Ten on the 10th: These are a few of my favorite things...

I use this everyday. It will feel a little sticky at first, but once you go over it with your straightener, you're hair will look so shiny and feel so smooth. Just make sure you hold it at a good distance when you spray so that it covers your hair well and doesn't spray too much in one spot. It's perfect for making beach waves with the straightener too- it leaves your hair with frizz-less, shiny waves. I either by it at TJ Maxx or off of Amazon.

Clarisonic Mia
Matt's mom got this for me for Christmas a couple of years ago, and since then, I use this every. single. night. in the shower. It's almost like you're giving yourself a daily mini facial. It has a timer that runs for 60 seconds and then shuts off. If I every have any "friends" starting to form on my face, I use this guy, and they go right away. I love the sample cleanser that comes with it, but after it ran out, I just used my MK cleanser or Microderm Refine step on the days I'm doing microdermabrasion.

Philips Sonicare Electric Toothbrush
Like the Mia, I use this everyday too. It makes my teeth feel like they've just been cleaned by the dentist every time I use it. And since I'm not the best about actually going to the dentist, that's probably a good thing. Like the Mia, it has a timer that shuts off after 2 minutes (which seems like a crazy long time to brush one's teeth... I can't say that I make it through the whole 2 minutes every time). I use it with Crest Glamorous White toothpaste- it is my new fave!

I recently started using the entire Mary Kay Timewise Miracle Set again (I got a little lazy with my skincare steps for a while), and I have to say, since adding back in the day and night solution (the two little bottles on the right), I am noticing a big difference in the look and feel of my skin. And for an anti-aging line, you really can't beat the price. If you're interested, click here to see how you can try the full-size or trial-size set it at a discount!

Lululemon Wunder Under Pant
Matt got me these  for my birthday this year, and I LOVE them! I wear them for working out, walking Tally in this Fall weather, and as leggings for "real clothes". They fit perfectly and are super comfortable. The sizing start for ittty-bitty people (XXS = Size 2), so make sure you follow the sizing chart when ordering.

I love love love this scent from Bath and Body works, but they're already moving it out to make room for their Holiday scents. Sad. They do still have the deep cleansing hand soap (on sale for $3!) Yesterday, I bought the Caramel Cinnamon Swirl to replace my pumpkin one- hopefully it will smell just as good! I also love the Cinnamon and Clove Buds. It smells like Thanksgiving and Christmas. :) And right now, all of their 3-wick candles are on sale 2 for $22! Plus, you can use two different coupon codes from retailmenot to get an even better discount.

Stila Color Correcting Cream
I bought this a few months ago (thanks to a Sephora gift card from one of my students- they spoil me!) and have really enjoyed using it. I wear it by itself on days that I'm not wearing any makeup (and after someone yesterday guessed my age was 22, I may have more of those no-makeup days), and wear it as a base for my mineral powder on other days. I love the feel, coverage, and scent- very clean-smelling. I use warm, but they also have 5 other shades.

Two of my friends recently started selling Arbonne, and even though I'm an MK girl, I have to say I've loved the products they've let me try! My favorite is this foundation primer. It feels like silk and keeps  your makeup on all day. If you want to give it a try, email me {} so I can put you in touch with one of them!

Starbucks Cinnamon Dolce Latte is my FAVORITE drink. The best part is, it's not seasonal anymore, so you can get it whenever you want! All you PSL people, I've tried to make myself like that drink, but it is just plain gross to me. I know of one other person who agrees- and she wrote a hilarious post about it! Check it out here. And try this drink the next time your at Starbucks! It will change your life. Or at least have some other less-significant impact on your day.

Anna's lip balm is my favorite! My favorite is the grape scent. It smells great, feels so smooth, and is made from all-natural products. You can read more about her story here. She is going to pick up her sweet baby from Africa THIS month!!
