Sunday's Dress


This is the dress I had on Sunday while at the aquarium and on Instagram Live. You all asked for the information, its $22.99 and no shipping if you have prime and will arrive fast ( its from Amazon)!
I'm attaching the direct link to the dress to help anyone who asked and is interested, the link is not an affiliate link. It does absolutely nothing for me, it is strictly to help you find the same dress I had on.
I doubled checked my order, I purchased in Dark Grey and I ordered an xl, and absolutely should have gotten a large. Its roomy! 


To find this dress ( the exact one I have) click HERE

Hope this helps everyone who asked and any one else interested. Its a great look for $22.99 and not clingy, not thin ( its summer weight but you can't see through), comes in a few other colors, has POCKETS ( why do I love a dress with pockets so much), and is just an easy effortless look. 

Have a great week.

Blend Smart Rotating Makeup Brush


You all may have seen me over the past few weeks on Instagram live applying my foundation and powder using the Blend Smart rotating makeup brush. Its battery operated ( battery comes with ), lightweight, and the brush pops out. Why does the brush pop out, because HELLLLLLLLLLLLLLO you can change out brushes for different applications ( foundation, powder, defining/contour). 
I've used the Blend Smart system with the foundation brush with medium coverage foundation and full coverage foundation (foundations used with Blend Smart: It Cosmetics CC+ cream, Estee Lauder Double Wear maximum coverage, and Milani Conceal and Perfect 2-in-1 Foundation ). I had fabulous result with all foundations using the Blend Smart system with the foundation brush attachment.   I also apply setting powder over my foundation using the Blend Smart powder brush and again had great results. I've tried loose (Besame loose powder) and press powders (Rimmel Stay Matte Powder and Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder) and all had great results. When I say I had great results, I had several ladies (strangers) stop me in public on the days I used the Blend Smart brush and ask what foundation I was using. To which I told them the foundation followed by "its not just the foundation, its the foundation applied with the Blend Smart Brush."

When you purchase the BlendSmart 2 Starter Set it includes the applicator ( basically the brush handle), long lasting battery, and a universal brush head.  Additional brush heads are available for purchase depending on your needs and personal preference. Don't forget the travel case it holds the starter set and additional brush heads ($12.50)

Let me finish by saying I was VERY skeptical of the spinning brush idea and will it really make a difference, I didn't think it would. I WAS WRONG. 
I am into the results FOR SURE, but a few things to know:
This is a lightweight motorized spinning brush, it takes a few times to get into the groove of it. You'll absolutely be able to use it and get great results the first time, my point is its a new method of application and with that comes a change of mind set. I am so glad I gave it go and stuck with it.  It creates a beautiful finish, feels SO NICE and doesn't give you cake face. 

Now the BONUS of this post, my Blend Smart was gifted to me by Blend Smart and they in returned asked for nothing. I was not asked to share on Instagram or my Blog, they asked for nothing. Had I not liked it I wouldn't have shared here. With that being said I meet with the creators of Blend Smart and they gave me a NICE COUPON CODE to share with you all. 

The COUPON CODE is for 25% on the Blend Smart site HERE 
COUPON CODE: TIKAA25

The coupon code is for you all it does NOTHING for me, I receive no payment or percentage by you all using the coupon code nor did Blend Smart pay me.

I made these adult juice pouches this morning ( made ahead of time, we didn't drink them this morning) for the lake and they were a big hit and we will be making them again,and again. Not only are they cute, but they are super convenient and yummy. To find the pouches click HERE  ( this is NOT an affiliate link).


 
What was in the pouches:
I made the above water mixer - HEB brand Passion Fruit ( this is also available in 2 quart mix), if you don't have HEB grocery store close to you I would bet any favorite mixer would work. I added a small bit of fresh squeezed lime and then topped off with Malibu Rum ( how much is up to you). To make it look more festive and fun I threw in sliced oranges, strawberries and limes. Then put all pouches in freezer, took out when ready to enjoy.   
You can use these for any favorite drink recipe ( with or without alcohol). Next we are making margaritas. 
Happy Summer.
