About Me

Posh & Spicy is a destination site for the modest inspired woman who is managing work, family and social life and wants to stay posh and glamorous while doing it all!

 

My name is Toby.  I am a 23-year-old jewish orthodox mom who loves to talk about anything revolving the interesting life of a woman. YES! Jewish people also love to look attractive and beautiful. “Posh & Spicy” is my platform to express my creativity and fashion sense focusing on modest wear. I take my inspiration from my random experiences and from my spontaneous thoughts and feelings. This blog started in my mind after having to explain to people that i can still be an orthodox jewish woman and still love fashion and beauty without compromising my own true values. As a Jewish mom, life can become very hectic between kids, constant holidays, big families and responsibilities and we are more likely to put ourselves on the bottom of the list. I want to inspire you and share with you how to make yourself a priority and how to make you feel fabulous at all times. I revel in everything revolving fashion, glam and beauty. It entertains me as well as relaxes me and it makes me feel young, alive and playful. Therefore i created this blog so that you could all share in my adventures and outlook on the beautiful things in life. Of course finding that perfect outfit that is both fashionable but still in the frame of my jewish values and rules is no easy task, so i thought of sharing with you my sense of style and how i incorporate trends in my everyday looks. I hope by sharing my reflections and ideas of mine, I’ll manage to bring some sunshine and lightheartedness to you in your busy everyday life!

Enjoy my blog and happy reading:)

Lots of love, Toby

    I love your “about me” description. I do not have children (yet!) but I am newly married and busy and I totally understand the “not a lot of time to splurge on one selves, so simply reading some fashion and glam could make me feel better”. I completely agree. 🙂 Beautiful blog by the way! *Love* the layout. <3
