Treating my mum to some cake and PANDORA

Mum and I have always had a very special relationship. And I know anybody can say that about their mum however I really do feel that I have an extra special bond with my mum. She can of course be difficult at times but that is normal in relationships of all kinds.

I am a first born and looking back at old pictures for almost five years it was only myself and mum against the world. She tells me so often those were one of the best years of her life (sorry sis LOL). We all know she doesn’t mean it badly but I love to tease my sister.

When I was growing up she has always supported my choices. As a teenager I was scouted to be a model and during those years of my life she was such a huge support. When I made the choice to start blogging, my mum was by my side with nothing but encouragement. She invested so much in me and sacrificed a lot for me to pursue my fashion dreams. Our mutual love of fashion is a topic we have discussed over and over again, my mum has a great style herself.

Her fashion choices inspire me a lot. Although our styles are very different, there is one thing I definitely learnt from her. Getting older does not mean that you have to stop wearing the clothes you love. And then there is the love of shopping that we share. Whether I look back at the time when I lived in Czech or now when she comes to London to visit me, there is always shopping involved. It is like our special ritual. And this ritual is always followed by coffee and something delicious to eat. Just what girls like.

With Mother’s Day approaching I really wanted to treat my mum to something special when I last visited my homeland. As I mentioned in my previous post, I have collaborated with PANDORA jewellery to celebrate the occasion. I gifted her a beautiful jewellery set which I hope will remind her of my appreciation of her each and every time she wears it. Sticking to traditions, we also enjoyed delicious cake and flowers, just like the old days. I am so pleased I could include my beloved mum to be a part of the PANDORA DO campaign as she does represent strong, fashionable and supportive women. And although she hates being photographed, she knew how much this campaign meant to be, once again supporting me in what I do and what I love and let me to photograph her for this lovely occasion.

Thank you mum.

Vzdy jsem mela se svoji maminkou hodne silny vztah a byla mi vzdy spise kamaradkou. Je jasne, ze se obcas chytneme, to je ale normalni v kazdem vztahu. Obcas mi i rika, ze kdyz jsem byla hodne mala, asi do ctyr let to bylo jeji nejkrasnejsi obdobi v zivote (sorry segro haha). Urcite to tak nemysli, ale bavi me sestru timto trosku skadlit. 

A moje mama me take vzdy podporovala ve vecech, ktere jsem se rozhodla delat. Kdyz jsem byla mladsi byl to modeling a ted je to blogovani. A pokud to nebylo na ukor skoly, mela jsem v ni stoprocentni podporu. A navic uz i v ranne puberte me sama vedla k mode. Kdyz se me lide ptaji, kde se ta laska k mode vzala, je to urcite od moji mamy a taky babicky. Ta ma ve skrini pomalu vice dobre padnoucich kostymu nez jakakoli jina zenska, co znam. A moje maminka je na tom uplne stejne a take mame spolecnou vasen a to je nakupovani. A jestli me naucila jedne veci, je to urcite, ze zena se ma o sobe starat v kazdem veku a muze se oblekat mladistve (tim nema ale na mysli leopardi minisukne v sedesati letech, ale spise mladistve a stale vkusne). 

Jeste kdyz jsem zila doma a taky pokazde, kdyz jsme spolu at uz v Cesku nebo v Londyne, dokazeme travit treba cely den nakupovanim. A k tomu samozrejme vzdy patri i cas na kavu, jidlo ci dobry zakusek. A tak s blizicim se svatkem matek, kdyz jsem byla naposledy v Cesku jsem se rozhodla zopakovat nasi tradici a darovat ji take neco predem ke svatku matek. Vybrala jsem tuto sadu od PANDORY, koupila ji krasnou kytici a nezapomela ani na kavu a neco sladkeho. 

A jelikoz momentalne spolupracuji s PANDOROU na jejich kampani DO jsem moc rada, ze i moje mama mohla byt jejich soucasti. Je to totiz jedna z nejsilnejsich zen, ktere potkate a ty prave tato kampan oslavuje. A i kdyz se mama strasne nerada foti a nekde takto presentuje, tak to pro me i tentokrat udelala a podporila me v tom, co me bavi. 

Dekuju mami.

Fighting post baby issues with GP Nutrition

Sometimes I wish I could be one of those women that said they fit in their jeans two weeks after having a baby and left the hospital lighter than before getting pregnant. Or one of those women who say their baby slept through the night at 12 weeks. And trust me there are lot of people I know that had it this way. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.

Six months later I can finally fit in my jeans but I am still not there and I am up 10 times a night whilst I need to look after a child and run fully this blog. I need a fully functional body, I need energy and I need to lose weight. Who doesn’t?  As these are typical post baby issues most women have to deal with. Well, I cannot get more sleep as there is nobody to look after my child. I have no family here or nanny and my husband leaves 6:30 in the morning for work and comes back at 7 the earliest.

There is a next option that would definitely help and that is to eat clean food. As you can see I have gathered few books over the time and I know exactly how body works. It is about giving your body the right nutrition and balance everything out. It is a longterm solution for healthy body, great skin and sufficient amount of energy. However, these things can be so hard to maintain especially with lack of time. And then there is the other option to try to help and support your clean eating with supplements of different types. So I have partnered with GP Nutrition to try their offering to help me to fight all my post baby issues.

If you go on their site you have the option to do a test what programmes are the most suited to your needs. After doing the test I discovered (which is not a surprise at all) that my top ones are programmes SLIM Me, RESTORE Me and BOOST Me. These should really help to bring the best to my body and help to increase endurance, restore vitality, stabilise sleep patters and also balance my nutrition.

It is honestly perfect solution for busy lifestyle. Yes in my head I am always about cooking super clean dinners but the time does not let me to do it. Also on the days when I had an awful night with the baby I tend to eat badly and grab pizza instead of beetroot salad. I am sure you know the story.

What I loved about the package when it arrived was that the brand enclosed very clear intro about each programme but also easy instruction of how to use them. I am the laziest person when it comes to reading about these things so it was very handy. Second great thing is the packaging. No more excuses that the box is too big as everything is split into smaller sachets so you can take these with you. It is perfect even for a small bag or travelling. Very smart right?

And if you ask me if all this works? Yes, I have definitely seen some improvements and I have only been using these for two weeks or so. The biggest different I have noticed is when I used My Gel from the SLIM Me programme I feel my cravings are gone and also I am not that hungry. Isn’t that what we need after all?

Nekdy si preju, abych mohla rict, ze jsem jedna z tech zen, co se dva tydny po porodu vlezla do starych dzinu a odchazela z nemocnice s min kily nez pred otehotentnim. A nebo jedna z tech, kterym miminko spi celou noc uz od dvanacti tydnu. A sama mam ve svem okoli nekolik takovych zenskych. Ja to  bohuzel nejsem. 

A o sest mesicu pozdeji konecne muzu prohlasit, ze se vlezu do starych dzinu (i kdyz to jeste zdaleka neni ono) a hlavne jsem vzhuru v prumeru tak sestkrat za noc. O to je to tezsi, kdyz prakticky nemate materskou, protoze uz po dvou tydnech jsem jela naplno s timto blogem. A verte mi, ze je to prace na plny uvazek. Spanek nespanek telo musi fungovat. Jako kazda mama musim rano vstat (nekdy i ve ctyri) a uz jede klasicky kolotoc – dite, jidlo, pleny a to vse bez chuvy, babicky, sestry a jedinou oporou je muz, ktery vyrazi do prace 6:30 a vraci se nejdrive 7. 

Jak vidite za nejakou dobu jsem shromazdila nejakou literaturu o vyzvive, jidelnicku apod. A presne vim jak telo funguje. Princip je jednoduchy a da se rici, ze dosahnout idealni vahy, dostatku energie, krasne pleti a zdravi je hlavne o jidle. Jde o to se vyhybat polotovarum a jist nutricne vyvazena jidla v nich je jenom to co si telo dokaze opravdu odebrat a vzit to nejlepsi. Je to trosku slozitejsi, ale to si samy muzete precist a zjistit. Kazdopadne tyto veci muzou byt slozite, pokud mate uspechany zivotni styl jako ja. A pak existuje druha moznost a to podporit vase “zdrave” stravovani vyzivovymi doplnky. A to hlavne pokud jsou vytvoreny na presne podobnem principu jako “clean eating”. A proto jsem se spojila s GP Nutrition, ktera nabizi nekolik ruznych programu. A spousta z nich vam pomuze se zbavit presne takovych problemu jako mam ja po diteti. 

Na zaklade testu, ktery si muzete udelat na jejich strankach, jsem zjistila, ze nejvhodnejsi programy pro me budou SLIM Me, RESTORE Me a BOOST Me. A neni to snad ani prekvapeni. Diky neprospanym nocim potrebuju vytrvalost, zvyseni energie, zvysit kvalitu spanku a take upravit svoji zivotospravu. Nemyslim si, ze jim uplne spatne, ale napriklad v ty dny, kdy mam za sebou krusnou noc a ceka me spousta prace a schuzek a to jeste s ditetem velmi casto sklouznu k zabijakum jako je pizza, kava, vino apod. Bohuzel. 

Po vybrani nejvhodnejsi programu pro vas vam bude balicek dorucen a k nemu jsou prilozeny take instrukce a benefity vaseho programu. To se mi strasne libilo, protoze vse vypada prehledne a strucne a ja jsem ten nejhorsi clovek co se tyce procitani si nejakych letaku a vyhledavani toho, jak se vyrobek pouziva. Dalsi vec, ktera me nadchla je tak baleni. Nemusite se vymlouvat na to, ze vam produkt prisel ve velke krabici, kterou nechce tahat sebou. Vse je rozdeleno do mensich baleni, ktere si muzete vzit kazde rano ci do letadla. Jsou tak kompaktni, ze se jednoduse vlezou i do male kabelky. 

A po vyzkouseni techto programu musim prohlasit, ze jsem spokojena. Nejvice jsem si vsimla toho, ze kdyz opravdu pravidelne pouzivam My gel z programu SLIM Me, ze mam mensi zavaly chuti na sladke a vubec mensi hlad. A o tom prave je vyvazena strava a dulezite veci jako vyvazeni hladiny cukru v krvi. Vsechny tyto produkty jsou navrhnuty tak, aby vase telo bylo vyvazene a pokud jste jako, ze nemate cas si pokazde pripravit super zdrave jidlo, GP Nutrition je skvele reseni jak do tela dostat dulezite prvky a zbavit se ruznych problemu a to nejen tech po porodu. 

Pokud vas produkty zaujaly, muzete je poridit se slevou 10 %, kdyz zadate kod Glamazon1.

The ultimate girly day at St Martin’s Courtyard

If a massage appointment pops up on my phone calendar I am the happiest person in the world. So imagine full day of pampering, good food, shopping and great wine. I am beyond happy and more than that (simply find it hard to describe it with words). So let me take you on the journey of a day like that and introduce this nirvana for Londoners – St Martin’s Court Yard.

There is nothing better than an ultimate girly day packed with things most girls like. Whether you decide to take your sister, best friend or treat your dearest mum for upcoming Mother’s day this is the place to do it. I have never realised how handy it is to have all these facilities nearby each other and how easy it is to create a perfect day. If my mummy lived in London this is where we would be hanging around on 26th March for sure.

So let me take you with me on a little tour around St Martin’s Court Yard and make you forget that it is Monday today. I had the best time yesterday with my friend Joanne and as we are both mums this was an incredible treat. It has been the longest time I have been separated from Liam but it was so worth it.

Kdyz mi v kalendari na telefonu naskoci upozorneni, ze mam dneska masaz, tak me zaplavi pocit stesti. Takze si predstavte, ze zjistite, ze vas ceka cely den plny uzasnych veci jako kadernik, masaze, nakupy a dobra snidane a obed. Nikdy jsem si neuvedomila, jak jednoduche je zvladnout vse v jeden den, pokud se rozhodnete tento den stravit v St. Martin’s Courtyard na Covent Garden. 

Miluju takove holcici dny a tohle bylo asi nejdele, kdy jsem byla oddelena od Liamka. I kdyz se mi styskalo, tak jsem si vcerejsi nedeli opravdu uzila. Vydala jsem se na den plny zazitku s kamaradkou Joanne, ktera ma dve deti a vubec se nam nechtelo domu. Brzy nas ceka svatek matek a takovy den by byl uzasny darek pro maminku, ale treba i pro kamaradku k narozeninam ci si uzit den jenom se svoji sestrou. To uz je na kazdem.

A v dnesnim postu vas chci vzit na takovou mensi vypravu, kterou jsem si vcera vyzkousela ja.

Bye Bye 2016

1

Can you believe that another year is gone? 2016 was a year of major changes in my life, there were hard moments and happy moments. However, I feel that whatever I mention the fact I became mum just always tops it up.

When I found out I was pregnant in December 2015 I knew back then things will never be the same and was not sure what to expect. So my 2016 was full of adapting during pregnancy and even later when the baby arrived. At the start of the year I still managed to attend London and Milan Fashion Week but fighting the nausea and growing belly just made it not being the same as before. That does not change the fact I had such a great time. When I was five months pregnant I still managed to squeeze in a press trip to Berlin and then at seven months our holiday at Santorini. I knew after that I was going to be “stuck” in London. Partially it is because I am working on getting new passport with my new name through embassy and also sorting out passport for Liam. I am honestly counting days for this to be done. So I can travel again (Czech system is just soooo slow). I have a feeling that 2017 will be a lot about travelling again (maybe I will change my mind after first flight with Liam LOL).

One thing I can clearly state is that the baby did not stop me from doing things I love. It just slowed it down and made it more difficult and opened new doors. I have worked with brands that are not just fashion, I started to work more with beauty brands and also baby related brands. That does not mean this is changing into a baby blog. My goal is to actually do more fashion and prove that mums can look good and keep a great style. They just need to adapt for a bit and then they are back on track. I have worked with some fantastic brands including Bulgari, Tom Ford, Cybex, Charlotte Tilbury, Pinko, Farfetch, Armani Exchange, Johnsons & Johnsons and many more on exciting collaborations and some are still in the process (I do not want to say too much yet). I found more time to continue writing my first book and that is in the process too so I have a feeling that 2017 will be big. One of the biggest things I learnt though is the type of love you can only feel when you become a mum. The first weeks were hard and Liam is still eating at night so I have not slept straight for longer than 5 hours but I feel I love him everyday more and more. It is just incredible feeling and I am enjoying every moment.

I am thinking to start youtube videos again. I kind tapped in to it but it so much hard work. I am though ready to work hard. Maybe harder than ever and with that I believe that 2017 will be amazing. So lets cross the big fat line behind 2016 which has been shocking in general and so much bad stuff happening in the world and let’s start fresh and stay positive. I am ready for an amazing year full of exciting collaborations, time with my boy and my family and travelling.

Ani se mi nechce verit, ze uplynul dalsi rok. 2016 byl pro me zlomovy a to hlavne diky tomu, ze jsem se stala mamou. Ja clovek, ktery nemel zadne materske pudy, ale proste jsem si rekla, ze starnu a nemuzu tyhle veci nechavat nahode, protoze bych asi jednou litovala. Deti jsem chtela vzdy, ale prijde mi, ze jsem to kazdy rok odkladala, protoze jsem si proste uzivala svobody a zivota. Mozna, kdybych vedela tenkrat, ze detmi zivot nekonci, sla bych do toho uz driv. Posledni rok se hodne udalo, ale prijde mi, ze vsechno zle i spatne stejne predci fakt, ze jsem se stala mamou a tak se vlastne cely rok tocil bud kolem tehotenstvi a nebo miminka. 

Kdyz jsem zjistila koncem roku 2015, ze jsem tehotna, tak jsem se bala toho neznama. V tom roce jsem opravdu hodne cestovala a nechtela jsem se toho vzdavat a i kdyz jsem jeste par cest behem tehotenstvi zvladla, tak mi cestovani opravdu chybi a v roce 2017 si to vynahradim (treba zmenim po prvnim letu s Liamem nazor haha). Na zacatku roku 2016 jsem jeste stihla Londynsky a Milansky Fashion Week, ktere jsem si opravdu uzila a v patem mesici jeste press trip do Berlina. A taky babymoon na Santorini ve 27. tydnu. Pak uz jsem radsi nic neriskovala. Vse se i po narozeni zkomplikovalo, protoze vyridit pas s mym novym prijmenim na ceske ambasade je opravdu mise sama o sobe. Zacala jsem na tom pracovat nekdy v kvetnu a teprve ted si ho mam jit vyzvednout. Uff. No a momentalne se snazime vyridit pas Liamovi. Zaciname Irskym, protoze cesky pry trva 8 mesicu a jako druhy vyridim jeho britsky pas. 

Kdyz se clovek stane rodicem, hodne se zmeni. Pro me to bylo zpocatku tezke a hlavne i tim, ze tady vlastne nemame zadnou pomoc. Spolehame se jenom na sebe a bud hlida manzel ci ja. Na druhe strane me to nezastavilo v nicem, jenom trosku zpomalilo. Nejela jsem na zadny fashion week, jen se v rychlosti mihnula na tom Londynskem, ale co se tyce spolupraci, otevrelo mi to nove dvere. Mam za sebou uzasne spoluprace se znackama jako Bulgari, Armani Exchange, Farfetch, Tom Ford, Charlotte Tilbury, Cybex, Johnson & Johnson, Pinko a dalsi. Bylo jich opravdu hodne a momentalne mam stale v procesu opravdu uzasne projekty, takze rok 2017 bude urcite uzasny. Mym cilem je urcite nezmenit tento blog v typicky maminkovsky blog, spise se ubirat stale smerem mody a kosmetiky a promitat obcas detske clanky. Konecne jsem si nasla vice casu na psani me knizky a slibuju, ze v roce 2017 bude hotova. Radsi at si to dam cerne na bilem a to me opravdu donuti. Haha

Ja vam nevim, mam proste tuseni, ze 2017 bude rok uzasny a  rok vzestupu. Kdyz se tak podivate tak 2016 nebyl obecne pro svet nic moc a vsechno spatne musi prece jednou skoncit. Je to uzasne, kdyz muze clovek udelat velkou caru a rict si, ze zaciname s cistym stitem, nemyslite? 

A tak jsem pripravena vkrocit do roku 2017 tou spravnou nohou.

A co vy?
