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

Yesterday before Shabbat I took the Jewish Princess to South Coast Plaza to get her
first Birkin....and would you believe it she picked a black one.....


Three words that clink and fit perfectly together

  1. Hermès

If you have $35,000USD than you can do like her Highness....the Sheikha

Sheikha Mozah was wearing  Hermès crocodile vest from Spring Ready-to-wear collection. It might not be the exact same texture, you get the point. Guess who was the designer? Jean Paul Gaultier was the Creative Director

I love director's chairs....and more so in black....

Mori-Chan ~ちゃん has pretty feet..........



J’adore l’idée de porter un look tout simple, monochrome et un accessoire qui explose.
Ça par exemple, c’est une silhouette assez parfaite pour les premiers froids, non ?

I love her bubbly personality and her beautiful ethnic looks, everything looks good on her.

La cantante israelí Noa (Achinoam Nini) ha afirmado hoy que lo que Boicot, Desinversions y Sancios a Israel (BDS) en Valencia le ha hecho al artista estadounidense y judío Matthew Paul Miller, más conocido como Matisyahu, ha sido "puro antisemitismo".

Stop this... be fun to be with instead!

Yesterday at South Coaxt Plaza  we spied a gaggle of young women wearing maxi dresses

Workout plan.

esta musica la hizo famosa Daddy Yankee y me gusta el mix de Omega el Fuerte......
mucho ritmo...bien interpretado y muchos gummy bear implants and muchas cinturas
finas y caderas largas(sonrisas)

Lace is back.

Not that it was ever out.

gummy bear breast implants....and here you can see the perfect marking of the gummy bear


Wow is this beautiful or what....they do not write like these anymore.....Lord Byron is it.....

So when people say that poetry is a luxury, or an option, or for the educated middle classes, or that it shouldn’t be read at school because it is irrelevant, or any of the strange stupid things that are said about poetry and its place in our lives. That is what literature offers – a language powerful enough to say how it is.
It isn’t a hiding place. It is a finding place.

Donald Trump has lots of detractotors....and he is running for President of the United States....
more important he could care less about liberals and political correctness.....you do not get
as rich as him if not shrewd....if not being Furbo....so I am for him.....voy a ti Donald Trump


" And I'm not talking about a $400,000 a year working Wall Street stiff flying first class and being comfortable" I am talking about liquid. Rich enough to have your own jet. Rich enough not to waste time. Fifty, a hundred million dollars, buddy. A player. Or nothing"


 Rich enough to own your own JET....This is still one of my favorites scenes from the Wall Street movie, keep in mind this was filmed in 1985, and his comment  "50 ...100 Million Dollars a player or nothing" translated into today- would be 300 ...350 Million Dollars....and the last quote" Rich enough to have your own Jet, does not mean a little one, rather a BBJ or a GV.....enjoy this clip

“I sent my Soul through the Invisible,
Some letter of that After-life to spell:
And by and by my Soul return'd to me,
And answer'd: 'I Myself am Heav'n and Hell”

watch "The Picture of Dorian Gray" to understand this quote

Hear this or not, as you will. Learn it now, or later -the world has time. Routine, repetition, tedium, monotony, ephemary, inconsequence, abstraction, disorder, boredom, angst, ennui-these are the true hero's enemies, and make no mistake, they are fearsome indeed. For they are real.

The Filipino philosophical expression "Bahala na!" is usually interpreted as a fatalist remark, comparable to "Whatever will be, will be", the expression and its meaning might have been altered throughout the ages. It might have originally been "Bathala na!" ("As G-d wills it!"), but was changed at one point in time. It might also be uttered when the Filipino has exhausted all possible ways to get out of a difficult situation. A modern fuller version of the phrase is "Bahala na ang Diyos!


I have raved about this iTunes app....you can listen to the whole world....all the radio stations....I would like to share a few of my favorite radio stations.

103.4 fréquence K - Nice-France90.7 FM Love Radio-Manila Pilipinas (I love Papa Jack...great DJ on late night, Asian time)
La Mega 97.9-NYC
106.7 Radio Italia
102.0 FM radio Tel Aviv
Classical Piano Music-Tokyo 古典的なピアノの魔法
Kiss FM Rio -Rio de Janeiro
Marina FM-Radio Kuwait
103.5 FM- El Monstruo Musical-Santo Domingo-RD

I have related many times how some Jews are ashamed of being Jewish and change their last names, and it is a pity. And some change it because of the aesthetics ..this comes to mind, the real last name of Ralph Lauren(of Polo fame-) was, is (lipschitz)...according to Mr Lauren's book he changed his name because kids in school would make fun of him. 

Ela é demais Essa música então

When I see an old movie, like from the ’40s or ’50s or ’60s, the people look so calm.They don’t have smart phones, they’re not looking at computer screens, they’re taking their time. They’ll sit in a chair and look so content. I think some day we’ll find our way back to that garden of Eden.
and now

Been there done that......

It’s like you’re combining being dressed up with casual, giving that feminine but relaxed attitude.
As you can see below some friends and acquaintances are wearing mostly Christian Louboutin or Gianvito Rossi.


Elena Perminova’s Top Style Moments

Elena Perminova is the coup de coeur of my style crushes; She’s a Chanel ambassador, Jet & trend setter, mother of three, model, a philanthropist- she’s the first to create an online auction via instagram aptly named S.O.S by Elena Perminova (Which helps to cover the cost of children’s medical expenses) and is married to the media mogul- Alexander Lebedev. What doesn’t Elena have under her repertoire? Today, I thought it would be fun to put up a few of her top style moments, which is never easy to narrow down – some of the images are of her appearing ultra-femme, to her take on a great Gatsby look, and of course there is always a little bit of androgyny to be found.

The adventures of Peepy and Lady Lee..........

Lee Pheungboonpra2

I finally figured out why the forums call her ABL. it stands for AstroBoy Lady! Here she is again, amongst crimson-lipped ladies with her dusky lilac velvet dress and shocking orange matching shoe-and-Hermes Bolide combination. Don't forget the gigantic jewelry and Astroboy.
All hail Lady Lee.

a little take on Japan-日本,

 "A child who can do 挨拶 aisatsu properly will not stray as he goes through life." On its surface aisatsu just means "greeting," such as saying good morning to people you meet every day, though as with many aspects of Japan, things get a little more complex. Because the junior member of a relationship (the 後輩kohai, if in a school or company setting) is supposed to greet the higher-ranking member (先輩 senpai, or bosses/managers) first, this greeting effectively reinforces the relationship and allows the junior group member to show respect to the senior member. Another application of aisatsu is something like "official greetings after a happy event," and every New Years Day the Japanese get into the car and visit with various family members, 



Botox face.....no movement is the giveaway..............

Facce da botox

Botox injections work by paralyzing or weakening certain muscles in the body or by blocking nerves. It is commonly injected into the face to reduce the appearance of lines or wrinkles. 

I do not want to rain on anyone's parade but after you are thirty years of age you should no longer buy the expensive beauty creams that are over the counter ie in fancy stores: Bergdorf, Saks, Barneys just to name a few.....you need to get them from Doctors(plastic surgeons) or Dermatologists who specialise in beauty and are licensed to give you stronger creams and potions.
However this products are very good for over the counter.......

"The Beta-Lift Peel"

Moderate medium-depth peels result in a temporary all-over peeling with deeper pink tone to your skin for several days to a week. These peels are more effective on moderate wrinkles, precancerous skin growths and more problematic pigmentation. Mostly used on the face,medium peels are typically TCA peels.

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

Plus Dorés" - “the most golden

   HH Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al Missned

Sheikha Mozah was wearing Hermès ready to wear collection . Jean Paul Gaultier was the Creative director for this collection, proving he is her favorite designer. She bought several pieces from this collection.

Her Highness visits the traditional souk in Fez, Morocco during her private visit 29/3/13. She was rocking the traditional Moroccan cape/burnoose, still dressing mono-chromatically. She loves to inject the local culture into her outfit.



Goldman Sachs: The Culture of Success


Coco Chanel, Chanel, Paris, Vicki Archer, French Essence

What is the definition of true fashion style?
Style is a quality that we all would like to possess and yet style is not instictive or intrinsic to all.

What makes Coco Chanel so stylish in the image above?
It’s not the pencil skirt and fine cashmere sweater, as lovely as they are.
For me, it is the belt slightly skewed, the necklace and in particular the pair of cuff bracelets.
That’s the edge, that’s the personal flair, the fashion style.
What do you believe defines fashion style? Who are your stylish role models?

I see


There are so many beautiful looks in the Valentino spring show that I decided to just pick my favorite. The sunglasses are certainly a breakout moment for the brand


Les bretelles, c’est pas forcément le truc qui vient tout de suite à l’esprit quand on cherche quelque chose de facile à porter, si ?
LFW SS2015 day 1, London Fashionweek
Pourtant, sur Ji Hye Park, ça a l’air d’être le truc le plus simple, le plus cool, le plus évident qui soit.

I’m not a huge fan of Silicon Valley. It reminds me so much of Hollywood and the movie and TV industry.
In Hollywood every one will talk and listen to you about your project.  But while they are standing there, right in front of you, they are not looking at you. They are looking past you to the next project where they can raise/sell more.  Where they can be a bigger star. There is always a bigger fish. Who ever is standing in front of them is hopefully just the bait.
Silicon Valley has become the exact same thing these days. No one wants to literally start from scratch in a garage and build something. No one wants to bootstrap a business to profitability.  Those are such archaic notions these days.

  1. (of food, or premises in which food is sold, cooked, or eaten) Satisfying the requirements of Jewish law

The Chai symbol is often worn by Jews as a medallion around the neck (along with the Star of David (Magen David), and the Hamsa).
In Hebrew, the related word chaya means "living thing" or "animal", and is derived from the Hebrew word chai (חי), meaning "life".

Jews often give gifts and donations in multiples of 18, which is called "giving chai". Mailings from Jewish charities usually suggest the amounts to give in multiples of chai (18, 36, 54, dollars, etc.) rather than the usual multiples of 25 or 100....my favorite phrase...."`am yisrael chai!" (עַם יִשְרָאֵל חַי, "The people of Israel live!").
