It’s 1969… hop on for a ride ladies! The one thing I always wish I had and still dream of getting some day is an old vintage car, to be exact I want one of those old thin vans where I can remove the back seats and decorate it with rugs and pillows, then just drive anywhere, maybe park it on the beach or at a pretty park and have a picnic with my family. I guess it wouldn’t be that practical in NY, perhaps if we lived somewhere more exotic like Hawaii then it would make a bit more sense haha.
Back to reality, this car was just parked outside in our neighborhood and some people watched as the weird stranger posed in front of it. I get asked sometimes how do I take photos in the street without embarrassing myself. Well, I used to be very uncomfortable shooting photos outside, I’m kind of a shy person overall and I felt like everyone’s starring at me. It took me some time to feel confident while taking photos outside, when I just started my blog back in Israel, I was extremely self conscious about the way I looked while shooting. I remember every time I saw a person coming our way I’d wait until they’d be gone. Our photo shoots would take twice or triple the amount of time they take today as every few shots I’d stop and wait for people to pass by only to avoid the strange look they gave at me. I really disliked the fact that I cared so much about what people thought of me, especially strangers in the street which I most probably would never see again, so I decided I had to do something about it. It took some time but I started practicing at focusing only on the camera and pretending it’s just me and Pin (my husband and the one behind the lens) and eventually it became so much easier and most importantly enjoyable to shoot our photos, now I just love shooting looks for the blog or just take photos with the kids outside. My tip I would say is just don’t look around if anyone’s watching or steering at you, focus on the person taking your photos and pretend it’s just the two of you. I know it’s easier said than done but that freeing feeling of overcoming a fear is just priceless! It might take some time to get used to doing but I promise you it works. I used to get (and probably still do) so many looks and even giggles while taking photos but I think some people are just ignorant and there’s nothing I can do to change that so I might as well just do my thing and not take it personally. I know as a human my first reaction when I see something different or a scenario I’m not used to seeing is to judge, but I try to train myself to take a step back and be a bit more open minded towards other.

See, all you need to do is color your winter snow days in pink and it makes the crazy low temperatures bearable. Ok not really but this cute pink faux fur coat definitely makes me happy these days. I rarely ever wear pink in any other shade but light or pale pink, I feel like a clown in hot bright pinks, I think it clashes my red hair color. Anyway I should really head to bed right now since it is a few minutes before 11 p.m. and if I go to sleep past this time I can barley function in the morning. My kids are such early birds, we’re talking 6 a.m. early, so it is crucial for me to go to sleep on time and get a good night’s sleep in order to take care of my little cuties so early in the morning. Hope you guys have a great week and thanks so much for stopping by! xx
Welcome to January in NY! We got a nice little snow storm last week which of course means school was canceled and we all got to hang out in our pajamas all day. We basically didn’t leave the house for 2 days besides a quick 5 minute walk I took just to feel the snow. To be honest, I don’t do really well in cold weather, I feel like my brain is frozen and I can’t think straight, every outing is deeply calculated if it is worth to bare the cold or stay home, plus it is to cold to ride my bike so this on it’s own makes me dream of warmer days to come. I grew up living in Israel so naturally these low temperatures are pretty aggressive to my taste, all I want to do is curl up into a ball and hibernate until the end of the winter. The only things that helps me get through these days is looking at it on the short term, just take it day by day without thinking how long the winter will last. I’m not sure how much sense this is making but it sure does help me get through the winter which apparently is only going to get worse. Anyway, setting aside all of my complains, I do think a snowy day is quite the pretty site and after all it isn’t a real New York winter without a few snow storms.
Thanks for stopping by guys! xx,
Who doesn’t love bundling up in cute hats and gloves? Seriously it might be the only thing that will get me through winter this year. New York gets so so cold, even though we are already in January I’m still not ready for it! What I am ready for is flying somewhere warm at least until April.
Here we are on a Sunday outing in NYC, we spent a good hour at Madison Square Park until we could not feel our fingers, then headed to Oculus- it is a train station and mall located right by the memorial world trade center. I loved the architecture which looks like dove wings, it is so different from all the buildings around it.
As I am typing this we are experiencing a snow storm here in NY, school is canceled and we are all hanging out in cozy layers and enjoying the day off. Hope you all stay safe and warm! xx

Hey guys, hope you’re all doing well! We were so excited to wake up to a winter wonderland these past few days, the first thing the kids do in the morning is jump out of bed straight to the window and then shout out “snoooowwww”. It really is beautiful and so peaceful once the snow has fallen down. It is also Hanukkah AKA the coziest holiday of the year, there are few things I love more than cozying up at home, even though there are so many holiday parties and events going on, I feel like on Hanukkah it is even more special to take a step back and enjoy cozy days and create family traditions, surrounded by lots of cushions, warm tea and of course homemade doughnuts. Seeing the kids excitement as we light the menorah and watching them dance to all the Hanukkah songs I used to love as a kid brings so much happiness into our home. Hope you all have a great holiday full of warmth and light! xx

We are enjoying a few last days of nice jacket weather before fall turns into winter and puffy coats are all we can wear. New York gets so so cold, I’m not ready for it! Seriously I’m not sure what will get me through winter this year. Last winter was our first in NY and I was definitely not prepared, I desperately need to invest in a great warm coat.
I love walking around cute neighborhoods, Last Sunday we were in Park Slope, a cute neighborhood in Brooklyn. You’ll find here a lot of moms pushing their strollers and some really cute coffee shops. what I love most about this area is the townhouses, most of the steps to the homes had cute pumpkins and fall decoration.
This lady came out of one of the houses and was arranging the pumpkins on her front steps, I told her how cute the decor was and she said how much she enjoys decorating for every season, she looked so proud of herself. Lets all love what we do as much as this sweet lady loves decorating her front steps! As simple as that. xx
