5 not that glamorous habits I have … ooops!!

I used to work with a girl that always said that in her head she can run miles and she looks so good whilst doing it. She can almost feel how fit she is and see her toned muscles in motion. Well the reality was different and we always laughed together. To be fair she was saying it quite a lot and I could see where she was coming from.

Then I was thinking do we sometimes picture ourselves being amazing, looking amazing and other day dreaming “important” stuff? I am sure we are all a bit guilty. The reality is that I do so many things that are not glamorous and it is time to admit those. LOL

They are the small things I wish I wasn’t doing but when the time is precious or I just get lazy I slip back and just keep repeating these things over and over again. And I hope I am not the only on this boat.

  1. Wearing a hairband on my wrist – Yes guilty….I know it is very practical as you always have hair band when you need it but then I end up with so many images even for my website and my socials with it. It drives me mad when I see that silly hairband on my images and it is too late to take off. It is that small detail that can ruin the whole look but I guess it is that bad habit…and very hard to stop. LOL
  2. Drinking water from a mug – It can be seen as it is not a big deal but in my mind I am that glam and chic girl that drinks her water from a nice glass or cool water bottle. However I so often grab a mug at home and guess why? It is easier to wash it than a glass. LOL
  3. Paint over chipped nail varnish – I cannot stand this one but I keep doing it. I love women with lovely manicure and it almost gives me anxiety if I have chipped nail varnish but with busy lifestyle you have times when you simply do not look perfect. Sadly I am often tempted especially in a rush that I just quickly paint over the chipped nails and hope for the best.
  4. Messy handbag – Oh well, I always love to watch those what’s my handbag videos and man I feel bad afterwards….If you look at mine on a good day it is getting closer to those amazing videos but on most days you find the most random stuff from receipts, lot of lipsticks, dummy, snack for Liam and everything is just a big mess.
  5. Not wearing matching underwear – Please tell me I am not alone. I have so many lovely sets and there is no excuse to do this but I keep wearing non matching underwear most time. I always hope that when the colour is close enough it is ok…haha And then when I see in a movie a chic lady with matching underwear I just feel so guilty. LOL

Pred par lety jsem pracovala s holkou, ktera pokazde rikala, ze ve sve hlave umi hrozne dobre behat a strasne ji to jde. Popisovala mi jak se vidi jak bezi strasne daleko a navic u toho vypada naprosto fantasticky, svaly se ji rysuji v pohybu a deset mil je pro ni jako nic. Samozrejme opak byl pravdou a vzdy jsem se s nim smala, rikala to totiz velmi casto. 

A tak jsem se zamyslela a rekla si, ze ja si taky obcas ve sve mysli pripadam skvele a vse mi jde tak dobre. Jsem zkratka denni snilek….jenomze opak je realitou a je treba jit s kuzi na trh. Delam tolik veci, ktere bych nemela verejne priznavat, ale pak se vzdy zastavim a reknu si, ze tyhle zlozvyky bych mela prestat delat.  A tady jsou….

  1. Nosim gumicky do vlasu na zapesti – No ono by to nebyla az takova hruza, jenze ja vzdy zapomenu, ze ji tam mam a pak se hrozim, ze mi to nici fotky. Zadny modni zazrak to totiz neni, ale zase je to prakticke….gumicka je stale po ruce, kdyz je treba.
  2. Piju vodu z hrnku – Ve svych predstavach jsem 24/7 ta elegatni zenska, co si vodu naleva do nejake hezke a chic sklenice, opak je bohuzel pravdou a casto se nachytam, ze zase piju z hrnku. A vite proc? Protoze hrnek se jednoduseji umyva. LOL
  3. Premalovavani nehtu – Jejej…Mam hrozne rada upravene nehty a oloupany lak me desi, bohuzel ne vzdy mam cas vse cele odlakovat a prelakovat a tak casto v casovem skluzu proste chytnu lak a udelam co se nema, prelakuju ty oloupane. Ja vim…zadna bomba to neni, ale co uz nadelam :) 
  4. Neporadek v kabelce – Rada koukam na what’s in my handbag videa a vzdy si rikam, ze do idealu mam hodne daleko. Kdyz me to chytne a vse protridim a uklidim, tak se to da, ale vetsinu dni je to trosku horsi. Rada bych rekla, ze tam nosim sik diare a vse je uhledne, ale vetsinou je to tak 6 rtenek, uctenky, dudlik, svacinka pro Liamka, prazdy papir od nejake raw bar apod. 
  5. Nosim pradlo, ktere neladi – Doufam, ze v tomto nejsem sama. A vlastne na tohle neni v mem pripade ani omluva, protoze mam spoustu peknych souprav a mam jich dost na to, aby mi pradlo vzdy ladilo a presto casto sahnu po tech svych oblibenych a pohodlnych a casto je podprsenka i kalhotky uplne mimo. A pak kdyz koukam na film, kde ma zena krasne ladici pradlo tak me zase hryze svedomi. haha

House Decor: Desenio Art Touches in our New House

The time has finally come and after very stressful process of sale and purchase of the property we have moved. It took months to get here and who has ever been buying a property in UK must understand how difficult it can be especially when you are in a chain.

I am so proud we did it and although the move was tough and we did not know until the last minute if we are moving or not we officially got the keys 5th December. I am so pleased as now more fun times are coming. I want to slowly improve the place and make it lovely, cosy and create a lovely home for us.

I had my eye on some Desenio prints for a while however did not have room to play around with their amazing art in our old place. It felt so good to finally be able to pick my favourites when we moved as I know these posters will give me lot of variety and I can move them around the house according my needs. Desenio prints very quickly update any room in the house whether that is your living room, office or simply a bathroom and the selection is huge.

One of my absolute favourites is Dancer One print which I got in the largest size and I absolutely love it. I also got Pink Sky Poster and November Rain 02 in the second largest size. I wanted prints that will work well on its own as well as together and will suit my furniture and deco. And of course I could not resist and had to order Pink Paris Perfume as it is one of their bestsellers and would look awesome in an office, bathroom or simply on a dressing table.

And if you are also huge fan of Desenio like myself there is a Christmas sale on which is always good news. You can get 30% off when spending £60 (expect on frames and on handpicked-/collaboration posters). So you can get affordable art at even better price.

A je to tady po nekolika mesicich dlouheho procesu prodeje bytu a nakupu noveho domu jsme konecne u konce a prestehovali jsme se. Cely proces zacal nekdy v Srpnu a ti, kteri nekdy kupovali nemovitost v Britanii asi chapou nejlepe jak narocne to tady je.

Ale ted uz jsme konecne v novem a i kdyz veci nejsou zdaleka podle predstav, ceka me ta zabavnejsi cast a to vybavovani, vylepsovani a vse okolo designu. Uz nejakou dobu jsem premyslela o plakatech Desenio, ale v mem predchozim byte na ne zkratka uz nebylo misto. A tak jsem si hned prvni tyden po prestehovani s radosti objednala nekolik kusu. Idealne bych je chtela premistovat podle potreby a to se mi na jejich plakatech libi. Velmi casto napriklad potrebuju menit zatisi na toceni videa apod. Nejvice se mi zamlouva fakt, ze jsou cenove dostupne a behem momentu zmeni celou mistnost, at uz je pouzijete v obyvacim pokoji, kancelari ci koupelne. 

Jeden z mych nejoblibenejsich plakatu je kazdopadne tento s nazvem Dancer One a i proto jsem si ho poridila v nejvetsi mozne velikosti.  A plakaty November Rain 02 a Pink Sky Poster jsem si poridila v druhe nejvetsi velikosti. Chtela jsem si vybrat takove, ktere budou vypadat dobre zvlast i dohromady. A nemohla jsem odolat jejich bestselleru Pink Paris Perfume, ktery bude urcite vypadat v kancelari ci koupelne. 

A pokud se vam veci od Desenio libi, prave probihaji Vanocni slevy a muzete si poridit plakaty se slevou 30 % pokud utratite 60 £ a vice (sleva neplati na ramy a specialni kolaborace). 

Love Glamazon xoxo

How to make February more glamorous

SHOP THE LOOK

January is gone. Yay for lot of people. I remember when I used to work in an office how people did not like January. There were constant complaints about lack of money after Christmas, lot of moaning, evenings in and beans on toast for lunch. People were saving money, eating healthy and almost stopped having fun. And social media isn’t much different however people on social media do not show the real face so it is more about being vegan for a month and dry January.

And although February still means cold weather and for some people it is still that “boring” period of the year I want to cheer you up and motivate you and show you how can you bring more fun and glam to your winter days.

  1. Throw a party – It can even be pyjama party however try to make it special. Invite your friends, bring lovely eye masks and start the evening with bubbles, good movie and nice canapés. The whole point of this to make it more glamorous and it is all about the small touches. If you can go big, throw a property party with nice food and cocktail dresses. Just keep a touch of glam whether it is nice wine glasses, good quality wine or lovely presented food.
  2. Buy something nice – Treat yourself. If you do not have big budget you can buy a nice lipstick. I am now so much into the new range of Dior Lip glow. It is for everybody as it is more tinted lip balm. I have been using the original for many years so it is such a treat to have option of new colours. Or it can be a nice treat like a cashmere scarf something that will give you a sense of luxury.
  3. Experiment with makeup – When we look good, we feel good or at least that is in my case. All of a sudden I feel more confident and I feel more glamorous. So why not to change something in your every day makeup. Who says that you cannot do more dramatic eyes on dress down Friday in the office? Put on that new lipstick or just look glam even when you have a weekday cinema date.
  4. Make your own cocktails – Even if you want to make your evening with favourite series more special this is worth it. Imagine sipping tasty cocktail from lovely decorated glass from your sofa watching Netflix. Touch of luxury and happy taste buds will make the difference.
  5. Do a cool workout class followed by a healthy brunch – Every time I go on social media or open my favourite magazine I find a new way how to work out. It is a fabulous way how to change your routine. And how about to go with your girlfriends and find the hottest spot in town for a brunch afterwards.
  6. Be part of Fashion Week season – I am not saying you have to sit front row but make fashion week part of your life. There are options how to stream the shows live and you can get the feel for new collections. You can even do it with your friends and organise a lovely afternoon in your flat and discuss the collection afterwards.
  7. Add one glamorous piece to your look every day – I love earrings and also my Chanel brooch. These things can add so much glam to your ordinary jumper. It is about making things more special, luxurious and feel good.
  8. Dine in style – If your budget does not let you to try a new restaurant or a luxurious brasserie you can dine in style at home. Find a new recipe and remember it is all about presentation. Even a simple roast chicken will look more high end if you serve it differently.

I wish you all successful and happy February and try to bring as much glam and luxury as possible. And remember luxury can be just to have time for yourself.

Leden je za nama a diky za to. Pro spousty lidi je to jeden z nejdepresivnejsich mesicu v roce. Velmi dobre si pamatuji, kdyz jsem jeste pracovala v kancelarskem kolektivu, jak lide nemeli radi leden. Porad si stezovali, ze musi setrit (to vite po Vanocich), jedli skrome, nechteli pit, ci drzeli dietu. A leden se pro vsechny vzdy tahnul. A tak nejak se vzdy vsichni tesili, az tento mesic skonci. 

A tak tu mame unor. Dalsi zimni mesic, ktery se muze nest v nudnejsim duchu. Uz se mozna nestmiva az tak pozde, ale jeste je zima, ponuro a lide se tesi na jaro. A tak me napadlo sepsat clanek s tipy, jak si tento mesic zprijemnit. Nejsem zastance extremu a proto ani uplne nesouhlasim, ze lide po obzerstvi pak proste propadnou an mesic veganstvi, jenom protoze je leden. Ocista je vzdy dobra, ale nemusi byt zrovna leden, aby jste se k ni odhodlali. A jak si teda ja budu zprijemnovat dalsi mesic?

  • Usporadejte vecirek – a muze to byt pyzamovy vecirek s kamaradkama, ale udelejte si ho lepsi. Kupte si treba sampanske ci prosecco, prineste si krasne ocni masky, udelejte si nehty u hezkeho filmu a udelejte si dobre jidlo, ktere taky hezky vypada. A pokud je vas rozpocet vetsi, klidne usporadejte poradnou party, kde urcite dress code – coktail party. A proc ne? Je sice unor, ale jde o to udelat neco takoveho prave v unoru.
  • Kupte si neco pekneho – Ja jsem se zamilovala do nove kolekce Dior Lip Glow. Originalni lip glow pouzivam jiz nekolik let a prijde mi skvele, ze si muzu poridit nove barvy. Muze to byt ale treba nova kasmirova sala, zkratka neco co vam doda pocit luxusu.
  • Experimentujte s makeupem – Nemusite si na sebe nalepit flitrove rasy, ale staci mala zmena. Co treba v patek do prace udelat vyraznejsi oci, ci si dat sytejsi rtenku. Staci mozna zmenit jednu vec. Ja kdyz mam hezky makeup, tak se citim uplne jinak.
  • Namichejte si koktejl – Jak si udelat normalni vecer doma u televize trosku jiny? Co tak si namichat nejaky dobry koktejl, sklenicku si nazdobite a prece jenom vecer u oblibeneho serialu nabyde trosku vice luxusu. Je to tak jednoduche.
  • Zkuste nove trendy cviceni a pak si zajdete na zdravy brunch – Pokazde, kdyz otevru Instagram ci oblibeny casopis, najdu nejake nove trendy cviceni. A myslim, ze je to prijemny zpusob jak trosku zmenit rutinu. A muzete si na hodinu zajit s kamaradkama a po te si rezervovat brunch v krasne restauraci ci kavarne. Udelejte si proste radost tim, ze vyzkousite veci a mista, ktera jsou “IN”.
  • Zucastnete se tydnu mody – A nemyslim tim, ze musite zjistovat jak se to dela. Muzete proste k vam pozvat kamaradky a podivat se na par prehlidek v primem prenosu. A po skonceni, muzet probrat, co se vam libilo. A samozrejme to muze byt u dobre kavy ci vina. To zalezi na vas. Jde o pocit, udelat neco jineho a prinest trosku mody do vaseho zivota.
  • Pridejte nejaky glam ci luxusni kousek k vasemu outfitu – Ja rada nosim svoji Chanel broz, ale opet to nemusi byt zavratne drahy kousek. Co treba bizuterie z retezce, ktera pusobi luxusne ci jinak uvazany satek. Jde o to neco zmenit a citit se dobre.
  • Jezte stylove – Ten kdo me sleduje delsi dobu, vi ze casto pisu i o dobrych restauracich. Rada zkousim novinky, restaurace, ktere jsou vyhlasene. Ale kdyz vam dam tip, at jite stylove neznamena, ze tim myslim jit do restaurace a utratit tam penize, ktere treba potrebujete na neco jineho. Ale muzete si napriklad vyhledat dobry recept a hlavne i kdyz veceri varite doma ji hezky presentovat. Hezka presentace a jak je jidlo naservirovane totiz udela hodne.

A tak vsem preju prijemny mesic unor a hlavne si ho uzijte. A hlavne si pamatujte, ze luxus muze spocivat i v tom, ze si udelate vice casu sama pro sebe.

Love Glamazon xoxo
