I can’t believe its already been 2 weeks since I returned from my vacation to the Czech Republic, a place I’ve always wanted to visit for the longest time ever. I fulfilled my dream to visit the beautiful “City of 100 spires” aka Praha or Prague as we know it and I thought I’d share some of the things you can do while you’re there, because quite a few of you had expressed interest to visit.
If your plan is to shop till you drop then Prague isn’t for you. Let’s just get that out of the way because I’ve met more than a few people in my time who, at the mention of Europe, start to get that Chanel sparkle in their eyes. There is good shopping to be had in Prague, but its not the best place for that. What its worth going for is the views, and architecture and to just soak up the atmosphere of an old city, relatively undamaged by the various wars and political upheavals they’ve undergone, and just live for a little while.
I was there towards the middle of Spring which I was told, is not exactly a wonderful time, because the weather can get a little wonky. They had a long cold winter and were just starting to thaw out by April so when I arrived, the weather was a warm (almost hot) 25°C and I was quite disappointed. 2 days later, the temperature plummeted to the low teens and down till about 4°C. Its apparently better in Autumn when the weather is more stable but in Spring, you’ll see the beautiful flowers in bloom everywhere so it has its attractions.
I thought I’d share 10 things you can do in Prague, in case you think of visiting, and it serves as a quick introduction to the city and what I did while I was there So, strap yourselves in your chair, we’re going on an armchair holiday with quite a few pictures to go through!

If you remember, back during the MWS 6th Anniversary giveaway series, I gave away a very exclusive item that had not yet even been launched at the time. It was the Estee Lauder Nutritous Radiant Vitality Essence Oil and I’m hoping the winner is enjoying hers, because I am really enjoying mine! I’ll be telling you more about it next week.
Today I wanted to just let you know about the new additions to the Estee Lauder Nutritious skincare range and a little about what this range is about. The Nutritious skincare range in its distinctive red packaging has been on the shelves since its introduction in 2007 and its a bit surprising, but I’ve never seen it pushed very aggressively.
I remember being interested in it back then and I may have tried a little sample and I was intrigued, because red is very eye catching, but if you go to the counter, you will be introduced the hydrating range (blue) or anti-aging range (pink/purple) and rarely, and almost never, the Nutritious range. I always wonder why.
With Nutritious, Estee Lauder extracts the benefits of the pomegranate fruit in their new proprietary Pomegranate Nectar Infusion which contains anti-oxidants, skin boosting nutrients, moisture and energy. Almost like a power drink for your skin. Have you ever tried this range?

Mary Kay is a name not unfamiliar to many people. Its familiar to me, but much to my surprise, I have never in all my years come across a Mary Kay representative. Rather, I’ve never had anyone approach me to sell me the products, have you? So its probably not surprising that I have not yet tried anything from the popular direct selling brand.
However, I have in recent times had people tell me to give some of their products a go. Mascara is one of them, as is their lipgloss and lipstick. I’m also told their eyeshadows are very impressive at a wallet friendly price tag, so that’s another item I’m quite interested in. Have you tried them?
But I digress, because what we’re on about today is the Mary Kay Beauty that Counts limited edition Nourishine Plus lip gloss in “Celebrate” and the Creme Lipstick in “One Woman Can” – although what I really wanted to say is “LOOK AT THE PRETTY SWIRLS!” I am put in mind of Raspberry Ripple ice cream.
