I have some free samples of new products that came in the mail, and I really like both of them, and I have extra of each to give away.
ChapStick has a True Shimmer lip balm in several flavors. I’ve tried a couple of the flavors, and they remind me in flavor a lot of the Bonne Belle Lip things, remember those? Nice flavor and smell, and it goes on incredibly smooth. Not sure if the formula is changed with this since they put shimmer in it, but it glides on and gives just a hint of shimmer to your lips, which is reallly perfect for summer. There’s no color at all, which I like a lot more than lip balms with color. Not drying at all, works great and looks great. I do have one extra of these in Peppermint Rush.

Other product is Q-tips Vanity Packs. Gone are those blue and white cartons, and now then have brightly colored, pretty flowered containers so you can leave your Q-tips in the box for your counter. The Q-tips are the same, no changes there, they are still as versatile for mopping up your face as ever (does anyone in the world not use Q-tips or some generic version of them?) but the boxes are so darn cute. I have one extra of these as well. If you’d like to be entered in the drawing for one of them., again, just drop your name in comments.
New perfume discovery that’s old? For me, Kenzo Flower. I’d never smelled this, so I tried some recently, and just wow. It’s so easy to wear. I found online a Kenzo Flower Summer, and I’m just perplexed. Kenzo Flower is summery, how do they get it more summery? Yeah, I’m slow, but I eventually do try everything.
Now I need advice. I’m almost paralyzed in picking paint for my kitchen. I was thinking of going with terra cotta, but decided no because I want to do a bronze/red/gold glass tile backsplash, and that would just be overkill on color. Then I was thinking of a dark celery green, which works and would work with the backsplash, but I have a pale green in there now, and I’m just greened out. Ideas? I’ve toyed with orange and decided no, I’m just sure I’ll get tired of it if it’s all over my walls. I’m thinking of a paint color called Cumin. It’s a medium reddish brown, not really dark, but definitely not light. I want my kitchen to be warm and inviting. Any other thoughts on color? And if you have a specific brand/color or links to kitchen photos that are warm, would love to have that. This painting this is so hard, the color picking. I mean, yikes!
