I think the thing I’ll miss most about our Berlin holiday is the food. I mean starting every day with a delicious breakfast is AMAZING, especially when this delicious breakfast involves cheesecake. This was our desert on Monday (we first went to Keyser Söze for eggs and toast and then to Princess Cheesecake for breakfast dessert. Is breakfast dessert a thing? Well, I’m making it a thing because it is an amazingly good way to start the day! Yay sugar!
Sunday in Berlin began once again with a lovely breakfast – first we stopped by Keyser Söze and then we went to Princess Cheesecake – and believe me when I say I truly miss those cheesecakes, they were divine. (Btw, as far as the outfit is concerned: I wore my new trousers, new Zara bag, new Sisley sweater and my trusty old flat brogue boots from Stradivarius.)
Our trip to Berlin lasted 5 days, from Friday morning when we took the train from Prague to Berlin until Tuesday morning, when we once again boarded the train and headed home. The train takes about 4 and a half hours to get from one place to the other so it’s not so bad. After we arrived in Berlin we each purchased a Berlin Welcome card (it serves as a discount card to some attractions and also as a metro card). We then headed to our hotel to drop off our luggage and then went to have a late lunch at this really good falafel restaurant (Dada Falafel), which was right next to our hotel. Next we went to see the Botticelli exhibition at the Gemalde Galerie. Outfit wise, the majority of our vacation I wore these classic Toms in red. Love these shoes!
Hello everyone. I’m back! In Prague and on this blog… Tuesday afternoon M and I returned from our Berlin vacation, which was absolutely lovely btw. I’ll be sharing photos from our trip in the next post. I’ve been super busy since our return, what with all the work that had been left behind. Also I had to stop by uni and register for next semester. I won’t have any classes as I have all my exams finished well except for the finals, so it should be a good semester for me (more time!) but then again, I’ll have more work in the lab. Okay, now on to my outfit.
Sorry for being such a bad blogger but it seems that there never is enough time (yet strangely there IS time for reading large amounts of fan fiction regarding a particular pair that I ship, but each to their own). I have a stupid exam next week, one which I am in no way prepared for (typical) and so I should be spending all of my time studying. However, given that I have ignored this blog for way too long, I back with an Outfit August post.
This outfit is from the beginning of August, when it was still lovely sunny weather in Prague and extremely hot out. M and I and some friends went to the river side to hang out. It’s actually not the easiest thing to pick an outfit when it is so hot outside but I quite liked this one. I went with these cute jelly sandals. You all know I LOVE jelly shoes and these are one of the few pairs that I have that are NOT from the brand Melissa. These are Ted Baker and they are the Aster bow sandals.
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.
Wednesday was both a very lovely day and a slightly annoying one due to the tube strike, which luckily only really affected our evening transport. We started the day at Westminster and went for a super long walk. M wanted to stop by the Whisky exchange store again and I got to wait and read, which was quite nice actually.
Monday was a beautiful sunny day so we decided to take a small trip, we took the Dlr train to Lewisham and then walked to Grreenwich park and visited the Maritime museum. Continue reading London continued: Oxford & Hyde
Sunday started out exceptionally well with a Lola’s cupcake. I love cupcakes and blue icing is my absolute favorite. Though you can get cupcakes in Prague, I have yet to find the perfect blue icing cupcake here, but I had the great fortune to have two whilst in London (I only took a photo of one though, which had “happy birthday” written in chocolate and with my birthday being the following Friday it was perfect really.) And I also really loved the packaging, so cute!
After my delicious cupcake, M and I took the tube to Camden town. Our first stop was Aldo, located near the tube station, where I bought my new two-in-one tote bag (which I mentioned in my what-I-bought-in-London post). Then we headed to the market and stopped by Miss Poppy Cakes for a coffee break, as it was still early for all the shops to be open. I really loved this place, it had such a fun and quirky decor inspired by Alice in Wonderland, the flamingo wallpaper was just adorable.
