The SOFTEST chenille sweater I have ever owned!

I have to give credit to The Sweetest Thing blog for this one, as her site introduced me to this sweater and this is her picture wearing it (I ran out of time to get a good one but she wears it well!).

Express nailed it with this one. You could cozy up in this any day! I love it! And I know you....or a loved one.....will too!

Neals Yard Remedies ( aka NYR) Organic!!!

I have been SO excited to share this one with you because these are HANDS DOWN some of my all time favorite skin care products.

Ladies, working out can cause some problems with your skin...getting sweaty....clogged pores and especially if you wear make-up when you workout (hey it happens...who washes it off after work before getting their sweat on?)

I went through a bad period with my skin a few years ago and my cousin introduced me to this line of products that are incredible.

The most important thing to know about Neal’s Yard Remedies is that it says No to nasties. It is an ethical, organic, natural based product company with over 30 years of experience and knowledge utilizing the best of nature for your skincare needs. The products never contain harmful ingredients such as synthetic fragrances, parabens or mineral oils to name but a few.

There are different product lines for different skin types and conditions. One of my favourite products is the Purifying Palmarosa Mattifier. Consultant Dr. Gillian Hunter explained to me, "This is like dry shampoo for your face. It helps ‘soak up’ excess oil on your skin (avoiding it going into your hairline) and creates a good base for your moisturiser and make up." I use both the mattifier and the cleanser on a daily basis!

An Amazon Fire Stick!

I debated for the longest time whether to get this thing, thinking I wouldn't really use it, and I literally LOVE everything about it.

If you have Amazon Prime you get a lot of great benefits, but my FAVORITE aspect of this Fire Stick is access to Beachbody on "netflix of fitness" streaming service that I use to access 1000's of home workouts, a cooking show and more!

I can access this on my phone using an app, on my computer or on my Amazon Fire Stick on any TV I hook it up to!

SO handy!

Do you have a Fire Stick? Do you love it? Not really use it? What are some cool things I should know about but maybe don't?

FYI...these make great christmas gifts!! Get yours at:

Another apology because I'm a day behind again! 🙈😂
I had the opportunity to spend this past weekend with my team. A girls slumber party fun filled, crazy, hilarious, bonding weekend with plenty of laughs, wine and I hope you'll forgive me for another double blog post today to make up for missing yesterday!!

This is one of my ALL TIME favorite products.....Elemis S.O.S. Emergency Serum.

My cousin introduced this to me years ago as a way to help heal my damaged skin. I don't use it all the time, but on occasions where I feel my skin needs a little TLC and when I'm on vacation and exposed to the sun, this serum is an absolute life savor. I use it at night as an overnight blemish treatment and my little skin "stress reliever"! It's a little pricey but worth every penny and lasts me for ages since I use it sporadically!

You can find it at Nordstrom here:

Ladies...the BEST leggings in the freaking WORLD!

My 12 days of FitMAS continues with legitimately the best thing since sliced bread!

I'm telling you, I was SO skeptical until I tried them! But SPANX has it GOING ON!!!!!

Not only are these long enough for my 5'10 frame, but without a doubt the most comfortable leggings I have ever worn....with a fun leather look! Super soft, super comfortable and I cannot rave enough about them.

They are a little pricey, but worth every penny. GET THEM! You won't regret it!
