EcoTools ♥

This is kind of a review but I'm not thorough enough for one of those so this is more of just a rave.

 Hello EcoTools. 
You are my favorite brushes ever. Better than MAC. Cheaper than MAC.
Before I purchased these my brush collection just consisted of MAC.  I love MAC, I was a fangirl but these knock MAC's brushes out of the park.  Now there are still a few MAC brushes I love (217 and 134) the rest are just eh.  Here is a list of why I love my EcoTools more than MAC.

No Shedding
I HATE shedding. Hate it.  Number of Ecotool hairs shed = 0. Number of MAC = a kagillion and counting.

Super Soft
Emphasis on the super.  Not one of my MAC brushes compares.

Synthetic and Ecofriendly
I like the sustainable part of these brushes and no animal cruelty!

They are Inexpensive
For 5 brushes, the travel set cost $12 for me. That's approximately $2.50 each.  So worth that price.

Negative is that some of the brushes don't have a lot of use for me.  Since they come in sets you can't choose which brush you want so you could be stuck with some useless brush.

This one is worth it all.  It is the perfect blush brush. So, so, so, so soft. It applies really well and also is the perfect size to apply blush. It comes in the Bamboo 6 Piece Brush Set.

Go here, find how to buy them. You will not regret it.

Does anyone recommend any other synthetic brushes?

Blake Lively

She's so gorgeous. I love her long blonde hair. She is my hairspiration. I also love how confident she is in her body and it's not the normal suuuper skinny bod. The fact that she's dating Leonardo DiCaprio makes me hate her a little.  
Leonardo is mine.

Thrifted Tank, Motel Rocks Shorts, Tangerine Tropical Fabric.

I absolutely love the cheesy hawaiian/tropical/summer print right now. It makes me feel so summery. I want my very own hawaiian shirt which should be easy enough to find at a thrift store.
  I'm not sure if the Motel shorts count, since they're more of a rose garden print, but I included them anyways.

Thrifted: Haul #1

So I went thrifting...

and I'm obsessed.
Not to the point of going all the time but thinking of it. I just really like the whole treasure hunt aspect. It's a great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
I will do my best to remember the prices and I included the brand names for those who are curious. With that said here it goes.

Gold Necklace ($1.99) I love the way its linked and it feels like nice quality.
Gold Knot Earrings ($.99) I absolutely love these!  They are so cute.
Silver Fan Earrings ($.99) These are really cute. They're a bit cheap, like plastic metal(?)
White Floral Ring ($3.99) I really love the design. I'm trying to start a ring collection.
Octagon Silver Ring ($1.99) It's really simple and pretty.
National Geographic from 1981 ($.39) I have no idea what I'm going to do with this but the cover was so pretty.  Maybe frame it but I don't want to damage the magazine.

White Open Knit Pull-Over from Christopher & Banks ($3.00) 
I thought this would be a nice beach coverup.
Hawaiian Print Tank from Tiasa ($4.00)
I LOVE this.  It isn't the most figure flattering but I love the print.
Mint Green Cable Knit Sweater from Croft & Barrow ($4.00)
Gorgeous color.  It's a bit short but I think it makes it look cuter.
Black Open Crochet Sweater ($4.00)
No idea how to wear this. I just thought the fabric was so unique.

Along with rings I want to start a belt collection.

Green Leather Belt from Ralph Lauren ($1.99)
It's a really dark green and seems to be real.
Beaded Brown Belt ($.99)
I love the beaded detail. It's definitely a waist belt for me.
Braided Black Belt ($.99)
Super cheap quality but I wanted a really long belt. 

 So I have a third collection I want to start...
Random t-shirts, most with animals on them.

Yelling Moose/Caribou ($4.99) I love how artsy it looks.
Arizona Collage ($4.99) I like the navajo print and the big skull.

Anyone else have thrifting fever?
