Here's the deets on some things from this week.
B THE COLLECTION JACKET
This was a highly requested item, the blue jacket I wore the other day (Tuesday) at the Houston Rodeo,
This jacket is from B the Collection, its called the Darling Duster and I wore with with a simple white long sleeve button up and a pair of the Wal-Mart jeans I had altered (see last weeks post). The code Bvip40 should still work for 40% off any purchase from B the Collections site.
POM POM STRAW CLUTCH
This clutch was by far one of the most requested items to have more information on. I received this clutch as a birthday gift from Amy ( a friend from San Antonio, TX). She's a doll, you all would love her and I don't think I've ever heard her say a ugly thing. I meet her originally on Instagram, we have been Round Top antique shopping (junk month) together and other fun things, she's great. Since the clutch was such a hit with you all (me to) I asked if she would share the details. She was happy to.
The clutch is from Bless Your Heart ( shop in San Antonio ), they also come in black straw and are $25.00 the shop has an instagram account, you can find them by searching shopbyh or call them (1-210-998-4226) and they would be happy to ship. I do NOT think they have an unlimited supply so call early. Tell them you are looking for the clutch Tikaa got for her birthday.

EARRINGS AND WRAP
This Black and White gingham poncho is EVERYTHING!!!! The ruffle around the neck and opening of poncho is fabulous, it makes the poncho!!! I don't say wrap because the whole thing is sewn together and you put your head through the opening and the ruffles stand up and accent your neck and face to perfection!!!!! They are sold by a woman on Etsy ( I'll link) and she has all kinds of gingham colors, plaids, prints and solids to choose from, This is a great piece to have for spring.
Check out her Instagram account: PreppyPinkShop and she her fabulous creations here
Earrings are Lisi Lerch and these and the tassel earrings I have ( in gold and turquoise) are some of my go to earrings. I also have this pair in the tiger eye color also, I thought it looked like tortoise.
You can find these earrings and the tassel ones as well here
I'd love to have the Gold Disk earrings, and the VIVI in Miss Pink and Turquoise, and Margo earrings in Emerald...just saying!
GLASS BLOWN JEWELRY
This is some of my favorite jewelry and unbelievably beautiful and each piece is truly a one of a kind. Talk about making a statement. These pieces will have people talking.

TOOTHBRUSH SHAPED MAKEUP BRUSHES
I bought the name brand set of these brushes from Neiman Marcus ( still have and use them), then saw these similar ones on eBay and my curiosity had me. I had to order to compare the two sets, The original set I purchased from Neiman Marcus was $210, the similar set I found on eBay was $20.00 with shipping. In ALL seriousness I like the eBay set better, the handles are solid plastic (not a hollow plastic handle like more expensive brand), the bristle are so so so soft and I received 10 brushes for $20.00.
The name brand ones (available at Neiman Marcus) were $210.00 for five brushes.
Side note: The set I purchased on eBay do NOT claim to be the name brand ones, are not "fakes" of the name brand , they are strictly similar in design and function with a different name all together.
Here's the link to the eBay seller I purchased from.
ESSENTIAL OIL DIFFUSER
Small water bottle size essential oil diffuser, works great in the car or small spaces ( I had it in the living quarters of the horse trailer). It was $15.15 with shipping but if you look around on eBay you might be able to find a bit cheaper.
You can find it here
LEATHER TRAVEL JEWELRY BOX
I found this one at the Houston Rodeo, it's all leather and so stinking cute and perfect for travel. I shared more details on snapchat ( Tikaac). Its all of $37.00 and available in a variety of colors. If you can't find on their website, call them!!! They are so helpful.
There number is 830-997-6001

SHOE TRAVEL BAGS
We travel a lot (horse shows count as travel, right). I hate the thought of putting my shoes in with my clothes. YUCK, they have been all over the place and there is a strong chance I have stepped in horse poo at one point or another. I don't want the bottom of my shoes touching my clothes ( or even in the same bag), These bags are great to prevent that and super inexpensive ($1.69 and $0.76 in shipping). You can find them here
(picture is from the linked site)
I pack a Shannie Girl Shaw everywhere I go and I mean EVERYWHERE. They have a super classy look about them, are machine washable and she has tons of colors ( I have: dark browm, cream, tan, red,and turquoise. I want: gray, blue (kind of denim color) and black)
The loose powder I have been using (since last week) and really enjoy is from Chanel. I am in the shade Claire or trasuclent 1
The pressed powder I use and have for years is the Rimmel Stay Matte ( in the shade Sandstorm)
Its super inexpensive, matte and works great with out being cake-y or weird. It's all of $3.99 ( the complete opposite end of the Chanel price range) and you can find it at Ulta and most drugstores,
NATASHA DENONA EYE SHADOW
I have talked about this and talked about this palette. It was a birthday gift from my friend Kristin Gehm ( she's YouTube beauty guru) and she has given me the challenge of using it up. I have gladly accepted the challenge, it's beautiful and feels great, not to mention pigmented and GORGEOUS. Its by the brand Natasha Denona and I have my eye on more of her fabulous eye palettes.
