Some Of My Favorite Things

There are a couple of things I find that I simply can not live without these days.   My morning Starbucks is one of them.  I order a Venti, half-caf, 2 pump, non-fat, no whip Mocha.  Most days the Baristas get the order right.  Way too often I get a full mocha beverage (6 pumps) or I get a (gag) white mocha.  I really hate those and will go back to have them correct it.

Last night I started to think about the other things that I love.  This excludes family, religion, and politics... I obviously love and have opinions about these but they are highly personal and not for sharing :-)  But THESE I must share:

I LOVE this product:

This sets me back about $144.00 but will last me about 3 months.  It makes my skin glow.  I've always wanted glowy skin...  Some people feel a tingle after they apply it, but I have not.


While I love the entire Mary Kay Miracle Set, I love the TimeWise® Day Solution Sunscreen SPF 25* the most.  When I apply it over the C E Ferulic it just adds to the dewy glow that I love so much.  It's about $30.00 every 3 months.


I sometimes apply a primer and foundation, but mostly I just use this Revision Intellishade SPF 45 Tinted Moisturizer.  It's only about $48.00 and it's MAGIC!  It goes on smooth and it really does adjust to my specific coloring after a few minutes.

I really love the way my skin looks these days - and really for the first time ever.  I'm 45 now and love my skin!  Yes, I have wrinkles, freckles, and the occasional acne and I am starting to see some sag in my jaw and throat area, but these products have truely helped to improve my skin tone and reduce fine lines.  After the twins were born, I seriously don't think I washed my face for a year.  I was so depressed at how I looked.  I now look forward to my nightly skin routine and I don't think I look too much like my age.

Sleeping.  I've always had some problems here.  When I was pregnant, my doctor prescribed Ambien to help me sleep.  I loved those little pills, but I only got about 4-5 hours of good sleep.  Once I woke up, that was it.  No going back to sleep. 

About 6 months ago I discoved this:


I drink it every night.  At first I drank it because I liked the taste and I like something hot before I go to bed.  Then I started sleeping all night long and, if I woke up, I was able to go back to sleep.  I am addicted to this tea!
