Top 2 Tuesday

Top 2 Tuesday topic: Things you can't live without.

Now, this does not include family, friends, etc. Just two things that you really don't think that you can live without. And I know I wouldn't survive without the two things below...

1. Burt's Bees Chapstick.
I honestly use chapstick so much that I have to have one everywhere: the bathroom drawer, the family room table, my nightstand next to my bed, my purse, my office drawer.... you get the picture.


2. Aveeno lotion with Cooling Menthol.
I discovered this lotion in college and I don't know how I survived 18 years without it. Because I played soccer year-round from the time I was 4, the skin on my shins {from wearing shin guards, constantly} was very sensitive and itchy. Yuck. I went to dermatologist after dermatologist and they kept prescribing me all these creams and lotions and NOTHING worked. Finally, I went to one and she said "have you tried Aveeno yet?" I need to go back and thank that woman.

Ever since that day, I've been a walking ad for Aveeno and have pretty much converted most of my friends and family. I really need to get a job for them. Or at least buy stock.

I LOVE Burt's Bees chapstick and think I have one in every bag, car, drawer, my desk at work, my nightstand, etc... And Aveeno baby products are all we use, O's skin is so soft that even our pediatrician commented on it and asked what we were using!

It's so tough - I need me some chapstick at all times too!

I'm an Aveeno fan too. I have severe dry skin and excema so I use their oatmeal bath from time to time to stop the itching in the winter. It works wonders. I also use the Aveeno baby products. Good stuff!

The one thing I can't live w/o is my iphone. Seriously, I'm addicted.

I hear only good things about Burts Bees, and I would totally try it...if I could break away from my carmex, that is.
