Hi, friends! With another month almost behind us (what?!) it’s time for another round of Stuff We Love. Here are just a few of the things that have grabbed my attention in the past few weeks. As always, none of this is sponsored — they are just items that we own, use, and LOVE!
Disclosure: some of these items include affiliate links, which just means that I get a small percentage of the sale price if you purchase through my link (at no extra cost to you). Thanks!
L’Oreal Paris Voluminous Butterfly Mascara. Consider me your personal mascara product reviewer. I feel like I try just about every formula out there, so I figured that this one was worth a mention. It’s my current go-to. I’ve also tried new options from FLOWER and Rimmel recently, but I was not impressed. This formula/brush combo manages to lengthen and curl my eyelashes, which I love…and it doesn’t leave big chunks like some of the other “volumizing” mascaras!
Scrub Daddy The Scratch Free Sponge. My mom’s friend, Fredda, sent me this sponge. It was originally featured on the show “Shark Tank,” and it’s really cool! It’s a scrubbing sponge that’s designed for cleaning hands, so between the gardening work, the craft projects, and the outdoor maintenance that goes on around here, I know that it will get a lot of use. It’s made with a special foam that has a porous texture that’s great for scrubbing, yet gentle on skin. The foam softens when wet, and it has a smooth side for general hand washing as well as a zigzag side that works well for cleaning under your fingernails.
Chobani Flip. It’s not often that I share Keith’s loves on these lists, but this product deserves a mention. Why? Because the Choban Flip yogurt has officially converted my husband into a Greek Yogurt LOVER. I’ve tried to get him to eat Greek yogurt for years, but it wasn’t until Chobani sent me a huge box of their new Flip flavors to try that Keith finally became a believer! We have continued to buy them each week with our own money, and Keith takes one to work for lunch or snack almost every day. It’s so convenient to have the fun toppings right inside the same container! He loves the Key Lime flavor (among others), but my favorite is the Pumpkin Harvest Crisp (no surprise, right?). It’s low-fat Greek-style pumpkin yogurt with pie crust pieces, glazed pumpkin seeds, and pecans. Basically, it’s dessert (with a lot of protein)!
LOFT Relaxed Turtleneck Sweater. This is my wear-every-day sweater for the season. I have it in Aztec Gold, which works well with my skin tone. If that’s not your “thing,” it’s also available in black and a few other colors. It’s soft, comfy, and WARM. Plus, Loft always has good sales so you probably won’t have to pay full price for it!
OxiClean® Laundry Stain Remover Spray. I know, you’re just jumping out of your seat with excitement over a stain remover, right?! But seriously, this deserves a mention on the list because approximately 30 seconds before I sat down to type up this post, Casey came screaming into the room with a bloody nose (not unusual). He was still wearing his nice khakis from school, and of course they had blood all over the legs. I was shocked when I sprayed this stain remover on the blood spots, rinsed them in warm water, and all of the blood came off immediately. I didn’t even have to try hard! This stuff instantly earned a permanent spot n my laundry room cabinet. If you have dirty kids (or husbands), you NEED this!
See’s Halloween Chocolates. Aunt Bee sent us a care package full of See’s Halloween treats earlier this month. My favorites were the Orange and Chocolate Wafers and the Orange Twists, while Keith and the boys loved the Chocolate Marshmallow Jack-O-Lanterns. I know it’s probably too late for the Halloween-themed goodies, but I wanted to mention them because (1) See’s Candy (in any form) is incredible; and (2) they will have some equally delicious Christmas treats to look out for. Such a great gift idea!
Yankee Trio Candles. It’s no secret that I love a good scented candle (especially at this time of year), so I was really excited when my friend Mollie gave me these earlier this month. Each candle has three different layers with a separate scent in each layer…so it’s like 3 candles in 1! I’ve been burning the Autumn Trio recently, but as soon as December rolls around I will light the Winter Festival Holiday Trio candle (with layers of Sparkling Cinnamon, Christmas Cookie, and Balsam & Cedar). These would be great hostess gifts during the holiday season.
So there you have it! A random sampling of some really great STUFF! Enjoy, and happy shopping!
