Quack Quack


I woke up this morning to two ducks waddling across the front yard. Seriously, just walking around minding their own business. While I come from a small town, it's far from the country. It got me thinking, Easter is almost here, and I've got egg decorating on the brain. For some twenty odd years, there has been a long standing tradition among friends, to create the most fabulous, outlandish, wicked Easter egg ever done. This is a creative group, a take no prisoners contest. Anything and everything goes, from ornate to jeweled to real life looking egg people to TV's aliens. It's competitive and hilarious fun. We all used to be in the same city sitting around a table laughing, but sadly that is no longer true. Facebook allows us to carry on the wacky tradition. When I came across Eos, the fabulous, all natural skincare line, I had to chuckle. The cute sphere packaging reminded me of an egg! Packed with shea butter, anti-oxidants, and vitamins C and E, the lotion feels smooth and silky, not sticky. It's hypoallergenic and doesn't irritate the skin. The lip balm is to die for! I've even spotted pics of Rachel Evan Wood posing with her Eos Lip Balm and a couple of Backstreet Boys, too. Hey, guys need to stay hydrated.
"Eos lip balm is 95% organic, 100% natural, and paraben and petrolatum free. Packed with antioxidant-rich vitamin E, soothing shea butter and jojoba oil, EOS keeps your lips moist, soft and sensationally smooth." It comes in fruity flavors like summer fruit, lemon drop SPF 15, honeysuckle honeydew and sweet mint. Best of all you can get it at your local drugstore. It won't cost you an arm and a leg, or an egg.
