Favorite Things (Part 8)

Lately, I’ve tried lots of new products and foods, so I thought it would be a perfect time to do another Favorite Things post.

Be sure to check out my previous Favorite Things posts on my Favorites page!




For years, I wondered why people went crazy over the Vitamix.  Isn’t it just like any other blender?  What made it so special?  Well, I received one for Christmas this year from my parents and…wow.  It truly is better than any other blender that I’ve ever used.  It took my frozen banana and kale and chopped those things up like it was nothing and left me with the smoothest smoothie I’ve ever had.

Skinny Pop

As you all probably know by now, I’m pretty obsessed with popcorn.  When I saw Skinny Pop at Fresh Market a week or so ago, I knew that I had to pick it up.    According to the label, there are only three ingredients- natural popcorn, sunflower oil, and salt, and it is cholesterol free, trans fat free, dairy free, peanut free, tree nut free, gluten free, and preservative free…and an answer to my prayers!   I’m actually snacking on it as I type and think that it makes for a perfect snack.  Try it!

Beauty Blender

The Beauty Blender is the coolest little gadget for applying foundation, tinted moisturizer, concealer, and even blush.  The result is the smoothest application you’ll ever get.  Since one of these guys will last for about 3-4 months, you’ll be cutting down on waste from constantly using  and disposing of those tiny drug store sponges.

Cappuccino Larabar

I’m not only obsessed with popcorn.  I’m also obsessed with Larabars.  Imagine my excitement several weeks ago when Larabar sent me their new cappuccino flavor to try!  It seriously tastes and smells exactly like cappuccino, and I love, love, love it.

Yes to Carrots Lip Gloss

Lately, I’ve been loving anything by this brand- especially their lip glosses.  They give a subtle shine without any glitter or sparkles and have nice pigment.  Plus, they are paraben free!


What are your favorite things of the moment?  Please share!

      You’ll love it! I got my mom hooked on it already. If you run it under warm water and squeeze out the excess before applying your makeup, it fluffs up, and I swear that it is just the best. I clean mine with regular face soap and it works fine. You don’t have to buy the special cleaner.

  2. I received a Vita Mix for my birthday this past fall – love that thing – makes healthy food and certainly makes my life easier in the morning:) Thanks for sharing & Have a Great Day!
