A Few Of My Favorite Things-

June 14th, 2009

I am one of those people who love to hear about products that other people like. Household products, coffee, books, music, magazines- the sky is the limit. I love hearing about it.

I also love sharing with others about my own favorite things. It doesn’t necessarily mean it will become one of your favorite things, but then again- you never know.

Several years ago, I gave my friend Samantha a gift basket filled with many of her ‘favorite things’ as a Christmas gift. When she opened it, she said “My favorite things! I feel like I’m on Oprah!”

Granted, Oprah I’m not, but we ALL have favorite things, and I love to hear about them. So while I’m sharing five of my favorite things for this week, I’d love to hear what some of YOUR favorite things are.

As I share these more often, I’m going to add photos of each item, but today I’m only going to share a photo of one- which is one of my favorite- favorite things.
Can you guess what it is?

Well, if you guessed Illy Coffee- then you guessed correctly.

So, at the top of this (and possibly every) list:

  • Illy Coffee-  My absolute favorite of coffees.  You can find it at World Market, Williams Sonoma and other fine stores.   It’s a little on the pricy side, but well worth it in my opinion.
  • Bar-B-Que Flavored Snack-N-Jacks- At only 38 calories for each ‘rice cake’  they are the perfect snack.  They are delicious plain, but I often top them with a little hummus, grilled chicken breast, or even a slice of low-fat cheese.  Two of those and a glass of skim milk are a great, quick lunch.
  • iPhone Application- Lose It–  So far, this is my favorite of the iPhone applications.   I use it to track every single thing that I put into my mouth, plus my daily exercise.  I know there are others out there, but I’m  hooked on this one.  Plus it’s free- so what else could you want?
  • Burberry Original Perfume– Because my allergies have gotten so bad over the years, I had stopped wearing perfumes because it seemed that everything I put on bothered me.   Samantha wears this perfume, and when we were home, I tried on hers to see if I could actually wear it- and I could.   I bought a bottle, and I’m thrilled that I can wear perfume again.
  • Coffee Mugs– Earlier this week, I bought yet another coffee mug-  Well I ended up getting it ‘gratis’ but at the time I didn’t know that, I was prepared to buy it.  She asked- “Who is that for?”   and I responded that it was for MOI’ .   She said, “Don’t you have enough coffee mugs?”    I laughed and said Never!   I then proceeded to tell her that I love them, and that I choose a different one each day, depending on my mood.    She looked at me in disbelief and asked, “Are you serious?”   then turns to Marcel and asks him the same thing.   When we both told her yes, she looked at me oddly and shook her head.    I said, “I can’t help it- I love coffee mugs”, and she says “Yes, and shoes, and purses, and watches, and and and…. ”  hahah    She does have a point…. heehee
