My Favorite Things

Don't ya just love watching Oprah's Favorite Things show? I know I do. It has become something I look forward to every year and every year I try to figure out how to get tickets for that particular show. LOL

320 Sycamore is hosting a "My Favorite Things" party! Ok, time to party!

My favorite makeup is Everyday Minerals. It is like the popular brand Bare Minerals except without the harmful bismuth oxychloride and alot less expensive. It's awesome...just try it!

My favorite candy is Brown & Hayley's Almond Roca. It is soooo yummy!!! In case you've never had is buttercrunch toffee covered in chocolate & almonds. You need to try it if you haven't already!!

I started drinking coffee about 2 years ago (never liked it before) and now I love it! I have found some great flavored coffees from Gevalia. They have a great promotion going on where you can order 3 coffees or teas for $3!!! You even get a travel mug with it for free! I got the Mocha, Irish Creme, and Chocolate Rasberry. Hurry, go order yours now...HERE!! This would even be great as a gift with a nice coffee cup! Just think it could even be 3 gifts!!

I LOVE soft cuddly blanket and found this blanket last year at Kohls. It's big and super soft! It is on sale for $19.99, but go to and find some coupon codes to get it even cheaper! That is what I did and got mine for $11!

The perfume that I like is usually clean, fresh scents, and there is one perfume that my hubby LOVES! In 21 yrs of marriage he has only ever commented on Dream Angels Heavenly from Victoria's Secret. So since hubby loves it...I must keep wearing it! LOL

Anyone that knows me knows that I treat myself to bubble baths everyday. A bubble bath that I buy myself every year at this time of year is from Philosophy. Every year at Christmas time QVC sells a large Philosophy bubble bath. I wonder what the scent will be this year? I'm sure whatever it is I'll love it!
Last Christmas I bought myself a Kitchenaid Artisan Mixer is Gloss Cinnamon and have to say, "I Love It!! If you love to bake like I do, put this on your christmas list!!

I love to make my house smell good so I use the home fragrance oils at Bath & Body Works and here is one I love for Christmas.

Now what are your favorites??

I really think I'm going to have to try that oil since you and Melissa both wrote about it! Thanks for sharing!

Leanne said...

Almond Roca is my fav. I love all those yummy smelling favorites. Great list.

Richella said...

Almond Roca. Yum!! You have good taste.

And honestly, I'm not sure how I would make it without my KitchenAid mixer. Really!

gina said...

I do love to bake- it's going onmy list! You are the second person in this party to like that scent for your home... I'll have to check it out.

Dream Angels is a grea scent. I haven't had it for a while, but sure wouldn't mind getting it again. The chocolate sounds yummy! Fun list!

Hi Darlene! Winter scent is the best, isn't it? you've got me wanting to smell heavenly now too :) And thank you for the Kohls tip~I love cozy blankets! Thanks so much for joining today~

cheryl said...

Darlene, where do you get the Everyday Mineral makeup? Is it only through mail order? I have been using Bare Minerals and love it, but it is sooo pricey and you can't use coupons from Ulta on those products. Thanks!

I love my kitchen-aid mixer too. The blue bell peppermint ice cream has these little peppermint green and red balls...creamy...ugh...I want some now :)

I used to have the VS Heavenly Angels...smells good.

Sam said...

I love my mixer but it did not come with the extra parts to keep the stuff from spinning out. My daughter and I were making apple squares last week and the flour went everywhere. I wonder if I can get those extras to add on. LOL
