Every season has it's fabulous shades...and Spring is one of my faves! Bright corals, flashy fushias, and pretty pinks are the lip shades I am searching for to fill my clutches this season. The best thing about a pretty pout is that it can really make your outfit pop, even if your outfit is as simple as a pair of jeans and a tank. Some of you may like to play it safe when it comes to lip stick or lip gloss, but I encourage you to give at least one of these a shot... you might be pleasantly surprised and your lips will probably thank you because the majority of these formulas are weight-less...now how cool is that?

I have the PERFECT solution for you: Aquaphor Advanced Therapy Healing Ointment

What's really great about this product is that it's multi-functional [& CHEAP!]. This product can be used on your lips of course, but also on any other dry spots you may have. Slather it on your chapped lips, rub them together, and glide on your favorite lip color and voila! Problem solved and your lips will feel mag-nificent! I have one in my purse at all times & the other on my night stand...I'm hooked!
*SPEAKING OF MULTI-FUNCTIONAL...
I think this is the PERFECT opportunity to bring in the LONGCHAMP Le Pliage Tote Bag
Where do I even begin? I recently became a HUGE fan of these bags [I have the medium style in Citrine & I'm LOVING it] and I'm already wanting more! "Pliage" stands for "folding" in French, and the bag comes folded up. It's the coolest thing! The bag not only holds EVERYTHING I need, but it's the easiest material to clean and it's completely light weight! Perfect travel bag, if I do say so myself! When you're not using the bag, just fold it up and snap the buttons and you can easily tuck it away in your closet, just like a book! The prices range from as low as $98 to over $200 and there are all sorts of sizes and colors to choose from.
*LONGCHAMP/JEREMY SCOTT COLLABORATION*
Famed runway designer [& one of my FAVES], Jeremy Scott, started his collaboration with LONGCHAMP in fall/winter 2009 and you can still get his bags. THEY ARE ROCKIN'! The bag below, featuring bones, is a spitting image from his Flintstones inspired runway show.
Here are some of his other styles...the phone bag is ah-mazing :]
