Bellus Academy Beauty Blogger Day {Recap}

Over the weekend, the wonderful people of Bellus Academy hosted a Beauty Blogger Workshop where their talented speakers gave us informative crash courses in the areas of hair, make up and nails! After grabbing a cup of coffee and treats from the dessert table, bloggers gathered ready to learn from the Bellus professionals.

First up, Bellus Academy Educator, Erik Thrane walked us through two hairstyles while sharing genius tips like putting the hairspray on the brush vs your hand, among many others. Erik, who also has a great sense of humor, had us both learning and laughing throughout his demos.

As we changed gears to learn about make up, Bellus Academy Alumn Marina stepped in to show us how to create a perfect for Fall look with a live eye shadow tutorial and lipstick demo. There were great things to be learned for both experienced and new beauty bloggers, such as tips on how to create a beautiful winged liner!

To finish up our day, the talented Ally Caraveo who's Nail Art needs no words (as you can see in the pictures above) created her nail art before our eyes while bloggers asked questions. After the session we came in for a close up of her microscopic works of art- simply amazing!

The workshop was a great experience especially for those of us who have always yearned to go to beauty school, learn more about beauty and/or improve our beauty techniques to better serve our readers.
San Diego Style Bloggers would like to thank Bellus Academy for their hospitality, delicious snacks, talent and prizes, as well as a big thank you to BeSocial PR for putting this together. 
As always, THANK YOU to all of the bloggers that were in attendance!! It's always great to see new faces! If you blogged about the event, make sure add the link to your blog post using the "add your link" button below so that we can visit your blog post and share the love!

Local Business Spotlight: Yellow House Bikini

The young women behind Yellow House Bikinis may make you feel old, but also make you feel so proud to be an American.  I mean, where else do two high school girls get the entrepreneurial spirit so strongly that they go ahead and start their own design business before they can even vote? Carlsbad natives Lizzy Grove and Megan Jenkins (top photo) are still in their last year of high school and first year of college (respectively), and they are working to expand the brand that was born in the Fashion Design class where they met.

Capitalizing on the surf culture of San Diego, Grove and Jenkin currently sell their bikinis and lingerie at local surf event and street fairs, as well as their website www.YellowHouseBikini.com.  For now, each piece is handcrafted in their homes, so now is our chance to say, “we knew them when”.  With the moxie these women are showing, at this young age, it’s a safe bet that they are going places.
