Stuff to Stock Those Stockings!

TEXT

Is it too early for me to be talking about stockings? LOL

I don’t think so…..especially when I’m talking about my “Lip Butters”.  I absolutely love these things!

Have you seen my newest flavor?  Nourishing Mint – It has a hint of peppermint and is amazing on your lips!

All of my lip butters have the purest ingredients – Organic Beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E and Essential Oils.

So, here’s the flavors you can choose from:

Plain Jane – Natural

Sweet Feed – Lavender

Rural Bliss – Grapefruit

Nourishing Mint – Peppermint

The neat thing about my lip butters is that they go great under a coat of lipstick.  Apply a few swipes first, then put on your lipstick or lip gloss.

They cost only $3.50 each and literally are like butter on your lips!  This is the perfect time of year when the weather is colder and our lips get chapped.  Grab a few and stick one in each family members stocking!

You can find them locally at BZ’s Happy Plants located at 37439 SR19 in Eustis (between Umatilla and SR44/19).  They may also be shipped anywhere in the US for $1.50.  Please inquire for larger quantities as the S/H will be calculated at the time of order.

I’ve recently found this amazing burger place that I just can’t quit talking about!  It’s not your typical burger joint, like Five Guys or Burger Fi.  It’s way different!  It’s called Square 1 Burgers.  Have you heard of it?

When you walk in, you feel like you’re out west somewhere.  The cool thing is, that it’s a Florida based restaurant with only a few locations.

You can get these bad boys on Wednesdays for only $3.  That’s right! Their beer battered homemade onion rings are the best around and only $3 every Wednesday. Served with their homemade sooner sauce that is amazing!!!

The decor is so inviting.  They have paintings of cows and street signs all of over the place.  I took this photo on the way to the bathroom!

Now, onto the food.  I literally can’t stop talking about this place.  They are reasonably priced and actually, you could share a meal with someone as the portions are huge!  They even offer your burger “green style” aka NO BUN.  Not to mention that you will want to get the fried dill pickles or the baked mac ‘n cheese for an appetizer. LOL

The one that I frequent and that’s closest to me is in The Villages.  Be sure and check them out!

New product – Nourishing Mint Lip Butter

Can you believe that next week is Thanksgiving and starts the craziness on Black Friday?  Where has this year gone?  I say that every year, actually LOL.

WAY

I’m excited to share with you my newest product for the Christmas season – “NOURISHING MINT” Lip Butter!

My lip butters are made with the most yummiest ingredients!  100% Organic Beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E and Peppermint Essential Oil.

This “Nourishing Mint” lip butter will be the perfect thing for your lips this winter.  It will keep them moist and heal any cracking or dryness that comes along with it.

These make great STOCKING STUFFERS TOO!  They cost $3.50 each and $1.50 for S/H.

If you are local in my area, you can purchase my new “Nourishing Mint” Lip Butter along with my other LIP BUTTERS at BZ’s Happy Plants located at 37439 SR19 in Eustis.  (I’ll officially be in her cottage on Wednesday afternoon). It’s actually between Umatilla and Eustis near Dona Vista.  They have gorgeous plants, herbs, trees and so much more to choose from!

You can also find my “Ranch Hands” cream at BZ’s Happy Plants.  It’s perfect for farmers, gardeners, ranchers, construction workers or anyone that’s works with their hands.  It soothes, conditions and restores tired, achy hands.  I use it all the time after I’ve worked outside all day.  My hubby inspired me to make this cream when I kept seeing his palms of his hands with all these calluses.  I knew there was something better that I could make without all the chemicals that would heal his hands.

The cream is $12.00 per jar with $3.00 for S/H or you can buy them locally if you like.  It comes in a 4oz. jar and let me tell you – a little goes a LONG way!!!  I’m serious….you only need to use a smidgen.

The ingredients are 100% Organic Beeswax, Organic Shea Butter, Organic Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Vitamin E, Almond Oil and Lavender and Lemon Essential Oils.  This cream is nothing but amazing!  Your hands will be so soft, just wait and see!

To place an order for either product, please email me at info@littlehousesimpleliving.com and place “Order” in the subject line.

Thanks,

Going to the Chapel and I Do’s

I have been so busy these past two weeks as I’ve been helping both of my nieces, yes, I have TWO nieces that chose to get married not one week apart LOL.  I was so tickled when they both asked me to photograph their weddings!  I also helped both with the decorating and set-up.

My niece, Catie, got married on Saturday, October 25, 2014 in Ocala, FL.  I loved everything about her wedding.  Daisies, burlap, mason jars, hay, and yellow!!!  She had everything organized and ready to go.  Well, let me first tell you though, she married the Pastor’s son LOL.  So, I think that the congregation was more than willing to help her with!
