A Few of My Favorite Things...

Since the Holiday season is in full swing, I thought I'd post up a few things that I am currently in love with. These are just some items that I either always have in my bag, wear a lot, or am constantly reaching for. I thought that since I love them so much, someone you know might enjoy them too- or even yourself. So here they are...

Rose Salve- Rose Salve is a great multipurpose 'ointment' for chapped lips, dry skin, etc. This particular one by C.O. Bigelow has a very subtle hint of pink. When you apply it to your lips, it gives is a nice glossy and flushed look. I purchased this tin over a year ago at Bath and Body works for $5.50- I use it constantly and still have so much left! Another great one is Smith's Rosebud Salve that you can find at Sephora (I believe it's a couple dollars more expensive though).

Infinity Scares- I bought this particular infinity scarf from H&M for $9.95. I love infinity scarves because they're so warm and chunky. It's a giant loop and you can play around with for different looks- wrap it around 2 times, 3 times, etc. It's also great for those of us who find it hard to tie our scarves properly. Anyway you wear an it, it falls on your neck nicely without much effort.

My makeup bag- So I was browsing around the Target $1 section and found this adorable croc-inspired, patent makeup bag. It's not too big which is the perfect size for me since I don't carry a lot of my makeup around. It can also double as a wristlet for nights out. And best of all, it was only a dollar!

Matte Eyeshadows- When I first started using makeup, I loved big, bold, and lots of SHIMMER. After some experimenting, I've come to realize that less is more. While I do still love my flashy eyeshadows, I think a nice matte eyeshadow can go a long way- it enhances our eyes without bringing in too much unwanted attention. I particularly love these Revlon matte shadows- I purchased them at CVS when they were having a BOGO sale.

Booties for Home- I am always cold so wintertime is problematic for me. I always layer up when I go outside- sweater, coat, gloves, hat, scarf, etc. But when I'm a home, it's uncomfortable to wear so much. I found these booties at Charlotte Russe for $15. They're lightweight and comfortable so you don't feel like you're wearing a lot. They also keep my little feet nice and toasty.

Orangina- As you can tell from my empty bottle, Orangina is one of my favorite drinks. Light, crisp, bubbly, and refreshing- YUM! (It may be hard to find, but if you're in NYC, you can pick some up at Dean and Deluca)

What are some of your favorite things?
