"These Are a Few of My Favorite Things"

While relaxing over Christmas break, I discovered some wonderful products during my shopping adventures!


1. Flowering Cherry stationary by Galison New York. My family has a thing for thank-you cards (I get calls if they don't receive them within two weeks of the event), and I found these at Barnes and Noble. They are adorable, not too frilly, and reasonably priced. There are 10 of them in the pack, just the perfect number for me!  And it comes in an adorable box matching the stationary that can be used for future decorating experiments. 

2. Tresor "In Love" perfume by Lancome. It's smells amazing! I am one of those people that likes to have a signature scent, and when they discontinued my original favorite, JMC by Jessica McClintock, I was lost for about a year in regards to my scent identity. But I found this and I love it more than my first love! It smells fresh and clean, with a hint of fruity. It smells girly, but not nauseatingly so. It's oil-based so it lasts all day, it and is never overwhelming unless you apply it like a prepubescent boy. It's very reasonably priced for a high-end perfume.

3. Bio-oil. I read about this gem in Marie Claire (my magazine/addiction of choice). It is "specialist skincare for scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging skin, and dehydrated skin." It is an oil, so make sure you rub it in well and don't use too much, but it's a light oil. So  as long as you give it about 30 seconds to dry it won't get on your clothes at all or make you feel oily. And it really does treat everything it says it does! It takes a couple weeks to work its magic, but when it works, it works well! I have almost every ailment on the list (scars from years of sports, uneven skin tone from life-guarding, etc.) and all have improved drastically! And make sure you apply it every day! The bottle says twice a day, but I think that's over kill.

Let me know if y'all want to know anything else about these products!
