Favorite Things

With the holidays upon us, I am so excited to join with a few of my Favorite Bloggers that I have personally been following for years!  I am really looking forward to sharing a handful of my favorite things - some items I use year-long, while others I look forward to buying for the Holidays to make it extra special!!!

So let's get started!
Here is my list of FAVORITE THINGS:

This pressed-powder foundation is a MUST in my makeup bag. On crazy days, I like to use a tinted moisturizer and top it with this tarte product and then I head out the door! You HAVE to try it!

I can't even start to explain how much I love this!  Micro-needling is all the rage, and I must confess I love to get it done every once in a while:) But to save on my pocket book, this tool is so AMAZING!!!  Gentle but affective between professional sessions. My skin honestly glows after each use. LOVE!!!

Ok ladies... I have pretty much tried every mascara on the market. Like no joke! I keep going back to a classic! Mary Kay Ultimate Mascara! I love to layer it with other mascaras to add to the volume! 
For sure a FAVORITE of mine!!!

If you know me, you'll know how much I LOVE to decorate with lots of pillows. 
H&M Home is always my first stop!  With pillows starting at $5.99 you can't go wrong! 

Ever so often, I like to splurge on pillows. These from Pottery Barn are so versatile and will last for years to come! The tassels won me over! I bought one in each color. Love them so much!!!

These porcelain houses are my favorite Holiday pick for the season! Last year, I featured little houses in Sugar Canisters in my Better Homes and Gardens Article (see here)  
These would look darling in any Christmas or Winter Decor and for $6.00 you can't go wrong!

I am always a sucker for Christmas dishes. These vintage looking plates, at Target, are just too cute to pass up!! swoon ;)

Scarfs are definitely my winter favorite. Around these parts, we get LOTS OF SNOW and our wardrobe is pretty much coats and boots. I like to use scarfs as a fun way to add color to my wardrobe and mix it up a bit. This scarf blanket from Old Navy is just too perfect!

Long necklaces are a staple for me. This one from Target is even prettier in person and it's under $15, so grab some for your girlfriends, moms, or sisters... it could also be a great stocking stuffer!
Yet another Target find! THIS SHIRT!!! So flattering, so girly! The bows make you feel so pretty! It comes in many colors: I bought 2 because I love it so much. Be sure and size up. I usually wear an XS and I Bought a small in this shirt. 

Every Christmas Season, I look forward to filling my home with winter scents! These 4 are my personal favorites! I love walking into my home when it smells like fresh pine...HEAVEN!!!

This relish from Harry & David is to DIE FOR! I mix it with a brick of softened cream cheese and pair the dip with crackers. I seriously could eat the entire bowl myself . . . and sometimes I do just that:)
 It's a perfect hors d'heurve to bring to your next Party! 

There you have it...my short list of favorites! Hope this helps with some shopping ideas!
