#3 A Pop of Mustard - The Volk Boutique

Yes, mustard is on-trend for all of 2019, meaning this shirt can come back out after summer. Notice the fun ruffle details on the sleeves, adding a hint of pizzazz to a classic piece.

#4 Lucious Lips - Essence One

Repair and rejuvenate your lips with the Essence One lip blam. Seriously, this is the ONLY lip balm I will put on my lips. You may think I am being over dramatic, but I honestly swear by this lip balm. With so many chapsticks, using chemicals that not only make you rely on the chap stick but don’t fully repair your lips, I genuinely appreciate how well this product works. With all organic and natural products being used to create this lip balm, I can feel good putting this product onto my lips, while seeing results within a week. Watch your lips go from chapped to luscious with this essential lip balm!
