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. 

Love Glamazon xoxo

HOW AND WHAT TO SHOP IN BLACK FRIDAY SALES?

Black Friday is almost here and as every year so many shoppers will want to grab a bargain. I am a huge fan of the biggest sales of the year as it is right before Christmas and I  can get gorgeous super luxury items for much less. This year is even more exciting as I will be looking at home decor items and any appliances that are often in sale.

On the other hand though shoppers can get carry away and perhaps end up having things they do not want or need just because they were on sale. So why not to stick to some shopping rules to avoid those unnecessary purchases?!

Black Friday je pro mnoho lidi velkou nakupni udalosti. Popularite se tesi hlavne v USA a v Britanii, ale myslim, ze tento velky trend se uz dostava i do Evropy a dalsich kontinentu.  Neni na skodu slev v tomto obdobi vyuzit, protoze nas cekaji Vanoce a take si casto muzeme poridit drazsi a luxusni kousky za vic. Napriklad ja letos budu spise pokukovat o vecech do domu a take elektrospotrebicech. 

Bohuzel spousta zakazniku muze byt v tomto obdobi zmatena a nevi kde s nakupy zacit, co si poridit a jak. A to je normalni, protoze v tak velkem mnozstvi nabidek muze clovek ztrati prehled a zacne nakupovat zbytecnosti jen protoze jsou ve sleve. A tak jsem si rikala, ze sepisu par tipu jak na to. 

TOP TIPS

List of items you really want/Napiste si seznam veci co si prejete

It is important to have a list whether that is list of items you want or need for the house or Christmas presents ideas list. It really helps as then you can just go item by item and look for them in the sales. Is it a favourite face cream or pair of shoes? Then check for retailers that may have those offers. I have a permanent wish-list of items here so it is easy for me as I can always go and check items I like.

Je dulezite si napsat seznam, at uz jsou to veci, ktere chcete pro sebe ci nejake Vanocni darky. Je dobre potom jit podle seznamu a podivat se, kteri prodejci maji treba vas oblibeny krem ci vysnene boty ve sleve. Ja mam vlastne svuj permanentni seznam tady a tak je to pro me trosku jednodussi, ale letos si napisu i seznam zvlast s vecma do domacnosti.

Check Offers from last year/Vyhledejte si akce, ktere byly loni

A good place where to start is also to take notes each year which retailers had good offers and what sort of offers. There are lot of articles online and I often use the one I wrote previous year which you can read here. Firstly more likely these retailers will have similar offers or better and secondly this will also help you to prioritise. Some online magazines and newspapers also list tips before Friday.

Nebylo by na skodu si kazdy rok nekde napsat, kteri prodejci akci poradaji. Ja treba vzdy pouzivam svuj stary clanek z predchoziho roku, ktery mi da napady a predstavu na ktere e-shopy se soustredit. Ten si muzete projit tady. Je totiz mozne, ze stejny e-shop bude mit podobnou akci. No a ty si predem projdu a kdyz se mi na jejich strankach neco libi, tak si to dam na svuj wish-list a v patek rychle poridim.

Shop Christmas presents/Nakupte si Vanocni darky

It is one of the easiest ways how you can shop Christmas presents. So be ready. You still have time to ask your children to write a letter of their wishes or asked your loved ones if there is anything specific they are after. You can really get yourself a bargain.

Tento Cyber weekend muzete napriklad koupit Vanocni darky. A tak se na to pripravte, dneska mate do Patku jeste cas a tak napiste s detmi dopis Jeziskovi a nebo se zeptejte svych blizkych, co by si prali. A tak se muzete pri nakupech soustredit prave na tyto veci. 

Have a back up plan/Mejte vzdy pripraveny Plan B

It is always good to have a back plan. So if you want that specific TV, make sure you also have 2nd best and third best option on your list and the same comes to anything else. Black Friday can be manic and you will not have time to start to do the research on other items in the middle of the madness.

Mejte vzdy v zaloze seznam veci, ktere jsou u vas ci vasich blizkych na druhem miste. Napriklad kdyz si chcete poridit televizi a mate svuj vysneny model, ktera televize bude na druhem miste?! Muzete totiz narazit na super akci a bylo by skoda toho nevyuzit. A ja vam garantuju, ze zacit delat pruzkum trhu na posledni chvili nekde v obchode na telefonu se vam asi nevyplati. 

Use early offers/Vyuzijte drivejsich slev a nabidek

If you are really keen to shop in the sales earlier you can do so with lot of retailers. I think the competition is big and each year stores are coming up with clever marketing ways how to get ahead and bring offers already Monday that week. So here are some places you can shop already.

Jestli nechcete cekat az do patku, mate sanci. Kazdy rok konkurence prinasi akce drive a drive a letos uz muzete na spouste e-shopu nakupovat s predstihem. A tady je takovy mensi vyber.
