Things I wanted you to know - 
JGsome thoughts and actions to think aboutand you should

It was just a matter of time before the tidbits picked up the sponsorhip of
Victoria's Secret.....
So again, all I can say is..........THANKS...........

Moi, je crois que je dois avoir le flair d’un limier, donc je perçois toutes les odeurs de façon hyper précise, et je distingue l’odeur de tout le monde comme si j’étais juste en face de la personne. Du coup, les bonnes odeurs me filent la pêche et sont agréables (café, eucalyptus, menthe, air iodé…) MAIS ne serait-ce que l’ombre d’une odeur nauséabonde et je fronce le nez, je me couvre le nez et la bouche l’air dégoûté.

I think I might have the nose of a bloodhound, so every fragrance is so distinct and I can smell everyone’s scent almost like I’m looking at their face. So lovely scents are always uplifting and inspiring (coffee, eucalyptus, mint, the salty ocean, Cuban cigars, my special Cartier Cologne…) BUT even a twinge of a displeasing smells may lead to a crinkled nose, hand covering mouth and nose. It might seem a little dramatic. 

For moi this is another way to start to day.....it gives me energy.........

It's National Watermelon Day

Watermelon grows in semi-desert regions, so it's had to adapt and evolve to thrive in extreme dryness. Because of that, watermelon is 90% water, and filled with vitamins and amino acids that provide toning and hydration benefits.

Yes, I speak French.  Saint Laurent. Hermés. Louis Vuitton. Chanel. Dior. Lanvin….

ótima cantora, e tem estilo próprio! Ela pode vestir o que quiser que fica linda do 
mesmo jeito

The September issues are about to hit the newsstands and the first to drop is W starring Gigi Hadid photographed by Steven Meisel. It’s a fantastic cover and gets two thumbs up from yours truly.

Elegant dresses, tiaras, castles, glitter ... Every girl at Some Point in Their Lives, Even if for just a moment, dreamed of being  a princess.

Vestidos elegantes, tiaras, castillos, purpurina…Todas las chicas en algún momento de su vida, aunque sea por tan sólo un instante, han soñado con ser una princesa.

I love this Chanel dress....and Jessica Alba wears it well!!!!

in many ways the entire (Victoria's Secret) brand exists to create an illusion of the perfect woman.

Millimeters separate the beautiful from the merely attractive

Mugdha Godse.....many models when their breasts look bigger say some ridiculous things - like, I have been drinking lots of milk or - they just got bigger because of nature when in reality they got implants...so Mugdha readily admits to breasts implants.....more power to her.....


As the world’s gaze turns to Brasil for next summer olypmic games, the tidbits has compiled a list of some of the top 5 favourite things about Brasil 

1)    The Rio Carnival

Colour. Music. Samba. Feathers. The winning combination of style, tradition and passion has established the Rio Carnival as the world’s premier party! We love how you can see the influences of different generations and even centuries within the carnival costumes including Art Deco, 20s and more recently the 70s and 80s love for vibrancy.

2)    Gisele

One of the most influential and recognizable super models of the last 15 years, Gisele has walked for over 20 fashion houses including becoming an iconic Victoria Secret angel. We love Gisele’s relaxed yet classic style, which has helped her secure front covers for Vogue, Harpers Bazar, Vanity Fair and Rolling Stones. More recently Gisele has acted as a United Nations good will ambassador and has undertaken extensive charity work across the globe.

3)    Copacabana beach

One of the most legendary and potentially famous beaches in the world, this is the place to be seen and to see! Anything goes; this 3-mile stretch of white sand has it all – theatre performances, sport events, music and food! Make sure you accessories with lots of colour to stand out from the crowd.

4)    Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo is one of the up and coming cities for world fashion. The Sao Paulo fashion week is now considered to be the 5th most important on the international circuit behind only London, Paris, New York and Milan. At this years event we loved Patricia Mottas S/S 15 collection with lots of drop waisted dresses and Alexandre Herchcovitch S/S 15 collection with bold colours and 50’s inspired silhouettes. With some of the most sought after design houses such as Burberry, Gucci and Valentino opening flagship stores, the city is well and truly on the fashion map.

5)    The Girl from Ipanema

One the all time favorite song is more than just a musical track, its evokes a era of style and sophistication. Recorded in 1962, the song reached number 5 in the USA but only got to number 29 in the UK charts. The song was inspired by a young girl who lived in the fashionable Ipanema neighbourhood of Rio De Janeiro and who used to stroll past the stylish cafes and bars in the area. The ‘young girl’ was Helo Pinheiro who has become a famous face across Brasil due to her beauty. 

Every day for me is Holocaust Remembrance Day!

Take me back to this time when people dressed impecably and 
had nicer manners....

How do models see themselves???

They spend their lives being molded into someone else's creative vision, but how do models see themselves?

A Chinese Model friend sent me this....and it is amazing.....really amazing and I do not
impress easily...........

besides having global citizen passport - I have also a Louis Vuitton passport (smiles)....I rest my case.....

Books and special edition magazines should never be thrown out.....they are kept in special room(s)....I rest my case!!!!..very few have a collection like JG!!!

I love Daphne Groeneveld but this is not kosher....drinking Evian water from a plastic
bottle it must from crystal bottle...is a JG must (smiles)

❝ Glamour is constructed, elegance is acquired, and charm is innate.  Most of being elegant is knowing when to say “no,” and how (quickly, neutrally and with as little detail as possible, and more often than not).Manners are a must,

La beauté physique, comme tout le reste, c’est toujours cette bonne vieille histoire du verre à moitié plein/vide : il suffit de se concentrer sur le positif pour éliminer le négatif.

Adriana Lima is a supermodel who does not fear age and has no intention of leaving the modelling industry anytime soon or even stepping aside for younger models.

2NE1 – “I Am The Best”
This song may be 4 years old, but it sure as heck doesn’t feel it. 2NE1 (pronounced as both ‘To Anyone’ and ‘TwennyOne’—genius!) threw down the gauntlet with the audacious brag anthem “I Am The Best,” whose chorus essentially mimics the sound of a machine gun. It’s pure style and pure attitude. The video features a vast array of amazing high fashion, including a whole section at the end with the most expensive punk-inspired outfits you’re ever likely to see.

a little take on Japan-日本,

the word 恋 (koi) is an important one, encompassing the burning, almost 
compulsive feelings you have for someone when you're experiencing 
romantic love with them, and "have a date" 

One word  the Japanese use when receiving some kind of compliment is okage-sama de (oh-KAG-geh sah-mah deh), a phrase which literally means "thanks to you," which is a little weird since the person doing the complimenting probably had nothing to do with the acquisition of the skill in question. Often when you say something nice to a Japanese person, they'll turn the kindness back onto you with this phrase.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a woman in possession of good skin is in want of better skin. Nowadays, in our instant gratification society—of one-hour teeth whitening and spray-on tans—we expect to get it post-haste. But a rapid plan of attack isn’t always practical or realistic

Everyone’s talking about the new Louis Vuitton exhibition in London.
Here’s what you need to know. The exhibition, Series 3, is set near the famous Somerset House overlooking the Thames and will span three floors and thirteen rooms, providing an intimate glimpse into Vuitton’s AW15 collection. It’s what they’re calling an “interactive immersion,” combining projected footage of the collection with exclusive insights into the house’s creative process.
With easy access to shows and collections almost instantly available online, it seems that fashion houses are trying to distinguish their events from one another — putting together unforgettable experiences like this one. Nicolas Ghesquière, Vuitton’s artistic director of women’s collections, explained that more is required to “feel the ambience and share the intense creativity, energy and emotion around one show.” There is a definite absence of tangible participation in the digital age, so Vuitton’s exhibition is an exciting step in a new direction, while also allowing everyone to feel the intimacy of a collection being designed…

Papercut Ketubah (marriage certificate)

babka (jewish sweet bread)

This babka is worth the calories . You want (and will) eat every crumb. The babka is made with cultured butter from France, and then a mixture of Nutella and Belgian dark-chocolate chips. This sounds amazing, right? But then it is topped off with sugar syrup that gives it a rich, crisp crust with a moist, soft inside.  The babka lasts several days, and tastes good defrosted (so if you stock up like me and want to hoard them, they still taste good!)... and if are ever in Tel Aviv.....this is the place Lehamim Bakery
