Bye Bye University Life!

Hello my fellow crazy Maniacs!
My last video is a video response to Marina Shifrin’s I quit dance video!
Though I did say I’m quitting my University, I have to say it was only for the sake of the video.
I contemplated a lot about leaving at the beginning of my second year, and I fucking hate studying and the academy and everything related, but I’m totally staying for my last year.
I usually quit everything I do in life and if something is even slightly not comfortable for me, I leave without looking back, but my degree is going to be the thing I didn’t quit 🙂
But in the video, I danced as if I’m leaving for real, and twerking on the lecturers podium in the biggest class at the university was a blast!

The video was covered on “The Mushroom” viral weekend also http://www.pitria.com/viral-weekend-49
It was also in an Israeli morning show on TV! I’m looking it up right now so I can put it in my press section 🙂

I have so many silly footages from my student days, and I plan on filming some more of my student life this year, so I could make a “I finished my B.A degree” video at the end of it. It’s gonna be epic!
Hope you enjoyed my quitting video, let me know what you think in the comments bellow 🙂
XOXO

BIG In Berlin!

Halo!

Boy did I miss saying that…I finally dropped my vlog from Berlin on my channel!
It took me so long to edit, It was a nightmare! but in the end I love the result and it makes me laugh so hard and brings back all the memories…
Obviously, not everything is up there. when I got to Berlin I thought I was going to vlog every second of it, but in the end I was like “ok Hen, this is awesome. take a picture and vlog it”. As you can see, on the first I was vlogging like crazy but the more I was experiencing , the less need I felt to share it.
And it might sound a little depressing, but that’s what I think about all those social networks, That if we all really enjoyed life and had a ton of experiences everyday, we wouldn’t need facebook and twitter to show our life to other people.
But hey! vlogging is so not related to this equation, and I’m just at the beginning of my vlogging days, so stay tuned, there’s so much more to come!

How To Be Vegan In Berlin

Halo fellow Maniacs!

As you might know from this post ,my twitter, fb and instagram accounts, I was in Berlin for ten days in the last month for an Aktion Sühnezeichen Friedensdienste summer camp.
This was my first actual “abroad” experience. I was in Netherlands for work and I ran the hell away from the company I was working for after 3 days… So that doesn’t count.
Before going to Berlin I was very worried I won’t have anything to eat and I was anxious in general, But also very excited cause people keep talking about how Berlin is such an awesome city for vegans.
In my experience, in Berlin I ate much better than I eat in Israel.

My vegan pizza! 4 different types of cheese! FUCKING DELICIOUS!

First of all let’s talk fruits. most of the fruits were surprisingly delicious for a cold country, and there were fruits I nibbled on constantly, like blueberries or blackberries, that cost like a new Iphone in Israel, so it was my second time eating them in my life! They also have weird huge cucumbers and purple avocados…like..wha??

some kind of berry I’ve never seen before Berlin
Berlin has such beautiful strawberries..I didn’t get to try one
Sadly, I haven’t had much time to check out vegan restaurants 🙁 some of them have very strange opening hours that didn’t go quite well with my schedule. I did get to try the vegan pizzeria Sfizy Veg somewhere in south Berlin. Definitely best thing I ate in Berlin. It was so fucking delicious there’s no words to describe. 
DO NOT MISS IT!

The second place I got to visit is Goodies, which is a restaurant inside the Veganz supermarket – an only vegan supermarket. At the first day we got there I bought so many vegan cheese and Goodies was already closed… We begged and begged to get some vegan cakes, but they were really closed. Instead they gave us their vegan sandwiches leftovers from the day, and is was so good, especially since it was free, and after a long and tiring day. It was really nice of them.
I went there once more on my last day because it was close to the Berlin wall, and this time the experience weren’t as good. the food was ok, not amazing, and they got pissed at me for taking pictures.

Another place we went to was a Vietnamese restaurant which was vegetarian but I’m not that keen on trying new foods and I already ate a vegan yogurt I bought at the store so I only ordered some fresh rolls. mediocre.
From some unknown reason I bought chocolates like crazy. I’m not that fan even, and I still have most of them half eaten in my kitchen. I even bought a raw vegan chocolate from this charity store cause I wanted to flirt with the hot Taiwanese seller, but the chocolate tasted like crap. But I got a nougat chocolate, that was dope!

One thing that surprised me, when I came back to Israel actually, we went to Yad Vashem, a holocaust memorial museum. What i found fascinating are these two paintings I saw there, that try to make the connection between the human holocaust and the animal holocaust. I don’t know why I’m so surprised to see that as so many holocaust survivors are now vegan, maybe It’s because I’m still on the mindset I had 8 years ago when I became vegan and no one knew what it was. now veganism is so common that almost every restaurant in Israel has avegan menu as well and thousands of people come to support animal liberation in huge demos.

The airplane food.. we didn’t order vegan food in advance..
Purple avocados…

That’s it for now, next post will come with my Vlog from Berlin [hey, it took me ages to edit!] and the last photos I’m gonna drop here [The rest on my fb] so i’ll see you there!
QUESTION OF THE DAY – Have you been to Berlin? Where would you like to travel?

DIRTY PICTURE

Hello follow Maniacs!
My latest video is from The Vegan Woman summer 2013 catalog photoshoot!
The amazing Alina Imas was our photographer, Atalia the great was our stylist, Ben the model and make up artist, Dana, Inbal, Ahron and me were the models and Sivan, well Sivan is everything 🙂

It was a great photoshoot! Even though it started so early and after so many sleepless nights.
sadly I had to leave at one point when it was getting to hot and I started feeling dizzy and nauseated :
I got to keep these AWESOME ‘Vegan Gal’ shorts and ‘I Love Vegans’ pink top. I wear them everywhere! last week I wore the shorts for 2 days in a row! Cause not changing clothes is cool!…or something…

What pieces did you like? Check out the catalog here and let me know what you like the most in the comments below 🙂
