Merry Christmas to all of you. Although I am in the laziest Christmas mood I had to wish you lovely holidays. Turkey is almost ready and yesterday we had Czech Christmas dinner. So we get to celebrate twice. I hope you are having the best time ever and all your dreams came through this Christmas.

Enjoy every moment of  this peaceful holiday season.

Vesele Vanoce vsem. I kdyz mam tu nejlinejsi Vanocni naladu, chtela jsem vam poprat krasne svatky. Akorat pecu krocana, sunku a vse kolem a vcera byla samozrejme ryba a salat. Docela se mam, ze muzu slavit dvakrat, i kdyz toho vareni je opravdu hodne.

Pevne doufam, ze se vsem splnily veskera prani a uzivate si tyto krasne svatky pohody

Favourite Corner in the house

3

I am sure we all have favourite spots in our houses where we love to spend time and we appreciate the comfort and the design. Mine is actually brand new as I finally got a great and comfortable armchair for nursing. Yes, finally.

I wanted one for such a long time and I finally found it on DFS. It has been a journey though. I was deciding also in between this DFS armchair and this armchair.  In the end it was the colour scheme and the measurements that helped me to decide.

Since Liam’s nursery is too small to fit anything else in there I decided to leave it in our bedroom. It was the best decision ever. This chair turned out to be the most multifunctional piece in my house and I totally love it. I use it for those moments when I want to watch something. I work whilst sitting in this chair, use it for shooting products for my blog or Instagram or leaving my handbag on it when I come from somewhere (yes guilty of that).  That already ticks so many boxes.

And I actually realised that it is so important to really think about what you are getting. In the past I would just do quick decisions and went for that quick and cheap alternative but moving forward I am sticking to clever and smart purchases. That could actually be my New Year’s resolution. As after getting this gorgeous chair I found out that it is a long term investment. It is such a beautiful piece and I know when we move in future it will always have some great spot in our new home.

So how about you and buying things for your home?

Mate svoje oblibene misto u vas doma? Ja ano ale je teda docela nove. Konecne jsem si po tak dlouhe dobe poridila kreslo na kojeni. Neni teda specialni na kojeni, ale vzdy se mi libila myslenka hezkeho kresla, kde bych travila klidne chvile s miminkem. 

A konecne jsem si vybrala tohle krasne kreslo a nelituju. Dokonce se z nej stalo nejvice pouzivane kreslo u nas doma. Nejen ze v nem kojim, ci krmim Liama, ale cteme mu v nem pohadky pred spanim, divam se v nem na Netflix a taky si do nej rada sednu, kdyz pracuju a pisu na blog. A v neposledni rade se z nej stal odkladac na kabelky (ano priznavam se). Zkratka jsem se do nej zamilovala. 

Moje drivejsi nakupovani nabytku bylo spise o cene, ale v posledni dobe jsem se opravdu polepsila a porizovala veci, ktere vydrzi a jsou lepsi investici. Clovek nechce vkrocit domu a zjistit, ze ma vse z Ikei. Drive kdyz jsme si pronajimali byty, tak Ikea to vzdy resila, ale pomalu uz v byte mame vse vymenene a investujeme do veci, ktere nam vydrzi i kdyz se jednou prestehujeme. Bude to takove moje predsevzeti a to nakupovat nabytek a veci do bytu s rozumem a s ohledem na budoucnost.

A jak to mate vy?

Home Decor and Nesting for new mums

1

I clearly remember when I was pregnant that the closer to the due date I was, the more frustrated I got because of our flat. I felt nothing was ready and I felt I need to finish things, change them, improve and welcome baby Liam to a stunning new clean home. Then I found out it is an actual thing called Nesting. Not all women have to go through that but there are loads that experience this urge to improve their homes.

Well, no wonder. Firstly your life will change massively and you will probably spend more time home than ever and secondly your priorities will change and there is a new addition to your family. That means more things from clothes to toys and also you will have more and more visitors. The entire life as you knew it will be different and even if you want it or not you have to adjust things in your home.

I am huge fan of decor and especially when it is chic and practical at the same time. If you are a new mum or mum to be you have to think about practicality as well as design and they can go hand in hand. And if you live in a smaller flat like me you have to think about furniture and decor even more. So I thought about what would I advice any new or mum to be to get for their homes. We all have different views but I would go for these 5 items.

Top 5 picks to make life of a mum comfortable, easy and keep the touch luxury

  1. Comfortable bed with storage and bonus points for stunning design – You will spend lot of time in bed at least first few weeks so make sure your choice is the best. You will also lack sleep for the few months so the right choice of bed is crucial to make those few hours of sleep very comfortable.
  2. Day bed for your spare room or nursery – That is one of the first things I got for my house and there are so many reasons for that. Firstly you and your partner may need to sleep in separate rooms (not all men want to end up tired at work every day). Secondly you may use it for yourself when you are starting to teach baby to sleep in their own room. Thirdly you can use it for guests that come to your place. And if you chose a day bed with storage you can use it for bedding, toys, clothes or anything really. And I know few of my friends then ended up using it for kids when they grew up as their bed for the bedroom. What a great investment.
  3. Foot Stool ideally with storage – Imagine that you have to nurse every two to three hours in average. Who would not like a bit of comfort whilst doing it and what better way to do it than with your feet up.
  4. Comfortable chair for nursing and bonus points if it looks great – I have been looking for a nice feature chair that I could use as a nursing chair for a long time. We all have different tastes but I tend to find the actual nursing chairs not that great. So why not to go for a lovely design and comfortable chair and it is another excuse how to bring a lovely piece to your family home.
  5. Dining table and ideally extendable – With a new arrival you will probably have to shift your life a bit. It can mean that you will host dinners instead of going out or you have visitors and family over for lunch. So a lovely dining table where you can fit few people is a key for me. And if it is extendable you do not need to worry if you have have few more guests.

Whatever your priorities are we all want to make sure we make family life happy, comfortable and easy. So make sure that your next home purchase is the right one for you.

Pamatuju si, ze kdyz jsem byla tehotna, ze cim vice se blizil termin porodu tak tim vice jsem stresovala ohledne naseho bytu. Manzel si vzdy chce delat vse sam a dopada to tak, ze ziju permanentne v prachu a obklopena naradim ( a to si nedelam srandu). A o to vic jsem snila o tom, ze privedu Liama domu do krasneho, utulneho cisteho bytu. Chtela jsem vse menit a upravovat. S uklidem mi pomohla maminka, ale doted si preju si poridit par novych kousku domu, ktere by se mi hodily vice nez drive. A ono je to vlastne i normalni ukaz u zen v ocekavani tzv. Nesting, ze maji potrebu upravovat svuj dum, uklizet, vylepsovat apod. 

Nektere veci jsem si jiz splnila a nektere jsou stale na mem wish listu. Clovek si az pozdeji uvedomi, ze zivot se mu trosku zmeni. Neni to nic strasneho, ale jsou to veci jako potreba vice ulozneho prostoru, chcete pohodli a zaroven i hezke veci, protoze doma travite s ditetem jako matka vice casu. Neni nad to si poridit hezke a prakticke veci a ktere kousky jsou teda podle mne dobre? Vetsina z toho vychazi hlavne z faktu, ze ziju v mensim byte, ktery ma dve loznice, obyvaci pokoj a kuchyn, takze o nakupuju nabytku musim premyslet dvounasob. 

  1. Dobra a hezka postel idealne s uloznym prostorem. Prvnich par dni jsem stravila v posteli. Za prve po porodu vas vse boli, zvykate si a take hodne kojite a tak je skvele mit hezkou a pohodlnou postel a kdyz ma ulozny prostor tak je to nejlepsi varianta. 
  2. Rozkladaci denni postel tzv. day bed idealne s uloznym prostorem. To byla jedna z veci, kterou jsem poridila do vedlejsiho pokoje jeste pred narozenim Liama. Za prve ji muzu pouzivat ja az si bude zvykat na svuj pokojik, nebo tam muzeme spat i ted (kdyz se potrebuje manzel vyspat) a v neposledni rade slouzi jako postel pro hosty. Vybrala jsem rozkladaci s uloznym prostorem a pocitam s tim, ze v budoucnu muze slouzit i jako postel pro deti. 
  3. Stolicka/Lenoska pod nohy – V prumeru vas ceka kojeni kazde dve az tri hodiny a proc si u toho neudelat pohodli. Ja uz svou mam a ta ma ulozny prostor, ale pokud doma zadnou nemate, urcite je to dobra investice. 
  4. Hezke a pohodlne kreslo na kojeni – Tohle jsem hledala pekne dlouho a konecne nasla. Opravdova kojici kresla se mi designove nelibi a tak jsem chtela takove, ktere bude pohodlne a hezke a bude hezky zapadat do naseho interieru. 
  5. Velky jidelni stul idealne rozkladaci – S prichodem miminka se mozna zmeni i vas spolecensky zivot a je skvele napriklad poradat vecere u vas. Muzete pozvat pratele uz kdyz je miminko male. A take musite pocitat s tim, ze vas ceka hodne navstev, alespon z pocatku. 

At uz mate priority stejne ci odlisne, je treba o investicich do vaseho domova hodne premyslet, aby vam nove veci proste vyhovovaly.
