These are a few of my favorite things....

Today I wanted to share with you a few of the things that I use and could not live without.

1. I have extremely dry skin. As in, painfully dry skin. For years I've used Olay Beauty Lotion, but this winter has been so cold and dry that I needed something thicker. Welcome Olay Active Hydrating Cream. This cream is thick and hydrating and wonderful. It keeps my skin feeling hydrated all day long, but it does not make it greasy.

2. My mom has always emphasized the importance of washing your face every night before bed and using a really good moisturizer to keep your skin healthy. Skin repairs itself at night, so its important to take your make up off and let it breathe. I've used Night of Olay since I was a freshman in high school and I love it for now than I did then. Just like the day cream, it keeps my skin healthy and hydrated.

3. I am cold all the time. Seriously, all.the.time. Especially my feet. So I was thrilled to find these wonderful creations at Old Navy. Slipper socks! Call them ugly. Call them dorky. But guess who has warm feet. this girl! I actually bought the last pair at my local Old Navy, just so I would have a back up pair, because my current pair is not going to last forever.

4. I have to carry a HUGE purse because of have so much stuff that I need through out the day. Recently, I got tired of digging through it to find my wallet, glasses, gum,ect. so I started looking for pouches to store things in so I would be able to find them easier. Welcome, zippered pouches from The Pleated Poppy.  These are the perfect size for make up, gum, cell phone-whatever you need to throw in them. Honestly, when I first got it in the mail, I thought it was a little small, but this thing(I only have one so far) hold everything.

5. I always said that I would never.never wear jeggings. And then I tried them on. These things are soooo comfortable. I got mine from Old Navy, but I've seen them at just about every store, including Target.

6. Growing up, I had no idea how to take care of my curly hair. Finally, sometime around my sophomore year in high school I learned how to treat my hair so that it would look the way I wanted it to. For years I went from product to product trying to find the perfect one. It wasn't until last summer that I started using John Frieda's Take Charge Curl Boosting Mousse. I fell in love with this stuff after the first use. It provides wonderful structure and hold for my hair, but doesn't weigh it down or leave it feeling crunchy.

These are just a few of the things that I cannot live without. What about you? What can't you live without. Do share!


*It goes without saying, but I will say it anyways: The companies and products I listed above have no idea who I am. I just love their stuff.


  1. I am gonna have to try the Frizz-Ease stuff...maybe it will help my frizurly(that is a combo of frizzy and curly) hair!

  2. You will love it! Its super cheap too, which makes me love it more!
