These are a few of my favorite things...

You get a car and you get a car...

No just kidding it's not like that. If you are at all familiar with Oprah, you may have heard of her favorite things show she does around Christmas. I would have given anything to be in the audience at one of those shows because not only does she share her favorite things, but everyone in the audience goes home with one of each of them!

She gives away things like $200 pj sets, refrigerators, and the latest and greatest gadgets...but I don't have Oprah kind of money. However I still wanted to share a few of my favorite things with you and give away a set of them to one lucky winner!

Here it is:



What's Included?

Bath and Body Works Foaming Antibacterial soap in Coconut Lime- I love this foaming soap and the Coconut Lime is by far my favorite scent. If you need to kill germs on the go, they have these tiny little bottles of hand sanitizer for like $1. I always have one in my purse just in case, but the foaming soap is still my favorite.

Sephora's Whipped Body Delight in Marshmallow Fluff- I love, love, love these little tubs of body butter. They are harder to find in the stores now, but they still have them online in gift sets sometimes. I have one in my car and they are the perfect size to take on vacation. I love the Coconut or Grapefruit scent in the summertime but the Marshmallow Fluff and Peppermint Mocha are my favorite fall/winter scents.

Cover Girl's Lash Blast Mascara- I'm not a huge make up person, but I always keep a travel sized eye lash curler and mascara in my purse because a) my eyelashes need help and b) that one little step can make you look so much more awake. I used to be loyal to Benefit's BadGal mascara, but I decided to give this one a try because it is available in more places and cheaper. I think I may like this one better! Now they just need to make a travel size!

Miss Manicure's Mini Emory Boards- I have these all over my house, car, purse, work...they are great. I am always breaking a nail and I used to just rip it off. But now that I have these handy little things, I don't have to destroy the whole nail. Plus they are super cute- you know how I love travel sized things!

Got2Be Smooth Operator- I got a free sample of this stuff and have been a loyal user ever since. Every morning I am always in a rush, but all I have to do to my hair is quickly run a straight iron through it and put a tiny dollop of this in my hands, rub them together, and run my fingers through my hair. It leaves me with smooth, silky hair and tames all those little fly-aways.

Would you like to win this loot? I know you guy readers are just clamouring to get your hands on this stuff! Here is how to enter:

1. Become a follower- if you're not already AND
2. Leave a comment on this post with one of your favorite things!

And since this is going up a little late and I know you'll all be out partying it up over the weekend, you have until midnight on Monday Jan. 4th to enter.

This is the last Grateful Giveaway, so don't miss out!

Great post and Give-a-way!

Some of my favorite things would have to be...

1) L'Oreal Voluminous Mascara (Thank goodness for Mascara!!!)

2) T3 360 Dry Shampoo from Sephora (I use this stuff about 3x a week so I don't have to bother washing my hair everyday...LOVE. IT.)

3) Brookstone Back Massager (We seriously use this thing like 3 - 4x a week) http://www.brookstone.com/back-massagers_max-percussion-massager-dual-node.html?bkiid=subCategoryLandingPage_Massage_Body_Massagers_Back_Massagers|C4CategoryProdList1FDT|8378369

4) My iPod (Makes workouts SO much better!)

5) L'Oreal True Match Concealer (nobody else needs to know when I can't sleep)

Happy New Year!

:-) Ann

Megan- I want a kitchen aid mixer so bad...I told my friends and family I was not cooking Christmas dinner again until I got one...but I doubt that will happen before next Christmas!

Ann- I am going to have to try that dry shampoo. I tried the Oscar Blandi one, but it was too powdery and kind of made my hair look grey. I definately need a good dry shampoo for those days I'm running late!

One of my favorite things this year has been Loreal Collagen cream!

Jane said...

Those are some awesome favorite things! :-) I have to say one of my absolute favorites is the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy Body Spray in Jasmine Vanilla. I hadn't been able to find it in stores in quite awhile, until I went to the Bath and Body Works Outlet Store when I flew into Raleigh in April. I was so excited to find it I bought three bottles! :-D

Paula Grace said...

Suz, of course I am a stalker, I mean follower :). Some of my favorite things are:

1. Excedrin Migraine: this stuff will kill any headache and is pretty good for aches and pains as well

2. Mary Kay Emollient Cream: It's super thick and gooey, but it works wonders for dry skin. It also will take out a sunburn if you ever spend a little too much time catching rays.

3. BigWigg Root Volumizer: all I gotta say is BIG HAIR IS IN! :)

4. Diet Coke :)

Allison said...

I'm currently loving Victoria's Secret "Amber Romance" body spray (my boyfriend loves it too). And I just got a thing of Bath and Body Works "stress relief" body butter that's pretty awesome.

Alyssa said...

My current favorite things include strawberry banana smoothies by Bolthouse and Organix coconut conditioner!

Amber @ A Little Pink in the Cornfields said...

One of my favorite thing is dry shampoo by Bed Head. It's perfect for second day hair when your hair is a little oily! It's kinda pricy at about $20 a bottle, but it's so worth it!

That basket looks amazing! Wow.

One of my favorite things is raspberry flavored water. But it has to be the brand made by Giant Eagle (Giant Eagle is a grocery store nearby). I could drink it all day long.

One of my favorite things is actually a hair gel I randomly found at CVS. Its called Curl Up, and works really well for me. Plus I think it smells a little bit like grapefruit.
