so i've been feverishly writing all weekend and i've found there are two things that keep me going whilst chained to my desk: MUSIC and korres lip butter.
my poor lips have been going through a lot recently thanks to lengthy dental visits, the mercurial dc weather and a recent cold sore, so i found myself not only needing to moisturize but exfoliate as well.
luckily, i recently picked up korres's lemon lip scrub during one of their many wonderful sales. i like that its packaged like a lipstick (avoids germy messes in pots) and only smells slightly lemony. apply to lips, rub, blot with a tissue and then follow with lip butter.
for those of you that don't know, korres lip butter and i are in a deeply committed relationship (though that doesn't stop me from whoring it out to my friends!) my favorite is guava for standard hydrating purposes, but it does cast white, so i reach for quince, a pink tinted version for school days.
i also just picked up the lip saver roll (3 lip butters!) to try and get myself to branch out into the other colors.
one lip butter usually runs $9, but the lip saver roll is $19! that's like, two lip butters and a bonus free one!
and for those of you who aren't familiar with korres, they always offer tons of amazing discounts on their website - the current ones are 30% + free shipping on orders over $35 with code TEMPTALIA (valid until 12/31) or spend $50 and get a 4 piece wild rose skincare set with code WILDROSE - the site says limited time offer, so i don't know how long it runs for. i love the quercetin and oak skincare line and am sure that wild rose is equally amazing so either promo is a great deal!
and now for something completely different!
here's the newest video for keeping on without you from one of my all-time favorite bands, this providence. its heartbreaking - i actually cried the first time i watched it! TP has been keeping me company during finals seasons since 2004 so i have to give them love - pick up their new album, who are you now? i promise you will not be disappointed!
