[fave things: Things I'm Lovin']

I love seeing new things online, so every now and then I post a few of the things that I'm loving as well.

So - here again are a few things that I'm enjoying right now.  In fact - there are more *grin* - but I whittled it down to five items.  Gotta keep something under my sleeves, no? *grin*

1. Voluminous "False Lashes".  Ok ... I'm always on the hunt for a good mascara.  I like to be bold with my eye makeup - and am not afraid of colour.  But a good mascara is hard to find.  I hate the way there are seven million choices, and I can't tell which one is the best.  So when I headed into Shoppers Drug Mart to replace my old tube, the lady at the counter knew exactly what to show me.  "Don't you hate having to choose between "thickness" or "length"?  Now you don't have to ... "  And she was SO right.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mascara.  I just wish it came in purple too *grin* ... And I actually bought two ... one for my bathroom drawer, one for my purse.  Just in case *wink*.

** please note that in CANADA, this mascara is called "Voluminous: False Lashes", not "False Fiber Lashes".

2. "Bakestone Brothers Thin Buns".  These 100 calorie buns are PERFECT.  They let me have a tuna sandwich without the heaviness of a starchy bread.  I get mine at Costco.  Fantastic.

3.  Hello Sugar! By La Senza.  Now.  I am assuming that I have no male readers ... I mean, my own hubby doesn't read this - so yours probably doesn't either *grin*.  So ... let me just say, without saying too much, that the childbearing years have not been so kind to my poor body.  But now I've found Hello Sugar - and I am telling you ... in.cred.ible.  I mean, it fits perfectly - no "gapes" (eek), and adds curves without looking ... fake.  I want one in every colour ... sorry I couldn't find a clearer image of it ... bleh.

4. FanFare - Best of Bridge Cookbook.  Yup ... it's out.  Another crazy-fantastic cookbook by the ladies of Best of Bridge.  With 200 new yummy recipes like Ginger Peach Pork Tenderloin and Stovetop Chicken Pot Pie .... and Mediterranean Couscous Salad and Szechuan Green beans ... White Chocolate Fig Squares and Coconut Lime Cheesecake.  Yum.  ... I got my copy at Costco.

5. "Cheer" by Escents Aromatherapy.  I have a fancy little diffuser that I bought a long time ago ... and I love it.  And I love having different scents in the home too.  Especially once the kids are asleep ... I find it "cleans" the air.  Literally.  This diffuser works up to 1000sq ft.  And my new favourite scent is "cheer" - a mix of benzoin and orange.  It has anti-fungal properties because of the cinnamon, and the citrus smells crisp.  It's very holiday-smelling without it being perfume-my.  Love it.

There you have it.  A couple of things that you just may want to check out ...

Have a great one!
