Some current favs.......

Hope in a Jar.....Let me just say that this face lotion is so so so great. It has a neutral smell and absorbs quickly and is so soft. I love this stuff so much.'s really expensive for lotion-well to me anyways because I like a good bargain. It just hurts to pay for it and therefore I only have done it once. I splurged one day and I was not sorry at all. I was scraping that jar till the last drop was consumed.

CeraVe PM Facial Moisturizing Lotion. In my search for a more affordable face lotion, the dermatologist that I went to last week recommended this. It's $13 and I had a $2 off coupon. That price made me much happier. I used it last night and I really like it. It has no smell, which I love. It absorbed but my face still felt soft this morning. I'm using the PM for both morning and night but they also have an AM with sunscreen that I plan on getting this summer if I continue to like this. I'm not a fan at all of wearing lotions with sunscreen but it has to be done. Protect your face-we aren't 18 anymore!

Tangle Teezer. If you would like to avoid the morning and night debacle of your middle child screaming and crying while you brush her hair, run to Sally's and get this brush for about 8 bucks. Your sanity will thank you for it. I use it now, as well. We own three of them.

Lipton Raspberry Instant Iced Tea. My momma let me in on a little secret. I needed a non-ice cream (gag) punch recipe for the shower I had at my house. This is my mom's go-to punch recipe and it's simple. Dissolve one cup of this instant tea in 2 cups of water. Add 2 liters of gingerale. That's it. Simplicity at its finest. You can also use the peach or lemon flavored tea but raspberry it the best. It is so easy, it would be great to serve at basically any party.

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. It is really difficult for me to express my love for Urban Decay eye shadow. It is the best eye shadow. Ever. I have palette 1 & 3. They are fabulous. 3 has pink hues and they are gorgeous. This eye shadow goes on like silk and doesn't leave your eyelid. Try it and you will never go back to anything else. $52 and worth every penny and lasts, oh, FOREVER.........You are getting 12 shadows. That's less than $5 per shadow.

Sanibel Reversible Pendant Necklace from Stella & Dot. My friend gave me this necklace for my bday over 18 months ago and I wear it all the time. It comes in silver, too.

You can flip it over and this is the other side. You basically have two necklaces in one.

Land O Lakes Saute' Express. I haven't tried it yet but I'm really thinking it's gonna be yummy. You can just saute up your chicken and there you go. I've been looking for low carb options and since butter is on the list, I'm thinking yes to this. There's several flavors. And really, who doesn't love a little cube of butter?

Stevia in the Raw. Well, I did it. I made the switch. I got off of Sweet & Low because my research has found that his is better than aspartame, succrolose?, and other things I can't spell. This doesn't have the after taste like so many sweeteners. I don't do sugar either so this is what I put in my tea. I like it now. It took about a month but it has become what I prefer. Now, my Diet DP addiction has been a tricky little issue. I am slowly starting to ween off of those, too. I do not drink them every day. It's a sad sad sight at 3pm each day when I get the "I need a Diet DP/some fizz or I will chew off my arm" but I'm making it.  Diet drinks are a drug!!!! I need a Diet DP support group.
