My Favorites

I'm always asking people for advice on where they get things, where to eat, etc. So I thought I would post some of my favorites. No one ever answers surveys that I post, but maybe some people will do this? You can obviously change the categories, but I wanted to share my Favorites with my Friends!

JEANS: NY & Company. They have the perfect stretch and color, and they come in short, regular, and long lengths. I get the short for flats and regulars for boots.

NAILS: I have an INCREDIBLE manicurist named Judy Mason. She has her own private shop called BDazzled with Judy. It's amazing! Ask me if you want her number. It's by appointment only and I LOVE that.

HAIR: Currently going to Morgan at Gloss. He does a GREAT job!

MASCARA: Anything by Rimmel London. It's cheap and at drugstores, but I can't beat it. I'm currently using the kind in the red tube (I don't remember the name.)

FREEZER FOOD: Ok, folks. I'm going to be honest. QVC has the GREATEST frozen food out there! And they deliver it right to your door! Right now I'm waiting on chicken dumplings (they're called gyoza at Japanese restaurants), called Pot Stickers. They also serve them at Cheesecake Factory. I'm telling you, we have had unbelievable hot dogs, turkey, and steaks from qvc.com. :)

YOGURT: Yoplait Whips are my new favorite thing. It's like a mousse texture. I hate yogurt that has clumps of fruit in it, but this is such an amazing yogurt. You MUST try it!

FICTION BOOK: For a Christian series, you need to read the "Ashley Stockingdale" series by Kristin Billerbeck. You WILL laugh out loud. I will bet my life on it! Also, if you haven't read Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers, drop everything and go get it. Life changing! In the non-Christian arena, I'm currently reading Phillipa Gregory about Tudor England. But not everyone is interested in that!

CONTACT SOLUTION: Weird category, I know, but this made all the difference in the comfort of my contacts. I use Clear Care. It's in a purplish/blue box, and has a strange little case for your contacts, but it makes them SO much more comfortable.

I'm always looking for a quality lipstick, hair product, etc. So if anyone wants to share their favorite things, post!

I will definitely do this on my blog. I love hearing about brands, etc. Where do you get that contact solution and does it REALLY make a difference? My contacts are driving me NUTS right now! I would love to find a way to make them better. My right one feels like it is *stuck* to my eyeball. It is very uncomfortable!

I love that you did this post! I am so VERY interested in food from QVC AND the contact solution! I have just given up on contacts but maybe this would be my answer! :) Thanks!

I have read your blog before and saw how you commented on the Kristen Billerbeck books. I started reading the Ashley Stockingdale series and got hooked. I finished all 3 in a couple of weeks, thank you.
Makeup- Bobbie Brown. It costs a litte more but the eyeshadow goes a LONG way if you get the mattes in the glass case. The eyeshadow lasts all day, and it never fades! The lipstick and glosses are fabulous too!

Hey there!
Thanks for the tip about the jeans, I must try them! I have a pair of James Jeans, and some Banana Republic Jeans that I really like. They are pricey but hey, when you get to be my age you just buy what looks good on you--HA!
I use Biolage shampoo and conditioner---love it!
I love Bobbie Brown eyeshadow and lip gloss. I also like Bare Minerals lip gloss. Sharon is the one who got me started on all of this---she is the make up queen!!
I am going to have to check out the QVC thing---I had no idea they have frozen food---I am all about convenience!
I use cheap mascara too---Maybelline in the black tube, can't remember the name.
For books, I love Jan Karon's Mitford series--I have read them all. They just take your mind off of everything and you can sort of relax and read at the same time.
Well, that is some of my tips, thanks for sharing yours.
