Today I spent the afternoon with my friend getting another tattoo :) (number 6) We decided on it last Wednesday, when our friend came to the pub with a new tattoo :) we both had ideas and were waiting to make them permanent, we both had money saved and since she leaves on the 9th Jan, we wanted to do this together before she leaves. Luckily for us, the tattoo artist was free today :) He is great big dude with cool sense of humor and before he actually started tattooing, we spent an hour just chatting and laughing :D if you are interested in more of his work here is a link to his Facebook page.

the first buzz :) 

I was a bit scared because I heard many scary stories about tattooing over bones, but in the end, it wasn't as bad as I tought. I was distracted by my friend and the mister himself and only felt real pain a couple times near my toes and around the top... I will be getting a matching one on my other foot too:)

finished :) excuse my Donald Duck foot (mr. tattooer called it that :D :D :D ) 

If there are any Supernatural fans reading this, you may recognize the gun and the saying 'Non Timebo Mala'. It is the demon killing colt and these words are written on it... It's latin and means 'I shall fear no evil'. I really liked it since I first saw it on the show and yes, I am that kind of fangirl :D (my first tattoo was a Bob Marley and Zion related Lion of Judah :P ) I really like the meaning and the gun was supposed to be just a symbol, a reminder to keep fighting... I love it so much, the way it looks, I'm getting the same gun mirrored on my other foot with words 'Intus mihi vires' which means 'Strenght comes from within me'. I wanted to get those words with a rosary tied around my ankle, but this will look much more awesome and the meaning stays the same....

Christmas Eve

Some pictures from yesterday. It was very nice and calm day full of TV stories (Penguins of Madagascar, Despicable me... :D ) and fun topped with yummy dinner, Christmas traditions and presents :) 

I bought extra long sparklers and we fired them on the balcony :)  

One of the traditions - put candles in nut shells and let them float. This should determine the length of your life, if it sinks you die soon. But luckily we all had ours floating until the very end... Happy lives ahead :)

I got some clothes, really lovely. 2 cool sweaters, awesome shoes I can't wait to wear, skeleton print leggings and sugar skull top from my sister. I also got a tablet, coat and some money.
The coat I got is very similar to the one from my christmas wishlist. So basically everything I wanted I got, except for the headphones, but I don't really need them, I just loved the way they looked...:)

I am very happy with how our Christmas day went on, I think that is how Christmas should be, with family and close ones, and although I had to go to work later, I had a nice day (I don't get the new emerging trend of people going to clubs on Christmas Eve, I believe it is meant to be spent with family and in many cases it's actually the only time of the year families spend together - not us, we are very close - but the club I work at was packed full until 6 am... ). I will share some more pictures of holiday traditions after I celebrate with my father. 

Hope all of you had a beautiful, peaceful Christmas

Name day

Today is my name day - Lucie. This day is not celebrated in the Czech republic, but there are other countries where they hold traditional light parades. Of course i get some gifts for the name day, usually some money and chocolate or a book. This year I got Dan Brown's new book (which is really awesome so far!) and my favorite cpt. Morgan with a glass and a headscarf :)  And my sister gave me the cutest plush fox :)

I'm going to celebrate this year by lighting some candles and possibly staying up all night to protect myself from the evil female demon Lussi that in some countries is believed to lead her followers to something similar of a Wild hunt. You can read more about St.Lucia's day traditions on Wiki

No mercy

Yesterday I went for a shopping trip with my boyfriend and some friends. It turned to be more eating trip, because my companions were all boys so our first stop was McDonalds :D and we got one gift for my boyfriend's brother. And this t-shirt for me :) it's from the mens section of New Yorker. I gave it my usual treatment (snipping of the hemline and neckline, shortening sleeves and rolling all the hems :) now I'm thinking I'd like to add silver studs between the leopard frame and the white frame but I'm not sure how the studs would hold up in the washing mashine... I need to try on the piece I snipped of :) 

I absolutely love it :P

1st Advent Sunday

With the first Advent Sunday, it's time to start sharing our decor and Christmas inspired DIY :) I'm not making any decorations in advance, I just make whatever Mom asks me to or what I think would look nice in our home. That's the reason why I'm not sharing any DIYs now, because I don't have any yet :D For today I want to show you the pictures of our first decoration hung - the staircase leading to our apartment.

those two huge planters were on the balcony, maybe you remember them from this summer post. Mom and I brought them inside so they won't freeze over. Same with the small flower pots. And we decided to decorate them too :) I spend all morning doing this and the stairs :) I was wearing my Santa hat all the time and the neigbors passing around asked me for presents :D
