Ah! Back from beautiful London, back from my first ever conference, back from giving my first presentation about my very own research. I was nervous beforehand, but also very excited. It all went splendidly well, and in the end all of my worries about professional dressing proved unnecessary since all the other attendees dressed casually. Most people wore t-shirts, shorts, sneakers, flipflops, anything really. So next time I'm just going as me.

Returning home from three whole days in a strictly professional mode makes dressing comfortably and funky feel so very freeing. Letting go of the facade and slipping into my own skin again. And I love how this outfit came together: the shorts are old and I haven't worn them in ages, but I totally rediscovered them. They look so cool with the kimono, which is a new addition - another hit from Oasap, silky, vibrant and fully lined. Great quality.

Did you notice my new name necklace? I won it in Eline's giveaway, and I've been wearing it constantly since it arrived. Another piece of signature jewelry to go with my rings.

This is the font I ended up choosing, and I have no regrets. I love how the letters are very fine, and how the elegant font almost makes the name abstract unless you really zoom in on it. It arrived within a week of ordering all the way from Israel, so I can't recommend the service enough.

Anyway, I'm back, rich with experience! Have you done something challenging yet enriching recently?
