SkinCareGirl's Favorite Things

An idea came to me some time ago. I've posted this before and thought it would perfect to post it again since it's the Holidays!

This came to mind after visiting and my visit to Alex the Girl's "Pet the Pretty Things." I thought....wouldn't it be fun to share my Favorite Things List too and ask visitors to do the same?

I've made a few purchases from the recommendations of Oprah and Alex the Girl, and have been quite satisfied, indeed! I've also included items I can't live without. They're "brought to you by" some special friends in my life at!

Would you do me a favor? If you have some favorite things you can't live without, please share!!

The Furminator - the BEST hair removal tool for your pet. This special anti-shedding treatment that dramatically reduces the mess and clean up of unwanted pet hair. You won't be disappointed!!
Canon Powershot 550 - on my wish list over at "Alex the Girl;" takes amazing photos, so she hooked me on this camera.
Tazo Tea Zen Green Tea Blend - An enlightening blend of the finest green teas and rare herbs available in this world. A nice, smooth, refreshing taste.
My Little Taste of Italy - Handmade biscotti, cakes, muffins and cookies. Melt in your mouth good! Italian Mama, Gloria makes them with LOVE.
The Best Organic Herbs - Herbs grown by safe and natural methods of farming, produces a product that is safe and healthy for the whole family. BEST on the Planet! PLUS fabulous Organic Teas too.
Vermont Shortbread Company - ahh, the tantalizing aroma of home-baked shortbread. Crumbly, chewy, with a hint of your favorite flavor spread thinly between two layers of buttery-rich crust.
TimeWise Age-Fighting Lip Primer - this is a Must Have for me! Use it on your lips, inside and outside of your lip line, to extend lipstick wear and prevent feathering and bleeding. Based on a 12-week clinical study, a dermatologist saw 100 percent of the panelists had an improvement of fine lines on lips. For best results, you'll want to use the Satin Lips Set along with the Primer.
Roses and Teacups - Beautiful gifts wrapped with LOVE! Nancy offers beautiful items with feminine themes~Items to beautify your own life or that of a lucky someone else!

Oh my goodness. My list is VERY long so I'll share as I think of things...

Let's see... I LOVE my pink Razor Cell Phone. It takes great photos on the go, and the voice command is awesome. I have the pink blue tooth headset to match as well - I'm such a girly girl ;)

I love my iPod Nano. I love music and this little gadget is awesome for rockin' out in the car with my daughter.

I also love a nice, warm Starbuck Mocha - YUM!

Speaking of Chocolate, I also LOVE Hershey's extra dark. Ahhhh... a little slice of heaven!

I have a lot of favorite things; let's see if I can keep the list manageable.

Hella Good ( makes the most luscious body washes. They look and smell like yummy cake frosting, and they're moisturizing, too. Birthday Suit is my favorite.

Sommer Designs (, makes lovely fabric handbags. They're cute, they're well made, and I love mine to death!

Hella Good and Sommer Designs are also small, independent, woman-owned companies.

My favorite teas are from Rishi (, Silk Road Teas ( Harney & Sons (, and Tao of Tea ( All super high-quality and delicious and Silk Road, in particular, carries some rare varieties.

And my favorite jewelry line is Elle B. ( - all handmade, one of a kind pieces, featuring unusual and rare vintage glass. Okay, it's made by me!

Dana said...

Whew! My favorite things I can't live without are my Bible, my silver/gray razor cell phone, my palm pilot, my kids(do they count?)

Heidi Caswell said...

Most favorite thing to be outdoors, enjoying nature, cost $0, value infinite.

Another favorite thing to do, be outdoors and take my digital camera by Sigma with me. It is a little on the large size, but takes the most wonderful photos. For ease of use of point and shoot go back to Leslie's choice. Either way, get yourself a digital camera.

My favorite way to brighten someone's day, send a heart felt greeting card.

My son couldn't live without his Sony Ericsson W810i Walkman phone. I call it his umbilical cord, as he is always connected to it. One of the best cell phone cameras, I have no idea how many mp3's he has downloaded to the phone, lots, look at it as an ipod, camera, cell phone.

And my laptop, can't live without it, headphones and all.

Hi Leslie,

I was just Googling myself and found my business listed here. What a lovely surprise. I miss you and the Ryze WIN group soooo much, but I just haven't had time for online networking lately. I've hired two bakers and now need to find a personal assistant to help with deliveries and local errands.

My favorite things:
- dark, dark, dark chocolate
- the smell of a baby
- the smell of the ocean
- a perfect meal followed with a perfect dessert, a wild game of Scrabble, and too much wine with my friends
- the feeling of rich soil on my bare hands when I'm weeding the garden
- the way my heart pounds after running a couple miles with my dog
- my incredible support network of entrepreneurial women :-)

So glad you found my lists useful! I found yours equally so and think I might head out to try the Tazo Tea! I so could use a pick me up after this holiday season :D

Dina at said...

That Ann, always Googling herself in public! (Hee hee, couldn't resist an opportunity to bust on the Shortbread Lady).

Love your Favorite Things theme, Leslie! Great stuff.

A Few of Mine:

Writing copy for amazing people - go-getters, business builders, creative people, folks who know how to be bold and push the envelope.

Fresh air, clean water, earth, sky, sunshine on my shoulders, all the gifts of the good earth.

Good friends, chuckles, secrets, slapstick comedy, women who rock!

MEN - their big grins, their banter, their easy confidence, the way they move, their good sense.

I also share Heidi's fondness for technology (where would a copywriting geek be without her computer, printer, scanner, and this blessedly springly keyboard?) Love my digital cam too.

Thanks again - this was a good time.
