I have lots of favorite things. Probably it will take up more than just one (or two or three blogs), but I must start somewhere. Please understand me...these are my favorite products. Words would never do justice to my true favorite things/people/relationships. Anyway, if you are anything like me, you are a sucker. I get sucked right in by advertisments, recommendations, etc. If someone swears by some product, I promise you I will go out and buy it the next day. In fact, everything I am going to list is from someone raving about how wonderful they think it is. So...here goes:
I feel like I must start with coffee. I.love.coffee. Maxwell House. Good to the last drop.
If you saw my post from a few days ago, you know I love Nutella. I eat it every morning on
Oh...where would I be without this next product?? I really am going to do an entire blog about my Chi one day. But for now, it just gets a little shout out. Without going any further, please do not judge this amazing little straightening iron based on how my hair looks MOST of the time. Anna bought one years ago, and I held out for quite some time. Too much money. But then my crazy, afro hair got the best of me. So I buckled down and bought one. (From Ebay...at a significantly cheaper rate than retail stores...but still pricey) But oh...how my life changed. My hair is crazy thick with a LOT of body. Great for my "curly" days...horrible when I want to look polished and sleek. (Did I just say that?) Really, though, it's a miracle worker. I plan to post before and after pics at some point. Only if you promise not to laugh.
Okay, this is SO not a product. But my new favorite show is Community on NBC. It is hilarious. I think the writers are genius, and I laugh hard every Thursday night.
And last but not least, my new favorite author. Yes, I know...not a product. But I'm really digging him. I made a new years resolution to go back and read some of the classics that I have never read before. I am making good on that resolution (about the only one). But it has been well worth my time. I really, REALLY love to read. I am not just one of those people that say that and then rarely pick up a book. I am never without some book. Usually a few. And I like a lot of different genres. But I have discovered something about myself. I love a good book that I just can't put down for the life of me. But my favorite type of book is one that makes me think. I love a book that deals with major issues...It makes me want to go back to college and write a killer essay. I'm a dork. But this is precisely why I have a new favorite author (although he is by no means new....he's six feet under). John Steinbeck. I recently read of East of Eden and LOVED it. It was so juicy and rich and thought provoking...good v. evil, nature v. nurture, free will, sin...It was amazing. I don't agree with Oprah on everything, but I agree with her on this: It's a must read. Now I am going back and reading every other book he wrote.
Now you have my short list of favorites. There will be more to come. Anna has a list, and I have many more things to recommend. What are some of your "can't live without it" products? Or TV shows? Or authors? Or books? Looking forward to a shopping spree after I read your suggestions:)
