I have started this year very fresh, really wanting to focus on things that actually make me happy. Cooking and baking definitely fall into that area! Since I was a little girl, the kitchen has… More
So it happened, that I have been nominated by wonderful Alexa Ceza for The Liebster Award. Like, I don´t even know how that happened, but I love it. A huge thank you for you Alexa and her post. For all the new bloggers, this is an opportunity to feel a bit more like you belong there. Like we are all in it together.
If you know me or just follow my Instagram you would know, I am crazy about tea! Every time I go back home to see my family in the Czech Republic my mum would buy me tons of boxes of my favs teas and filled my suitcase with them completely!
I have tea for everything! I have maroon red fruit tea for cosy evenings in, green tea with pineapple for summer weekend mornings, rosehip tea full of vitamin C for autumn colds and so on and on…
As mentioned in my previous post My 25th Birthday I did celebrate my birthday here in Brighton. And it was the first time I have not been with my family. Yes, I was sad, obviously. I missed blowing candles on a cake and having that secret wish on my mind. Yes, I missed my beautiful dog helping with opening my presents. But, for the first time, I felt like I am celebrating my birthday like a grown-up woman more than a little girl.
Anyway, as much as I love my life here in the U.K. on the beach, I do still miss woods and mountains I grew up around in my homeland. So, I have decided to share with you a little gallery of snaps I took in September a year ago.

A week ago on Saturday, I turned 25. That´s big one. I mean, no I still do not think about marriage, children or getting a mortgage. Like most of those, I know in my age. I think about, where my next travel adventure will be and how to tick another line in my bucket list.
And I also think about what I have learnt in 25 years of life.
- Only love is sometimes just not enough. People need so much more. Trust, honesty and care. Ability to compromise and space to grow. Sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, it will never be enough. Don´t hurt yourself. Have your heart open, but choose wisely. And always love yourself!
- People come and people go. And that´s okay! I used to be upset a lot about losing friends. It is so hard to make new friends once you are grown up. But I have learnt that there is no need to be upset about it. You move on with your life, your interests change, you choose different life paths and that´s okay. It doesn´t mean you do not care about each other anymore.
- Trying to fit in or look the same like everyone else is a waste of time. Only go to a gym to be healthy and if you find it fun. Not because of all the butt pictures on Instagram. If you wanna cut your hair really short, just do it! Fancy a green lipstick? Wear it!
I am a big Urban Decay fan, but when this palette came out I thought I am going to save my money. But then I saw it in a shop and tried it and well, fell in love with it. This simple it is.
I have moved to England almost three years ago and I must say I do know it here better than I know my home place. But there is still so much to discover. I am a total junkie when it comes to something natural. A hundred years old tree, the very first blooming flowers in spring, the feel of sea waves on your feet or tiny bees collecting sweet nectar.
Summer in England can be pretty hot (Yes, they do have summer here.). But no, it does not last long. So if you wake up on your day off work and you see the sun shining on you through the window, you have to use it. It might just be gone as quickly as it came.

This is super easy to cook and the orange makes the chicken taste fresh and juicy.

I do attach to places a lot. Usually because of the people. When I moved over here to the UK lots of little things in my live were these “first-time” pleasures. The first date, first time making a friend “from scratch”, first time moving to a share house… And every single place, bar, a town I have visited felt all new and ready to make memories.
Last Saturday I went to a cafe here in a tiny, tiny town I live, where I haven´t been over a year. It was called different, decoration was different, but the feeling remained.
Waiters are really sweet, food is nice and fresh, all home cooked… and all those cakes! If you are passing by, this place is worth giving up few minute in your busy lives.
