Lucie Pětová

Love Account Manager

Helping people has always been Lucie’s greatest passion. Right after her university studies she re-qualified to a cosmetics & wellness specialist at Make-Up Institute Prague but later realised that she was more interested in inner than in outer beauty. She started to help people find balance and inner peace through teaching yoga which has been her biggest passion. She is currently taking the Teachers Training with her Indian guru and conducting yoga sessions for both private clients of Find L’Amour as well as for the participants of Find L’Amour Happiness Weekends. Lucie has also worked in cosmetics sales, hostessing and modelling in the past and she was involved in hotel event management. She has worked all over the world including Iceland, Greece, US (Florida) and Bali. She believes charisma is a combination of person’s outer and inner beauty. Lucie loves spending her free time travelling, meditating, learning new things and organising horse riding camps. In Find L’Amour Lucie helps to reveal even the most hidden trails in clients’ character, their emotional patters according to which they make important life choices including the choice of their partners, and she also helps to identify and choose the right clients for Find L’Amour as well as to find their right matches. Lucie is very spontaneous, communicative, intuitive and empathetic. Clients find the journey to love with her joyful and exciting. Lucie is happy when the client changes his status from “single” to “in a relationship”, at the same time she emphasizes the importance of being happy no matter the outside circumstances.

Petra Ticha

Fashion Stylist

Petra is a Slovak globetrotter who started her career as a Recruiter and Business Consultant and later moved to the field of fashion and beauty. Petra lived and worked in London, Prague, Dubai and Budapest and eventually settled down in Bratislava where she now works as a full-time fashion stylist & image consultant. Styling has been Petra’s passion for over 10 years, having worked as a Personal Stylist for celebrities as well as general public. She took a certified styling course at the prestigious ”Skola stylu” in Prague as well as many international online styling courses. She is the founder of the clothing swap in Zilina, a type of swapmeet wherein participants exchange their valued but no longer used clothing for clothing they will use. Clothing swaps are considered not only a good way to refill one’s wardrobe, but also are considered an act of environmentalism.

Petra regularly speaks about the power of personal style, image and fashion at workshops and conferences and is a regular contributor to a variety of fashion magazines.

At your face-to-face entry consultation with Petra you will cover a variety of topics depending on your personal preference, for example the following ones:

– Do you know how to dress to best describe your character type and your personality?
– Does your wardrobe reflect the needs of your lifestyle?
– Do you know what belongs to basic pieces of timeless wardrobe and how to create universal outfits?
– How to buy strategically and how to know about the latest trends – what is worth investing in and what is not?
• Do you know what to do with clothes that don’t make you happy anymore and you don’t wear it, or vice versa, where to find new pieces for your wardrobe completely free of charge?

Petra’s image and styling guidance will help you find your identity through the clothes and accessories you wear. She will create a timeless wardrobe that fits your personality, taste and the energy that shines from you. You will start building a wardrobe that supplies you in line with the needs of your lifestyle and your budget – because having certain vibe and looking cool or stylish is not about money or your figure.

Petra also offers group fashion classes where the participants have a unique opportunity to learn about different aspects of the world of fashion and style, and also relax in a pleasant timeless environment, where trust, openness and feeling good about who yourself are the keys to finding harmony, peace and joy which will eventually attract your significant other.
