Oh decisions decisions! Now that I've pledged my hair cutting schemes to the internet world I can't go back, ha!

But I have been fooled before by interesting covers, so I wasn't about to dish out 20-30 bucks for another snore. At the time, you see, I was at the airport stores awaiting check in. I had about an hour to kill at my hands so I figured a quick flip read wasn't going to kill me. I loved it! It was witty fast paced and Marin Lewycka exudes a personality Stephanie Meyer can never dream of.
The storyline of the book brings out a deep sense of family. Despite the sibling rivalry between the sisters and their mutual love/heart towards their father, it reminds us that the ingrained tension is a result of a need for approval from those we care most.
Anyway the descriptions are hilarious, (I especially enjoyed "Botticellian breasts") the style is sassy and its'a book you won't feel guilty about reading later. So go for it.
This is closer to something I have right now but I would have to say that scarlette is a lot more daring than just creme, no? It's a shame, this Urban Outfitter peice used to come in an electric blue but I haven't seen it for a while.
Here's something more traditional in beanie wear. But you have to agree, the cable knit and pompoms are so much more attractive than fine knit plus football team attachment, yes? Cuteness courtesy of LORIKEET, another oneline brand.

But then, one day i ran out. (That's a lie, i lost my trusty nivea one and had only a grapefruit nivea one that unfortunately hads a red tinge. And that fine, but I also currently have pimples above my lips and the red really brings it out. Too much information? Sorry, I'm feeling sharing today. ) And then it struck me! I had remembered reading something about exfoliating your lips. I mean its true right? If you can exfoliate skin everywhere else why not your lips? Just be very gentle!
1. sink a glob of lipbalm onto your lips so they're nice and conditioned and then wait about five or so minutes to allow it to sink in.
2. grab a soft tooth brush or a childrens tooth brush and gentled rub it over your tips in a circular movement. be very very gentle here. really. Its far better to spend more time on it than having your lips scraped away. Think about it
3. Once you're done rub another glob of lipbalm over your lips again and leave it to set. Probs 5 minutes or so again and you're done.
Okay this is probably something you shouldn't be doing all that often (1 every two weeks perhaps?) but it allows for your lipbalm to better sink into your skin so it can do its job. It will also mean you won't have to use it nearly as often. Yay!
