Battle of the Lip Balms

Lip balms don’t get enough credit.  They may not be able to create a vampy attitude like our favorite dark red lipstick or add that pop of shimmer like our can’t-live-without lip gloss, but without lip balm a perfect pout would never be possible.  Here are the products that have the ability to soothe and nourish even the dryest, most chapped of Winter lips as we transition into dewy, Spring beauty.

NYC in January | Photo Diary + Vlog

Short, but sweet.  Its starting to seem like I’ll never be in New York for more than three days at a time.  I think if I managed to stay a full week, I would never want to leave.  My best friend and I made a brief layover in New York on the way to Europe for the chance to enjoy early Winter in the city for a few days.  Although I
