Outfit: Why We need more professionalism in blogging?

Wearing: Boots: Allsaints, Dress: Zara, Blazer: Zara, Sunglasses: Dior, Belt: Black and Brown

Professionalism is something that is expected in any area of work so why does it seem there is a lack of it within blogging? I have been in this industry for many years and encountered many different people. Are they all professional? No. However there are many that extremely professional and they create a good reputation in this industry. And that is the direction it should go. Sadly over the last week I came across so many stories within my circle of “colleagues” and I must say at times my jaw just dropped.

Let’s face it bloggers have been criticised so many times in printed and online publications and some critique came from highly respected people. And although the criticism probably does not apply for everybody in some ways some points are valid. Firstly there should be more respects in between creators towards each other. Some ways of communication are just not acceptable. And all it is is change the language, the tone and phrase things differently.

A friend of mine recently told me about a message on Instagram she recently got and she could not believe her eyes as somebody she barely knew asked for sensitive piece of information. On one hand I understand that being direct sometimes gets you what you need but you have to really judge these things carefully. And actions like this only create a bad image of influencers. Another friend that works within PR told me about an incident when the brand rejected a blogger’s proposition and what followed was extremely rude and aggressive response. If I was that PR I would have blacklisted that person forever as there simply would not be trust. I could not collaborate with anybody that has that sort of attitude.

Another friend got a message from an influencer that has recently started asking tell me how to make money fast! Is that so bad? No … but in the context of any other industry it is just strange. I cannot imagine that another professional for example within real estate, recruitment, audit, modelling contacts total stranger and asks them tell me how to make money fast. It is not professional way to do it and plus the tone of the message was very aggressive. Also hundreds of influencers share their tips on things like growth, money making and so on all over the internet. So it would question the other persons proactivity as anybody can find lot of information online and on youtube as well.

And these are just few things that made me thinking what can we do to change it. Yes if 50 % of us are going to be professional that is still only half and whoever has got dealing with the other half will get bad experience. I am glad there are extremely professional people and in some ways it is improving but it is still such a new industry, anybody can start at any minute, the competition is big and sometimes the circumstances are forcing people to act how they act.

Profesionalita se ocekava v mnoha oborech a tak premyslim, proc je ji v blogovani tak malo. Jsem pravdepodobne jedna z tech prvni blogerek a tak uz to delam nejaky ten patek a muzu rict, ze jsem potkala spoustu velmi rozlisnych lidi. A jsou vsichni profesionalni? Bohuzel ne. Nastesti je ale spousta, ktera jsou extremne profesionalni a ja doufam, ze timto smerem to take pujde dal. V poslednich par tydnech jsem slysela z kruhu svych “kolegu” pribehy nad kterymi mi zustava rozum stat a zaroven se nedivim, ze maji blogeri tak spatnou reputaci. 

Co si budeme povidat, blogeri se probirali v nekolika tistenych i online casopisech a novinach a kritika byla v hodne pripadech od respektovanych zurnalistu. A prestoze se urcite nevztahuje kritika na vsechny, nektere body me ani neprekvapuji. V prvni rade musi byt influenceri vice profesionalni mezi sebou. Nektere zpusoby jednani jsou proste neprijatelne. Vse je o tom jak mluvite, staci trosku slusnosti, spravneho tonu a  hned to vypada jinak. 

Jedna znama mi nedavno rozhorcene rikala, jak ji nekdo koho sotva zna napsal na Instagramu o prosbu, ktera si myslim, ze byla docela drza a nemistna. Ja ocenuji, kdyz jde nekdo tvrde za svym, ale tohle byl trosku jiny pripad. Druha znama, ktera pracuje jako PR mi rikala, ze jedna blogerka, ktera je oslovila na spolupraci a byla zamitnuta reagovala velmi agresivni odpovedi. Zustaval mi az rozum stat. Pokud bych ja byla v situaci te PR tak tento clovek bude zapsan na blacklistu, protoze bych jich nemohla nikdy sverit do rukou propagaci zadneho produktu.

Dalsi znama mi rikala, ze ji nekdo naprimo a velmi zvlastnim tonem napsal, at ji rekne jak na Instagramu vydelat penize co nejrychleji. Je to blba otazka? Ani ne ale jakmile si tuto situaci aplikujete na cokoli jineho, je to prinejmensim divne. Predstavte si napriklad personalistu, realitniho maklere, auditora jak vkraci ke konkurenci nebo jim napise email and napise jim, at mu reknou jak rychle vydelat penize. V tomto pripade me napada jen to, ze to musi byt nejaky linejsi clovek, protoze internet je zaplaveny tolika tipy jak rust, jak zacit a ta dana osoba si to muze proste jenom vyhledat. 

Je smutne ze ne vsichni si uvedomuji, ze kazi reputaci ostatnim, pokud se chovaji nemistne. A tohle je jenom par prikladu za poslednich par dni. I kdyby 50 % z nas bylo profesionalnich, porad je to jenom polovina. Bohuzel blogovani je neco, kde neni treba kvalifikace a nejsou urcena pravidla a je to vlastne relativne nova zalezitost. Kdokoli muze zacit prave tady a ted a to je obcas ten problem. Blogovat muze zacit starsi slusny clovek, mladsi vysokoskolak a stejne i ten, kteremu profesionalita absolutne nic nerika. Urcite se to da zmenit, ale je potreba tohle tlacit vic do sveta a ukazat ostatnim, ze profesionalni chovani je treba ve vsem.

Outfit: Slip Dresses

Wearing: Dress with Jumper: Allsaints, Boots: Givenchy, Bag: Dior

Hands up who remembers the 90’s slip dress that was pretty much transparent and Kate Moss rocked it like nobody else?

Well, you may have noticed that classic slip dress is back and it is bigger trend than ever before. To be fair I see it as a timeless piece but you know it is huge when Instagram is covered with gorgeous silk dresses and skirts just softly hugging hips of influencers and models. I have been eyeing few pieces on the high-street and totally fell in love with this stunning Allsaints one that comes with the jumper too. It is a winner right.

You can get so many outfits for one price and I swear the jumper is so soft you just want to snuggle up in it. I already wore it together and also separately and I promise what a fabulous design. I have been really loving this trend and to be fair my Pinterest has been flooded with inspiration images of slip dress and satin and silk skirts.

I have recently wore this to Pandora party where the amazing Mabel had a performance and I got so many compliments on the dress. Which is always a good sign. There will be a full video about this so make sure you subscribe to my channel as I am doing Vlogtober this year so lot of fun videos are coming your way.

So hurry up to get your dreamy slip dress so you are ready to go for the next fabulous party.

Kdo z vas si pamatuje ikonickou fotografii Kate Moss v kosilkovych satech, ktere byly prakticky pruhledne?

Asi jste postrehli, ze klasicke kosilkove saty jsou zpet, saten, hedvabi a vsechny uzasne materialy zaplavily muj Instagram. A nedivim se, je to podle me docela nadcasovy kousek, ale clovek vi, ze kdyz influenceri a modelky kazdy den pridavaji nove a nove fotky v satech, ktere jemne formuji jejich siluetu, ze se jedna o mega trend. Ja jsem v posledni dobe zaplavila svuj Pinterest fotkama techto satu a jsem rada, ze jsem objevila tento kousek z Allsaints.

Ja jsem si saty dala samotne na party s Pandorou, kde mela vystoupeni uzasna Mabel a dostala jsem spoustu komplimentu. A to je vzdy dobry ukaz LOL. Kazdopadne z teto akce a celeho dne bude i video, takze se urcite prihlaste k odberu. Tocim tento mesic vlogy v ramci Vlogtober, tak at vam nic neunikne. Tocim stridave Cesky i Anglicky :)

Outfit: Are influencers really broke?

Pictures: Dela Fard

Wearing: Shoes: Dior, Jeans: Topshop, Top: Shein, Bag: Sophie Hulme, Sunglasses: Le Specs, Belt: Gucci

So I came across randomly this video on youtube called why influencers are broke. I am a huge fan of talking positively in life so this article will have rather positive spin. I do not want to talk about people not investing their money right as there is no right or wrong. Some girls are smart and they buy houses and flats with their money earned as bloggers and some rather invest it in their bags. I am not here to judge. I can just simply chose which type I am going to be. And I can say one thing I wish I knew better when I was younger I would get on that property ladder much faster as no Chanel bag will be your roof.

There are many valid points in this video and one of them is knowing your own value. You may remember one of my older articles where I talked about it. Knowing your value is important so do not let others to set your own value. However, I still judge this case by case basis. If I know a brand X is offering me something I need lets say new ski and I would go and spends few hundreds pounds on new  ski out of my own pocket I may still do this as a part of barter collaboration. However, the best case scenario is to get paid and get the product too. I also see it from a business perspective. My dream is to grow my business and hire people and be able to reward them well. I want to be able to say to photographer here is this amount of money and thank you for your hard work. And I am afraid he or she also has to pay their bills and no ski or t-shirt will pay for their mortgage either.

To gift a blogger product is probably the cheapest way of advertising for any brand. It is up to you to set your standards. This article could go on for ages but one thing this video is 100 % right about that if people undervalue their own work they set the market for others in a wrong direction. So please do your research and there are few existing articles you can find online about how to calculate the fee.

I feel that I am surrounded by influencers that are not broke at all. It may be because that those are few people that do really well or know their value or they can handle the money really well. Who knows. Or it may be because I like to surround myself with successful  people.

There are so many other topics from the video I could talk about however I felt the matter of value is again the most important thing in life and in business and that is the message I want to bring to you.

Uplne nahodne na me dneska vyskocilo na youtube tohle video s nazvem proc jsou influnceri na mizine? Ci jinymi slovy proc nemaji influenceri penize. Ja jsem clovek, ktery se snazi drzet pozitivniho pristupu v zivote a proto i tento clanek chci vest v podobnem duchu. Nejsem tady, abych ostatni soudila a nemeli by to delat ani ostatni. Nektere holky jsou chytre a investuji vydelane penize do nemovitosti a nektere bydli v najmu a nakupuji si drahe kabelky. Ty uspesnejsi zvladnou oboji. Ale o tomto tento clanek neni. Kazdy ma pravo si s penezi nakladat jak chce.

V tomhle videu je spousta bodu, se kteryma ja osobne souhlasim a jeden z hlavnich je znat svou cenu. Uz jsem o tom drive napsala clanek, ktery si muzete precist tady. Je dulezite znat svou hodnotu a to myslim uplne vazne. Uprimne vam muzu rict, ze vetsina spolupraci, ktera mi chodi k nabidce z Ceska je pro influencery totalne nevyhodna. Ja o ceskem blogerskem trhu vim docela malo, ale prekvapuje me, ze firmy jeste stale trvrdi, ze nemaji rozpocet. Darovat nekomu produkt je sice hezke, ale influencer si s tim hypoteku nezaplati ze? Ja se snazim na kazdou nabidku divat individualne. Kdyz napriklad vim, ze potrebuju nove lyze, ktere stoji X a nekdo mi nabidne nove lyze, tak na spolupraci ve forme barteru asi kyvnu. Idealni a zcela bezne je samozrejme oboji a to dostat nove lyze a take zaplaceno. Ale je to na vsech, aby si urcili svou hodnotu. V jednom ma video pravdu, ze influnceri, kteri se podcenuji tak znehodnocuji praci a hodnotu ostatnim. Kazdopadne muj cil je rust a platit lidem, ktere si najim napriklad fotografy za jejich dobrou praci. Oni si stejne jako ja nezaplati hypoteku trickem ci novou rtenkou ze? 

Ja si nemyslim, ze influenceri jsou na mizine, naopak lidi se kteryma se bavim ja jsou velmi uspesni a zvladaji tuto praci na plny uvazek velmi dobre. Jsou schopni si bud platit najem ci hypoteku, plati vsechny ucty a uzivat si zivota jakoby by pracovali v relativne dobre placenem zamestnani. Jenom clovek musi lepe hospodarit s penezi, protoze muzete mit mesic bez velke zakazky a z toho vam dalsi mesic prijdou do cesty treba ctyri. 

V tomto clanku bych mohla navazat i na dalsi body ve videu, ale hodnota a vase cena je to hlavni na ktere jsem se chtela zamerit, at uz si z toho kazdy odnesete neco jineho.

Outfit: How to dress up a simple jumper?

Pictures: Hazel Hurley

Wearing: Boots: Emilio Pucci, Bag: Chloe, Skirt: Storets: Sunglasses: Dior, Jumper: H&M

Simple jumpers like the one I am wearing are my favourite things for winter. I love to layer them, I love to wear them with jeans, leggings, leather trousers or short skirts however there are ways how to dress them up. It is simply unique plain piece that offers lot of ways how you can style it.

This is exactly that styling when you can dress up something as simple as a plain jumper in camel colour. However the same look would great with other colours too whether you pick red, blue, green or yellow jumper. Just take a ruffle more dressy skirt and lovely boots and a new look is there. I think it is a great way how to play around with different boots and some cool girls could even wear it with trainers.

And with weather hopefully getting better you can soon throw on leather jacket or blazer for a perfect spring look. I cannot believe spring is behind the corner and Mother’s day on Sunday. I am off for a weekend in Cotswolds but already celebrated in advance with some of my favourite brands. If you want to find out more you can watch my latest video.

Jednoduche svetry jako tento, co mam na sobe jsou mym oblibenym zimnim kouskem. Daji se velmi dobre vrstvit a nosit k dzinum, leginum, kozenym kalhotum, kratkym suknim a vubec ke vsemu. Je to zkratka ten kousek, ktery je sice jednoduchy, ale hodne jej vynosite diky univerzalnosti.

A tento styling je presne ten, ktery vas svetr trosku pozdvihne. Staci jej doplnit hezkou volanovou sukni a k ni treba kotnickove kozacky. A svetr nemusi byt jenom v odbobne velbloudi barve, muzete si vybrat treba cerveny ci modry. Staci jenom pridat hezkou delsi sukni a podpobny styling je na svete. A uz se snad bude lepsit i pocasi. 

Hned jak bude tepleji, staci misto kabatu kozena bundicka ci sacko a perfektni jarni styling je na svete. Nechce se mi verit, ze uz je brezen a v nedeli svatek matek tady v UK. Ja se chystam na vikend do Costwolds, tak to oslavime tam, ale uz jsem mela mensi predvoj diky krasnym akcim, ktere poradali Jo Malone a Guerlain. A pokud chcete videt vice, muzet tak ucinit v mem posledni videu
