Go Ahead, Add These To Your List!

I decided that I wanted to play with Lauren and Bre for their new link up! I know I share some things on Friday Favorite posts, but any posts like this I do will be ultimate favorites. More than just my favorite for the now until the next best thing comes along haha. Anyways, let’s get to it!

Snack: Have you guys seen the Good Thins snacks in your cracker aisle yet??? I grabbed a  box of the Sweet Potato ones and yummmmmm!!!! This really hits the spot when I want something crunchy to snack on. I looked at the ingredients and nutrition facts and they really aren’t too terrible. Much better than chips, that’s for sure!

Show: I have a lot of favorite shows, but I wanted to share one you maybe aren’t watching. Lucifer. Not only is the main guy a hottie with an amazing accent!!! (Who cares if he is the devil, right???) This show has the best soundtrack and it is action packed with some dry humor and fun plot line. Give it a try.

Dish Soap: Raise your hand if you have super dry hands pretty much all the time. What makes it worse? Doing the dishes!!! I have been using Mrs. Meyer’s dish soap for over a year now and it has made a world of difference on my poor, dry hands! In fact, I hardly had any cracking this winter and I know it is because I am using this!!! Bonus for smelling amazing! My favorite is the Basil but I have used the Lavender several times as well and it is great too. It is made with all natural ingredients so I don’t mind washing Zoe’s bottles with it either. Which is basically what motherhood to an infant is. Washing bottles. All. Of. The. Time. So many bottles!!!!

Makeup Palette: If you can only purchase one eye shadow palette, get Urban Decay’s Naked Basics Ultimate. You can pretty much create any look you are going for without having to reach for anything else. There are great natural looking daytime colors, a few that you can use to spice it  up for evening…and everything in between. What I really appreciate is that they are matte. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good shimmer now and then but most of the time I want matte. The pigment is perfect and there isn’t much fallout. I use the Urban Decay Primer Potion under it, and every shadow. A holy grail for sure.

Acne Treatment: I really missed the Kate Somerville Anti-Bac Lotion when I was pregnant!!! You wouldn’t believe the difference this little gem can make with regular use. A bottle usually lasts me about six months, so it really isn’t a steep investment if you look at it that way.

Lip Treatment: My lips are forever dry and cracking. I have tried so many different things, but I always have Vaseline Rosy Lips on hand. I have been using this stuff for years and it is really the only thing that can bring some moisture to these lips of mine!!! I love the way it smells, it adds just a hint of color and is super cheap and found everywhere! I put it on every night before bed and I can still feel it on my lips in the morning. This also works great on days I don’t want to mess with lip gloss.

Blog: I plan to share one blog that you may not be reading each month! Have you met my IRL best friend, Laura? She blogs about awesome food and beer, DIY, recipes, being a full time working mom and everything in between. She is a real life blogger, which is something that is harder to come by these days. Find her over at Alabama Graffiti. Coolest blog name ever.

Let me know some things I need to add to my list!

    I have not seen that new Urban Decay naked matte eye palette. I will definitely add that to my list because I am a sucker for eye palettes.
    I like that you’ve added a blog recommendation too. I will check out Laura’s blog.

    1) YES to Lucifer. Isn’t he hilarious how he calls that little girl “offspring”?
    2) YES to Laura; that fellow ahole bro rocks.

    Awwww. Thank you for that sweet shout-out! You’re the best!! And so are those sweet potato chips things– and I need to hop on the Lucifer train– especially if you and Kathy dig it!

  • Reply Carly February 28, 2017 at 8:12 am

    I love those sweet potato crisps too– I love that you get a decent serving size. Have you tried any of the Meyers hand soap? I’m assuming they make some too– we usually use method, but my husband hates how much it dries out his hands, so I’m wondering if it’s worth trying something else. Swooning over that palette and I love how good that vaseline smells too! On my way to check out Laura’s blog now.

    I love the UD palette. I’ve talked about it on Insta, but not on the blog yet. Great reminder to get it back out!

  • Reply Lauren February 28, 2017 at 8:38 am

    I love sharing a blogger that you love! And I want to look for those crackers. And I think I started using that vaseline after you recommended it a long time ago – it really is great and I have some on my nightstand and in my purse. The Mrs. Meyers is a great rec. I started using dish gloves when Andrew started the BBQ business (also SO MANY DISHES) but something less abrasive would be good for those quick jobs when I don’t bother with the gloves. Thanks for linking up!

    Girl I love those Good Thins crackers. The bad thing is I’ll eat the entire box in one sitting. I think if I do get a UD palette it will be the basic one. I’m reaching more for mattes since my eyes are starting to show some age! What a fun idea for a post!

  • Reply Bre February 28, 2017 at 10:02 am

    I have the UD Basics but I haven’t seen the Ultimate Basics! Now I need to try to figure out room for another pallete.

  • Reply Brittany Pines February 28, 2017 at 10:13 am

    Those sweet potato chips sound awesome.

  • Reply Rebecca Jo February 28, 2017 at 10:42 am

    I feel like we have similar TV styles so I’m going to have to check out Lucifer… & he is might HOT – no pun intended 😉
    I’ve been wanting to get some of that vaseline stuff – mainly because its so darn cute!

  • Reply chelsea jacobs February 28, 2017 at 11:13 am

    That dish soap is the best EVER!

  • Reply Audrey February 28, 2017 at 11:58 am

    I’ve been meaning to put Lucifer on my watch list. We’ve been without a TV show since we finished The Newsroom. Maybe this can be it!

  • Reply SMD @ Life According to Steph February 28, 2017 at 1:23 pm

    I love both the Mrs. Meyers and Method dish soaps.

  • Reply Jana @ Jana Says February 28, 2017 at 2:04 pm

    Urban Decay is my second favorite makeup brand! Steph gave me the Naked palette and I love it.

  • Reply Ashley @ The Wandering Weekenders February 28, 2017 at 2:10 pm

    I’ll have to try and find those Good Thins in the grocery store. I always love finding lower calorie snacks. And UD eye priming potion really is the best thing ever! I know that I couldn’t live without it!

  • Reply StephTheBookworm February 28, 2017 at 2:31 pm

    Fun list! I’ve been wanting to watch Lucifer. I’ll have to see if I can get it on Netflix or DVD. I love Laura’s blog! It’s great!

  • Reply Lauren @ Oh Hey! I Like That! February 28, 2017 at 5:16 pm

    Oooh! Those Good Thins look delicious!

  • Reply Bri @ North Star Girl Lone Star World March 1, 2017 at 9:22 am

    I have the Good Thins chickpea garlic & herb in my cabinet. So good! I didn’t actually know if I would like them or not when I bought them but they surprised me.

    I’ve been using vaseline for lip care too. I love tube chapstick but vaseline works wonders.

    I’m going to have to make a Target run later. I decided to give up on my dishwasher (I could just talk to maintenance) & just hand wash everything so I’ll pick that brand up. Thanks for the recommendation!

  • Reply Amy @ The Crazy Wise Woman March 1, 2017 at 9:28 am

    Urban Decay anything is my Holy Grail as well. My eyes could not live without their products. I guess I need that palette now lol, thanks!

  • Reply Stephanie March 1, 2017 at 11:57 am

    I’ve seen people recommend Lucifer before, I really need to get on that and watch!

  • Reply kristen March 1, 2017 at 2:25 pm
