I have to say there's very little New Year's Eve-like festivities in this post. None of us is very keen on New Year's Eve so for several years now we have stayed in (and haven't regretted it once). This year we had a Harry Potter marathon going on so it was all very lovely and… Continue reading New Year’s Eve 2017.
My family have always been big on Christmas. One of our longest-standing traditions is having our Christmas tree up for as long as possible. Same with Christmas carols, really; I only ever stop listening to them when they start making me feel sad instead of jolly and excited. It seems wasteful to me to get… Continue reading Christmas 2017.
I have been counting down to Christmas for such a long time and it's still coming a little too quickly for me. I wish I could hit pause right now. But I can't and that's the way it's supposed to be, so it's all right I guess. 🙂 I spent my third Advent Sunday preparing… Continue reading Third Advent Sunday.
I am spending my second Advent Sunday in London so if you'd like some current photos, please head over to my Instagram. Luckily, I still have photos from my last December's trip to post here so here's the first part. First things first: breakfast right across the street from the Tower Ice Rink. Nothing I'd… Continue reading Walking in Greenwich.
V létě jsem Yves Rocher na otestování jejich nový Koncentrovaný sprchový gel. Poctivě jsem testovala tuhle malou zajímavost, abych se mohla podělit o svůj názor. Podstatou těchto 100ml balení je, že vydrží stejně, jako velké, 400ml balení, a tudíž je o to úspornější a ekologičtější. https://flic.kr/p/ZMFpAD https://flic.kr/p/213HJ9f Takže ve zkratce: - bála jsem se, aby… Continue reading Yves Rocher.
Happy first Advent Sunday! I firmly believe in seeking magic in the simplest things at any time of the year. To me, December is one of those months when it's usually no trouble at all. The air outside smells of ice and snow. The air inside is an infusion of evergreens, eucalyptus, candles and cinnamon.… Continue reading First Advent Sunday 2017.
Next Sunday is the first Advent Sunday. Is anyone else getting butterflies in their stomach? Because I definitely am. This past week, I used all my free time at lunch breaks to work on wrapping my presents. It used to be such a chore for me because I never seem to have got it quite… Continue reading 4 weeks to Christmas Eve.
As I'm putting together this post, I'm watching my second favourite version of A Christmas Carol (this is the Robert Zemeckis one, my all-time favourite being The Muppet Christmas Carol, of course), drinking tea and indulging in a couple of M&S festive biscuits (because I can never resist those tins - and the biscuits aren't… Continue reading 5 weeks to Christmas Eve.
This was supposed to be a 6 weeks to Christmas Eve post but I just couldn't make it yesterday. I spent the whole morning sitting at my computer and taking care of some Christmas shopping and my eyes were just way too tired afterwards. I should probably explain: I had a laser eye surgery last… Continue reading 6 weeks to Christmas.
Happy Sunday! Today it is 7 weeks to Christmas Eve. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am that it is November and I can finally go all out with my Christmas preparations. For the past few years I have been slowly moving towards simple, Nordic style with my decorations. I love looking… Continue reading 7 weeks to Christmas Eve.
