The home features an enormous patio with an elliptical opening designed to accentuate the view. The old-looking barn in the distance even features an underground tunnel that serves as an entrance into the home.

smith’s rosebud salve

http://i33.tinypic.com/2nurmm1.jpg

have you tried smith’s rosebud salve? i got a tin for my birthday – it smells like roses and flying dreams and puppies and baby powder, not to mention how radical it makes your lips feel

it was formulated in 1892 and contains a secret blend of essential oils & cottonseed oil in a special petrolatum base. an all purpose skin preparation that’s good for relieving chapped lips & skin, diaper rash, blemishes, detergent burns, rough cuticles & softening rough hands.

you can pick it up for R99 at any Melissa’s (it’s really worth it as it lasts forever, i haven’t even made a dent in mine – cute tin is a bonus.) definitely beats 8 hour cream by a mile. get some! and if you’re a dude: get some for your girlfriend, she’ll love you (more).
