What I Ate This Morning.

There's nothing really exciting happening, so I'm going to share with you what I ate this morning. I am currently on a healthy foods diet, and a good morning always starts with some good, healthy eats. I had a lovely smoothie bowl that was full of protein. I didn't have a lot of fruits around, so it wasn't as fruity as I normally would make it. I had bananas and mangoes. In my opinion, bananas are a must have in smoothies because it just makes them sweeter and tastier. So, when you have bananas, you are set. I froze one banana the night before so that it's ready for me to blend in the morning. So, in the smoothie, I had one frozen banana, a table spoon of almond butter (I used the maple flavored one from Justin's), a few pieces of diced mangoes, soy milk, and once everything seems to be blended, I added a little bit of unsweetened cocoa powder to give it a hint of chocolate flavor. After the smoothie was completely blended and smooth, I just poured it in a bowl and topped it would granola, chia seeds, and a few more pieces of diced mangoes. I can tell you that it was delicious! I had some coffee as well. What a yummy breakfast.

-A tip about smoothie bowls: when you make them, make sure you make them a little thicker than you would normally make smoothies so that it wouldn't just be a drink in a bowl. Haha.

Real Techniques Stole My Heart Again.

Hey there! So lately, I've been into makeup a lot more than usual. I have become obsessed with makeup. I've always loved makeup, but not as much as now. I have started to use more makeup and try different techniques with makeup. I just have fun with it. When it comes to applying makeup, my go-to makeup tools are from Real Techniques. Before, I used to use only their brushes to apply everything on my face. I didn't think that it was necessary to use a makeup sponge until I started to apply my under eye concealer a little differently. So, I went to Target and bought a $2 makeup sponge that is supposed to be a knock off of the BeautyBlender. When I first used it, it worked pretty well and blended beautifully, but then it just stopped doing it's job well. I thought, maybe I should invest in the BeautyBlender, and then I remembered that Real Techniques had a makeup sponge called the Miracle Complexion Sponge. I then did some research if it was really a dupe for the BeautyBlender. I just kept see great reviews and bought one for myself. I can tell you that I AM IN LOVE WITH IT. It's so soft and bouncy. The $2 makeup sponge was actually not as bouncy as this makeup sponge. It is affordable and it does its job very well. I am so pleased with it. This is why Real Techniques is my favorite makeup tools brand.

I got the 2-Pack one.

This is what it looks like when it's damp.

Look at that bounce.
