My Favorite Things-From Eyelashes to Precious Moments

Hi Friends!

I hope all is going well and you had a great weekend!

Today, I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite things!  In case you haven’t noticed, I have so many favorite things!  When I began using Pinterest , I had no idea how to label each board.  I ended up giving each board the title “iLove_____,”  simply because, I do love so many different things.  If you don’t follow me on Pinterest, I would love for you to do so.  I have to limit my time when pinning, one thing leads to another and another and another.  The timer on my phone comes in pretty handy.

Okay, now back to a few things I wanted to share with you today that I recently fell in love with. I wish I could insert the song, “These Are a Few of My Favorite Things,” as you read the rest of this post.  I love that song from the movie, “The Sound of Music,”  don’t you?  I end up singing it to myself at least once a week.

I have a friend who sells the skincare line from Rodan + Fields.  Check out her site here! So far, I have loved everything and this was one of my last purchases. (No, the Hydrating Serum was my last)  The Lash Boost really works.  You put it on your top lash line every night.  After about 5 weeks, I thought, “Wow, I think it did something!”  Here is a little picture I tried to take of my lashes since using this product.

That might not be too impressive, but for me, my lashes were hurting due to getting the lash extensions a while back.  My lashes had struggled ever since.  I really didn’t need lash extensions….I just thought it would be interesting to see what they looked like.  Plus, we were going on a cruise and that was my excuse…I wouldn’t have to worry about mascara.  You can read about my eyelash fiasco here.  Needless to say, I’m not a good candidate for lash extensions. It was me, not the lash extensions!

I recently discovered these chips from a friend who liked them.  Now, I’m a fan.  But what is even more fun are these little sliders that you put on your open bags.  I’ve always used clothes pins to close up chip bags and all the many bags that need sealing.  I saw these on QVC and they just came in and I LOVE them!  Click here to check them out for yourself.

I am a big Precious Moments fan.  I have a few of the figurines and when I saw this at DisneyWorld last April, I fell in love with them again.  I use this picture as my screen saver on my phone.  I know…crazy…what can I say?  By the way, I will be sharing our DisneyWorld trip in a few days.  What fun we had!  Also, have you ever been to the Precious Moments Chapel in Joplin, MO?  I love that place!  Click here to read more about it and make plans for you next getaway!

The last few months I have been trying a new make-up line. I had gone to a spa to get my eyebrows done and they shared this makeup with me and I have really liked it.  I had never heard of Jane Iredale before.  I have dry skin and it really feels good on my face.  I’ve loved the spray mist that you spray on after you finish putting all your make-up on.  Two thumbs up as they say! Click here to go to their site to see all their make-up.

I know!!! Contain yourself!  Aren’t these the cutest purses!!!!!  For my birthday this past May, my mom surprised me with this typewriter purse!  We had spotted it at a boutique and I wasn’t about to pay what it was priced at, but, I couldn’t stop thinking about it and I was contemplating a good excuse.  I thought, “Wouldn’t this be adorable to take to a writer’s conference!”  I know!!!!  I was in shock when I opened this gift from my mom! (She always gives the best gifts!) The purse in the background is another one that  she gave me a few years ago.  That’s the purse I always say I’m going to take to the Kentucky Derby….if I ever get to go!  Click here to see more purses by Mary Frances.  By the way, check out the Cinderella Carriage purse and the camera purse.  Double squeal!!!! Let me know if you are a Mary Frances fan!

I’ll stop for now…I could go on and on about all My Favorite Things.  Thank you for dropping by and taking the time to read my latest.  I would love to hear if any of these items are on your list of favorites!

The Lord has allowed me to enjoy some really pretty places and things, but I always know that my joy doesn’t come from things.  My true inner joy comes from knowing Jesus Christ as my Savior.  I invited Christ into my life at the age of 14 and made Him Lord of everything in my life.  I pray that you know Him and He is Lord of your life.  

 “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope inHim!” Lamentations 3:24

*Note:  I am not getting paid for any of this….all my own reviews of items that I’m loving right now!

I also want to thank all the subscribers and readers of my blog!  You inspire me to keep writing!

Trusting you are having a great summer so far!

Blessings to you and your family,




  1. Love all of them! I’ve been using the Monat eyelash booster and I can’t tell any difference but everyone raves about R & F. Think I’m going to have to try it. Love the purses but not enough to pay that price. 😀

    1. I haven’t heard of the Monat brand. If you try the R&F, let me know what you think. It took me awhile to notice anything, but then all of the sudden, I could tell big time. When I went to get my eyebrows done the last time, I was asked what I was doing because she even noticed my eyelashes. That’s when I really knew it wasn’t my imagination. 🙂 Keep your eyes open because those purses will be on sale sometimes. 🙂 The flower purse was half price. Have a great reset of the week!
