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!

What happened last week II/II

sugar free desert and random post of the week

Good morning to all of you!

I don’t know, where to start today. It’s been so busy week that for the next weekly random post I must do some notes on daily basis to remember what everything I wanted to share with you guys!
This week it was almost just me at home as Daniil left for his friend’s birthday party to the Netherlands. I was quite excited to have weekend for myself and sewing but.. You know what, is sucked. I missed my boyfriend so badly! The weather wasn’t helping at all so when I was on my way home from shopping, I wasn’t excited about the empty flat, about not doing our jokes or being together. But I have to admit I did lots of sewing though. I’ve been working on new sewing project – working name is dress for Daniil’s birthday party. And the dress is for me, just to let you know. It is like this – for every smaller or bigger occasion I get excited so easily that I have to simply create new outfit for it, cook something special for it or simply organize the whole event. Yep Lucie, that’s you, you little bossy girl.
So I said, I’ve done another sewing project which I absolutely love love love (see blog posts in following weeks), went through bunch of magazines and cleaned up my closet. I also successfully finished first week without carbs (eating carbs only in vegetable, nuts, cocoa or.. actually that might be it!) so I am so proud about myself. And from the picture above you can see that when you quit carbs, you don’t quit desserts for breakfast! Visit this amazing blog of a girl called Janina who writes about her sugar free life and shares amazing recipes. Yesterday I baked her brownies (with a little paleo twist) and they are divine. The cream on top is just sweet positive side of high fat diet:D

 What about you guys, what have you done for last week to be proud of? :)

PS: I found one amazing thing: My boyfriend probably wears only one sock / has got one real leg only / Our washing machine is eating socks. Honestly, this morning when I was folding his socks, I had 6 spares socks. And I’ve already sorted them out like million times! Anybody has got any clue about this?

PS2: Next time I am definitely coming to Netherlands. Yesterday night I had Face Time with Daniil and saw all the amazing people I can call my friends. I miss you guys so badly! And Happy B-Day Thijs! I would change partying with you guys for all cashew butter in the world! :D

Spotted this week

spotted this week-2spotted this week8-2 spotted this week 4 spotted this week7 spotted this week 6 spotted this week spotted this week-3

So last weekend Gabi came over and we had that amazing girly weekend. We had so much fun, I am so grateful for friend like her!
Obviously, the first day we went to Oxford street do so some necessary shopping, visit Primark (yes, I am using expression “visit” together with Primark. Honestly, who spend in that zoo less than 2 hrs!:D ) and just walk around.

I found just by accident this lovely store called “& other stories“. And fell in love!
Do you know this brand? Basically it is under the H&M group, with designs from Stockholm and Paris (honestly, lately French fashion got me so much! And Swedish bloggers.. well you know those famous bloggers from Stockholm!). This dangerous combination of French chic originality and Swedish style cannot make anything wrong.  The store I went in is on Oxford street, but they have more stores around London, just check their website.

Honestly, those from you, who are constantly on Instagram (like me) searching for outfit inspiration and seeing all these pretty trendy stuff, will love this store! It is exactly the thing I was looking for for ages. I don’t know where to start – they have exactly the trendy pieces for very affordable prices, the material quality is… I would say comparable to some high end brands and the colours are beautiful. Everything at & other stories starting by underwear ending up by accessories and cosmetic products. I was especially targeting on few pieces on my wish list – high waisted trousers and some tops.
I definitely recommend to visit the store as you might regret ordering online – at least you can really see the amazing quality plus I think at the store they have way more things. I must say even I regret I ordered bunch of stuff online! Hm, at least I didn’t have money left to go crazy at the store:) Check their knitwear and denim collection for sure. They are also on spot with the khaki colour which is so trendy now! Worth mentioning is also the cosmetic section where I found lots of body lotions smelling like sweets and most amazing body scrubs.
Once I will receive my stuff you can be sure to see it here on blog in outfits!

Have a fab evening guys and happy shopping :P

What happened last week I/II

what happened last week

Okay, January is over. How you are you guys keeping with your New Years resolutions? So far for me, everything is going well, I am just a bit worried how I will manage to do my blog together with school and work and gym. I am getting more and more excited as my induction is getting closer, yayy!

Last week my best friend Gabi came over to London and we had amazing time together.. i really needed something like this, just get drunk, have fun and talk with her! Thank you Gabi for being here:))

Today is also my second day on low-carb diet. Understand, by meaning “diet” I mean lifestyle, not trying to do some short term non sense diet. I have to say I feel amazing, a bit light headed though:D. But it should be fine during few days. I am doing a little blog post about it, will publish next week probably!

I also have to recommend you again the Dishoom restaurant. On Wednesday I went there with my friend Katka and the food is amazing! I was really about to stay with grilled lamb choice, but the smell of the cheddar Naan bread was too tempting. Poor will power!

I think that would be it, what happened last week and what I was up to. How are you guys?

PS: I was just thinking, am I going to be the oldest one at the fashion course I am going to study? :D Or is more people in my age starting their career by studying etc?
