Ode to Chapstick.

I really love chapstick.  I have for a long time.  My love for chapstick has been longlasting and evident in my life.  In high school, this was my chapstick of choice.  I think I had someone “will” it to me in those senior will things.  This and green extra gum were about my favorite things.  I am over my love for gum.

Burt's Beeswax Lip Balm

I found that Burt’s was hard to open.  So I moved on.  But not that long ago.  I had a long love affair with Burt’s.

Now I have a few favorites. Sephora carries Rosebud Salve and keeps it close to the register where you just have to buy some when you walk by.  I keep this in my purse and at my desk.  It is a little glossy.  Plus, the vintage look is sort of cool.  Warning: the summer heat or pockets don’t do well with this chapstick.

Rosebud Salve

Kheil’s–the pot, not the tube.  The tube oozes when it is hot.  Nordstrom carries the pot.  I keep this by the bed and a million other places.

Kiehl's lip pot

This one–Palmer’s–is the size of a glue stick.  Scott keeps this in his pocket and often gets asked if he is gluing his lips shut.  I keep it in my car.  It is the most efficient way to cover your lips fast.  I don’t know why that is important, but one can’t argue against efficiency!

Palmer's Cocoa Butter

There are few times that I can be found without one of these within reach.  One cannot underestimate the value of well moisturized lips.

In other news: We close on Monday on the house!  AND I have a friend getting married today–and it isn’t even an April Fool’s joke.  I can’t wait to celebrate with her but I have to wait until they have a party in a few months.  She is one of my most favorite people and I so respect her decision to have a wedding with she, her main squeeze, the minister and a photographer.  That. is. it.  But I do wish I was able to be a fly near by.
