It seems I have won another blog award - this one the "Stylish Blogger Award." Thank you, Shawna Riley! The rules require that I list seven facts about myself; however, I did that just a few days ago. So, just to show just how stylish I really am, I decided to list seven of my Ultimate Favorite Things. Hey, if Oprah can do it, so can I! Here goes.
1. Olay Quench Daily Lotion Plus Shimmer with Cocoa Butter
This is my favorite moisturizer of all time. It leaves my skin soft, smooth, and shimmery. I love me some glitter.
2. Starbucks Tazo Iced Chai Tea Latte
Black tea infused with cardamom, cinnamon and black pepper added to milk (I prefer soy milk) and ice. In the wintertime, I order the same beverage, only hot. Dee-licious!
3. Benefit Big Beautiful Eyes Palette
The most expensive item on my list, this little kit is worth every penny. It includes everything you need to create perfectly contoured eyes: primer, base shadow, contour shadow, liner shadow, and two brushes. Suitable for everyday.
I am big on hand sanitizer, but it contains alcohol, which is very drying to my already dry, aging hands. This is the perfect solution: hand sanitizer that moisturizes. I keep a tube in my purse and a tube in my piano studio. Genius.
5. Old Navy Flip Flops
At $3.50 a pair or 2 pairs for $5, I dream of owning a pair in every color (and living someplace where I can wear nothing but flip flops).
Not only for blondes, these products protect my hard-earned hair color and hairlights. Lathers up delightfully and makes my hair soft and shiny. Smells good, too.
I never met a Nonni's Biscotti that I didn't instantly fall in love with. They satisfy my urge for both crunchy and chocolaty and all for just over 100 calories. I have paired them with both my morning coffee and my evening pinot noir with equally satisfying results.
Seriously, folks. These are products I truly love, that I use frequently, if not daily. Are any of them your favorites, too? Did I leave out anything that you absolutely cannot live without?
The rules of the Stylish Blogger Award also require that I pass the award on to five blogging buddies. Here are the winners:
1. Lisa Ann of Kicked, Cornered, Bitten and Chased
2. Patti of Patti Nielson
3. S.M. of An Author's Journey
4 EEV of Eev's Blog
5. Vanessa of Vanessa K. Eccles
These are wonderful blogs, written with much love and offering something for everyone. I hope you will stop by and say hello!
Again, here are the rules:
1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share seven random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 5 new-found blogging buddies.
4. Contact the winners to congratulate them.
Finally, don't forget that TOMORROW is our online book discussion of Harper Lee's To Kill A Mockingbird. I may be up into the wee hours, but I am determined to finish! I hope many of you will stop by and share your thoughts. Until then, happy reading!
