Raindrops on Roses & Whiskers on Kittens

When I was in high school, I was in musicals and choir and stuff like that. I haven’t sung a serious note in about one million years, but back when my pipes were in shape, I’d sing “A few of my favorite things” from the Sound of Music for almost every audition. I love that song and I could sing it.

So, last night I was thinking about posting and this song just popped into my head, and I thought, “I’ll do a post and talk about lots of my favorite things!” I’m like Oprah up in here. Oh, the brilliance. It’s stunning sometimes, isn’t it? Plus, it’s Things I Love Thursday over at the Diaper Diaries, so I thought it’d be perfect to play along. Today I’m gonna tell you about some of my favorite products – just for funzies – no reviewing involved.


Vaseline Sheer Infusion lotion – this stuff is the best EVER. I generally will buy whatever lotion I can get for free at CVS or Walgreens or Rite Aid, which is how I happened upon this stuff. A couple of uses and I was HOOKED! Now I will ALWAYS buy it when it’s on sale and I have a coupon. I’ve never met a lotion that moisturizes so completely. I currently have a nice stockpile of about 5 bottles. 🙂 It’s on ECBs this week at CVS and there are $1.50 off coupons at coupons.com so go GETCHA some.


Venus Embrace razor – Best razor EVAH. Once you go Venus, you’ll never go back. I also have an incredible stockpile of these babies from drugstoring. I get them at every opportunity, because if I run out, I might DIE. (Also on at CVS this week! Was a coupon in this past Sunday’s P&G! Go!!)

exotic passionfruitsimplycotton

Mary Kay Eau de Toilette – Exotic Passionfruit and Simply Cotton
– these two are my favorite fragrances. I can’t pick which one I like better! I love them so much, I got the body wash, scrub, and lotion in each fragrance as well. They are both light and wonderful and make me happy! You can get them from your Mary Kay lady or mine (my BFF Luanne) if you don’t have one. Since I like to share the love, I gave Emily and her sister Anna each one of these scents for Christmas!

LE jeans

Lands’ End Ultra Fit boot cut jeans
– I got three pairs of these on clearance at Sears Lands’ End shop a few weeks ago, and I have thrown out (given to Goodwill) all my other boot cut jeans. The fit and style of these are amazing and make all my other pairs unnecessary!!

shade cap

Shade Clothing tops – I have a zillion and one Shade Clothing tees and tanks, and it will never be enough! I LOVE, love LOVE them! They are the best basics ever and the prices are always great!

So, those are a few of my favorite things! For more favorites, check out Things I Love Thursday at the Diaper Diaries.

  1. I have the cool cotton MK fragrance. I don’t love it as much as I thought I would, but I definitely LIKE it.

    And I’m going to have to check out that lotion. My feet are in a BAD WAY and need some infusing, I think!

  2. Jenny, I was just checking out the Shade clothing website and I love it! I hate tops where I have to worry about flashing every time I bend over, and these are very modest! Quick question–In your opinion, do the tops run true to size or on the small size? They look like they fit close to the body and I want to know before I order because I’m more on the, er, “chesty” side. Especially right now while b’feeding.
    Thanks for sharing!

  3. I’m totally with you on the Venus razors!!! I used one forever and then the base part got yucky. I got a zillion Schick Quattros at Target for free a few months ago, so I figured I’d switch. They stink! But, I feel the need to use 80 free razor blades before paying an oop for another.

    Oh, and I just bought those LE jeans on clearance at Sears last week. Love them!!

  4. I tried this ding-dang lotion strictly on your say-so. And I fell in love with it. And my kids fell in love with it. And now i can’t find it ANYWHERE. What do you have for me to use NOW?!?!

    1. I have no other recco now! I bought up a few bottles when it was on clearance, hoping it would come back, just repackaged. 🙁 The only other lotion I really like is Palmer’s cocoa butter lotion but it’s not as light as the Vaseline. WAAAH!

      1. Wondering if Vaseline has a stockpile…somewhere…I’m thinking I need to do some searches & contact…someone???

  5. Okay so I was so glad you posted about the ultra fit Lands end jeans and bought 2 pairs. But now they are both getting so worn out and Lands End doesn’t carry them anymore! Are you kidding me? NONE of their other jeans fit me like these did and they hid the after having two kids belly so well. I’m so bummed!!!! =(
