Expert Advice?

Sweater: GAP (old, love this one), Tee: GAP, Shorts: JCrew, Shoes: Sanuk, Shades: Ray Ban
After looking at this picture, I realize just how badly I need some color on my lips.  However, I have a chronic dry lip problem and I've found that anything with paraben in it makes my lips break out.  Assuming I have an allergy, I stick to all natural chapsticks and vaseline.  I'm not beauty expert so I ask:
Are there any great all natural lip sticks/colors out there?  Help!

Last weekend was absolutely gorgeous and it made me extremely excited about spring/summer moving in and fall moving out.  Don't get me wrong, I love the layered looks of fall, but after discovering these chino shorts at JCrew I think my whole opinion of shorts (on me) has changed.  Therefore, bring it on warm weather!

I have to confess that I only own 2 pairs of shorts.  Prior to buying this pair on vacation, I had one!  I'm just not a shorts girl.  I've never felt like they look good on me.  Now, I love me a pair of Nike running shorts, but a nice pair of shorts?  I just never wear them.  This is the second time in a week I've worn these so I can confidently say, they've changed my mind.  Do you like shorts?

  2. I like short but I have a hard time finding ones that make me look good and are in style. Having such large thighs from playing sports and then not playing sports it's a challenge... plus i'm style challenged. :)

  3. I LOVE the green shorts. I've been looking for a pair that I like that looks good on me for-freaking-ever. I think you look amazing. As for the lip balms...have you tried burts bees colored selection? Or does it have the paraben in it? I'm allergic to cocoa butter. So I know what it's like to have to check every beauty product.

  4. I'm the same way with shorts! I have maybe 3 pairs of real shorts but at least 6 pairs of Nike shorts! haha

  5. I love FRESH lip treatments. They are a little pricey, but they last FOREVER- seriously, I've had one for nearly three years. So soothing and beautiful color.

    I use the plum and loved it

  6. I tried these on yesterday! Love them on you! I'm not a shorts girl either. I only own Nike shorts. I thought the same thing about the jcrew ones yesterday definitely need to decide on a color. I'm so crazy!

  7. I think around here more people opt for Nike running shorts than any other kind of shorts so you would fit right in! :)

  9. Love the color of your shorts!! You should try out Revlon lip butter. It gives a lot of moisture and color to your lips at the same time.
