Hey all! I'm super excited to introduce Ally, from Life As I Know It as the new cohost for Favorite Things. Kylie is taking a little bit of a blogging hiatus, so Ally has graciously decided to step in. So happy to have you, Ally!
So lets get to it!
1. Rodan + Fields Soothe Line Buy It Here
I could talk for ten posts about how jacked up my skin is, but I'll spare you. Basically, I have a mix between rosacea and acne. The littlest thing, like sleeping in powder, can send my skin into a total meltdown. At the time that I ordered this line, my face was a total mess, and I was willing to try anything. Normally, I'm very skeptical of new fads, and feel that they're just that, fads. I do, honestly, feel that this is different. It is pricey, but you have a money back guarantee if you don't like it. My skin was noticeably smoother after just a few days.
2. Donut Shop Coconut Mocha K-Cups Buy it here
My sister in law got me totally hooked on these. I'm a huge coconut flavor (no actual coconut, can't stand the texture) fan. These have a strong coconut flavor without tasting like tanning lotion. Pair this with warmer weather and vanilla creamer, and I'm in heaven. Yum!
3.) Amazon Prime Try it here
Our Fedex, UPS, and mail carrier probably hate us by now. We have been ordering EVERYTHING off of Amazon Prime. Peoria doesn't have quite the variety of shopping that Indy did, so we're using Amazon Prime even more often now. I love that free, 2 day shipping is always included, along with Amazon instant video. SO worth the money.
4.) Lindsay Check it out here
Add Lindsay to my list of trash TV. I'm not ashamed. Lindsay is a docu-series on the OWN network that takes a peek into the real life of Lindsay Lohan. She is a recovering alcoholic (but still parties pretty hard), trying to get back into the acting scene, and adjusting to a new home in NYC. Warning: Your husband will find this show incredibly boring. This is best watched alone or with your girls.
5.) Dymo Label Maker buy it here
As I'm getting into the clutter part of unpacking, I'm trying to start fresh and be organized. This label maker is awesome for making binder tabs and containers appear neat and tidy. It also helps George figure out what stuff is without actually having to sort through it.
6.) Target Boat Neck Tee Buy It Here
Again, I gotta share my favorite Target tops. They are perfect for spring weather with a 3/4 length sleeve and bright prints. They're soft cotton, so you can throw them in the wash. A plain one with a dressy necklace can go from casual to dressy so easily. The best part, they're $12.99, and you can sometimes find a Cartwheel coupon to make them even cheaper.
7.) Herbal Essences Naked Cleansing Conditioner Buy It Here
This may be my favorite for the month. I've heard people talking about the "no-poo" method of skipping on the shampoo. For me, I could never NOT wash my hair. This stuff is the perfect compromise. For the days where my hair is dirty or sweaty, but doesn't have a bunch of product, the cleansing conditioner is perfect. You slather it on, leave it on for the whole shower, and rinse before you get out. It also smells like mint, and it makes you feel like you're in a spa.
8.) iHeartOrganizing Check her out here
Jen from iHeartOrganizing is a genius. I've been loving her printables, project gallery, and DIY ideas. Most of her projects are pretty inexpensive and manageable to do in a day. She recently did a month of different cleaning and organizing projects. She shared her recipes for all natural cleaners and did a step by step tutorial. Check her out!
9.) Kirkland Red Grapefruit Cups
I've recently discovered so many new Costco finds, but I think this one is my favorite. I love grapefruit, but I'm super lazy and don't want to cut out the little sections. The fruit is packed in water and has very minimal sugar. So delicious!
Now it is your turn to join the link up! What are some of your Favorite Things for May?
