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). (more…)

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. (more…)

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.

Rose Pattern Textured Skirt Outfit | Chic Cocktail

H&M rose pattern textured skirt, H&M grey cardigan with shimmer,
Primark brown T-shirt , Primark wool floppy hat, Primark over the knee boots,
Mango bag, Ritore cinammon leather bracelet / kožený náramek

This H&M skirt is one of my most favorite skirts. Can’t believe that I am wearing it in a fashion outfit for the first time now. I am sure you can imagine that this rose pattern textured skirt looks great in minimalistic black & white outfits with either a black or white top. You can also combine it with bold colors. However, would you decide to wear it with neutrals, such as grey and brown? It is probably not the typical first idea when you see this textured skirt. Well, that is why I picked these grey and brown pieces. To show you the versatility of the neutrals. We have had so many foggy days around Christmas which is when this outfit was shot. My wool floppy hat is a perfect companion in such grey foggy days. (more…)
