My lip Stuff Giveaway

My Lip Stuff began many years ago, back in 1999 as a hobby. My name is Brea, I'm the creator of My Lip Stuff (feel free to call me the lip balm goddess, lippy lord, or your royal Breaness works too). I decided to make my own lip balms after watching an episode of Martha Stewart about hand made lotions and toiletries. Being a Vegan, I knew 'natural' was the product for me, so I began to research natural butters and oils to find the perfect ingredients for the perfect lip balm. After many many many many many (did I say many?) recipes, I finally came up with a recipe that I fell in love with and "My Lip Stuff" was born. It started with just personal use (a lip balm addict from birth with a nasty tube a week (at least) habit), and eventually moved onto Birthday and Christmas gifts. By 2000, friends and family were loving "My Lip Stuff" and it was turning into a mini word of mouth business. 
In 2001, I was in the beginning of a very difficult 'bed rest only' pregnancy and was unable to work (I was formerly a foreign and english languages teacher). As I lay there, I thought about developing My Lip Stuff into more than just a small business with only lip products, and into a full fledged business with many different bath and body products. In June of 2001, the unexpected happened, and I became VERY ill. The doctors had no choice but to deliver the baby by emergency c-section. So after only 5 months of pregnancy, I gave birth to a 1 pound 1 ounce premature little boy. 4 long months in the hospital by my sons side gave me A LOT of time to develop My Lip Stuff into My Lip Stuff & Other Stuff! I quickly realized that life would never be the same, and that working a "normal" 9-5 job like most people do, would be impossible for this single parent with a special needs child. My Lip Stuff needed to be developed into a fully functional business and online store to support myself and my disabled child, so the My Lip Stuff & Other Stuff online store was offically open for business!
Fast forward another 8+ years and I am still a single parent, working around the clock (seriously, who needs sleep!) to bring you My Lip Stuff and Other Stuff. I also find the time to homeschool my Autistic/special needs child who is now 8 years old (and who is also addicted to My Lip Stuff!). My Lip Stuff continues to be a thriving online store, with a 1000 sq ft "factory" where the magic happens! Our mission is still the same: to create products that are skin, earth, and animal friendly. We stuck to our roots and still handmake all our products in very small batches to ensure freshness. The end result is plain and simple- My Lip Stuff is serious lip care with a fun flair, for the kid (albeit the responsible kid) in all of us. 


My lip stuff has become one of my favorite lip balms since the first time I got to try them back in February you can find my review here.  I still love this stuff it's great, and lasts for so long I am just now months later running out of my original 3 tubes.

The wonderful people have offered to do a giveaway for 1 lucky reader.
This is great for timing for holidays they could be stocking stuffers or just a great way to protect your lips this winter.
