When we think of summertime, a few things immediately come to mind: hot, hot heat, a lot of barbecuing, and plenty of time spent at the beach or poolside. However, some of our everyday summer activities can do a number on our lips, leaving them dry, cracked, and in dire need of moisture. From the sun’s powerful and harmful rays to excessive beer and sangria drinking and constant contact with harsh salt and chlorinated water, it’s crucial that we keep our lips protected and moisturized. Especially if you plan on engaging in some summer love lip-locking. With that in mind, we rounded up 13 of the best balms of the summer—and we’re not talking your average tube of ChapStick. The following products are packed with extra benefits, whether they have added SPF, a moisture-filled hint of color, or a priming scrub. Some simply come in such adorable packaging, we can’t help but want to include them in our beach bags. Click through the gallery below to check out our favorites of the season, and prepare to have a perfectly soft pout, all summer long.
Internet, say hello to your new, hot dog-shaped overlord. Over the weekend, a little girl showed up to her dance class' Princess Day dressed as everybody's favorite tubular encased meat. So, while her friends did their best Elsa and Cinderella impersonations, she chose to go the road less travelled—the road of ballpark snacks. After photos of the girl surfaced online, they quickly went viral, and before long, #hotdogprincess was trending on Tumblr and Twitter. The girl's father eventually took to Twitter to confirm what we already knew: The costume was totally her idea. "No parent is ready to learn that their daughter is trending... #hotdogprincess," wrote Brandon E Turner. "Best part is it was all her idea!" He also shared a few more photos of his daughter totally killing it as Hot Dog Princess. And while yes, the photo does make us extra hungry, especially with that yellow mustard streaking down her torso, it's also a triumphant reminder of the power of individuality, and the importance of always being yourself. So, the next time someone asks you to be a princess, be a hot dog instead.
