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 also called “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 everywhere in the home in probably the most random locations. I’ve discovered it on my mattress, within the hallway, on the center of the steps, on the kitchen flooring.

Final week I discovered it smack dab in the midst of front room, simply sitting there on the carpet proper in entrance of the sofa.

Hmm… 🤔

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 stated, “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 smooth, and the comb head suits 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 assumed, if an otherworldly entity/spirit has been obsessing over it, I utterly perceive.

But it surely ended up not being on account of a make-up brush-loving ghost. The disappearances have been in reality on account of a cat.

YUP! Look who I simply discovered outdoors my workplace doing her “hunter’s mewl.” It’s this cute little growl/grumble Rosie Posie does every time she stalks and hunts one in every of her smooth toy balls and he or she desires to indicate off the riches of her spoils.

I went into the hallway to research and provides her the standard consideration she likes after she catches her prey (“Oh, good job, Rosie-Pose! You’re such mouser. Look how properly you stalked your toy!”), and that’s once I caught her red-handed (red-pawed?) with my Chanel brush in her mouth.

Thriller solved!

I suppose from this level ahead, this brush may 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 looking horizons.)
