Lea's Favorites




Every so often I like to share some of my favorites with you.  I always enjoy knowing about other folks favorite items, as they just might become one of my favorites too.  So, here's a few of mine, in no particular order.





Oh, my goodness! I LOVE the sweet and salty combination of these.  And, just one of these generally gives me the satisfaction I want and a bag will last me a while.  Now, don't get me wrong, I truly could eat the entire bag as they aren't that big.  But, I exercise self control. ~chuckle~  Sometimes I have a hard time finding these.  I recently found this really big bag at Sam's and grabbed it like it was gold.  Every so often I find the small bags at Wal-Mart but not often. If you can't find it at your local grocery store, you can order it here.


I have recently started using this gel eyeliner by Bobbi Brown.  I've used pencil eyeliner for years and years but I really like this gel.  I use an angled eyeliner brush to apply it and it glides on very smoothly.  And, it seems that the "tails" on eyeliner are making a comeback and while I'm sure not going to wear thick ones, I'm sort of enjoying a "thin tail."  Many moons ago I was an expert at thick eyeliner with thick tails. ~big smile~  This color is called Dipdown - a black brown and can be ordered here.
These a new favorite of mine.  I do not own a pet but these pet Swiffer cloths that fit on the Swiffer mop are the BEST.  I've been using a regular dust mop under our beds, in the corners and behind furniture, etc.  But, these are sooooo much easier to use and they grab dust and lint so well.  I just saw them one day while I was looking for Swiffer Duster refills and decided to give them a try.  I've always just used the regular Swiffer dry pads on my mop but these are a notch above for sure.  There are just places that these are better than a vacuum. ~in my opinion~ I get mine at Wal-Mart or you can order them from Wal-Mart here.




These are the Taj Mahal of lounging pajamas! They are  Cool Nights by Soma.  I do not sleep in pajamas and never have, can't stand anything on my legs.  I prefer a sleep shirt.  Anyway, these are my "go to" after dinner when we're doing nothing but staying home.  Fabulous fabric, washes beautifully and you can order them here.






I make labels pretty much everyday of my life.  I ran across this little jewel a few weeks ago and just had to have one.  It's the Niimbot Label Maker.  It is a thermal, not ink, label printer.  You bluetooth it to your smart phone and operate it totally from your phone.  It took me longer than a few seconds to figure it out but it really isn't difficult at all.  I did go to You Tube and watch an instructional video on how it works and that served me much better than the directions that came with it.  I have already made a whole bunch of labels with it and it comes in the coolest colors. You can order here.


That's all for now, so go and have yourself a wonderful Halloween weekend!

  5. Some good suggestions. A couple years ago while in Indiana, I found sets of lounging pj's like yours at Costco and bought one in every color. I have worn the dickens out of them. I love having something like that to put on after church on Sundays or any other stay-home day. When up north, I always take a tube scarf to wear around my neck to help with warmth, but they are my go-to cool/cold weather outfit.
