6 RANDOM FACTS

 

ZARA grey bell sleeve knit: similar / MAJE leather pants : similar / CELINE Audrey sunglasses / DANIEL WELLINGTON  Classic Sheffield watch / CHANEL classic flapbag / ISABEL MARANT ETOILE Nowles boots / MANSUR GAVRIEL pouch (included in MG bucket bag)

It is not so long ago since I launched my blog and ever since then, I have met many so many wonderful people and even made unexpected friendships. So first of all, thank you for all your love – without you it wouldn’t be possible. You make me inspired to do more every day.

I thought it would be nice to write a little bit more about me so you can get to know me better. I myself always enjoy reading more personal posts, they just show us in the real human not always perfect light. Because don’t we all look perfect on Instagram:)

So here are my 6 random facts for these 6 months my blog has seen the day of light:

1. I grew up in Prague, Czech Republic as an only child (plus one dog). My family is small but we are super close. I traveled a lot, lived in California, almost moved to Brasil, and finally ended up in Paris, France. I moved for a new job and a new love to the city of lights which constantly inspires me. Now I am married and have a baby girl Emma who just turned 18 months. And yes, some of you might have glanced at my recent pictures (more here) – I am also 7 months pregnant with another baby girl! #girlpower

2. Before becoming a mama, I worked more than 10 years in marketing and advertising for many international brands. However I have been always dreaming about being my own boss, constantly looking for creative outlets and for what I am really passionate about. I love photography and I have to admit I am enjoying blogging more than I thought!

3. Some of you might know – my name is Sharka. The most un-international name for an international girl (thanks Mom). In my country this name comes from a legend where Sharka was a leader of woman war against men. And then she tricked them and woman won:) I constantly struggled with my name, especially living abroad for most of my life because noone understands it when I introduce myself. Sharka – huh? Yes – my name is Sharka like a shark.

3. As I moved a lot in my 2o-ties, now I cannot wait to settle down with my family. We just bought a house (now only the dog is missing) and I cannot wait to start this new chapter in our lives! We will be going away from Paris but we still have family here so I’ll be back very often:)

4.  I am quite a series maniac. I prefer series over movies because I just love the thrill of watching (as quick as possible) episode by episode. My ideal lazy weekend would be in my PJs in bed, with a new series and bunch of snacks. That’s all I could ask for:) When you have kids all of these weekends are far gone though!

5. Talking about food, my favourite is sushi and I am an expert on salads – with whatever you can imagine. My friends call me the salad master:) I also love bread which I prefer over a dessert. Thank God for French boulangeries!

And I am a girl who never says no to bubbles. Also thank you France for the best champagnes in the world!

6. I am deadly scared of rats. Yes. You can throw a snake or spider at me and I wont say a thing but just a thought about a rat makes me want to run for my life!

I hope you got through my little introduction and I did not bore you to death:) If you have any questions or insights – I would love to answer in comments below!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I love this! I didn’t even originally know you were in Paris until after I returned from my trip there. Maybe I’ll run into you somewhere else in the world. I actually really like your name. It’s unique and I love the warrior story behind it! Haha… rats scare me too, but I’m more afraid of bugs.

    First off, congrats on your second pregnancy! How exciting that you are having another girl. I have two girls (and a boy) and they are 18 months apart and while they fight a lot, they also are the best of friends too. You look amazing and that tiny bump is too cute. I love hearing about you and getting to know you better. I love Paris as well and wish I could go there more often. This sweater is one of my favs and I am a huge fan of your style. xoxo, Christine

    Loved learning new things about you! I could relate to some of your points. especially about traveling and the name. People trying to say my Polish last name (Szczepanska) out loud is definitely a great conversation starter… and laugh!
    Were in California did you live?

    Wow it was really great getting to know you! Congrats on two baby girls! I always love asking people the history and origin of their name. I think Sharka is beautiful and unique and it has such a powerful meaning and story behind it. How lovely! I’m not a salad master, but I do love it a lot!!

    it is quite fun to know you, I would never ever think that you are from beautiful country, I have a friend who is married to girl from Czech Republic and to be honest we hate her LOL, not because where she is coming from, because she is so weird and rude. I have been in Zcech Republic before and loved it, can’t wait to travel there again!

    This was such a great read, girlie, I loved getting to know you more with these facts! Wow, you almost moved to Brazil?! That’s amazing how much you’ve traveled and how destiny brought you to Paris and now you have a growing family. it’s amazing how life plays out, isn’t it!? I loved also getting to know the meaning behind your name, which is so stinkin cool, even more so that you’re starting your own little tribe of girls, haha! Thanks for sharing, girlie, and I hope you have a great week ahead!

    I loved getting to know you a little better! I’m so interested in learning where you will be moving too! I will be visiting Paris in June will you still be around at that time? Congrats on purchasing your first home with your family babe! There is no better feeling or accomplishment than doing so! It’s also really neat that you have a background in marketing and advertising, really helps with blogging I bet!

    This was much fun to read! I am also dead scared of rats but through in anything which crawls or flies into the mix. Just kill me already, I already knew your name was sharka – the meaning is quite interesting! Plus only child? I can’t imagine. I am one out of 5!
