Favorite Things 2016

  1.  Breville Juicerscreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-11-50-45-am

After watching ‘FAT, SICK AND NEARLY DEAD’ Steve and I decided to start juicing regularly.  Not only is this juicer amazing, it makes us feel amazing too!  Our favorite lemonade recipe: 4 Granny Smith Apples & 1 Lemon = YUMMMMMMY!


2.  Weleda Salt Toothpastescreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-11-54-58-am

When FoodBabe.com uncovered the carcinogens in just about every mainstream toothpaste, including TOM’S, I thought this would be worth a shot.  It was worth it!  We are hooked.  Not only is it better at cleaning, it makes your breath fresher, longer.


3.  Gilmore Girlsscreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-11-58-31-am

After this series came out with new episodes, I figured it had to be good enough to have done that.  So I’ve been binging through this winter weather on Gilmore Girls and loving every minute!  Perfect for every girl who calls her Mom her best friend.


4.  Amazon Primescreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-12-04-41-pm

In addition to purchasing a lot of our gear for Asia from Amazon, it’s been a go to for just about all of my online shopping.  Prime includes free shipping, movies and tv shows, so it’s definitely worth the money.  You can even send flowers through Amazon – total bonus!


5.  Anastasia Dip Brow

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-12-06-27-pmBeing blonde, I have to fill in my eyebrows or look like ‘night of the living dead’.  This stuff is fantastic!  Not only does it look natural, but it stays on ALL day!  An item I couldn’t live without on our Asia trip.  Nothing else compares.


6.  TIM FERRIS Podcastscreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-12-14-46-pm

This guy is the king of being productive.  Known as the human experiment, he has opened my mind to so many new products, ideas, and ways of doing things.  Check out his best seller ‘The 4 Hour Work Week’.


7.  Chrysler Town & Country Mini Vanscreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-12-18-02-pmYep, you heard me right, I said mini van!  Since my BMW was totaled by a drunk driver (at 3pm in the afternoon by the way), Mom lent us her fabulous van until we could pick out a new car.  I don’t have kids and find this vehicle tremendous.  It has SO much space, great pick up, ALL of the amenities I could ever want AND I get some street cred from the other moms in the parking lot.  Can’t say that Steven will officially cross over and buy a van, but it sure is something I suggest to everyone now.  Special thanks to my amazing Mom for giving us the best loaner ever!

8.  Sirius XMscreen-shot-2016-12-21-at-5-02-14-pmAnother bonus to using the incredible mini van is Sirius XM radio!  There is ALWAYS something ‘good’ to listen to.  My favorite channels are Howard Stern 100 and 101 <— don’t judge 😉



9.  Qalo Wedding Band

screen-shot-2016-12-21-at-12-20-37-pmI wore this during our trip to Asia and just can’t seem to take it off.  It is beyond comfortable and I love the simplistic style.  Goes great with my Fitbit BLAZE watch too! I feel like inspector gadget getting text messages on my watch.



10.  LOLE Winter Coat


This is the warmest coat I have ever owned, outside of my furs.  The craftsmanship, fit and attention to detail is immediately apparent when you put this coat on.
