Current Favorites

Here are some of my favorite things these days.

Lush's Lemony Flutter Lemon, shea butter, beeswax and avocado oil help soften cuticles and nourish nails. With the changing of the seasons, comes dry skin, so I've been using it everywhere - hands, nails, feet, elbows, knees, and even overnight on my lips! It smells delicious, it's super thick, and a little goes a long way. I love it!


Maybelline - The Nudes Confession: I've never bought a blogger coveted Naked palette. Gasp! I've just found that with a good primer, you don't really need expensive shadow, so I stick to drugstore brands. But because palettes are so pretty, I was excited to see this one at Target and snatched it up. I really like it. It's full of soft, neutral shades (which is all I wear) and just ten bucks! 



EcoTools Just like eye shadow, I don't buy expensive brushes. EcoTools are awesome. They're made with cruelty-free bristles, recycled aluminum, and bamboo, with a reusable storage pouch made of hemp and cotton. I have these two sets, but there are many, many more options.


Seth MacFarlane I know he's controversial, but I love him. After listening to his Christmas album a lot lately and enjoying years and years of Family Guy, I've developed quite the crush. Plus, he's BFFs with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Charlize Theron, who are some of my favorite people, so he's awesome by proxy. I'm gonna let A Million Ways to Die in the West slide and cross my fingers for Ted 2


Evolution Fresh I've been trying to get more fruit and veggies in every day, and juicing is the easiest way to do it. I do have juicer, but it takes so much time, so much clean up, and can get expensive! These juices aren't cheap, but I've been picking up three or four each week. It's cold-pressed to help protect the nutrients of the raw fruits and veggies and there are no added colors or flavors. I love it!



Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castille Bar Soap I've been exclusively using Dr. Bronner's bar soaps for almost two years now. It's so great for my sensitive skin, totally moisturizing, and has a bunch of good hippie stuff going for it (vegan, organic, non-GMO, recycled wrapping, fair trade, not tested on animals). I've always used tea tree, but picked this up on a whim and I'm addicted. It's such a great scent for winter! 


TwoDots App I thought I was obsessed with the puzzle game Dots, but then the creators made this one! Just connect the dots through 185 levels with fun new features. I play it every night while watching TV.


Yes To Coconut Naturally Smooth Lip Balm A mix of aloe, coconut, and shea butter makes this lip balm 99% natural and totally hydrating and moisturizing. Plus it smells like a tropical vacation! I like the shape of oval tube too.

I also love Lemony Flutter. Now that we have a Lush in my city, I think I need to get there and get some. It might be the only thing that saves my hands this winter.

I love Seth MacFarlane as well! As for most of your other loves on this list- I haven't tried them! Got some good ideas though, thanks.

You are a girl after my own loves! I need that lemon stuff in my life. I need to try that lip balm I have the lip oil, it's awesome. Eco tools, love! And now I need that pallet.

I've never heard of most of these things (except Seth MacFarlane) but now I'm going to have to do some exploring!

Yeah I so liked this post

The Dr. Bronner's bars are moisturizing? I prefer soap over shower gel and am always looking for good ones.

Nice palette!

I bought a similar palette recently at Target from NYX. I think I need this one too.

I need to try that eye shadow. I don't use expensive stuff either. And those colors are exactly what I use. John and I were blown away when we found out that Seth can sing. John said "is this some kind of joke". He is really good! I've tried two dots and I suck. Maybe I'll try again. I'm currently obsessed with Candy Crush again.
