Every day, there is something going on

Good evening guys!
What you up to? I found that in England there is every day some special day – pineapple day, tequila day and yesterday it was pancake day. It was just good reason for Daniil to have pancakes. Again. Honestly, if you would ask some of our flatmates what they usually see me being cooking for Daniil, they would probably tell you: ”pancakes, burgers, pizza”. Well, I love his passion for food:-)).  I know you might say I am not the best support for his healthy life style, but I am such a feeder, as he would say:D.

So yesterday pancake day and for me carrot soup with turmeric and chicken. Meanwhile my dinner I was working on pattern of trousers for Amanda – my colleague from work. Lately I get more excited for making clothes for others than me. It just motivates me more! So I cannot wait once I will be done as both of us see the result and she will be (hopefully) happy about it.

Yesterday was also pay day (my favourite day:D) And I did my budget for the month. I feel ashamed but I have to admit I am not good in saving money. I just like to spend it, either on my clothes, or on Daniil or good food or some experiences. Baaad baad Lucina. I know, I really want to work on this and start to do some savings! Any tips how to save up more money?
Anyway, I have done already some shopping and might show it to you on Sunday in random post, what I bought. If it arrives on time.
Obviously I have to be careful also because of school as I am part-timer now! Yay! I love retail but by working part time I have more time for everything!

How do you guys handle party-time job and school? Or you prefer just study and concentrate on internships? By the time this post is posted, I am probably sitting at school and with hungry face catching every word! :)
Also ehm, see my outfit! That’s the main reason for today’s post! I love the top by & other stories store, honestly.. I ordered more things, all of them amazing quality and the prices are not bad. Combined with leggings and sneakers – very comfortable outfit – I usually wear these combinations when I go shopping, to easily take everything off :D.

Sometimes it's better to don't do it

Untitled-1

Good evening babes!
Last three days were simply mess. I have a feeling that my brain simply got tired and I felt so lazy, so I didn’t do anything (yep, at least workout done!) and sticked to comfortable food. Gosh, I felt and I still do, so weird. And let’s face it – so fat :D. It was still sugar free though but definitely not carb free and definitely high fat. Now I am just asking myself: “Was it really worth it?”. Definitely no. Was it tasty? Definitely YES! :D. But today after I woke up feeling so hangover (I didn’t drink or anything) I was just like “Okay, let’s stop this sh*it! I had enough of overeating and not seeing the right results, enough of not doing things on my usual hundred and ten percent. So if you are in the same position, don’t wait until Monday, or start of the new month, but just jump into the new challenge now. Because there will never be the right time and every day counts. Simple.

I had also my induction at school and am so excited. I met our course leader, the rest of my team I am in class with, got schedule and everything. They said it will be hard upcoming six weeks for us, full of new informations and knowledge. But I heard in it just feeling of new challenges and tasks I cannot wait for. Now I am going back in my memories, to primary school, to my high school, thinking about all the good times and how much I loved that.. Well apart from the primary school but let’s hope nobody will hate for being so active :D.

As it’s going to be pay day soon (who else is so excited) I’ve done also a wish list for this month – there is a budget and blow out version of it :D. I’d love to buy the Celine sunglasses which became so popular last year – you know, the flat frames? Then another pair from Chiquelle – try their website, they have amazing clothes. Also high waisted jeans – I’ll probably go for them to River Island as they are THE ONLY ONES which don’t stretch out – does it also drive you crazy, when the jeans are just loosing its shape? Also some nice bodysuit, fishnet tights, white trainers and leather leggings – piece which I was wearing all the time and now I really miss it. I will buy the leather look leggings in Calzedonia – I can tell you they have the best!
I also want to get some fabrics and maybe some trendy piece for spring, I”ll see today as we are going to the city with Daniil. Cannot wait for our day together:)

Guys, enjoy your weekend and for those of you who are working – do your best and work hard:D

PS: A little sneak peak into the outfit we’ve done this weekend!

Laces and red lips

laces and red lips laces and red lips laces and red lips laces and red lips

Honestly, isn’t this too naked? :)

Good morning babes!
It’s 9am when I am writing this post and I am somewhere in between searching for card reader and sipping rest of my aminos. Legs day done for today, now in the best possible scenario I’d love to just stay in bed and have proper rest. Well, as it is saying, no pain no gain, work hard play hard bla bla… :-D But the proper workout is really worth it. Do you also workout? If you have any tips for girls on youtube who inspire you let me know, I’m actually looking for somebody new to follow / be inspired by.

Today’s morning we went out to do this outfit and obviously the more skin I am showing, the worse the weather has to be. It was slightly raining so I felt every single cold drop on my body thanks to this almost any top. But I love it! I bought it online on H&M website, just before Christmas. It was part of my outfit for dinner with Daniil’s family. Obviously, I didn’t wear it just by itself, I layer it over lace tank top so it looked more elegant. This choice with washed jeans only is more brave and I am not sure if I would wear it normally on the streets – I’d just hate that feeling people staring at my breasts :D. I remember already one time when I was wearing black transparent top (long sleeve and high neck though haha) in Prague to one club. I felt every single look of the girls around and the talks they had :-D. Well, let’s just say people in Czech republic are still not that open minded and not that aware of fashion trends:-P

Next time I’ll probably combine it with some denim jacket and big golden earrings, to give it a bit of retro touch.

What happened last week III/II

666 Untitled-1 Unt2itled-1 3 4 5

Hey babes!

Monday evening and post which was suppose to be uploaded yesterday, eh. It’s been hectic weekend and very quickly running week! Since last Monday I prayed for my holidays to come and then it came – since Thursday I enjoyed my free time spent mostly with Daniil. Damn, how much I needed holidays!

Last week I finished the sequin dress I’ve been working on – and as it is Monday and I am doing random post, the final look will be just surprise for you haha. I mean, if you are curious how does it look like…:D

On Friday we went to this place called Pitt Cue. Daniil loves meat, I love Daniil and fatty pork so this place was the right choice. We were eating ox heart, pig’s trotter, crispiest bacon ever and ox’s cheeks. Everything was delicious but at home I just fell asleep in heavy over-fat coma. Plus the wine we had. Uh! I felt a bit sick to be honest, but the food was divine, I can really recommend the restaurant. Just be fast with their specialities on the menu – they disappear fast!

On Saturday we went to Canary Wharf to fish market. It was amazing and I don’t regret the early wake up at all. For sure it is great idea to visit this even if you are tourist here in London – so unusual experience! We bought fish (red snapper, never heard about it before:D – we bought it considering size, colour and price:D) and tiger prawns – have to proudly say, I did really good job with both of them. See pictures and droll over:D.
I love the part around Canary Wharf, maybe because the talk buildings and industrial part with the port reminds me New York? How much I dream about the city guys, I really hope we  will move there next year..

Then we went to see the movie Fifty shades darker. Simply by one sentence – don’t waste your money on tickets for it. I love Dakota but I really hope she can do better than this – but I believe that this got her so much up – the cinema was so full and it is one of those smaller ones in London where usually nobody goes. The story of the movie was very weak. The book is still more worth to read than the movie to see.. :( But still – I loved the costumes, I loved the gestures Cristian was doing, etc:)
Sunday was very nice day, lazy morning and just about me and Daniil…

Okay, by this I have to stop myself to don’t make you fall asleep by way to long post:) I am so tired today! I had my enrolment day at school and then some appointments to do and came home exhausted. Quickly cooked dinner and meals for the week and now just chilling with Daniil..

Have a great night everyvone xxx

Palm Vaults: When you have your expectations

IMG_0997 IMG_0985 IMG_0983 IMG_0988 IMG_0990

So I’ve been hearing for few weeks already about this cafe called Palm Vaults – the super Instagrammable café in London. I’ve been waiting for my days off to take the journey to Hackney to find out what is it about this place. Actually, it wasn’t really journey as the place is near to us (King’s Cross) so I just took the overground (and made my HIT training in form of catching train) and walked a bit to the Mare street, 411. I would almost miss it! But then I spotted the retro / Miami relaxed styled sign “Palm “Vaults and went in. The girls behind the cashier were super nice and willing to explain me everything and do small substitutions for my drink.
Let’s talk about the main part everybody is interested in: The colorful coffee drinks, smoothies and food. I went for the Velvet latte – with powdered beetroot for its typical pink color. In original recipe the coffee is made with oat milk and agave syrup. I went for cashew milk and version without the syrup. And it was perfect. Really nice coffee with just tiny feeling of the beetroot  – but I believe if you go for the agave syrup added to it, you will barely feel it. Even I went for cashew milk, the foam on my latte was perfect (damn, how did they do it?)
I was also thinking about the Lavender latte but pink is my color – but the lavender, hm, next time for sure!

The interior inside is cute. Flowers and plants hanging everywhere, overall nice atmosphere. But I had the feeling that the space is missing something – not sure if they could decorate it a bit different way, use different chairs? In some moments I had a feeling I am sitting in a reception of little hotel somewhere at Miami, honestly. I just had the feeling that it needs something to lift up the amazing coffee, to be just itself!
Take a look also on the menu – I believe after your workout or long day at work, the smoothies there can really fill you up, without the feeling of guilty cheating on your meal plan. Same with their toasts or granola. I didn’t go for any of this, you know how picky (and sugar free) I am.
Also again, I had a feeling that pretty toasts with avocado and acai bowl has been somewhere… :)
Guys, am I too cruel? I just mean it the best possible and honest way. Once you’ll go there, let me know how did you feel!
