Favorite Things

There's a trend in the blog world in which bloggers are listing their favorite things. I love these types of posts as it offers exposure to products, books, apparel, etc. that their audiences might not already be privy to. 

Let me share with you a few of my favorite things, in no particular order...

Voluspa Candles in Baltic Amber. This scent to me says 1) Anthropologie and 2) home. Those are two things I don't mind associating with one another. Voluspa offers many lovely scents (and some not so lovely, so beware). If you've never smelled this lovely smell, you are missing out, my friend. 


Has there ever been a boot more lovely? I submit that there has not! My sweet husband bought these Steve Madden Intyce Cognac boots for me a couple years ago, and my word, they are my favorite thing in my closet. I had seen a girl wearing them at a conference, followed her around, in humble adoration of of her footwear, and finally asked her where she got them. They were a discontinued line by my friend Steve, but luckily for us all, they're back! 



If you shop for anything online, you are wasting money if you do know about RetailMeNot.  Even if you're not an avid couponer, please know that is totally worth the .5 second it will take you to check before every online purchase. Hit their site, enter the store you're buying from, and it will give you any and all online discount codes that may apply to your purchase. From free shipping, $10 off your purchase, additional 25% off... It's great!  Make this part of your online buying routine. 





Buying gifts for those who have everything is tough. Consider buying a gift for those who have nothing instead. Gospel for Asia is a great ministry, based in the Dallas area, that is making real progress in providing the basic needs for the hurt and hungry in Asia, as a way to share the love of Christ. Check out their Christmas catalog here. You buy livestock, seeds, Bibles, bicycles, etc that are given directly to those in need, and you can donate in the name of your own loved ones. 

Never has a cleaning product made my so happy. Mrs. Meyer's Clean Day products are the bomb.com. My kitchen counters are currently rocking the Lemon Verbena scent, and I think my guest bathroom is featuring the Basil hand soap. I buy it at HEB, but their website has better prices. (Sad day, RetailMeNot does not currently offer any discount codes for Mrs. Meyers website)
Benefit Hoola Bronzer. My makeup drawer boasts a random collection of some fancy and some not so fancy make up items. Some I'm willing to pay the big bucks for (read more than $10), and others, I'll find in the drug store clearance aisle. Depends on my mood and depends on the product. However, this my friends, is the best bronzer and worth every penny. (Pssst buy it from Amazon for a huge discount)
I'm a chap stick kinda girl. I'm not a fan of sticky gloss or of smudgy lip stick. I have been neglecting my lips in my makeup routine for years, but alas, I've found a remedy! Burt's Bees Tinted Lip Balm in Tiger Lily. It hydrates well, and gives just enough color to make me a happy girl.

That's all I've got for now. If you happen to post your favorite things, please leave me a link!
