How to stay motivated even when you are tired?

I am confident to say that I am a self-motivated person. I do not need others to tell me to work, I can push myself more and more and somehow I am lucky to have that hidden inner drive.

Of course, I am still a human and  I get days when I am down but all you can do is to get over that feeling and just keep going again in the morning. However, lately I have been experiencing a new thing and that is lack of motivation caused by lack of energy. I experienced being extremely tired in my previous sales job whilst blogging do not get me wrong. However, I was in charge when I can rest. I could plan according to my needs so I somehow always managed to balance it out.

Now I have a completely different biorhythm as it depends on my son when he sleeps and when he doesn’t and also the time I would invest in blogging I need to split in between this job and being a good mum to Liam.

So how do I stay motivated even when I get up 4:30 every day? (yep motherhood at its best LOL)

The absolute number one thing is to write down your dreams, goals and milestones or create a vision board and look at it. Look at it when you wake up, during the day and even on the day when you feel exhausted. This helps so much on a daily basis.

Here are few other things that i do and help me to stay on track?

  1. Start the day right – no matter how early I am woken up by Liam I start with hot water and lemon and then coffee! I need my dose of caffeine every day.
  2. Start to be active early – I have always been a morning person and sometimes by 8 pm I have done my workout, put on a wash, wrote a blog post and prepared breakfast for Liam and myself. My experience is that the longer you put things off the lazier and more tired you will get.
  3. Try to look good – How you look and what you wear really changes how you feel. Why do you think old school sales people taught the trainees to stand up whilst pitching? Even a small thing like how you carry yourself can change the outcome. So try to put a bit of makeup and nice clothes even at home. I am not saying jeans but a nice lounge set will do the job.
  4. Surround yourself with proactive people – This helps me on the day when I am lost. Even if I am just on the chat with my best friend and she tells me how much she has achieved that day it pushes me.
  5. Do things that make you happy – If I am really struggling I set my day right by doing something I like. It may be a bath, reading a book for a while, put on one episode of favourite series, putting on a face mask. Whatever it is it may set your day in a good direction.

We all have days when we are up and down but we can get over it. It is ok to have a bad day but try to always do your best at any situation.

Muzu pevne rict, ze se dokazu sama motivovat. Nepotrebuju ostatni, aby me hnali do prace a muzu se vyhecovat sama. Mam zkratka stesti, ze jsem takova a ze mam nejaky vnitrni hnaci motor.

Samozrejme jsem jenom clovek a take mam dny, kdy se necitim dobre, mam pochyby a chci se na vse vykaslat, ale vetsinou to do druheho dne prejde a jsem opet pripravena pokracovat. Ale v posledni dobe bojuju s tim, ze jsem extremne unavena a to je potom o hodne tezsi se vnitrne motivovat. Ono drive jsem byla unavena taky a jako cert, ale to jak se zregeneruju bylo pouze v mych rukou. Ted si zkratka nevybiram, kdy se vyspim a jak dlouho, protoze mi to urcuje moje dite a ze je zkratka nepredvidatelne.

A jak se teda motivuju, i kdyz casto vstavam uz pred patou a nejradsi bych zalezla unavou zpet do postele? 

Moji osvedcenou radou je sepsat si vase cile, ceho chcete dosahnout a nebo si vytvorit tzv vision board, na kterou se kazde rano ci jindy podivate. Kdyz jsem opravdu vycerpana, vzdy me to nakopne jit dal. To je pro me snad nejdulezitejsi vec. 

A tohle jsou me dalsi osvedcene tipy, ktere me motivuji a nezustanu cely den na gauci. 

  1. Zacnete den spravne – U me vetsinou nezalezi na tom, jestli se Liamek vzbudi ve 4 ci v 5, kazdy den zacinam teplou vodou s citronem a pak kavou. Davku kofeinu proste potrebuju. Ale tento ritual me naladi na lepsi den.
  2. Zacnete den aktivne a s nadsenim – Nekdy to me brzke vstavani ma vyhody. Casto se podivam na hodinky a kolem osme uz jsem si zacvicila, dala oprat, napsala clanek a pripravila nam hezkou snidani. U me totiz plati, ze kdyz lenosim a veci odkladam, pak uz se den nese ve stejnem tempu.
  3. Snazte se vypadat hezky – To jak vypadate muze ovlivnit i to jak se citite. Ne nadarmo ostrileni lidi v oblasti sales tvrdi, ze kdyz delate cold calling, mate u toho stat. Zmeni to totiz to jak se citite a jak konate. Takze i to, ze si udelate byt slaby makeup a hezky se oblecete ma neco do sebe. I prestoze se nechystate ven, muzete si dat hezky domaci ubor.
  4. Obklopte se lidmi, kteri vas inspiruji a motivuji – Tohle mi pomaha kazdy den. I kdyz nikam nejdu, pisu si s kamaradkama, ktere me nabiji a motivuji.
  5. Delejte veci, ktere vam delaji radost – Kdyz uz to opravdu nezvladam, tak delam veci, co mam rada. At uz je to vana, pletova maska, ctu si, ci si pustim serial. Zkratka udelejte cokoli, co vas nahodi do dobre nalady a doda vam radost a energii. Den se pak nese v uplne jinem duchu.

Outfit: When does it stop?

Wearing: Dress: Airfield, Coat: Zara, Bag: Chanel, Sunglasses: Nelly, Boots: Duo Boots

Every year after fashion week I go into relaxation mode or at least I like to think I do. Even though I am still in the working process it is not about running from one show to another, trying to master instagram stories, filming, pictures, street style shots, emails and this non stop madness.

I actually caught myself few times to film on my camera and phone at the same time during the show. Yes it takes a bit of skill. LOL

So the whole day I have been dreaming about an afternoon off but it is hard when you do what I do for living and when you love what you do. You say I will relax but then you go and answer that email, edit those picture, keep editing videos, catch up on social media. It simply never stops. So although I said I will put legs up after my meeting with Guerlain this morning I am still in the working mode.

However, that is fine too as I do it for love.

Kazdou sezonu po fashion weeku se jakoby dostavam do faze relaxace, nebo bych si to alespon prala. Samozrejme porad pracuju a moc se toho nemeni, ale litat na prehlidky, akce, byt porad v pozoru, do toho vydavat obsah na blogu a socialnich platformach a jeste si vymyslet kazdy den zajimave outfity je vic unavne, nez se vlastne zda. A tak jsem dneska porad myslela, ze by bylo uzasne si zalezt do perin a nic nedelat.

Ale to ja moc neumim, pisu emaily, edituju atd, beham kolem Liamka, rano jsem mela schuzku s Guerlain a je to porad jeden kolobeh. Ale ono to jde vzdy lepe, kdyz se clovek zapali pro neco, co ho opravdu bavi. 

Ale toho slofika bych si dala sto pro.

How to look feminine on Valentines Day

Wearing: Shoes: Manolo Blahnik, Skirt: Storets, Top: Zara, Earrings: Soru Jewellery, Bag: Bulgari


No matter if you like or do not like Valentines Day I believe it is always good to make things special. I love to encourage women to feel good, look good and make things little bit more glamorous on any occasion. It is not to do it for your other half or for others but simply for you.

So I wanted to share with you this look that could be easily worn on Valentines and share some favourite new products that could help you to achieve this look. I feel Valentines should be about touches of red. Red for me is a colour of love and passion and small things like red lips make women look powerful and strong. In this look I have concentrated more on the lips which are key and used my new Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Lip Colour Ink. 

I have also opted for more glowing look which would look fantastic during candle lit dinner. And I cannot forget to mention that right fragrance for you. You should use something you absolutely love and something that makes the day and evening more special. I have opted for Tom Ford Vanille Fatale which blew me away when I tried it first time.

As you can see I am wearing simple polo neck however the rest of the outfit is more luxurious and feminine. I was simply thinking that this years Valentines Day is on Wednesday and lot of women may be rushing for dinner after work and polo necks are very office friendly. All you need to do is to bring an interesting skirt, small evening back and pair of heels to work and quickly change. You could also transfer your look with simple white shirt and other classic pieces.

No matter what you are doing this year on Valentines day make sure you have the best time ever and you feel great. And of course it is all about LOVE.

At uz mate Valentyna radi ci ne, ja verim, ze je dobre se vzdy trosku snazit vypadat hezky a udelat si hezky den, at uz je prilezitosit jakakoli. Nejde o to si rict, ze se upravite pro sveho muze ci pro druhe, ale jde o vas. Jde hlavne o to tyhle veci delat pro sebe a citit se jako silna a krasna zena.

A tak jsem si rekla, ze s vami budu sdilet tento look, ktery se da klidne pouzit na Valentynskou veceri, ale nejen na tu. Mam spoustu novych uzasnych kosmetickych produktu, ktere jsem vam chtela ukazat.

Jak vite mam rada rtenky, pokud mi da nekdo vybrat stiny ci rtenku, bude to ve vetsine pripadech vzdy rtenka a tentokrat jsem sla do klasicke cervene od Guerlain, ktera je novinkou na trhu. Cervena je vubec pro me symbolem lasky a vasne, takze vlastne cely muj look je cerno cerveny a to jsem zkratka ja. 

Celkove jsem sla do makeupu, ktery neni moc matny, myslim, ze takovy look by vypadal hezky u vecere pri svickach. A nesmim take zapomenout na vyber parfemu. Vune v takovy den by mela byt jedinecna a sexy a ja jsem tentokrat zvolila muj novy Tom Ford Vanille Fatale, ktery jsem si okamzite zamilovala. 

Jak vidite mam na sobe opet klasicky rolak (je to snad muj nejoblibenejsi kousek), ale myslela jsem na to, ze spousta zen bude na Valentyna v praci a na veceri pobezi primo z kancelare. Podle me jsou rolaky urcite vhodne do spousty pracovnich prostredi a tak uz potom jenom staci sbalit vecerni kabelku, sukni a hezke boty. To same muzete udelat napriklad, kdyz mate v praci bilou kosili. 

At uz slavite ci neslavite, cokoli budete letos na Valentyna delat, tak si to uzijte a nezapomente, ze tento den je hlavne o LASCE.
