Oh, yeah, it's my birthday! I'm 23 today, and no, it doesn't feel any different from 22.

Update:
Guys, I don't want to just disappear nor leave you hangin' for a while, so I'm going to say this in form of an announcement:
I'm taking some time off blogging. 

It actually pains me to say this, I'm sad writing this. But I am going through a ton in my personal life just now, and I need to get my own shit together before committing to making each post the best, and doing so consistently a few times a week. I don't know how long I'll be away, but I do promise to make it as short as possible - and that I'll come back strong. I'll try my very best to keep up to date with all of your beautiful blogs (feel free to tweet me your links!). 

Also, I'll still be tweeting and Instagramming - hope we can all connect over there for now. xx

GET THE LOOK: City Cool




Think: it's late afternoon, on a cool summer's day. What could be cooler than a cuffed light moto jacket, a slouchy tee, cropped jeans, nude sandals, topped off with a Chanel bag? No, nothing is cooler. Here's how you can get this look:

4 Things To Do When You Start A New Job

More photos here

So, you know how I've been uber secretive about something... How I kept saying "changes are upon me, but I'll tell you more later...". Yeah, I totally scored a new job. And I'm very nervous. 

I've been working (at my now previous company) for two and a half years. Not a very long time, but definitely long enough for me to feel like change was due. I'm off to be a social media specialist for what seems to be my dream company. Yeah, it's amazing and it's a brilliant next step in my career. I'm very blessed. I'm also very excited. But I'm also SO anxious. 

I haven't been a new employee in a while, so, I am making this list with hope it'll help get my shit together prior to my first day at the new job. Also, I thought this may come in handy for any of you going through the same thing. If you are, also please feel free to share your own tips. 


1. First thing's first - ask. 
Someone great once said "you never know until you ask". Yeah, corny but so true. Even if in your head the question may seem stupid, it's better you ask as you'll avoid future mistakes. This being said, after you ask you should be writing down the answer and you should be learning from the answer. Don't ask the same question more than once (in special cases, no more than twice). I've been on the answering side quite a few times, and when I see the person 1. not taking notes on my answers and 2. asking me again and again, it's just annoying. 


2. Notes are everything. 
An old boss taught me this: take notes on everything, always. During meetings, but also during your own work time. Create to-do lists, and document any issues you come across along the way. This will make you more aware of the smaller but very important things, this will make sure you rarely forget to do something, and it's a great way to manage your time. Your first month is the most crucial time for you to be taking notes - you don't want to miss anything, especially if the person training you will be leaving soon enough. Write down everything from the new programs you're going to use, to the names of your new colleagues and their positions. I can't express the importance of this enough! It'll make you a much better employee in the long run, trust me. 


3. Make friends. 
This is supposed to be the fun part, that's obviously easier said than done. But throughout the stress and the nerves that come with a first day, shake it off (especially during lunch hour) and introduce yourself to everyone. Be very friendly, and get allies (sorry if this is a negative-ish way to call work friends, but it's what they are...) as soon as possible because... they can help you out with the small stuff as well as make your time fly by. 


4. Remember why they hired you. 
You were hired because you obviously know your shit. Your new company wants you because they know (or at least, because they have a really great feeling) that you can achieve great results with and for them. But don't look at this as pressure, look at this as a great way for you to grow. Take everything professionally and with grace, smile a ton. Oh, this really sounds corny (I'm actually rolling my eyes writing this) but it's soooo true. Be the person you were in the interview until you find your place, and then just keep on moving forward. :)

Finally - GOOD LUCK. You can totally do this. xxxx

LOOK OF THE DAY

photographed by Steven Winston
SHIRT: GAP | High Neck Tank Top
NECKLACE: c/o Happiness Boutique | Glam and Glitter Statement Necklace

We took the day off and went to Machane Yehuda market in Jerusalem. I can't believe how long it took for me to get there, as it's the most amazing market! The fruits and veggies are all so fresh and so cheap, and the many food stands are all delicious. Once we arrived, we had coffee on the mind - then we actually ran into a branch of my favorite coffee spot ever (Cafelix! Remember?). Afterwards we searched for the super recommended bakery called Marzipan, hope of the best rougalach ever (pic). Has anyone been to the Machane Yehuda market before? xx
