5 Ways how to get over January Blues

 

Wearing: Shoes: Isabel Marant, Skirt: Revolve, T-Shirt: Balmain 

January can be one of the most depressing month. I remember those times when I had to return to the office after Christmas and everybody around was miserable. You just keep bumping into grumpy people in the streets and everybody on the morning train has a sour face on. People used to talk about how much they have to save in January as they splurged on Christmas fun. Nobody was really going out, drinking or doing anything interesting. Well, let’s face it the holiday eating habits are really out of order so it is probably natural that people want to have fresh start and detox a bit. And they also have to watch their spending.

And all of this in a combination with cold weather can result in a very dull month. It is a very long month, holiday fun is over and spring is still far away. I really get all of this however it does  not have to be like that even if your budget is small. So I thought we all need a bit of motivation and few tips how to survive January blues.

Dress Well

There has been a lot of research done how clothes and what you wear is connected to your confidence and your emotions. Just imagine yourself even now wearing a well fitted suit or pyjamas and doing a pitch to somebody. Two different outfits can change everything but mainly your confidence and how you feel. It is ok to wear comfortable clothes but if you slip too often and just say you stay in pyjamas because you feel rubbish it is not leading anywhere. So each time you want to grab that oversized jumper and leggings maybe think twice and pick that glamorous blouse instead.

Look after your body 

If you look after your body it will thank you sooner or later. The first thing most of us tend to do when we do not feel great is to grab a bar of chocolate or another type of comfort food. However, if you eat nutritious food and keep up with the balanced diet you can even manage your moods. And if you add bit of exercise that is even better. And looking after yourself also means to get good night sleep and meditate. Everything works well in moderation so even if you are motivated to lose few pounds do not overdo it.

Do things you love

I know it is January but there has to be at least one thing you can do even on a small budget. You can go for a long walk with a friend and make a cup of coffee at home, you can watch great TV series, finally get that book you wanted to read, go swimming, meet other people or treat yourself to a manicure. I have always loved the idea of having my girlfriends over and do a beauty night in with some pop corn, Neflix and face masks. It is a great way how to keep some social life going even if you overspend during December.

Make plans

January is a great month to plan the whole year, set goals, book holidays and write down your dreams that with a bit of work and luck and planning can come true. Imagine if you actually do book your holidays during this super long winter month. That must cheer up even the most miserable person. Or at least I hope so.

Organise your home/Change decor

If you like to feel productive you can always work on your interior at home. How about to update decor in the living room or bedroom. Your surroundings should make you feel good when you spend lot of time there especially during winter months. There are still lot of sales around so if you grab a different paint or a nice throw with cushions that are on sale you can easily bring a bit of glamour to your house too.

So let’s try this and make sure we feel great even in January. No point to cry, moan and feel bad just because it is winter month and not much is going on. It is about what we do and how we make it.

Leden byva casto jeden z nejvic depresivnich mesicu. Moc dobre si pamatuju, kdyz jsem jeste pracovala v kancelari jak byli lidi mrzuti, unaveni a porad si jenom stezovali. Kazdy musel setrit, protoze utratil vse na Vanoce a Novorocnich oslavach. A kazdy se rozhodl hubnout, zahajit detox a cvicit. A tak nikdo nechtel nic podnikat, nic delat a vubec nalada byla kazdy rok pod psa. Ranni cesta metrem byla prehlidka kyselych obliceju a prichod do prace nebyval o moc lepsi. 

A tohle vse spolu s pocasim ma za to, ze Leden byva povazovany za takovy ponury a nudny mesic. Ale ono to tak nemusi byt a to i presto, ze chcete opravdu setrit. A tak jsem se rozhodla sepsat par tipu jak s touto mrzutou naladou zatocit. 

Hezky se oblecte

Ne nadarmo se rika, ze obleceni dela cloveka. Cetla jsem uz nekolik clanku, ktere tvrdi, ze pruzkumy dokazuji, ze spravne zvolene obleceni muze zvysit vykonost cloveka a take jeho sebevedomi. A neco na tom bude, protoze si treba predstavte, ze delate pohovor po telefonu a jeden v obleku a druhy v pyzamu. Ja si teda myslim, ze ten v obleku by asi dopadl lepe. Neni samozrejme nic spatneho na tom si dat pohodlne obleceni a leden provalet na gauci u televize, ale pokud chcete opravdu zatocit s depresemi, mozna zacnete tim, ze se hezky oblecete a treba nalicite.

Starejte se o sve telo a mysl

Vetsina z nas sahne po necem sladkem prave v tom momentu, kdy nam neni hej. To asi neni to nejlepsi reseni ( i kdyz to sama nechci slyset), protoze je to prave vyvazena strava, ktera nas dokaze ovlivnit a ma za to, ze se citime lepe. A kdyz si k tomu jeste alespon trosku zacvicite, budete meditovat, vase telo vam urcite podekuje. Mezi starani se o sebe take patri kvalitni spanek a proto to nemusite prehanet a nutit se do neceho extremniho. Jak se rika vseho s mirou.

Delejte veci, co mate radi

Existuje tolik veci, ktere muze clovek podniknout a nebude ho to stat majlant. Co treba prochazka s kamaradkou a misto kavy nekde v kavarne si ji muzete udelat doma? Muzete si udelat zkraslovaci den v pohodli domova, sledovat oblibene filmy ci serialy, konecne si precist nejakou skvelou knizku  a nebo usporadat takovy vecer s kamaradkama, kdy si udelate pletove masky, nalakujete si nehty a pustite si prijemnou hudbu. A pokud nechcete opravdu v lednu pit, muzete vino nahradit vyzivnou smoothie a udelat si treba takovy wellness zkraslovaci vecer.

Planujte

Zacatek noveho roku je nejlepsi doba na to si planovat, stanovit si cile a nebo treba zrovna objednat dovolenou. Je to cerstvy start pro vsechny z nas a takova pomyslna doba na to si planovat sve sny na dalsi rok. A kdyz treba ulovite ve sleve dobrou dovolenou, tak to snad potesi i toho nejvetsiho mrzouta. Ma se totiz pak na co tesit. A depresivni mesic leden pak s vama nemuze zamavat.

Zorganizujte si domov a venujte se interieru

Mit pekny a pohodlny domov je take klicem ke spokojenosti. Ja osobne miluju odpoledne po velkem uklidu, protoze se ve svem dome citim zkratka lepe. Co tak vyuzit zimnich slev a treba si vase bydleni trosku zutulnit. A nemusite se poustet do velkych projektu. Staci treba vybrat novou barvu, koupit pekny prehoz a polstare nebo preorganizovat nabytek. Ja take miluju udelat ocistu ve skrini a ve vecech vubec.

Takze hlavu vzhuru a preju vam co nejprijemnejsi mesic. Je to asi vse o tom jak si to zaridime a nastavime.

New furniture additions featuring Cult Furniture

It has been few weeks since I moved in to our new house and I love it. I am constantly working on improving it and making it look homely. We have had quite a bit of furniture from our previous apartment but this place is much bigger and needs some new additions.

I was looking for those items that can add luxury touches to my new home but can be versatile and I can move them around if needed. I wanted pieces that can be used in the living room as well as the bedrooms or I could use them for filming background for my videos. I knew I wanted to buy a lovely floor lamp as that was one item that we could not fit in to our old apartment. Although it was big enough we just had too many things already and it would not fit anywhere. I chose this Mala Harpin Tripod Floor Lamp from Cult Furniture. I feel its modern yet chic design will fit our existing furniture and I can use it in any of the rooms. At the moment it is that great feature item for our living room and I love how it looks there. I picked neutral tones as that is simply safe option for my taste and my current decor.

I was also after a chair or armchair that would feel more classic and I could use it again in any of the rooms. If we had more guests and our sofas would not be enough this could be used or I can simply use it in one of the bedrooms for more decoration purposes. It can also be that item that makes your empty corner more homely and you can enjoy cup of tea and favourite book in it. I was deciding in between two models but in the end opted for Keaton Armchair in grey. I love the fact it is velvet fabric which I feel is very trendy in home decor at the moment but the fact the armchair has got wheels was a great feature for us. It enables me to move it around and suit our needs. So this item is simply a winner and it already fits our home in the best possible way.

I am so delighted with both items from Cult Furniture and cannot wait to keep improving our new home even more.

Uz je to par tydnu co jsme se prestehovali do noveho domu a mam opravdu velkou radost. Pomalu upravujeme co je treba a snazime se vytvorit prijemny domov pro nas vsechny. Z predchoziho bytu jsme meli docela dost nabytku, ale tim, ze dum je vetsi, je treba par novych veci a to bude asi postupny proces.

Chtela jsem si poridit par veci, ktere budou fungovat ve vsech mistnostech a budu je treba moci pouzit k toceni na youtube. Velmi casto vyhledavam veci, ktere budou vypadat dobre ve vsech nasich mistnostech, protoze me zkratka bavi veci menit podle potreby ci chuti. Jednou z veci kterou jsem vzdy chtela, ale v nasem predchozim byte na ni nebylo misto, byla velka lampa. Jelikoz mam rada spise neutralnejsi veci ( i kdyz to se take casem muze zmenit) vybrala jsem si tuhle krasnou Mala Hairpin lampu. Prijde mi velmi sik a zaroven moderni a velmi se nam hodi do obyvaciho pokoje. 

Dale jsem si prala novou zidli nebo kreslo, ktere by se hodilo kamkoli, at jej muzu pouzivat dle potreby. Pokud napriklad prijde navsteva a nebudou stacit nase pohovky je dobre mit alternativni sezeni. Zaroven jsem chtela, aby kreslo mohlo byt pouzito treba k toceni a mohla ho pouzivat dle svych potreb. Rozhodovala jsem mezi dve modely, ale nakonec vyhralo tohle kreslo Keaton v sede barve. Libi se mi, ze je ze sametu, coz je momentalne v oblasti dekoru velky hit. Navic ma tohle kreslo kolecka, coz mi usnadnuje premistovani z mista na misto a to je presne co jsem si prala. 

Jsem rada, ze jsem tyhle kousky do domu poridila a tesim se na dalsi vylepsovani. 

Love Glamazon xoxo

CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2018


Christmas is round the corner and with that in mind my 2018 Gift Guide is here. This year I have included more fashion and beauty items and less technology as I thought after a long year women should treat themselves to something beautiful and you should treat others the same way. Let’s bring beautiful things to us and feel the luxury. I have tried to include smaller items that could make a great stocking filler as well as gorgeous fashion and beauty items.

This stunning pink blouse would make a great gift as it is something you can wear dress down or dress up. I am also loving the Marc Jacobs Luminizer as it is such a luxurious gift and the packaging and the mirror are simply perfection. What a brilliant product to be found in the stocking.

Vanoce jsou za rohem a proto prinasim i tento rok tipy na darky. Tento rok jsem zahrnula spise kosmetiku a obleceni a mene technologie, protoze jsem si rikala, ze kazda zena si zaslouzi neco krasneho, aby se mohla hyckat a udelat si radost. A tu radost muzete udelat i vy ostatnim zenam, ktere mate radi.

Snazila jsem se zahrnout i drobnejsi darky, ktere by se vlezli do Vanocni ponozky, protoze ty jsou tady v Britanii tradici. Kazdopadne tato ruzova bluzka me hodne zaujala a myslim, ze se da vyuzit jak na den tak na vecer. A vybornym mensim darkem, ale velmi praktickym diky velkemu zrcatku je tento Luminizer od Marca Jacobse.

Fragrance gifting for the whole family

Christmas is getting so close and so many people may struggle what to get for the people they love. I firmly believe that  fragrance is always a good idea. I know my entire family loves a perfume as a gift and that makes shopping for them much easier.

The only issue I always have is that you cannot post perfumes out of UK so I usually use a Czech online shop Elnino for any purchase of this sort. It is amazing for people in Czech as they stock even brands like Jo Malone and to be fair not every town will have good stores stocking luxury perfume brands. It is super easy for anybody to order online whilst having cup of coffee at home.

If you follow me on youtube you probably have seen my last Product empties video where I talked about my teenage years fragrance and that is Burberry weekend. This old classic scent will always bring memories and I will never get bored of it. And that is a small treat for myself to be honest.

This year I went for combination of the traditional scents my family loves but in few cases I decided to experiment a bit. I chose this Karl Lagerfeld Classic which is a great value and also cool scent by Zadiq & Voltaire Girls can do anything. My mum fell in love recently with Giorgio Armani Si Passione which I don’t blame her to be honest. It is a fragrance I have myself and everything about it is wonderful including it’s bottle.

Vanoce se blizi a protoze mam opravdu shon, snazim se letos byt opravdu o krok v pred a poridit darky s predstihem. Ja pevne verim, ze darovat nekomu parfem je ve vetsine pripadu trefou do cerneho. Alespon moje rodina miluje dostavat parfemy a tak vlastne nakupy na Vanoce jsou pro me v tomto smeru jednodussi.

Muj problem nastava tehdy, kdyz chci parfemy z Britanie odeslat, protoze to je zakazane a tak casto pouzivam sluzeb e-shopu Elnino. Ceny jsou dobre a hlavne maji skvely vyber. A navic neprodavaji jenom parfemy. Sama vim, ze mensi mesta treba nemaji moznost luxusnich drogerii, kde byste podobne veci mohli koupit a napriklad maji na sklade i veci od znacek jako Jo Malone, ktere se daji poridit jenom v Praze ci vetsich mestech a tak se da vse objednat z pohodli domova.

Jestli me sledujete na youtube, tak jste mozna videli posledni video o spotrebovanych produktech a jedna z mych srdcovek je klasika Burberry weekend. Je to vune mych pozdejsich pubertalnich let a prijde mi takova vesela. Mam k ni zkratka vztah a vzdy asi i budu. A tak jsem si poridila malicky flakon pro sebe a skvele je, ze se mi da i do mensi kabelky. 

Letos jsem se rozhodla vybrat pro rodinu jak klasiku tak trosku experimentuju a zaujaly me tyto vune od Karl Lagerfeld Classic a Zadiq & Voltaire Girls can do anything. Panska vune od Lagerfelda je cenove opravdu vyhodna a tak se urcite hodi pro ty, co nemaji na nakup darku velky rozpocet. Moje mama se v posledni dobe zamilovala do vune Giorgio Armani Si Passione, kterou mam doma i ja. Je to velmi luxusni svezi vune a mam rada  i jejich cerveny flakon, ktery krasne vynikne. 

Fahrenheit by Dior has been my dad’s favourite for many years. To be fair I have tried to gift him other fragrances but he is always coming back to this. So no point to experiment anymore if that is what he loves. Another popular fragrance for guys is Calvin Klein Euphoria Amber Gold. I cannot forget to recommend the classic Chloe as that has always been high on my list of fragrances. I went through a period when it was my number one.

Fahrenheit od Diora je vune, kterou ma muj tata leta v oblibe, je to klasika, k niz se porad vraci. Zkousela jsem mu v minulosti dat i jine parfemy, ale zadna ho jeste nedokazala odvratit od jeho klasiky. A tak se toho letos drzim. Dalsi oblibenou panskou vuni je Calvin Klein Euphoria Amber Gold. Ja jsem si take prosla obdobim, kdy jsem ve velkem pouzivala tuhle klasiku od Chloe a tu take mohu jen doporucit. 

Pokud mate pocit, ze darovat samotny parfem neni dostatecne, dobrym napadem jsou darkove kazety, ktere pusobi luxusne a opravdu jsou hezkym darkem. Zkratka kazdy si najde to sve a muzete se podivat i na darkove kosmeticke kazety a vubec cokoli.

Preji vsem prijemne Vanocni nakupy.
