Dulce Candy’s Birthday Dinner + Jude is a model!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY DULCE
Oh my goodness its been so hot lately! I tried to get dressed earlier but I was melting.
If you think Jude has long hair you should look at his dad…with the exception that he spikes it to the sky. I know if it wasn’t for ceramic flat irons my hair would be a wavy mess.

Last night we got invited to have dinner with Dulce and her friends at the Cheesecake Factory at the Americana. It was a beautiful night and the temp dropped before we arrived. We even had a table outside so we can enjoy the ambiance.

I like how hes looking at me like I’m crazy haha.
Okay, so maybe Jude isn’t a model…yet!
Look at my honey walk out the front door in style and on his own!

Shirt: OshKosh B’gosh
Jeans: Arizona
Shoes: Black Vans – Slipons
Kris and I both had the best pizzas with the freshest ingredients. He had the 4 Seasons Pizza and I had the Roasted Veggie Pizza. So good, which reminds me…we have left overs!
When we got there, they already had a plate with assorted slices (small) of bread and banana for Jude. It was very sweet. Jude enjoyed himself, he agreed that the food was finger licking good. (picture below taken by Jesse)

Here’s a picture of BIG FOOT and Dulce lol. Can I be any bigger in every way? I should know better than to wear platform heels when I go out with her. One of two things happened…
I look like a monster or she looks like my daughter!

Close up is much better lol.

I need to get Jude a ball cap. He looks so cute in this hat…I think it took me 5 tries before getting this shot because he hates wearing hats! I love him in the vintage looking newsboy hats from H&M for kids. Super cute!

Here is a snap shot of Jude and his daddy.
I love when my boys are together. Kris is really good with Jude, and I know Jude is happy with his Dad. Don’t you love their tops? We even rolled up Jude’s longsleves to match.

To end the night, we sang “Happy Birthday” with the cutest Hello Kitty cake.

I didn’t get to taste it because I was so full I was scared it i took even one more sip of my Blueberry Mojito I was going to explode!
I think after dinner, everyone planned to go bowling but Jude’s bedtime is at 10:00 and he was already turning into a pumpkin. I was really tired from the heat so we decided to call it a night.
Have you visited a Cheesecake factory? Did you like it? What did you order?

New Drugstore Foundation + Application

I went bargain hunting for a good drugstore foundation.
Super Stay 24hr Makeup Micro-Flex
by Maybelline NewYork
The lord knows I shouldn’t be buying MAC foundation right now, so I saved about $20 and went with this affordable drugstore alternative.
I also wanted to try out one of my new Sigma Makeup Brushes and see if all the talk was true, and I was happy it was! I love this combo.
If I had to compare this foundation to anything by MAC it would have to be the Studio Fix Fluid Foundation with a few exceptions.

The formula is almost the same.
I think the Super Stay by Maybelline is great because you get just as much product for less money, and it lasts longer. This one is true to its bottle color also.
(I am NC30 by MAC – This is True Beige)
This brush, Flat Top Synthetic Kabuki – F80, is like no other brush I have ever tried. I always used a sponge, clean fingers, or a foundation brush. After trying out this beauty, which will run you a nice $16 on the Sigma website, its a small price to pay for a perfect application.

The bristles are softer than you could imagine. The thing I hated about the Duo Fiber brushes is that it does eventually give you the “airbrush” look…but with this one its almost at first stroke it gets the job done. I want to order one for each kind of foundation that I own.
(I’m a lazy brush cleaner)Unlike the traditional foundation brushes, this one leaves your face streak free!

I was so happy with this duo I had to share it with you all.
I hope this post helped those of you who were looking for a drugstore brand of foundation that gave you the department store coverage without kicking you in the purse.
What drugstore foundation do you love? Any dupes?
Let me know, I am always out on the hunt for great dupes.
