Favorite Fifteen

Linda, from Calling It Home tagged me to share fifteen of my favorite things. I love her style.  You can see her favorite 15 HERE.

High fives to all these unpaid endorsements!!

1.  Bibliothetique Scented Candle  I just got this indulgence as a birthday present and the scent is wonderful for Fall.
2.  Jergen's Natural Glow  Living in the City means I have alabaster legs...this helps take the glare off.
3.  Soma Underwear This is a selfie of me (liar).  There are no panty lines and they are comfortable.  My sister told me about them.
4.  Chanel Sculpting Eyebrow Pencil  My eyes look more awake with subtly defined eyebrows.
5.  Uh oh.  What happened to 5?  Let me get back to you...
6.  L'Occitane Hand Cream  This is great little tube to keep in your purse.
7.  Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer  I love that it has sunscreen and lightly evens out skin tone. 
8.  Water Color Calendar  I like to show four months at a time on my bulletin board.  Time to buy a 2015 calendar already!
9.  Nespresso Capuccino Machine  Addicted.
10.  Fresh Almond Croissants  Semi-addicted.  Your house guests will be so impressed with the freshly baked scent coming from the kitchen (defrosted from the night before).  Add some bacon and they may never leave.
11.  Sugar Shaker  Any baked goods look prettier with a sprinkle of powdered sugar...or Debbie puts cocoa in hers to shake on her cappucino. 
12.  Fiddle Leaf Palm Tree...it makes me look like I have a green thumb with so little attention...the plant has the after noon sun a view of the Golden Gate Bridge.
13.  Take a walk!  With music and you will feel better!
14.  Pumpkin Cast Iron Pot  My husband bought this for me a few years ago and I love pulling it out at this time of year and use it for soups and stews and just as Fall décor in the kitchen.
15.  Nike Air Max  These are light weight to take on a trip...although I'm in NYC now and didn't bring them...lazy.

And back to number
5.  Chanel Nail Polish Annie from Most Lovely Things gave this to me yesterday.  Luxury! We had a fun day in New York and Connecticut which I will post about (with some photos of her gorgeous New England style home) soon.

Im tagging Delores from Vignette Design to post about her Favorite Fifteen next. She is moving to a new home San Francisco.  Yay!

Have a great weekend!

  3. Fun list! I'll be checking some of those things out. Happy Friday!

  4. love your picks! Soma rocks! if you've never tried their bras definitely pick one up. very comfortable and undetectable under t-shirts (aka my mom uniform). I've never been to trader joes but once i saw those croissants i'm thinking that's about to change.


  5. What a great list. I know what you mean about the eyebrows too. And yesterday I went to Home Depot to buy your #12 and a fellow customer told me they were SOOO hard to grow. Darn, I should've bought it. :)

  6. Mary Ann,
    Love your list! I do not know about Soma or the Chanel Sculpting eyebrow pencil! Your list is so balanced....right down to the sugar shaker that makes baked goods just a little more perfect! So you to think of that! AND #5...you are so thoughtful to include that in your list! You're amazing!

  7. I am laughing so hard over the 'selfie' comment. That eyebrow pencil looks like a must for me. All these years, I have been tinting my own moisturizer with a few drops of foundation. Who knew? You know that Nespresso machine is how I met you. Way back when you posted your former kitchen. Great list.

  8. I am going to have to try those Croissants! Love Laura Mercier. I am hoping one of those Nespresso Machines is in my future!! You have some great suggestions!!!

  9. What a fun idea...sharing your favorite things! Oprah does it, but I like your picks better! They are things I really could use! There are several things on your list that are my favs too! Hope you're having a great weekend!

  10. How fun is this? I've heard great things about Soma. Guess it's time to try them!!

  11. I love Bibliotheque Scented Candles and the Chanel fingernail polish looks so beautiful - love the soft pink! Happy weekend ~

  12. I must say some of these things would be on my list as well, Chanel nail polish, coffee, plants etc. Thank you for sharing your list!


It's SO nice to hear from you!
