I am a year wiser. Again. Besides the awesome flower bouquet from my family I also got a Tiffany's ring from the T collection I've been eyeing for a while and these fun balloons. I wonder what is the appropriate age to get this excited about balloons on your birthday... :).
I hope you all had a great weekend!
Jsem o rok moudrejsi. Zase. Krome te uzasne kytice od rodiny, kterou jsem vam ukazala v minulem postu, jsem dostala prstynek od Tiffanyho z T kolekce a tyhle dokonale balonky. Premyslim, do jakeho veku je v poradku byt takhle nadsena z balonku k narozeninam... :).
Doufam, ze jste meli skvely vikend.

Jungle Flowers

My exotic bouquet is called the Flamingo
Apparently my mom  has a thing for the most unique flowers. This year she had a bouquet delivered to me from.... Ecuador! Yes you read that right. She was browsing the Internet in Prague, I was running around New York and these "jungle flowers" were getting some serious sun in Ecuador. How awesome is that! If you are thinking "oh no, she had flowers delivered on the plane, what a waste..." I have to say I buy local bouquets very often at the Union Sq market and I believe it's ok to have something extra special every now and then. Let's face it I can not buy bananas locally grown in New York state :)). Also Bougs claim that their farmers only cut what they sell, which I think is amazing. I hate to see so many flowers wasted, don't you? Anyways they have a subscription and I'm seriously thinking about trying it out because there's a very few things that make me happier than beautiful flowers (maybe new heels?!). 
Moje maminka ma evidentne talent na objevovani tech nejunikatnejsich kytic. Letos mi nechala k narozeninam poslat kytici... az z Equadoru! Ano, ctete spravne. Surfovala po internetu v Praze, ja jsem pobihala po New Yorku a tyhle "kytky z dzungle" se zatim slunily v Equadoru. Bomba! Pokud si zrovna rikate: "to snad ne, nechala si poslat kytky letadlem, takova skoda...", tak vas uklidnim, ze vetsinou si kupuji kvetiny od mistnich farmaru na trhu na Union square, ale verim, ze jednou za cas neni tak hrozne si doprat neco specialniho. Budme k sobe uprimni, tyhle banany si proste lokalne vypestovane ve state New York nekoupite :)). Dalsi plus vidim v tom, ze firma Bougs slibuje, ze farmari, se kterymi spolupracuji, utrhnou opravdu jen to, co prodaji a to je super. Taky tak nesnasite vyhozene kytky v kosi? Priznam se, ze kdyz jsem si prosla jejich web a videla, ze maji predplatne, zacala jsem o tom vazne uvazovat, protoze existuje opravdu jen malo veci, ktere mi udelaji vetsi radost nez krasna kytice (mozna nove lodicky?!). 

Phnom Penh Diary

The Royal palace
 Apsara dancers
The Central Market inside a beautiful Art Deco building
 Typical flower arrangements
A late tuk tuk drive
Our hotel
Here's my first post about Cambodia. Finally. I took a while to go through all the photos because you know it was Christmas and New Year's and life happened. Today I'm sitting at my New York's apartment back from Europe and it is snowing and just plain ugly outside so it is perfect to just lounge around and do some work on my notebook.
All of these photos are from our first stop Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. I was surprised by how many expats live in Cambodia and one of the expats we met while there was an American guy who owns a shop with records and posters. If you are like me - always on a hunt for a special souvenir this shop/gallery Space Four Zero is for you. I got one of the posters with Sticky Fingers - a rock band based in here. Seriously who can say they have a poster with a local band from Cambodia!
 Having a drink at the Elephant bar at the Raffles hotel is a must
Konecne se s vami podelim o prvni clanek o Kambodzi. Trvalo mi hodne dlouho se vsemi fotkami prokousat a samozrejme byly Vanoce, Silvestr a tak nejak se udal zivot. Nicmene dnes sedim uz zpet z Evropy na svem gauci v New Yorku a venku snezi a je opravdu nehezky zatazeno, takze vlastne idealni stav na to, abych se povalovala doma s notebookem na kline a udelala alespon nejakou praci. 
Vsechny fotky, ktere s vami dnes sdilim, jsou z nasi prvni zastavky - hlavniho mesta Phnom Penh. Byla jsem dost prekvapena mnozstvim expatu, ktere jsem tam nahodou potkali a jednim z nich byl i American, ktery vlastni opravdu unikatni obchod s deskami a plakaty. Pokud jste alespon trochu jako ja a vzdy hledate netradicni suvenyr, tak tenhle shop/galerie Space Four Zero bude neco pro vas. Odnesla jsem si jeden z plakatu s mistni rockovou kapelou Sticky Fingers. No kdo to ma!

My Favorite Time of the Year

I hope you all had amazing holidays whatever you were doing. I personally cannot complain even a little bit because I was with my family in the fairy tale city that Prague becomes around this time of the year. Oh and I got some awesome presents too... but that is less important :).
Doufam, ze jste si vsichni uzili svatky, at uz jste delali cokoliv. Ja osobne si vubec nemuzu stezovat, protoze se mi opet povedlo byt se svoji rodinou v pohadkovem meste, jakym se Praha stane kazdy rok na Vanoce. Jo a dostala jsem par uzasnych darku... ale to neni to nejdulezitejsi :).

Stocking Stuffers

Stocking stuffers
Christmas is coming up so fast that I decided to throw in one more wishlist before my photo diary from Cambodia. Just in case somebody still hasn't decided what to give to their loved ones... ;) (like me maybe?!) I woke up this morning already thinking of Prague and all the things I cannot wait to do like bake the Christmas cookies with my mom.
 Vanoce se blizi tak rychle, ze jsem se rozhodla vam na blog dat jeste jeden wishlist pred foto denikem z Kambodzi. Jen pro pripad, ze by nekteri z vas stale premysleli, co dat svym blizkym... ;) (jako treba mne?!) Dnes rano jsem se probudila a myslela na Prahu a na vsechny cinnosti, na ktere se uz nemuzu dockat, jako napriklad peceni rohlicku s maminkou.

Let me share this very quick outfit post with you before I roll in all the vacation photos. I just came back from a trip to Asia (Cambodia, Vietnam and Hong Kong to be precise) and I hope you are ready to see some temples and sight seeing pictures. 
Chci se s vami dnes jeste rychle podelit o tenhle outfit, nez vas zavalim fotkami z moji dovolene v Asii (Kambodze, Vietnamu a Hong Kongu, abych to upresnila) a doufam, ze jste ready na spoustu fotek z chramu a pamatek.

Beauty Wishlist

Beauty wishlist
These are some of the products I'd like to try in the near future. What is the one thing you have recently discovered and loved? I'd appreciate some tips :). I basically go after anything that has salt, coffee, coconut or grapefruit in it...
I have read some pretty convincing reviews on the Sisley Youth treatment and I think I'm going to spend the little fortune (yes $200 is a fortune to me if it comes to skincare!) on it because I bought their eye mask last year and it's been my favorite thing since day one and the good news is that I'm still on my first tube so it lasts a long time.
Tyhle produkty bych rada vyzkousela co nejdrive. Je nejaky produkt ktery jste objevili nedavno a nedate na nej dopustit? Budu rada za vase tipy :). Ja jdu po vsem, co ma v sobe sul, kavove boby, kokos nebo grepy...
Cetla jsem velmi presvedciva doporuceni na vyse zmineny Sisley Youth novinku a rozhodla jsem se, ze ho ji asi vyzkousim i za cenu maleho jmeni (ano, dat 4.500Kc za kosmetiku je podle me male jmeni), protoze jsem si loni poridila jejich masku na oci a od prvniho dne jsem z ni byla naprosto nadsena a navic doted pouzivam tu prvni tubu, takze dlouho vydrzi. 

High Waisted Dreams

H&M high waisted denim, Forever 21 scarf and tee, Balenciaga leather, Antipearle necklace, Converse sneakers
I couldn't resist the high-waisted denim trend but I didn't want to invest too much (money and effort) into it so I first tried Asos, which didn't work - I have to admit I'm not a good online shopper. I gave it a second try at the good old H&M and voila here we go. Also this was the first time in a long time that I wore sneakers. To be precise the only pair of sneakers I own, the white Converse ones. 
I just left my Balenciaga with my mom who is going to have the lining exchanged so I'll tell you where to have your leather jacket updated if it goes well. Cross your fingers for me :).
Nemohla jsem to vydrzet a nezkusit trend dzinu s vysokym pasem, ale nechtelo se mi do nej prilis investovat (ani moc energie, ani moc penez), tak jsem vyzkousela Asos, ale tam mi ani jedny nesedly - musim se priznat, ze nejsem dobra online shopaholicka. Dala jsem tomu nakonec druhou sanci ve starem dobrem H&M a voila mam ten perfektni par dzinu. Taky si vsimnete, ze mam na sobe po sto letech tenisky a to ten jediny par, ktery vlastnim, bile Conversky.
Zrovna jsem nechala svoji Balenciaga bundu u maminky, aby mi u ni nechala vymenit podsivku, tak pokud to dobre dopadne, napisu vam, kde si muzete nechat "refreshnout" svoje kozene bundicky. Drzte mi palce :).

Can You Name the Artist

Some of my favorite art moments... the colder weather is the museum/gallery season for me so hopefully I get to see some amazing stuff this fall and winter.
Nektere z mych oblibenych "art momentu"... chladnejsi pocasi pro me vzdy znamena cas muzei a gakerii, tak snad se i tento podzim a zimu dockam nejakych skvelych vystav.

Gemma It Was

Balenciaga leather jacket, Valentino bag,  Joe's jeans, Forever 21 tee, Ray Ban aviators, Gucci Webby sandalsAntipearle necklace
This was my Saturday brunch outfit. (I don't just go to brunch every weekend but this Saturday I had a morning shoot so that worked out perfectly.) I hate to say it but I don't mind some color these days... so I paired my current favorites - Gucci Webby sandals with Valentino studded bag because red is the best for adding a pop of color. I am trying to get the most out of this weather and enjoy bare feet till I can because I'm sure there will be enough cold days to wear boots. 
Tohle byl muj sobotni outfit na brunch. (Nechodim na brunche kazdy vikend, ale tuhle sobotu jsem mela rano foceni a nez jsme skoncili, byl tak akorat cas na brunch.) Nerada se k tomu priznavam, ale v posledni dobe mi nevadi barvy, takze jsem zkombinovala svoje momentalne nejoblibenejsi kousky - Gucci Webby sandalky s Valentino kabelkou, protoze kdyz uz chcete dodat barvu svemu outfitu, podle me neni nic lepsiho nez cervena. Snazim se jeste uzit dny, kdy se daji nosit sandale, protoze je mi jasne, ze tech zimnich dni v kozackach bude mnohem vic, nez bych si prala.
