How to love your cellulite? The truth about my body..

Wearing: Swimsuit: Figleaves, Earrings: Celeste Starre, Sunglasses: Celine

I am sitting on my sofa and still wearing my pyjamas and thinking how to name this article. The truth is after seeing the swimsuit pictures from my holidays I saw the reality of my body and I know the best way is to accept it and love it with my full heart.

This can be difficult sometimes as we are surrounded by the best images of others on social media, you may also have friends with great genetics, resources, time or that are younger and they are fitter than you from different reasons. My best friend though always tells me that we definitely look better than 95 % of people on this planet and she may be right. Other people may be dreaming about your body or state of your skin, level of cellulite and size. And some maybe even wishing to have fully functional and healthy body if you see where I am coming from.

Originally, I wanted this to be about my journey during lockdown when I pushed myself and did a full course of insanity workout and diet and pretty much everyday did dry body brushing with oil massage after. I wanted to test myself for sure if it all actually works. I lost weight but I am not where I thought I would be…having said that I look better. I am just thinking imagine how much models or stars have to work out if even after all this hard work I am not super tight and smooth?

I have serious respect for everybody that can transform their body to J Lo or supermodel level as it must be bloody hard work. Back to my questions does dry body brushing work? Not for me sadly….I have been inspecting this closely and did lot of reading about this and found an interesting article that said you would need to brush yourself very tough (almost bleeding they stated) in order to awake your lymphatic system like that so maybe there is a truth to this. What I have tried second time and I can swear on it is Insanity workout. It does help cellulite a lot. I still have huge amount of it but it was much worse. And if you are trying to first lose weight I can say The fine diet, Keto diet both work effectively. I am amazed myself.

I would say my last comment is to stay on track. If you want to feel and look good and you have had success just keep trying out new things. The more I am looking into it I need to start to introduce weight training to my routine to tone the lose skin and sculpt your muscles.

However, no matter what you have to start to love your body as it all begins with that. You could lose 10 Kgs or have a boob job but if you do not love yourself it will not change much. That is something we need to take in account.

Sedim na pohovce a jsem jeste rozcuchana a v pyzamu a premyslela jsem delsi dobu jak nazvat tento clanek. Po tom co jsem prosla fotografie v plavkach z nasi dovolene jsem videla realitu sveho tela. A uvedomila jsem si, ze proste sve telo je nejlepsi milovat tak jak je. Milovat se bezpodminecne a prijmout vsechny nedostatky jako celulitida.

To muze byt obcas tezke a to hlavne v dnesni dobe, kdy na nas vyskakuji dokolane fotografie ze socialnich medii a vetsina lidi ukazuje tu nejlepsi cast sebe. Nebo take mozna jako ja mate kamaradky, ktere maji zkratka lepsi telo. Muze to byt danou genetikou, maji na sebe vice casu, maji vice penez na ruzne procedury ci stavi sve telo a to jak vypada na nejvyssi pricku svych priorit a vzdy na sobe pracuji. At uz je to tak ci tak, je treba si uvedomit, ze mnoho lidi by ted s vama klidne menilo. Mnoho lidi si treba preje plne funkcni a zdrave telo a neco jako povolena kuze je jim u pr….! Jedna moje kamaradka mi vzdy rekne, ze stejne vypadame lepe nez 95 % lidi na teto planete a ma asi pravdu.

Jak mozna vite z mych socialnich medii, tak jsem behem izolace zacala trosku vic makat. Ja jsme se vzdy hybala a starala o sebe, ale opet jsem zacala s treninkem Insanity, ktery zabral jiz drive a nasadila poprve keto dietu. Navic jsem pridala kazdodenni masirovani celulitidy kartacem na sucho a po cviceni a sprse osetrovala kuzi olejem. Puvodne jsem chtela venovat clanek pouze vysledkum, ale nastala takova smrst myslenek, ktere jsem vam chtela sdelit.

Jak to vsechno dopadlo asi vidite a vite z mych predchozich postu. Prvni veci je, ze jsem urcite zhubla, ale nejsem zdaleka tam, kde jsem si to cele predstavovala. A diky tomu me napadlo, ze nekteri lide musi opravdu makat jako blazni. A tem opravdu rikam klobouk dolu. Predstava jak musi makat top modelka ci J Lo je docela masakr. Insanity je velmi intenzivni cviceni a v kombinaci s masazi a dietou by mel byt vysledek mnohem lepsi, ale neni. Presto jsem rada, ze jsem se do vseho pustila. Je mi mnohem lepe, obleceni sedi lepe a diky Insanity se dokonce i zlepsila celulitida. Mam ji az az, ale bylo to mnohem horsi. Take jsem zjistila, ze masirovani kartacem na ni v mem pripade nezabira bohuzel. No a keto dieta je zaruceny a efektivni zpusob jak zatocit s kily navic. Tvarovani postavy je uz dalsi vec a to je neco na cem budu muset asi pracovat.

Procitala jsem spoustu clanku a informaci a jak to tak vypada s pribyvajicim vekem je treba pridat cviceni s cinkou a zavazim, aby se zpevnovala volna kuze a celkove se zpevnilo cele telo. Pilates je take dobra volba pro celkove zpevneni.

Ale stejne je treba zacit s tim, ze sve telo mate radi takove jak je. Nepomuzeme vam ani o deset kilo mene ci nova prsa. Vsechno to zacina u vas v srdci. Na tom si musi zapracovat kazdy z nas.

Is life and shopping back to normal?

Wearing: Shoes: Chie Mihara, Top and Jeans: Zara, Sunglasses: Givenchy, Blazer: Men’s vintage, Necklace: Missoma, Bag: Asos

I keep asking myself when life is back to normal? Ok, shops are open and now some pubs and bars but is it really back to normal? Well, sadly not. At least not for me.

I am still not keen to browse in the shopping centres and department stores in London but I truly miss it. It is a great source of inspiration but I must say it is just not the same now. I went to couple of favourite high-street stores nearby and there is just strange atmosphere in the air.

I truly miss just the carefree shopping and browsing and soaking in the inspiration from people and beautiful clothes. However, by the looks of it I will have to stick predominantly to online shopping.

And perhaps this will be a new way of life? I deeply believe it is not and we just need a bit of time to find solution for this all.

Uz par tydnu se ptam sama sebe, kdy se vse vrati do normalu? A nejsem si tak uplne jista, v Britanii se pomalu otviraji bary, restaurace a hospody a jsou otevrene i obchody, ale neni to zkratka ono. Takze jsme si odpovedela na svou otazku. Na normalitu si budeme asi muset jeste pockat. Vsude je takova zvlastni atmosfera a chybi tomu ta bezstarostna normalita a veci, ktere byly drive beznou zalezitosti.

Nakupovani mi docela chybi, nebo spis samotne chozeni nekam, kde nasavam inspiraci. Do centra Londyna jsem se jeste nevydala a prosla si par obchodu nedaleko meho domu, ale neni to zkratka ono. Ja hodne nakupuju online, ale jde mi spise o to cerpani inspirace a pocit bezstarostnosti, kdyz se nekde pohybuju.

Myslim tedy, ze opravdu budu pokracovat prevazne v nakupovani online. A navic ted se to vsude hemzi produkty v akcich a slevach. Nedavno jsem narazila na tento slevovy a kuponovy portal Bonipo. Ale slevy a akce jsou vsude. Firmy se snazi dohnat ztraty za poslednich par mesicu a je to znat.

Ja si jenom preju, aby se vratila normalita a bezstarostnost do vsech sfer. To ale jak to tak vypada bude asi chvili trvat.

SKIN REJUVENATION WITH SILK’N FACETITE – NO BOTOX NEEDED

I have added something extra to my skincare routine and it was the best decision ever. I had the privilege to test out the Silk’n FaceTite Ritual skin rejuvenation device for the last ten weeks and I am very happy with the results. The older I get the more I am interested in testing out different tools and massagers that can postpone me using more radical treatments like botox or fillers. I am proud to say that I have not had any of these and love discovering easy things like this I can use at home. Plus it is quite fun to try new wonderful products for home use. It is also a much cheaper alternative that gives you more flexibility. I am a busy mum and something like this gives me flexibility to do it at times I want.

It is a very simple set that includes Silk’n Bright silicone facial cleansing brush which helps to clean your skin much more effectively. It works on the basis of sonic technology and can clean deeply plus provide massage for your face. It is 5 times more effective than cleansing by handand I have been using this twice a day to make sure I am getting the best results out of the whole FaceTite Ritual. It is waterproof so perfect for those relaxing times in a bath or shower and you can kill two birds with one stone. I am a firm believer that clean skin is the basis of a good skin so this step is very important. The vibrations are very pleasant on the skin and you can use it with your regular cleanser. Just try to avoid products that have exfoliating effect as this tool itself has got good cleansing effect already and you should not overdo it.

However the main tool FaceTite is the one that will help you to reduce wrinkles and improve elasticity and the whole appearance of your skin. I have started to see results as soon as 5 weeks into the routine. I was using this twice a week and would treat my critical areas like forehead, eye areas, lip area and chin and would use it at maximum heat 15 minutes on each critical area. You can expect red skin after as in contact with the skin the electrodes will create heat and the tool will produce red light. Both these contribute to renew collagen and lead to better skin and less visible wrinkles. The set also contains a special gel and a hyaluronic serum that just helps to achieve better results and I have been using those exclusively when treating my skin. I will not lie that some areas like eyes are more sensitive than others so for using the higher scales on fine lines around eyes you need a bit more time to get used to. The results are worth it. It is one area that demonstrated the best results.

You may think that this is quite time consuming. However if you stick to a routine and perhaps do this while watching a movie with family or yourself you will see how easy it is to fit this in. My favourite part of this was that at the weekend when we had on favourite series I would clean the skin and whilst watching a good movie I would also do something good for my skin and use this comfortably whilst sitting on the sofa.

I have also filmed a video where you can see how I have been using this and also more results like before and after pictures as well. I cannot wait to continue using this as If these are the results after just few weeks then imagine after months of using FaceTite Ritual. I can highly recommend this product. You can purchase this at different online retailers and also here at official website.

V poslednich nekolika tydnech jsem pridala do sve pece o plet dalsi krok, ten sice zabere vic casu, ale jsem moc spokojena s vysledky. Jsem moc rada, ze jsem mela vyzkouset Silk’n FaceTite Ritual a podelit se s vami o me zkusenosti. Cim vic mi pribyva let, tim vice se zajimam o ruzne metody, ktere nejsou tak radikalni jako botox ci fillers a snazim se pridavat ruzne kroky, ktere mohu delat v pohodli domova.

V tomto setu najdete Silk’n Bright, ktery slouzi k ocisteni pokozky. Je petkrat efektivnejsi nez bezne cisteni rukou a jde to znat. Pouzivala jsem ho rano i vecer pokazde dve minuty s mym beznym cleanserem a jsem velmi spokojena. Produkt diky vibracim a specialni technologii cisti pokozku hloubeji a take dokaze masirovat. Jakykoli produkt se tak dostane do hlubsich vrstev vasi pokozky. Ja verim, ze cista plet je zaklad vseho.

Hlavnim produktem je ale FaceTite, ktery po pravidelnem pouzivani vyditelne zlepsil moje vrasky a take elasticitu. Vrasky vam nezmizi, ale vyrazne se zlepsi. Ja jsem videla nejvetsi zlepseni na vraskach kolem oci a take na elasticite pokozky na brade. Produkt ma 5 rychlosti/stupnu a idealni je, kdyz pouzivate FaceTite 2x tydne na nejvyssi stupen 15 min na vase problematicke casti. Priznavam, ze to zabere cas, ale ja jsem si vzdy vecer sedla k televizi, vzala male zrcatko a pekne pomalu si jednotlive casti obliceje osetrovala. Pokozka bude po pouziti cervena, ale toho se nebojte, elektrody jsou horke a v citlivych castech jako oci je to trosku narocnejsi. Pak se vse ale upravi. Neni na skodu si po osetreni dat nejakou chladivou masku.

Opravdu nejvetsi vysledky vidim asi kolem oci na drobnejsich vraskach. Necekala jsem se, ze vrasky zmizi, to by bylo asi proti prirode, ale kdyz jsem natacela video, ktere je na youtube, tak jsem videla rozdil i na vraskach na cele. Vypadaji proste mene vyrazne.

Jestli jsou tohle vysledky za par tydnu pouzivani, tak se tesim na vysledky pri dlouhodobejsim pouzivani.

Things that I truly enjoyed in Isolation

Wearing: Grey cropped top: Femme Luxe, Blazer: Men’s vintage, Purple t-shirt: Femme Luxe

Isolation has hit most countries and sadly UK is behind of other countries. Whilst other places are almost back to normal we are still not there yet. I feel very lucky to be in a position I have a house with a garden, my little family and lot of things to enjoy. I thought I would share some things how I loved spending my time.

One of my number things is signing up for Tik Tok and actually creating content. You can follow me on evaglamazon. I got so hooked and continue stalking amazing accounts and fun videos. I have been also loving having iced coffees almost daily and it is one of my favourite parts of the day to make a nice cold brew or latte. There is just something so enjoyable about sipping cold coffee in the garden and enjoying bit of sunshine.

I also have more time for trying out beauty launches and spend more time on skincare and routines. I have discovered so many great products in the last three months and really enjoy this more than ever. Last but not least I love having a bit more time for books. You know I love psychology, motivation and law of attraction books but there were also others that I truly enjoyed reading.

Being in isolation is not so bad after all.

Isolace zasahla snad cely svet, ale UK je hodne pozadu a to bohuzel diky spatne strategii. Zatimco vetsina zemi uz se vraci k normalu, UK je jeste par tydnu pozadu. Ja jsem velmi vdecna, ze mam dum se zahradou a svoji malou rodinu a ze jsem si dokazala diky malym radostem a svym klukum isolaci i trochu uzit. Tak me napadlo, ze napisu, co mi hodne delalo radost.

Jedna z nejvetsich radosti je urcite Tik Tok. Nekolik let jsem se zdrahala a nakonec me to totalne chytlo. Muzete mi dat follow evaglamazon. Denne se kocham super ucty a Liamka to taky moc bavi. Dalsi radosti je urcite ledova kava. Tu si delam casto odpoledne a uzivam si na zahrade, kdyz je hezky. Miluju bud jenom cernou kavu s ledem nebo latte.

Nesmim zapomenout na zkouseni novych produktu. Jsem moc rada za to, ze mam tu moznost i v isolaci zkouset novinky na trhu a take mam vic casu sama na sebe. Objevila jsem ruzne kosmeticke poklady, ktere si me okamzite ziskaly. No a v neposledni rade nesmim zapomenout na cteni. Urcite ted ctu vice a jsem za to vdecna.

Diky temto radostem ta isolace nebyla vubec spatna.
