A Little Vacation

eos: Lemon Drop SPF 15 Lip Balm Smooth Sphere & 24-Hour Moisturizing Shave Cream

Products provided to me for this review from eos.  All opinions are my own.


I love these crazy good little spheres of lip balm by eos.  The mint is my absolute favorite.  I just don't know how I would live without it, but when I want some SPF action, I grab this bad boy.  The Lemon Drop SPF 15 Lip Balm protects my lips from the sun while providing mega moisture.  This is packed with natural conditioning oils and antioxidant-rich vitamin E.  Plus, it's gluten-free, PABA-free, petrolatum and paraben-free.  That's my kind of lip balm!


Now when I'm in the shower, I start craving sweets, candy and yummy treats thanks to the Vanilla Bliss Shave Cream!  This stuff smells good enough to eat, folks.  This contains natural conditioning oils, shea butter and vitamins C and E.  Your skin will feel smooth and soft for a full 24 hours.  Whether you shave wet or dry, this paraben-free formula helps provide a close shave without those annoying little razor bumps.

FLOR: 6 Modular Carpet Tiles of your choice {Giveaway}

Complimentary product provided for this review from FLOR.  All opinions are my own.


Now that's one gorgeous rug!  

I'm proud to say that I own these beautiful Chenille Charade modular carpet tiles from FLOR.  What are modular carpet squares you ask?!  Let me explain.  They're genius if you ask me.  


FLOR offers an innovative system of carpet squares that you assemble to create custom runners, rugs, or wall-to-wall designs.  Use their patented FLORdot adhesives to connect your squares together and not to your floor.  The process is so easy.  I had my rug completed in no time.

These carpet squares are made for real life.  They stand up to pets, kids and spills.  However, should something happen to a square, just remove and replace.  What mom doesn't love the sound of that?!


I received the Chenille Charade pattern in the color Frost.  It's a beautiful grey tone that will compliment many decor styles.  This pattern is available in six different colors - frost, azure, kiwi, maize, tangerine and persimmon.

Each tile measures 19.7 in. x 19.7 in.


Installation was a breeze thanks to the handy arrows on the back of each tile.  However, I don't think I actually needed to follow the arrows for this particular pattern as it is not meant to align.  

The arrows can help with straight installations like this one below.  Pattern shown is Parallel Reality.  


The arrows can also help you arrange your tiles in a parquet style (quarter turn).  Pattern shown is Lacebark.


Here is my finished rug that measures 5x7 (12 tiles total).  


FLOR tiles stand up to heavy traffic and are made from 100% recycled face fibers.

Samples are available to order.

Watch how easy it is to assemble and install FLOR tiles!


Giveaway Time:  FLOR is offering one lucky reader six carpet tiles in the pattern of their choice!
