A Few of My Favorite Things


I love reading posts where bloggers share some of their favorite products. I love these posts so much that as I’m going about my day I start thinking through how I would write a post about my favorite products that I use. So why not share a few with you?

eye shadow
I LOVE this eye liner. I have it in Starry Plum, but had Egyptian before that. You can’t really tell that I’m wearing colored eye shadow, but I feel like it brings out the color of my eyes more. And cream is right in the name, this liner is so creamy! (Name the movie: “These mashed potatoes are so creamy.” One of my family’s favorite movie lines…")

Jace was only a few weeks old when we decided to invest in a baby monitor. Nolan thought it necessary when I found the need to constantly go make sure he was breathing. We are HUGE video monitor fans. I finally dropped the monitor end of our unit a few too many times and we recently replaced it with this one. It is amazing. It even tells you the temperature of the baby’s room, so now I don’t have to wonder if Jace is warm/cool enough.

I LOVE my ruffler foot. The one I found online through Joann’s is expensive. But I happened to find one for $30 in my store. It’s an off brand, but it works for me. Just make sure you have a straight needle and the correct type for the kind of material you’re sewing, and that it’s perfectly centered on the foot or else you’ll find it jamming all.the.time.

I got these flats at Kohls and they are SO comfortable. (You can see me wearing them in THIS post.) They’re super warm and super soft on the inside. And they’re cute.

I first “met” Rachael’s Handmade Soap Shop when she sponsored a giveaway for me. I couldn’t resist the scents she offered and bought the Peppermint Wake Up Bar. It’s still my favorite, but right now I’m using the Cranberry Orange and it smells so wonderful.

How about you, what are some of your favorite things? If you happen to write (or have written) a post about them, leave a link in the comments.

(I was not compensated for or asked to mention any of these products. I just love them that much.)

Parties I Like to Link Up With:


  1. Oh I love clinque especially their mascara that comes off with just warm water (can't think of the name off the top of my head)!

    Those flats looks so cute & comfy :)

  2. Is that from While You Were Sleeping? I love how that family is so crazy with their conversation.

    Those shoes are so cute!


I appreciate comments so much! I'll do my best to reply to you here in the comments section, especially if there is a question so future readers can see the answer.
