When my two daughters were small, we started to celebrate every holiday. July 4th, Easter AND Passover , Washington’s Birthday, even Labor Day had some ceremony and food attched to it. But for my two girlie girls, nothing beat Valentines Day. Each year Feb 14 triggered a flood of homemade valentines, little pink socks, puffy red hair bows and of course cookies and cupckakes covered with hearts. While my daughters grew up and now have little girls of their own, I still give out little Valentine themed gifts to special people in my life. Although I guess the original idea was a day to celebrate romantic love, today its a great time to show friends and family how much I value them.
Last year when research showed the health benefits of chocolate, I gave out a little red heart shaped box of candy. I recently was sent a sample of the cutest little pot of lip gloss which has become my current Valentines Day “I love you” gift to my posse. Vaseline Lip Therapy Rosy Lips is a pink tinted gel that actually tastes as good as it looks. Although my lips get uber dry in winter I usualy don’t like the taste, fragrance or texture of most lip soothers. Rosy Lips feels so light, tastes so good and looks so pretty, I keep it my coat pocket so that its ready when I need it. It comes on a card, but I took it out of the package and dropped the cute little jar into a small, red ribbon tie bag. Nice. At $2.50 a jar, its a great addition to my beauty tool kit and a charming, affordable answer to everyday chapped lips.
Turns out that Rosy Lips has been sold for awhile in the UK in a small metal tin. Its very popular in the US and I had to go to three pharmacies to round up enough to hand out on Feb 14. If you miss Valentines Day, there is still penty of winter left to use this little pot of lip gloss.
