Lip Balm Review

Okay, so if you're like me and you have a bunch of friends who have been walking around carrying these little egg shaped items, you're wondering, "okay, what is that, and why is it so cute?", or at least that's what i first thought. These cool little domes are actually an innovative and unique little lip balm.

They are made by the brand EOS which stands for Evolution of Smooth. I bought my first EOS lip balm from Target around Christmas time for around 3 dollars which to me was just a little bit on the expensive side for some lip balm, but i soon found out that that was probably the best use of 3 dollars... ever.
First, the look:

  • small, round, absolutely adorable. 
  • they come in several colors, and flavors
  • the top has a special locking quality, so the top will never fall off in your bag. 
I have purchased the flavors Summer Fruit, Tangerine, and also Strawberry Sorbet, all of which i LOVE. They smell amazing, and are very moisturizing. 

So those are all pro's, but with every product there are con's as well. One con of this product would have to be that the outer casing gets dirty rather quickly, especially if you're like me and like to keep lip balm in your back pack... also little particles get caught under the cap, which can be a little annoying also... but over all i would have to say that I still LOVE this product and continue to buy it. 

If you're interested in checking these out try Walmart or Target. 

Outfit of the Day May 27th

This was my outfit from yesterday, Sunday May 27th. My dress is maxi style and has nautical navy and white stripes on it. This is actually a dress that I made myself with the help of a tutorial on another blog that I came across. The navy blazer was a hand me down from my neighbor, and is the brand Loft, by Ann Taylor. My floral print scarf was a great find from Goodwill, and is supposedly Oscar De La Renta... I'm going to have to do some more research to make sure that it's legit. But we're moving on, my handbag is also a hand me down from my father's step mother, and it's vintage Coach. LOVE this bag, she also gave me another one that I'm sure you will see in some other outfit's of the day. My watch was a gift from one of the mothers at my church. It's Vanity Fair, and doesn't even work anymore, but it's gorgeous so I still wear it. Lastly, my earrings and necklace, which you can't see too well, are vintage also.

Spring Look Book

Spring is eternally one of my favorite seasons. The perfect weather, not too cold, nice and warm, with cool breezes  every so often... even though over here on the East Coast, Spring has been a little on the 'un-springy' side, with temperatures that are shooting sky high, but I'm not the weather man so I should probably get on with what i actually want to talk about. My Spring 2012 Look book of sorts.

These are a few outfits that I either have worn this Spring or plan on wearing, hope this gives you some ideas. Tell me what you think by leaving a cupcake!

Hola! For my first do it yourself tutorial, I am going to be showing you how you can embellish your own denim vest or jacket using a fabric of your choice. Embellishing pieces is a huge trend for the Spring this year, and why go out and spend 30 bucks on a piece that you can completely do yourself.  This is a fun project that you can do by yourself, for yourself, or you can make them and give them away as gifts. What ever you choose to do though, I hope that you have fun , making your Embellished piece.

What You'll Need:

  • Your vest or jacket 
  • A good amount of fabric that you like
  • Scissors
