YOGA IN THE CITY



Back in March I was inspired to blog about my yoga practice after finally doing the crow pose. Since than, I never stop challenging myself to learn new variations.

I remember when I took my first yoga class and saw yogies doing advanced poses, I thought that there is no way I can do it, it looked impossible. 
But like almost everything in life everything is possible. Its all about making the commitment and believing in yourself.

I have been practicing almost 4 years, mostly at Core Power Yoga and supplementing with cardio and weights.

Besides the greatest satisfaction mental and physical, the strengths I gained is becoming pretty handy in life especially being a mom to my 3.5 year old energizer.



















I hope you enjoy and get inspired by my Yoga and the City photo shoot that was taken in my home city, Chicago.

Thank you to one of my favorite yoga instructors, Linnea  Boulger at Core Power yoga who helped me to achieve these crazy goals.

Namaste!

BOWLING WITH CHICAGO BEARS


Thanks to my amazing client and dearest friend, Laura Delman, Jason and I had the exciting opportunity to attend a fund raiser event to support a wonderful charity, Prevent Child Abuse America. Laura,who is on the board of this organization, is very involved and active in this important cause.

The event took place at a bowling alley, Pinstripes, in Nortbrook. The unique venue had a large indoor/outdoor area where we enjoyed sharing cocktails and dinner with an electric and generous crowd which included the Chicago Bears. Dinner was followed by a live auction and a chance to bowl with the Bears!
And guess what,  Laura won the first bid and our table got the first pick to choose our Chicago Bear bowling teammate! You can only imagine the amount of adrenaline that was around our table.

 And...Ryan Mundy was the first pick!  He is a remarkable athlete who has been in the league for 7 years. He even played in the Super Bowl! He was extremely nice and super cool to spend time with, we enjoyed sharing pictures of our kids.

 When Laura invited me, I truly had no idea what to expect. I knew we were in for a serious treat and was confident that my husband Jason would be thrilled with the news... even though he is a very loyal Jets fan.

The only question and the most important one was... what should I wear?!
Bowling and dinner, it's kinda sporty I didn't want to feel overdressed but still chic and elegant.
 Harem pants was the perfect to item to start building my look, especially now when skinny trousers are almost over!  I styled them with beautiful cut out tank and topped it with my favorite Persy leather jacket.

EVENT FOR ISRAELI WOMEN IN CHICAGO


Last Sunday I had the huge honor of being the speaker at an exciting event here in Chicago, organized by Israeli House.

About 100 Israeli women came to enjoy creations of eleven local Israeli artists as well as stylish kosher style breakfast coffee and mimosas. In addition, there were beauty, hair and style tips throughout the entire event.

It was extremely exciting to talk about our extraordinary Israeli designers! I also presented trendy pieces and shared some styling tricks including my favorite princess Leah hair updo. And since I am leaving to Israel soon, I treated all attendees with the biggest yet Tel Aviv Couture sample sale and a little gift from me.

 Even though I was a touch nervous and almost showed up on crutches because of an ankle injury I had the day before, I couldn't be happier with the turnout of the event. It was a touching experience to share my love of fashion and Israeli artists with so many beautiful Israeli women in Chicago.

I want to thank Israeli House, Israeli Consulate, and all the amazing artists and wonderful guests that took part in this memorable event. And of course major thank you to my team and Elisabeth Smith and Jonathan Cohon at JHC Production for capturing those memories for us.

THE ART OF LAYERING


Styling is all about mixing and matching your favorite pieces. 
To contrast the casual boyfriend style shorts I added a power blazer to get me through busy casual business downtown day.



 I particularity love layering leather shirt with soft sweats. Because of the texture, its interesting to play with the collar of the shirt. And statement necklaces would be a perfect final touch accessory for  this look.
