Why I stopped using EOS chap stick

Why I stopped using  EOS chap stick

Normally, my morning routine consists of moisturizing my face with some herbal oils, brushing teeth, brushing my hair, then putting on chap stick and my makeup. Ever since this cold weather started my lips have been incredibly chapped. Which in turn makes my lips more and more dependent on chap stick - and when I say chap stick I mean those little Eos balls that are so popular - you know what I'm talking about ladies.

This weekend I decided to try an experiment and see what would happen if I stopped using chap stick. I've never liked the idea of being dependent on something, especially if its masking underlying symptoms. I don't even take allergy medication because I don't like being dependent on medicine - that's another story for another post.

Meet Ell.

Ell is such a fun person. Her laugh was contagious and her smile was just absolutely perfect. We had so much fun raiding my style closet and being glam in these beautiful dresses that fit perfectly. They all seemed to work well with Ell's kind and generous spirit.

Meet Blake. 

Blake is a new mother who felt she was struggling with the way she looked after having her baby. So I was there to help her feel like herself again, beautiful and fearless. We had so much fun being glam and being silly. She has the best silly faces. Blake is introverted like me but we quickly became fast friends. It's so funny how that works.
