Shabbat shalom and a wonderful weekend everyone.

Ah, the bread that many Jewish families will be breaking together for their shabbat meal 

Did you say Sh’ma today?

Laure Heriard Dubreuil is a fashion businesswoman with an artistic soul. In college she studied economics at the Paris Dauphine University and went to Shanghai to learn Mandarin before eventually moving on to the Fashion Institute of Technology for a merchandising degree. From there the Parisian bore Dubreuil gained priceless in house experience working first in the merchandising department at Balenciaga during the Nicholas Ghesquière years and then at Yves Saint Laurent while Stefano Pilati was in power.

Here eclectic career path ended up being the perfect training ground for Dubreuil to launch the multi brand luxury stores The Webster in Miami and at Bal Harbour Shops. The CEO’s cultivated luxury taste, which mixes tent pole fashion brands with up and coming designers, has made The Webster stores among the most influential fashion shops.

I don't know how the future generation will evolve and grow, how the film industry will change in the coming years, but I pray for a renaissance. I hope to one day go to the theater and find myself so moved by what I see that I start applauding as the credits roll. Maybe I can clap myself back to life like Tinker Bell. Maybe we all can. While celebrity is a killer, it also serves a purpose. Our film and our stars didn't just give us something to look up to or aspire to, but they taught us to relate-- to look outside ourselves and find the beauty in others. I was not alive when Marilyn was. But I still miss her. And I'm angry that she's gone because, in some ways, I feel that the things that killed her are the very things currently controlling us. Excess. Politics. Desperation. Corruption. Abuse. 

Everyday is Holocaust Remembrance Day!

Bruna a toujours tout bon avec le vintage… elle sait trouver des pièces qui ont été portées et aimées par d’autres et les mixer avec des créations contemporaines. Le rendu est toujours original et évident… En la voyant, on se demande pourquoi on n’y a pas pensé. Il y a cette facilité à rendre n’importe quelle tenue unique, même si pour cette sculpturale beauté brésilienne, ce n’est pas difficile…


It being mid-August, it was only a matter of time before the cover of Vogue's much-anticipated September issue leaked to the masses. 

The confirmed cover features the 33-year-old megastar wearing Marc Jacobs, looking as ***Flawless as ever and posing up against a chair with wet tousled hair — a runway trend that's made its way to the covers of several other September issues as well. According to an Instagram post from Jacobs, no designer has been featured on two Vogue covers in a row — until now

You have to give it to Donald Trump he does not lack confidence not that 
I agree about his looks(smiles)

His Quote about himself.
Of course it’s very hard for them to attack me on looks, because I’m so good looking. But I was attacked very viciously by those women. And frankly, again, we get back to the words political correctness. 

Si tienes más de cuarenta seguro que te acuerdas de aquellos tiempos

Che come piace pensare a me quello che manca ad alcune persone per essere felici è solo la leggerezza. Di animo, di parola e di azione.
(E’ venerdì, ma questo  è solo un dettaglio)

"   In character, in manners, in style, in all things, the supreme excellence is simplicity.   " 

I don’t care what anyone says, brilliance is sexy. Intelligence is sexy. Maturity is sexy. Having a mentality stimulating conversation is sexy. Have a great body is good, being fit is good, health is important. Charm is nice. But intelligence, my G-d, intelligence is absolutely sexy.

Place Vendome, Is There Anywhere More Romantic?

Place Vendôme, is there anywhere more romantic?
No, I don’t think so.
Place Vendôme in the 1st arrondissement of Paris is about as beautiful, as glamorous and as elegant as it gets.

Maison Hermès 

Maison denotes a store that sells all the Hermès métiers ranging from fashion

to home furnishings to beauty (there are such five stores in the world)
New York, Shanghai, Paris, Tokyo and Seoul.

I love Shatoosh specially when you have specially made Brioni dress jackets with it....
so soft....soft soft

dozens of the ultra-thin ultra-rich, including the late Nan Kempner, Christie Brinkley, and Beth Rudin De Woody,love shahtoosh 

“I resisted buying a shahtoosh forever,” says a Park Avenue hostess.“Twenty-eight hundred for a scarf—no way. Then one day last year I was in London, and I was taken to the flat of a countess on one of the best squares in Mayfair. I broke down and bought my first shahtoosh. And let me tell you, once you own one shahtoosh, you want more and more and more. They’re so light that you don’t feel them hanging around your neck, and they drape in this special way that is extremely luxe.”

" I stepped into the book shop and breathed in that perfume of paper and magic that strangely no one had ever thought of bottling. "

Israel is known for a lot of things--historic sites, beautiful landscapes, innovative technology...and of course, some stunningly beautiful women. 

Turner Classic Movies had an Ann Margaret Marathon and this is one of my favorite films

of all time.....and this are three of my favorite scenes from the movie Bye Bye Birdie....

 Ulyana Sergeenko is the crowned Russian queen of fashionable ladies and the most high-profile figure of the so called Russian Fashion Pack, Russian Mafia or the Czarinas  (the core members of which are: Miroslava Duma, the daughter of a Russian senator and editor of a fashion and style site - Buro24/7; Vika Gazinskaya, a fashion designer known most for her numerous geometric hairstyles and Elena Perminova, a model and the wife of Alexander Lebedev, a former spy for the K.G.B. that is now a banking magnate and owner of The Independent and The Evening Standard of London newspapers - more on them later).

Lady Lee Pheungboonpra, a wealthy Asian socialite from Thailand. Her husband's a steel manufacturing magnate. The ladies here have nicknamed her ABL, for Astro Boy Lady. Her outfits are always perfection. 

a little take on Japan-日本,

What do Japanese call their country?
Either Nippon or Nihon. Both are valid ways to pronounce 日本, characters which mean “origin of the sun.”


Would you buy a face-lift from a model whose face never met a scalpel?

The larger breasts became the norm around the turn of the century, and it shows no signs of deflating. Radical rack augmentation is now ubiquitous, and to heck with the consequences. So what if you knock yourself unconscious while running to catch the bus? So what if you can’t fit into any trendy clothes because your waist is a zero but your breasts are the size and weight of cantaloupes? It’s worth it to be the focus of male attention. Right?

Could small breasts make a comeback?

How to Spot Fake Breasts (Because I Know You've Wondered)

No, you'll probably never be called to testify about the contents of that bikini top. But sometimes, and especially on the beach in the summer, you just can't help but wonder: are they or aren't they?

BorderlineUnless they're sitting in one hell of a push-up bra, natural breasts don't have a defined, 360-degree border around the edges. When looking at the right breast, it should only have a border from about four o'clock to eight o'clock.
GapOversize implants can create a wide, bony gap between breasts. "Many surgeons mistakenly put in bigger implants to mask the gap, and it makes it look worse," Teitelbaum explains.
Fall lineWhen a woman lies on her back, her natural breasts fall slightly to either side. Very large implants, on the other hand, stick up straight.
Side line: When viewed from the side, natural breasts tend to have more volume in their lower half (you can thank gravity for that). Fake breasts often look as full on top as on the bottom.
Pointers: Most nipples point straight ahead or slightly up—but if an implant is too big, it could make the nipples tip downward

some of the best, some of the chic and some of the beautiful in the world!!!!

Body Language: Do You Mean What You Say?

The right body language is hard to master.

We can say things we do not mean and it is not always by speaking out of turn.
Being aware of our body language makes all the difference.
I know we "do not" judge by appearance but in reality we often do. We might forget to smile, be caught unawares but it does not mean we are unhappy. How often we cross our arms out of habit and can appear forbidding? We are not, we are a way of feeling protected and comfortable. This kind of body language gives the wrong impression and sends unintentional messages of negativity. None of us want that.
Couples have their own dance, their own body language that makes them a team. Often the body language is an indicator of how together they really are.

Have American men always been fascinated by Russian women?
Maybe its a legacy from the cold war, the forbidden fantasy of "sleeping with the enemy"?
Maybe its the impression Russian women make on American media as Victoria's Secret Angels and James Bond girls?

The street signs of Israel are filled with the Jewish people’s fascinating history. 

Israeli model Bar Refaeli. 
The Hebrew word bar (pronounced just like the place where everybody knows your name, except with a trilled “r” sound at the end) can mean “open field” or “prairie” (as in pirhei bar, or wildflowers) as well as “pure” or “clean.”

Bar is also the Aramaic version of the Hebrew ben, meaning “son” or “son of,” and there are many phrases involving bar in the sense of being capable of, fit for, or having a certain quality, in which Refaeli’s first name essentially functions as the suffix “-able” does in English.
This is where bar mitzvah comes in, meaning someone who has come of age in the sense of becoming responsible for performing the commandments. Another bar phrase is bar kayma, meaning “sustainable.” This is also the name of an actual bar – a cooperative vegan restaurant and bar in south Tel Aviv, to be precise.

The native name of Israel is Yisrae'el
