Bluetooth Speakers, Brush and Get Charged

I have shared on Instagram and Instagram live my little yellow (below) Bluetooth speaker that I found for about $9.00 ( a little less actually). I left my pricey Bluetooth behind while traveling ( was able to get it back) and decided to look for a much cheaper option. WHY, well for a couple of reasons: I have forgot my pricey speaker before because I got in a rush ( out of sight out of mind). A $9.00  Bluetooth speaker falling in the lake or ocean isn't bringing tears to my eyes. If it breaks while traveling, again I'm not out much. I found this one in yellow ( below) and purchased it first ( the orange one is exact same brand as yellow, only orange) and LOVE IT! This little ( size of an iphone 6plus, maybe a bit smaller) bluetooth speaker is powerful ( at least for my mature ears...my children are impressed with it too). It is super light weight ( feels like it weights nothing) and takes a pretty standard charger ( comes with the cord to charge, you need the plug part) and it seems like it stays charged a while.  Yes I bought in orange, I wanted to leave one at the lake and have one for travel, but I've been using the orange one all over the house ( when I am listening to youtube on my laptop or music in my workroom). 

I shared this one on Instagram Live one night while at the lake,

You may or may not have been watching when we chatted about hairbrushes on Instagram Live one morning. I have another brush that is pricey and that one doesn't leave the house, I found this one a few years ago to use for travel, etc...and now I like it much better than the pricey version of this brush. I just ordered a new one....whats the age limit on a brush??  This is one is under $21.00 its made in France and comes in a couple of sizes ( I have the purse size to, its great ).  Its 9 inches wide and 2.5 inches wide, has 11 rows of black nylon bristles and no little balls on the end of the bristles.

I am hooked on this iphone charger! It keeps your phone in the up right position, it has the USB cord attached, only $10.99 and now everyone in our house has one...its a popular gadget over it. 
My phone case stays on while charging, my case isn't bulky or thick, both the children can charge with their cases on.

I have been asked to share the information on where to find the items listed. Hope it helps, have a great week.

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.
I doubled checked my order, I purchased in Dark Grey and I ordered an xl, and absolutely should have gotten a large. Its roomy!

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
