NYC (& BEYOND): Jasmine(!) Lip Glaze You Can’t Live Without

Okay, okay, this time I've been so horribly remiss in posting that I can't even apologize.  How many times can I abuse you poor LINTERS and then try to offer you flowers?  (Metaphorically speaking, of course.  I don't actually HAVE any flowers for any of you.)

That said, I got too obsessed with the above Korres Lip Butter Glaze not to spread the good word.  First of all, who the heck ever heard of a "Jasmine" flavored lip glaze?  Yes, please!  (It does come in other tints/scents, but why would you want that?)

Second, two words: LIP BUTTER.  I mean, you know how I feel about body butter, people, and lipgloss.  Just think of the the level of euphoria!  It goes on like silk, it STAYS on like heaven and it smells divine.  AND — in these po' ass times — it only costs $14, so you can buy it without guilt.

Which is good.  Because with guilt comes flowers.  And that's just an added expense.

TEXAS (AND BEYOND): THE BEST EXCUSE FOR USING NEWLYWED GAME LINGO LIKE “WHOOPIE”

By Nora Zelevansky / February 11th, 2010

Picture 2

Actually, I take the title of this post back: there's actually no excuse for the word "whoopie."  BUT I am really enjoying the above FarmHouse Fresh "Whoopie" Cream.  Get your mind out of the gutter!

No, but seriously, I can't really explain the name.  BUT you know I was excited when this pretty little glass jar of shea butter lotion arrived at my house because I love all things shea butter and super dense lotions.

Yes, Andre: lotion.  I know.  You're doing a Silence of the Lambs impression as we speak.  Charming.

Anyway, the cream is a brand new product from the Texas based company and it seems to be quite hydrating, just like I like them.

Like Lalicious' Sugar Kiss lotion and Jaqua's Butter Cream body butter (which I LOVE), this smells like a variation on cake batter.  I realize that's not everybody's thing all the time (I mean, what is?), but it can be quite nice, when you're in the mood.  And I do admit that I'm shamelessly charmed by the old fashioned glass jar.  So Anne of Green Gables to me.  Should we go get drunk on cordial?  Is that a thing even?

Anyway, this lotion really doesn't make you want to "make whoopie," but it does make you want to bake a cake.
