- About materialism. Physical comfort is comfortable only when the surroundings speak for our values, spirit and goals.

- About languages. I am balancing between 3 languages daily - hebrew, english and russian (and got two more in my pocket - japanese and some basic german). Truly mysterious functions.

  Let's just say : I am really having fun with this embroidered diary project I've recently started. About a week ago I've posted the first part, all the pictures immediately go to my Instagram when I finish a page.. but now, by putting them here together into a blog post, they look somehow impressive to me. I became more personal with transforming my thoughts and facts about me into diary pages, I share little comments under each picture on Instagram, and the way my followers react (and actually, just the fact they react) totally warms up my heart. By now, I am inspired to experience myself through this journey (read what I think about inspiration in general). It's pretty challenging to be personal and real for the wide audience, and to explain what you got to say without words. (let me know if you enjoy the series so far)

All the pictures of Embroidered Diary are collected on my Instagram by the tag #stitchesandsketches .

IFB Feature of the Top 5 Sunglasses for Fall post

independent fashion bloggers links round up

That Natural Look

Maybe it had something to do with that post the Man Repeller wrote about not wearing makeup. Maybe it's about the Normcore sensibility of not trying too hard. Maybe it's because everyone is fed up with hyper-photoshopped images in the media. But now? Now that natural look, unretouched has never been more perfect. This week we visit fashion month, with all the trends hitting the streets and the runways, so look into the future, it's returning to the basics.

Happy BeeDay!

  This post is dedicated to those who work hard days and nights in order to create the genius natural cosmetic products, to the bees of Burt's Bees. The company celebrates it's 30th anniversary today and I've created my personal Bee Day message. The very first time I met Burt's Bees natural care products was in Tokyo. I got totally in love with the brand's aesthetics, organic attitude and essential ingredients that (as I found out later) actually work. I bought presents then to all of my family and friends. Beeswax together with oils and shea butter magically treats sensitive skin like mine. Now Burt's Bees products are closer than ever to me, in a wide range of retailers across US, so I had more chances to try them out and already made my favorites. At the moment, I can't imagine my life without the Sensitive Daily Moisturizer and the Original Beeswax Lip Balm. The second one I always have with me, whenever I go. 100% natural, do I need to add more.. Happy BeeDay, Burt's Bees! Bee happy in what you do!

  Few words about my handmade postcard creative process : I got deeply in love with linoleum print technique, from the first carving:) Experimenting is fun, and I am so glad I got myself into this one! I've drawn a sketch and turned it into a hand-carved stamp, that I further placed around a craft paper background. As a second step, I've embroidered the geometric bees hive using a yellow ombre floss. What do you say, my craft loving readers?
