My demands on ethical and quality standarts of beauty products have increased over the past 2 years. Before I purchase a cosmetic product, I explore its brand’s philosophy, origin, ethical values. More information about production process is provided, more trustful it becomes in my eyes. There still remain loads of drugstore or even dermatological brands which are owned by magnate companies concentrating their low-cost cosmetic production in institutes with animal testing or other unethical practices (haven’t been abandoned in some places yet, e.g. China).
I would like to share thoughts about an organic beauty brand with a very interesting story and admirable all natural production.
It is Natura Siberica, cosmetics of wild herbs and flowers. I have already published an unboxing video including my first impressions on Natura Siberica products. You can watch it to see my complete experience with Natura Siberica haircare line. (more…)
I got a new hair styling tool as a Christmas gift. It is Remington PRO Sleek & Curl and I love the way it treats my hair.
Until know I owned just the classic straightener which was great but I tried using it for creating curls for a couple of times.
I didn’t fail but it used to take too much time and effort. (more…)
MOST PRODUCTS FROM THIS BEAUTY COLLAGE ARE AVAILABLE AT NOTINO
Every year I prepare some ideas on Christmas beauty gifts so here is my Christmas wish list 2017. I always pick products which I personally love and which I have had good experience with already.
As some of you know I was working at Notino eshop for a couple of years which was not only a great working experience for me but there was even funnier part of it – getting to know the assortment. Imagine seeing the beauty offers every single day. No one would resist shopping! Now after all the opportunities to try out new things, I can say that I know what to pick among the huge amount of beauty consumer goods, and also, what I don’t want. (more…)
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…)
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…)
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…)
