Sorry I have been MIA from the blog lately, but I’ve been busy. I just finished up my training to become a Pilates instructor which was a beast, to put it mildly. I teach at Club Pilates in Cahaba Heights on Monday mornings, Thursday afternoons and every other Sunday. Come see me.
I have several blog posts planned for the coming months. Later this week I’ll be posting 5 Fashion Must Haves for the Fall. I’ve also been working as the GC on our master bathroom remodel and it ever gets finished I’ll be posting a blog on it. Not that I am recommending myself to be anyone’s general contractor. I also got Fraxel on my face, neck and chest from Seiler Skin yesterday and we shot a video of the entire procedure and talked about and amazing new product line called Alastin. I should have that up in the next month, and Jennifer and I have several shoots planned for recipes and product reviews so stay tuned.
Today’s post has been a long time in the making. Last winter Deborah Stone reached out to me about her new skincare line Botaniko (read the original post here) and gave me a pot of her lip balm. I was in love with it and every time I wore it people commented and asked me what type of lipgloss I was wearing. My hairdresser became obsessed with it and claims it to be the best lip balm ever! I talked to a couple of my friends who were also ambassadors for Botaniko and everyone was in agreement. Deborah’s lip balm was the best! I find it superior to every lip balm I have blogged about in the past including Jo Malone’s Vitamin E Lip Conditioner, Dior’s Crème de Rose Lip Balm and Beauty Counter’s Peppermint Conditioner. The reason I have waited this long to tell you about it is because for several months Botaniko could not obtain the medical grade lanolin that made the lip balm so awesome. But now they are back in business with the original formula and you should try it for yourself. It is all natural and free of any of the junk (i.e. parabens, fragrance etc.) that you find in other lip balms out there. And while you’re at it, you should totally check out her Lightening Cream Cleanser and Papaya Enzyme Mask. Two of my favorites!
