If you haven't noticed by all the lip balm posts I've been posting its lip balm season! This us about the time I put away my everyday lipstick and wear lip balm during the day. Don't get me wrong I still wear lipstick, just not to school anymore.

I bought my first tin of Smith's lip balm at least 2 years ago. So the fact that I did repurchase I want to say now that I do love this product. Here's why:
Pros
  • Minty, tingly feeling left behind
  • Slight pink gloss tint left on lips
  • Keeps lips chap-free AND soft
  • smells yummy, taste okay.


Cons
  • Low melting point can lead to mess


VERDICT: I may be bias but I do love this lip balm. It's great, and just wonderful. It is a bit pricy for a lip balm about $7 for a tint. It's worth every penny though. I strong suggest you buy it to try it out!

Valentines Gift Idea for your Boyfriend/Fiancé/Husband

Affiliated links. 

I was never really a Valentine's Day mush. It was the holiday that I got chocolate and a gift if I had a boyfriend at the time. When I started dating Mr. J everything changed. I got into the holiday a bit more. I had fun thinking of a way to surprise him and make him smile.

I am all about giving a gift that has meaning. Not something that is just a shiny object. Here are some tips to find the perfect gift for your guy.

Note: I am linking the pictures to the sites where I found the images from for my examples  There photos do not belong to me, nor were taken by me. 
  1. Does he like sports? Does he have a favorite sport team?

    •  If so you could get him a shirt or a team jersey. 
    • Get an item with their logo on it. Such as bag, or phone case or reusable water bottle.
  1. Is he a wrestling fan?

    Matching Tag Team Miniature Belts
    • You could get him a mini title belt for his key chain. For example a double team title belt. Or even tickets to see the WWE live when they come to town next.
  3. Does he have a favorite color?
    • You could get him a phone case or shirt in his favorite color. There is nothing wrong with basic items. last minute valentines day gifts, last minute valentines day gifts for him, valentines day gifts for boyfriend, valentines day gifts for fiancé, valentines day gift for husband, valentines day gift, gift idea

  4. Does he like a certain activity?
    • Mr. J LOVES to fish. You could get him fishing supplies.
    •  Or you could turn it into something cute like what I did. I bought this tackle box and filled it with gummy worms, and gummy fish. With the saying on top "I'm hooked on you!"

  5. Does he have a favorite candy or snack?
    • I bought Mr. J his favorite candy last year all red starburst. They love the fact you pay attention and do something thoughtful for them. It shows them you care!

  • Love notes are something not to be over looked. No matter how unmushy your other is he will still appreciate a note filled with why you love him, and how special he makes you feel.
  • Cook something for him!

  • Last year I also made Red Velvet Cupcakes.

  • This year I plan to make him Chocolate Chip Muffins and I plan to tape "Stud Muffin" to the top of it! Silly things make them smile! I bought the container and the cupcake foils at the dollar store! Such a steal! Try to make a different sweet each year to keep him guessing.

Another great idea is book a hotel stay for a little get away - What I also did for Mr. J! I didn't book it for Valentine's Day Weekend. We are staying in Atlantic City for a few nights during restaurant week! We are both super excited for this!

Remember this isn't about who can give the better gift. Valentin's day to me is about showing your love one how much you truly care about them.

Interrupting my normal content for a Valentine Day theme set of posts! I have a fun filled, jam pack with looks and gift ideas! That's last minute gift ideas! Which are easy to do AND super meaningful!

I've been wearing my glasses lately and decided to do this video for a basic makeup look. In my mind basic tends to be a bit better than wild sometimes.
