A Few of My Favorite Things II

In the grand holiday wind-down, I thought I'd share a few of my very favorite little indulgences with you all, since I received some of them in the form of Christmas gifts:)

1. Bliss Foaming Face Wash- I absolutely love this face wash. I have always been very lucky to have been blessed with my mother's great skin, so I never had to worry much about my complexion...until I got pregnant. I noticed my skin becoming somewhat blotchy and definitely subject to the occasional (more like weekly) breakout. I've been using this face wash for a few weeks and my skin looks 100% better. It has a gentle exfoliant and a great smell. Matty was sweet enough to stick some of this in my stocking for me, along with Bliss' amazing lemon sage body butter- I highly recommend both.

2. Votivo Candles- my mom found these several years ago and we have been devoted fans ever since. They are the kind of candles that can smell up an entire floor of your house and the scents are fresh and clean. My personal favorites are red currant and black berry basil. They aren't cheap at around $20/candle, but they do last a while.
3. Beech Cotton Sateen Sheets- I am a bit of a linens snob. I really appreciate having good, soft sheets and linens, as well as towels, washcloths, etc...My dad discovered these at Bed Bath & Beyond about a year ago and I could not believe how soft they are. They are 100% beech cotton which is similar to bamboo cotton in that it is a renewable resource and environmentally friendly, and they really feel like silk when you slip into bed.

4. Lancome Kohl Eye Liner- I am a bit of an eye liner novice in that I have a long ways to go until I have the art perfected. My sister introduced me to this eye liner over Thanksgiving and it is the easiest eye liner to apply I have ever tried. It even gives beginners like me hope.
5. And for any other pregos out there, Gap Maternity! My mom was sweet enough to raid the Gap Maternity in Orlando before she came up for Christmas before she came up to visit, and along with the pieces I picked up at the after Christmas sale, my maternity wardrobe is pretty much set! Here are a few of my favorite pieces.

I also picked up this little number from Ann Taylor Loft Maternity on eBay for $14 (new with tags)!:

6. And lastly, my Florida Gators!! Be sure to watch tonight as we take on Oklahoma for the National Championship! This is really one of the ONLY things that could keep me up past 10 p.m. these days :)
