eraclea Ever-Moist Lip Balm

eraclea's Ever-Moist Lip Balm is a new favorite lip balm of mine. It's a .35 FL oz lip balm that deeply hydrates your lips. Its emollient-rich formula gives your lips a satiny-smooth feel, while shea butter, jojoba, and antioxidants condition and revitalize lips.

eraclea's Ever-Moist Lip Balm glides easily onto your lips, leaving them feeling soft and supple. I also enjoyed the light sent that the lip balm has.

You could also use this lip balm as a gloss since it does make your lips shiny when first applied. It retails for $16.00 which seems pretty expensive, however the tube is rather large for a lip balm and a little goes a long way! I'm thinking it's going to take me forever before it runs out.

eraclea was nice enough to let me offer a lip balm to my readers in a giveaway, so make sure you enter below so you can get your very own Ever-Moist Lip Balm!

Cool Whip Heart Hot Cocoa

So a quick post on a cute way to dress up that cup of hot cocoa.

This is a great idea I saw on Pinterest so I had to try it out. It's ridiculously easy and your kids will love it...ok, ok, you'll love it too.



Take a container of Cool Whip and pop it in the freezer until frozen. Make a cup of your favorite hot cocoa (or even coffee for that matter) and set aside.

Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, press the cookie cutter into the frozen Cool Whip and use a spoon to remove from the container.

Pop the Cool Whip heart into your hot cocoa and enjoy! I think little Christmas trees or snowmen would be cute as well. The possibilities are endless. Have fun with it!

City Lips Lip Plumper Review & Giveaway!

I recently had the opportunity to review the City Lips Advanced Formula in Clear over a 3 week period. I want to start out by saying that I have very little lips. There's not much of that sexy pout that I so long for, so I'm always on the lookout for products that not only claim they will make my lips appear fuller, but will actually plump them up as well! 
What I found with most "lip plumpers" is that they just stick irritating ingredients like cinnamon or menthol in their products. While those products would swell and redden my lips up temporarily, there was no lasting effect. I wanted to find something that would make my lips fuller without needles (eeeekkkk!!!!)
So naturally, when I was introduced to City Lips Lip Plumpers, I was curious and skeptical but excited to try it out! I was given 1 full tube of the Advanced Formula in Clear, and I was also given 2 mini lip plumpers in their Original Formula in Clear and their new gorgeous Plum Springs.
I used the Advanced Formula everyday for 3 weeks, and as you can see from my results above, there definitely is an increase in fullness. Even after only 10 minutes of use, my lips were instantly fuller. I also love how thick and long lasting their formula is. It stays on all day! 

City Lips prides themselves on that fact that their products contain ingredients that painlessly stimulate your own natural collagen, while also adding "Celadrin®, which
which reduces the breakdown of your newly formed collagen, making your lips fuller for longer and dramatically reducing the lines in and around the lips. CITY Lips Advanced contains the additional benefit of Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Plumping Spheres, which provide incredible moisture and reduce wrinkles, giving your lips an instant plump while making your lips kissably soft and smooth!"
For more info. chick HERE

So what's better than just seeing my results? Why getting these sames results for yourself of course! 
That's right, I'm giving away 2 mini Original Formula lip plumpers in Clear and Plum Springs!!!!!
