My cute planner by Lovemusic

Love_Music_diary_Audrey_Hepburn_Black_and_White

At the beginning of February I was looking for the best weekly planner for me. You might say that I had a two-month or longer delay and you are right! I wanted to add one on my Christmas wishlist but I could not find the right one for me then. And with things you use every day it simply must be love at first sight or nothing! Luckily, I checked lovemusic, an eshop full of cute designer accessories! I found a wide offer of cool designer planners with the planner covers made out of real music discs! The planner covers from lovemusic are designed with a photo of the most fave icons or dozens of other cool prints. Obviously I was excited to find the famous image of Audrey Hepburn in her Breakfast at Tiffany costume ♥ My cute planner is all black and white and I ordered it online and then picked in lovemusic store in Brno. I had fun visiting the store and you can already see from the lovemusic web that these designers love what they do so you will definitely stand out from the crowd with a lovemusic product! Check out my cute planner photos and let me know what you think!

Na začátku února jsem si konečně vybrala diář na rok 2016. Ano, mám zpoždění minimálně dva měsíce, lol! Sice jsem si přála diář už k Vánocům, ale nějak mi žádný nepadl do oka. A věc, kterou používám denně a mám ji prakticky stále u sebe, se mi musí hooodně líbit!

Star Wars Style – Part 1: Monochromatic Outfit

Monochromatic_outfit_grey_coat_scarf_silver_clutch

A monochromatic outfit was on my ‘wanna-try-wearing’ list for long time. Of course, I have already worn some all-black outfits. But I was thinking about trending another color. Finally, I decided for grey with some cool shimmering silver accessories. I actually found out that to get pieces in my closet of just one color which would look good together is not that easy (except the black).
If you go into wearing a monochromatic outfit, there are a couple of key points to follow – pick pieces of different fabrics and also different shades. In this all-grey monochromatic outfit I am wearing a thin turtleneck with a rib knit midi dress on it, a long cotton coat and a wool scarf. My photographer, Luci, found an amazing location next to the Janáček theater in Brno perfectly matching my minimalistic outfit. After seeing the result of our shooting, we agreed on the idea that it looks so futuristic we could almost call it a Star Wars outfit. I actually fell in love with the monochromatic style, so I am definitely trending it more in future. What about you? Are you a fan of monochrome fashion?

Monochromatický outfit jsem chtěla vyzkoušet již nějakou dobu. Tedy nééé že bych doposud neměla na sobě třeba celočerný outfit, to samozřrejmě ano. Plánovala jsem však vyzkoušet jinou barvu a nakonec jsem se rozhodla pro odstíny šedé v kombinaci se zářivými doplňky a kovem. Když jsem monochromatický outfit promýšlela, zjistila jsem, že najít v šatníku kousky v jedné barvě a zkombinovat do minimalistického outfitu není až tak jednoduché, jak to zní.

Green Plaid Skirt & Navy Blue Jacket

Do you like experimenting in fashion? I hope so! You know I do! Sometimes I really like to combine pieces in an untypical way. Doing this I want to tell the world: hey, fashion is fun, don’t be so strict and enjoy that! I could obviously style this pretty designer blue plaid skirt into an elegant outfit with a single-color top. But it is the easiest styling anybody can think out in 1 second, I guess. I prefer challenge! And this school-girl look is the result. Another reason why I chose a bit sporty playful style is that I go to the gym right from work regularly and it was my gym day. So I needed something casual chic to look good even when wearing my sportsbag. Apart from my pretty green plaid skirt by Jocha, I also wanted to show you my new navy blue jacket. I bought it when looking for a new coat. Then I realized that I have not bought a really warm winter jacket for long. When I was trying this blue quilted jacket on, I fell in love, especially with the collar. It can be transformed into a turtleneck. My wool accessories provide the outfit a bit of more playfulness but since they are all in grey, they also kind of neutralize the whole look. Now, let me know… What do you think of this school-girl look?

Také rádi experimentujete v módě? U mě jste si toho již určitě všimli. Móda je skvělá hra. Nebuďte tedy na sebe přísní a neomezujte se, jinak vás to bavit nebude. Tím samozřejmě nemyslím, abyste porušovali základní módní pravidla. Ale kdo se bojí, nesmí do lesa. Nebudu vám tu na své nové kostkované sukni z návrhářské dílny Jocha ukazovat, jak ji můžete nosit na elegantní způsob k halence či jednobarevnému topu. To věřím, že dokážete vymyslet za 2 vteřiny ráno před skříní ve spěchu.

Burgundy Coat & Brown Midi Skirt

Faux_Leather_Midi_Skirt_Brno_Walk_Old_City

I realized that none of my fashion outfits were shot in the centre of Brno, my city. It’s probably because I actually do not get to the centre very often since I live by the Brno lake and my work is outside the centre as well. Luckily, we have weekends and so, when we were thinking of the place for our Sunday shooting with my photographer, I happily agreed on the idea to do some pics in the very old Brno centre. Thus, you now have a chance to see a bit more from my lovely city. These pretty photos were taken by Mirek, the photographer I have already collaborated with on shooting the fashion editorials and I was really pleased to cooperate with Mirek again.
I was wearing an outfit in the city style. Anyway, my faux leather midi skirt was definitely not designed for long walks or rush :))) A midi skirt is a piece which looks very elegant on any type of figure. Just be careful with your choice of shoes. The slimmer and taller you wish to look, the higher heels you should take. I combined my brown midi skirt with burgundy clothing in my outfit. I am in love with my burgundy lace blouse. The leopard pattern on my faux fur boa matches the color of my brown midi skirt and I think, it looks chic with the burgundy coat. I also made sure to pick accessories in red wine shade and a brown leather bracelet to underline the burgundy-brown color combo. I hope you like this outfit inspo and you enjoyed the Brno city old centre walk with me!

Když jsme se s fotografem domlouvali na místě focení mého outfitu, došlo mi, že jsem vám vlastně ještě neměla příležitost ukázat historické centrum Brna. Proto jsem s návrhy fotit ve starých brněnských uličkách a na Petrově, nadšeně souhlasila. Bydlím u přehrady a pracuji také mimo centrum, takže se do centra města moc často nedostanu. Ještěže existují víkendy a skvělé nápady! Máte tudíž možnost vidět zároveň s mým outfitem i něco navíc z brněnských památek. Na těchto krásných fotkách jsem spolupracovala s fotografem Mirkem. Společně jsme již pro blog tvořili některé módní editorialy a já jsem moc ráda, že jsme se opět setkali na dalším focení.

Ziaja Goat’s Milk Review & GIVEAWAY

My dear beauty fans,
I’ve got something special for you this time. Recently I’ve been testing amazing products by a Polish brand Ziaja. I chose the Goat’s Milk line, namely the Ziaja goat’s milk Facial Mask and the Ziaja Goat’s milk Body Lotion. The goat’s milk is deeply moisturizing ingredient rich in proteins and is perfectly suitable to soothe sensitive skin and reduce wrinkles since goat’s milk is also said to be a youthening elixir. What is even more special about this post is that now there is a chance for you to win Ziaja goat’s milk products. Keep on reading and you will find the Ziaja Beauty Giveaway below this beauty review!
First things first! My experience with these products has been so pleasing!

Ziaja goat’s milk facial mask

I applied the Ziaja goat’s milk facial mask after the deep cleansing with my sonic cleansing brush. The mask consistency is very creamy and soft. The mask is absolutely non-sticky and I must admit that I almost forgot that I am wearing it. My cat reminded me of that when I wanted to cuddle him and he stepped back. I rinsed the mask after leaving on for the typical 20 minutes. My skin felt very smooth and it got a healthy glow.

Ziaja goat’s milk body lotion

I love the Ziaja body lotion too. It calms my skin perfectly and leaves it a silky touch after body scrub or shaving. You can sense that there is something really moisturizing in the milk. And the product scent is just wow! I would describe it as a kind of milky floral scent. It quite surprised me cause you wouldn’t expect a floral scent from the product of minimalistic design with a silver goat image :))) However, after studying more about the ingredients I found out that the brand uses roses, jasmine, herbs and more natural ingredients.

Enter the Ziaja Beauty Giveaway below and win this amazing gentle care which I’m sure you’ll love!Ziaja_Goats_Milk_CollageMoji drazí milovníci kosmetiky,

mám pro vás dnes něco speciálního. Otestovala jsem produkty s obsahem kozího mléka od polské značky Ziaja. Kozí mléko je výtečně hydratující složkou, je bohaté na proteiny a výborně zklidní citlivou pokožku. Kozí mléko se také považovuje za elixír mládí. Dokáže totiž vyhladit vrásky a obnovit mladistvý vzhled pokožky. S touto recenzí Ziaja produktů vás navíc čeká soutěž o 2 přípravky s kozím mlékem
Nejdřív ale mrkněte na mou zkušenost s kosmetikou Ziaja.

At the weekend it looked like spring with the sun shining and rather warm for January. Such a change from the frosty days and even snowy surprises which I miss a lot. I planned to go skiing but everything has been changing so fast recent days! We only started enjoying the real winter when the white beauty melted in no time. The irony is that lately even my personal life has been corresponding to this weather with the unexpected changes. And the funny thing is that I do not change anything intentionally.
Life is full of changes and changes often come without asking. The best you can do about an unexpected change is to turn it into a profit. For example, enjoy a nice stroll in the city in the weekend sunny afternoon.

Sonic Brush Facial Cleansing

Regarding the beauty innovations, the ones which bring us ways how to effectively do the same job as professional beauticians, are really amazing!

Imetec_Facial_Cleansing_Kit1

This sonic vibration facial cleansing system is one of them. I am so happy that I can share my experience with the IMETEC sonic brush which I found under the Christmas tree. One of the key promising features of the sonic brush is to ‘thoroughly cleanse, exfoliate and revive your skin’. The IMETEC deep facial cleansing sonic brush can be used on any skin type and comes in a pretty cleanse kit including 4 spare heads for professional facial cleansing.

Také milujete takové vynálezy, díky kterým si můžete profesionální kosmetickou péči dopřát v pohodlí vašeho domova? Sonické čistící kartáčky na pleť jsou bezpochyby jedním z nich. Já našla pod vánočním stromkem sonický kartáček IMETEC a svou zkušenost s hloubkovým čištěním pleti vám chci v tomto článku přiblížit. Jednou z klíčových vlastností přístroje je již zmíněné vyčištění pleti do hloubky a tím i obnova jeji struktury. Sonický kartáček Imetec Bellissima, který mám já, může být použit pro jakýkoli typ pleti, včetně citlivé a v krásné sadě se ukrývá 5 hlavic pro různé funkce.
