Dezzal

If you're a gal who loves to get dressed up, look stunning and turn heads, than check out Dezzal. This online fashion boutique is high-end with many beautiful choices to pick from.

If you join now, you will get 20% off your order!

I needed a dress for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. There was to be a ceremony in church during mass before the actual reception. I needed the perfect dress. After hours of looking, and having to seriously narrow down my choices, I found it.

High Waisted Short Sleeve Lace Spliced Dress

That is me in the dress, right before we attended the church mass in the morning. I love this dress. While it is a little heavy for a summer day, it is so beautiful and beautifully made. Lace all around, with this pleating in front, made it an elegant number. Perfect for the event that I was attending. I actually heard ladies in church saying how beautiful my dress was. Made me feel like a million bucks! 

I can't recommend this place enough! The dress was so easy and secure to order. It got here in record timing, and on regular parcel at that. Plus it was stunning and well crafted. Mixed with the sizing being right, you really can't go wrong! 

Be sure to check out Dezzal on Facebook and on Twitter @dezzal.

#VichyWorksForMe

Vichy Skin Care

Vichy Laboratoires has developed a line of skin care, LiftActiv, aimed at firming up skin and fighting wrinkles around the clock. You can purchase it online, which it's on sale currently, or visit your local Vichy dealer at a pharmacy or department store near you.

Vichy LiftActiv Serum 10 Supreme

(ARV: $57)
You apply this product first, after washing your face. It smells like citrus, and though it is clear, applies like a gel almost. You use a small amount, and spread it evenly over your face. This product is supposed to help lift your skin, and reduce visible lines and wrinkles. I find, after 4 weeks, that it is slowly reducing the lines on my forehead. 


Vichy Liftactiv Supreme Day Cream

(ARV; $49.95)
You apply the day cream after the serum. It has an SPF in it to protect against the sun, as well as the benefits of firming, lifting and reducing lines. I really like the scent of the cream too. Soft and subtle. I like that the cream is not greasy and spreads evenly with a little amount. My skin feels much softer as well.


Vichy LiftActiv Supreme Night Cream


(ARV; $49.95)
So as you may have noticed, This product a little expensive. I will say this though, it may be worth it. You only need a little amount each time you use it. It seems to be a slower process, but one that actually works to reduce fine lines, wrinkles and firms your skin in problematic areas. The scent is an added nice touch.



While it is still very subtle, I do notice a change in the lines on my forehead. I am sure with continued use, that this product will be beneficial to my skin. I definitely give this one a recommendation!
