Are there real friendships in blogging industry?

Growing up I remember stories about models and about how they are trying to harm each other and put nails in other girls shoes? And I thought is that really true? Are they so blinded with competition they would hurt others in such pathetic way? I have never been a high fashion constantly booked out model but I have done commercial work, was going round castings in London too and the truth is I never came across anything like that. Lot of my friends  are still in modelling industry and although you hear some stories you also see friendships…I am talking strong friendships for life. These girls support each other, they are now married and some sadly divorced and some with children and they help each other in tough times but still share the happy moments in their life. They are true friends and that is not on the merit of number of likes, type of jobs they were working but based purely on their qualities, what they love and how they are.

In lot of ways I always compare modelling to blogging. There are so many similarities I can think of but is it similar with friendships? I personally love hanging out with other bloggers, I love to chat about what we have in common and that is fashion and beauty. I have met some amazing people thanks to what I do and I am grateful for that. Do I have friends in blogging? Yes. However from some strange reason some friendships in this industry come and go which also can be natural in life too. I believe people come to your life for a specific reason. You are meant to teach them something or they teach you something. Some friends can come for short periods and some stay your friend for years. I simply believe once the lesson is over the friendship can naturally goes away. And there is nothing wrong with that it is a natural way of life and karma.

I heard some awful stories about friendships in blogging however I want to stick to stay positive so do not want to go to detail about it. I tell you where I stand and how I see it. I believe blogging is like any other industry yes you can have friends but you also remain to be professional, you network and you build up your network further. It is natural, there is always part of business in this. If you name any industry whether that is film, fashion, law, advisory, venture capital etc. people know their “competitors” they can have business meetings, they meet at networking events as they know they can all benefit from each other in many ways even if it is only expanding on their market knowledge. They are able to talk about latest trends in their field, they are able to have a small talk and get on. And that is important.

So I believe there are some friendships but also lot of business “transactions” going on in blogging. And that is also fine as you simply would have tons of friends and friendship needs a bit of love and maintenance. You have to invest in real friendships and treasure it and you simply could not do it with everybody. There are apparently 505 million blogs based on figures from 2018 so that clearly shows you cannot maintain so many good quality friendships. We all can  remain professional though and keep this industry going in the right direction so there are no ugly “friendship” stories, there are no users, no victims and hate. If anybody wants to see this more as a business that is OK too but we can still support each other.

 Kdyz jsem vyrustala, hrozne jsem obdivovala modelky a uz v nejakych deseti jsem si strasne prala take byt ta kraska, ktera brazdi mola. Neptejte se proc, nejak vnitrne to tam zkratka bylo. Na druhou stranu me uz v brzke puberte sokovaly pribehy o zasti modelek a o tom jak si navzajem nechavaji hrebiky v botach. Je to ale vubec pravda? Dnes premyslim, zda by nekdo byl tak ubohy, aby ublizil jenom kvuli tomu, ze citi konkurenci. Ja jsem nikdy nebyla zadna top modelka, spise komercni prace bokem a obrazeni nejednoho castingu v Praze a v Londyne, ale uprimne jsem se osobne s nicim takovym nesetkala. Spousta mych kamaradek stale pracuji jako modelky a muzu rict, ze maji mezi sebou pratelstvi tak silna, ze by mohl kdekdo zavidet. Pratelstvi, ktere zaruci, ze vas ten druhy podrzi v tezke situaci, ale take se spolu zasmejte tak, ze se valite po zemi. A nejsou to pratelstvi zalozena na poctu lajku nebo na tom, kdo pracoval pro jakou znacku. Jsou to pratelstvi zalozena na sympatiich a charakteru cloveka. 

V hodne aspektech mi blogovani pripomina modeling a vidim spousty podobnosti. Ale jak je to v blogovani se skutecnym pratelstvim? Ja osobne se rada vidam s blogerkama, protoze mame hodne spolecneho, vasen pro modu a kosmetiku a tak je casto o cem si povidat. Mam pratele v oboru? Ano mam….ale nejak mam pocit, ze pratelstvi mezi blogery prichazi a casto i odchazi. Nevim proc, ale byla jsem svedkem pratelskych vztahu, kdy bez sebe  kamaradky nemohly byt pomalu ani vterinu az se neco stalo a ted se treba ani nepozdravi. Jak je to mozne? Ja osobne verim v tom, ze lidi prichazi do naseho zivota z nejakeho duvodu, bud se mame neco naucit od nich, nebo mi mame naucit neco je. A kdyz je lekce u konce, muze zkoncit i pratelstvi. A neni treba se za to nejak trestat, je to prirozeny kolobeh zivota a karmy. 

Za tu dobu co bloguju, jsem slysela silene pribehy o druhych blogerkach, ale vzdy rikam, ze chci tento blog vest pozitivnim smerem a tak nebudu zachazet do detailu. Spis chci rict muj nazor. Ja verim, ze blogovani je jako kazdy jiny obor. Ano muzete najit pratele, ale hlavni je dulezite zustat profesional, udrzovat networking a take si budovat kontakty. Je to prirozene a i blogovani je business. Kdyz se zamyslite jak to maji jine obory, je to stejne..co treba film, prava, moda, poradenstvi, venture capital…vsichni profesionalove z oboru znaji alespon par lidi od konkurence, schazi se a ziskavaji neco jeden od druheho, i kdyby to byla treba jen znalost trhu. Kazdy vi, ze tyto znamosti vam vzdy mohou neco prinest. 

A opravdu verim, ze nejaka skutecna pratelstvi existuji, ale neni jich tolik jak je nam predhazovano na socialnich mediich. V blogovani je hodne takovych “business transakci” a to je take v poradku. Je to normalni vec ve vsech oborech.  Nejde byt opravdovy kamarad se vsema ( i kdyz nam to nekteri na socialnich mediich takto maluji). Opravdove pratelstvi neco stoji a je treba dost casu a spoustu lasky. Podle udaju z roku 2018 je na svete 505 milionu blogu a tak uz chapete, ze je nemozne byt kamarad se vsema. Co je ale dulezite je vest svet blogovanim spravnym smerem, zachovat profesionalitu, podporovat se, at uz se nikdo z nas nemusi dozvidat o vice “osklivych” blogerskych pratelstvich.

Outfit: Snake Print Coat

Wearing: Trousers: Revolve, Shoes: Givenchy, Bag: Topshop, Coat: Topshop, Necklace: Topshop, Sunglasses: Celine

Life update:

I am in love with this snake print coat and also…

How is it almost end of October? I am juggling solicitors (for sale and purchase of property), my little boy, myself, life in general and my work. Well quite a lot of going on but when it is not with me?

I am currently pinning on my home decor page like mad and looking for inspiration so if there are amazing brands I should know about let me know. It amazes me how many great house decor accounts you find that way on Instagram. It is my new thing as there is never enough inspiration right?

The tricky part is that you never know when purchasing property so I am trying not to buy anything for the house yet. And everywhere is so much tempting stuff including Christmas decorations and amazing cosy blankets. Oh man.

Anyway hopefully things will be moving faster from now on . Also I am planning awesome giveaway which you can find out more in my latest video. And you can still vote and support me in Czech Social Awards here. Just click on both icons hlasovat and log in with Facebook. Thank you.

Je mozne ze uz je konec rijna? Mezi neustalym resenim prodeje bytu a nakupu nove nemovitosti, praci, Liamkem a vubec zivotem jako takovym se clovek nestaci ani nadechnout. Ale u me to neni vetsinou jinak.

Ve volnych chvilich se bavim vyhledavanim inspirace na pinterestu a nejvice me bavi samozrejme dekorativni veci do domu. Je neskutecne, ze jsem objevila diky tomu na Instagramu novych svet a zacala sledovat ucty, co postuji pro inspiraci sve domy, jak je vylepsuji a vybavuji. Je to fakt zabava.

Na druhou stranu na me vsude couhaji super veci jako treba vyzdoba k Vanocum a nechci nic kupovat do te doby, nez nebude vse vyresene, protoze stehovat vic a vic veci nema smysl. 

No a v tom shonu stale porad tocim videa jak cesky tak anglicky a brzo budete moc vyhrat uzasny adventni kalendar od Charlotte Tilbury, takze se urcite prihlaste k odberu tady. A take me jeste dnes muzete podporit v Czech Social Awards a moc dekuju za Vase hlasy.

Outfit: How to shop my Instagram outfits via Liketoknowit

Wearing: Shoes: Versace, Trousers: River Island, Jacket: Storets, Bag: Chloe, Sunglasses: Celine

Instagram is a platform that most people love and where lot of people look for inspiration including me. I can openly say that I rarely look how I would style things in magazines. I go online and social platforms to look for the best places to eat, trending items, travel destinations and pretty much everything else.

Interestingly although so many people use Instagram including my friends I get to ask often what is that Liketoknowit and what is that little heart in the circle on my photographs. Well Liketoknowit is an app that is part of Reward style. Reward style is one of the largest affiliate networks that gathers influencers and enables us to get a tiny commission if  we influence a sale of a product. Trust me the price of the item we are wearing or promoting does not change. So you are not affected. In my opinion if I find something I love thanks to other influencer I am absolutely up for giving them a small reward (and plus it does not come out of your pocket anyway). That is called business. I may have not found the item at all so it is perfectly fine.

If you want to know what I am wearing on my Instagram pictures or are curious about other influencers you can usually tell either by hashtags or the little heart in a circle on the pictures. That means that the influencer is using Liketoknowit. You can simply download liketoknowit app and follow me there (evglamazon) and every time you like my outfit or certain item just take a screenshot of the Instagram image. You can go back to it anytime and save time asking over and over again where is the skirt from, what lipstick are you wearing etc.

You save so much time and energy by one download and by following your favourite people on the Liketoknowit app.

So happy shopping!!

Instagram je aplikace, kterou spousta lidi miluje a hleda v ni inspiraci a to vcetne me. Muzu vam otevrene rict, ze uz se temer vubec nedivam na to jak nastylovat obleceni a na novinky v mode a kosmetice v casopisech. Na Instagramu vyhledavam zajimava mista, dobre restaurace, trendy, typy na styling, kosmetiku a taky destinace na dovolenou. 

A prestoze tolik lidi Instagram pouziva, tak i moji pratele se obcas zeptaji, co je to to Liketoknowit a jak to funguje a taky co je to male srdicko v kolecku, ktere mam tak casto na fotografiich. Liketoknowit je system a aplikace, ktera spada pod tzv. Reward style, coz je affiliate platforma. Reward style shromazduje influencery a diky nim pokazde, kdyz influenceri ovlivni prodej urciteho produktu, ziskavaji influenceri maly podil z prodeje. Opravdu se jedna o par korun za produkt, takze takove ty obavy jak nekteri maji, ze kdo vi kolik jim za to tricko da ci neda, mit clovek nemusi. Pokud to teda nekoho trapi. Cena produktu se pro nakupujiciho vubec nemeni. To male procento, ktere influencer dostane jde z kapsy firmy, ktera produkt prodava. Ja osobne jsem stastna, kdyz diky nekomu objevim neco super, takze to, ze mu firma zaplati par korun z toho, ze me ovlivnil v nakupu je v naprostem poradku. 

A jak tedy na to? Pokud pouzivate Instagram a chcete vedet co mam ja, ci jini blogeri na fotografiich, tak je to zcela jednoduche. Fotografie oznacene v rohu dole malym srdickem v kolecku jenom znaci, ze influencer pouziva Liketoknowit a ze se muzete dozvedet, kde dane produkty koupit. Takze si muzete stahnout na mobilu aplikaci Liketoknowit a pokazde, kdyz se vam nejaky outfit libi udelat screenshot dane fotografie. V aplikaci liketoknowit staci sledovat influencera, v mem pripade me najdete jako evglamazon a u kazde fotky z instagramu vzdy najdete i linky na jednotlive produkty. 

Je to opravdu jednoduche, rychle a prakticke. Sledovatele pak nemusi psat v komentarich odkud je ta sukne, odkud je kabelka atd. Tyhle dotazy a komenty jsou casto prehlednutelne a navic diky jednomu stahnuti aplikace si muzete uz navzdy usetrit cas a uz se nemusite ptat se vsech vasich oblibencu odkud jsou jednotlive produkty. 

Takze happy shopping.

Outfit: Another reason why you should do what you love

I go through phases when I am shopping like crazy and then through phases when I do not. My intuition (that is actually very good) tells me that this year I will be shopping a lot. (haha) Good news for the economy right and actually good news for me as I will just ticking of items from my wish list that gives me lot of satisfaction.

Of course I am also very lucky that thanks to this job I get gifted lot of amazing items from the most amazing brands. I have go the best clothes, skincare, designer items and that it thanks to this wonderful job I do. It is just such a dream.

Looking back at those years when I blogged and also had a full time office job I must admit I shopped a lot a lot just to compensate how stressed and overworked I was in my old job. It was getting something to cheer myself up because I had a hard week or conflict with clients. A bit like when people compensate troubles with drinking or food. Well, last year when I went full time blogging I really felt that I was thinking more about spending money as I did not have the inner pressure or something that was pushing me to do it. I just enjoyed days and what I do for living.

So my message to you is that you should do what you love as it can really make a difference in the areas of your life you would not even expect.

And also if you feel like it you can watch my latest Get unready with me video. 

Casto si prochazim obdobim, kdy mam obrovskou chut nakupovat a pak treba zase ne. Minuly rok to nebylo s tim nakupovanim az tak hrozne, ale moje intuice (a tu mam hodne vyvinutou) mi rika, ze letos to rozjedu asi vic. (haha) No pro ekonomiku je to dobra zprava a pro me asi taky, protoze miluju hrozne moc, kdyz si muzu z mych wish listu odskrtavat.

Samozrejme tady nebudu psat, ze si kupuju naprosto vse. Dostavam od firem, se kteryma spolupracuji diky teto praci naproste uzasne veci. Mam opravdu stesti, ze delam, co me bavi a diky tomu dostavam luxusni kosmetiku, obleceni a dokonce uz i designerske kousky. Je to zkratka sen. 

Kazdopadne mam pocit, ze jsem casto nakupovala hlavne v dobe, kdy jsem jeste pracovala v kancelari a vedla tento blog a nakupovala hlavne v dobe, kdy jsem mela tezky tyden ci den ci se citila prepracovana. Jakobych si kompenzovala stresove situaci novym trickem ci kosmetikou. A to se opravdu zmenilo v dobe, kdy jsem zacala blogovat na plny uvazek. Nebyla uz potreba, protoze jsem delala denne to, co me bavi. Ted urcite pracuju vice a stale mi nestaci cas na vse, co bych chtela, ale i tak nemusim zahanet konflitky v praci nakupovanim. Delam zkratka to co me bavi. 

A tak vam chci rict, ze pokud je to mozne, zkuste delat praci co vas bavi, protoze nikdy nevite, jake jine zivotni sfery vam to obohati a vylepsi. 

A taky kdyz se vam bude chtit, muzete se mrknout na me posledni video a vecerni rutinu tady v CR.
