Hi, my dear readers ♥

In June I decided to participate in Melanie Berg's The Fibre Co. KAL even though I didn't want to make any new shawls until autumn...  ha ha
There was a few patterns to pick from and one of them was "Tamdou" which has been in my library for a while, so I decided to finally make it. I used yarn from Tausendschön which I bought at CreativeMesse in spring in combination with the dark blue Kollage Yarns Riveting which is made from recycled blue jeans ! I bought this skein in Vienna a few years back and I'm so happy that I finally found a perfect project for it ♥

This was a fun knit. No stress, fast-growing, colour-changing, lace parts switching with easy garter stitch sections. And the result is SO GOOD ♥

Here is the first set of photos I took with ginger hair ...

And the second set, with new hair :)
When I was picking the colour combination I neither had this pair of pink pants nor blue hair !
And now it matches absolutely PERFECT !

I love wearing this shawl, I was never really into big multi-coloured shawls, but this one changed my mind - I WANT MORE !

yarn - agave & "blueberry yogurt" from Tausendschön
dark blue from Kollage Yarns

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Hi, my dear readers ♥

Do you like dungarees? I do :D I always had ones in my wardrobe when I was a kid and also later as teenager... so I was really happy when they started to appear in shops again last year, but I could never find the perfect shape or material which would not make me look like a child or worse, pregnant. They were mostly too baggy, had way too many fake-denim-holes and scratches or they were too expensive ...

Until one day I discovered these in C&A ! They were afordable, fit perfectly and have a nice colour ♪

They're pretty cool for ridding a bike, because I don't have to watch out for my t-shirt to untuck from pants :D Also my lighting Cyberdog party shoes are great in case you ride home late and your light stops working ! (that's what is happening to me all the time)

 dungarees are also perfect for enamel pins !

I wore this outfit on one nice warm Saturday, when we went on bikes to city center with Honza. He recently bought a new bike and wanted to try the route to his office. When we got there we stopped by for a lunch in very fancy-looking vietnamese restaurant called Chu-Chin and it was delicious ♥ nom nom

I hope you're all doing fine !
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Hi, my dear readers ♥

It's slowly becoming my personal tradition to order some nice things from Samsara Himalife every summer. Add some cute clothing, gifts, burning incense and tea in the shopping cart and can't wait for the package to arrive just on time for summer heat ♪

This time I ordered a beautiful black dress with emroidery, the cutest handmade balerinas, (finally!) a pashmina shawl in pastel colours, gift pack of various tea sorts for Honza's name day together with Himalayan burning incense sticks and big mandala cloth for my mum, which I forgot to take photo of ... (but it's super-pretty !)

When I got the package I put on the dress right away and was wearing it the whole upcoming week, because it's JUST SO GOOD and comfortable and it fits perfectly ♥ When my mum came for visit she liked the dress so much that I had to order one for her as well :D ha ha

Here's how I wear it !
It matches perfectly with my knitted "Restless Nostalgia" shawl when it gets colder in the evening ♥

I hope you're all doing fine !
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Zakynthos 2017

Hi, my dear readers ♥

I finally got around to put together post about this year's big adventure :)
After spending holidays in various pretty cities around Europe in the last few years, we decided for a change this year and have a "normal" lazy, sunny holidays at the beach.

It sounds almost weird from me, doesn't it? We both haven't been to lazy beach holidays since our teenage years and back then it was pretty boring week or two with our parents, lying at the beach, reading book, getting fried on the sun and most importantly - endless uncomfortable hours in car travelling to get there.

So we decided to spend summer beach holidays the way we like it ! We picked Greece as our destination and chose Zakynthos island as the perfect place for us. At first I planned to go really stereotypical and stay at hotel with breakfast, private beach and everything, but then we discovered Lithies organic farm on Airbnb and hotels suddenly looked boring and dull :D

As for the travel - we took a flight from Prague, which departed ONLY totally incredibly early time - something like 6 in the morning or even sooner ?! Which was ugh... I decided to not go to sleep at all, so in the end I was awake for more than 26 hours, which was... ha ha... fun :D but I survived !

The Lithies houses are  BEAUTIFUL ♥ We had a lovely house with red door and two floors, with view on sea and everyday cat visits at the porch :) The owner of the whole farm is an incredibly kind woman and her son who are also running a taverna which serves dishes made from home-grown vegetables *o* We were having a dinner there every day for the whole week and I came home much heavier than I left :D ha ha (actually Greek food was one of the main reasons why we picked this destination)

We didn't spend the whole week only laying at beach and sunbathing, but we also made some trips around island and one hike on top of the highest mountain with monastery (or what is left of it). 

I have to say that this one week on Zakynthos changed my mind about lazy beach holidays and I actually miss it quite a lot and hope we will come back soon ♥

I will not bother you with tourist "here I am in my swimsuit at the beach" photos (I don't even have any except from a few in my phone :D), but here are some nice moments I captured through the week ♪ 

Best thing ever ? Lemons growing everywhere like apples ! 

 our house ♥

dried out tiny salt lake :) 

Lithies taverna 

 our loot - the big olive oil bottle was a gift from the farm owner, made from olives grown there ♥ I got a lot of spices and I wanted to buy even more, but Honza was worried that guards at airport could think that I have a suitcase full of Marihuana :D

I bought this BEAUTIFUL (seriously, it's so pretty that it needs caps lock) tea cup and the cutest little ceramic studio just a few steps from our organic farm. The ceramic artist is such a kind and calm old guy with lazy ginger cat (he was definitelly not a muggle) and all of his work is inspired by sea ♥ I am absolutely in love with colours of the tea cup - it looks exactly like sea and beach from above ♥ Honza bought his first tile for his tile collection and I also got a ceramic seashell with small bead and made them into a necklace :)

I hope you're all doing fine ♪
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
