London continued: days 2-3

IMG_8073First of all, apologies for the delay in posting, I have been plagued with a bad cold and the last couple of days have been hellish. Finally, today I have been feeling a little better so what better way to celebrate than to get back  into blogging. I promised you some more photos from our London holiday and here are days 2 and 3.

Day 2 was Friday the third of July, M and I went to Westminster, walked around for a bit (just long enough for me to get a few blisters) and then we took a boat ride to Hampton Court Palace. It was our engagement anniversary, exactly one year ago M had asked me to marry him in the Hampton Court Gardens (and if you’re curious, no, we still haven’t set a date yet. We obviously suck at wedding planning, but I quite like that actually. Neither one of us is in any hurry, so we’re just happy where we are right now.)

Files of New: London shopping

Sorry! So sorry! I am seriously behind on my blogging schedule but there has been so much to do! I was hoping to have all the photos from my recent London holiday but I haven’t got them all yet, and the ones I do have haven’t been organized yet. I am incredibly behind schedule, but going on vacation usually does that to me (which is one of the reasons I don’t really like going on holiday, but I’m weird.) I have a few posts planned out but they should be up and posted soon, the first one on Monday. In the mean time I thought I’d share what I bought in London:

doc martens tan tattoo short bootI’ll start with my favorite purchase: these Doc Martens tattoo print tan lace-up short boots. I had wanted to buy them when we were in Rome on our holiday but they only had them in a size UK7 and they were too big, so when we were in London I found them in a shop in a size UK6 and the fit was perfection. I have a pair of Doc Marten boots (high ones, with 21 holes, also in a size UK6) but oh boy, those are still not comfortable/worn in yet. These seem to be wearable from the get-go but that probably is due to the height or lack of (the place where the other boots are uncomfortable are where they bend on the ankle, but as these new ones don’t go that high, they are fine.)

Just a quick planner post


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.

Files of New: sunglasses

h1n1 sunglasses aviatorIn preparation of our upcoming holiday, M bought me two pairs of sunglasses (there was a buy one get the second pair free promotion at the store) and I decided to go for this Aviator style from the brand H1N1. I went with the aviator style because I have a broken nose and aviators have an adjustable bridge, which I can manually tilt and make a little bit more comfortable. Usually sunglasses give me a headache after a while. Here’s hoping these will be comfy and stylish at the same time. The first pair I picked out are these black rimmed  black lensed glasses. The second pair are completely the same style but in a different colorway. They have a deep blue-green tint to the lenses (it doesn’t really come across in the product image, but in real life it is quite intense.)

h1n1 sunglasses blue tinth1n1 sunglasses caseThey both came with this rather ugly sunglasses case, but I don’t care. I think the glasses are flattering on my face and they don’t press on my nasal bone too much so win-win. I can’t wait to wear them on my holiday and probably already tomorrow on the way to work, because these are too good just to wear on holiday.

Files of new: shoes

Today I want to share with you two new pairs of shoes, the most recent additions to my shoe collection.

reebok skyscape harmonyThe first pair are these Reebok Skyscape Harmony slip-on trainers that are the most comfortable pair of shoes that I own. They may not be the most beautiful pair I have but they make up for it by being so good to my feet. M bought them for me in preparation for our July holiday (there is always so much walking on our holidays and my feet need all the help they can get. I am in between sizes and have a very high arch so finding comfortable walking shoes for me isn’t the easiest thing.) I’ve already worn them a couple of times and have one outfit post to show you in a future post.

The next pair is a lot more fun.

Roman Holiday

Sorry for the delay in posts, I was on a mini-break (from Friday morning until Monday evening in Rome) and needed a bit of a rest after returning to Prague. I’ll have some travel outfits to post tomorrow.

But I thought I’d share what I bought in today’s post. Our Roman holiday wasn’t really a shopping trip (that’s our London holiday) but I did visit 3 different Zara stores in between the sight-seeing and bought a few things.

Files of New: Ready for Spring

melissa green flatsToday I’m sharing another files of new post, since I’ve been naughty and bought a few things. My bank account is weeping but that’s a story in itself. But back to the new crap, let’s start with shoes, as shoes are always my favorite. The newest member of my shoe family are these Mel by Melissa flats that I sneaked into M’s order. I had been missing a pair of green Melissas and these seemed like the perfect pair for me.

Ordered

I wasn’t supposed to buy anything but I couldn’t  help myself. I placed an Asos order today. I feel a bit guilty as I’m on the verge of being very broke but I NEEDED an outlet for my stress (I working on my thesis paper again and it’s about as stressful as it gets). Here are some of the things I purchased:

new look strawberry clutchI’ve had my eye on this New Look strawberry clutch and it was the one from the new line that I wanted the most (along with the pineapple one). I was thinking of getting the Skinny Dip Unicorn Tears clutch bag but that one was more than twice the amount that this one cost, so in the end I just went to the cheaper option.

Erin Condren

life planner erin condrenI 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.
