About me



Thank you for finding the time to read my blog. I want to bring you the latest trends and news from the luxury handbags world, fashion trends and luxury travel and lifestyle tips.

My name is Petra and was born and raised in Czech Republic (beautiful Prague) but currently living in UK.  My background is in marketing, where I was working for more than 11 years while based in several countries. I loved to see and learn how women in each country dressed. There are always some basic trends you can see everywhere, however the interpretation can be quite different.

Fashion has always been my passion and handbags particularly. My style is quite simple, classic, sometimes a bit preppy. I am reluctant to do bohemian and I don’t wear too much pattern. My favourite handbags are usually timeless pieces even though I started to be a more adventurous recently (burned orange Chanel backpack would be the one). However working long hours in the office and travelling for business trips (no glamour there, as you only see airports and meeting rooms lol), I found it difficult to find time to keep myself up to date with what was going on. Therefore I wanted to create Chic Journal blog for women (and men) like me, who love fashion but don’t always have the time or energy to go and buy something new.

I love travelling and I love enjoying great restaurants. As my husband and I are travelling quite a bit, I have decided to start to share with you also what I think about the hotels we stay in and restaurants we eat in as well. Hope you will find it informative and helpful.

So keep reading and don’t be shy to leave a comment 🙂

lots of love
