With a touch of yellow


The weather has been crazy lately, some days could be coat weather and the next day it's bikini again. I bought this kimono awhile ago hoping I will have time to go on a vacation with my boyfriend somewhere to the beach. Unfortunately, summer is over and I'm still here in London. Partially it's because I still have uni work to do and partially it's because we both are short on cash right now :(. I also bought a new bikini but I guess I will have to wear it next year then. I purchased this kimono from Missguided ( you can get it HERE) and I felt in love with it. The silhouette and the material is just so floaty and dreamy makes me feel like I'm blending in with the wind. It is a bit long for me so I had to wear heels. Trust me, it's very frustrating being short. I added a touch of yellow to the outfit, because you know... yellow is my summer color. I just love it and it brightens up the whole outfit.

Poslední dobou tady bylo šílený počasí. Jeden den je to na kabáty a druhej už zas na bikini. Vlastním toto kimono už nějakou dobu když jsem doufala že toto léto budu mít čas si zajet někam k moři s přítelem. Bohužel, už je konec léta a já jsem tu stále v Londýně. Částečně kvůli tomu že mám ještě práci do školy a taky částečně protože oba jsme na tom teď finančně špatně :(. Taky jsem koupila nové bikini ale to asi budu moct nosit až příští rok. Koupila jsem toto kimono z Missguided (Můžete koupit ZDE) a zamilovala jsem se hned. Silueta a material jsou tak pohádkový a měkkoučký jak kdybych splývala s větrem. Je to trochu dlouhé pro mě tak s tím musím nosit podpatky. Věřte mi, je to otravný být nízká.

The blue sweater


Hi everybody, I hope you all had a great weekend. I was so excited to show you this shoot because I just recently moved home and this place is just incredible. The area is so clean and modern and it has this amazing wooden way along the river which is perfect for walks and runs and obviously for me to take photos at :).
The weather in London was crazy just crazy these last few weeks so it was really hard to choose an outfit that you would feel comfortable in the whole day, but I would always rather choose too hot than too cold. I bought this sweater just a couple of days ago from Missguided (you can purchase it HERE) because fall is coming and I'm in need of something cosy. It's a off shoulder knitted jumper and it also comes in yellow, baby pink, lime, black and white. I would love to buy them all because all the colors and so pretty but couldn't afford to buy 6 the same sweaters in different colors. I also purchased another sweater in baby pink with a normal neckline from Boohoo which I also love.
When I moved home, I found so many things that I don't even remember owning. Like this clutch bag that I had for a looong time that was just laying there in my closet. Also for this outfit I wasn't quite satisfied with how the shoes go with the rest of the outfit. However, I still didn't have time to go buy a full length mirror so I couldn't look at my outfit and just realized how off the shoes were after the pictures were taken. Anyway, I will let you judge whether the shoes are okay or not :).

Ahoj všichni, doufám že jste měli pěkný víkend :) Nemohla jsem se dočkat než vám ukážu toto photoshoot protože jsem se nedávno odstěhovala a tohle místo je ták neuvěřitelné. Tato část města je ták krásně čistá a moderní a má to krásnou dřevěnou cestičku podél řeky která je perfektní na procházky a nebo běh a samozřejmě pro mě na fotky :).
Počasí v Londýně bylo poslední dobou opravdu šílený a bylo hodně těžké si vybrat outfit aby jste se v tom cítili pohodlně celý den. Já osobně preferuji radši moc vedro než moc zima.
Koupila jsem si tento svetr před pár dny od Missguided (můžete zakoupit TADY) protože podzim přichází a já potřebuju něco pohodlný a útulný. Měli tam ještě barvy žluté, ružové, lime, černé a bílé. Nejraději bych koupila všechny barvy ale finance mi nedovolili si koupit ž stejných svetrů v jiných barvách :D. Také jsem si koupila jeden ružový svetr s normálním výstřihem z Boohoo které také miluju protože jednoduše miluju růžovou.
Když jsem se odstěhovala, našla jsem tolik věcí které si ani nepamatuju že vlastním. Například toto psanícko jsem měla bůhví už jak dlouho a leželo to celou dobu jen ve skříni. S tímto outfitem jsem nebyla naprosto spokojená kvůli botám. Neměla jsem ještě čas jít si koupit zrcadlo tak jsem si nevšimla jak se boty k tomutu outfitu moc nehodily. Všimla jsem si jen potom co jsem viděla fotky. Každopádně, nechám na vás abyste mi outfit ohodnotili :).

Products that really work for oily & acne prone skin (The body shop & Origins review)


I haven't had any skin & make up posts for a while now so today I want to share with you some products that I use for my oily & acne prone skin. 
Don't get me wrong, I'm no skincare expert and my skin isn't perfect neither. However, I just want to share what personally worked for me so you can try it (I don't guarantee they will work on you too).
I suffered from oily skin and acne so much you can't even imagine. I would wake up every morning with so much oil, almost dripping from my face :( I also broke out a lot on my forehead, cheeks, and jaw areas. My skin was in a really bad condition partially because my lifestyle wasn't really the best one. When I don't have time I eat a lot of fast food, and my boyfriend likes to cook fried stuff and things with a lot of oil which has worsen my skin drastically. I also sleep late and don't drink enough water. And even I really hated my skin, I wasn't willing to change my lifestyle, simply because I have a weak will when it comes to food :(. Anyways, I hope you guys are taking better care of yourselves than I do.

So, let's start with the review. 

I have a really oily face so usually after a few hours the oil will just wash off all my make up on my T zone which can be extremely frustrating. I tried all kinds of moisturizer (Garnier shine control moisturizer, Lancome and Paula's choice etc), nothing worked. So I went on google and did some research, and found out Origins have a series of products for blemish and oil control called "Zero Oil" and the reviews were really good so I purchased a toner and a cleanser (they still have blemish pads, lotion, some kind of powder etc etc). I would have purchased the whole set but because I wanted to try them out first to see if they work and also because they are a bit pricey (£18.50 for the 150 ml toner and £18.50 for 150 ml cleanser).

Origins cleanser

Origins toner
 I had some experience with Origins before when I used their best selling Blemish gel. It worked like magic at first so I repurchased it. It would dry out all your spots just over night. However it's not a long term solution because when I used it for long time, my skin somehow just got used to it and not only it wasn't working on my spots anymore, it made some of it even worse and I also got scars even after using it. I would recommend it if you don't suffer too much from acne but just break out from time to time.
Back to the toner & moisturizer. When it comes to oily skin, these products do work to reduce it. I could see a huge improvement, my make up lasted longer and I didn't need to repowder as ofter. However, the cleanser wasn't the best for my acne since my skin prefers a cleanser with a scrubbing effect.

That was oily skin, lets move on to acne and blemishes.

I just newly discovered "Tea tree" range from The body shop which worked wonders for me. I bought almost all the products from this range including the mask, moisturizer, face wash, tea tree oil and a night lotion. (You can click on photo captions to buy the products).

Facial wash (250 ml/£5)
Skin clearing lotion (15ml/£3, 50ml/£8)
Night lotion (30 ml/£9)
Tea tree oil (10ml/ £7)
 
Face mask (100ml/£10)

The ones that I like the most are the mask, the night lotion and the oil. They work sooo well together that I have no negative things to point out. They are also very affordable which is a huge plus. They all have a pretty strong minty smell which I personally don't mind as long as they work.
My most favorite one is the Tea Tree oil which comes in a little bottle. But don't worry, a little goes a long way with this one. The smell might be a bit strong and unpleasant but it is totally worth it.
Try for yourself! I don't break out so much anymore, but I still have a lot of acne scars which hopefully will disappear soon. If I improve my lifestyle, I believe my skin will me clear in no time.

They still have huge variety of products that I can't wait to try. They also have a Tea tree body wash for people who have problems with back and body acne.
I hope this post helped and if you have any questions leave a comment or you can email me directly at deemaginationblog@gmail.com
