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 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…)
Wow! I feel so honoured and excited to be the part of Style Days as a personal stylist! For me, this is a new way to work with a client. I need to fit an outfit to a client’s personality and body type right at the moment they visit the Style Days spot. This is amazing challenge for a stylist and great accomplishment to make the client happy with the look. What is the most common clients’ reaction to their new look? (more…)

If you wonder how I spend my days this pre-fall period, right now I am now stuck in bed with an infection, cold or whatever,
snuggled in my knitted turtleneck hoping that I get well before fall officially starts. However, on my screen I am looking at these pretty pictures and remembering some amazing moments from this summer. Also, as every morning, I receive FB notifications with memory photos. In some of them I was still wearing summer clothes exactly one year ago. Last year was pretty warm in September and I hoped for the same this year. But it is chilly instead so I did not manage to wear all of my new summer clothes. (more…)
Colorful tights make a stylish piece for fall and winter and it has become hugely popular. We could see colorful tights in Gucci Ready to Wear Fall Winter 16/17 and get some inspo how to wear colorful tights to look their best. From the runway looks you can say that there’s a lot of retro elements but also modern features. In this post, I’d like to show how to wear colorful tights and combine them with the right pieces.

If you have long hair, you will agree with me that sometimes it’s difficult to find new loose hairstyles. The natural style of my hair is something between straight and a little wavy and since it is particularly not definable, it also looks like that if I don’t style it. I’ve been straightening my hair a lot and sometimes I’ve also been curling it with my flat iron. Recently, I fell in love with big waves hair style.(more…)
One of the investments that is really worth is a cashmere sweater. However, there might not be much to choose from in the nearest chain stores, I am afraid. Secondly, quality might differ plus you know what terrible things customers do with clothes when taking it off a rag or just trying on with make-up on etc. And you probably want this soft new purchase to be perfect. I suggest relying on quality brands. Depends what you can afford, from 100% cashmere to wool/cashmere combination. Here is my selection of soft fleecy cuddling sweaters and scarves:
