These are a few of my favorite things...

I have been MIA from my blog for a few months... and surprisingly I've gotten a few requests asking if I'd update. :) I am just thrilled someone actually takes a look at this thing. Where has this year gone? December already.... I'm loving it. So since it is the first day of my favorite months... I decided to list just a few of my favorite things.
  • 1. TRESemme Extra Firm Control Hair spray

This hairspray is my most favorite, out of all I have tried. It has such a firm hold ALL day long... and if your like me and washing your hair is something that doesn't happen often :) When you wake up the next morning after wearing it all day the day before, it doesn't have the crispy gross feel like most sprays leave you with.

  • 2. Angelika Blush by NARS
If you are on the look out for a new blush, look no more. This blush is amazing, last all day long, and a little goes a LONG way. It comes in 21 different colors.

  • 3. L'oreal Sublime Bronze Self-Tanning Lotion

This self-tanner has NEVER done me wrong. I have used it for 4 years, and still LOVE the results. I usually shower, then apply. It dries SO quick, doesn't leave you looking orange, and you are tan within 7 hours!
  • 4. Shazam, Pinterest, Dish Network, Pandora, Lose it, and Photoshop Express
These are 6 app's for the iPhone that I don't think I could live without. Shazam is great for when you hear a song and want to know who the artist is... just tap it and SHAZAM :) you got it within 20 sec. Pinterest, well.... need I say more? If you have not been to this website... check it out IMMEDIATELY, you won't be sorry! Dish Network, or any other satellite carrier, has an app where you can login and DVR (record) things on-the-go... GENIUS! Pandora is awesome for music listening... even on the go. Lose-it is great for keeping record of your calories, workouts, etc. I have tried a lot of different ones and have always gone back to Lose-it.. defiantly a favorite. Photoshop express is for editing pictures... very easy to use... LOVE!
  • 5. Clinique Redness Solution Make-up

For anyone that knows me, knows I have natural red cheeks and that I despise them. I ran into this secret weapon this summer... and it is awesome!!! I have always used Clinque's dramatically different lotion before applying my make-up... which is another one of my favorites.
Along with my favorite go to long lasting lipstick by clinique... in the color THINK BRONZE.

  • 6. Skippy Natural Peanut Butter

If you are a peanut butter lover like me, this is the best tasting and the best good-for-you natural peanut butter you can buy. I could eat it with a spoon... :)

  • 7. Knee High Socks with boots

I am loving this look for winter... Not only do these tall socks keep your legs and feet cozy, they are also precious. I have found tons of them at target, Marshall's, and TJ maxx... some for just $2.50!!! Defiantly a must buy.

  • 8. Cricut Machine

I have been eyeing this genius machine for months and finally found one for $70 at Michael's on Black Friday. If you have never heard or used one of these bad boys... they are basically a die cut machine, and they are awesome for cutting things out! The possibilities are endless... I can't wait to get a project going.

  • 9. Mod Podge

I find myself using this stuff weekly... for whatever it may be! I am constantly coming up with something to slap some mod podge on.

  • 10. Dr. Pepper Bold

I have always had a love for Dr. Pepper... so much that I used to drink THREE a day. That is a whopping 450 calories!!!!! I came to the realization that I just could no longer afford to have that many calories in my daily calorie intake, so I stopped drinking them cold turkey and went to water all day. I still drink water throughout my whole day, but I usually have one Diet Dr. Pepper... which I love. But recently I came across this Dr. Pepper Bold that just has 10 calories for an 8 fl ounce. It is basically like an in between diet and regular... and tastes WONDERFUL!
