5 minutes with Meirav:
1. Do you consider yourself a stylist, personal shopper, influencer or blogger or all of the above?
I consider myself all of the above. I have been fashion blogging for the last 3 years and I work tirelessly to take good photos and build my Instagram and my brand. I have over 4000 followers and I have inspired a lot of girls who follow me.Recently, I began my journey as a personal stylist where I attend and assist
2. Where did you grow up? Tell us a bit about it...
I was born in Jerusalem but we moved to Holon when I was young. I grew up there until I was 27 and then I moved to Rishon Lezion.I have a bachelor's degree in business administration and communication and recently I completed a course at Shenkar on communications and PR in fashion.I am 42, married with 2 children and I always loved fashion but did not have the courage to leave a steady job and to follow my heart until recently
3. What do you love most about your job?
After I finished studying at Shenkar, I worked for about a year and a half at the Ministry of PR at which time I started my fashion blog and during this process I realized it was my destiny. Through my blog and my styling services I love that I can help women feel better about themselves, take them on a journey of experience and learning and make them fall in love with themselves again and stop hiding under their self-doubt.
4. As a successful woman and presence on social media, how do you see your role in representing women, empowering women or other areas for women?
I love most the way a woman feels when she wears the perfect outfit. An outfit has the power to change a woman’s experience, it’s very exciting to see their happiness. Spending time with these women, in this space and these feelings tells me that I chose right.
It is very important to me, every styling goal for clients is very personal and is about me helping other women feel better about themselves, regardless of weight or physique nor the socioeconomic status- once a woman feels good about the clothes she wears. There is skill and technique in knowing how to hide the flaws of the body. Knowing how to accept yourself and love yourself transmits it to those around her and those around will show love in return.

I most love jewelry designer Rachel La Flaca Loca, has the most special jewelry quality and have a crazy collection of them.
