With Love from Berlin pt.1

with love from berlinOur 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!

London continued: Sunday Funday

IMG_8112Sunday 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!

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.

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 backĀ  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.)

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.
