Review about the JouwBox 11 - Rosewater Spray and Mild Hand & Body Wash

Hi There..... Do you like Natural Products? Would you like me to tell you more about the Rosewater Spray and the Mild Hand Wash from my JouwBox filled with natural products?

First things first though, I wish you all New Year with lots more freedom to do what you love. "Each year’s regrets are envelopes in which messages of hope are found for the New Year."- John R. Dallas Jr. ๐Ÿ˜˜

Did you have fun on New Year’s Eve? I sure hope you all did. Even it was in a smaller circle for most of us. No fireworks, no parties, home before midnight. Even Cinderella was allowed more. ๐Ÿ˜

I have a lot of fond New Year’s Eve memories, with the entire family on my dad’s side, when I was a young girl. I remember playing outside with our nieces and nephews in between meals. Often it had snowed or frozen. We didn’t mind the cold. We would have snow fights, make snowmen, or slide on the ice. ๐Ÿ˜

There would be gifts for everyone, and lots of drinking and laughter. My aunt would always dress up and put on a crazy show. She was a born entertainer and there never was a dull moment. ๐Ÿ˜€

At midnight everyone would sit around the table, and she would always sing the same song. It wasn’t a real song, but the words were French. It sounded like the song of a young girl that hadn’t learned the language yet. The words were something like this "C’est la tu passรฉ de raderie dera, C’est la tu passรฉ, Ceรงi sont tous trompรฉe." ๐Ÿ˜„

She would always start with a napkin in her left hand and pass it on to her right hand. Then she passed it to the person next to her. He or she then had to pass it on again until she stopped singing. The one holding the napkin would have to give a gift to someone. I know, my family is a bit crazy and I bet that rubbed off a bit on me too. No worries though, it doesn't hurt a bit. ๐Ÿ˜‰

How about I stop babbling and tell you more about this Bulgarian Organic Rosewater spray from Alteya Organics? What does their website say about this Rosewater? See, I can be serious if I want to. ๐Ÿ˜„

It is bottled in the heart of the Valley of Roses in Bulgaria. Alteya’s certified organic Bulgarian Rose Water is the world’s most exquisite 100% pure, natural, organic flower water. The beautiful fragrance, special qualities, and plants’ synergy of this organic rose water are well known all over the world.

100% organically grown and ethically harvested from the family rose farm in the heart of the Bulgarian Rose Valley.

The Rosewater Spray is Recommended for all skin and hair types

What's not to like about this very refreshing natural product. I sprayed it on a cotton pad and gently rubbed it into my face. It was very refreshing and has a wonderful scent. But you can spray it anywhere on your body, even on your hair. I am definitely going to try it out next time I have been in the sun too long. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

The other product I planned to tell you more about today is the Hand & Body wash from Piroche Cosmetiques. What does their website tell us about this Hand Wash?

It's a bottle with natural mild hand soap and shower gel all in one. This cleansing gel is revitalizing and refreshing because of the mint. The sage in this hand wash has an antioxidant effect and the addition of thyme makes this hand & body wash antiseptic and wonderfully fragrant.
The hand soap is gentle on the skin and also suitable for children.

You can use it throughout the day to wash your hands (also easy to carry in your purse, so you don't have to use synthetic hand soap). It can also serve as a shower gel for the entire family. Apply the product to damp skin, massage, and rinse.

The essential oil of thyme, sage, and mint are the active ingredients of this hand wash.

If I try out new products, the first thing I usually do is dive my nose into them. This hand soap has such a wonderful fragrance as if you are in a sauna. You can really pick up that thyme and mint scent. ๐Ÿ˜

I think it's perfect to take with you on your holiday because of the handy size of the bottle. What could be better than a refreshing shower after a hot sunny day? And your skin feels nice and soft afterward. ๐Ÿ˜˜

Interview with Fashion Designer Desireรฉ Marie Singletary

Hi There..... Have you always looked up to High-End Fashion Designers?

I couldn't afford their clothing when I was a young girl but have always been a fan of the Dolce & Gabbana fashion designers Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. No, not of them personally. I have never met them, but I'm a fan of their clothing. ๐Ÿ˜

Not that I could ever dream of asking them for an interview on my blog. Oh my, that is something I can only dream of. They make the most amazing garments. I really love how colorful their clothing is. Ah, too many people hide away behind black and grey. The world needs more color, if you ask me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

This is only my second fashion designer interview, but who knows the designers I feature may get famous one day too. Everyone has to start somewhere, and what better way than being the next star on my blog? ๐Ÿ˜

The designer I am featuring today is Desireรฉ Marie Singletary. She is the 30-year-old owner and Designer for Desireรฉ Marie Design

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

Bridal design, bespoke pieces

Is fashion important to you? Why? 

Yes, fashion helped me become more confident, and it is fun! I want to bring this experience to every bride/client I work with. 

What are your successes and how did you achieve them?

I felt pretty successful after completing a bride's custom gown and 5 custom vests for her groomsmen
I achieved this by managing my time and working closely with my clients. I also received Austin’s Best In Style from Austin Wedding Day Style Magazine in 2017 and 2018. 
I did this by working with the magazine and getting published several times within those years. 

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

No, I did not grow up rich, so I and my mom would always argue about brand names, and I eventually learned that fashion is more about expressing yourself, not advertising a brand you love. 
So I began shopping at the thrift stores with her for all my clothing, and eventually was altering the pieces, and this led to taking fashion classes and the start of my fashion journey. 

Describe your personal style of clothing?

Eclectic. I love all eras of fashion, and I enjoy experimenting with new trends and old ones. At the moment, I am into boho and 70s trends. 

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

I would define my personal style as fashionable and preppy. I say fashionable because I am mainly influenced by fashion influencers or even movies. Preppy because my looks are usually bright, fun, and feminine. 

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

Yes, I am a stylist as well for Stitch Fix, so I am sending clothing and accessories to people every day.

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

I believe the best trends at the moment are colorful wedding dresses and embroidery on wedding dresses.

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

Underwear thongs showing or underwear thongs being part of a dress.

What kind of fashion advice would you give us?

Just to have fun! Stop worrying about what people will think and think about how fashion makes you feel! 

Who is your style icon and why?

Liz Cherkasova from Late Afternoon style blog. I have been following her for 10 years! Back when fashion blogs first came out! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

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

I work with brides to create their dream dress! We work one-on-one sketching, picking out fabrics, and designing your one-of-a-kind look. I also love to work with brides who already have their gown and we can alter it to fit you perfectly or add custom changes. 

Wow, aren't those designs amazing? If you are thinking of getting married soon, be sure to check out their website.

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

Where to find a gorgeous luxury fashion mask - Vanity Couture Designer Face Masks

Hi There..... Do you like to wear masks? Would you rather wear a luxury fashion mask or a clinical one?

Not that I like it that much, but it seems like we will still have to wear a face mask for a while. If we have to, then at least I would rather have designer face masks. How about you? ๐Ÿ˜Š

I was wondering, have you ever been to a masked ball?

I have, but it is such a long time ago. I don’t think I told you before, but I took dancing classes from the age of 18 to 22. ๐Ÿ’ƒ

I learned classic ballroom dances like the cha-cha, tango, jive, samba, quickstep, rumba, and lots more. Oh, you would have liked to dance with me because I had some moves in me. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

We would have lessons twice a week. On Saturday, the dance school held dance evening for couples and on Sunday dance evening for the younger people mixed with disco, French cancan, Cowboy dance, La Bamba and so on. ๐Ÿ’ƒ

I loved those Sunday evenings, not just for the dancing, but there were quite a few cute guys on that dancing floor too. I may have been shy, but I got invited to dance more than once. Ah yes, that was way before my wrinkles showed. ๐Ÿ˜

The school also organized special evenings from time to time, like a New Year’s eve ball or a masked ball. I didn’t have that much pocket money, so I had to get creative. One time, I remember I made the costume myself from scratch. ๐Ÿ˜Š

I used a black T-shirt with a V-neck and cut off the bottom. I had bought myself some fairly cheap fabric and made a layered skirt out of it. I can still see the fabric in my mind. It was blue with large black dots. Then I attached the black T-shirt to the skirt and that would be my flamenco dress. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

After I had finished that, I also made 2 large hoop earrings and a ribbon for my hair. In the shop, I bought myself a black spray to make my hair totally black. I put on some blue eyeshadow and borrowed a red lipstick from my mom to make that last touch. I was going to make an impression, if not on the dancefloor, I would in the La Bamba kissing the guys with my red lipstick. ๐Ÿ˜

Ok, enough about me. Let's talk some more about that gorgeous luxury fashion mask I was talking about. Or should I say masks? Vanity Couture sent me these 3 beautiful designer face masks in exchange for my honest review. ๐Ÿ˜

They make this gorgeous sparkly mask from glitter knit fabric. It has 3 layers and there is a special pocket for the filter you get with the mask. What I find especially handy are the ear loops with which you can make it fit perfectly, and they are nice and soft. I paired it with a red blouse to get a warm look. ๐Ÿ˜„

Both the golden and this silver sparkly glitter face mask have a black organic lining to avoid make-up stains. Depending on how the light falls in this mask gets a blue or pink shine on it. I just love that and I can imagine it working great under the black lights of a discotheque. Or maybe this year, in a smaller circle, under the lights of the Christmas tree. ๐ŸŽ„

They embellished this amazing mask with Swarovski crystal rhinestones. The premium high thread-count cotton inner lining makes it perfectly breathable. They made ribbons of satin on this mask.
All 3 masks cover the nose and chin perfectly, as it should, and they feel really comfortable. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Vanity Couture Unfortunately got hit hard by the pandemic. It plummeted their custom orders and really diminished sales, so they were forced to pivot. Not only did they create The Peoples Mask Corp, supplying civilians with face masks since April, but they also ventured into clothing. ๐Ÿ˜Š

They just launched their Embellished velvet luxury loungewear collection and got a lot of responses already. Seeing as how staying home, working from home, and living in comfortable attire has become the new norm they wanted to still give women the opportunity to feel chic and glam without sacrificing the desire to be cozy. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Let me show you a few examples of this luxury loungewear.

They also have the most amazing swimwear. You really must, yes must, check out this video they published on their YouTube Channel. ๐Ÿ˜ฒ

Those are the most amazing bathing suits I have ever seen. ๐Ÿ˜
