this ain't no lip smackers

Today my post {started out} short and simple, but of course I like to talk a lot, so never mind the short.

I'm joining up with Things I Love Thursday at The Diaper Diaries and sharing my love for something that just makes the day go a little more smoothly.

OK, I'm obviously exaggerating a bit, but I do love Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer. I meant to add this to my list of favorites on Monday, but I think it deserves its own post anyway.

I have been a fan of the Burt's Bees lip balm for maybe 4 years or so. On a random trip to Target (is there any other kind?) after this last Christmas, I found this lonely lip shimmer on a random shelf marked at 50% off clearance and thought I'd give it a whirl.

Well, gave it a whirl I did, and I now know I can never go back to boring old lip balm or plain jane lip gloss.

I can't go anywhere without my BB lip shimmer. Another perk? I can even fit it in my jeans pocket because it is so slim, and it doesn't bother me like a regular size chapstick or lip gloss.

No, I was not paid to advertise this stuff, but it sure would have been nice to get something out of the deal!


And, this one's for you, Papa...

I sure do love me some cousin cuties!

Cousins - February 18, 2009
(minus one cute 18 month old named Hunter)
of course, do you notice whose kids aren't cooperating this time??

me and the kids went to see my sister and her family this past week and my kids had so much fun with their cousins!

I might have to try this stuff out if it's good enough to earn its own post and everything! Have a good day!

The children are adorable!

I also love Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer. I always buy a few of them and I keep one in my purse. I like them better than lipstick.

I'll have to try BB's lip shimmer... I love the other products!
And so many cuties!

I've tried the Burt's Bees chapstick, but not this...I'll have to remember this one. Thanks!

I love Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer too! I just went to Target to get some yesterday...and they didn't have my color. Very sad day.

See you in TWO weeks. Hooray! Hooray!

I'm a lip balm/lip gloss addict... I might have to try some of this!

My dad actually sent us some of these for Christmas (his wife's daughter gets tons of little items from her job) and the girls and I love them.

Brings back alot of good memories of all our Ankeny cousins times. Our family would either travel to Oregon to hang out with the Oregon cousins (your Mom's family & Harlow's family) or they would all come over to Idaho. I remember several Christmas's when your Mom's family would come over and the fun time that was. Good memories.

I hate having gunk on my lips. I finally found some balm I could stand - Soft Lips. Now I'll have to try the BB stuff so my lips can shimmer whilst I shimmy. ;-)

I love Burt's Bees. I usually use the plain lip balm, but shimmer would be good, so I'll give it a shot.

The kids are adorable! :)

I will have to look for this on my next random trip to Target :) Thanks!
PS - at least your kids are smiling!

Thanks for sharing,Heidi. I can not stand just regular ole chapstick. So I might just try some of this. I've been using medicated Blistex for chapped lips in the winter.

I really like this stuff too. It is nice to have a little color with your chapstick.
