Dear Mother Nature,
I would really appreciate it if you could inhale at least 92% of the snow that you’ve so graciously blown out of your bosom for the past few days.
I’d really like to leave my house at some point this weekend and not go on a wannabe carnival ride trying to navigate my way down my driveway (which is most accessible by ice skates right now.) Backing out of my garage today gave me an insight on what it’s like to be in a demolition derby…on ice. Needless to say I got my running around done (grocery shopping, what what!) and managed to slide my way back home into my cozy sweatpants and slippers.
Sure, the snow is beautiful, but it kind of activates that “pause” button on everyday life, which definitely isn’t always a bad thing. I’ve actually gotten a lot done today that I wouldn’t have had it’d been clear. Productive things such as giving my dog a bath, making vlogs and cleaning up after my annual blunder with the blender. We’re talking weekly messes now. I can’t seem to make a smoothie without throwing it all over the kitchen. Cara tries to help me clean it up but her weenie dog tongue is just no match for Meg-sized messes.
She gets jiggy after getting a bath because she knows she’s gonna get a treat. Who am I kidding, though, the dog gets a treat for looking cute.
Besides making a heinous mess out of my kitchen and bathtub (don’t worry, it’s all clean now) I also made a vlog of my favorite lip products and here’s some tips on how to keep your lips sweeeeet and kissable in the winter.
Just like your skin, lips need moisture from the inside out, not just through lip products. Some of my favorite skin and lip-friendly foods include healthy fats and proteins like nut butters, chicken, healthy oils and fish. Fish especially, since they contain high levels of omega-3 fatty acids which help in cell renewal. Vitamins like beta carotene from sweet potato and other veggies help provide nutrients to skin and lips and water in those veggies delivers the nutrients. You should be getting a good amount of water intake from the foods you eat, not just the water you drink. Water helps the nutrients absorb more efficiently.
One of my favorite snacks which provides all them shenanigans:
Paired with some spaghetti squash and Frank’s. My fave.
And here’s a few of my favorite lip products right now:
Hope you all are staying toasty and attempting to enjoy all the snow! I’m off to wrestle with the crazy wiener running around my house trying to dry off.
What are some of YOUR favorite lip products?
What’s your favorite brand of hot sauce?
Peace and love!
