The Beauty Blender Sponge and Musings

So, I mentioned I got a delivery from Sephora the other day and here's what I got...

It's the Beauty Blender sponge. Have you heard about it? You use it to apply liquid foundation and I was pretty impressed with it. 

You soak it in water (which makes it expand) then squeeze out the excess water, squeeze it one more time with a paper towel to remove a little more water, (you definitely want it damp, so don't dry it completely) then dot your foundation on your face and use this to blend it. Use the bottom (wide) end to kind of "bounce" the foundation all over. It's like you're tapping it all over your face. Does that make sense? :) 

It did a really good job of blending in my foundation (I use L'Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte.) There are lots of YouTube videos out there with tips on how to use this. It really is all it's cracked up to be, so I had to share. :) 

And as a bonus, Sephora always lets you choose three free samples with your order, so I chose three cologne samples to add to the Valentine gifts for my boys. :) Here's a couple of them:

They smell SO good too! 

So, switching gears here. I saw this on Instagram the other day. @theothersideofneutral posted it and I had to laugh...

So true, right? :) 

But having said that, I did manage to make some homemade bread the other day. My son texted me from school and requested I make it, so how could I not? Nothing like the smell of freshly baked bread when you walk in the door. 

Speaking of carbs, I made these biscuits the other day too...

They were truly the best, fluffiest, most delicious biscuits I've ever made. So yummy and everyone loved them. 

I got the recipe from my sweet friend Stacey at Poofing the Pillows

Click on her blog link above for the recipe. It only has three ingredients, so it's quick and easy. 

I posted this pic of my bedroom on IG  and thought I'd share it here too. I added the little floral arrangement on the bedside table. 

Here's a closer look. I've had this for years and years and it's been this close to being in the trash several times. Now I'm glad I saved it. 

So, that's all for now. Hope y'all have a great day!
