Favorite Things of 2013

 Melissa from 320 Sycamore is hosting her annual Favorite Things party. It's kind of like Oprah's favorite things but much more practical for us thrifty people. I thought it would be fun to put together my own list for 2013. So sit back and grab a cup of cocoa (don't forget the marshmallows) and enjoy my favorite things of 2013.
Fresh Balsam 14.5 oz. 3-Wick Candle - Slatkin & Co. - Bath & Body Works

One of my favorite things during the holiday season is a Fresh Balsam candle from Bath and Body Works. It is has the best smell and it just reminds you of Christmas trees. 

Lip Shimmer

I love Burt's Bees lip shimmer. It is perfect for the winter and summer months and has a hint of color. My favorite shade is watermelon.

I love Method cleaning products and I was so excited to find Hollyberry all-purpose cleaner this year. I love the fresh scent and it is safe to use around my daughter.

I received this DKNY as mother's day present this year. I love that the watch isn't too sporty or too dressy. It goes great with a sweatshirt or a night on the town.

Kick Boot Jean - Super Dark Indigo

My favorite jeans are from American Eagle. They have so many different styles and you can get them in any cut or length. I have a terrible time finding jeans that are long enough. I am never disappointed with American Eagle's selection.

Let us create a photobook for you-instantly

I don't have a lot of time to scrapbook and I want a way to keep my daughter's pictures organized and documented. I love to use Shutterfly to create my photo books. I have been able to get a few FREE hardcover photo books throughout the year. They have tons of different designs and I am never disappointed with the quality. Also, a lot of times around November to December they offer free Christmas cards. You just have to pay shipping. 

I love China Glaze nail polish. I can usually get a week's worth of wear out of it. My favorite color is Ruby Pumps. It reminds me of Dorothy's ruby red slippers from the Wizard of Oz. :) It's the perfect color for the Holidays.

I also love the sequin tank from Old Navy. It looks great under a cardigan and perfect for any holiday party. Also, the tank is priced under $20. 
Tinker Bell's World

My mom started a tradition of buying Hallmark ornaments for me every Christmas as a little girl. I wanted to continue the tradition with my daughter. And this year was the first year she was old enough to go pick out her own ornament. I wasn't surprised that she picked Tinker Bell! I love looking at the ornaments from all of the past years.

I am not sure if I will get another blog post up between now and Christmas. So, I want to wish you and your Family a very Merry and Blessed Christmas!

  1. Great list! I have the fresh balsam candle on my list as well, and have one burning as I type! Merry Christmas!

  3. Great list! I love this link up party -- its such a great way to find out about new stuff. Merry Christmas!

  4. Great list! I really like that tank and just the very idea of it. You could put that with a cardigan, a denim jacket, or anything and look just a little snazzier this time of year. :)
