July 10th is my birthday and we had just gotten back from London the night before, I took an additional day off from work to unwind post holiday. I spent the day lazying about and then in the evening M and I headed out to one of our favorite restaurant for a lovely birthday dinner.
The time has finally come to share my London holiday. We arrived on Thursday, took the train from the airport and then went to our hotel. We had dinner at an Italian restaurant and then we went to one of our favorite London hang-outs: the Bohemia Lounge bar. This place is bloody amazing with the best cocktails ever!
I’m back from London (we arrived last night, cuddled Bananas and then went out to dinner) and right now I’m relaxing at home (I took an additional day off from work) and this morning my new Erin Condren life planner arrived! I chose the watercolor palette cover and it’s the 18 month version. I also purchased two sets of the Erin Condren markers (we don’t have Sharpies here). I filled out the past week and what went on during our vacation.
Another belated outfit post, this was worn to M’s friend’s birthday party. I had a totally different outfit planned but then I went with this one instead. The dress I had originally wanted to wear was this one:
Last weekend M and I and some friends went to a seafood festival (as most of you know, I don’t eat meat but I do eat some seafood.) The weather was perfect, sunny and warm. And so I had some fun with my outfit:
My theme was center around a play on black and white, the monochrome look is still a favorite for me but I mixed things up a bit by wearing one black and one white Melissa Barbie Stiletto print ultragirl flat shoe. When I bought them in 2011 I first bought the white pair and then right away I knew I needed the black pair too in order to do this mixed and matched look.
A very busy day. We visited Neptune’s fountain, the Spanish steps, Villa Borghese (the Galery Borghese) and the lovely Borghese gardens.

We had a really great time in Rome, thanks to the pleasure only really good weather and amazing food can bring. My top three things that are important in life (besides good company) are weather, food, and a tie between books/movies (and possibly shoes). Anyways, we arrived on Friday, picked up our Rome passes and then took the train to Termini station, then a tram to our hotel. We took a selfie, I don’t wear make-up when I’m traveling, it just feels uncomfortable for me, so this is one of the few times you’ll ever see a photo of me without any make-up.
I can’t believe it has taken me so long to wear these shoes again – you may remember this post with outfit photos from February 2014, and that was the last time I had worn these awesomely high ankle boots. Until now, when I wore them on Easter Monday to a family lunch at my grandparents’ house.
I am a stationery nut and I love cute things, so it is actually quite surprising that it has taken me so long to hop onto the Erin Condren life planner band wagon. Long story short, I needed a new planner and I tried getting one just at Neoluxor (the biggest book shop in Prague) and they only had really ugly planners so I finally went on to the Erin Condren site and ordered one of hers. I got the Taffy stripes one with just my name on it (it is pictured above but without the name). I got the event stickers as I think those are really great and I also got the photo stickers and I really can’t wait to see how those turned out. I can’t wait for the planner to arrive and to get way more organized than I currently am.

A very belated outfit post – I actually wore this outfit on Valentine’s day afternoon when we went food shopping and then stopped by the Sconto furniture store to pay for our new closet. Anyways, I wore a really comfy outfit that I quite liked, but it was more “wearable” than “fashionable”. I wore a super comfy pair of shoes (Kenneth Cole for Reaction “saltnpep” black pony flats) that I really love.
