We hope everyone had an inspiring Shabbat, and wish you all successful week ahead.

Are you seeing what I am seeing? Trends come and go, but style is eternal. Grace Kelly and Sheikha Mozah in straw hats with square crown and black turbans with sunglasses. Classic and chic.

"A Diós Le Pido"

padre me recuerde a Dios le pido 

Hollywood star Natalie Portman’s new film based on Amos Oz’s “Tales of Love and Darkness,” will be released this October. The film is a full length Hebrew language film. Can’t wait to see the talented Natalie Portman in her native tongue, Hebrew!


Without a doubt, Gisele Bündchen  has been -- and still is -- the biggest name in modeling. An industry mainstay since she first walked the runway for Alexander McQueen, Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana, Gisele Bündchen has single-handedly ushered in a new modeling trend of emphasizing sexy over skinnyand now stands as the highest-paid and most sought-after face in the fashion industry. A well-recognized favorite with everyone from Victoria's Secret to Apple, Gisele has achieved a level of fame that every model seeks, but only a handful ever achieve.

In 1890 in Russia, Vasily Petrovich Zvyozdochkin, a wood carver, and Sergey Vasilyevich Malyutin, a painter, came up with the very first matryoshka, a set of nesting dolls in colorful folk dress designed to start tiny and end up big. And in my opinion  30-year-old Miroslava Duma—or Mira as she is known to her friends. You can say that it’s easy to feel you’ve encountered a latter-day, living matryoshka. Duma may stand just a fraction over five feet in her size XS Wolford stocking soles, yet her towering online presence has made her virtually larger than life. 

Black clothes send me...I love bows on women..freckles too....Tall Tall Palm Trees fascinate me. And Princess Sofia is gorgeous ♡, and your argument is invalid.

And while on the subject of Puerto Rico, la Isla del Encanto......I really like some of their sayings....here are a few that I like so much:

Voy a mi (when you believe in yourself)

Voy a ti (when you believe in someone else)

pongo mis manos en el fuego por esa persona (when you really believe in someone, you literally
say "I would put my hands on the fire for that person) "

my recent one was a bit more hi-tech than this(smiles)

Thread lift

This  surgery technique has come a long way since the days of facelifts that left  subjects looking as if they had been caught in a wind tunnel. This procedure,  available to cosmetic surgeons leave patients looking younger and refreshed, but not unnaturally lifted and tightened.

So far I am pleased with the results...natural as I wanted...having to wear dard dark
sunglasses for a few days is not hard since i wear them all the time.....
now that Dr Steven M Hoefflin is retired....the new closest to his Michelangelo
touch is Dr Steven Teitelbaum who practices his trade in Santa Monica, California

His motto is to avoid the Surgical Look

Dr. Teitelbaum is renown for creating beautiful, natural results that do not look, fake, pulled, obvious, or “done.” His artistic taste and technique will give you outstanding results without telltale signs of plastic surgery.

In Greek, whose color lexicon did not stabilize for many centuries, the words most commonly used for blue are glaukos and kyaneos.
I like Klein Blue and here are some pics of friends and acquaintances that wear it quite well:

Elena Perminova
Girlfriend to Russian billionaire (and ex-KGB spy) Elena is a model,  an occasional economics student at Moscow University, mother, convicted drug dealer and street style favorite – all at the age of 26. Unconventional? Perhaps. Stylish? You bet your bottom dollar!


Claire is the granddaughter of the creator of a French cosmetics company specializing in skincare products and fragrances.

What is signature style? Is it something we grow in to… or is it a look that has always been ours?
Style and signature style aren’t one and the same, in my mind at least… Style encompasses every facet of our lives and can manifest itself in both tangible and intangible expressions… Signature style, the concept I am thinking about…. is the way we appear, the way we dress ourselves… our presentation to the rest of the world…

a little take on Japan-日本,

Watashi wa anata o aishite
"i love you" in Japanese
Do the Japanese say "I love you"? It's an interesting question that touches on cultural issues as well as linguistic. There are several ways to express the concept of love in Japanese, with the most casual being 好きです suki desu("I like you") or 大好きです dai-suki desu ("I 'big-like' you"), both of which imply romantic love when used with a person as the object; or the phrase 愛してる ai shiteruwhich specifically means "I love you." As a general rule, Japanese couples verbally express love for each other a lot less than is done in the West. Part of this is just the culture -- strong feelings like love are not displayed openly since (I've been told) saying a thing over and over again can rob it of its real meaning. Instead, Japanese couples in love rely on a concept baffling to foreigners called 無言了解 mugon ryoukai, or "wordless communication," a kind of telepathic text-messaging that enables an idea to be perfectly understood by both parties even though it's never stated overtly. The concept of love can seem quite abstract in Japanese, and there are multiple Japanese words for the term. The word 恋 koi usually describes romantic love, while 愛 ai is a higher kind of love that is used for family or anyone who's very dear to you, or the steady, slow-burning love of marriage. These two words are combined into a compound word to make a general word for love that marries both sides, which is 恋愛 ren'ai


The nose sits in the middle of a face, so there’s not much room for error: One millimeter can make the difference between an elegant proboscis and one that is porcine. A member of The Miami Institute team, Dr. Robert Simons has spent 40 years refining noses while maintaining each patient’s uniqueness. “Miami is very international, and there is more of an appreciation for ethnicity and individuality,” he notes.

Technique: Simons is a minimalist; he doesn’t believe in excising tissue, preferring to reposition it and strengthen a profile. “The cute, little nose is an old concept,” he says. He is not a fan of the popular open rhinoplasty; his incision is made inside the nose so there is no chance of scarring.

The facelift is the quintessential procedure in facial plastic surgery. It is the ultimate in surgical rejuvenation for a more youthful face. The true facelift addresses the lower two-thirds of the face. From a medical point of view, a facelift refers to lifting the cheeks, jowls and under the neck, which is why some doctors and patients actually prefer to call this a "cheek-neck lift." Patients and doctors sometimes expand this description of facial rejuvenation to include a browlift referring to it as a "Complete Facelift."

The September issue of WSJ. Magazine is on newsstands and it’s got some super fashion stories. This is one of my favorite images—besides model Sam Rollinson’s winning smile, I love the length of the trousers.
I have mentioned in this blog that I totally believe in the concept of fit or fat...a regimen that I follow with diligence...two hour daily walks....I find that it totally tones my body, it maintains slim like, no muscles....the clothes by Italian and French designers are for this type of body.....I have friends and acquaintances that believe in other methods.....here are some of them in action............

The three wise monkeys (Japanesesan'en or sanzaru, or sanbiki no saru, literally "three monkeys"), sometimes called the three mystic apes, are a pictorial maxim. Together they embody the proverbial principle to "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil". The three monkeys are Mizaru, covering his eyes, who sees no evil; Kikazaru, covering his ears, who hears no evil; and Iwazaru, covering his mouth, who speaks no evil.

To escape the summer heat, Israelis love to dip into the canyon. And by that, we mean the mega shopping mall.

An ancient Latin saying goes, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do." So, when you're in Arizona, you can visit the Grand Canyon -- and when you're in Israel you can act like an average Israeli and spend your leisure time in a kanyon (can-YOHN).

Popes are chosen by men.
Kohanim were chosen by G-d.
It is time for the Catholic Church to immediately relinquish all Jewish artifacts that they hold in the Vatican including our Holy Temple vessels.
