Adult Strawberry Lemonade

The other day I went to Logan's and had a drink called the Strawberry Stormy. It was so yummy that I decided to make my own version but with a little twist to it. This is what I'm calling an adult strawberry lemonade. It has some similar ingredients of that drink: strawberries & ginger ale but that is where the similarities end.

I am using Bacardi Limon run instead of Sailor Jerry's spiced rum. I am also added fresh lemon juice for the lemonade effect. Side note: I learned the hard way when they say use fresh juice by all means USE FRESH. The store bought is too tart & kills the taste of any good drink. 

Here is the recipe for my Adult Strawberry Lemonade

In the shaker put:
1 cup ginger ale
1/2 cup ice
1 jigger Bacardi limon rum (or if you're me 2 )
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
Juice from 1 lemon

Combine all the ingredients in a shake until mixed well. In the glass I served it in I put another 1/2 cup of strawberries and a lemon wedge.

This drink is great for an afternoon hanging on the patio or a girls night.

Morning make-up routine

Depending on the day and time usually depends on how much make up I wear. Without fail I always at least wear mascara, concealer, and some lip color. I am going to share with y'all my make-up routine. Here is a picture of me without any make-up:

Before applying my make-up I wash my face with Revision skincare Brightening Face wash.
I then apply my D.E.J eye cream. I usually apply this in the morning and before I go to bed.
Lastly my moisturizer called Multi-protection broad spectrum with SPF 50.
I mainly use Revision Skincare if you haven't noticed that.

When applying my make-up, I start with a primer called Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Water. They have it in two sizes: the one linked and a smaller travel version (which is pictured) for $16. I like that I can spray it to set my make-up in the morning and carry it with me to freshen my make-up throughout the day. If you do not like the spray, they have the original which is the Iconic Photo Finish Foundation Primer. The large is a little more than the spray but it has a $16 travel size as well.

Next, I put on my foundation which is Smashbox Studio Skin 15 Hour Wear Foundation. For me, it does not feel as heavy on my skin as other foundations I have tried. I put it everywhere but around my eyes.

Next, I use Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer. I pretty much use this everyday since I have undereye circle due to my allergies. It works great on covering those and blemishes. I go through this once every 3 to 4 months which isn't that bad for using it everyday.

After that I put on my mascara. Bare Minerals Lash Domination Volumizing Mascara.  I received some of this as a gift for Christmas last year and have been using every since. If lengthening your lashes and making them look fuller is what you want out of a mascara, then this is the one I would suggest trying. At $18, I liked it better than some of the more expensive ones that I tried in the past.

Lastly, I put my eyeliner one. The liner I use is from the Sephora collection which is their Classic Line 24HR Felt Eyeliner. The tip is not to thin or too think. Personally, I like liner that tips are like those Uni-ball pen tips which, this remind me of those.

Also, I just got my free birthday gift from Sephora which ended up being two Nars lip pencils. I actually have been using them as lipstick instead of lip liner due to the way it looks after I put it on.
And here is the end result is this:
Shiny Kiss Flavored Gloss
Just use a tiny bit of the gloss though because if you use more than that it will be super shiny and sticky.
I know that some of these products are little pricey but Skincare is one of the areas that I spend a good amount of money. I tend to keep most of these for 3-6 months or until I run out of the product (except for the face wash which is the supersized one that I have had for about 6 months). I consider it a good investment to buy some really great make-up and skincare products that you like.
I would love to hear about some of the products that you use in you daily routines.
Everyone have a great rest of your Tuesday.

Victoria's Secret sales

While I am "remodeling" I wanted to tell all of you about the great sales that Victoria's Secret has going on right now. They have their sport bras, which I love for $35. Here are two of my favorites:
Knockout by Victoria’s Secret Front-Close Sport Bra
The Knockout is a great bra for a girl who needs extra support when exercising. I wear this when I am running or doing weights.

 Angel by Victoria's Secret Sport Bra
The Angel is for those who need support but not a great amount. This is great for a jog or lower impact exercise.

They also are having their annual swimsuit sale and one of their clearance sales.

Oh, and all their panties including pink are 7 for $27.

If you haven't already checked out the sale I would suggest doing it when you get a chance. I know especially with the sports

 bras they are a great buy if you workout a great deal like I do. And everyone lives a Victoria's Secret sale.

Until next time

Hello all,

It has been a few months (about three and half to be exact). Between the week of jury duty that I had to do, the whole month of February that I was out of school for about three days each week, work, and all my school projects I had, I have been a definite blog slacker.

I know that I have said that I was going to revamp the blog and this time I an 100% for real. I have actually taken the first step in doing this by changing the name of the blog. And today I did the second step by changing my URL. It is now my name So, throughout the rest of May there are going to be little changing here and with it being completely done in June. The month of June is fitting considering my birthday is at the beginning of the month (yay to 33).

Here's to new beginnings (really this time) and I hope everyone is enjoying spring unlike me who can't breathe between the Alabama humidity/pollen happening. Anyway, until next time: Have fun in the sun and enjoying life all.
