DermaE Skincare Products Review!

Unlike my previous posts, this one will be different:

  • it’s my first time reviewing a skincare product,
  • I have never posted a photo of me that was make-up free. -)

So, get ready to read this different and exciting post!

I love wearing makeup. It provides me with confidence that even if I have some blemishes and wrinkles on my face, my foundation does a great job hiding them. Sounds good, but that’s not always the case. So I thought instead of hiding the problem, let’s solve it. That’s why I decided to give DermaE skincare products a try.

( It’s a sponsored post, but the opinion is mine and very honest. )

DermaE mask

Why DermaE? The answer is simple! They have high ethical standards and never compromise on skin care health and safety. Their products are eco-friendly, natural and organic. They care about your skin as much as they care about our environment.

100% vegan, cruelty-free formulas do not
contain parabens, sodium lauryl sulfates,
petrolatum, mineral oil, artificial colors, gluten,
soy or GMOs. Now that’s honest-to-goodness
skin care.

In addition to that, the company supports green business, and participates in recycling programs. I wish more companies would have the same mindset as DermaE!

First I tried their Purifying 2-in-1 Charcoal Mask.

When applied, it has an interesting dark cobalt-blue color, which lightens as it dries. My face felt cool, minty, and my skin began to feel tight.

My kids never seen me in a mask before, and so they kept taking videos and photos of me looking like a blueman. -) I tried not to laugh, to keep the mask from cracking.

In 5 min, it was all dry. I moistened my fingertips, and massage gently around my nose, chin and forehead. Rinsed thoroughly with a damp cloth. The results were great! My face looked lighter, and my skin felt very soft. The mask was a success!

The second product I tried was Purifying Daily Detox Scrub.

I applied this product on my wet face and gently scrubbed it in a circular motion.

Let it sit for 1 min and rinse thoroughly with water. My skin felt fresh and very clean.

I definitely recommend both of these products. They do their job well!

DermaE is a much needed gift for yourself! Your skin will have a healthier, softer and smoother appearance.

Give it to yourself, you deserve it!

Black and White Never Gets Old!

Black and white color combination is one of my favorite in an outfit. To keep it from being boring or too busy, I like to add a touch of silver or gold accessories.

My Ideal Valentine’s Day Outfit!

So, we got a gift idea for Valentine’s Day in my previous post, and today is time to get an idea of what to wear that day to look and feel absolutely fabulous. I put together my ideal outfit to go to a fancy restaurant for dinner with my husband.

Tan color is my favorite at the moment, as it’s simple and eye-catching at the same time. A burgundy color clutch and shoes were added to the look to spice it up and bring it to life. -)

Smokey eyes, heavy mascara, and maybe even fake eyelashes (don’t do it usually, but that day is special) is a must-have for my makeup, especially if it’s evening.

The outfit looks great, but to make it perfect, I’d like to add a simple and absolutely beautiful gold necklace. There is a great store AUrate New York with an amazing selection of contemporary yet timeless real gold jewelry made right in New York City. I absolutely love the style of every piece they offer, and I’d love to add one to my ideal look. Below are the two that I really like. Any one of their gold necklaces would go perfectly with my Valentine’s Day outfit.

Wear it, own it!

Valentine’s Day Gift Idea!

As you know, I mainly post my favorite styles and outfit combinations to express the “creative side of me.” However, I wanted to change pace a little bit and focus on my husband this time around! With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, I was trying to think of some different gifts that would be perfect for him. His wardrobe needs a little help and that’s when I came across Tommy John

They’ve really gone all out in terms of putting the guy first and that’s just what I’m looking to do this Valentine’s Day. I love how they’ve put a lot of care into the fit and fabrics they use. I was reading some of the reviews and it sounds like guys feel the same. I definitely think my husband will appreciate the thought, and I’m positive he’ll enjoy the added comfort too. No more bunching or riding up that’s for sure!

I’m currently considering their underwear and undershirts. I really think hell enjoy them!

What gift ideas are all of you thinking of for this Valentine’s Day?

The Prettiest Dress to Wear for Holidays

So, this was my first time renting a dress for a party, and definitely not the last one! -)

It was my husband’s idea! Based on our previous experience, I buy a beautiful evening dress for a party, and wear in once or twice, well, three times the most…and then it just takes space in my closet. On one hand, I don’t want to get rid of it because it’s still new, on the other hand, I don’t want to wear it, as everyone saw me in it. I am funny like that! -)

I got this beautiful dress at Rent the Runway. Their customer service, fast shipping, and the dress itself, all of it was just wonderful! That beautiful evening, I wore an amazing Karma Drama gown for $1,595 dress to the party, and paid only $85 for 4 days! What a bargain!

As the holidays come, I definitely would recommend this place to you.

If you follow me on Instagram (@olyacreative), I bet you were one of the first ones who got to see me in that dress that same evening. -)

Marine Style Outfit

Stripes have been in fashion for a long time, and I don’t want this trend to fade away. This beautiful print is as classical as polka dots and hounds tooth prints.

The white and blue striped top from ZARA was the inspiration for the marine-style outfit. The pop of yellow color makes the look more fun and catchy.

Wearing today: Top – ZARA, Jeans – ZARA, Sandals – Steve Madden, Handbag – French Connection Fiona.

Tulip-Back Jacket with Pencil Skirt

The tupil-back jacket I am wearing today is one of my favorite garments at the moment. In fact, I bought two same jackets, but in different colors (black and pale pink).

Today I paired my black one with a tan leather pencil skirt and the high heels. The dressy black textured clutch and the oversized necklace added even more texture to the look and made it successful and fun.

Shorts as Inspiration

The multicolored shorts from H&M were my inspiration for the outfit. The rest of the outfit, the shirt, the shoes and the bag had a similar brown shade which helped me in pulling the look together. The gold details completed the look. -)
