Rainbow Valley || Outfit

I think it is probably the best Anne of Green Gables post name so far! Don't you think?
Well, this time I visited a friend who was house-sitting (as well as cat-sitting the family's cat), and we went for a walk and a photoshoot around the city their apartment is plced in, Tel-Aviv.

Did you notice that nice Mobile Library in the middle of the park? I grabbed a Heidi book and took some photos with it ☺

Another thing that happened lately- I quitted my job! I feel so free now, like I have all the time in the world. But along with it, I'm a bit sad, because even though I did not like that job at all, I did met some kindred spirits that I had hard time to leave behind. And the nice avocado orchard I always read books in during lunch breaks! It was the saddest farewell of all...

And now I have a little more the a month of doing whatever I want (read: mathematics! I have to get ready for Uni!!), and then I'll have a new home (but I'll have the old one, too), new setting, and somehow- a new life.

I just hope I'll find time to do everything I used to do before...

A Very Merry Unbirthday to You!

Hey darlings! :)
Well, yesterday (16/08) was my 22nd birthday! Yay!
I wanted to shoot birthday outfit photos for you, but unfortunatly I forgot my lipstick somewhere in the apartment I rented for University AND ate ice-cream before I took the photos.... So you can probably imagine the amount lipstick was left on my lips when I got home (read- none!).

I did not celebrate it yesterday, anyway.  Nadav is on a two week trip to England, Scotland and Ireland, so when he comes back I'll make a birthday praty outfit post!

Instead, I bring to you my Unbirthday post, on my first Unbirthday in the age of 22.
Here are some facts about important (to me) people's life in the age of 22, just to encourage myselt a bit (or maybe just fruastrate myself, as I did not achieve anything half as significant yet).

So... when they were 22, they:

Abert Einstein published his first paper

Anne (from Green Gable Series) moved to Windy Poplars and started working as the principal of Summerside High School

Lord Byron wrote Maid of Athens ere we part, and already had a few poem books published

Audrey Hepburn starred in the Broadway play Gigi and won a Theatre World Award

My mother got married

Lucy Maud Montgomery already had her teaching certificate for two years

Lewis Caroll graduated with a B.A in Mathematics

Mary Costa voiced Aourora in Disney's  Sleeping Beauty

Charles Darwin went on his five-year voyage around the world

Prince Phillip and Prince Naveen were this age when their story happened

Julie Andrews appeared on television as Cinderella in a musical with the same name, and released her debut solo album

Max Planck presented his habilitation thesis

Queen Victoria was already the queen of England for four (!) years

Beethoven began studiyng with Hydn, and gained a reputition as a virtuoso pianist

And here is me, wearing my birthday crown,
 in my newly rented aprtment, next to the apartment's cat, George.
That's how I look when I'm 22!
I'll be a Physics student this year, and I'll tell you what I achieved when I'm done being 22 ☺

P.S: I have just fount out there is a whole book full with those facts called When They Were 22 :O

Four Winds Harbor (+I made a skirt!) || Outfit & Project

Hello to you all! Long time no blog indeed, huh?
Well, I recently was busy thinking about the contents of that blog, what I want it to be, other things I want to post other than just outfits. There are some nice post I came up with for the near future!
Also, I've been studying a lot of math lately- to prepare myself for University (physics won't be easy...).

But, remember when in the last post, I said I'm working on a gathered skirt with pockets? Well, here it is! I did it without any pattern, just some youtube videos and previous knowledge. I added lining, pockets, belt loops and the cutest button.
The skirt is made out of cotton fabric from my local fabric store, and rayon fabric for lining,
Take a closer look;

You probably noticed those gorgeous sandals I'm wearing (how can you not, with their glowing beautiful color!). These are fisherman style shoes , original Meduse jellies. I had a clear pair when I was younger because I was afraid of sea water, and I didn't have to take them of when entering the sea ☺
They are the perfect choice for summer, they magically go with almost any outfit, they are super comfortable, easy to clean... and they are vegan! I think they are a great vegan replacement for the beautiful Saltwater sandals, that are made out of leather, unfotunately.
I got them from Sunjellies, and they have lots of cute colors, so I plan on getting more of them (I wish I had them in EVERY color☺).

blouse: thrifted || skirt: handmade || sandals: Sunjellies || necklace: antique bazaar (originally pilgrim)
lip color: SoftTouch VIP #337 (but I don't recommend, it is very sticky)
