Interview with Fashion Designer Michaela Vybohova

Hi There..... Would you like to learn some new insights into the fashion industry? Are you ready for another Fashion Designer interview? 

Maybe you weren't ready to read my fashion designer interview, and you are reading this some time after I published my blog post because you were doing Christmas shopping. I sure hope you got everything you need and have your feet up on the couch by now. Don't you just love that feeling after walking around all day? 😌

Rest and a hot cup of cocoa, perhaps with some whipped cream. Since my Gastric Bypass, I can't drink it anymore the way I used to. Most of you might not celebrate Saint Nicholas day, but a lot of West Christian countries do. The good man always brought a lot of toys and chocolate figures to well-behaved children. 😍

We ate a lot of the chocolate but our mom also used it to make us that lovely cup of cocoa. It was super easy. All she had to do was put a small pan on the stove and drop in some small pieces of the chocolate. Heat it and done. 😀

My favorite time was on Sunday morning when mom had gone to the baker for some fresh buns. I would just spread butter on it and dip them in my hot cocoa. Delicious, I assure you. 😋

Those were such fond memories, but let's get back on track with that fashion designer interview I promised. Who is the lucky one that gets featured this time, or perhaps I should be happy to feature her. 😊

Michaela Vybohova is 26, and she's my star for today. She is the founder and fashion designer of Michaela V footwear and a model with Wilhelmina. 


What kind of work do you do, or what are you studying to be? 

My day job is still a fashion model but since I started my own brand I had to be in every position from designer to ceo to marketing to warehouse fulfillment to janitor. 

What made you decide to become a Fashion Designer?

Since I was little I loved high fashion, I used to watch shows, collect editorials. I’ve had my favorites, but we couldn’t afford it. 
When I started modeling and got to meet some of my heroes and work for them, I always thought of every girl just like me and wondered what can I do to contribute, if even a little. I decided to make, create a line where the 2 worlds of quality, fashion would collide, and cut the margin to the best I can. 
That’s how Michaela V footwear started. 

Is fashion important to you? Why?

It lets you show who you are without having to say a word.

What are your successes, and how did you achieve them?

I think one of my biggest successes was starting my company, and it was not a simple journey. It took some serious blood, sweat and tears, but there’s no better feeling than having someone tell you they love wearing your shoes. 

Picture provided by Michaela

Is the name of the Brand important to you when you buy clothing?

Not at all, but I am a sucker for quality. As long as it’s an excellent material, I couldn’t care less about a brand's name. 

Describe your personal style of clothing?

If Hillary Clinton had a passion for heavy metal lol.
I love my leather pants as much as I love my blazers and dressy shirts all together. 

How did you find your personal style? Do you have a signature look? 

I think it depends on how I feel that day. 
But my signature I guess is leather pants, and a tailored shirt. 

Do you have an influence on other people’s clothing style?

Couple of my girlfriends will send me pictures sometimes “omg I look like you today” it always makes me laugh and I pretend that I have no clue what they are talking about. 

What are in your eyes the best trends at the moment?

I try to not follow trends and wear what makes me the most comfortable and confident. 
But what I’m seeing more are natural gem colors and I’m all here for it. I love it. 

What are in your eyes the worst trends at the moment?

I don’t think there is such a thing. If you love something, go girl! Or man. 

Picture provided by Michaela

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Confidence is sexy, therefore dress accordingly to whatever “floats your boat” and makes you feel good. 

Who is your style icon and why?

My momma, she always looks like a million bucks on any kind of budget, I don’t get it but clearly she does :)

Is there something else you would like to share with us?

Just that no matter who you are and where you are, I believe in you and you can make anything happen.



Thanks for filling in my questions, Michaela. By the way, both you and your boots are stunning.

If you are in for some more reading, why not check out some of my earlier fashion designer interviews.

Hope you like my blog.....Until next time.....Have a nice day

Learn about Birthday gemstones - What are Zodiac Birthstones

Hi There..... Have you always been curious to know more about zodiac birthstones or your birthday gemstones?

I have often seen other people write about their zodiac birthstones but never knew what mine was. It made me curious, so I asked someone who I knew would know all about them. 😊

Irina

Her name is Irina, and she is the founder of Tsarina Gems.
She helped me before with a blog post on how to clean and store your jewelry. It's great to know that there is someone out there if you have questions about jewelry. I mailed her and got a response the day after, already. What more could a woman ask for. 😉

Picture by Irina

She is a certified gemologist, a diamond- and colored gemstone expert. If you want something one of a kind, you should really visit her website. You can even book a free connection call with her to tell her what is important to you so that she can make a perfect piece of jewelry just for you.

My custom order

I used to love it when I still had an Etsy shop if someone asked me to make something tailored. Although, there was one time when it got me extremely mad. The customer asked me to make something I had never done before and gave me her specific measurements. 😟

Because it was something quite difficult, I went and bought myself the book Contemporary Geometric Beading from Kate Mc Kinnon. The customer asked me to make the Fortuneteller Bangle, and so I did. The picture below is a pink version I made. 😎

Picture by Seadbeady

When I finished, it surprised her completely, and she asked me how I accomplished that. I told her I bought the book, and she wanted to get a copy of the pattern to try it out herself. She never intended to buy the bangle. All she wanted was the pattern. Ooh, that made me extremely happy. 😏

The end?

No, of course not, so there I was with a custom-made bangle. The book was not a loss, but would I have bought it otherwise? Probably not, so this is the end of that story. 😕

Ah, no, it's not. She bought the bangle 2 months later, as I was doing Christmas sales at a reduced price. At least now it was sold, and I got the price of my beads back. Wait, this is still not the end. She lashed out at me for not giving her the pattern by giving me a terrible review. All's well that ends well, but no happy end to this story. 😢

Zodiac birthstones

Perhaps we had better change the subject to these birthday gemstones that you are eager to know more about. Below you can find a list of the gemstones. 😍

With a tip from Irina, I found some information on https://www.gia.edu/birthstones

Zodiac birthstones appeal to audiences around the world regardless of gender, age, nationality, or religion. They carry secrets, attributes, and lore that are unique to each gemstone. 

There are countless myths and legends around the many unique powers and attributes that zodiac birthstones have. Whether you believe these legends or not, it’s hard to disagree that learning about birthstones can be educational and entertaining. Discover what makes your birthstone a powerful statement of your finest qualities by clicking on the month you were born in below.

Where To Find 19 Great Gifts For Men and Women - Beauty Gift Guide - 12/2021

Hi There..... Are you a fan of the Holiday season? Do you like giving or getting great gifts? 

To me, it all depends on who the gifts are for. Sometimes it can be super hard to find that one great gift for that special person. That's one of many reasons I love making these gift guides. It's who I am. 😉

No, of course I am not a gift or gift guide, but I love helping people find that one great gift, or two, or maybe more. That's the fun part of giving, seeing the twinkle in someone's eyes when they unwrap their gift. 😍

Just like my dad, I love to wrap my gifts in several newspaper pages, and sometimes I add some extra tape to make it harder to open. I know, I'm bad. It's just like in a fairytale. Someone always has to be the bad guy, or girl, in my case. 😈

Enough about me, let's dive into this new beauty gift guide. You are lucky I didn't wrap this one in newspapers. 😏

Mata Hair oil $31.00



A blend of the past and the present was the ideal gift passed onto me by my parents. Ayurveda, a foundation filled with love to radiate your inner and outer being. This is the gift I want to share with you, a holistic way to feel powerful and beautiful. Through Mata Ayurveda, it is my intention to start a non-profit to empower others to find healing. 

Ayurveda is one of the world's oldest holistic systems of healing. In Sanskrit, Ayurveda means “science of life.” Ayurveda believes in maintaining the health of body and mind through learning about our unique constitution, which is determined by the exact moment of conception. 

This is our blueprint, and it consists of five elements: Ether, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. If imbalances occur because of the influence of various factors (age, socioeconomic constraints, hormones, trauma, lifestyle, etc.) we must balance our 3 types of constitutions, or doshas: Vata (ether & air), Pitta (fire & water), and Kapha (earth & water). This is done through the use of food, medicine (herbs), yoga asanas, breath work, color therapy, aromatherapy, mantra, sound, and by creating a daily ritual.  

For Oily Hair
Prevents overactive oil production. Made with organic bhringraj, organic sunflower oil, and rosemary oil. 30 ml.

we are the alchemy of Australia’s bountiful nature & eco lifestyle, with a dash of rich Mexican colour & vibrant culture.

Everyone who meets Ere agrees there is something special about her — perhaps it is the mystical influence of her Latin heritage. A childhood spent in Mexico with a traditional medicine man grandfather and a mother’s flair for home remedies & beauty recipes, made Ere curious about nature and healing. She obtained a bachelor in nutrition and certification in naturopathy, Bach flowers and acupuncture. Ere emigrated to Australia with her rich cultural heritage and dreamed of her own natural beauty line. In 2002, her dream was realised and Ere Perez Natural Cosmetics was born in Bondi Beach, Sydney. For Ere, natural beauty is about how you live your life, how you connect with the world and how you nourish your body — inside and out.

probiotics + murumuru ultra calming toner $32.00



Hi, we're glowoasis!
We’re a global skincare brand that actually cares about your skin, and it shows. With us, you’ll find no superficial B.S. (beauty secrets, that is), empty promises, or mirages. Only skincare that supports your skin’s health from the inside out for a natural-born glow that lasts.

But what makes us different from the rest? It’s simple: our signature vegan probiotics! Similar to how probiotics benefit gut health by replacing bad bacteria with the good, we knew that vegan probiotics would have this same positive effect on our skin. That’s when it all started with our secret ingredient: nutrient-rich napa cabbage from the highest mountains in Korea.

Our probiotics + murumuru ultra calming toner gently calms your skin for a noticeably balanced complexion. Enriched with rosemary leaf water and oil, our face toner improves both tone and texture, while also minimizing fine lines and fading dark spots. Your skin is left looking more youthful and luminous with each and every use.


VOLOOM CLASSIC (1.5") $139.99



I invented VOLOOM because my hair was flat and lifeless, especially as I got older, and there seemed to be nothing I could do about it. And I tried everything – tools, sprays, mousses, and every kind of tool imaginable. Nothing worked.

Friends of mine, even the younger ones, complained of the same problem. Even those with thick hair found that it could lie flat because of its weight. It made us feel frumpy, unattractive, and even less powerful than we felt when our hair was full and fabulous. It turns out, the term “bad hair day” is really code for “flat hair day” and it’s a major confidence killer for women.

So I decided to tackle the problem by inventing the first Hair Volumizing Iron. The big “aha moment” in designing VOLOOM was realizing that I had to create structure in the under-layers of the hair in order to lift the top layers up and away from the scalp. That structure needed to be strong without showing a distinct pattern in the hair.

If you want big, gorgeous volume for your longer, heavier hair, VOLOOM Classic is the one! VOLOOM Classic is the heavy lifter of our irons at 1 ½ inches wide. It also features the largest volumizing platforms on our patented checkerboard plates.

LESS DAMAGE TO YOUR HAIR
Volume that lasts for days
Shampoo, heat style and color your hair less often with VOLOOM.
Easily go extra days between shampoos because your hair is never flat.
That’s why, over time, your hair should actually get healthier with VOLOOM.


Tropical CBD Body Butter $39.99



At Saha, this question guides everything we say and do as a company and after much contemplation and reflection, we’ve distilled our collective aspirations into 10 succinct but shared answers.

Using our platform and resources to uplift and amplify others in the self-care community for the benefit of our community and beyond. We receive to give, always.
Using our platform and resources to protect and defend the most vulnerable of us through meaningful donations to charities, we deem to be beyond reproach.

Best seller bundle with Pod $50.00



YouBodyCare™ was founded on the idea that body wash could be more than what’s inside the bottle. That it could leave the smallest footprint on our waters by using powder-filled packets that break down, instead of plastic that pollutes. And it could be fun to wash with, feel like nothing else out there, and always smell amazing.

Our body care shower cleansing products use the powerful pod and powder method to deliver a cleansing experience unlike any other. At the beginning of the week, mix 3 packs of concentrate in the YouBodyPod™. Press the button to dispense, and enjoy your experience!

Luxurious, waterless, sustainable body wash. Save water, save the planet, smell good, feel good.
