Phnom Penh Diary

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!

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

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.

Brunch attire

Zara coat, top and belt, IRO jeans, Prada oversized clutch, Acne boots
Hello Sunday brunches! I've missed you... The return of fall made me want to actually spend time in restaurants in the early afternoons especially when it's a heated open air restaurant on Mercer street featuring a live jazz performance. If you like Mediterranean food (their Halloumi cheese in grape leaves is AMAZING) and want to feel like you are doing something a bit more special than the usual brunch bunch I definitely recommend this place. Antique Garage is a good spot for both brunches and dinners. Live jazz every Saturday and Sunday from 1:30pm.
Cau nedelni brunche! Chybely jste my... Navrat chladneho podzimu me opet naladil na vysedavani po restauracich. Idealne pokud je neco po poledni, zhne nade mnou vyhrivac a sedim vlastne uprostred Mercer ulice (v Soho) a k tomu si uzivam live jazzovou hudbu. Pokud mate radi stredomorskou kuchyni (jejich Halloumi syr ve vinnych listech je neprekonatelny) a chcete neco vyjimecneho a neokoukaneho, zkuste tohle misto. Antique Garage je skvele misto jak na brunch tak i na veceri. Kazdou sobotu a nedeli od 13:30 i s jazzem.
Cheers!

Tied Up

Zara shirt, All Saints denim shorts, Antipearle jewelry

This was basically my summer uniform. Even worse...most of the times I wore these denim shorts with a plain white V-neck. I spent my summer all casual but now I'm ready for some serious fall fashion.
Tohle byla moje letni uniforma. Vlastne to bylo jeste horsi... vetsinu casu jsem tyhle dzinove sortky nosila s obycejnym bilym trickem do vecka. Moje leto bylo ve znameni "casual", ale ted se uz nemuzu dockat nejakych zasadnich podzimnich outfitu.
