Things I love right now...

I am a sucker for blog posts
 where people share their favorite things!

I love knowing what people can't live without 
and hearing about new products. 
So, I thought I'd share a few of my new faves.

1. This stuff has saved my hands this winter...
Praise the Lord for Satin Hands...and a big thank you to
my mother-in-law, Vickie, for giving it to me for Christmas!
It has saved my hands during this winter! Ah-mazing stuff!
The Satin Lips is great too!!!

2. This awesome new lipstick...I may have four tubes of it...

I'm pretty sure I first heard of this from my friend Liz when
she talked about her favorite makeup items.
I am a hater of lipstick, ya'll.
I love the color it brings, but hate the feel of it on my lips.
(i know, weird.)
But, this stuff gives bright color like lipstick while feeling
like chapstick. Hallelujah.
Love. It.

3. Coconut oil. Smells like heaven...

I've heard all this talk about Coconut Oil in your beauty
routines lately....so I figured I'd give it a try.
First, I tried it on my hair...ewwww. 
It was disastrous. Not pretty.
Then, I decided to try it on my face! What?!
It is awesome! The perfect light moisturizer and
it has worked wonders during a Chicago winter which says a lot!
And the smell....smells so yummy.

4. These dolls!! Be still my heart!

I am ordering two custom dolls from this lovely shop. Sophie Dolls.
Aren't they adorable???
I'm partial to the little brown ones (*wink).
We hope to be able to take them to the girls on our first trip to Africa
and they can keep them while we're apart from them.

5. These pillows were my birthday gift from the hubs...

And I luuuuv them!
Allison of Paisley Sprouts makes such pretty pillows!
They are beautifully sewn and come in such happy colors.
Go check her out and then "treat yo' self!"

6. Last, this necklace...

I'm not kidding when I say that I've worn this almost every
day since I got it! It's perfect!
I'm digging a longer chain these days and this one is 26 inches.
Hannah from Happy Days makes beautiful things...
it is dangerous how many things I love in her shop.

So, there ya go! 
A few of my favorite things!
What are you diggin' lately??!!

Any new product I shouldn't be living without?
A cute Etsy shop I have yet to stumble upon?


  1. I'm going to have to check out that hand cream! Mine are all red and cracking right now, and my normal lotion isn't cutting it.
    And that Allison and her pillows... she's amazing.
    Thanks so much for sharing all of the lovely finds and for including my dolls! I am looking forward to working with you on your custom ones! xo
