Product Love

Here's some of what has been making my life easier lately
Burt's Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes with White Tea, 30 Count (Pack of 2)
Burt's Bees face wipes
My newest face wipe fave.
I'm in a hurry to get my face clean before I go to
bed, so face wipes are always quick and easy.
They smell good and are super soft.
I'm a huge fan of BB's lip balm so I wasn't
too surprised I liked these so much. 

We keep one of these compact Black and Decker screwdrivers in the kitchen drawer.
It comes in handy waaaay more than I ever would have thought.
Do you have any idea how many toys require a screwdriver to change the batteries?
Good Night Charleston (Good Night Our World series)
Beckett got "Good Night Charleston" for Christmas.
It's a quick tour through Chucktown that
highlights some great spots.
You can find many other cities in the series also. 
Paul Mitchell Protools Express Ionstyle Professional Styler
I'm kind of the guru when it comes to flat irons.
I've tried them all.  Chi, GHD (fantastic one too), T3, but this one
lately has been my favorite.
According to my hairdresser, if you bought a Chi recently, you've almost
wasted your money.  They aren't made the same and I can agree to that.
My old school Chi bit the dust a while back and I upgraded to the GHD, which I loved,
but it gave me too much volume (I have really big frizzball hair--no need for volume!), so
I started using the Paul Mitchell  one again.
SUCH a huge difference!
It has silicone strips on one of the plates that make it
straighten out the hair with fewer passes.
I found it worked better to put the plates on the underside of the hair for
a smoother look.
Smoooooth hair makes me happy!
Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo Spray, Beautiful Clean, 5-Ounce
The drugstore was out of Pssssst (my usual dry shampoo)
so I went with the Suave. 
Even cheaper than Pssssst and it smells pretty good too.
Cheaper is good. Very good! 
Built Cargo Large Camera Bag
I was in dire need of a new camera bag.
One that didn't have huge pockets all over the place and
I got tired of lugging around a ginormous bag that was bigger than Beckett.
This neoprene camera bag by BUILT is fantastic.
It's lightweight and has removable lens organizers along with
slim pockets on the inside for my filters, cheat sheets and extra memory cards.
It easily holds my camera with a lens attached and two extra lenses plus hoods.
I got the large size but it also comes in medium.

Got any great items you've discovered that I need to know about?
Happy Wednesday.


  1. I can't wait to try this dry shampoo! I splurge on Blandi when I can because a lot of other sprays leave the gnarliest smell, but this bargain may quickly win me over. (Is dry shampoo not the best invention ever?!) And makeup wipes are a must-have for me these days, too. I never go to bed without taking off my makeup, but some days the whole routine of a proper wash is too much. Great product choices!

  2. LEMI-SHINE!!! no more spots on your glasses from the dishwasher (you guys have a new dishwasher, so you might not have this problem yet). it's a life saver!
    and Oil of Olay facial moisturizer. Light, but feels good on your face. I have to use it every night, or my face just doesn't feel the same!

    1. I'll have to try the Lemi-Shine, for sure!! Thanks!
