Best Winter Coat for My Body Shape

We’ve already had the first snowing this year! Such a cute white surprise when I looked out of the window after I woke up yesterday. This also reminded me of the fact that it’s time to change the trench and biker jacket for a nice warm winter coat. Do you have a quality one which looks simply awesome on you no matter what body shape you are?

If you have not found the right winter coat for you yet, you should rethink it and check out this guide which can help you find the best winter coat for your body shape.

Paphos, Cyprus: Sea Caves

phOTO: TOM DILHOF

LOcation: St. georges, sea caves, coral bay

Stunning views at St. George Chapel, Paphos, Cyprus

It was the most unexpected, exhausting but the very best trip during our stay at Paphos, Cyprus. We did not expect any long hiking so packed just with swimsuit, beach umbrella, snorkel, a little water and no food (relying on local refreshment sources) we changed our bus from Paphos centre to a microbus at Coral Bay and could not wait snorkeling at the famous Sea Caves. We thought Sea Caves is a specific place with a beach where you can go underwater in the cliff caves. Only later we realized that sea caves are everywhere in this locality. (more…)

Paphos, Cyprus: Bikini On

phOTO: Tom dilhof

LOcAtion: lighthouse getaway apartments, paphos, cyprus

So excited to visit another island this summer! There is something attractive about the places surrounded only by the sea waves. Islands are definitely an exotic kind of holiday. The next thing I admire here, is that islanders are forced to protect their country and copy with its valnurable ecosystem all the time. We can learn a lot from local habits as tourists.

My Travel Essentials List

I have probably never been traveling in a summer that much as this year. Most of my journeys in July and August were for business since I was a trainee in Prague fashion stores. However, I was packing almost every week for a couple of days. Luckily, the best is yet to come and I am going to travel for holiday too. Our destination is Cyprus and I can’t wait to discover lots of beautiful spots on the island. We also plan to shoot a lot of pictures and do videos so as you might expect from a fashionista, I will be fully packed. Some items to pack are of bigger importance than the rest to me. Thanks to my previous business trips I already know which little helpers I cannot travel without. The following useful travel products are all on my travel essentials list.

Natura Siberica Shampoo Review

Natura Siberica shampoo & conditioner for colored and damaged hair

 

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…)

Remington Iron that Curls & Straightens

Remington Pro Sleek & Curl review

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…)

My Body & Mind Christmas wish list 2017

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…)
