Tip of the week: Sunset Taverna by Paraskevas

3

What a place!!! Under the red cliffs of Oia there is this stunning romantic spot called Ammoudi bay. A dream spot for food lovers and people that appreciate fresh sea food and romantic atmosphere. I loved this place after visiting one day and this gorgeous taverna got my heart so much we had to come back. Sunset Ammoudi taverna is a place we just came across but after having quick lunch there one day we decided to come back for full dinner after trying many places on Santorini. This restaurant is definitely at the top of my list. It is a fantastic spot to watch sunset but be aware if you want to experience this it is definitely important to actually book a table in advance.

There was just something about this lovely taverna. It was not just about good service and fresh sea food but the fact you feel you are almost dining in the sea. Everywhere you looked there was something beautiful to see and I could not stop soaking in local atmosphere. If I ever come back to Santorini I will come back. I had a thing for calamari on this trip and this placed served the best I tried on the island. However, their other sea food and other Santorini specialities are worth to try.

We really loved everything about this place and hopefully the pictures can bring you closer to this picturesque place.

Pod utesy Oia, ktere maji specifickou cervenou barvu, ktera se casto nachazi prave na ostrove Santorini, se nachazi tohle prekrasne misto – zatoka Ammoudi. Romanticke misto, ktere asi oceni hlavne milovnici morskych plodu a romanticke atmosfery. Behem naseho pobytu na Santorini jsme se zde stavili na lehky obed a hrozne mi tam chutnalo. A tak jsem jednoho dne rozhodla, ze bych chtela Tavernu Sunset vyzkouset i na veceri. Spousta turistu na ostrove si rezervuje stul v podobnych restauraci a ceka na proslaveny zapad slunce. A proto pokud se chystate na tyhle mista kolem osme hodiny tak urcite potrebujete rezervaci. 

Ja jsem se nemohla nabazit mistni atmosfery a pocitu, ze si uzivate vyborne jidlo temer v mori. Myslim, ze jsem nikdy nejedla tak blizko more. Mela jsem i pocit, ze kazdou chvili muzeme spadnout do vody, ale zkratka to melo neco do sebe. Servis, kvalita jidla a vyhled se opravdu neda srovnat s nekterymi misty, ktere jsem navstivila. 

Doufam, ze fotografie vam alespon trochu priblizi vyborne jidlo a tuhle prekrasnou zatoku pod utesy mesta Oia.

Berlin with Marcell von Berlin/Bonprix

1
For those who follow me on snapchat (evaglamazon) you may remember my recent press and bloggers trip to Berlin. Berlin is one of my favourite European destinations. It has got cool vibe, great spots, great fashion and shopping and in a way it reminds my some parts of London.

Marcell von Berlin who is a very talented german designer teamed up with Bonprix to design affordable yet trendy collection that is fun and young. And 15 different international bloggers came to Berlin to create different stylings, shoot and have a great day with the brand. As for UK representation it was myself and gorgeous Megan from Pages by Megan. I was glad I knew Megan before as it is always easier to see familiar face when travelling to these events.

I am not going to lie I was a bit worried how I will style and shoot normal clothes when I had quite obvious baby bump back then. I was finishing month 5 of pregnancy however I think I managed it quite well in the end. I picked tracksuit bottoms with white blouse and this super genius bomber jacket. And guess what? Everybody loved it.

After very tiring and long day of travelling, visiting Marcell’s show room and design studio, makeup, hair styling, shooting we headed to Berlin wall and finally for super delicious dinner at Volt Berlin. You know I am a big foodie and I can give five stars to this restaurant of choice.

Although I was soooo tired (the issues of a pregnant woman LOL) I had such a fabulous time with the team and all the bloggers and I wanted to share it with all of you. Not everybody follows me on snapchat so thought it was a nice day to write about.

Pro ty co me sleduji na snapchatu (evaglamazon) tohle asi nebude zadna novinka, ale nedavno jsem byla na press tripu jako blogerka a to v Berline. Berlin je jedno z mych nejoblibenjsich mest v Evrope. Ma uzasnou atmosferu, skvele restaurace, kluby a take modu a nakupovani. Trochu mi pripomina Londyn nebo abych byla presnejsi nektere cool casti jako je treba Shoreditch.

Marcell von Berlin je talentovany mlady nemecky navrhar a spojil sily s firmou Bonprix pro kterou navrhl cenove dostupnou, mladou a zabavnou kolekci obleceni a doplnku. Je to zkratka dalsi kolaborace navrhare a modniho retezce, se kteryma se v poslednich letech roztrhl pytel. Bonprix pozval 15 blogerek z ruznych zemi a z Britanie pozvali me a Megan, kterou jsem velmi dobre znala uz predtim. Coz se vzdy hodi, kdyz vidite znamou tvar na takovych akcich a jeste navic v zahranici. 

Nebudu vam lhat, ze jsem se trochu neobavala toho, zda se za prve do neceho s mym rostoucim tehotenskym brichem vlezu a take jak bude muj styling vypadat. Myslim, ze jsem to nakonec zvladla docela dobre. Vybrala jsem si teplakove kalhoty s flitry, bilou bluzu a bomber bundu s napisem Yes, ktery je teda na zadech, takze tady na fotografiich nejde videt. 

Byl to pro me docela narocny vylet. Musela jsem vstavat brzo rano a jet na letiste a hned z letiste v Berline primo do showroomu a studia navrhare. Po te jsem se vydali do studia, kde jsme meli rychly obed a pak uz nasledovala sama prace, ale nastesti i zabava. Hodiny makeupu, vlasoveho stylingu, foceni kolekce az to nakonec strasne rychle uteklo. Zbyvala nam rychla navsteva Berlinske zdi a vynikajici vecere v restauraci Volt Berline. Vite, ze miluju dobre restaurace a teto davam pet hvezdicek. Myslim, ze cely PR tym pripravil opravdu fantasticky program a i kdyz jsem byla unavena jako cert, tak jsem si to neskutecne uzila. 

No a nechtela jsem, aby tem, co nemaji snapchat neco uniklo a tak jsem se rozhodla s vami sdilete tento clanek.

Tip of the week – El Carnicero Milano

8

My friend Monika pulled all the stops when planning our social life when I was in Milan. Not only we managed to have a lovely breakfast in Pandenus and an amazing brunch at Four Seasons she also got a table in this Argentinian restaurant – El Carnicero. When we arrived around 8 pm the restaurant was already buzzing. All the locals enjoying their huge meat platters, wine and cocktails.

We ordered some delicious cocktails to start with and waited for our table at the bar. The place really had a great atmosphere and gorgeous decor. I knew straight away what I was heaving. I just cannot deny myself a good steak when you know they serve the best meat in Milan. And I was glad I did it. It was definitely one of the best steaks I have ever tried. We ordered some chips and vegetables on the side. And I felt like in seventh heaven if there is such a place. LOL

So thumbs up to Monika for this great choice. Although I felt like my body just cannot eat anymore we decided to share one of the desserts which was their day special. And I can say one thing – mouthwatering. I have cravings again just by looking at it.

If you are ever in Milan and you like good quality meat and good service you should try this gem. Just make sure you book in advance as they get really busy.

Behem Milanskeho fashion weeku moje kamaradka Monika nam pripravila nabity program, abych si to s ni krome mody poradne uzila. Nejenom ze jsem posnidala v utulne kavarne Pandenus a dala si vytecny brunch ve Four Seasons. Monice s podarilo prekvapive ziskat stul na vecer ve vytecne Argentinske restauraci El Carnicero.

Kdyz jsme dorazily, tak uz bylo v restauraci narvano. Nas vecer zacal nejakym tim koktejlem a ja si uzivala atmosferu. Jde videt, ze misto je to popularni, u dveri a baru bylo chvilema velmi tesno. Nastesti po usazeni uz to bylo lepsi a ja se kochala i jejich dekorem. Uz od zacatku jsem vedela, ze si dam poradny steak. To by ani jinak neslo, kdyz vite, ze udajne serviruji to nejlepsi maso v Milane. A opravdu jsem nelitovala. Byl to asi jeden z nejlepsich steaku, ktere jsem zkusila. A vybraly jsme par priloh, jako hranolky, ktere byly krajene spise jako chipsy. A taky nejake salaty.

Sice jsem mela pocit, ze uz do sebe nedam ani sousto, ale rozhodly jsme se si dat napul jejich desert, ktery byl v nabidce dne. Jeste ted se mi sbihaji sliny. Ani se nemuzu na tu fotku divat. 

Pokud se do Milana chystate a mate radi napriklad dobry steak, zebra a podobne masove dobroty, urcite si zkuste rezervovat stul. Jidlo bylo opravdu vytecne.

Ovolo Southside Hotel Hong Kong

7
Being back from my amazing trip in Hong Kong is not easy however I have so much to share with you. Hong Kong really caught my heart and it is city that offers everything and so much more. It reminds me NY a lot  and plus all those amazing beaches and the weather. The reason for my visit was to see one of my best friends that moved there. As she lives in Water Bay the choice of the hotel was clear. I picked Ovolo Hotel on the Southside.

The location was spot on for us. You can escape the super busy city center and be close to lovely beaches and experience the more relaxed side of Hong Kong. And it costs only few pounds in a taxi to get where you need.

As soon as I entered in the hotel I felt exactly like in the latest trendy spot in London Shoreditch. If you ask why? This hotel is all about the latest trendy industrial interior and cool vibe. It is exactly the spot where all the cool crowd visiting Hong Kong would hang out and it offers great service and comfort.

Every day we had a lovely breakfast which offers lot of choice under the sky on the hotels spacious terrace. You have so much choice from fresh juices, through different pastries to eggs Benedict.

The room was comfortable, modern and very functional. The layout is well designed and works for smaller spaces. One of my favourite features was great shower and super comfortable bed.

The hotel has got everything you would expect from a place like this. If you feel like gym you got it. If you want to have few drinks in the bar or find a quiet spot for reading a book you can find these as well.

We had a such a lovely stay in the hotel and I will definitely be coming back when I am visiting Hong Kong.

Byt zpatky ze skvele dovolene v Hong Kongu neni vubec jednoduche. Hong Kong me chytil za srdce, je to mesto, kde najdete uplne vsechno a je tam neskutecna energie. Duvodem navstevy bylo konecne se podivat za mou vybornou kamaradkou, ktera se tam prestehovala a rozhodla se usporadat skvely Silvestr. Jelikoz bydli v Hong Kongu ve Water Bay rozhodla jsem se pro hotel Ovolo on the southside.

A nelitovala jsem, je dal od rusneho centra a taxikem nas to stalo par liber denne do centra a Southside opravdu nabizi spoustu uzasnych plazych a uvidite tak trochu jiny Hong Kong. Kdyz jsem vkrocila do hotelu citila jsem se jako v nejnovejsim trendy butikovem hotelu v Londynske ctvrti Shoreditch. Jak interier tak atmosfera se nese v podobne stylu jaky vidite prave v teto ctvrti. Interier je velmi industrialni, funkcni a pusobi neskutecne cool. 

To samozrejme neubira na pohodli, ktere nam hotel poskytl. Snidane je bohata a kazde rano jsem snidala na venkovni terase se skvely vyhledem, protoze pocasi bylo opravdu prijemne. Myslim, ze 20 stupnu je dostatecne na to, si uzivat jidlo na cerstvem vzduchu.
