Battle of the Budget Beauty Blending Sponges
When it comes to beauty tools, sponges seem to be a makeup artist's best friend. Sponges can be used for pretty much anything! They can blend out foundation and concealer, apply a cream highlight, and some people even swear that sponges set powder beautifully. While many swear by the Beauty Blender, I just can't bring myself to spend $19 on a sponge that I'll have to replace. Since I'm not ready to splurge on a Beauty Blender, I've been on the hunt for the best budget sponge on the market. My journey brought me to the following two contenders: the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge and the Earth Therapeutics Precisso Beauty Blending Sponge. Which one is the best budget sponge?

San Diego Style Bloggers Meet Up at Bottles & Wood
Earlier this month I got the opportunity to attend the San Diego Style Bloggers meet up at Bottles & Wood. Due to my work schedule I haven't been able to attend many meet ups, so you can only imagine how happy I was when I saw that I could go to this. No more living vicariously through my Instagram feed! Well, at least not this time around. Not only was I excited to meet all the new faces popping up on the San Diego Style Bloggers' Instagram, but I really wanted to see how glass bottles are repurposed into jewelry, glassware, and home decor. As a bonus, we all got to make our own necklaces or earrings made out of various alcohol and soda bottles!

Chatty Makeup Tuturial using the Soothingsista x Memebox Palette
I've always enjoyed watching chatty makeup tutorials but have never actually filmed one because of how challenging it would be. In case you didn't know, I have two YouTube channels and two blogs in order to be a bilingual bloggers. That means that I do everything twice- yes, twice. A few days ago I was just in the mood to get ready and talk to the camera so I did that. Not going to lie, it was a pain to edit but I'm happy with the result. In this video I'm going to show you how I used the SoothingSista x Memebox #EYELOVESF Quad to achieve this look. If you want to see this look (plus some dorky pictures of me from high school) just click below to watch the video.
