These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things....

I was doing laundry while thinking about my blog, and realized, "Wow. My blog is really boring." So then I started thinking about what I could do to liven it up. And suddenly, the Sound of Music started playing in my head and the light went "DING!". I thought maybe once a week or so I could do some reviews on some of my favorite things! I always love finding out what other people like and why...so maybe you will to! So, here is my first round of THESE ARE A FEW OF MY FAVORITE THINGS! :)

1. SCENTSY

Have you heard about Scentsy? I found out about it last year and I have to say I am absolutely hooked. Basically, it is a flameless candle. You buy a warmer that plugs into the wall, and your favorite scents of wax bricks. You put a wax brick on the warmer, it melts the wax and your house smells INCREDIBLE. I'm not even kidding. I love that I don't have to worry about it with the kids. It's up on the bar where they like to color and stuff, and I don't have to worry about them setting their coloring books on fire. And the smells....OH, the smells!!! My favorites are Blueberry Cheesecake, Skinny Dipping, Cinnamon Vanilla, and Orange Creamsicle (drool). They make me want to eat my house.


2. COFFEE CREAMER

I know Mormons don't drink coffee...but I used to look at those creamers and a tear would start in my eye. How could they make all these fabulous flavors to taunt me!?! And then I bought some anyway. I used it in my hot chocolate (another one of my favorite things) and it was heavenly! How did I ever drink cocoa without it? I don't know. And you should start using it immediately. They make your cocoa so creamy! My favorite flavors are White Chocolate Raspberry, Chocolate raspberry (the brown chocolate kind), Mint Truffle, French Vanilla, and Amaretto. Mmmm, especially when you mix French Vanilla, Amaretto, and a touch of Perro. It's a Mormon probably (make that DEFINITELY) would be a coffee addict's dream come true!


3. My last one of the day....BONNIE BELL LIP SMACKERS

Okay, now that I'm thinking about it, this SHOULD be my #1. Especially since I just barely put some on. This picture may or may not be my collection. But, if you've tried it you would know why. It is so smooth and glossy and it's not sticky. It moistens perfectly, leaves a cute glossy pout, and tastes delicious. I always have some with me. I have tried pretty much every gloss or chapstick out there, and I ALWAYS go back to my Lip Smackers. My mom got me hooked when I was little. I remember going to JCPenneys and they always had a Bonnie Bell stand in the children's clothing department. I could stand there for hours. My favorite flavor is....okay, that would be impossible...my favorite FLAVORS are Dr. Pepper (it also leaves a nice deep cherry colored sheen), Strawberry Kiwi, Vanilla, Wild Raspberry, Red Raspberry, Strawberry....okay, I could go on all day. But you get my point, they are all fabulous! There are three things a girl should never go without in her purse (besides your wallet/drivers license). Lip Smackers, tampons, and a mini Bath and Body works lotion/hand sanitizer. But mostly Lip Smackers.


Woo hoo!!! Now, wasn't that exciting? It was for me. Until next time, my friends! :)

My old YW Pres. sells Scentsy and tried to get me to do it. I'm so not a selling girl but if you want to, I can hook you up with the info. I love those creamers too. Amaretto is my fave. Those other flavors don't even exist here. (tear) And you know I'm rocking them with my Pero too. Miss you Nat!

Hey, I don't think your blog is boring. :) Love the new banner. Also, Dr. Pepper lip balm is a classic.

Love this post! You made me drool and also made me need to put on some Lip Smackers. I am SO with you--there's been a few times I've somehow forgotten to bring a tube to church and I thought I was going to die going for 3 hours without it. Seriously. Right now I'm using Cotton Candy, and I also love Mango and Tropical Punch. I remember there being a sparkly chocolate mint version, too.......
