Lea's Favorites

There's no Hodgepodge today so I thought I'd share some more of My Favorites with you.  I seem to have a lot of them lately and why would I keep them to myself when they might become your favorite as well.  I've always liked to hear what others' favorites are and then it gives me reason to try it. So, here's to more of my favorites.........

Ladies, if you do not have one of these and you hate digging for your keys,then you need to get one ASAP!  I don't even like pulling my keys out of a key pocket on the inside of my purse, much less digging to find them.  I've had one of these for a couple of years and I could be a poster girl for the company.  It simply hangs on the edge of your purse with the keys falling to the inside. purse!  They make a great gift too! 

Talk about a quick breakfast!  Simply pull the top off, fill with water up to the line, stir, microwave for 45 seconds and wala it's ready to eat! I do add a tad of butter but it definitely doesn't need any sugar/sweetner.  I use milk instead  of water in mine and it's a bit more creamy.  And, it comes in several flavors, this one just happens to be my favorite.  And, just throw the empty container in the trash.  You can't beat it and it's healthy eating too. ~it's win win~

This is the neatest item to add to your cleaning closet, the Hurricane Spin Scrubber.  It is battery operated (not rechargeable) and has a lot of power.  I got it to use cleaning our big walk in shower and also for our front and back porches.  You just need a bucket of water, whatever cleaning agent you want to use, and your Hurricane scrubber.  As you can see from the picture, it has 3 different heads, depending on what you are going to be using it on, and it extends to almost 4 feet.  So, no more bending over, just stand and guide it where you want it and watch it work.  Yes, it can be found on Amazon and also Bed Bath and Beyond.  Why anyone would want to go into a BB&B where everything is crammed into the store and the aisles are barely passable, is beyond me, but that's your choice.  I'll choose Amazon any day! 😊

It is rare for me to use dry shampoo but 2-3 times a year I find myself in a bind and need some.  A friend of mine told me about Dirty Secret and I decided to give it a try. It is truly amazing!  I was very nervous the first time I used it but there was no need to be.  It added life to my hair and bought  me another day before I washed my hair and that was my "Dirty Secret." ~chuckle~


Nothing makes my calendar happier than colored pens!  Yes, I still use a wall calendar for our appointments and meetings.  I have had a wall calendar for sooooo many years and while I do love my IPhone calendar and my Outlook calendar, there's just no replacing my trusty wall calendar.  I keep up with birthdays on my Iphone and Outlook calendar.  And, yes, it's fun using these colorful pens to write our appointments and meetings and it makes for a happy and colorful calendar. 😊


I saw these in our local cake shop a few weeks ago and decided that I "needed" them.  The shop owner said that folks will use them to make small cookie cakes and when she said that, I had to get them.  I tried them out last week by making a chocolate chip cookie in one of the pans and it turned out beautifully.  I sprayed the pan with Pam and the cookie came right out after it had cooled.  Of course, these pans would work great for a thin layered cake as well, but I imagine I'll do more cookie making with mine or perhaps mini pizzas.  They are 8" in diameter and cost $15.  I thought that was a pretty good deal and they make for some fun baking!

That's it for my favorites today!  Hoping your 2017 has gotten off to a great start, ours has been uneventful thus far and,that's a good thing.  We won't turn around twice and the year will be half gone, so make each day count and never forget to do good and be kind.

  1. I love that cake pan set! I've been watching a lot of the Great British Bake-Off - some of the bakes call for very thin layers and I've watched the bakers struggle to slice a cake into thinner layers. They need these pans! Thanks for sharing.

  6. I just received those Papermate flair colored pens from Amazon yesterday :) I love them and have been using them on my new planner. I also bought a set of Stabilo colored pens because I heard they work well for writing and love those too. I'm glad to hear you like the Hurricane Spin Scrubber, I've been thinking of getting one.

  7. Thanks for all the 'product reviews'!! Where do you buy the Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo (or do you order that on Amazon, too?)

    Those Papermate pens look like a lot of fun!

  8. I'm so glad that there's another old-fashioned calendar-loving gal like me! So much easier to cope with than those itty-bitty iPhone calendars or even the iPad ones.

  9. I think I "need" one of those scrubbers. It will be Amazon for me, I am a big fan of Amazon and in our area they have same day delivery for some items, it's pretty cool!

  11. I used a mop to clean my bathroom shower the other day, because I hate reaching in to scrub by hand, but now, I see I need to order that spin scrubber. And I can't wait to try out that dry shampoo. Have a great weekend, Lea!
