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.

We le...

Harmoniously uniting the four elements of earth, water, fire and air, the spa expertly provides balance and rejuvenation to the mind, body and soul. The first thing that struck me was the calming interiors. Wood flooring and window panels, stone surfaces and pebble rocks, neutral tones and soft lighting, scente...
