Mia has been sleeping a lot lately which leaves me time to actually pay attention to the world around me. I'll make this one short and sweet. These are some of the things I have been noticing of late: Sneakers! Still too hot to wear them here, but its almost... Continue reading

Ahh...Tel Aviv winters. Cool, rainy, filled with puddle-strewn sidewalks and wet smears of doggie excrement. I kinda love it. But because baby Mia hates getting into the stroller and outta the house, I barely have time to put on my shoes, let alone look effortlessly cool. These amazing Loeffler Randall... Continue reading

Happy 2012! After a few months of gestational issues and a maternity leave of sorts, I'm back! This year I am determined to make my blog better, more diverse and definitely more fun. Talk about resolutions... And when I saw this T-shirt slogan on Carolines Mode (a terrific blog by... Continue reading

I love how the Man Repeller, Leandra Medine, can turn a phrase. An arm party, my friends, is defined as loading up your wrists with bracelets- heavy, gaudy, elegant- you name it. Just load it. I'll quote the lady herself, as she describes her own "arm parties". She is hilarious:... Continue reading

I'm sorry to be slacking on my posts these days! I have been hard at work organizing my Dieppa Restrepo shoe arrival for Fall, and when I'm not doing that, I'm sitting my large belly down on the sofa. Grunt. I'm very excited to welcome Dieppa Restrepo to Tel Aviv... Continue reading

Ok, so Louis Vuitton recently published it's new ad campaign with Angelina Jolie in Cambodia with her well-loved LV bag. The photograph by Annie Leibovitz is stunning, of course. But it got me to thinking....I suppose my self-analysis is really about how I feel about Louis Vuitton, deep down inside.... Continue reading

I had a few Typepad problems last week while I was blogging...Therefore, some important thoughts were left out of my last week's This Week's Lowdown. So I suppose I can pick up where I left off. I have been watching re-runs of Mad Men and loving it, so when I... Continue reading

For some amazing reason, I feel super-prolific this week! There are almost too many things I want to write about. That's exciting, isn't it?

I had to use it....sorry! Its hot. And getting hotter. Yesterday I spent a blissful afternoon at the pool with the kiddos and some friends and all I could think of today was finding a way to hose myself off that looked somewhat respectable. Or not. Screw respectable. I just... Continue reading

Throughout this pregnancy, things are definitely smelling different to me. I have always had a sensitive nose, but I really love wearing perfume. It makes me feel dressed up, even if I'm in my PJ's, you know? My husband has a very specific idea of how I should smell and... Continue reading

I'm interested in two things this week: Summer Neutrals and Sleep. Both of which we should be able to execute perfectly with a little flair. And no, coffee and neutrals do not mix.

That would be me. While living in Brooklyn I made a habit of stopping in at my favorite haunt, One Girl Cookie, in order to grab a coffee and a vanilla cupcake (or slice of the yummiest cakes imaginable) whenever I could. Since moving to Tel Aviv I have not... Continue reading
