Favorite Things Party

best gifts under $15

This year I asked some of my girlfriends, the original favorite things party girls, to submit their favorite things along with mine:

Gussy: Essie Nail Polish in Mint Candy Apple $6.05

Ellen: Dipped Measuring Cups “One of my favorite things is fancy measuring cups. I spend so much time in the kitchen and sometimes, especially at the end of a long day, I like a bit of pretty when I’m putting together dinner.” $12.99


Tracy:“I have been dying to tell everyone about this eye cream (yes, I am an old lady and now need eye cream BUT this stuff works!) I have been using it for over a year and it truly brightens the skin around my eyes, is very moisturizing and smells divine”.Organic Coffee Bean Eye Cream,… by 100% Pure Cosmetics for $12.50

Caroline: She never steers me wrong.  If she likes something, then I’m sure to like it.  The only thing that makes me worry about our friendship is that she can’t eat dairy.  I’m always all “you can’t eat cheese? What else is there to even eat?” I’m astounded that she survives without cheese. Anyway, one of her favorite things is : House at Riverton

When I googled the book all these covers came up.

My newest favorite thing is the Nature’s Wick candle in Vanilla Dolce.  Caroline and her family spent a few days at our house last month and now this candle is on her favorite things list too.  It’s a wooden wick candle that crackles as it burns.  Someone even made a youtube video of  it crackling. My boys insist that I light this candle every night.  I usually buy them at Target for about $14 (they don’t have my flavor online) but sometimes I can find them at Home Goods for $11ish.  I don’t ever buy that size pictured because it’s a 3 wick, and although I can imagine how a symphony of 3 wood wicks burning at the same time sounds, my experience with three wick candles is that they burn away faster than regular one wick candles.  I like the single wick.

And I have one more, Hayley told us about this Persian Garden Oil, when she came to my house back in the spring she smelled wonderful, this is why.  It’s $7.99 and I get compliments all the time.

Your turn, what’s your favorite thing (or things) this year?

  21. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
