My Favorite Things

There are products that I tell friends about over and over again because they are just SO good that I want to share them with the world. Most of "my favorite things" I have shared on the blog before, but in case you missed them, I thought I would write a quick summary post.

Printstagram/Print Studio Mini Books- I make these little books with photos of the Mini Fashionista twice a year, Christmas and Mother's Day. They make a perfect gift for grandparents, aunts and other family members. You choose the photos directly from your Instagram account.

Printstagram/Print Studio Poster- I use the poster as a scrapbook for the Mini. I make them once a year and have the poster framed in her room. She likes looking at the old photos as much as I do. 

Blinc Mascara- If you're looking for a no-hassle, no-smudge mascara that you can take throughout your day with no re-application, blinc mascara is your answer. Instead of painting your lashes like conventional mascaras, blinc mascara forms tiny no-smudge, water-resistant "tubes" around your lashes. Once applied, these mascara tubes bind to your lashes and cannot run, smudge, clump, or flake, even if you cry or rub your eyes.

Angela Caputi Resin Bracelet- It's no secret that both Katie and I love these bracelets. We wear them with everything.

Yum Box- This lunch box works perfectly for the Mini Fashionista. It's leak proof, easy for her to open and close and dishwasher safe! They even make adult boxes now!

Merin Bags-  If you don't have one of these bags yet, what are you waiting for? I have 3! I take them everywhere with me....to the gym, on the airplane, car trips. You name it, my Merin bags have been there.

The Wet Brush- As far as I am concerned, there is no better brush for wet hair. I love it. The mini Fashionista loves it. You need one.

Trader Joe's Honey Mango Cream Shave-  Nothing fancy here. Just good, well priced shaving cream that doesn't require an extra stop at Target or a drug store.

And lastly, in honor of Easter this weekend...

Cadbury Royal Dark Chocolate Mini Eggs- I've nearly given up all holiday related candy, candy corn, candy canes, etc. But, these are just so good that I can't go through the Easter season without buying at least one bag. After over a month of temptation, earlier this week, I finally succumb and bought a bag. They are worth every calorie.


  1. Hello! Read your blog for the first time today. I love Blinc -- it's surprising to me that I don't see it mentioned more. I have oily skin and bad seasonal allergies for most of the year. It's the only mascara that doesn't flake off, pool under my eyes or irritate me. Now, even if I have an allergy attack and my eyes go crazy, I just end up with a few of the "tubes" on my cheek that I can wipe away instead of black smudges. Seriously, it's so great to be able wear mascara again. So in short, if you love Blinc -- I'll surely love your blog.

    1. I (we) are so glad that you found the blog! May will mark its 6 year anniversary, and my sister had been blogging here for just about 4 years now. It is a daily labor of love, so to read comments that people like the content and like reading really means a lot. We are not professional bloggers, clearly, and do not get compensated for the posts. Thanks for following. I hope you continue to read and enjoy! Regan
