1. Beauty Blender
My mom gave me a beauty blender for Christmas and it took me 5 months to actually give it a try! I used to use a foundation brush every day and was happy with it but THIS is AMAZING!! I will probably never use my foundation brush again!
2. Batiste Dry Shampoo
I love dry shampoo! It's definitely a hair product staple in my bathroom! Since I usually only wash my hair every 2-3 days, I need it on those off-days to keep the greasies away. My favourite brand is Batiste- it's cheap too! I usually find it at Winners for $7 a can and I try to stock up since I do go through it every 6-8 weeks. Nothing worse than running out of your dry shampoo!
3. Soft leggings
I like comfortable pants! At home I'm always in leggings or lulus- much easier to get down on the floor with the kids! I apparently don't take many pictures of myself wearing them though!
Here are a couple pairs that I am resisting buying...
4. Simply Protein Bars
I bought a box of these at Costco and they are great for on the go. They definitely keep me full for awhile and aren't too heavy in the tummy.
I swore I would never wear Birks- they were old lady shoes! I somehow got sucked into them last summer, probably because they are so darn comfortable! I can walk for miles in these without my feet getting sore. They do take some getting use to though- it took me a week of wearing them around the house to make sure they actually fit and I would keep them. Gizas are my favourites.
6. My new trench coat
Like Birks, I resisted the trench for awhile but finally decided that it's a wardrobe staple. The inside fabric has bicycles on it so I had to have it! I wear it almost every day to work, unless it's raining and then I wear a rain jacket with hood... like today.
Another thing I resisted for awhile but finally caved because our previous blender was not cutting it anymore. Wow, I can't believe I waited so long to add the Vitamix into my life! It makes everything so much easier! It's an investment but considering that we use it daily, it's worth it! Great for making baby food too! Baby Bullet has nothing on this!
8. The Good Wife
Addicted to this show! I don't watch a lot of TV but this is one of my favourites!! I broke down and paid for the current season which says a lot!
9. Monthly house cleaning
It started as a couple gift certificates for various occasions- great gift idea for a new mom or busy mom! Once I went back to work, we decided that a monthly house cleaning made sense to help with the deep cleaning. Of course I still have to clean regularly, pick up after the two little tornadoes but at least I'm not spending too much time doing heavy cleaning. It definitely lightens the load.
Ashley introduced me to Moscato and a friend brought a bottle of Barefoot Moscato over on the weekend! Yum yum!! I will be adding this to my long liquor store list!
Do you have any favourites that you think I should try?
