Five on Friday

Today, I am sharing five of my favorite things.
Most of them are new to me but one is a longtime favorite and a necessity in my home.
What are some of your favorite things???

1. This is kind of a double because I LOVE a good Moscow Mule
and I especially love them now that a few of my sweet friends gave
me some mugs for my birthday.  I was sooooooo excited when I
found the beautifully wrapped Elebash's box on my front porch because
I knew what was inside.  Click the mugs for a link to Neiman's website
or locals find them at Elebash's and Artesana!

2. Ok, it is no secret around WMTH that I LOVE Oribe products.  Honestly, I
do not think I have met one that I did not like. That being said...last week,
at my much needed appointment with Cortney at Style, I was introduced to
the Imperial Blowout.  New on the market and just available in retail stores
this month, it does not disappoint. Cortney gave me a sample to try at
home and I am sold.  It gives added body and texture that lasts for several days.
Available online, or locally at Style.

3. What do I use to dry my hair after use the Imperial Blowout Creme?
THIS Moroccan Oil blow dryer. After my Babylis died last winter, my
sweet neighbor loaned me her extra dryer until I bought a new one.
I was thinking that I wanted the same one until Cortney at Style
said she could order this one for me. It is what they use at the
salon and it brings enjoyment to the otherwise painful task
of blow drying my hair.

4. Now I know Mrs. Meyer's is nothing new since Oprah put it on her
Favorite Things list years ago BUT I love the basil scent in my kitchen.
I am really picky about the smell of hand soap, dish soap, and countertop
cleaner. It has to be a fresh smell and one that would typically be found
in the kitchen.  If you have not smelled this, check it out next time you
are at Target (unless you hate basil, then you know what not to try).

5.  The angels are singing on this one. Have Keurig. Will travel.
I have taken this thing on the Gillips beach weekend, to Blue Lake
and countless other places that already had coffee makers.
I fill it each night with water and have a bowl of k-cups on the counter
next to it. The thought gets me out of bed each morning.

    1. I agree! They are all good! The blow dry creme is great! Oribe products are kind of expensive but they work so well and last a long time.
