Let me update you on what happened last week. I know all posts are tiny bit delayed but still better to post them later than never, right? And especially this one really brings pleasure to my heart.
As one of my friends commented on my FB pic of me and my 24.5 b-day cake: I'm nuts... but in a good way. So yeah. He was absolutely right. Even my cousin liked that comment and she's not that active on my wall - lol. I'm nuts and persuaded my girlfriends to celebrate with me my 24.5 b-day! We had naturally a theme party: Pretty in Pink (as you can get from all pink photos around).
Everything was pink! Dresses. Lipsticks. Flowers. Nails. Champagne. You name it! Girls did a pretty good job. And honestly to my surprise I also got 24.5 b-day present!!!!! Couldn't be happier!! New Pandora charm on my wrist - yaay. A little tiara - because as they explained, I am like a princess. Oh well, haven't realized but I am not arguing there might be something about it for sure! :)
Oh and we had cakes!!! I baked a carrot cake and decorated it with m&m s. And Lucka and Petra brought a SUPER chocolate cake!!! And when I am writing SUPER imagine SUPER squared haha.
THANK YOU GIRLS!
And after this little pre-party at my place we were more than ready to hit the bar and later on a club. All pretty in pink from head to toes. And all a bit tipsy from pink champagne. Frankly the evening didn't really turned out as we planned and imagined. Mostly because I got a beer shower in the end. But nothing is perfect. And it was never supposed to be perfect. Not even because I am princess. The biggest perfection for me is that I have all those crazy girls around me who were crazy enough to come, dress up and celebrate and that's more than perfect! So thank you once again and next celebration in half a year :)))
with love, Lenka

Hello all of you happy faces!
It's Friday - finally - and I am in Vienna (again!). Kinda wish it was some other city now, but I am super happy, 'cos I am about to meet up with my long time friends, Polona and Bojan, very very soon! In fact, I believe that Polona is already on her way while I am writing those lines from Starbucks, where I took myself on a proper Valentine's date. Just me and me! Who else do we need? LOL
Being in Vienna, I am part of the Winter School of Methods and Techniques, because my mentor decided that it's never enough of methodology. BUT besides all of those software statistic courses and methodology courses, what I am really trying to embrace is the love for myself and the others. Not only trying to be my best friend but also to be a best friend for others. To be there for them when needed, to offer a valuable advice and always have something kind and nice to say.
Valentine's day is not only for couples! It's for EVERYONE WHO'S IN LOVE WITH LIFE!! That's how I look at this day and that's how I do celebrate it. With friends and coffee I love in a city I adore!
How about you? What are your stereotypes and cliches when speaking of the Day of Love? Share with me :)
PS: This is the view at the Votivkirche in Vienna, I was having lunch just nearby and was mesmerized by it!

Quite honestly I didn't even know about the highlighter at all - let's say till two weeks ago. I discovered this beauty essential thanks to my roommate Katka, who found a girl on youtube, who was using it as the final touch to her already perfect make-up and we both fell in love with it.
Later on I discovered that my friend Petra, who is a beauty freak, naturally uses it as well. Well hello Lenka, it's already 2014 - find yourself a highlighter because sooner or later you're gonna be the last person around walking in the streets of Prague only with your blush!!! Totally exaggerated, but still.
So I got on search and between interviews for several jobs positions I always found myself close to some beauty shop where I could try those highlighters and fix my make-up. Petra also told me to go and try Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick - so I went, tried and deeply fell in love. Still wearing it on my cheeks, because it's so damn beautiful.
But here comes the question, for all of you lovely ladies reading this. Do you use a highlighter? And if yes, which one? Because now I am deciding and having my first big dilemma in this year: Shall I go for Bobbi Brown or for a little bit cheaper version of MAC Finishing Touch?
Let me know your thoughts, they will be fully appreciated!
PS: As you can see I put together my very first Polyvore collage. Well excuse me - it's not perfect :)

I know, it's 25th January - one month after x-mas and 11 months till x-mas and exactly 25 days of the new year. And yes, I finally bought myself an agenda for 2014. Hurray!
Agenda is always important to me and I might be the last one person alive who still prefers to write down all the tasks I need to do, then stick some notes over it and highlight important meetings. Just the glitter on top of it is the only thing missing.
So naturally, it was a long decision process. I was considering Moleskin (all time classic, but a little bit boring to me) and Papelote (a Czech brand with the similar inside design but a lot more playful outside design) and in the end I've decided to support regional business and went for this blue-purple stripped one from Papelote.
How about you? I'm sure you all probably already have agendas, but what are your criteria (of you have one)? Share and love :)

I believe that by now almost everyone knows about my food addiction. To be more precise: breakfast / brunch addiction. You all also know that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and we should eat breakfast like a king, lunches like a prince and dinner like a pauper. This is a tricky one, as sometimes I eat breakfast like a king, lunch like a king and dinner like a double king. Buy hey, I know this happens to you as well - especially when surrounded by good company.
So here are my reasons why I love to eat breakfast outside and not alone at the dining table in my apartment.
- I get to meet my friends the very first thing in the morning. What could be possibly better? Just the pure motivation of seeing their faces makes me "jump" out of the bed.
- And when you have such a wonderful start of the day, the day itself just must be good!
- I can chose whatever I'd like and don't have to think whether I did grocery shopping the other evening. Or whether I have enough milk in the fridge or more than one egg - haha. Simply anything!!!
- It's connected with exercise a.k.a. I have to walk to the place - which is more or less almost like a morning jog. So it's even healthy for me to take breakfast outside! See?
- And the most important one: I don't have to do the dishes afterwards!
How about you? What are your reasons to take breakfast outside? Or maybe the reasons why you prefer to take breakfast at home? Besides the only advantage and that is: breakfast in pajamas! Bulletproof.
