SoCozy’s NEW Sensitive Hair Care Products for Kids

Look what we found at Target a few weeks ago!!! Let me tell you why I was so excited about these products. -)

SoCozy Hair Products

My daughter’s hair has always been on the dry side. As she was growing up, and her hair was getting longer, we learned that it needed some extra conditioning. And so we are always on the lookout for the hair products that are specifically made for dry hair and sensitive scalp. That’s why I was so excited to see SoCozy brand, the salon-quality hair care products developed for kids, at Target. Their new HUSH collection by SoCozy is designed to treat dry hair for children with sensitive skin. It includes HUSH Sensitive Scalp Serum, Sensitive Foam, Sensitive 2in1, and Sensitive Detangler.

Here is what my daughter’s hair looks like very morning after she brushes it. Obviously, it needs some conditioning. So, let’d start testing the HUSH collection, and see if it does what it promises.

First, we used the Sensitive Scalp Serum. It’s a non-greasy, leave-in formula that helps calm an irritated scalp, while reducing dry flakes.

The best way to use it is to part her hair in small sections, apply directly to scalp and massage gently.

Then I sprayed it with the detangler. I am very impressed how well conditioned, smooth and soft her hair was. It was very easy to brush through.

I could definitely see the benefits of using it every morning. It will get the tangles out with no problem. See the result below.

Next, we washed her hair with the shampoo+conditioner.

The brush on the tube was a nice feature for applying shampoo on her hair.

The product foamed very nicely as we worked it through her hair.

However, when my daughter rinsed it out, it didn’t just feel dry…it looked dry. As you see on the photo, her hair still needed some conditioning.

IMG_7811fM

To be fair, I have to mention again that my daughter’s scalp and her hair always needed extra conditioning. For whatever reason, the product made little difference for her hair.

To fix the problem, we immediately sprayed the detangler on it, and again it worked its magic. Her hair became soft and easy to brush.

To make her hair looking fuller and to add more volume, I used Sensitive Styling Foam.

IMG_7769-4fM          IMG_7833fM

I let it dry naturally, and really loved the end result. Judge for yourself!

IMG_7860fM

To summarize my review, I will definitely be buying SoCozy detangler, foam, and scalp serum in the future. All these products work very well with dry hair. Each one of them contributed to my daughter’s hair looking softer, shinier, and healthier. I strongly recommend all three of these products.

However, I can’t say the same about the shampoo+conditioner, as it didn’t work for my daughter’s hair. It may work well with your kid’s hair, but that’s just my experience. And, keep in mind, her hair is really dry.

Wood Watch by Jord

Today I am excited to share with you my honest opinion about the Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Emerald Jord Watch!

Jord is a unique wood watch brand run by artists, designers, marketers, and minders. They are focused on creating timepieces that are modeled after a modern lifestyle. I love how this watch perfectly combines a blended earth inspiration and an elegant design in one!Frankie Dark Sandalwood & Emerald

Before I talk about the watch, I want to say that the wooden box the watch came in is absolutely stunning. The attention to details is impressive: JORD name and logo engraved on the box, magnetic top, and a little drawer in the front. This multi-functional wooden box is something special. However, you can make it even more special!

Here is how: “Engrave your cedar watch box with anything you want! Write a special note to the recipient, upload your logo/monogram, or provide a handwritten message to be engraved directly on the side of the box!”

Isn’t that thoughtful?!

The watch is beautiful. The vibrant emerald green face and the sandalwood hue create a refined and organic palette that is very pleasing to the eye. I can see me wearing many looks with earth tones, brown, green, gray colors, and even leopard print that would be complemented by the watch.

Some other features worth mentioning are sapphire crystal glass and a deployment buckle with push buttons. It’s easy to clasp around your wrist, and it feels secure. The watch is super light, smooth, and feels very comfortable when wearing. The natural dark sandalwood is hand finished and pretreated with tung oils, and it looks and feels amazing.

Jord cares for its customers, and has a little something extra available with this watch! A personalized message can be engraved on the backplate of the watch. Doesn’t that sounds like a great gift idea?!

Definitely recommending the watch to everyone as a gift for yourself or a gift for someone you love! ( Click here to view men’s shop or women’s shop)

In conclusion, I really appreciate how skillfully Jord combined uniqness and down to earth, simplicity and sophistication in one beautiful timepiece.

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.

PHOTO3PHOTO4

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.

PHOTO5

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.

PHOTO7

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

PHOTO8

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!

Firmoo Eyeglasses Review

 

 

Recently I was contacted by Firmoo optical store to review their product. My order came in a matter of days, which was impressive.

I loved the case the glasses came in, the accessories it included, and more importantly I was very happy with the glasses.

The multicolor frame and the shape are very stylish and go with many different outfits. They are lightweight and comfortable to wear.

Everyone who has seen these frames on me, think they are beautiful. My mother-in-law wants to order the exact same frame for distance and close-up. She has beautiful blue eyes, and the blue in the frames really complements them.

Overall, and it is my very honest opinion, the style of the glasses is suitable for any age. Whether you need prescription or not, these glasses are very fashionable and fun to wear!

Outfit with Baseball Hat

Today I created a stylish outfit layout with a baseball hat from Fanatics.com. They have many different colors to choose from, but I decided to go with a black one. I felt like black color will help me create the classy and dressy look I was going for.

I love experimenting with different styles, but what I enjoy the most is mixing and matching things that don’t really go with each other. Then it’s fun trying to figure out which colors or accessories I need to add to make the outfit successful.

Black heels, double breasted trench and a white shirt scream elegance and sophistication, while low rise cropped jeans with ripped knees and a baseball hat are a complete opposite in the outfit. The black color and the mix of accessories is what balances the outfit. It’s stylish! It’s fun!

Baseball hat from Fanatics.comDouble Breasted Cotton Trench and Leather strap watch are from Nordstrom, Poplin shirt and Jeans are both from Zara,  Black heels by Prada, Black Tote by Rebecca Minkoff, and Necklace is from ALDO.

Reflecting My Style with Modani

Today I want to introduce you to Modani. It’s a store with a wide range of furniture and accessories in a contemporary style. Their modern furniture stores are located all over the United States.

I was inspired to create a mood board for a living room that would reflect my style. I created two boards, and had no idea it would be so much fun!

Creating a board was very similar to putting an outfit together. I started with the main piece – furniture (sofa in this case), then went with a secondary color and chose a rug. Lastly, I added accessories to the room to complete the interior.

Accessories may not seem as an important part of a design, but they do play a very significant part in any interior. They can help balancing out the colors, add harmony to the color palette in the room, and they can easily create an interest by adding a pop of a complementary or, even more interesting, unexpected color in design.


Paul Fredrick Summer Collection 2014

Let’s talk about men’s fashion…

Paul Fredrick is a great company that introduces men to a classic and versatile style. It’s a smart style for men. The company was founded 25 years ago. They originally specialized in dress shirts, but their collection has grown exponentially. Paul Fredrick designs, manufactures and directly distributes every item in their collection. No wholesalers. No store fronts. Just great style at everyday prices.

Even though Paul Fredrick Fall 2014 Collection is out, I would like to talk about their Summer Collection for now. It features variety of formal dress shirts, patterned ties and suits for men. Incorporating bold prints in their ties to complement the range of bright colors available in their range of shirts, the collection makes a bold statement with its block colors and stripes.

Summer season is a Wedding season, and if you are invited to a wedding and don’t know where to start, you will find some helpful tips in this article on how to dress up well for the wedding, and Paul Fredrick Summer collection will help me with that. It has great styles to choose from, so let’s take a closer look at it.

The collection features trendy pastel colors. Light pink, blue, and green color dress shirt give the look a soft touch, while suits of pastel tones will create a refreshing look for summer.

The suits are made of 100% cotton seersucker, which will keep you comfortable even out in the sun, and set off with the bold designs and prints of their signature ties, make an impressive statement. This type of suit can be worn to a casual wedding or a wedding at a daytime.

Paul Fredrick summer collection has a wide selection of ties. Wear a bold, dotted, striped or floral tie to create a confident look. Remember to emphasize one main color in the look, and choose the other ones to compliment the main one.

I would recommend wearing darker suits like black or gray for a wedding in the evening. A dressy shirt with turned–down collar will look classy and elegant. Add an attractive tie bright and bold for stylish and modern look. Add a lighter color tie for a softer look.

Style is simplicity. Don’t mix large patterns or your outfit will look too busy and clattered.  If you want a more textured look, wear smaller scale patterns. They are more forgiving when pairing with other patterns.

Visit Paul Fredrick website and see all the different styles and colors they offer.

Michael Kors Fall-Winter 2013-2014

As I was looking for some inspiration for my blog, I came across this Fall-Winter 2013-2014 collection from Michael Kors. The collection is filled with elegance, refinement, and simplicity.  It includes limited use of accessories, instead the main accent falls on colors, assertive lines and charisma. Two-tone outfits, camouflage pattern, black leather and aggressive zippers add drama and character to the collection. Check it out!
