Awesome Wall

There's this really nice wall downtown that I've been eye-ing for a long time. It's gated off in this abandoned car repair place (I think that's what it was).

A couple weeks ago, I finally got the chance to do something with it! I made Marcio hop the fence with me and we did a little photoshoot.

I Love this wall!

Why can't people paint more buildings like this?
Part of the garage:

Marcio--what a dog. hahaha no, he's quite the opposite actually..

I know I skipped last week, but I've decided that I can only do these on the weeks where I actually post something! (Ps. lip balms/glosses are included, even though it's called "chapstick" of the week!)

This week is the Body Shop's nutmeg and vanilla lip balm.
I received this in a gift set for Christmas. I have to stash chapsticks around the house, so they're always available, and I made the mistake of putting this one in the bathroom for my "after-shower before bed lip stuff." I didn't like it at first because it was kind of sticky.

I gave it a second chance though and realized that it's very much a daytime kind of lip balm. Or a nice touch for something simple and natural-looking for going out at night. It isn't tinted, but has a tiny hint of glitterness, which makes your lips look nice and dewy. It also stays on for a good time without having to reapply, which I really like. I would like to try this in a different flavor sometime.

Thanks to Marcio for the photos!
