BALMSHOT: Put Some Lip Balm in Your Backpack – Back to School Giveaway
Despite my school days being long behind me, I remember those long days sitting in a room, listening to a teacher speak about topics I did not quite understand. Many times the air conditioner would be on, and inevitably dry out my lips.

To get you ready for a new year ahead BALMSHOT is giving a 6 pack of balms with a Ditty Bag for one lucky winner!
BALMSHOT: Lip Balm in Your Basket – Spring 2017 Giveaway
Given that we have had such a swing in weather, my lips tend to be the unwitting victims of the wind. There is one lip balm that helps relieve mt worn lips, and that is my BALMSHOT Lip Balm.
Since each part of the United States has it’s own weather hurdles, the dried lips problem becomes an “every man” problem. Since I am a fan of giving things that have a practical purpose, there is no better item than lip balm.
It is the time of year when the wind blows off the ocean causing chapped lips. Each year I know it is coming yet I act surprised when my lips are dry and cracking. This occurs so often in my house, that the words ” I told you so” have been uttered more times than I can count.
Since I go through an adequate amount of lip balm, and am looking once that moisturizes, protects and has a pleasant flavor. When I recently saw that BALMSHOT Lip Balm had released a new lip balm that contained pomegranate, I knew I wanted to try it. comes in one of the more unique packages I have seen, as well was being a beeswax SPF 15 lip balm.
There is no denying that the weather has begun to change. With the changing weather also comes changing lip conditions.
As a blogger I get the opportunity to review many different items, and while I have a couple of favorites I love discovering something new. Back in March I attended the Natural Products Expo I came upon a company that not only has delicious lip balms but also has ecological packaging.
The company is Eco Lips and they are making their way in the lip balm marker with their handcrafted products. The company is headquartered in Cedar Rapids Iowa and is each product is made with organic ingredients. Recently I had the opportunity review their lips balms and a lip sugar
5 Reasons To Visit Sun Bum’s West Coast Office & Concept Store and Beach Combo Giveaway!
I could be one of the luckiest people in the world – I live right in the middle of a surf town – Encinitas, California.
If you have never heard of our town let me share a couple of facts with you – the main artery is the Coast Highway 101. Taking this iconic and scenic route is a favorite of Jason and I’s, and also a wonderful place to truly take in the wonder and true “vibe” of this surf town. With a population of almost 60,000 people, almost someone you encounter knows a mermaid or two.
My favorite thing about my town is the diversity I encounter and see daily. This is a town where you can not judge a book by its cover and if you do, then you are the naive one. Everyone here is friendly and there is no judgement for cutting out of the office at 3PM to hit the waves. This is a town that embraces beachy waves – in the sand or on a head of hair.
Taking all this into account it is no wonder that Sun Bum chose Encinitas as the location for its West Coast offices and Concept Store. Being that it was a mere couple miles down the 101, I decided it was time to support this newest addition to our town.
Here are my 5 reasons you have to stop in next time you are in Encinitas!
As I have gotten older I have realized that life is full of coincidence, and how timing can really make the difference. I want to share with you a great example this coincidences. Back in February I had the opportunity to review Sun Bum’s Shampoo and Conditioner. One of the things that have remained with me is the Sun Bum logo.
The Sun Bum logo is a hefty, sunglasses wearing gorilla – something that stays with you and stands out in a sea of generic logos. So, with this memorable and recently seen logo, it was easy to notice it when I saw it out my car window one day. I squealed with delight and immediately when home and investigated further. I was excited to learn that their West Coast Office is going to be within 2 miles of my house.
The new West Coast office is going to house offices and a concept store! I am very excited to see this in my community. So it probably goes without saying that when I had the opportunity to review Sun Balm Lip Balm, I was excited!
I have mentioned how lucky I am to live at the beach and on the coast of San Diego. While the sunny days outnumber the cloudy days, there is a downside – chapped lips.
Since I live close to a convienent store, I often take walks to get a coffee drink or to get laundry quarters. There are days that the wind coming off the ocean and reaching my lips is a bit harsher than I am able to handle. The other problem I suffer from is lack of water in my daily routine. I try as I might, but just do not get the water intake I should have which results in dry chapped lips.
I go through an adequate amount of lip balm, and am always looking once that moisturizes, protects and has a pleasant flavor. When I was recently contacted by a company whose lip balm is in gun shells, it got my attention. Balmshot Lip Balm comes in one of the more unique packages I have seen, as well was being a beeswax SPF 15 lip balm.
Peaches & Petals Subscription Box – February 2016 Review and Giveaway
I will be honest and let you in on a secret – it takes a lot to really impress me and make me giddy with excitement. One of these things that does accomplish this is candy scented products. I love the smell of sugar and sweet and the sweetness it evokes. I have never been a girly-girl, but there is something that is not girl, but nostalgic about candy.
With the right piece of candy, or smell, it can take you back to a time long forgotten. The memories we have can be evoked by smell, and most of us have a sweet memory tied to a sweet smell.
Since February is the month synonymous with sweetness and love, I loved seeing the February Peaches and Petals box. In case you are wondering, Peaches and Petals is taking the concept of a monthly subscription box with value and making a monthly lifestyle box.
This is a monthly box that caters to ‘fun. flirty, fashionable vintage and modern lifestyles’. What this means is that as the subscriber each month you will receive 3-5 items hand selected by the Peaches and Petals team. The items can range from books, household items, nail polish, makeup, scarves or/and something you never imagined. Additional and other items can be included, depending on the box and theme for the month.
It has been mentioned in previous posts that I am not a girly girl, and the problems that can sometimes arise from this life curve I was dealt at an early age. Despite this seemingly easy hurdle to overcome I have been struggling with it my whole life with being a girly girl. Despite this I am beginning to overcome. I have discovered the older I get the more I like to have a variety of beauty products to solve the inevitable ailments and beauty issues I encounter daily. The one problem that seems to stay with me is chapped lips and this could be due to being so close to the Pacific Ocean.
I recently discovered Rosebud Perfume’s line of Lip Balms and I reached out to inquire about the ingredients and they were kind enough to send me a couple to review. I was sent Smith’s Rose and Mandarin Lip Balm and Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm. The thing that piqued my interest is that the company has been around since 1892 and is family owned with a simple mission of offering multi-usage products that are affordable and effective.
