Usually when I think of pink, I think fabulously flirty frou-frou! Well, pink can have its practical side. The Rosebud Salve pictured here was one of my mother's favorite remedies for chapped lips or any skin blemish. It works! Last evening when I came home in below freezing weather with gusts of wind sending the chill to the bone, I reached for this familiar little tin to keep my lips from chapping. This morning...not one sign of the cold wind's touch! I noticed last night that the tin is almost empty. So, I checked online today thinking that Rosebud Salve might be hard to find. Not so! Of all places, it can be ordered from one of my favorite sites, The Victorian Trading Company. A girl can never go wrong with anything that is pink AND practical! When it's pink with a purpose, no need to apologize for indulging! With that in mind, here are three other pink needfuls that I added to my order, which is totally unlike me. But, I couldn't resist! The Brambleberry Rose Balm can be placed on pulse points as a "cologne," or used on the lips. It's infused with "delightful fragrance." The "Cotton Candy" lip gloss is going be awesome. The tin can later double as a pill box! Then, the pretty pink shower cap was kind of an after Christmas treat for myself. Who says pink is just frou-frou???
