Happy Birthday to Me!

We spent the afternoon yesterday enjoying a picnic in the woods for Andrea's birthday. Bubbles were obviously necessary

It was a pretty awesome day all around. The picnic was fun and afterwards we stopped by the Jerusalem museum to see Ron Arad's 720* exhibit, which was equally awesome.

All in all, it was a pretty magical day. Particularly when you consider that I spent the whole day trying to forget WHICH birthday this year was. Well, we all get older on the outside. It's what's on the inside that counts, right?

Dashing Designer Portrait

We wanted to share a different kind of design with you this time

Andrea's been getting back into painting again (after a VERY long break) and she made this beautiful portrait of us!

For the curious, it's a combination of inks & acrylics.

Not too shabby eh?

We made this new romantic and bright colored necklace from lace and ribbon. We hand-painted the lace and secured it down and it closes in the back with ribbon. Isn't it adorable?

Green and Jasmine tea blend

We recently discovered Jasmine tea, so we decided to create our own blend together with fresh green tea.

Besides being a tasty refreshing beverage, there's some great health benefits too:

- Green tea apparently helps regulate glucose levels slowing the rise of blood sugar after eating. This can prevent high insulin spikes and resulting fat storage.
- Green tea reduces bad cholesterol in the blood and improves the ratio of good cholesterol to bad cholesterol.
- Green tea can apparently also help with wrinkles and the signs of aging, This is because of their antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activities. Both animal and human studies have demonstrated that green tea applied topically can reduce sun damage.
- Studies suggests that the chemical antioxidant “catechin” in tea can destroy bacteria and viruses that cause throat infections, dental caries and other dental conditions
- Jasmine helps to improve digestion, eliminate toxins and weight loss

Still - we drink it because it's tasty.
