As Jews, I feel as if we sometimes relegate ourselves to our own culture, people and holidays. Maybe it’s because we feel like a minority and want to show that we have pride in our own traditions; we don’t need those of the mainstream. Whatever the reason, I know very few Jews who will admit that they like christmas (I do)....my late French born father was Catholic so I do understand......but there is nothing like Hanukkah.....really.....

A toda la gente que me aporte cosas positivas en mi vida y que me haga feliz, siempre se lo voy a agradecer. Tanto a quienes están ahora como a quienes han estado antes.

To all the people who supply me positive things in my life and that makes me happy, I'll always be grateful. Both those who are now and those who have been before.

Saudi Girls and their cell phone camera….No.2

You see, the Kingdom, KSA is a country of contradictions, girls have access to education and enjoy easy luxurious life style for the most part, latest in fashion and clothes, latest in technology etc. BUT, they are still denied their independence; they can’t even drive . If you have never been to KSA it is hard to put the two facts together because being denied such a simple and basic right represents a dominant image of oppression and it’s just natural for someone to think that girls-women must be all wrapped up in black all the time and have access to nothing except the kitchen and all that jazzy stereotypes.
Well, thankfully it is changing. Restrictions are vanishing by the minute and they’ve gotten more outspoken, more demanding and some of them just can’t wait to show that they are actually not that much different after all hence the pictures ;)


I love it to slick back my hair.....try it is very very nice....

Bill Gates to receive Einstein award from American Friends of the Hebrew University

What do you give the man who has everything? A link with the immortal.

I know lots of people hate Bill Gates and I do not....here is why you should not.....

  • More than any other entrepreneur, Bill Gates is the reason you're using a personal computing device to look at this story right now. For that, he became the world's richest man.
  • Now, Gates is no longer the world's richest man (he is the third richest).....not so shabby......... because he's busy spending his money trying to save the world from disease and poor

  • a kittenish Parisian coquette.” She was the muse and lover of 20th century photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue. Renée Perle was a stunning, elegant, exotic, sophisticated beauty. So effortlessly stylish and graceful

    Renée Perle, was a Romanian Jewish girl who moved to Paris. She became a fashion model and in 1930 she met famous French Photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) who is considered to be one of the leading photographers of the twentieth century (and my personal favourite). Renée became his muse and lived with Lartigue as his girlfriend.

    a little take on Japan

    Japan is a unique country in the way that traditional architecture, clothing and other elements of daily life exist side-by-side with their Western equivalents, and these differences are baked right into the language. The most common word for "clothing" in Japanese is yohfuku, which literally means "Western clothing" like shirts and slacks and business suits, while traditional Japanese clothing like kimono and yukata are covered under the term wafuku ("Japanese clothing"), a totally different category altogether.

Do not use hot water. If it gets to hot let it cool a touch. Add the sugar and yeast and let proof (let it get all foamy and puffy). I realize you don’t need to with instant yeast, but I do anyway. This should take about 10 minutes.In a large bowl add the egg, yogurt, and salt. Whisk to combine.Once the yeast has proofed, add it to the large bowl with the other ingredients and stir until smooth. Add the flour and mix until the dough begins to come together. Begin to knead the dough, until you produce a smooth ball. I almost always need one additional tablespoon of water. However, I have occasionally skipped it. If

     Wrinkle repair

    Botox, the “Coca-Cola'' of wrinkle-blasting injections, shown above, will continue to be the most popular one in this category, plastic surgeons and dermatologists say, but there is more competition on the horizon.

     PurTox is among the substances that could be


     What makes PurTox different? Researchers claim that PurTox is "purer" than Botox, and therefore creates better, longer-lasting results than the wrinkle-reducing injections with which we’re already familiar. The treatment is expected to last from three to five months in most patients

    • Christian Dior: Man Behind The Myth (great insight into the post-war fashion industry)

    If there is one thing I can’t live without it’s books and magazines. Although I suppose that would be two things, but as far as I’m concerned they go hand in hand. The fact that I have an infinite supply of both literally at my fingertips never ceases to amaze and delight me. One might even say I’m a bit of a hoarder of both, but I refuse to feel any shame about that.

    What I am reading this week........


    Pearl necklaces mean different things to different people. To some they are an expensive sphere pulled from the slimy innards of an ocean pearl, to others they are a timeless gift of class and elegance while a minority of pranksters perceives a pearl necklace as a rite of passage that simultaneously impresses their mates and ensures they never have another date with the recipient of their unwelcome endowment. Regardless of one’s leanings when it comes to this social Rorschach test, it is undeniable that rich people love pearl necklaces, Mikimoto or otherwise.
    lest we forget those who have spent tons of cash on their breast implants for them the pearls serve as an excuse,
    to have people stare at their chests...not that the pearls are needed  -but it is an front.

    ÉCOUTEZ! BB Brunes

     "Have you heard of BB Brunes?"
      Most people have not, even though they're très grand in Paris - and they have tons of sold out concerts to prove it.
    Named after the Serge Gainsbourg song "Initials BB" and Boulevard Brune in Paris, the band has a 2009 Victoire award - the French version of a Grammy - and has three albums so far: 2007's Blonde Comme Toi (Blond Like Me), 2009's Nico Teen Love, and the recently released Long Courrier (Long Run).

     Check out the video above to see what the frenzy's all about -- not only is their sound great, but their style's fantastique, too...
