My Favorite Things

It's that time of year for shopping and gift giving! Sharing a few of my personal favorite things. What are yours?!

1. Trader Joe's Dark Sipping Chocolate

I have officially crossed over to the dark side...when it comes to chocolate, this is. Anything dark chocolate suits me. Since I'm not a coffee drinker Trader Joe's Dark Hot Chocolate gives me a bit of a caffeine boost and makes me feel a little more sophisticated. ;-)


2. Blume Blanket Scarf

I'll be honest, I've never been a scarf person...until now! I absolutely love this super soft, cozy Blume Red Multi Plaid Blanket Scarf. I wear it all the time and even around the house to keep me warm. I pair it with my leather jacket and favorite new UGG sneakers (see #6) for a comfy everday look.


3. Beauty Counter Tint Skin Foundation

I really dislike shopping for makeup. Don't get me wrong -- I like makeup and wear it, but shopping for it? Not so much. So of course I was pretty bummed when I found out that my favorite foundation that I've worn for the past 7 years was being discontinued. I have very dry skin and find most foundations look and feel cakey. Then I discovered Beauty Counter's Tint Skin in Linen - thanks to my friend Rachel and sis in law Meredith. I love it!!! Super soft and silky. You can layer it to add more coverage. Gives your skin that natural dewey look. Plus it has hyaluranic acid serum in it, which I hear is the fountain of youth. ;-)


4. Jesus Today by Sara Young

This sweet little devotional, Jesus Today: Experience Hope Through His Presence, is one I have read and re-read many times. It's always on my nightstand and encourages my soul. 


5. MaskCara Iluminator

This is a fun little makeup discovery! Soft and subtle MaskCara Liquid Illuminator brightens eyes and adds youthful gleam - and with the circles under my eyes - boy do I need it! :-)


6. UGG Jemma Sneakers

I am a pretty casual girl and these adorable and COMFORTABLE UGG Jemma Quilted Sneakers are on my feet almost everyday! I snagged them in matte black and gray - they still have a few left in gray & other colors!!  Get them before they're gone. I wear mine with cuffed skinny jeans, leather moto jacket and blanket scarf. Hubby says they're his favorite shoes EVER, so I think I scored on these. ;-)

#7. DoTerra On Guard Oil

OnGuard Protective Blend, a clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus and rosemary blend is always running in my diffusor. Makes my house smell amazing while keeping the germs at bay. Love it!

And here are my favorite PEOPLE!! The most important "things" in life are in this picture. :)

 So, what are your favorite things?!
