5 of My Favorite Things – Products

Our Rosey Life - Favorite Things List

Hello friends.  We have been taking down all the Christmas decorations this weekend.  I always feel a certain sadness to say goodbye to Christmas and also excitement for the new year’s adventures.  I was vacuuming oodles and oodles of pine needles off the floor and mantel and stairs.  And while I was vacuuming, I thought “I love this vacuum!”   Really I do.  And who loves a vacumm?  Raise your hand please.  Ok some of you.  That’s good.

I kept vacuuming and thinking about what other stuff I really love and a list kinda came together in my head.  Now let’s not get confused here.  I really love my family first and foremost.  At the same time, some stuff really makes life easier… happier… fun for me, so I thought I’d share my random list of a few favorite things with you.  By the way, no one is compensating me for my list.  It’s just little ol’ me and my opinion.

1)  Seize the Day Calendar

I think this is the coolest daily calendar.   I love that each day, I begin with reading an inspirational quote, thought, or idea.  I’m all about starting the day on the right foot with a positive thought.

2)  Nars Velvet Gloss Lip PencilNars gloss velvet lip pencil

I know.  I know.  You’re thinking – a lip pencil?  They’re always dry?  Not this one.  I was shocked.  The lip pencil goes on smoothly and feels like a lip gloss without the tacky lip gloss feel.  I use it like a lip stick versus just outlining my lips.  My favorite color is New Lover and it’s a fairly sheer pink with a little shimmer – great for every day.

3)  Luxe Plush Throw

I’ve had this throw for a few years and it’s always the one everyone grabs to snuggle.  It’s thick and soft and warm.  There is nothing better for movie watching on a cold winter night.

4)  Perigord Compote Bowls

I received these compote dishes for my birthday and I adore them.  I wanted something lovely for the table, that was dishwasher safe and kid-friendly.  Waalaa!  They are pretty and sturdy.  I’ve used them for grapefruit, ice cream and a pear salad so far.

5)  Miele S8 Home Care

And this is the item that kicked off my favorite-things-mind-wandering-while-vacuuming list.  We put in hardwood floors on the main floor last summer.  After spending the money for the hardwood, I wanted the right vacuum to help maintain the floors.  After a lot of research, I decided on the Miele S8.  It has great suction, doesn’t scratch the hardwood, and has attachments galore.  It wasn’t a cheap purchase, but neither was the hardwood flooring.  Mr. Rosey about had a heart attack, but he knows I vacuum almost daily and some things are worth it.  I AM a happy camper while vacuuming!

So those are a few of my favorite things.  What’s a favorite something you like?  I’d love to know.
