This blush brush remains to be one in every of my favourite instruments. I used it this morning to use a wash of bronzer. Then, I promptly hid it from Rosie-Pose earlier than she might come up with it. 🙂
I’ll completely get to those purple lids in a second (BECAUSE PURPLE), however first, can we pleeeeease discuss in regards to the newest thriller to unfold on this finish of the keyboard — a thriller often known as “The Haunting of Casa MBB”?
Don’t fear, there’s nothing terribly sinister afoot (I’m not splashing buckets of holy water on issues left and proper, in case you’re questioning!).
I’ve been gently “haunted” for the previous few weeks by my favourite Chanel blush brush, which has been disappearing and reappearing all around the home in essentially the most random locations. I’ve discovered it on my mattress, within the hallway, on the center of the steps, on the kitchen ground.
Final week I discovered it smack dab in the midst of lounge, simply sitting there on the carpet proper in entrance of the sofa.
I simply assumed that Connor had grabbed it and performed with it and forgot to place it again, however once I requested her about it later she mentioned, “No, mama, I’ve my very own brushes.” (Hahaha! She completely does!)
Now, this brush simply so occurs to be one in every of my favourite blush brushes as a result of it’s tremendous gentle, and the comb head matches completely on prime of the apples of my cheeks and beneath the hole of my cheekbones, so I can use it for blush and bronzer. The bristles are additionally completely floofy, so it blends like a dream.
I believed, if an otherworldly entity/spirit has been obsessing over it, I fully perceive.
But it surely ended up not being resulting from a make-up brush-loving ghost. The disappearances have been in truth resulting from a cat.
YUP! Look who I simply discovered exterior my workplace doing her “hunter’s mewl.” It’s this cute little growl/grumble Rosie Posie does at any time when she stalks and hunts one in every of her gentle toy balls and she or he needs to indicate off the riches of her spoils.
I went into the hallway to analyze and provides her the same old consideration she likes after she catches her prey (“Oh, good job, Rosie-Pose! You’re such a great mouser. Look how nicely you stalked your toy!”), and that’s once I caught her red-handed (red-pawed?) with my Chanel brush in her mouth.
I assume from this level ahead, this brush could have a particular hiding place…inside a drawer!
(QUICK UPDATE: Later within the day, I additionally caught her dragging my NARS blush brush round, so she seems to be increasing her searching horizons.)
