Friday Favorites (5/29)

Happy Friday! This week, I have some new things and an old favorite to share with you.  I look forward to reading comments about what is on your favorites list this week!   The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing The title of this book is very suitable because the book truly is life-changing- and I imagine that it would have an even greater impact on someone who is disorganized or has accumulated a lot of clutter.  The basic concept is that we should only keep items in our home that bring...

Friday Favorites (5/8)

Here are this week’s favorites! As always, I’d love to read about what products, shows, clothing (or whatever!) you’ve been enjoying lately, so be sure to leave a comment. LaCroix Sparkling Water in Coconut The LaCroix website calls this “summer in a can”, and I’d say that is a pretty accurate statement.  It is supposedly also a really good drink mixer, so I need to get a jump on that soon!  I’ve been drinking a can of it every evening (without alcohol) while I am making dinner, and it somehow takes...

The Beauty Detox Power & mushroom stuffed peppers recipe

The Beauty Detox Power & mushroom stuffed peppers recipe

I’ve been a fan of Kimberly Snyder for years now.  You can even see some of my old posts about her previous two books here and here. When I heard that she was coming out with a new book called The Beauty Detox Power, I was really excited, but I also wondered if it would just be a repeat of what I have already read in her other books. But within just the first few pages, I realized that The Beauty Detox Power was actually very different.     Kimberly focuses on the mind body connection in this book and really gets into the...

(Visit The Mini Skirt for my mommy favorites.) Happy first day of May! I am so glad that many of you enjoyed my post about natural cleaning methods and products.  If you’d like to see more posts like that one in the future, I’ll be more than happy to deliver.

Burt’s Buzz MT was away on business earlier in the week, and I figured it would be the perfect time to finally watch this documentary. I cannot go into too...

Happy Friday! I have some beauty, fitness, home care, food, and fashion favorites for you today, so let’s get started…   First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Pure Mineral Sunscreen Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 40 This was a gift from my friend Michele, and I really owe her for introducing me to it.  A lot of sunscreens don’t absorb well into the skin and give off that Casper-ish white cast. This one absorbs right in, and the bonus is that is doubles as a moisturizer.  It doesn’t make my face at all greasy, yet it is...

Friday favorites & a giveaway!

Happy Friday! I am really excited about my favorites and the giveaway I am running, so I am just going to jump right on into it. Beauty Counter Tint Skin Complexion Coverage I like to wear a tinted moisturizer during the spring and summer months, and after hearing rave reviews about this one from Beauty Counter, I went ahead and ordered it.  I absolutely understand the hype now.  It reminds me of the IT Cosmetics CC Cream (which I love) with a lighter coverage (although it is buildable).  It is hydrating but not even remotely greasy, and it...
