I decided to play along with Mama Belle and introduce you to a few of my favorite things.
Here are Mama Belle’s Rules:
Here we go! Everything you really don’t care to know.
1. Burt’s Bees Lip Balm and Hand Salve
Notice how many lip balms I have? They’re everywhere!
2. Wrist Warmers
I’m constantly freezing! Despite being warm of heart, my body temperature hovers dangerously close to hypothermia and I need all the insulation I can find. That’s my excuse for eating an oatmeal cream pie yesterday. You must try THIS RECIPE!
3. Aveda skin care products
I’m not only cold, but I’m also a snake. I shed my skin several times a month. For this reason, I need to use Ultra Hydrating Moisturizer at least twenty times daily. If not, my face resembles a dried out cracked brownie that was left in the oven way too long. It’s not pretty. Imagine with me how makeup gets caught in cracks deep enough to house mineral mines.
I know you thought the fashion industry dictated what I wear. You’ve pictured me in the hottest New York styles ripped from runway model’s bodies. I so hate to disillusion you. Clearance is what dictates my wardrobe. Terrible, but true. I walk around in pants that cost $3.40. My image is forever ruined.
4. Jones Fancy Sodas
I only buy these for special FAIN-CY parties because they cost more than my pants. However, I love them and they are a special treat.
5. Beanswax Candles
I light this little green baby and I instantly mellow. I just want you skeptics to realize that this IS a GREEN product. So is Burt’s Bees and Aveda! I’m sticking to this GOING GREEN theme in 2009. I am becoming environmentally responsible. My children will have no excuse to blame me for global warming. Speaking of global warming, is it warm where you are? Just wondering…
6. My Boots
They’re not cowboy boots, but I love em! Notice the stretchy strip down the center…that’s for people with full-figured calves.
7. Aveda Hair Potions
Taming my hair is a job equivalent to solving world hunger or ending our economic crisis. These are weapons of frizz warefare and they are walking away victors. Expensive, but that little bottle on the right lasted one full year. I don’t feel badly. “There is a certain peace that is only known on the other side of war.” I believe Sean Connery said that in The Hunt For Red October.
I’ve been waiting to use that line forever!
8. The Letter “G”
The letter of the day is G. Oddly I feel as though I were living on Sesame Street.
