my favorite things


Hi there! What a great day! It’s not only the day before an extended weekend for us, but also the day I’ve partnered with some of my favorite blogger friends to share our “My favorite Things Gift Guides” – Think Oprah without the car giveaway.  Everything I’m sharing today is stuff I either own and love or items on my own Christmas list for this year. I hope to help make your holiday shopping a little easier and give you gift ideas at every price point for everyone on your list, or yourself!

my favorite things - roomba


Our Roomba is one of two appliances I’ve asked for at Christmas. BEST GIFT EVER. With a dog, guinea pig, man, and three kids making a mess, and although it isn’t my method of vacuuming on short notice, it does a decent and daily cleaning for me allowing me to tackle other things. It does not fall down the stairs, it gets into corners like a champ, and exceeds my expectations in all regards.

my favorite things - kitchen aid mixer

The second appliance I’ve asked for at Christmas, I LOVE my mixer. Besides cupcakes, I’m not crazy about baking, but somehow, with a Kitchen Aid, it’s so much more fun. This year I’m adding a veggie spiralizer attachment!


my favorite things - prybar

I had no idea how useful this tool would be until I had one! It’s great for pulling staples, or rogue nails that don’t want to come out. It was essential for our staircase makeover.

Leopard Print Sweater

my favorite things - leopard print sweater


Anyone who knows me knows my love for leopard print and knows on any given day I’ll be wearing at least one animal-print item. This sweater holds its shape, is relatively lightweight, and, can dress up or down. My favorite thing is the price point!


Dry Shampoo – For Brunettes

my favorite things - dry shampoo

We all know dry shampoo is the BEST is magical, but as a brunette, I’ve always struggled with the white residue with each application. Those days are over with a tinted dry shampoo just perfect for us brunettes! Not a brunette? They have a tint for you too!

Benefit “Porefressional”

my favorite things - benefit porefessional


Hooked after receiving a sample of this primer in my stocking last year, it’s silky, velvety texture hides pores, and fades away fine lines!

Imagine Dragons – Origins

my favorite things - imagine dragons origins cd


I’m a 48-year old woman who loves pop music- I always will! I listen to many artists, but lately, I’ve loaded my playlist with a ton of Imagine Dragons. They have such a fun, catchy, versatile sound, with a song for every moment of the soundtrack of your life. If you happen to see me driving, I’m not yelling, I’m singing. And, I sound fantastic.

Against All Grain Celebrations Cookbook

my favorite things - against all grains celebrations cookbook

Diagnosed with Ulcerative Colitis last year, I’ve made numerous dietary changes – today, I follow a diet close to Paleo. As a foodie type person, I’ve spent the better part of the year learning how to cook for myself and our family all over again. This book has saved me in so many ways and taught me how to follow a best-for-my-body diet but one good tasting. Whether or not you’re grain-free, you’ll find every recipe to be foolproof and delicious!

Kendra Scott Elisa Filagree Necklace

my favorite things - elisa filagree pendant

A gift from my husband, this necklace is around my neck on a constant basis. A favorite accessory, it goes with everything, can be dressed up or down, and is a little bit dainty. A whole year in rotation and I don’t see myself taking it off anytime soon!

Milked Cashews Non-Dairy Milk

my favorite things - milked cashew milk


It’s amazing how much one misses cereal and milk when one can not have cereal and milk! While searching for non-dairy milk, I found this. It doesn’t contain guar gum or soy – neither of which I tolerate well. This milk comes in other nut varieties such as almond and hazelnut.


VictSing Essential Oil Diffuser 

my favorite things - essential oil diffuser

We love our essential oils, and this diffuser helps us to enjoy them. I love the large size water well. I fill it every few days or when I switch scents. It has multiple light settings and three timer settings, with auto shut off. I have a few other models in our home, but this one is my favorite.


Pink Velvet Pumps

my favorite things - pink velvet shoe

I’m already planning outfits including these adorable pumps – Come on, Santa, don’t let me down! If you’re a review reader, they are cute, comfortable and you can’t beat the price! They also come in gray – they may both be going on my list!

Mini Purse

my favorite things - mini purse

I’m a mini purse carrier and own a navy version of this exact purse – I receive constant compliments on it. Although I still stuff my bag to capacity, the smaller size prevents the neck and shoulder pain I was experiencing with a larger bag. Let’s not forget how adorable it is!

Rosegold Silverware

my favorite things - rose gold flatware

As I mentioned in my Thanksgiving tablescape post, despite finding a fun disposable alternative, this rose gold flatware is a top item on my Christmas list. I love the clean lines and can’t wait to style tables within the new year!

Dough Bowl

my favorite things - dough bowl

I have been coveting a vintage wooden dough bowl FOREVER. This year, I’ve put a few stars next to the “dough bowl” entry on my Christmas list. Crossing my fingers, I’m not on the naughty list!

Thanks for letting me share my favorite things (and the things I wish to find under the tree)! I hope you found a few ideas for one of your favorite people, or even for yourself!

But wait, before you go be sure to check out the other “My Favorite Things” lists!
