Future Memories

Last swimwear moment at our hotel.
 Magical sunsets.
Oasis at the Raleigh hotel.
 I was wearing Nasty Gal one-piece, Runwaydreamz shorts, Ray Ban aviators and Antipearle necklace.
 Dinner at the former villa of Gianni Versace.
The design district with a new addition: the Sphinx aka oversuzed Kate Moss by Marc Quinn.

Mondrian SoBe

 I've spent a few days (and hot nights! about that later) in Miami again and this time I and my boyfriend stayed at the Mondrian South Beach. Here is my short review of our stay:
Let's start on a positive note and say that the check-in was smooth and the size of our room was rather generous plus we had a kitchenette. You can also expect spacious bathrooms that feature one of my favorite labels, Malin and Goetz, toiletries. So far so good :). The pool area is overall a great space with my kind of vibe and it might be one of the reasons to choose this hotel for your stay. The pool is heated and you can actually enjoy your drink while in the pool and listen to electronic music and just chill. Sounds perfect... until you hit the pool bar. 
This is where the trouble starts, the pool bartender is not very friendly, American guests could probably even see her as rude. Little things like asking if you can have a glass of Chardonnay instead of sangria or other options as your welcome drink (clearly willing to pay the $1 difference in the prices of these drinks on the menu) and getting no as an answer can be annoying. Embrace yourself and get ready to be asked several times each morning/evening if you are a hotel guest by a not so bright hostess and do not dare to say anything else than "yes I am", otherwise expect a cold lecture from her bodyguard. 
Speaking of staff there is more, the housekeeping department can really let you down if you happen to find out that you don't have enough cotton pads to remove your make-up after you dance your feet off at a club and call them at 3AM desperate for their help. They do not carry "anything like that". Noted. Also if you happen to want to eat a yogurt in the morning make sure you steal a spoon from Whole Foods across the street because it can take up to 35 minutes to deliver a spoon. Oh and the smarter of you should definitely keep their car keys on them at all the times or hide them very well otherwise they will disappear and you will end up looking for them for hours only to come crying at the reception and finding out your keys "miraculously" appeared at the valet parking booth, which is extremely strange especially considering you did not use the valet parking for two days. 
Pros: design of the hotel, room size, food&drinks, pool area.
Cons: hotel management and staff. 
 V cervenci jsme si s pritelem opet zaleteli do Miami a tentokrat jsme si pro svuj pobyt vybrali Mondrian South Beach. Rada bych se tady s Vami podelila o svou recenzi tohoto hotelu:
Zacneme pozitivne a to tim, ze check-in probehl naprosto hladce, ubytovali jsme se ve velmi prostornem pokoji i s kuchynkou. Koupelny maji krasnou mozaiku, spoustu mista a jsou vybaveny produkty jedne z mych oblibenych znacek- Malin and Goetz. Az sem je to pohadka :). Prejdeme k bazenove casti, kterou povazuji celkove za povedenou a tamni atmosfera me bavi natolik, ze by to klidne mohl byt jeden z rozhodujicich faktoru pro vyber hotelu. Bazen je vyhrivany a muzete si ho uzivat i s drinkem, jen tak se zaposlouchat do elektornicke hudby a byt. Zni to skvele, dokud ovsem nedojde na bazenovy bar.
Presne tady se totiz dostavame k tem minusovym bodum. Barmanka nepatri k nejmilejsim a otravit Vas muzou i takove malickosti, jako je to, ze kdyz slusne pozadate, zda si muzete misto navrhovane sangrie a dalsich moznosti priplatit rozdil v cene (podle menu $1) a dat si Chardonnay jako welcome drink, dostane se vam jednoduche avsak negativni odpovedi. Pripravte se nekolikrat za rano ci vecer ukazkove odpovidat na otazku neprilis bystre hostesky, zda jste hotelovi hoste a neopovazujte se ji odseknout, nebo si vyslouzite studenou sprchu od bodyguarda. 
Celkove je personal dost problematicky a muze Vas hodne zklamat. Napriklad kdyz protancite noc a ve tri rano se zoufale domahate jejich pomoci, kdyz Vam dojdou odlicovaci tampony a potrebujete nutne dalsi, s klidem Vam muzou oznami, ze "nic takoveho" oni zkratka nevedou. Berte to, prosim, na vedomi. V pripade, ze si radi date rano jogurt, nezapomente se vybavit lzickou v Whole Foodsu pres ulici, protoze donaska lzice z kuchyne zde trva az 35 minut. Ti proziravejsi z Vas by si take meli velmi dobre uschovat klicky od auta, jinak se Vam muze lehce stat, ze stravite hodiny jejich hledanim a s brekem se dopravite na recepci a klicky se zatim uplne "zazracne" objevi v budce pro parkovace aut, prestoze jste treba dva dny uz valet parking nepouzili. 
Pro: design hotelu, prostorne pokoje, jidlo&piti a bazenova cast.
Proti: hotelovy management a personal.

Red and Black

IRO Paris top, Zara shorts and belt, Mango sandals, Prada sunglasses, Dior bag, Antipearle necklace, Givenchy cuff 
My favorite outfit for castings these days. I really like the combination of red and black in this outfit even though usually that combo comes across as too harsh it seems to work here for me. I have had these faux leather shorts from Zara for ages (6 years maybe?!) but they are still one of my go-to items and this IRO top I got during the sales at Saks made me really happy (the price especially). 
Muj oblibeny outfit na casting tento mesic. Mam hodne rada kombinaci cerne a cervene, ale vetsinou to pusobi moc tvrde, ale v tomhle pripade mam pocit, ze je to akorat. Tyhle sortky z neprave kuze mam uz brutalne dlouho (6 let asi?!), ale porad patri mezi takove ty "zachranne" kousky, ktere popadnu, kdyz se mi nechce slozite vymyslet, co na sebe. A tenhle IRO top jsem si poridila ve slevach v Saksu a udelal mi velkou radost (hlavne ta cena).

Just a Ferry Away

Zara tee, shorts from a market in Koh Samui, Ray Ban aviators, Birkenstock sandals
Last weekend was a holiday weekend and me and my boyfriend wanted to get out of the city but not go too far at the same time. We decided to take the train and ferry to Fire Island and walk over 10 miles while occasionally having a drink (or two...) at a bar. After all what are these celebration days for, right? It was a fun day and even though I wasn't wowed by the beaches because let's face it I've been to some pretty amazing ones I got just what I needed - the "out of the city" feeling. Let's be honest I love New York so much, however, sometimes you just feel like getting lost in the forest.  
Minuly vikend byl prodlouzeny o den volna diky oslave Dne nezavisloti a s pritelem jsme se rozhodli pondeli stravit mimo mesto. Nicmene nechtelo se nam nikam daleko a tak rozhodnuti padlo na Fire Island, ktery je vzdaleny jen hodinu vlakem a kratkou plavbu trajektem. Usli jsme pres patnact kilometru a obcas se zregenerovali drinkem (nebo dvema) v baru. No od ceho jsou tyhle svatky, ze :). Vylet byl super a ikdyz se neplanuji v nejblizsi dobe vratit, protoze tamni plaze me nijak neohromily, coz je celkem pochopitelne, protoze jsem uz videla hodne uzasnych plazi po celem svete, splnilo to svuj ucel a ja mela pocit, ze jsem "vypadla z mesta". Budme uprimni, ja New York opravdu miluju, ale nekdy se chcete proste ztratit v lese.

Red White and Blue

Zara shirt, IRO Paris jeans, Valentino bag, Gucci heels, Prada sunglasses
Just in time for the red, white and blue! (Just so you know my national flag - Czech actually has the same colors so lucky me :P.) I hope you are all having a fun long weekend and that you are as excited as I am about this summer. I already got my flight tickets sorted and I'm going to Europe for the whole August and I just can't wait. What do you all have planned?
Akorat vcas na svatek cervene, bile a modre aka Den nezavisloti. Je fajn, ze moje "vlastni" ceske vlajka ma ty stejne barvy :P. Doufam, ze si vsichni uzivate dlouhy vikend a ze jste stejne nadseni z tohoto leta jako ja (nebo jeste vic?). Taky jsem si uz koupila letenky a cely srpen budu v Evrope, uz se nemuzu dockat. Co mate v planu vy?

All That Jazz

Guess by Marciana slip dress, Zara hat, Antipearle ring
One of the many things I love about living in New York is that there's always so much going on. There's something for everybody. Seriously. Like jazz fans... This was my first time at the legendary Jazz Age Lawn Festival at Governor's Island but I think it's safe to say it wasn't my last. What an incredible event especially due to all the effort the attendees put into their costumes. It was so inspiring for me... I just stared at everybody and their absolutely perfect picnic set ups and thought to myself that I need to step up my game next time. Everybody from NY Magazine, the Gothamist, Town & Country, to even WWD covered this special event. Here's my favrite article.
Jedna z mnoha veci, kterou miluju na zivote v New Yorku je to, ze se tady porad neco deje. Kazdy si tady neco najde. Myslim to vazne. Treba i jazzovi fanousci... Tohle byla moje prvni navsteva legendarniho jazzoveho festivalu na Governor's ostrove a myslim, ze muzu s klidem rict, ze jsem to nebylo naposledy, co jsem se zucastnila. Byla to skvela akce, hlavne diky vsem navstevnikum, kteri venovali opravdu nemalou pozornost svym outfitum. Bylo to pro me hodne inspirujici, asi jsem dost nevybirave zirala na vsechny zucastnene a jejich absolutne perfektni piknikove sety a rikala jsem si, ze mam tedy hodne co dohanet do pristiho festivalu. Kazdy pocinaje NY magazine, pres The Gothamist, Town & Country az po WWD venovali tomuto specialnimu eventu clanek. Zde je jeden z mych oblibenych.

LA Diary

First morning and our breakfast at Rawberri.
One of the prettiest stores on Melrose Place - Isabel Marant.
I couldn't resist taking these pictures even though I'm clearly NOT made in LA :)
The walk of fame is like Times Sq - you go there once just to see and never return...
The reason why me and Tereza came to LA - Los Labios.
We squeezed this awesome (though light) hike into our schedule and it was worth it!
My friend Natalka took us to Abbot Kinney and introduced us to a crazy good ice cream shop so thank you again :).
I had an amazing time so thank you all!
