On loving yourself:
You can’t even begin to love other people if you don’t love yourself. It will always creep up and ruin things.
On holding on to old feelings:
I recently threw out my lifetime collection of journals; mostly because I want to focus on who I am now, and not who I was, but also because I don’t want my kids reading them when I die and thinking bad things about me :)
On Ashkenaz vs Sephardic:
I’ve lived my life as both, and I have to say, Sephardim just do it better.
On the Parsha, Vayeshev and dreams:
This Parsha is full of symbolic dreams. I often wonder if the dreams Joseph had about ruling over his brothers came true because he had a prophetic vision or because he believed in them, and that belief manifested their outcome?
The fastest way to my heart.
On building up self confidence in others:
It is the secret to being magnetic. I wish I knew this when I was younger, and actually cared about being popular.
On designer clothing:
Sometimes wasteful, but sometimes mind-blowingly exceptional.
What are you wearing?:
Red dress- Closet London; Green dress- Atos Lombardini, Italy; Black jacket- Zara; Booties by Christian Louboutin.
