Living Inspired by Sandy B

We all have moments of inspiration. It's what we do with those moments that can be impactful and transformative. Since arriving in Israel, I've been inspired by Israel, its history, its people and its unique vibe. I'm fascinated by Jerusalem, its breathtaking architecture, diverse population and her spiritual nature. It’s our city of gold that has touched my soul, filling me with spiritual fulfillment, excitement and inspiration to cross the threshold of creativity.

Within my blog @Living Inspired, I will be sharing with you what I'm passionate about, beautiful tablescapes, design tips and so much more. Living inspired allows us to live a happy and more fulfilled life. Through my blog, I hope to inspire you too.

Purim is in the air and we eagerly embrace its spirit of glee and excitement.  Weeks before Purim the buzz is already tangible.  The ovens are churning out hamentashen in all flavors from the traditional fillings of apricot, fig and prune, to the sweet filled cinnamon bun, chocolate chip, and rolo all the way to the savory Mediterranean tomato, basil, and cheese and even the unique an...
Asthetics of the Mikveh
10 May 2017

This mitzvah gives married women the opportunity to pause from our hectic lives and reflect on ourselves, our femininity, our indi...
