Rainy Days

Hi, my dear readers ♥

At the beginning of June we had a visit of our friends for the whole weekend ♪ We did a lot of sight-seeing around Munich and got totally drenched in rain (or at least me) ... at that time it was raining two weeks in a row already?!
What a terrible start of summer this year in Germany >_<

And this is what I was wearing ♪
Rain sucks, but at least you can do some layering !

I think PlazmaLab lately became my super-favourite brand... everything is ethical, original, made by young artists, amazing, beautiful, comfy...AND I WANT TO BUY ALL OF IT !





neckwarmer - hand-knitted by me
necklace - DraculaClothing
dress - PlazmaLab
tote bag - Mono merchandise
shoes - Vagabond


We saw a lot of interresting things and places on that day, but I think the most bizzare sight in the middle of Munich is Eisbach Wave - it's a wave on an artificial stream which is running through English garden and surfers can be seen there all the time - in every weather, in every season... it's pretty rare for someone from middle Europe, so I'm always mesmerized by their skills *o*

Mittelaltertage Haar

Hi, my dear readers ♥

This year the weather during spring was so bad - especially on weekends - that we visited only ONE medieval fair so far =( 
We spontaneously went to take a look at Mittelatertage Haar, which is almost still in Munich... so we didn't have to travel far away in case of the sudden change of weather.
It was unexpectedly sunny Sunday, so we decided to give it a try ♪

And it was great *o*
A huge field, full of shops and people wearing costumes ! There was also live music and delicious mead :3


(quite a nice decoration for Huffelpuff common room, I think) 




I didn't plan to buy anything, but then I saw a stand with handspun yarn...asked the ladies if I can get a photo... we started to talk... and yeah, I bought a skein of Lama yarn in beautiful brown colour ♥
I´m already knitting a bolero from it ! It's called "Shelob" and the pattern is by amazing ffrench ♪ I wanted to make something I will be able to wear on historical festivals and I think this will be perfect... and of course the LOTR-themed name is a nice bonus =D



I wasn't thinking much about the outfit - I just wanted to wear this beautiful skirt and then matched  with it some random accessories ♪




oh no, these glasses again =D !


Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
(it's 30°C in Bayern today >_< eek! I want to go swimming in the lake !)

SPROUT

Hi, my dear readers ♥


Today I want to show you my mori outfit with the most amazing beret I own =D
THE SPROUT BERET


 I'm wearing it everytime it's a bit colder ever since dear Mim oredered it for me from TaoBao ♥
But now I finally put together a complete mori outfit !

I found out that it matches perfectly with this super-cute mori top I found in Pick'n'Weight... and the top looks best worn with this red dress which I have for ages in my wardrobe and used it just for harness photos, because in combination with my red hair it's just... too much red =D





I wore this outfit on one half-sunny/half-rainy day in May.
We went to city centre to look around shops and I bought two new pairs of sunglasses - two - because I couldn't decide which one is better =D ha ha
We had to wear them right away !


We also discovered a huge Italian (super)market and got a new bottle of Aceto Balsamico di Modena (nom - best thing you can put on salad!). I showed Honza the Japanese shop I visited with lolitas last time, but they didn't have much stuff so we just bought this matcha...cake?


When the rain started we went to see a free exhibition of 100 years of Leica photography. It was really interresting *o* There was a lot of amazing and moving photos... for example - original (!) of this photo by Nick Ut... I have goosebumps everytime I see it ...

After we saw everything on the exhibition, the rain was pouring so we quickly went to underground station and headed home - good thing I had the sprout on my head to save me from rain ! =)


Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

Reyna & Mystery Socks

Hi, my dear readers ♥

I managed to finish quite a lot of knitting projects in April, probably because I didn't have proper internet connection =D

The first one is Reyna shawl - pattern by Noora Laivola, which was a KAL (knit along) of Vlněné Sestry, I decided to participate even though I didn't have time to buy a yarn from VS (if I did I could win a voucher). 
So I bought a beautiful Malabrigo Sock in Lotus colorway in an amazing yarn shop Die Mercerie and made this simple, but nice shawl for my mum's birthday ♪





I highly recommend this pattern for all beginners, because it's really easy, fun to knit and you need just one skein of Malabrigo Sock... or any other Sock weight yarn which has more than 340cm =)

The second April project were socks !
Sock knitting was a topic of the month on Czech FB knitting group and I decided to make a pair as well... this time some fancy pattern =D
I chose Mystery Sock '09 by Kirsten Kapur and bought a nice orange yarn from Wolle Rödel ♪
It looked pretty complicated at the beginning, but then I got into it and it was actually pretty easy to knit =D 
I´m so happy about the result !




Some people asked me if it's not a waste of time to make such a pretty pair of socks and then wear them only at home...
...and I was like: "Who says I'm going to wear them at home ?" =D
Here's an outfit !




 Koblížek necklace by Saki's Forestglade Jewelry

this is what's really happening when I'm taking outfit photos =D

best socks ever !

Currently I'm working on "Spark of Grey" shawl by Melanie Berg and I just finished Han's 
speaking about dear Han - she has a new super-cool website about knitting, crochet, spinning, yarn, sheep,...and much more =D TAKE A LOOK !

Have a beautiful day, everyone !

DIY harem pants + botanical garden

Hi, my dear readers ♥

Today I want show you two things - first - a pair of DIY harem pants I made from a tie-dyed fabric and second - some pretty photos I took in Nymphenburg botanical garden ♥

Let's start with these pants !
When I was tie-dyeing last time I added in the cauldron big piece of grey cotton fabric which I bought for lolita skirts, but then I found out it has stains so it was useless for that purpose... I had no idea what will I made of it, until few months later I stumbled upon this simple pattern on Pinterest ♪

https://cz.pinterest.com/pin/434597432767166501/
I didn't have enough fabric for the belt, so I just made a small tunnel for a thin elastic band on top of pants =) I also had some problems with holes for feet, but nah...somehow I made it and it's fine =D ha ha
I'm really happy with the result ♥
They're super-comfy and match perfectly with mori outfits !





I wore this on one of the few beautiful May days. We decided to visit botanical garden of Nymphenburg castle, which is just a few kilometers on bike from our new home ♪
The garden is beautiful ! Even though there is no japanese corner... BUT instead there is an Alpine rock-garden which makes my mountains-loving heart happy ♥

We were there just on time for blooming tulips *o* SO MANY COLOURS ! (I took a lot of photos with my lomo ...)









I hope you're all enjoying summer !
It's finally warm in Bayern wheeeeee *o*

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥

LOMO 08

Hi, my dear readers ♥

After some time my lomography photos are back again ♪
This film has some really nostalgic photos for me... homes where are not living in anymore, summer memories from the last year and beautiful autumn trees ...



These two photos are really special - the last pictures I took in a place where I grew up and lived for more than 20 years of my life, few moths before my parents sold it... the first photo is view from my room and the second one is a kitchen window...




Befreiungshalle Kelheim ...our first adventure from last summer ♪ 
(I desperetaly need to go on a hike, hopefuly the weather will finally start to act like summer >_<)


Mountains, Gandalf ! Mountains ! ♥





This photo is like a vision from my mind which I've been returning to from time to time when I need to calm my thoughts...
I remember when I was standing there I though "this is the most beautiful place I've ever been to in my whole life" it's like something from my dreams...really =D I love mountains so damn much ♥



these three look like old postcards =)


...and autumn memories from Ingolstadt ♪
(the path I was walking everyday with my dog... *NOSTALGIA AGAIN*)




Now that I look at these photos I see how much changed in the past year !
I don't mind, changes are good, because there is always something new awaiting ♪

Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
