A Few of My Favorite Things
We all have our favorite things that we just can’t live without. I have wanted to do a post on mine for quite some time now and today is your lucky day! Here are some of my favorite things that I just can’t live without!
My face wash…Dermalogica. I was introduced to this brand about 2 years ago and it has changed my life. I know that sounds a bit dramatic but it has. I have always had acne, nothing crazy severe but enough to annoy the bejeezus out of me. This stuff completely..I said COMPLETELY..wiped it out for me. Thank you baby jesus.
Bra..Victoria Secret’s Miraculous Push Up Bra. Yes it’s freaking miraculous. Why? Because if I didn’t wear it I would look 12 in the boobage department. This bra makes you a size or two bigger than what you are and when you have had 2 kids and have lost any boobage that you might have had pre-kids..this bra is a flipp’n god send. I know what people think, “Well that is just false advertisement”. Let me tell you something, I have been with B for 13 years..He knows what is under there and I’m not out to impress anyone els,e so for me it’s just about feeling like I am actually 34 and not 12 (even though some 12 year old will put me to shame now), it’s about being able to fill a shirt, it’s about feeling good.
Face Moisturizer…Clinique Youth Surge with SPF 15. A couple of years ago I pissed off the skin god and in retaliation it gave me a couple of patches of dermatitis. Dermatitis is a fancy word for freaking annoying dry skin. I would get a couple of patches on my face and they would move around to different places when they felt like it. It was super. I was so annoyed with it I took my butt to the dermatologist to figure out what the hell it was and why it was there. She told me it could be a number of different things that have caused it and gave me an antibiotic to take and some lotion. Well neither worked, nor did changing what “could be” causing it. UGH! I was so annoyed! I took my happy ass to Belk one day and headed to the Clinique counter to see if they had a magic potion. Well they did! I started using their Youth Surge and within days the dry patches cleared right up and haven’t been back since. Thank you baby jesus.
Makeup….Cover Girl Point Plus Eyeliner. Yes Cover Girl! I have been loyal to this eyeliner for years…YEARS, I’m talking all the way back to the high school days. I love it, love it, love it. I have tried other eyeliners..cheap ones, expensive ones and I always come back to this one.
Shoes….Reef Flip Flops. Are all flip flops created equal? In my eyes the answer is no. I am a label whore when it comes to my flippy flops. I heart the brand Reef, that is all that I will wear. They are comfy and they treat my feet right…as their site says..”Ridiculously Comfortable”
More Shoes..BOOTS! I heart boots, to the point of needing therapy. My latest purchase or I should say purchases in the boot department was the Althea Platform boot. I tried a pair on at Agac`i a couple of weeks back (totally shopping for something else and made the mistake of walking through the store for just a “looky see”) and fell in love with them, so much so that I bought this boot in tan and black. They are super comfy and oh so sexy. I love them. **If you have never been in an Agac`i store I highly recommend it! Their clothes are great and not over priced but their shoes are all kinds of fabulous! All are reasonably priced (I have never spent over $35 for a pair of shoes, including the boots) and all are so comfortable. Go check them out!
