There’s something about the fall foggy mornings. Even more if you just watch it from the comfort of your home or over a nice cup of coffee at your favorite café. Time stops for a while. I like to pick calm places to relax and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere. One of them is a candy store in my home town Brno and it has a special name. If I were to translate it from Czech, it would be ‘Sorry, we bake in our own way.’ And their way is too delicious. I decided to shoot some outfits at this sweet place. And I also tried to make my outfits a bit sweet. (more…)

How I Get Wavy Hair without Heat

Most of my beauty reviews on Chic Cocktail blog are focused on hair care products which actually corresponds to my obsession with hair styles, or more specifically hair color, experiments. I need to admit that I really have gone through a couple of different hair styles in the past years. You can even see the proof in my post ‘My different hairstyles’. Altogether with my main passion, which is fashion obviously, I can see the picture of me quite clearly. Once I’m all dressed up and my hair is fine, I feel good. My makeup is a secondary issue. A healthy diet and calm mind is my best skincare. If my skin in in good condition, I do not burden it with makeup, usually. My mornings are all about my outfit, accessories and the hair! (Well… ok, plus eyebrows and mascara). (more…)

Lavera Organic Skin Care Review

As my diet is green, I also use organic skin care only. At the moment I am testing Lavera Basis Sensitiv anti wrinkle day cream with Q10 coenzyme. In my video Lavera Basis Sensitiv Q10 you can see me unboxing and applying the cream for the first time. Now, two weeks of daily usage, I can share my thoughts about the Lavera Basis Sensistiv Q10 cream. Learn more in my full review below.

My Fall/ Winter 2017/18 Trends Wishlist

You can get all the trendy items from my wishlist at Rosegal.com (website with free shipping worldwide)

 

I simply love what is happening in fashion this fall and winter! I don’t know if this is just my point of view but I feel lots of confidence and much more extravagance in the latest trends. The trendy pieces are chic and perfectly wearable at the same time. My closet basics for the cold season are mostly neutrals so I just add a pop of new trendy colors to them and new combinations are born. You might wonder if it’s worth investing in trends. Well, my advice of a fashionista and personal stylist who loves experimenting and combining classics with some hot stuff is: You don’t need to spend too much for fast fashion. I spotted some great deals and I am sharing them in my wishlist. (more…)

Olympia Style Days 2017

event: Olympia Style Days


 

Wow! I feel so honoured and excited to be the part of Style Days as a personal stylist! For me, this is a new way to work with a client. I need to fit an outfit to a client’s personality and body type right at the moment they visit the Style Days spot. This is amazing challenge for a stylist and great accomplishment to make the client happy with the look. What is the most common clients’ reaction to their new look? (more…)

Jumpsuit – my fave piece in summer

LOCATION: OPEN GARDENS, BRNO

Wearing in this outfit: Medicine playsuit, Mango Bag, Primark slippers & necklace

If you wonder how I spend my days this pre-fall period, right now I am now stuck in bed with an infection, cold or whatever,
snuggled in my knitted turtleneck hoping that I get well before fall officially starts. However, on my screen I am looking at these pretty pictures and remembering some amazing moments from this summer. Also, as every morning, I receive FB notifications with memory photos. In some of them I was still wearing summer clothes exactly one year ago. Last year was pretty warm in September and I hoped for the same this year. But it is chilly instead so I did not manage to wear all of my new summer clothes. (more…)

The frills! You can see them everywhere this season. Luckily, this trend will continue in fall winter with frills added to coats and even pants. Happy to hear that? I definitely am. I´ve bought a couple of frill tops, most of them are the summery ones.
Talking about summer, the reason why I am posting my summer outfits this late, nearly in fall, is that I had kind of a more relaxing and traveling holiday. I spend a lot of time on social media when I’m working so except for Insta stories, I kept myself more offline.
Anyway, I want to share my most favorite pieces of this summer with you. And also, to give you a tip on a great place to visit in my city, Brno. (more…)
