Things I ❤

Because i get questions all the time about the products i love, i have compiled a list of my favorite things below.  i could include LOTS more, but i have chosen to specifically list those things that i use all the time or that i wouldn’t want to live without!

In an effort for full disclosure, when you order anything on Amazon through one of the links provided below, i get a small (very small :) ) percentage of the sale.  it is at NO additional cost to you…the price is exactly the same whether you order through my link or not.  but if you are interested in supporting this blog, and you want to buy anything on Amazon (even something not listed below), please use one of my links!!

i have only listed products that I personally own and LOVE!  (and i’m constantly adding new things, so check back often)
