I woke up this morning to a nice winter-y mix. It's so nice to sleep in on a snow day! I took Baby Bird on her morning walk and then took a nice hot shower. Everything's great, except for the paper I seriously have to start writing. Bah humbug. So, before I go down my humbugg-y path, I thought I'd share a quick post / review on my EcoTools Bronzer Brush that I recently picked up from ULTA.
Ever since I became more aware about the potential animal cruelty involved in fur brushes (most brushes are fur), I've begun exploring synthetic options whenever I get the hankering for a new brush. Even though I do enjoy using my high end brushes (usu. Bobbi Brown), I find myself reaching more and more frequently for my EcoTools! A lot of EcoTools are awesome, but this is probably the brush that gets the most love from bloggers. And deservedly so!
I think EcoTools are available from ULTA, Walgreens, as well as some other places. It's about $11-12 at ULTA, but I've heard that ULTA tends to be more expensive. However, EcoTools are frequently "on sale" there, such as B1G1 50% off. Or you can just use one of their $3.50 off coupons that seem to be perpetually available. Or both. And then get a high quality brush for under $10!
Finally, some wintery pawprints (another dog's, not Baby Bird) to celebrate the onset of winter. I changed up my blog theme last night because all this cold weather puts me in the mood for bright colors! Shabbyblogs.com has some really awesome themes. Of course I chose: Southern Girl. What can I say, I'm just drawn to southern things. Can't help it. I tried making a banner from that site too, but it's a bit short for my taste. I'll have to figure out how to elongate it, or just find another one that I really like.
Any snow out where you are?
It's essay time. And tea time.
Love in the dove,
Uwah the brush looks super nice :)ReplyDelete
And of course you know that there's def snow here! I took a walk in it today super bundled up because it was freezing. The first manageable snow is always nice but in dreading the rest of the winter from january on already :/
awww pawprints :)ReplyDelete
its snowing here in toronto too! in which state are you btw?
Ohh that brush looks so nice and soft! I will have to check if we have this brand in Canada :)ReplyDelete
Sheshhh I am drinking tea and finishing up my essay right now... For once I started well in advance, I might even be able to hand it in a day early! I wrote a schedule and stuck to it instead of procrastinating until the last minute... it works so much better!
Also I think the new blog look is super cute :) I need help with my banner too.. I can't figure out how to make it look rightReplyDelete
ponyo - i know! the snow here has melted and turned into sheet ice. I feel like I'm walking in the arctic or something.ReplyDelete
splattergirl - I didn't know you were from Toronto! There's so many Canadians online... who knew. The location of my bird-cave is a secret, but it's not too far from you ;-P
tasha - hope studying's going well. It would be a shame if they didn't carry EcoTools in Canada... after all you guys are more "environmentally friendly" than the US
