Top 10 Tuesday: My favorite products.

1.  St. Ives Apricot Scrub  -  I heart this facewash!  I have used it for many many years and it is my absolute favorite thing!  I've tried others, but I always end up coming back to this old faithful.  It's the best exfoliating scrub (in my opinion), it's super cheap and you can find it anywhere! 

 2.  Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer  - 
If you thought any other chapstick/lipgloss was it... well, you're wrong.  Sorry to tell it how it is, but this is the clear winner and oh so wonderful!  Not only does it make my lips feel amazing, but the shimmer looks cute too!  It's perfect!  

3.  Mr. Clean Magic Eraser  -  
Love! Love! Love!  I'll never forget my first experience with this amazing product!  It came out right around when I was moving out of my Lynchburg apartment and moving on to the great city of New York.  I bought it because I had to clean and try to get as much of my deposit back as possible and that magic eraser did things that a sponge and soap never could have done!  And still it never ever disappoints!  If you have never tried to use it to clean the bathtub/shower door or tile in the bathroom or kitchen, you must do it immediately!  Stop what you are doing.  Put down the ice cream and GO CLEAN YOUR BATHTUB!   I'm telling you... nothing else works the way the magic eraser works on that funky scum!  It's incredible!  

4.  Oil of Olay Complete  -  
I have also used some form of this product for years... it takes me back to watching my MawMaw dabbing it on her face in the bathroom in the morning.  She would call it her "oil of old lady".  It always made me laugh.  It still does, especially since I'm the old lady using it now.   :-)  But I love this moisturizer.  It works just like it's supposed to and it makes me happy. 
5.  (One more Olay product too) Olay Quench Body Lotion  -  

I'm partial to Olay products, but this one just does it for me.  It makes my skin feel so good and it shimmers just a hint!  I love that! 

6.  Olde Cape Cod Parmesan and Peppercorn dressing  -  
This is a new one on my list.  My friend Kim came up a while back and we were making a salad for dinner and she picked it out.  It was just dumb luck.  Neither of us had bought this brand or had this dressing, but it is SO stinkin' good!  I've already gone through two bottles of this stuff since her visit just over a month ago.  It makes me crave salads.  wow!  How many dressings make you say that?  It's just THAT good!  

7.  Ghirardelli Dark Chocolate Squares -  
YUM!  This is my treat just about every day!  I'm a chocolate lover and really good chocolate makes my belly happy!  

8.  Pamper's Splashers  -  
Caroline is just about potty trained completely, but I still am not ready to take the chance in the pool.  We have used these since she was a baby whenever we have gone to the pool and they just work.  My aunt gave us our first pack and we have been fans ever since.  They are wonderful!  I'm sure Huggies brand is good too, but we have just been a Pamper's family from the beginning and they have always worked for us.  We love these swimmy diapers! 
9.  L'Oreal Bare Naturals Foundation  -  
I had been a Revlon girl for years!  Never even bought a L'Oreal product.  Then my mom introduced me to this just a mere few months ago!  I love it!  It covers better than any kind of mineral foundation I've ever used, even the expensive ones and it stays on for much longer than most foundations.  It is light and natural looking.  This product is just plain great!   

10. Mack's Soft Foam Earplugs
Laugh.  It's okay.  :-)  I give you full permission to make fun of me for this one.  I know this is totally weird, but there's a story behind it.  When I met Andrew way back when, I realized early on that I was going to either have to become a more sound sleeper or we would be destined to a life of sleeping in separate bedrooms.  So, our first trip together to the beach, I couldn't handle it.  I couldn't sleep AT ALL.  I was a mess and so was he.  I thought this was for sure the end for us.  How could I spend the rest of my life with someone that I couldn't even sleep in the same bed with because of his snoring.  (Sorry for calling you out Love, but you know it's true.)  Anyway, I found these earplugs and they have been my lifesaver!  They work wonders!  It is difficult for me to sleep without them now!  I love them and if you live with a snorer and toss and turn all night because of the noise, I'm telling you, you MUST get these!  They are amazing!  

I'm sure I could list so many more than this, but this list makes me happy.  I love all of these things and use them almost every single day.  

Tomorrow we're off to the parent's house!  Yay!

I would be lost without magic erasers. Seriously. They have saved many a piece of furniture here.

I love Oil of Olay products for my face too!

OH my gosh. I forgot about that salad dressing. I have to get some more! Too bad I can't find it here.

Now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure I heard snoring when I was visiting. He he. Don't worry about it, though. I have to use a sleep mask and a fan most nights to get decent sleep, and that's not due to anyone but myself!
