Hair talk

Alright guys, lets talk about hair. Because it is something we wear every single day no matter what. I’m not going to give you advices how to take care of your hair because this is a field which I don’t feel like a fish in the ocean and sometimes it affects the quality. But I will tell you which styling products I use to recreate my hair from “that thing I have to live with” to an accessory which I do like to wear and adapt it to my mood, occasion and outfit. I must note in advance that this is not an advertisement for Toni&Guy, I just really like their products and moreover now, when I don’t have to bring them from other countries and can buy them here I can treat myself as much as I want! Believe me, I’ve tried already a lot (I mean a lot) of products and what suits my hair doesn’t have to suit yours but maybe you will find something here what you’ve been searching for.

Girls in a hurry

Oops, it looks like I forgot that I have a blog. So I apologise in advance for my delay I just can’t plan my time lately and should really start to do something with it! I don’t neglect just my blog but for example my hair too. Unfortunately, no one will write a posts instead of me, but talking about hair, there are couple of helpers which can safe you from lack of time or laziness. I really don’t enjoy washing my hair, but no worries I do it (sometimes…). All of you who regularly do something for your body, I mean exercise (which I have to force myself for one hour to do it but that is another story) definitely struggle with daily hair washing. I don’t know about you, but when I work out I sweat and of course I have to seat the most on my head where it is most visible. Washing hair everyday is a big no for me so thank all bright people who invented dry shampoos!!! I’be tried a number of them already, some of them don’t do anything, some of them does but hair looks completely white and it is impossible to…

Hello Pumpkin!

Halloween is around the corner and we are going to host our first Halloween party! And what does belong the most to the Halloween? Of course it’s pumpkin carving! It was actually one of the reasons why I decided to arrange something like this (talking about that party) – one more reason to create Halloween decorations! So today a sneak peak of my 10 kilos pumpkin carving, seems like my arms will hurt for quite a long time after hollowing out the pumpkin…:) What do we need? pumpkin (not sure if you can do it without it) marker knife (I chose a saw knife and for small details I took a penknife) big spoon and patience…

#OctoberMakeUpFavorite

October is almost over (Halloween is coming day by day, Woohoo) and I’ve found few products this month which I really like and would like to share with you. I really enjoy reading similar posts so I decided to include this column to my blog, I know, nothing original but at least I will have a summary of what I liked that month. So let’s dip into it!

Homemade Facial Treat

Lovely Wednesday everyone! The doctor recommend me to stay in bed until the end of this week which means a lot of fun for me.:( My skin looks horrible after three days of blowing my nose and sweating under the blanket in properly heated apartment. I didn’t have any mask at home which could brightened my face so I can feel a little bit like a human again, I can’t go out so I thought to make something by myself. I use spoon of honey and lemon for my sore throat so I improved this combination, added cane sugar and created peeling face mask. Lemon is a natural source of vitamin C, brightens skin tone and works against acne and breakouts. Honey is a natural antioxidant which helps to prevent ageing, locks the water in the skin and leaves it nicely hydrated while fighting against acne. Sugar cleans pores, balances skin tone and as a natural scrub removes dead skin cells. Amazing combo, right?

Sick.

What a great start to a new week! I don’t even remember the last time I was so sick. This is so when you take care of your loved one and in two days you are attacked by the flu too. I just hope we won’t be in this circle forever, taking care, having flu and again and again… So my plans are moving for an indefinite period, my program for now is making a home made ginger tea (which is a true life safer for sore throat), watching movies and sweating in sheets. Hope you will avoid that autumn flu, listen to your body and when it says it needs a rest, give it to him and do not ignore all its desperate calls. Hopefully soon with proper article!

Check Matte

Nice Monday everyone! I know that I promised more optimistic nail color as a better mood but not everything is always like we imagine. The mood has improved but the nail polish stayed in the similar color range just with different finish. I’ve always enjoyed black nails, it’s not just a color for rockers and fans of goth style anymore. On the contrary, black nails can look very elegant if the hands are neat and nail polish is not chipped. I love the combination of strictly female styling and black nails – it’s a great contrast. Lately I enjoy this matte one from Barry M, it doesn’t stay for the longest period but then I have a reason to change nail polishes as October weather does (and my weird mood).

4 Shades of Grey

Rimmel Salon Pro in 711 Punk Rock, L’Oreal Paris Infallible Nail Polish in Gris Eternal, Claire’s in Plain Jane , Kiko Nail Lacquer in 372  I’m still expecting that promised Indian summer, still looking out of the window hoping that the Sun comes out but the only thing I see is gray. So I decided I’ll match. I won’t go against the nature, right? The last two days I have a mood that perfectly correspondence with my nail polish, I just couldn’t manage anything but gray. So I alternated these four beauties, from the darkest one – grimmest mood, to the slightly nude color (it is grey just my camera doesn’t think it). Fortunately, I’m surrounded by people with good ideas so today we went to wellness, I tried three different saunas, had a little rest in a whirlpool and on that occasion my grayish gray nail polish completely peeled of my nails and hopefully all autumnal gloom went away with it. Tomorrow forecast predicts 24 °C in Prague, such a perfect weather for a trip! I will try to take some pictures at Designblok so you can see also something different here! I have to get up at 5,30…
