Summer is over but I am back

summer is over

Okay, so it’s been almost three hours for which I was sitting here, going through September issue (talking about Vogue, of course!), watching silly series and thinking how to start again with my blog. Yep, it’s been more than 7 months since I wrote my last post. And it was so positive, you know, saying all these things about me starting the school and being organised, about having everything scheduled etc.

But I feel like life sometimes doesn’t want to work this way and is doing whatever it wants. And that some bullshit happen.

I really don’t know how to start so let’s just take it first things first.
In February I started my diploma course at Fashion Retail Academy. I was so excited but also a bit scared! You know, when I am entering new environment, it is really difficult for me to talk to the people, in foreign language even more ( – they for sure think that I am a complete idiot, the girl who doesn’t know what is she talking about.) But anyway, I gained confidence at school. Confidence in myself, confidence in my skills and I also found what I love to do and what I would love to do for my career.

During this crazy period I didn’t have time for anything – all these assignments effected my blog, doing outfits, going to the gym. And what it affected most was my healthy lifestyle. I remember that moment in March when I just burned out (like a fire cracker, believe me) and started eating crap. Like real crap. I must admit that I broke my sugar-free lifestyle and sinned and sinned and sinned.
Thanks to the full school timetable I couldn’t work as much as I wanted and couldn’t afford any shopping or whatsoever. For 7 months! That is really crazy for somebody like me. I know that I am being drama queen here but that is the thing: Once you get use to your own money and the luxury that you can afford to buy something every month, it is obviously hard to give it up.
I also had to change my job to have even less hours and so have more time for working on school projects.
I didn’t have time to see and visit my family, to travel or at least have some free time for my boyfriend.

Was it all worth it?

So much. I think this was the first time when I recognised that hard work pays of. I had the opportunity to work for Gucci,  recently I was offered a fantastic job of buyer’s admin assistant, I got a distinction from my final project at school, I have met amazing people and gained so much valuable knowledge and skills..
I don’t want to say that I am finally happy because I think that happiness should be unconditional. But I can say that I found partly my inner piece. That I don’t worry anymore about my career path because I set it up. That my job is not stressing me out anymore and I am not coming home tired. That I am starting again with sugar free lifestyle and am so excited about it:)

Okay guys, that’s probably it for tonight, I will see you here next week!

Every day, there is something going on

_K3A9080 _K3A9083 _K3A9089

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.

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.

To get the inspiration

denim jacket by River Island! great denim inspiration denim jacket by River Island! great denim inspiration denim jacket by River Island! great denim inspiration

I just love walking around those luxury stores (lately Balenciaga, Givenchy or Gucci caught my eye) and being inspired for my own outfits or designs of clothes. Last time I took a bit of inspiration from Gucci collection with all the beautiful embroidery – will do something similar on my coat. And last time in Harvey Nichols I saw the amazing denim jacket with dropped shoulders from Balenciaga. It looked so cool! And soon I saw in on everybody – Kim Kardashian, beautiful blogger Kenza… So I decided to get something similar. River Island didn’t disappoint me neither in this time and I found this denim jacket with quote on back. It is the right cut, the right oversized size.. Such a cool piece! I wore it that day with my Nike leggings and new Huarache shoes. (Btw, I have to say the shoes are sooo comfortable, didn’t have any like this for so long time!

What else to say? I just cannot wait for summer, to combine this piece with high waisted shorts and boho accessories <3

PS: Let’s just don’t talk about my hair today. As I cut them, they behave crazy and happily grow all the ways. At least, they are happy.

Autumn is calling for over knee boots

over knee boots over knee boots over knee boots

Well, another “smart” post title is here right?:)
Lately I found myself in control freak zone where I want to rule everything and everywhere. This.. is simple impossible. So I just let some things go its way and try to just breathe sometimes. Do you also have to have everything under the control?
I do gym every day, then work, cooking, cleaning, a bit of blog and some interests, trying to fill most of the time with Daniil. Crazy ride isn’t it? At least I stopped to count every single calorie in my diet and simply am learning eating smaller portions (= my biggest problem).

Currently, I am in searching mood. Searching for pattern books, for things I need to by to start sew again, thinking about designs.. Love it! It is amazing way how to get rid of stress by the way – by doing what you love. So hit the gym and make yourself super tired or sit to the table and work on projects you like, this is like cure.

Guys, can you recommend me some sewing forums or websites for fans of making clothes? I couldn’t find anything what I liked.

Above you can see some pictures we did the other day – the over knee shoes are amazing to look but to wear them? I think it would belong somewhere in the deeper Dante’s hell part! Honestly, Hyde park is 2 minutes from our apartment but in these shoes, it felt like an hour.
Next time, I want them to use for different outfit!
