This is a paid post by Carmex.
I was working on Blake’s little “Valentine’s Day’ basket the other day while she was sleeping, so I thought. *Face Palm* – I left it on the coffee table and ran into the other room to grab something, then got distracted with a work email and well…ended up in there for probably 10 minutes. When I walked back into the living room, there she was, all the little toys had been opened, the Carmex trash everywhere and well…ya know, typical toddler things. I took a deep breath then said, “Blake – you’re supposed to be asleep!” to which she responded, “I can’t sleep and this is so much fun” and well, at the point I couldn’t even be mad because she looked too dang cute and called me over to put “makeup” on me (AKA: Carmex).
So long story short – she won’t be getting her gift on actual Valentine’s Day this year, HA! Whoops! Nailed that one. BUT it made for actually a really cute little Mommy and me time and honestly, at the end of the day it was worth it. I’m trying really hard to just be more relaxed and live more in the moment and that was the perfect little tester for me. I’m usually that Mom that is like – AHHHH, don’t touch! Yep, crazy Mom over here, but guys, I’m friggin’ proud of myself. 😉 SO basically, you should all be giving me around of applause right now and I expect insta-stories of you doing so 😉
Side note though – HAVE YOU TRIED THE CARMEX DAILY CARE: STRAWBERRY?! Because it might possibly change your life, actually it will. I’m kind of already a Carmex freak, like have three of the little classic jars in my car, plus a tube and the stick – basically a Carmex Hoarder. BUT now that I’ve tried this Strawberry one, oh my gosh you guys, stocking up on all the things. Plus, it’s seriously perfect for V-day if I do say so myself. 😉
Carmex sent me the cutest little package with the Carmex Classic Lip Balm in a Jar (you know the little baby jars with the classic tingle when you put it on ;)), the tube kind that’s just super easy to put on and menthol-ly and leaves your lips feeling like butta? Yeah, that one. The balm sticks, which are just super convenient for on the go and they have SPF in them. Then their Daily Care Moisturizing Lip Balm – which I’ll be honest, I had never tried until they sent it. BUT I’M HOOKED. Basically, just gimme all the Carmex. But this one has the same great SPF 15 in it, delicious flavor (STRAWBERRY PEOPLE, STRAWBERRY) and just good for everyday use. It also comes in other flavors like, fresh cherry, wintergreen, winter mint and tropical colida – but strawberry is the go to, especially right now with V-day.
So moral of today’s blog post, buy all the Carmex – especially the Daily Care in Strawberry for your people for v-day; husbands, baby daddy’s, babies, sisters, all the people – and probably don’t just leave your kid’s v-day present out without making sure they’re ACTUALLY asleep. I wish I could say rooky mistake, but I mean guys she’s almost three, I should have this crap figured out by now. WHOOPS.
