Lovely loyal blog followers, I have some happy and some sad news for you
The sad news is that I have to take an extended blog vacation
(or blogcation as I like to call it)
The happy news is that I am going to Ghana for 3 months.
I have a micro-finance internship in Kumasi.
I will be helping to build small local businesses.
You know how they say give a man a fish and you feed him for a day, teach him how to fish and you feed him for a life time?
Well, it’s sorta like that but with guest houses and dressmakers.
After that I’m going to stay with the local Jewish community and teach Hebrew for a couple of weeks.
Basically I’m very excited to be doing very exciting things.
I will miss you all and your emails and comments.
I think this just goes to show that fashion and life-style blogging is a great way to build a community and that just because I like pretty things doesn’t mean they are the most important things in the world to me.
Because clothes are lovely but people are better.
So thanks people!
See you in 3 months time…
Sometimes I’m super silly.
Like when I walked into my car.
While I was crying (not really) the boy snapped a shot of my injuries.
But it was all made better by catching up with my darling friend visiting from Sydney for hot drinks!
I’d say all’s well that end’s well.
Sorry for being absent.
I was too busy being in love and all.
Very time consuming.
But I did manage to take some photos of my Shabbat outfit this week on Friday afternoon.
Top: Portmans. Skirt: Thrifted in Jerusalem. Belt: Borrowed (permanently) from my brother. Necklace: ebay. Tights: Target. Boots: Wittners.
This is my friend Ellie.
Not only is she a wonderful person but she is also a wonderful photographer.
And a great cook!
We all went away this weekend. It was a wonderful trip to the country for a conference style festival of Jewish learning.
Was great fun.
I even gave a talk!
Except the boys got rained out of their tents.
The smart girls were safe and dry in cabins.
Such smart cookies us girls.
Hope your weekends were as fun as mine was!
The Boy is in town (so I might be a bit blog absent for a bit)
I made him cupcakes.
I know it’s silly but since I’m going to Ghana (more on that later…)
I felt that it would be a good idea to get a responsible practical pair of shoes.
But then again – I can be super indesisive.
I came down to these last two.
The one on the right had a great grip on its sole.
But the one on the left was a nicer colour…
I went with the darker boots because they gave me more coverage and err… they were prettier?
Is that ok - that I chose my ‘responsible’ shoes by which was prettier?!
Well, today I made good on my promise.
He was thrilled!
Today it is both my Dad and my Brother’s birthdays.
That’s right, 21 years ago my Dad got a wonderful birthday present.
My brother went from this
but my Dad is even cuter
He also grew up to be a great Dad/Man/Husband/Person/Soccer player.
Happy Birthday to both of you!
