Lips, Lips, Lips
The blast of winter has crippled the east coast and Midwest in 2015 with a crushing blow of snow. Snow, wind, and cold have shaped the landscape into a winter wonderland sometimes pretty and after awhile a place of tremendous bone chilling temperatures with mountains of white. To keep warm, ladies and gents are bundled up in coats, scarves, hats, boots and gloves. Yet, what about the face and the ever so lush lips that are not protected from the fierce storms? The face is left viewing the frozen land while marching forth with a head down towards a warm destination.
"I believe in manicures. I believe in overdressing. I believe in primping at leisure and wearing lipstick. I believe in pink. I believe happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe that tomorrow is another day, and... I believe in miracles."
- Audrey Hepburn
