We are off to Vacation Bible School this week…I’m excited to teach – and to learn what I’m teaching. It doesn’t get much deeper than the lessons over these next five days, especially for those of us always in need of remedial courses…In honor of our spiritual endeavors, here are some material items I have been meaning to shamelessly promote…
Williams Sonoma Countertop Spray
I clean up my kitchen all day long. This is my splurge that makes the task a little bit better. As I stand before another sink full of dishes, I think: “When I’m done, I can do my countertops!” Is this superficial? Yes. Moving on…
Annie’s Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks
I kind of think fruit snacks are poison so it does not make me sad that the girls reject most of them. But they love these. And we can’t help but trust Annie. Downside, they are pricey. Especially if the box of 8 pouches is consumed before you get out of the store. If you shop wholesale, the large box is definitely worth it.
Aerosole Well Wishers
If you have seen me at all this summer, chances are I have been wearing these shoes (not in yellow, in a bone/cream color). Upside: these are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn. They feel better (much better) than my flip-flops. They are also a perfect height – great for any length skirt or dress or cropped pants. Downside: I bought them at TJ Maxx and have not been able to find my color anywhere since. They are not available anymore on the Aerosole site but I found this pair on QVC…so google “Aerosole Well Wishers” and you should have some luck, somewhere, with some colors. (There is a great red pair out there!)
Aveda Energizing Body Cleanser
My lovely sister-in-law gave this to me for my birthday. She simply said (or shouted) “You’ll love it” as we wrangled our troop of small girls one June evening. If you are at a place in life where your precious 4-7 minutes in the shower is tranquil time in sacred space, or if you just enjoy divine bath products, this cleanser is (peacefully) whispering your name.
Bare Minerals (everything)
I started wearing this make up five years ago when I was pregnant with Sophia. I was an immediate convert. So much so, that when people told me I was “glowing” I would thank them but say it was actually my new mineral make up…I especially love this in the summer with the built in SPF and no wierd reaction to sweat…And Williamsburg has an outlet! Yes, my friends, an outlet with beautiful sales people walking around with tool belts full of make up supplies. I love to just go there and wander and have them try different shades of ‘warmth” on me.
What products have you been enjoying lately? Do share…especially if its a potion that will keep hair straight when its 102 degrees outside…
