These Are a Few of My Favorite Things!

Are you like me and you love to hear testimonials of products and things that other’s like.  Especially from close friends and family.  If they like it and they say it works, then we just have to give it a try.  I thought I would share with you a few things that I’m loving right now.

Before we get started, if you haven’t subscribed to my blog, I would be honored if you did.  I’m in the process of building my email list.  If you look to the right side of my blog you will see a box that you type your email address in.  Once I receive that, you will then receive an email whenever I write a new post.  I try to write 2-3 times a week.  Okay, sometimes it’s just one post a week.   That way you won’t miss anything and I hope to have some special things for my subscribers soon. I hope to encourage, inspire, inform and brighten your day.  Your email address is safe, trust me.

Okay, on to a few of my favorite things this week: (imagine the music playing from The Sound of Music; “My Favorite Things.”)  By the way….This movie is really one of my favorites!

I found this purse at TJ MAX the other day and just couldn’t pass it up.  First of all, it was polka dot, second it had a bow on it and finally, it was a glitter bow.  SOLD!  The brand is Betsey Johnson.  I am always drawn to her things.  I can always tell if something is a Betsey Johnson.

I found a set of teacups and saucers at a tea room a few years ago in Ruidoso, New Mexico.  Anything with a cameo will catch my attention.  This teapot is my favorite as well.  I made this bouquet of flowers for my mom today and I had to add the cameo on the box for the final touch.  Pink roses, cameo teacup, polka dot teapot.  Can’t go wrong with that!

For the past couple of years, I have been using this gel nail polish by Sally Hansen.  You don’t have to use a light.  You paint on two coats of the polish and then one coat of the clear.  It dries really fast, too! They have some beautiful colors and once I paint my nails, it will usually stay on for a couple of weeks.  My nails are strong with this polish on  and they look good for at least two weeks.  This color is one of my favorites.  I think it is called, Game of Chrome.  It’s a light gold sparkly color.

For maybe three years, I’ve been using this foot cream from Bath and Body Works.  I have really dry skin and my feet are just as dry.  Since I discovered this foot cream, my feet are always soft and never rough anymore.  I put it on every morning after my shower.  If you put sandals on right afterwards, you might want to wait or you will slide around in your shoes.  Let the lotion soak in for a bit.  You probably don’t need to ask my how I know this.

Anyone that knows me well, knows I love Little Debbie cakes.  Each holiday, I have the hardest time resisting these things.  If you are working on your weight, you might want to be careful as these hearts are 290 calories.  If you are doing the Weight Watchers program, that would be 13 points.  If you have, let’s say 30 points you are allowed to eat each day…13 points is almost half of your day.  Don’t ask me how I know this one either.  But, aren’t they oh, so cute and yes, yummy!

I found this cute sign at Hobby Lobby.  I couldn’t resist!  I love glitter, so it caught my eye.  These little note cards are adorable.  When I go to Michael’s Crafts, I always check the $1.50 bin.  They always have the cutest notecards.  I bought my writing pen on our cruise ship that we were on last year.  It has Swarovski Crystals in it.  I just couldn’t leave it on the ship!

Last on my list today is my Ningxia Red that I have been drinking each morning for the past two years.  Did you notice my perfume crystal clock?  I love that thing.  My Jim gave it to me for Christmas.  It’s from ZGallerie (my favorite shop)  Anyway, back to the Ningxia Red.  I order this from Young Living Essential Oils.  I’ve been using the oils for a long time now and decided to try the drink and it gives me energy and I honestly believe it builds my immunities because I haven’t really had a cold or anything since I’ve been drinking it.  I’m almost scared to say that.  Watch me get sick tomorrow.  Under my picture I will post info of what is in this drink and what it’s benefits are.
