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

And what about the leggings?

So what is the deal with leggings? Is that one big no no or is that allowed, for those very casual occasions, for weekend wear?
Apparently this trend hasn’t faded yet – recently seen on Gigi Hadid walking around NY in very comfortable looking outfit – cropped hoodie, grey pair of leggings and no-make up perfect skin. I personally love them on Kardashians – either you love them or hate them, they have style and know how to wear every single piece of clothes. But what you could spotted on these girls is the most important know-how for leggings: Material, material, material. They don’t do smaller sizes where you can see your underwear print or any transparency. And no, you don’t have to go crazy with money, it just needs patience and lots of trying to find the best pick for you. I personally recommend Asos, Nike, H&M or Joseph. First three brands are more casual and you can find there easier fabrics and more fun styles. Joseph is doing amazing gabardine leggings – I have mine for a year now and cannot complain at all! Also on Asos you can get some for workwear as well – not whether treat Asos as high street or high end fashion retail as they have amazing stuff sometimes.

By years now I also love leather look leggings – for me the best one are from Calzedonia. I recently tried Forever 21 or Asos, but they were too thin or my (no)bum looked weird..:)
It is also all about details – what are you going to pair them with, accessories and details on leggings itself.

So what is your final opinion, yay or nay for leggings?
Here I went for very sporty combination – bottom from Nike with Primark crop top and my super comfortable Nike Huarache trainers.

Sewing: red blouse with raglan sleeves

inspiration inspiration

First I did my research and found few pictures for inspiration. I want the blouse looks like the white model above!

red blouse with raglan sleeves red blouse with raglan sleeves red blouse with raglan sleeves

Soo today is sewing post, right?
I started to work on the 80s style blouse for which I found inspiration the other day on Pinterest. I did some sketches and pattern but so far the blouse came out.. Hm, not exactly as I imagined. from the black and white picture you can see how the cut should look like – raglan sleeves and deep neck. But I think I went for too elegant and draggy fabric, what do you think? As I am so obsessed with details, I might redo it. Actually, I will redo it for sure! Take a sneak peak on how far I am with the blouse. I throw away the original sketches. I might do new one and add it later for you guys to see which cut I wanted to go for – maybe you can give me little help with pattern then? :)

Have a great day!

PS: This text was in absolutely hurry but at least… Express my thoughts about the blouse:D Honestly, I really have to work on the blouse over my days off. Not hundred percent happy with the result!

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?
