Fun (Not at all Inebriated) Tip

Hey, y'allllllllll! I may or may not be completely sober writing this. Open to interpretation! I also may or may not be listening to the lecture for my class tomorrow on Eco-Heroes. And the Nobel Peace Prize. WHOO. But anyways. I had a point in writing this (it was a good point, too). (Also, the lecturer just asked if anyone knew who Alfred Nobel was, and then waited approximately 1.5 seconds before answering. NOT ENOUGH TIME, Y'ALL.) But fun tip! (Did you know that the Nobel Peace Prize was intended to be awarded regardless of nationality? And that "ecology" can be subsumed under "peace" in the Nobel Prize categories? Now you do!) (Also, apparently "Maathai" is pronounced [ma'dai]. Who knew?) ANYWAYS. If you're wanting to order from an online site, with the exception of big multi-brand sites like Sephora, Ulta, Drugstore, etc., you should put things into your cart, create an account, and then not check out. Wait! For a couple of days! And many companies will send you a discount code. Tarte sends one for 20%, Pacifica for 10%, and Surrender to Chance for 5%. (And, loosely related, a lot of sites send out discount codes to email subscribers [Makeup Artist's Choice comes to mind in particular], so it's well worth signing up for emails. If you don't want lots of spam, just create an email account devoted to such things! And don't sign up for Estee Lauder, Clinique, Lancome, or Neiman Marcus emails, because they send out every. effing. day. Very irritating.)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to learn more about Maathai and Al Gore. Are there any other online retailers that you've encountered that give discounts to patient customers? Or any fun facts you know about other eco-heroes? (Yeah, I know, super random. Who the hell knows how they come up with these topics.)
