Random Faves

It's been a while since I've done a 'favorites' post. So here are some things that I'm loving right now.

Chocolate covered almonds
My friend Christy told me about these chocolate covered almonds from Costco. I knew they would be good... but geez. Stick these in the fridge and eat like 5 every time you walk by. (that's why they are almost gone even though I just bought them. oops)

Nutrogena Healthy Skin Moisturizer
I just got this new moisturizer because I was needing something with sunscreen (my freckles are popping). I thought I would try something with retinol. Now's the time to make sure my skin stays good, right? It says that after a week you should see results. I swear I can see a difference in my skin after only 3 days. It was maybe $12 dollars? So a little more than I would normally spend on moisturizer. But not bad for something with retinol I think.

Sugar Scrub
My sweet friends gave me this sugar scrub as a going away present. I LOVE it. It makes me want to do a scrub every single day. I think I might try and make THIS one after it's gone. Doesn't that sound fun? Who's coming over to make some with me?
I love them. My mom always planted them so maybe it just reminds me growing up. But I love them. They are just cute and happy.

Jamberry Nails
I can't believe I'm putting a picture of my crazy ugly feet on my blog. But here they are. I have never gotten so many compliments on my toes in my life than when I'm wearing these. It takes like 20 minutes to get them on (you blow dry on these little stickers). But totally worth it because they stay on forever and everyone you meet says "Wow-- cute toenails!"

And maybe this is old news... but if THIS isn't the coolest thing you've ever seen....

Great post! It's nice to know what other people's favorites are. It's easier to know what someone else really likes before trying something new because I think we all waste a lot of money on products that we don't really like and then they just go to the bottom of some random drawer. Your toenails look cute! Funny but I just polished mine yesterday. Now we're both ready for sandles.

Yes, the gotye cover totally is the coolest thing ever! Jade loves it so we've watched it about a hundred times. Also I think it may be Costco that has these chocolate macadamia clusters that are awesome. If having a container of those close by doesn't make me overweight then I don't know what will.

P.S. I loved that music video!

Ohmigosh! Your toes are the cutest things I've seen in a long time! I want these!!!! how many do you get in a pack (or at once?)

Love the almonds too! What ever you do- DO NOT get the carmel macadamia nut ones- they are the most amazing things they sell at Costco and you will eat the whole tub in one sitting- they are pure Heaven. I haven't bought them in forever because I don't want to confess to my OB at weigh in!

That was indeed a very cool video. I'll have to show Paul... but doubtless he'll already have heard of it from Dave... :)

Those almonds should be banned. They are addicting. I got invited to a jamberry nails party today. . . right now actually. . . I guess I'm not going. lol. They're cute on you though!
