A Few Of My Favorite Things {This Week}…

{A few of my favorite things this week that I either just discovered or already know I couldn’t do without}

1.     Initial Necklace – I recently was on the hunt for an initial necklace for my sister for her first Mother’s Day.  I kept going back to the same plain, dainty style that I wear around my own neck and have for the last 19 months.  It is such a simple piece, but it blends seamlessly into every outfit I wear, fancy or laid back, and when I run my thumb of the imprint of the letter “E” each day, I am reminded of my daughter.

2.     Cut-Off Shorts – There was a time where I would have been mortified to be seen in a pair of distressed denim, especially ones that were cut-off.  But in the last handful of years, the look has not only grown on me, but it is a constant in my weekly wardrobe.  It can be so casual, yet chic, and this short version is perfect for the warmer weather.  I scooped these up in a small boutique about five years ago and have been wearing them ever since.  They are super soft from all the years of wear and the fringes have faded and changed over time in just the right way.

3.     They’re Real Mascara – I featured this mascara on my blog a month or so back in a beauty edition that can be seen here.  I ran out of a tube the other day and couldn’t get to Sephora fast enough to replace it.  The only mascara I will probably ever use again.  It is that good.

4.     Cocoa Butter Stick – You know when you find one of those products that you use so often you have multiples, so you never have to go without?  One in the diaper bag, one in the console of the car, the office drawer, the pocket of the coat worn most frequently in the winter…I use this Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick every single day on chapped hands and lips.  The smell is one of my favorites and the dose of vitamin E keeps my normally dry skin super soft.
