Today LBW Turns Two!

Happy Birthday to this little blog of mine! I cannot believe that today marks the second year of me blogging about lip balm. I'm sorry for the lack of reviews this week, I'll promise to make up for it tomorrow.

I have so many things I want to do with this blog in the next year. I thought that I would share some of my dreams for this blog with you:
-Continue posting at least six times a week
-Make at least six vlogs this year (I know I kept talking about one over the summer, but with all the chaos that happened and our sudden move to Seattle, it just wasn't a priority)
-Take better product pictures as well as better product swatches
-Start incorporating some other products into my reviews now that I have actually started using different products
-Host at least 6 giveaways this year
-These ones are a stretch, but I think it would be really neat to meet one of my favorite artisans and watch them do their craft OR to visit the headquarters of one of the bigger lip balm companies

To start on one of these goals, I have a giveaway for you today!

Last year I hosted a huge giveaway for my blog turning one and this year I'd like to do the same! This year I'm giving away: 1 tube of Long Winter Farm's Peppermint Hot Cocoa, 6 tubes of lip balm from Aqua Blossom along with a lip butter pot, 3 tubes of ChapStick's MixStixx (one of each flavor), and a $25 Etsy Giftcard

One lucky person will win all of the above!! This giveaway will run for 2 weeks and the winner will be announced shortly after. This giveaway is only open to U.S. residents, sorry!!
a Rafflecopter giveaway

Good luck to everyone who enters! And thank you ALL for your constant support over the last two years!
xoxo,
Christina

  2. I love reading all your reviews but I would like to see more reviews about different lip balm companies instead of a lot of the same shops.

  6. Congratulations. I like how you review smaller etsy shops. I only use vegan balms, and it would neat to feature some more of them. I shared my favourite ones here: http://tastespace.wordpress.com/2013/03/02/the-best-vegan-lip-balms/
    (not sure which ones are new to you)

  7. Two! How fun! You have helped me pick some fabulous flavours of balm from some really great shops!!! Thank you!

    I think it would be fun to see comparisons of flavours between shops. Like, what you think is the best peppermint balm and why, etc. Or if you have certain preferences of balms for bedtime vs during the day vs underneath lipstick vs in cold weather vs dry weather, etc.

  17. I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog because it led me to Long Winter Farm which I was super excited about because I only live about an hour from where she is located, and I live buying local, handmade products!!! I am also very happy to have found For Goodness Grape. They both have awesome lip balms as well as other wonderul products! My favorite balms so far are Long Winter Farm's Peppermint Hot Cocoa and For Goodness Grape's Chill Pill. I have another huge order coming from For Goodness Grape soon. Lisa just had an awesome end of the year sale, and I got tons of stuff!!! I can't wait to place another order for Long Winter Farm, too. There are so many other companies I want to try since finding your blog. I am also about to place an order with Epically Epic Soaps. Sorry for such a long post... I just love these awesome lip balms!!! :-)

  22. I am a huge Softlips fan and I think it'd be cool to have a review of their newest lip balm, intense moisture, I found a double pack in Target. Your blog has opened me to lip balms I didn't know were out there; keep up the great blog :) happy 2nd birthday to your blog, 2 years already.

  26. Hi! I surfed onto your site from Epically Epic Soap's blog since you're her top reviewer. I'm a repeat customer of hers and I love her textures and all the scent/flavor choices. Happy New Year to you!!

  27. I've been a long-time reader and can't believe it's been two years already! I've been able to cut back on lip balms and will try to continue doing so. But my favorite lip balm will always be Long Winter Farm. My top three scents/flavors are probably Yeti Breath, Peppermint Hot Cocoa, and Strawberry Jam. At least until another favorite crosses my path! And congrats on the blog's birthday!
