The Arrivals' Spring 2015 Is Here!

The Arrivals' Spring 2015 Is Here!

If there is any way to summarize The Arrivals’ brand, it's precise design, uncompromising quality, and adjustability. 

For their very first spring collection, they made a few classic denim pieces, versatile coats (including my favorite AANDO Modular Duster, where removing its sleeves transforms the garment into a vest), and (not surprisingly for the company) a few lighter-build leather jackets, perfect for adding a bit of spring-time cool to one's wardrobe.

Winter Favorites

Winter Favorites

This winter, my skin has been struggling with dryness and irritation. I needed to change my skin care routine because my skin had accustomed to my old products, and was no longer responding well. This tends to happen after a while and is completely normal. That's why it's important to change things up. These are the products that helped me (and my skin) survive the winter so far.

ELLE Czech Republic October 2014

ELLE Czech Republic October 2014

The 20th anniversary issue of ELLE Czech Republic is featuring four top models on the cover and in the main fashion editorial. I had the honor to have been selected as one of them.

I was photographed with Linda Vojtova, Denisa Dvorakova, and the legendary Daniela Pestova. The theme of the cover shoot was "All-American Girls." All of us are originally from Czech (or Slovakia), and we all have lived in New York for a couple of years.

From Monogamy to Polyamory

From Monogamy to Polyamory

What I appreciate about polyamory the most is its flexibility and its emphasis on communication, understanding, honesty, and emotional intelligence. You make your own rules. You stick to them, but you may change them as you need or as your circumstances evolve. You talk about everything with your partner(s).

Nowadays I like entering new relationships that are already open because I learned how to orient myself in an open/poly environment, I know what to expect, and I understand jealousy. However I believe there is something really interesting about starting out in a monogamous relationship and opening it up after a while.

Back To School Beauty

This is the last part of the "Back to School" series: and a very important one. Sitting at school all day is exhausting and certainly very dehydrating for our body and skin. I don't like to buy packaged water, I always bring my own water bottle and refill it multiple times a day. From the outside, I like to hydrate with Josie Maran Infinity Cream infused with argan oil, which I find to be a miracle ingredient! Argan oil may be used for skin and hair, and it perfectly balances out moisture levels. Most of Josie Maran's products contain argan oil– so does the Argan Love Your Lips Hydrating Lipstick"- which is a color-tinted lipstick in the middle enveloped by a moisturizing argan oil lip treatment. With this product, you get  a little bit of a color with a moisturized feel!

The whole lineup of Josie Maran's Argan Lipsticks!

I usually wear minimal makeup at school, just a little mascara and a blush. I love this MAKE UP FOR EVER Sculpting Kit (you can see me wearing it in this post!) With two colors in a set (you can choose a lighter or a darker version) you mix and blend until you achieve your desired shade and strength of contour. With this set I also purchased a good large contouring brush. I have to say that application of contouring powder (or a blush) is SO MUCH easier with a nice large brush like this! The evenness of application doesn't rival small size brushes– until recently I have been using only this small Kabuki brush, and I can see the difference right away- the result looks so much more professional (I like the little brush for travelling though, it can work for application of translucent powder and a blush as well).

And lastly, Bobbi Brown Beach Fragrance is a nice way to prolong memories of enjoyable, warm, sunny days!
