Yes to Carrots New Lip Items

My beloved Yes to Carrots recently released a couple new lip items:

Yes to Carrots Sweet Fig Lip Butter with SPF 15, $3.49


 Yes to Blueberries Line Reducing Lip Treatment, $9.99

I am super interested in the Sweet Fig Lip Butter, but I've been (mostly) sticking with my "no buy" on lip balm and actually set this one back down when I encountered it at my local Walgreens. I have had my weak moments, though...I'll blog about that later ;)

Once or twice before I've mentioned on the blog that I'm a student - I'm studying Interior Architecture and Design and hope to be an Interior Designer one day! I stumbled across the gorgeous Malachite wallpaper by Cole & Son  while working on a project and it inspired the little collection of beauty products below. It was pretty fun to merge by love of beauty and interior design. I might try this again in the future!

For those who don't know, malachite is a green mineral that develops beautiful ringed patterns. It has been used for centuries as a green pigment, but it also has antioxidant benefits and is used in many skin care products. Trivia for the day :) Hope you enjoy!

Deborah Lippman S/S 2012 Nail Polish in Mermaid's Dream

A few years ago Deborah Lippman starting taking the nail world by storm with her beautifully-mixed glitter polishes. This season she continues to impress with Mermaid's Dream, a sea-green polish chock-full of green, gold, aqua, and royal blue glitter. At $18 a pop it's not cheap, but it's everything I want for my next vacation pedi!

Check out swatches at Nails and Noms, ommorphia beauty bar, and many other blogs. This polish seems to be a spring/summer must-have for many, so swatches and reviews should be easy to find :)

Hope everyone is having a good weekend! Only 9 days until the official start of spring, and 101 days until the start of summer (On this gray day in the bay, I seriously cannot wait).
