Beauty: My Hair Journey and Love for 3 More Inches Treatment

During my life I have had several “traumatic” experiences with my hair. Especially as a teenager when I was trying to find myself until I realised what I feel the best in. There were couple of times they cut my hair so short that I cried for days. There were times when I wanted to get rid of red hair colour and not only I had allergic reaction but I also ended up with pink hair after. So at those points I decided I will not listen to hairdressers when it comes to their ideas about my cut and so on. That was my rule. And for a long time I sticked to it. I came to all hairdressers with a vision and did not let them to change my mind. Until few months ago…

A very well known hairdresser said I should do this and that and I left in tears. He cut it way too short and also created layers which I did not know how to work with. Well, lesson learnt. I am now again on a mission to grow my hair and get them to the best possible health.

However, I noticed my hair got much drier and the health wasn’t what it was before. I went through an awful infection about a year ago and my hair lost it’s shine and got much drier during that month. It was a big breaking point for me. It is never good news for somebody that is keen to grow their hair.

This was all until I started to use 3 More Inches Life Saver Pre Wash treatment by Michael Van Clarke. I was invited to try the treatment in the salon and what a pleasant experience it was. Everybody listened to what I want but also even after that one visit I saw a visible change to my hair. So I could not wait to start to use this at home. I have been now using the treatment, shampoo and conditioner for few months and things are getting so much better.

The whole collection of products is fantastic. I use the treatment minimum once a week and you get the best results when you sleep with it. The hair soaks it in so you do not have to worry about wet pillow case. And you simply continue with shampoo and conditioner in the morning. It is silicone-free products and it contains cashmere protein that help to repair the hair. I am not there yet fully with the length and the health but I have noticed huge improvement and that feels amazing.

It is all about getting on the right path and keep the right routine to achieve what you want.

Za svuj zivot jsem si zazila nekolik “traumatickych” situaci u kadernika. Hlavne jako teenager. Jednou me ostrihali tak, ze jsem brecela tydny. Podruhe mi stahovala kadernice cervenou barvu a nejen, ze jsem dostala alergickou reakci, ale nakonec jsem mela vlasy ruzove. Nikdy na to nezapomenu, protoze jsem jela na stredni na vylet do Londyna a komenty na me ruzove vlasy prichazely jeden za druhym. No a tenkrat jsem se zarekla, ze uz nenecham kadernikum volnou ruku. Pujdu si vzdy za svou vizi a z te neslevim. Zkratka budu poslouchat sebe a ne kadernika.

No a to jsem nedavno bohuzel porusila a opet jsem odchazela zklamana. Nebylo to tak dramaticke, ale jeden velmi znamy kadernik, ktere striha a cese ty nejvetsi svetove hvezdy me presvedcil, ze vi nejlepe. Nevedel!!! Vlasy si mi zkratil opravdu mnohem vice a take prostrihal, coz mi uplne zmenilo strih a ja si proste nevedela rady se stylingem. A v ten moment jsem si rekla a dost, chci vlasy nechat rust a pracovat na zdravi vlasu a hydratovat. Pro nekoho nudne, ale hlavni je, ze se to co mate na hlave libi vam. Je to o pocitu a vnitrni spokojenosti. 

Nejvetsi negativni zmenu jsem zaznamenala na vlasech asi pred rokem, kdy jsem dostala silnou infekci a skoncila na mesic v posteli. Prvni dva tydny jsem temer nemohla nic snist a to se opravdu podepsalo pozdeji na pleti  i vlasech. Obecne mam sussi vlasy, protoze jsou vlnite a tohle me opravdu dorazilo. Pro nekoho kdo chce nechat vlasy rust a libi se mu zdrave, dlouhe vlasy je to tohle rana pod pas. 

A tohle vse se udalo predtim nez jsem zacala pouzivat vlasovou masku, kterou si aplikujete pred umytim od Michael Van Clarke. Jmenuje se 3 More Inches Life Saver a je to oblibeny produkt mnoha celebrit. Michael pomaha spoustu znamym osobnostem s rustem vlasu a celkovym uzdravenim. Nejprve jsem navstivila salon, kde jsem si kuru vyzkousela a uz po prvni navsteve jsem videla velky rozdil.

Moc jsem se tesila , az budu produkty pouzivat doma. Nejlepsi vysledek je vzdy tehdy, kdyz s kurou ve vlasech spim. Vlasy krasne produkt nasaji, takze nemate mokry polstar a rano si vlasy vzdy umyju samponem ze stejne rady a potom aplikuji kondicioner. Uspech produktu je hlavne v tom, ze neobsahuje silikon a ma v sobe hodne kasmirovych proteinu, ktere pomahaji obnovit strukturu vlasu. 

Nemuzu rict, ze jsem co se tyce vlasu, tam kde chci, ale uz ted vidim velke zlepseni. Vlasy jsou zdravejsi a nechavam je rust. Tato kura navic prospiva i me citlive pokozce hlavy, prestoze mi bezne mnoho produktu nesedi. Jsem rada, ze jsem na spravne ceste a o tom to je. Takze hura zdravym a dlouhym vlasum a jedeme dal.

Beauty: Welcoming Autumn Glow

Autumn is here and even with cosy evenings at home and crispy days outside I am not willing to let a glowy makeup go anywhere. I wanted to share with you couple of key products I have been enjoying for some time and will be transforming them to colder months as a part of daily makeup routine. The tones fit perfectly this type of weather whether it is colder but sunny day or another rainy afternoon.

Recently I have been using the Guerlain L’Essentiel Natural Glow Foundation and I love it. It gives that natural glow you need. And you probably have seen all over my social media that I am obsessed with Dior Backstage Eye and also Glow Face palettes. They are my holly grail. And of course I love to set everything with my all- time favourite Translucent powder by Laura Mercier.

The rest is all about those perfect final touches and today I have used Tom Ford Brow Pencil together with Eye Liner, Guerlain Mascara, Tom Ford lipstick in the shade Naked coral and stunning Nars lip pencil.

This is a perfect makeup for crispy autumn day like today when you see the sun and feel the crispy air as soon as you step out. How beautiful!

Podzim je tady a s nim i utulne vecery doma a chladne dny a ja jsem se rozhodla, ze se nevzdam glowy makeupu. Pro nektere patri letu, ale ja jsem si nektere tyto klicove produkty tak oblibila, ze je budu pouzivat  i v nadchazejicich chladnych mesicich a budou stale soucasti me makeupove rutiny. Tyto teple tony se hodi jak na slunecne chladne dny, tak na ty vice uprsene a jsou na podzim idealni. 

Nektere produkty jsem pouzivala prakticky cele leto a to hlavne dve paletky od Diora, ktere vidite na fotografii a take makeup od Guerlainu. Strasne me bavi tyto barvy a opravdu pridaji pleti takovy ten lehky trpyt. A pudr od Laura Mercier je jeden z nejlepsich pudru na trhu vubec. 

Tento svuj oblibeny zaklad jsem doladila Tuzkou na oci a take tuzkou na oboci od Toma Forda, ktere patri mezi me favority a take rtenkou od Toma Forda. I prestoze jsou cenove drazsi, musim rict, ze stoji za to, protoze krasne hydratuji a maji nadherne odstiny. Ted si take hodne pohravam s linkama na rty a dneska jsem pouzila tuto krasku od Nars. A nesmim zapomet na oblibenou rasenku od Guerlain. 

Krasny makeup v teplejsich tonech na krasny, chladny, ale slunecny den jaky mame prave dneska v Londyne.

Outfit: Bye Bye Summer

Wearing: Dress: Pampelone, Shoes: Emu Australia, Sunglasses: Longchamp via Sunglasses shop , Bag: Gift from Loccitane team

So as it happens I got back from French Riviera and got right into autumn mode. It has been very hectic return after tiring journey and lot of changes are coming. Liam started nursery a day after we returned and man that is hard. I would not expect to find it this stressful and emotional but when you see the children upset and asking for mummy it is a sad sight. Hopefully they will all settle in soon.

I would not mind to be taken back to Saint Tropez and Antibes and escape reality but things like this have to be done sadly. We had the most amazing times and it was the nicest way how to say good bye to summer. I also published first video which you can watch here.

This will be probably last very summery looking outfit unless I get myself somewhere to chase winter sun :) Anyway loving this look and it is spot on model for South France. The Longchamp sunglasses have been one of my favourites this summer and honestly cannot recommend them enough. I wear sunglasses all year long so I am sure you will see them with all my autumn and wintery outfits too.

But I am now ready for autumn fun and this is the time to say bye bye summer. But just for a while.

A je to tady a jsem zpatky s rodinou z dovolene ve Francii. Pomalu se ladim do podzimni nalady a nebudu lhat, ale navrat byl hekticky a hlavne prichazi velka zmena v nasem rezimu, protoze Liam zacina predskolni dochazku. A abych byla uprimna, je to tezke. Jsem plna emoci, vystresovana a nepreju si nic jineho, nez aby se mu tam libilo. Pak se mi teprve ulevi.

Kazdopadne by mi nevadilo opet uniknout realite a vratit se za slunickem na Francouzsky jih. Opravdu jsem si to uzila a take jsem uz stihla vydat prvni video z nasi dovolene, tak se muzete podivat tady na mem youtube kanale.  

Tohle je asi posledni vyletneny outfit, ktery tady uvidite a jsem pripravena se rozloucit s letem a uzivat si podzimnich radosti. Liam miluje Halloween tak uz premyslim, co podnikneme, jestli usporadam u nas party a tesim se samozrejme na dynovou farmu, kam ho letos urcite opet vezmeme. 

Ale je na case se na chvili rozloucit s letem a uz se tesim na dalsi.
