These are a few of my favorite things...

There are a few things in my life that I really just love and can't live without.

And so, to quote Maria VonTrapp, "These are a few of my favorite things..."


Brandon bought these for me about three years ago and they are really the only sunglasses I ever wear. I'm so loyal to them, and I love that they cover pretty much my entire face. :)



My friend Lara wore this in college, and I would always "borrow" a spritz of it before we went out on the weekends. I have always loved it, so I asked Brandon for it for Christmas last year.

He got it for me, and I wear it every.single.day. Even those no-makeup Saturdays when my hair is in a braid and I'm donning a baseball cap. It just makes me feel like a lady.

PS: Did anyone see the SNL spoof on this? Hilarious!



I tried one of these once and I was immediately hooked. They last for two-three weeks and for that time it always looks like you have perfect, shiny nails.

Since I don't get my hair colored {anymore} or really ever get my hair cut that often since it grows so darn slow, this is my one little indulgence.



For this busy working girl, the Crock Pot is my BFF. I wake up a few minutes early, sleepily combine the ingredients and turn the "low" button on before I leave. And then, wa-la, 10 hours later I come home to a fabulous, already made meal!

My favorite Crock Pot meals are:


And yes, I know I've talked about it before, but Kiehl's "Superbly Efficient Anti-Perspirant and Deodrant Cream" is my absolute favorite. Buy it.



I've worn this stuff since high school and I love it. I keep coming back to it. It's the only pink-y color that doesn't look too pink or too dark with my super light skin tone.

And it's not "too much" like some lipsticks can be (I wore this color on my wedding day), but it's also not "not enough" like some lip glosses can be. And it's only $14.50. Compare that to the Chanel lip gloss I was wearing for awhile and it's a steal!


Happy Thursday! {I totally thought today was Wednesday, so yay!}
