I found this idea for a post on MomDot. This is such a fun question because you will be forced to think about your favorite things and that’s always a happy thought. 🙂
These favorite things could be products or actions (hugs) or people.
I decided to make my list about the products I need each and every day.
With these types of lists, I try to jot down the first items that come to mind, rather than thinking too much about it.
1. Trader Joe’s Gluten Free Granola
This granola really gets me going each morning. A few weeks ago, there were no granola bags available in the cereal section at TJs, and I panicked. I tracked down a TJ employee and asked them to make sure this had not been discontinued. He assured me they were just sold out, not discontinued. So, for about a week, I had to go without.
For some reason, I’m just very addicted to this stuff. Its the perfect start to the day for me.
The granola did indeed show up on the cereal shelves the following week, and I bought 8 bags. Please Trader Joe’s, hear my plea – do not ever discontinue these morsels of goodness.
2. Green Tea
At this point, I drink about 3 mugs of green tea per day. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I really enjoy the TAZO Green Zen Tea that I buy at Starbucks on occasion. At home, I drink all sorts of green teas, from Lipton to Yogi, to Celestial Seasonings to Stash. I usually will choose one that is on sale at Safeway or try a new interesting looking one at Trader Joe’s.
I really like many different types, and know how great this tea is for me, so don’t feel guilty drinking as much of it as I want throughout the day.
I used to drink orange juice in the morning, but I kicked that habit to the curb a few months ago, when I decided to make better beverage choices. There are so many drinks that are loaded with hidden sugars.
And, for me, eating a chocolate chip cheesecake is totally worth the sugar, but its not worth it for a glass of orange juice.
3. Sephora Waterproof Retractable Eyeliner in Brown
I have discussed this eyeliner in a previous post, but I will say again. This is, hands down, the BEST eyeliner I have ever used in my life.
I have red hair, so my eyelashes are blond. I really rely on my eyeliner and mascara in the morning to highlight my eyes. This eyeliner goes on so smooth and the brown color has a very slight sparkle to it. SO perfect.
4. Lancome Hynose Doll Lashes Mascara
As mentioned in item number 3, my mascara is very important to me. I think if I were stranded on an island, and I could only choose one beauty product, this would probably be it.
I have tried COUNTLESS mascaras, and have finally settled on this one. I will probably always be up for trying the latest and greatest, but as of right now, this is the only mascara that gives my lashes lift and volume, without flaking or smudging. I think flaking is my number one pet peeve, and this mascara simply does not flake. I just love it. Thank you Lancome!
5. A Sweet
Let’s face it. If we’re being honest with ourselves, it is very difficult to get through a whole day without a sweet.
I try to hold out until the afternoon to have a sweet. I like all sweets: cookies, cakes, chocolate etc.. If I have made a homemade sweet, this is my ultimate sweet treat.
Below are pictures of recent homemade sweets I’ve made and thoroughly enjoyed.
I’m sure I will think of other important daily items, but these were the very first items to pop into my mind.
What are your five items you could not live without daily?
