believe we’ve done wrong and to appreciate everything we have.
This picture was taken in Israel’s southern desert, on the long road that leads from the South to Tel Aviv, in the center. To us this picture symbolizes the long and winding, yet rewarding journey we’ve had in the past year.
We wish you all a wonderful weekend and easy fast to those who observe Yom Kippur.

Hello lovely fashionistas and fashionistos!
June is almost here and the weather is getting warmer. Time to stock your wardrobe with the perfect items for summer!
Here’s what we’re obsessed with this summer: whites!
The color White symbolizes many things in different cultures; in western culture it is the epitome of purity, cleanliness, and romanticism. One thing is for sure though, it is the ultimate color to survive the hot and sweaty summer months with. Whether worn in the form of a wedding gown or an everyday dress, it will always look more special, festive and royal!
Vera wore a vintage embroidered dress with a thin brown plaited belt and plaited sandals.
Rony wore a chiffon and tulle pearl-adorned dress with bow peep toe pumps and a cream leather and brass oversized clutch.
Both dresses are made from breathable, comfortable fabric and both could be worn as a more casual look, or be the perfect dresses for fabulous summer parties.
We can almost feel the summer breeze now…
