A few of my favorite things....


           I don't know about you but there are certain things in my life that I just can not live
              without....Especially in the Summer time. I went shopping this morning and
              restocked some of my favorite must have's. What are your favorite goodies?

       1) my all time favorite perfume...CHANCE CHANEL

       2) ESTEE LAUDER...skin lotion, even skintone illuminator and eye cream.
           I truly believe in these products. I don't have a single wrinkle. HA.

       3) Laura Mercier....tinted moisturizer. You can just put this on and walk out into the
        world.

       4) Urban Decay....Naked eyeshadows. Perfect Summer colors.

       5) Tory Burch.....sandals are a must have and I'm addicted.

         Tell me what your favorite products and must haves are that you can not do without.

  23. I too posted my essentials for summer today. And, I must agree with you, I live in any type of flip flops throughout summer here in Florida and Tory Burch are a must, I also love Trina Turk's Bollywood Sandal. Very pretty for those warm summer evenings with a cute summer dress, or just jeans. Love your post, stop by some time.

  33. Hmm, my must have summer thing? Probably a good hat. It's been sooo sunny and hot and it's more bearable with the sun off your face. And hats are cute!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Okay, I'm definitely getting some tinted moisturizer as soon as I can. I use moisturizer every day that has SPF in it, but I hear the tinted moisturizer is great! Thanks for sharing!! I love my Bare Minerals makeup too!

  35. what fun to share favorites. My skin care line of choice is Obagi C. I have really noticed a difference in my skin tone and texture. I love bare minerals makeup. I don't have a signature perfume scent. I tend to like florals in the summer and orientals in the colder months!!!!

  61. Sad that I've never tried ANY of your favorite things...perhaps a shopping spree is in order! I love EOS lip balm (or really any lip balm/gloss for that matter), Estee Lauder's Bronze Goddess perfume (this is the current replacement for my prior fave which was Tom Ford for Estee Lauder Azure Soleil perfume), my Kitchen Aid mixer and my step stool (I'm barely topping out at 5 feet, so my step stool helps me reach EVERYTHING! :)
