My Favorite Things ******Third edition*****

I think every woman has to learn through the years what works and what doesn't for her and her home. I have things that I just so fall in love with. I want to share these items with you all and see if you have used them and if you love them as much as I do or would you consider using them. I am not getting compensated in anyway for this. These are things that work, or perform well out of a sea of others that I have used and been disappointed in. So without further delay here we go.......drum roll.........

1.  Turbie Twist

I love these things, so much so that I pack them when I travel, they make a perfect little gift for that special girlfriend who has everything...put one in with your favorite shampoo, conditioner and hairspray ...and you have a gift any girl would love.  They don't slip. They hold your hair out of your way while you are applying makeup or treatments.  You no longer have to try and balance that huge towel on your head.  The elastic loop holds the twist secure until you are ready to style your hair.  I just love them.  I usually order mine from QVC and I get 6 for about $28 dollars.  Bed Bath and Beyond has them too just not all the fun prints I've found at QVC.  Check them out.

2.  Life Is Good Snuggle Socks

These socks are the best for lounging around the house.  They are so soft and they just cuddle your feet.  I've purchased these for my kids, my Grandchildren and even the Hubz loves his pair.  They are so comfortable and they hold up well. Another good gift idea.  Tuck them in a gift bag with shower gel and lotion.  About $10 dollars.  Sometimes you can find them at TJ Maxx if you are extremely lucky.  Or just order from


Sebastian Shaper Zero Gravity hair spray

I have never liked hair spray.  I know it is a necessary part of life if you are a woman, but it always makes me choke and I feel makes my hair look stiff and like it isn't touchable....until...I found this product.  I used to use the regular Shaper spray and it was OK.... but I love this product. It holds your hair just enough, but it feels light and not sticky at all.  Give it a try, let me know what you think.

Until next time.....

Remember to hug someone too tight.  Be kind to one another.

  7. I think you will love hair used to be very long and thick and they worked great! The elastic loop in the back holds the twist of the towel secure while you are doing make up etc....I wish I had invented them!
