My First Halloween!!!

TRICK OR TREAT?

I’ll take both thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

As most of you already know, I live in Israel. Sadly we don’t celebrate this AWESOME Holiday here.

We celebrate Purim, a Jewish holiday in which we dress in costumes and getting really wasted is a blessing. But Henya Mania doesn’t settle for less and I’ll take both holidays why thank you for asking ๐Ÿ™‚
This year I decided on making my own Halloween party at my place one week before, and go out to all the parties at Halloween itself, that way I can dress in different costumes, and get to decorate my house and make creepy Halloween vegan food!
I was a sugar skull thingy [what is that? can someone please explain this to me in the comments?] and my friend Bat-Chen the makeup artist did my AWESOME makeup, and Alina took my photos. Thanks LOVES!

The rest om the pics are in my fb ๐Ÿ™‚
All in all we had an awesome house party! but now I have to think of my next costume! any ideas?
What’s your costume for Halloween this year? Let me know in the comments!
Have a happy and creepy Halloween little Maniacs! โ™ฅ

April Fools And My Moroccan Vegan Mimuna!

Why hello there my little Maniacs!

So it’s the beggining of April, and that means….APRIL FOOLS!
I just looooove April fools!
This year I uploaded a video to my channel saying, well, just watch it ans see what I said ๐Ÿ™‚

I especially filmed myself with my phone, didn’t edit or nothing so that it’ll look more authentic.
A lot of you noticed that it’s a joke, but a whole lot more of you guys wrote to me such great comments and emails that really warmed my heart.
Cause even if it was done as a joke, everything I said there was true. I really am not happy with how things are going, and the mean comments really get to me sometimes.
My channel and works occupy most of my brain capacity everyday and youtubing has become an enormous part of my life and I would like to receive responses that match my efforts.
That’s why I keep my mail connected to my account so I can see every new comment [even if I don’t always comment back] and every time I’m notified I have a new subscriber it really makes my day.
So thank you my little Maniacs for all of your support and love!
Keep on sharing and liking and commenting!

On to the next one ๐Ÿ™‚
On April first was also a huge holiday for us Jews that came from Morocco, called Mimuna.
It’s a holiday that marks the end of Passover and it has many traditions.
Basically we have guests at our homes and we make a ton of sweets so we can all have a sweet year, and we make a dish named Mufleta, which is made out of fried dough. It must be the yummiest thing ever on exist on planet earth.
I haven’t been to a Mimuna in so long, so I decided to make one in my own flat and invite some friends, and it was the first time I made Mufleta by myself!

That’s all folks!
What did you do on April Fools? 
Let me know in the comments bellow ๐Ÿ™‚
See ya next time
LOVEโ™ฅ

Passover Photoshoots, Updates And New Videos!

Yo wadup Maniacs??

It’s Passover in Israel and you know what that means! oh..you don’t?
It’s a Jewish holiday that marks the outing of the Jewish people from Egypt…blah blah anyway!
We have like a HUGE spring break from university, school, work, and I’m resting my ass off literally now..
I made ton of videos when I stayed in my parent’s house for the holiday dinner and I need to edit all of them, but for now check out my latest video for those of you who hadn’t got the chance to hear me rap ๐Ÿ™‚

And another video I uploaded before this one, of the Israeli clubber types I’ve diagnosed during my years of clubbing here in Israel ๐Ÿ™‚

So since I had a lot of free time last week me and my good friend Lin who is also a blogger, went for a photoshoot in the botanical gardens of my university.
check out her awesome blog here! http://morningtao.wordpress.com/ She has a lot of wisdom to share with the world…
Here are some of the pics she took of me ๐Ÿ™‚

That’s it for now! I’ll be having some new video’s coming up so make sure you subscribe to my YouTube channel to be the first to see them!
Love you  my little Maniacs! โ™ฅโ™ฅ

Purim! Camera! Vday! Oh the excitement…

Wadup Maniacs ๐Ÿ™‚

BIG NEWS!
I bought a new camera!!!!!
Canon 650D rebel t4i ๐Ÿ™‚
It’s about fucking time…Now that I have a legit mic and an awesome camera, wait for a lot more pro videos on my channel ๐Ÿ™‚

So, how was Valentine’s day?
Mine was great!
Me and my boyfriend Michael went out for dinner at a restaurant. it was packed! After that we decided to go play some billiard, which was very not typical for us, but you have to spice up your lives once in a while..
I totally kicked his ass, but that’s not his fault. when I was a kid our family used to have a pool table at home and me and my brothers [mostly me and myself] used to play it. so I had some advantage…

Michael also made me some vegan chocolates that were absolutely amazing and delicious…

Anyway, for those of you who are not Israeli, you can’t imagine the craze that’s going on all over the country.
Why you ask?
Well, it’s PURIM TIME!

Purim is a Jewish holiday we celebrate every year at around this time, where we wear costumes and party till we drop, just like Halloween – but Jewish. we celebrate this holiday to remember that the Jews were saved from a massacre in Persia, and we drink wine and eat crappy sweets, wear costumes and party our asses off.

This is my favorite holiday of all, I mean, who doesn’t love to dress up and be someone else for a while?

BTW, also here, as well as in the US, a lot of the girls take this opportunity to dress like sluts, and yours truly is no different ๐Ÿ™‚

I have so many plans for this year! I’m going to a ton of parties, Zombie Walk and an Anime Convention!
I’m not gonna say what’s my costume for this Purim…Your’e going to have to wait for my next post..
But for now, here are some pics from previous Purim costumes ๐Ÿ™‚
