I don’t used lip balm nearly as often as I should, I’m always that girl with the chapped lips! It’s a lot easier to remember to slick on some lip balm when they’re packaged so beautifully as my latest addition, however… I had seen Smith’s Minted Rose Lip Balm around, the pretty tin always lured me in!

New books are always such a treat; they look pretty, sit nicely and smell delicious! I always hope that I keep my new reads in good condition, but the truth is – I like to take ’em in the bath, carry them round in my bag, read them at the beach, use the pages as bookmarks. It’s a terrible habit, but books are meant to be loved, I say! Two new books have come my way this month, all thanks…
