Just in time for holiday shopping, these are a few of my favorite things. Yes, this year has much less Kate Spade and a lot more practical items, but hey, things change. And seriously, do I need to suggest Kate Spade, it is just a given! I wish I could be like Oprah and give them all to you, shoot, I wish I could give them all to me!
Heluvua Good Greek Yogurt Dip (in French Onion)
Ok, so you are thinking this is an odd one to start off with and true, however, this is the best discovery I have made recently and I want everyone to know about it! It tastes just like chip dip and is only 40 calories! I cannot get enough! Maybe not the best gift, but great for your holiday parties or just to have around for the holidays.
Hand Held Shower Head
There is pretty much nothing I love more these days than a steaming hot shower! Having a good shower head is key to a good shower.
Yes, you can tell it is winter and I am a cold person because right behind my hot shower I could not live without my fireplace! Have a remote control gas fireplace is awesome because I have a fire 15 times a day and I never have to clean up or build a fire. I simply turn it on when I want it and turn it off when I don’t (which is only when I’m leaving the house)!
This thing is like my best friend. Yes, I know, another cold weather item, but it is just so cozy and warm and fuzzy and almost all need. Give me my sherpa blanket, my fire, a cup of tea and a book and I’m just about as happy as I can get.
Life changing as a parent!
Asos Maternity Clothes
OMG, finally cute, affordable maternity clothes. I honestly thought this did not exist!
It is November, time for Oprah’s Favorite Things! And if Oprah can do it why not the rest of us right? Also known as “what to give any woman in your life for the holidays”. So take note gents, these are some great gift ideas.

- I LOVE tights. Tights might be my favorite thing. Ok well, probably not but I do love tights. A note on tights. You are never too old for tights! You are always too young for panty hose. Throw away your panty hose, get some cute tights. I’ll get off my soap box now.
In celebration of my 100th post I thought I would share a few of my favorite things. I wish I could share them Oprah style and give them all away, but alas, I’ll just have to tell you about them so you can go get them yourself.
