When I was a kid I really wanted to be a marine biologist. I don’t know if it was because I grew up in Maine near the ocean, or just because I loved sharks. I really loved sharks. I drew pictures of them and wrote stories about them and read lots and lots (and lots) of books about them. And part of me still thinks they are just the coolest animals ever.

As some of you may know, Sunday marks the beginning of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week. I’m really excited to be celebrating Shark Week on my Facebook page this year! I’ll be sharing the “Catch of the Day” from Sunday through Saturday, with fun shark-themed products that I like. I’ll also share shark facts, videos, artwork, and more! (Don’t worry: I’ll keep the gore to a minimum.)

What celebration is complete without a special lip balm? I figured the Shark Bite would be a perfect choice! Based on the cocktail of the same name, the Shark Bite is a layered balm with grenadine pooling on the bottom, topped by a rum-and-citrus flavored blue balm and a bright blue cap. All orders placed between July 31 and August 6 will automatically receive a Shark Bite balm. Of course, you can also order extras! They’re available at our site.

Please consider joining us this week on Facebook! (I can’t wait to drive everyone nuts being the crazy shark lady!)

What about you? Do you like Shark Week? How do you celebrate?
