Just Call Me Amy Winehouse

I, too, am an addict.

My name is Toni.

And. I. Am. A. Lip. Balm. Addict.

I am.

I must have something on my lips at all times that is moisture releasing. If my lips feel even the slightest bit dry, I freak out and have to find something to put on them. My preference and most favoritest lip balm is Burt's Bees Beeswax Lip Balm but in a pinch, I will use Chap-Stick.

Like any good addict, I have my stash these $3 lip balms laying all over my house in case of a dry lip emergency. But, of course, there are none to be found anymore because my monster son eats them when I am not looking.

Yes. He. Does.

He eats my minty fresh lip balm and leaves the empty carcass for me to find. Now, I love the kid but messing with a girl's Burt's Beeswax? That may just be a one way ticket to an orphanage for the little man.

You see, I have religiously applied Vaseline, Chap-Stick, even hand lotion (in a pinch) to my lips 'round the clock since I was a tween so it really gets me tweaked to not have my stuff when I need it.

And I do. Need. It.

I cannot bear having chapped or sunburnt or chaffed or dry lips. Nuh-uh. I need them to be soft, supple and moisturized!

At! All! Times!

Excuse me. I must run back to Wal-Mart and buy some more lip balm to hide from my son.

Or he I may die.

I feel your pain. I used to be a carmex girl until I discovered BB.

I love, love, love Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer. I don't like lipstick, but the shimmer has the wonderfulness of Burts Bees balm mixed with a bit a shimmmery lip gloss - it is heaven. I must apply it 6 times a day. So, I understand.

Tone, you have me worried!!! But guess what?!?!?! I FOUND YOUR CAMERA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Hiding in the depths of my steam trunk, um, I mean, purse. It was cohabitating with the partly-eaten Pop-Tarts, Blow-Pops, sunscreen, sunglasses, old mail, pens, gum, nail files, and CHAP-STICK. Ha Ha

My 2 year old eats chapstick too. Blech!! Therefore I have to hide mine and I can never find them.

Have you tried Chicken Poop? It's even BETTER than BB.

At leasts its better than cigarettes :)

Im a former lip balm addict - at the peek spending around £5 (about $10) a week on the stuff. Strangely after having my first i just sort of forgot about it and now use it once every couple of months.

Oh I am right there with you. I said it in my 100 things. I can't live without my ChapStick!
