Favourite things!

So I thought that I would start a new section of posts, maybe monthly or whenever I am really loving something, about some of my favourite things.  It will be a bit of fun for me, and maybe we will even find we have a few things in common :)  For my first post I decided that I needed to pick something that I LOVE and can’t live without.  Lip chap!!  Well its not so much that I love it, more that I’m totally addicted to it, and have been for years.  My sister is the same.  I think even worse than me if you were to judge based on the number of tubes in our possession.  I need to always have one on or near me, and have even had to stop to buy one if I forget.  I’ve tried to justify this to Sam for years, but he just doesn’t get it, and the random tubes around the house drive him nuts.  I try to explain how it’s not my fault, I NEED them all, but he just laughs and says I better not pass the habit on to our kids…..a bit late I think, Kieran loves getting into them. hehe ooops.  So here is a picture of all the lip chaps I have, happily much fewer than I thought.  But remember this is not including lip sticks and glosses….  Ohh and I’ve also tried to switch to only natural ones since I figure I ingest enough each year that it’s probably a good idea.  But I can’t quit give up classics like “cherry”, and a new favourite “cookie time”.  If you feel my pain, or have any favourite flavours of your own feel free to post about them in the comment section!

I’m a strawberry girl myself! I’m not as committed to the cause as you are, but I’ll have your back! From one purple dinosaur hater to another, we must stick together!!

Really is that all you have? Check all your pockets!
I did a quick check of our appartment – 20! I’m sure I have at lest 1 in each car so add in two more and there are at least 5 on my desk a work! Lip Chap is a part of me,,,,,as my husband says it not lip chap – you guys made that up…..
None the less he has learnt to check my pockets for tissue and lip chap before my hoodies go in the wash!
I too have tried to cut back on the artifical flavours but have a weakness for cherry lypsyl…..oh and my cookie time -i put that on in the morning before i leave for work…this one is used lightly as it was imported to Canada for me by my lovley partner in lip chap crime – Shari!!
Love you picture!

This post made me smile. I think I’ve found some kindred spirits in you and your sister! I, too, am addicted to lip balm and have been for a long time! As Andrea commented, it’s a part of me! Just for fun I rounded them all up. I found 22 but I am sure there are more. I don’t have a favorite but I do feel a little lost if I realize I don’t have any lip balm with me. Your “favorite things” got me thinking about things I love. I decided to pull out my own camera and capture some of them. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hahaha I love it! 22, that’s not so bad, worse than me :) I’m glad you enjoyed the post, and thanks for the kind words
