Closet cleanout and storage closet ideas

organized_closet↑ My closet / Můj šatník 

To prepare your closet for another season might be an uneasy task sometimes, especially if you operate with a limited space, like me. I have both a small closet and a small space for storage. As a personal fashion stylist, I do closet cleanout service and have already seen a lot of closets, most of them really big – and yes, by ‘big’ I mean the special closet rooms full of clothes and fashion accessories which a lot of girls dream of, not actually realizing that the more you have, the less organized it gets. Having a big closet = more options but also more work! The more pieces you own, the lower ability to memorize all of them you have. So the chance to find something in a huge amount of items and to combine an outfit lowers.

Jistě mi dáte za pravdu, že jarní úklid šatníku je naprosto nezbytná záležitost, obzvláště když máte omezené možnosti prostoru k uskladnění. Možná si říkáte, jak velký šatník mám já. Asi budete překvapeni, ale malý. Stejně tak místa na uskladnění. Jako osobní stylistka, pomáhám klientkám s šatníky a tudíž jsem šaten již viděla hodně. A většina z nich byly opravdové “šatny”, rozumějte ne skříň, ale celé místnosti vyhrazené pro uskladnění veškerého šatstva a obuvi, o kterých sní mnoho žen. Pravda je však taková, že čím víc toho máte, tím menší kontrolu máte nad svým šatníkem – těžko se udržuje v pořádku a nepamatujete si vše, co v něm máte. Najít správné svršky v obrovském množství oblečení a sladit je do outfitu se často stává nejen časově náročné, ale i stresující.

It is so easy! All you need to do is to pick a color you love, order your color lenses online and then just apply them in a few seconds.
As I’ve been already mentioning in my beauty posts, I am a daily contact lenses wearer. So when I got an opportunity to test the color lenses, I got very excited and decided to take a visible eyes color change and ordered annual green lenses from Wr Lens – the Natural Colors Esmeralda. You simply pick the color lenses you like and eye diopter power for your eyes. All will be manufactured exactly according to your needs and demands.
For me it is such a fun to be able to have emerald green eyes when I have a mood for a distinctive look!

My Top Makeup Products

Freedom_Makeup_London_Highlighter_Palette_Mirror
This time I would like to share some of my (recent) top makeup products. If you are also following me on Chic Cocktail Facebook page, you could notice that I share my makeup looks from time to time. I can say that my relation to makeup is purely natural cause I also think that makeup is in fact a natural part of our lives even if all you manage in your daily makeup routine is giving a little color to your complexion with the right foundation and a chic blush.
………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
Tentokrát se s vámi chci podělit o produkty na líčení, které jsem si oblíbila. Pokud občas koukáte i na Facebookovou stránku Chic Cocktail, zaregistrovali jste již i některé mé selfie fotky, jak jsem se nalíčila a čím. K líčení mám naprosto pozitivní vztah, protože ho beru jako přirozenou součást života a denního rituálu každé z nás, i kdyby mělo jít pouze pár minut ráno před zrcadlem. Já osobně někdy stihnu pouze základ – podklad a tvářenka, ale jindy si přivstanu a ráda se nalíčím pečlivěji.

This outfit post is a bit more personal cause I would like to have a little chat over a nice cup of coffee with you. Friday coffee tastes the best, am I right? All weekend ahead of you! I got very comfy this time so this is a kind of casual Friday outfit. I am wearing a denim shirt and jeans. How to dress more denim pieces in one outfit and look chic? Pick different denim colors! You can also find more inspo on wearing denim on denim in my Denim on denim post. In this casual Friday outfit I combined my dark blue skinny jeans with a denim shirt. A pair of well-fitting dark color jeans belongs to key closet pieces. Dark blue skinny jeans look perfect on all body shapes. If paired with an elegant blouse or a blazer, you can create a casual office look very easily. Clean dark-color jeans without any distress or ripping will do amazing job in your closet cause they are perfectly combinable into lots of looks. A quality pair of dark blue jeans will serve you well for years. Do you own one? Do you wear a casual Friday outfit in office? Let’s talk about that!

Co byste řekli na to popovídat si nad šálkem výborné kávy? Ideálně v pátek! To totiž chutná úplně nejlépe!
Můj outfit, který jsme fotili v pátek v brněnské Air Café, je vyložené ležérní. Zkombinovala jsem džínovou košili a tmavě modré skinny džíny. Jak nosit více džínových kousků k sobě a vypadat šik, si přečtěte v mém článku Denim on denim. Jednoduchá rada je kombinovat kousky z odlišné barvy džínoviny. Jedním z klíčových kousků šatníku jsou tmavé jednobarevné, nevyšisované džíny bez děr a zdobení, které mohou být skvělým základem mnoha outfitů.

Sugar Body Scrub

Body_Scrub_Farmona_Sweet_Secret4
Today I would like to talk a lot about sugar! How sweet, isn’t it? However, I’m not going to talk about baking sweets but body exfoliation with a sugar body scrub, and I also want to share my experience with a sugar paste hair removal. Who doesn’t want to enter the S/S season with silky smooth skin! As in the saying: ‘Summer bodies are made in winter’, it is essential to care of your body in cold season particularly.The temperature changes, layers of clothing, indoor heating… all this factors can cause dry skin and lack of its flexibility and softness. The easiest way to recover your skin is to follow a scrubbing routine.
There is a variety of body scrubs available on the market. As I suffer from sensitive skin especially in relation to depilation, I was advised to try out a gentle sugar body scrub. You can even make a natural body scrub with sugar at home. I personally started my sugar body exfoliation routine after my first salon experience with sugar paste hair removal. I must say that sugar paste removal is a very gentle way to remove hair with smooth skin lasting for weeks. Seriously! However, if your skin is allergic, you might still have an allergic reaction after the sugar paste removal no matter how gentle the process is. But! Starting a body exfoliation routine (and repeating every second day) can help a lot! I can tell you from my own experience. Thanks to the body sugar scrub, skin cells revive quickly and all irritation disappears within a few days. I bought this Sweet secret by FARMONA and it is simply amazing. Love the dark chocolate and pistachio nuts in it. And its scent tempts you to eat the product in the shower, lol! It is easy to use. Massage the area until the sugar melts on you.

Jil Sander – Perfume Review

Jil_Sander_Jil_perfume

When you hear Jil Sander, the first think you imagine is probably MINIMALISM and Jil Sander designer as a minimalist cult representative. Besides this, Jil Sander fashion house has created almost 60 own fragrances.
The one which I am going to review here is JIL Sander Jil 2009 and there is a story behind my Jil Sander perfume. This perfume was a gift and you know, when given a scent you have never tried, you do not expect much. I actually unpacked the Jil Sander perfume only a few weeks later since I got it, on 2015 Christmas Eve.
The scent of this Jil Sander perfume surprised me very positively and became my top fragrance discovery this winter and also a perfect (not only) winter scent since it is a musky perfume. You can smell musk rather intensively, also the accords of warm vanilla, pink pepper and lavender, my fave scent. The composition of this perfume also says it includes orris, tangerine, amber and lily of the valley.

Star Wars Style – Part 2: Belted Coat

I am happy you loved my monochromatic outfit so much. This is the second part of our fashion story. Since days are still pretty cold I am wearing my fave wool cardigan belted with a blue genuine leather belt on the long grey cotton coat which you could see in Part 1: Monochromatic outfit and which will definitely be awesome for the spring. Belts are a great way how to highlight your waist (or create one) and reach the effect of a perfect hourglass figure. So why not wear belts even on coats. Besides this, a quality leather belt works as a jewel and will serve you long years. Pick one in your favorite color – a bright one to stand out in your outfit or in classy black or brown shades to match all your pieces. I really love leather accessories, both faux leather – as the bracelet in this outfit and genuine leather. You already know that I like Ritore accessories a lot. I must say that I own some genuine leather belts for more than a year and they look like bright new and never worn. That is what I call quality worth investing. It also happens to me normally that I wear more than one belt in an outfit – on my pants plus on my coat. All belted, hahah… Do you like wearing belts?

Mám radost, že se vám můj poslední monochromatický outfit tolik líbil. Tento článek je pokračováním módní story s krycím názvem Hvězdné války. Na celo-šedý outfit jsem oblékla svůj oblíbený dlouhý kardigan, který jsem tentokrát přepásala modrým koženým páskem Ritore. Navrstvila jsem tak přes dlouhý bavlněný kabát z minulého článku Monochromatic outfit. Na jaro bude úžasný, ale přece jen je na něj stále chladno. Proč ho tedy zatím nenosit pod kabát?
