Real Maine Weddings is a wonderful resource for brides and grooms who are getting married in Maine, and I’m excited to share that I was profiled by them last Friday!  The editor, Melanie, asked me a lot of questions about how I shoot a wedding day and how I run my business and it’s a quick resource to help brides and grooms determine if we’re the perfect fit.  Stop by Real Maine Weddings and read the full profile/interview here.  Thank you Melanie and Real Maine Weddings!

(Day 15/30 of the 30 day blog challenge. Read more about it here!)

Guess what, everyone?  I’m half way through my blog challenge!  Boy, that went surprisingly fast.  So far it’s been relatively easygoing– I thought I would be stressing out over what to blog about each day, but I’ve had a lot of fun with the whole project.

To celebrate managing to get halfway through the 30 day blog challenge, I thought I’d share with you all one of my favorite products… and give a few of them away!

A photo of eos lip balm

I discovered eos (evolution of smooth) lip balm in 2009.  I’ve always loved lip balm, and may have been addicted to the stuff during high school and college.  Did you know, by the way, that there are people that are addicted to lip balm?  It’s true!  But, I don’t think I was ever actually addicted– I just happened to have 20 tubes all over the place, just if I needed a quick application.  Cough.

What’s really cool about this lip balm is that it’s shaped like a sphere.  But, it applies just like a lip balm in a tube– you just spread it over your lips.  It’s pretty fantastic– it glides on smoothly and is moderately thick.  I swear, they have made my lips softer, and they’re rarely chapped, which I chalk up to eos.  And, the flavors are to die for.  Seriously, if you haven’t tried eos lip balm yet, you need to (and this is coming from a gal who doesn’t endorse much!)

Here’s the deal– I want to give one reader three of these little spheres so that they can see how awesome this lip balm really is.  You can choose between sweet mint (probably my favorite), summer fruit (both pictured above), lemon drop and tangerine.  Leave a comment on this post and tell me which 3 of the 4 flavors you would pick if you were chosen.  I’ll randomly draw for names on Wednesday, May 2nd.  The winner will have to be located in the continental US.

Looking forward to mailing some of these out!
