designblok Prague ’14

We were lucky enough to be in Prague during designblok, a contemporary design fair that has locations and installations all over the city. Not going to lie, I had never heard of it and  literally stumbled across it when I spotted some amazing interactive installations on our way to the Charles Bridge.  We carved out a few hours right before we left to check out their biggest exhibition space in the old Hotel Evropa. The venue was awesome and the installations/displays looked amazing in the old space but I think there was a lot that could have been done to improve the overall visitor (and exhibitor,  for that matter) experience – like letting people know if the creepy little elevators were actually safe to use or having working bathrooms from this century (no, literally).

What a Year – 1st Wedding Anniversary

Harari-Buchnea wedding Mexico City via youmademelikeyou.com

A year ago today, my husband and I were sitting in a beautiful hotel room in Mexico City eating leftover wedding cake with our closest friends, laughing about everything that had happened the night before at our wedding (while contemplating going outside). November 2, 2013 was when, after ten years of dating, we finally tied the knot in the spectacular Casino Español in Mexico’s Historic Center. We wanted to make sure we could have the wedding of our dreams and when it finally came, we had everything we wanted, including our closest family and friends in my favorite place in the world.  The whole trip still feels like a dream, it was unbelievable to have important people from different parts of our lives all together in another city that seemed so far removed. Even looking at all these photos, I still can’t believe it all really happened.

Photo Travel Diary – A Day in Prague

Travel Photo Diary - Prague  - via youmademelikeyou.com

Well, I’m back in Brooklyn after another amazing trip and I’m exhausted (in the best way possible).  As usual, we had limited time and lots to see/do/eat so every day was totally packed. This time however, we were exhausted from the very first day because we took the “overnight” flight to Amsterdam for the first leg of our trip (a good idea in theory, but you land at what feels like 3am). Even though I fell asleep sitting at a bar, I had an amazing time. Actually, I think being so tired that you can see through time makes you even more relaxed and open for random adventures.

Here I go Again – Packing Inspiration

Packing for Paris - outfit inspiration - street style via youmademelikeyou.com

Of course, packing for your travels depends heavily on where you’re going.  Not just for the weather, but for your mood while you’re there, your surroundings and what you are planning to do. I’m heading to beautiful Amsterdam, Prague and Paris for the next few days and I’m planning on walking, eating, drinking, shopping and looking at art. Heavenly? Yea. 

I’m more into keeping it simple now than ever before (especially since my husband insists I pack light and share a suitcase with him to make running around easier… gaaahhh!) So, my inspiration is coming from these amazing looks here below, mostly street style from this past fashion month.
