Idyllwild Winter Getaway

Idyllwild Winter Getaway | TLV Birdie

Last week, when it was still 2016 and snow storm covered mountain areas with white shimmering blanket, we packed our warmest sweaters and hit the road with 2 hours drive to Idyllwild. It was the best family getaway to date:

  • we stayed at a gorgeous A Frame cabin, hidden in the woods
  • we wondered Idyllwild and it’s breathtaking surroundings
  • we chose our drinks at a local coffee shop by their cozy names – “Mountain Lodge” and something else I couldn’t recall
  • we got lucky to witness rare birds and look them up in a ‘Birds Of North America’ book. One pictured below is The Steller’s Jay, we assume
  • we had memorable sled adventures (ripped pants and hysterical laughs included)
  • we lit hanukkah candles by the window for all the forest creatures to see
  • we cooked hot sangria and watched sunset over the frosted lake from the balcony of our cabin
  • we tried to feed mini squirrels who came to our porch (attempts failed)
  • we learned to make fire in a wood burning stove
  • we rest our minds and had a great time together

Styling the greens

Murad Facial

Last week Murad treated me for a facial at Massage Envy spa and it felt like my ‘ME time’ prayers got heard. 1 hour of a thoughtful facial and great ‘skincare chat’ with Lauren, Massage Envy esthetician who took good care of my heat-stressed face. My skin loves Murad products, and I had zero doubts if

Weekend in Portland

My birthday weekend (like it’s a “thing”) we spent in Portland. Just the two of us exploring the city, consuming way too much way too good caffeine, inhaling crisp fresh air and squeezing in some high quality naps at the hotel. As it often happens during travels, at some point I prefer to document the

Replica Perfume | Maison Margiela

Yesterday I sniffed half of the perfume section at Sephora. Quick question right away : why don’t they have coffee beans to ease on the perfume choosing process? Or is it only my local store? Anyways, I wanted to treat myself to a new scent and the Replica line by Maison Martin Margiela caught my
