Currently Watching

I don’t usually rave about TV shows but when I fall in love, I fall hard and I have been seriously crushing on the show iZombie. The protagonist, Dr. Liv Moore, is a zombie working at the morgue with her friend/boss Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti and solving murders alongside detective Clive Babineaux.

In order to survive (and not to turn into a crazy mindless zombie) Liv has to eat brains every once in a while, and by doing so she also gets part of the people’s memories, abilities and character traits.

It is so entertaining to watch her change in every episode and you never know what to expect. Also, all the supporting characters are great. Her boss and close friend Ravi is my favorite, they have such a cute friendship together and it’s nice to see a male female friendship, where there are no sexual undertones and they’re really just great friends. Ravi knows about Liv being a zombie (right from episode one) and is trying to help her by trying to find a zombie cure. I also really like her professional relationship with Clive, who actually thinks that Liv is a psychic. They have a great dynamic.

Resolutions

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:

Last Minute Gift Ideas

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! IMG_9510.JPG

Christmas Countdown

Hey everyone! How is your December so far? Mine seems to be going super fast but otherwise things are good. I cannot wait for Christmas but there is still so much to do (I still need to buy three gifts and then wrap them up, we need to clean the flat for visitors and I want to get rid of some old stuff I know I will never wear/use). And I still need to finish writing my thesis paper! Yikes!

One of my favorite activities no matter what month it is will always be going to the movies. Luckily, M is also a huge film enthusiast so we happily share this hobby. Last week we went to see Krampus (which was a fairy tale/horror movie) and the week before we went to see Bridge of Spies  (starring Tom Hanks). Combined with going to the movies I love eating out at Rancheros, a fast food Mexican restaurant that’s located near our favorite cinema. They have veggie options of all their meals so that makes me very happy indeed. My favorite food there (and pictured above and below) is the vegetarian Mexican burger with nachos (plus the grapefruit Jarritos drink – love it).

Late November in Wien

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.

Outfit August! Yay!

IMG_8480One 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.

London Continued: the last two days

IMG_8213Wednesday 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.
