Winning, Dancing and Partying – Living The Good Life :)

Wasssssap maniacs?!
Finally I have some spare time to write here, after two tests and a crazy two weeks!
So the first thing I wanna tell you guys is that I entered a filmmaking contest with my Vegan Twilight Parody…
I won a scholarship for filmmaking studies in BUDAPEST!
Isn’t that crazy?!
I’m still shocked..But I still haven’t decided whether I’m gonna use is it and move to Budapest or not…
I still have to consider what to do about my last year in my university studies and my life in general.. besides, Budapest is a cold place! but it could be such a great opportunity for me and I would be so happy to take a break from my ordinary life and move to a new country, new language, new people, new academy, to learn new things and be outside of Israel for a bit.
and another thing – The Twilight Saga Vegan Parody has reached more that 12,000 views and it got some really good reviews on Israeli sites and also in twilight fansite!
check them out!
If you still haven’t watched the parody, what are you waiting for?!
On a different note, I don’t know if you know this, but 1 of my 2 eternal hobbies is dancing [along with tanning in the sun] and I went clubbing last week with a new friend I met who just moved to Israel from the Czech Republic, and my friend Gali, who acted in the parody.
It was sooooo gooood to finally get out of the house after studying my ass off for those two exams.


This Thursday we all went to Tel Aviv to celebrate Eyal Degabli’s birthday!
Eyal is one of my best friends and he also acted in Vegan Style and as Jasper in the Vegan Twilight.
I wanna wish you many many more happy years to come, and whatever you do, I hope you’re happy! 🙂
We ate vegan pizza at a vegan restaurant [at kobi’s restaurant, bella’s dad in the parody], and ate some vegan cakes at another vegan reastaurant, then we went for a drink in a metal pub.

Makeup Photoshoots And Japanese Calligraphy!

Sup maniacs? 🙂 

As you all know [caz you obviously read my hard worked ‘about’ tab above], I’m a university student, and im pleased to announce that….


This is the last week of the first semester in my second year in the university, and in 4 more exams, I cant say I finished half a degree!

I’m so eager to finish my studies! I’m just so tired from it and I seriously lack the energy to go through with it.
But anyway, this week we’re having a Japanese calligraphy workshop [I’m majoring in Asian studies], and it’s my second time participating in it.
In the workshop we carve the calligraphy in wood [kokuji shodou], it’s a very unique calligraphy technique, and this year I’m carving the character for “fire”.
Today we just wrote it on paper and in the next days we’ll carve it on wood. In the next post I’ll show you my progress 🙂



Last year’s workshop, I carved a much more complicated character, “consideration”, in order to convey the need for consideration towards animals. What’s funny is that my boyfriend [not at that time] Michael carved an “animal” character, which is kinda complementary 🙂

So yesterday I made a vegan lunch for me and my Michael. i made Quinoa, Asian green beans with sesame seeds and Korean style tofu [dubu jorim]…it was delicious! OMNOMNOM!

Oh and another thing, a vegan friend of mine who studies makeup, wants me to model for her! So this week we made some trial photoshoots… And I got her to curl my hair!
I’ll upload more pics on the next post!

Things are getting more solid with The Twilight Saga Parody and it’ll be on my channel in the following days…
I’m sooooo excited!
I can’t wait for when my hard work will be out there on YouTube 🙂
And apparently I’m not the only one! Here are some Twilight fans who are excited about my upcoming parody!

Stay tuned for the next post…there’s gonna be some sexy photos 🙂
And don’t forget to subscribe to my channel to be the first ones to watch The Twilight Saga Parody!
