My Favorite Things

When was the last time someone asked you what your favorite_________ was? It’s been a while for me.  I don’t have many “favorites”, but the ones that I do, well… I tend to hold onto them for a while. So, I decided to open up and share with all my followers some of my favorite things. A few relate to motherhood and some are just things I like because that’s just my personal style. 😉 Anyways, let’s be honest…it’s always fun to hear what other people’s favorite products are. (Plus, I needed a little break from topics on “motherhood”.) 😉 Today I’m sharing things about me , maybe you’ll find something we have in common. 😉

P.S. This is not a sponsored post, just little snippets about the mama behind the keyboard…

This is me in a nutshell…

Personal Hygiene 


Face Wash: Simple

I’ll open up here and share with you that I use to have really bad acne. I still break out occasionally, but since switching to this face wash I have seen a drastic change. I honestly believe the harsh chemicals from all the acne products were just too harsh on my skin, but that’s just my opinion. I use the cleansing wipes for at night and the face wash for in the morning.

Moisturizer: Coconut Oil

Seriously, I feel like it has done wonders to my skin, especially to some acne scars I had.

Shampoo & Conditioner: Pantene Protein

I’m a Pantene Protein kind of lady. I have two that I go back and forth between…smooth & sleek OR Volume.

Perfume: Vera Wang, Truly Pink

I’m also a perfume kind of lady, not body spray.

Beauty Supplies


Foundation: Almay Smart Shade Foundation & Powder

My number is 200. 🙂 I use to be obsessed with Bare Minerals, but I had to find something a bit cheaper to fit my budget.

Mascara: Great Lash by Maybelline

I buy the waterproof brand. It’s cheap, but produces great results!

Eye Shadow: Urban Decay Naked Basics

This is the one area where I tend to splurge on. I love the color palette and it lasts me a while.

I also wear chap stick everyday and occasionally I wear lipstick, but those always vary and I’m not too picky about them.

Everyday Items

I’m obsessed with Tervis Tumblers, like I kind of have a problem (Big John likes to make fun of me for it). 😉

My favorite drink is La Croix in either lemon or grapefruit flavor.

Before having little Johnny my favorite clothes store to shop at was Loft or Banana Republic, but NOW I love shopping at Old Navy and I can wear their boyfriend t-shirts everyday!

I always wear 3 bracelets, they’re my staple items.

Pandora Charm bracelet

Alex & Ani charm bracelet with the word “Mom”

Lokai Bracelet (represents your highest & lowest point in life)

Mama Gear 

I have to say, I’m a pretty simple person when it comes to mama & baby gear (We don’t even have a snack tray or cup holder on our stroller. I know crazy, right?!) With that being said…I do love our Baby Jogger City Select stroller. This was an item I honestly researched like a mad women on, and it’s still one of my favorites!

Random Items 

Favorite color: yellow

Favorite flowers: daisies & succulents

Favorite food: anything with avocado in it 😉

Favorite author: Nicholas Sparks & Gillian Flynn

These are just bits & pieces about me! Do we share anything in common?  What are some of your favorite items?

Wishing You Well,

Happy Mama, Happy Wife, Happy Life
