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.

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.

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:
I’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.)

Another belated outfit post, from roughly two weeks ago. It was a colder day, M and I and some friends went to the pub. (Weather in Prague is a bit mysterious, spring/summer days can be super hot or really cold.)

This outfit is from about two weeks ago – I have a bit of a backlog of photos going on as I haven’t been posting much lately. Sorry! I’ll hopefully be posting more these days. Anyways, M and I went to see the Mad Max film again and this is the outfit I wore.

Hello everyone, sorry about being so spacy this week. To top it off, I wore some really great outfits to work this week and didn’t get a single photo, arrgh. But here’s an outfit from this past weekend, from Sunday when M and I went to his parents’ house for lunch. I wore my scenic mountain print dress, a sweater coat I bought in Vienna, my new Rome bag and these old Zara Woman leather ballerina flats with an interesting brooch detail on the front.

This outfit is from a weekend when M and I and some friends went out to lunch, then we went to this little choco-cafe place called “U Cervene zidle” for dessert. Then we all went to the Prague Rum Fest (a rum festival) because M really wanted to go. And after that we went to have dinner, so it was a really busy day! My outfit was centered around comfort with a bit of style. I went with flats as I knew there would be loads of walking involved. I haven’t worn these Zara mustache green velvet slipper shoes in ages!

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