B”H Hello everyone! Last week was back to school week around here. My kids went back to school, and I started teaching again! We all had a great few days and I’m looking forward to a great school year. ¡Hola a todas! La semana pasada comenzamos las clases por estos lados. Mis chicos regresaron a la escuela y yo comencé a enseñar de nuevo. Tanto ellos como yo tuvimos buenos días de regreso a la
B”H As we all now realize the High Holidays are approaching. Thus, I wanted to share with you one of my most coveted recipes and one that I usually serve during these super hot summer Shabbatot (105 degrees last Shabbat!!!) and during Sukkot lunch (as Sukkkot time is usually still quite hot in Houston!). This Cold Meat recipe will be a beautiful and delicious addition to any Shabbat or Yom Tov lunch
B”H Good morning and Shavua Tov! You might have seen on Facebook that last week I was over at Chai & Home along with four other Jewish lifestyle bloggers. We each shared our best tip on “High Holiday success,” (defined to us, the interviewees, as experiencing the Holidays with style and joy). Thank you Dena for inviting me to participate and for getting me to think about this. If you haven’t
B”H If you’re here from Little Green Notebook, welcome, and I hope you stay for a while. It’s a lot of fun here ;-). If you missed my announcement on Facebook, Little Green Notebook mentioned my DIY Faux Marble tutorial as her inspiration for her own faux marble top creation. Thank You, Jenny! And if you missed that post, you can find it here. Revisiting that DIY post, reminded me of
B”H Hi and welcome to another episode of Wednesday Wink. Today’s Wink is such a special treat. If you’ve ever wondered whether your actions have an impact, hold on to your seats, because today’s Wink is guaranteed to inspire you and get you off your seats to go do more of whatever good thing you’re already doing! Thank you to reader and friend Diani for sharing her family’s beautiful story with us.
B”H I got such nice feedback last time I posted an “unedited” design blog post. Some of you said, “it’s like hearing my brain talk” and “it’s the raw, unedited you”. Well yes, it is! And truthfully, just like working on ourselves is a process (and we talk plenty about this here), so is designing a home. Getting hung up on achieving perfection is a futile and somewhat self-defeating exercise.
B”H Hello! Welcome to another episode of Wednesday Wink- JewishLatinPrincess’ series on Hashgacha Pratit (Divine Providence). You can find previous Wednesday Winks in the Soul Talk section of JLP. ¡Hola amigas! Bienvenidas a otro episodio de Guiñada divina – la serie de Hashgajá Pratit (Providencia Divina) en JewishLatinPrincess. En la sección de Soul Talk encontraran todos los episodios previos de Guiñada divina. Today’s Wink comes from reader and dear friend Alex. It
B”H Shavua Tov, everyone! Did you realize that we’ll be celebrating the New Year in just three months!? You might remember my calendar rant dilema from this post. I am still faithful to my calendar/agenda that I worked so hard to “customize” then. I have it with me all the time. But that might change very soon… ¡Shavua Tov, amigas! ¿¡Ya se dieron cuenta de que en sólo tres meses vamos
B”H Chodesh Tov, beautiful ladies! Today is the first day of the month of Av– the month in which our precious Beit Hamikdash (Temple) was destroyed. Although we have been in a state of mourning since the 17 of Tamuz, we intensify the mourning starting today, until the 9th of Av– the day when the Temple’s destruction and many other tragedies occurred to the Jewish people. ¡Chodesh Tov, lindas chicas!
B”H If you have DIY’ed in your lifetime, you know that part of the beauty of DIYing (has that already been accepted as an official word?) is that usually there’s very little to loose and very much to gain- if not in great results, then in gained experience, patience, perseverance, creativity, courage, humility… (sounds like parenting, right?) Now, when a DIY is a success…oh that feeling! Today I’m showing you my
B”H Congratulations, the winner of the Dainty Jewell’s Givaway is Golda Huthchinson! Golda, check your inbox for an email from me. :-) This week I had a thought about prayer. On Tueday afternoon, I was sitting by the pool talking to an old friend. She was asking about my son’s camp. I told her that we can email him, or send snail mail, but we’re not allowed to call him,
B”H It’s been a while since I posted a Wednesday Wink. Thank you to all of you who have recently called and written with new Wednesday Winks for me to post. I truly appreciate hearing the amazing stories and I will be posting them throughout the summer. If you are new to Wednesday Wink and/or to JewishLatinPrincess, welcome! You can find all the previous episodes of Wednesday Wink- JewishLatinPrincess’ series on
B”H Hello every one! Last week I sent my oldest off to sleep away camp for four weeks. This is a first for me! I feel like I’ve entered another stage in motherhood and according to my husband I have now suddenly become a “worrier.” Well, not only is my son away for the first time, and I have not heard from him (he’s only allowed to call twice in a
B”H This week we read Parashat Korach, about Korach and his rebellion against Moshe and Aaron. Korach, of priestly descent himself, claimed that the entire Jewish nation is holy and can elevate the material world without the need for a Moshe or an Aaron to guide us. We can all serve H” the same way, he claimed! Esta semana leemos Parashat Koraj, sobre Koraj y su rebelión en contra de Moshé
B”H I get a lot of questions and comments about dressing modest and stylish – some feel more challenged, some need ideas, some don’t like the idea, some feel conflicted, some love the idea… the whole gamut. The truth is that regardless of where you’re holding on modest attire, dressing according to Jewish Law does not mean compromising in style, as long as style conveys the refinement and elegance with which
B”H Shavua Tov, everyone! One of my favorite things of summer is the morning light and the quiet that comes with it. Summer around here means tired kids (from swimming the day before) roll out of bed so much later ;-). One morning last week, as I walked past my dining room, the house was still quiet, and the most beautiful light was coming in through the windows. I ran to get my
B”H I’m a reader, big time. Except, time is the one thing I have very little of. Long gone are the days when I could lay in bed to unwind with a book. But, here and there I’ll make an exception and go back to treating myself to a good book. The long, and more relaxed summer days are perfect for reading a few good books. Who says the kids should be
B”H Hello everyone! I’m headed to Guatemala City on Thursday to a Ladies’ Shabbaton at a Spa Resort- how nice does that sound!? I think after I finish giving my four talks down there, I’ll be ready to stay extra time at the Spa Resort ;-) Just kidding! I am super thrilled and beyond excited to meet new ladies and make new friends. ¡Hola amigas! El jueves salgo para Ciudad de Guatemala para
B”H Have I got a treat for you today! JLP Profiles must be my favorite part of JewishLatinPrincess. I really get to meet such interesting ladies with so much to enrich our lives. Today, we have with us Brazilian artist Deborah Rolnik Raichman whose art is not just beautiful, but full of meaning and purpose. I couldn’t have been more inspired. Let’s meet Deborah. What is your goal as an artist? My goal
