Continuing on with day three of our Japan holiday: we took the train to Kita-Kamakuraa, saw the Engakuji temple and Kenchoji temple. We took the enoden train and saw the Big Buddha Daibucu (he’s the second largest Buddha in Japan and is 12 meters tall), and we also saw the Hase-dera temple (with the lovelly statue of Kannon), then we took the Enoden train to the end station Enoshima. We went up to the Enoshima lighthouse, M had dinner at Enoshima and I waited (as there was nothing for me) and had dinner back in Shinjuku, Tokyo.

The second day of our Tokyo vacation was just about perfect. We met up with Tatiana, a friend of one of M’s clients, and she was simply the nicest person ever. She also has the cutest dog ever, his name is Eliot but he goes by the nickname 2D (he got the nickname from an airport gate number but in Czech it sounds almost the same as “tudy”, meaning “this way” – coolest nickname ever).

Back in April M & I had the pleasure of traveling to Tokyo. No, that’s a lie, the traveling part was a pain in the ass (quite literally too, Allitalia have tiny seats). Plus I had a horrible headache on the way there, so that was a bit difficult. But once we were in Tokyo things started looking up. Tokyo is amazing and I wish I lived there! Seriously, I feel in love with this city.

I mentioned going to the cinema while we were on holiday in Dubai and here’s one of the outfits that I wore. This was to see the movie How to be Single starring Dakota Johnson and Rebel Wilson and I must say, I really enjoyed the film. I could have done without Alison Brie’s character (Lucy, a girl who really wants to be in a relationship and is super annoying) but I was happy with how her story turned out (spoiler alert! She doesn’t end up with the bartender, thank goodness too because that would have been so cliché). I absolutely loved the other three main characters, especially Alice.

Hey everyone, how have you all been? I’ve been doing pretty well, went on vacation to Dubai, which was lovely, but am still working on my thesis paper (and by working on I really mean ignoring and procrastinating all the time). The title of this post is a sort of inside joke – when we were in Dubai I kept seeing this novel (called Desperate in Dubai) everywhere (we go to bookstores frequently), I didn’t buy it because I wasn’t interested in it after reading the cover, but as a vegan I definitely felt a bit desperate in Dubai as often I only like one option of what to eat! (I actually have one particularly entertaining story from one restaurant where they had a “vegetarian wrap” and when I asked what was in it, they actually said “chicken”. Yeah, okay, no thank you. I ended up eating hummus and falafel most of our stay but since I actually really love both hummus and falafel, it was fine. Continue reading Desperate in Dubai
I should have posted this outfit a lot sooner but anyways, this was one of my favorite Christmas gifts that I got from M, my very first themed jumper (well, that’s not completely true, as I did once buy a Christmas sweater at a thrift store for an ugly sweater party, but that hardly counts). I wore this outfit on the 26th of December, first out to go shopping (we popped by the mall to go to Lush, I’ll show you what I bought later in this post) and then we went to my parents’ house for a family lunch.

Hey everyone, I hope you all are great and that January is treating you well. It’s gotten quite cold in Prague (it’s currently -4 degrees Celsius as I am writing this) but it’s all the more cozy in my flat. Drinking warm tea with a dash of lemon, sitting in my chair by the heater – it’s all good.
To start off the new blogging year I thought I’d share my new year’s resolutions. Now, I’m not much of a resolutions girl but this year I’m thinking of it as less of a strict set of rules and more as a guide to help me make this year totally awesome. So without further ado, here are my resolutions for 2016:

Hey everyone, Christmas is drawing near and I thought I’d share some easy last minute gift ideas, for those that have left getting gifts for the end of December. With only a couple days left before Christmas I’d say the best thing to do if you haven’t got someone a gift yet is first to NOT PANIC. While last minute gift shopping can be super stressful, it can also be fun!

After Buddy passed away I was really sad, I get very attached to my animals and to me they are members of the family, so it was a hard time. We weren’t going to go visit Vienna this year but then M decided that I needed a change of scenery and we went for an extended weekend. The last time I was in Vienna was a year ago, in December, and it was after Dracul passed away (I think I was in more of a shock after Dracul passed away because at least Buddy had lived a relatively long life, he was about 14 years old, whereas Dracul would have only been 5 years old in the summer, so his death was completely unexpected) and I blogged about it here (you can see I look really sad in those photos). I hope next year we can go without any deaths preceding our trip, but I have to say that the change of place really did help.
The photo above was posted on my instagram and was taken in front of the Albertina museum.

One of my favorite bloggers, Leah, is once again hosting Outfit August, which is a fun idea about reusing older items from your closet and not being obsessed about all things new all the time, as is the case with most fashion blogs. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love new things. But I also love combining new things with old items, or just going with all old items sometimes. Anyways, it’s already mid August and I have had a slow start but alas, Outfit August is finally here! I wanted the first outfit of Outfit August that I would post on my blog to be a bit special, and I think this was the perfect outfit.
