Good karma

I’ve got the feeling that as last weeks we had quite bad karma, now the cards has changed and lately everything is going well. We found an amazing place to live and I literally cannot wait to be there. Honestly, I am the type of person who is already browsing Ikea’s website, Gumtree’s second hand furniture and Pound lands for cheap food storage. And moving will be in three weeks!

To be honest, lately I concentrate more on gym, workouts, eating clean than my blog. Maybe it is just my way how to run away from the small struggles and the fear of career future, my blog future etc. Because I work like this: I need to see results in short time period, I am not that passionate to wait few months or so. So you probably understand it is easier to target my time to gym and kitchen:) But I  work on the fashion part as well, I promise (to myself mainly).

Last weekend we spent in amazing company of my best friend Gabi and her boyfriend Daniel. It was such an amazing time and I just found again how lucky I am to have somebody like Gabi. It is not about seeing each other every day, it is about the friendship and the connection we got together – I’ve known her for more then 10 years and we went through everything together.

By the way, as I am not big fan of New year’s resolutions, I just simply do stuff which I want to do and in the end of the year I just want to look back and say to myself: “Wow, what an amazing year, what everything I’ve done, where we travelled, etc!”
I think this way I will feel better and not like I wasted my year and just waiting for the new one to start with something. Because the thing is, that for the right moment, there is no specific date or time, the only thing which matters is right now I think!

Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas! Part I.

_k3a2748 _k3a2720 _k3a2614 _k3a2759 _k3a2766 _k3a2453 _k3a2868 _k3a2889 _k3a2991 _k3a3055 _k3a3367 _k3a2451 _k3a2378

Maybe it is bad to say, that my best experience from whole US trip was this city. But I have to say it. Las Vegas is fabulous. I’ve never seen city like this, living 24/7, with such an amazing vibe and energy (Daniil’s keep saying they are adding something in the air, for people to feel like this). But honestly, you just have to experience this.

Once we arrived, I did not turn off my camera and my neck hurt from all the turnings around. We stayed in Caesar’s Palace, at Augustus tower. Damn, if you want the view which we paid for, you really have to pay. But let’s just do not talk about the fact that you have to tip everybody from bell men, waitresses, at valley parking or that you have to pay for everything extra money, taxes and resorts fees. We saved the money, let’s make it rain! :D
The hotel is absolutely fabulous. Obviously, you can find much cheaper places and still be close to the centre. This is just more like a symbol of Vegas for me so we decided to stay there. The building has got almost 5 000 rooms. How crazy is that?
Free access to the gym is must, as well the luxurious swimming pool (We’ve been there once. Either we were hangover or tired or just walking outside). And of course, you got a shopping mall inside. Also the decoration are done the way you got the feeling it is still daylight there.
From our room we could see the Bellagio fountains. All the hotels are connected under the ground so you basically don’t have to leave the air conditioned spaces. Nice, but you absolutely have no clue about time or what is going on outside.

Outside on the streets, you can find everything. Mostly promoted girls in “men’s clubs”, restaurants or Uber.

In Vegas we’ve done lots of pool parties (Drai’s, Wet republic, Encore at Hard Rock hotel), parties (Hakkasan, MGM Grand, Omnia, etc.). Also helicopter tour, Cirque du Soleil – it was absolutely stunning, we did Michael Jackson! And visited places like Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant for burgers and Heart attack grill (first you enter the restaurant and get the hospital dress on, then here you can order the burger with almost 10 000kcal in it. It is, by the way from other ingredients, 40 slices of bacon. If you don’t finish your meal, you gotta be spanked! Seriously, there is a stand, and the girls do not care how it hurts you!
People who weight more than 250 lb can eat for free. How nice it is, to support weight problems:P

Guys, I am pretty sure I forgot bunch of stuff so I’ve decided to split this post into the two so enjoy first part of pictures!

Black and white mood

black and white mood black and white mood black and white mood

Do you also have sometimes the idea to style yourself like the picture you’ve seen on Instagram or hanging on the wall, in a shop? When I was walking around pier in San Francisco, I saw in one shop that picture of Lana Del Rey. She was sitting in a car, leaned over the steering wheel. She looked so awesome, the picture as well! So I decided to do something similar (I didn’t want to copy it) and styled myself in our cookie ( = our car, Dodge, I didn’t like it so I called that cookie – the similar shape) to similar mood. What do you think about it? It is also my first time experimenting with black&white pictures.

Taky občas na internetu nebo někde na instagramu vidíte obrázek, fotku, do které se chcete stylizovat? Já tohle měla s fotkou Lany Del Rey. Procházeli jsme obchůdky v přístavu San Francisca a já na zdi viděla tu její fotku, vyvedenou v černé a bílé. Strašně jí to tam slušelo a já se rozhodla pro něco podobného. Pochopte, nechtěla jsem to úplně okopírovat, jen jsem se nechala inspirovat tím stylem a udělat si to po svém. Tak jsme vzali naší sušenku (takhle jsem nazvala náš ohavnej Dodge, kterej kluci vyměnili za předchozí auto. Prostě protože chtěli, klukovská blbost no.). Jak říkám, sedla jsem si do sušenky a zkoušeli jsme nafotit fotky v podobné atmosféře. Jak se Vám líbí výsledek?

The sky is the limit

Malibu coast Santa Monica beach at Malibu fun fair in Austin miami beach from above

That’s the feeling I got with our new little drone. Actually, the size is a bit misleading..:)
We welcomed to our “family” a drone – Phantom 4 from company Dji. It is such an amazing company! They started like a start up which they are not anymore – their popularity has grown massively.

The drone is such a cool thing. Obviously, you have to be careful where to fly and also to don’t hurt any animals around, neither yourself. But then, once you are free to fly, it is absolutely amazing and only the sky is your limit. It is so different to see things from above, make fun videos and pictures.

Just let you know – First three pictures are from coasts of Santa Monica, Malibu, the other one is from fairy in Austin in Texas and the last one from Miami beach.

Že jen obloha je limit – takový pocit mám, když lítáme kolem s naším novým dronem.
Přivítali jsme toho prcka (teda, o velikosti by se dalo polemizovat) do naší hi-tech rodinky těsně před prázdninami. A na prázdninách si jej náležitě užili! Mimochodem jedná se o dron Phantom 4 od společnosti Dji – slyšeli jste o nich? Vše to začalo jako start up, což už teď rozhodně není. Jejich popularita obrovsky vzrostla. A design mi až nápadně připomíná výrobky od Jablíčka… :))

Ten dron je fakt pecka. Jakmile se s tím jednou naučíte, nechce se Vám přistát. Musíte být ale stále na pozoru, lítat pouze v dovolených prostorech (což my jsme samozřejmě strašně dodržovali), nenaletět do ptacta nebo do kamarádů stojících poblíž.
Každopádně vidět věci z ptačí perspektivy je úžasné.

Abyste se jen orientovali v obrázcích – první tři jsou z oblasti kolem Santa Moniky, Malibu a San Diega. Další je z Texasu, z města Austin, kde se konal takový ten typický americký “festival”. A poslední jsme vlastně dělali jako první – jedná se o pláž v Miami!

Just do it by yourself

This is going to be something for real meat lovers!
The food in US is very arguable. Meanwhile you got shops with food full of sugar bombs containing artificial whatever or junk fast food, you can also pick nicer way to eat – either organic stores or restaurants like we sometimes did. I really enjoyed food in Texas, San Diego and Los Angeles – we visited such an interesting places!

Tohle bude něco pro milovníky masa.
Jídlo v USA bylo velice diskutabilní. Ale i přes smršť fast foodů a řetěců s nezdravým jídlem jsme měli možnost jíst i v hezčích místech a nakupovat v organických obchodech. Mají to tu plné grass-fed dobytka a cold-press šťáv a tak jsem si tu libovala. Nechte inspirovat pár místy, které jsme navštívili!

First was San Diego.
Place called Crab Hut is so cool – you pick the things which you want to eat (seafood – very rich on choices!), the way you want to cook it and spices used for it. After a while, they’ll bring you bucket containing hot plastic bag with the things you picked. We did mix of everything and it was delicious. I never had so big crab or so tasty buttery shrimps.

V San Diegu jsme navštívili Crab Hut. V menu si vyberete, které mořské potvory na talíři chcete, jak je chcete uvařit (my šli do bylinkového másla). O chvíli později Vám přinesou kýbl s horkým sáčkem plným těch potvor, které jsou neskutečně lahodné.

Strip club was our second choice in San Diego. It was my first time in strip club. Talking about the restaurant obviously!
The point was easy – chose steak or piece of different meat which you like and then, just do it by yourself. For this, you have huge grills in the middle of the restaurant. That’s such an amazing idea! Perfect for parties with friends or some different special occasions.

Strip club je místo s obrovským grilem uprostřed restaurace. Vy si jen vyberete maso, které chcete a oni Vám ho přinesou syrový. Je jen na Vás, jak si maso ochutíte a ugrilujete (a hnidopichové už nemůžou nadávat).

Texas was obviously amazing for BBQ. Salt Lick BBQ was a bit out of the city, but worth it. How is it possible to do all you can eat from meat like this?? The ribs were amazing (I love it), the brisket was falling apart (Daniil loved that!) and the sausage was full of meat, not that fatty. Like a sides, you got cole slaw, beans and bread. Skip the bread and go for the meat, maybe few of their pickles!
Also, they have small winery behind the restaurant. Trying dry wine in that heat, wasn’t the best choice thanks to my low tolerance for alcohol:D

V Texasu samozřejmě musíte ochutnat BBQ. Restaurace Salt Lick BBQ je trochu z ruky, ale stojí za to. Jídlo bylo podáváno formou all you can eat a ta kvalita byla úžasná. Přeskočte lákavě vypadající chleba a jděte si přidat pečená žebra.

Los Angeles and Korean town. Again, all you can eat in restaurant Oo Kook Korean BBQ (3385 W 8th St, Los Angeles, CA 90005, United States – as there is no website to add). Super happy waitress takes you to your table with your own personal grill in the middle. You can pick from the menu up to 28 items per person (and believe me, it is more THAN ENOUGH), they will bring it raw and you do it. Next time I should really avoid places like this as the food was fabulous. Thanks a lot for the amazing service as well!

Mé asi nejoblíbenější místo v Los Angeles bylo korejské all you can eat. Já vím, zas. Ale Daniil je spíš na kvantitu, než kvalitu:D. Místo zvané Oo kook BBQ je třeba rezervovat, protože tam chtějí všichni. Z menu si vyberete,co chcete (hovězí jazyk, brisket, chobotnici či je libo kuřecí?) a pak si jídlo na vlastním grilu vlastně ugrilujete. Tenhle trend “udělej si sám” by se měl rozjet i v Londýně.

Must-have visit (not for me) was a chain Cheesecake factory. I admire them for the various cheesecakes. But that was it, the rest of the experience I had from second hand by Daniil and Rudy and they said it was ok. I was about to go for low-carb one but the waitress, neither baker, wasn’t able to tell me what is exactly inside. A bit sad:(

Takové malé must have je navštívení Cheescake factory, místa, které můžete znát z Teorie velkého třesku. Za mě jako odpůrce cukru palec dolu (i proto, že číšník nevěděl co je v low carb cheesecaku – nedala jsem si ho), za kluky to bylo oukej.

I hope you enjoyed today’s, a bit longer, post about food and have some inspiration!

Doufám, že jste si dnešní delší post užili a načerpali třeba i inspiraci!
