And today I get to share some of my favorites from 2018! Here we go:

* Black & Cream Ribbon – this ribbon is beautiful and thick and can be used for gifts, to wrap silverware for a pretty table, for wreaths, anything! The cream and black are just classic and the 25 yard roll will last you a loooong time.

And speaking of ribbon, Walmart had some great ribbon for $2.50 in their Christmas department. I can’t find it online so keep your eyes open for it. It is kind of a canvas type material and has wire in it.

* Cover Your Assets – such a fun game our whole family loves. My sister Kerri got it for us last Christmas and it is a favorite. Goes by quickly and keeps you on your toes!

* Metal Nativity scene: I haven’t decorated for Christmas yet, but I got this sweet nativity scene at a local shoppe (same price) and l can’t wait to use it – maybe with greens and little lights behind it? We shall see…

* Leather bags from The Leather Store ♥ I got one last year for Christmas and have loved it! I wanted a leather bag without logos and this fit the bill. Beautiful, thick, high quality leather with the prettiest flower lining and nice zippers and pockets and shipping is so fast!

* These jute baskets with the little leather handle! ♥ So cute to put a plant in or add some texture to any spot.

* Retinol Cream – I think this works better than expensive brands I have tried. I can honestly tell a difference when I use it. Here is a tip – I swear this is the same formula as some other brands on Amazon (like Baebody and another is FineVine) so choose the least expensive one.

* Okay, Thymes Frasier Fir candles have made plenty of Favorite Things lists through the years but the price kind of held me back, especially when I love the $10 (on sale) Bath & Body Works Winter and Fresh Balsam candles!  But you need to check your local TJ Maxx, because I found a couple there for $12.99!! This baby is so strong – it’s like Fresh Balsam on steroids and has a 50 hour burn time. So, so good for Christmas and a beautiful gift! You can smell it through the box.

The Idealisk Colander from Ikea! It expands to fit your sink and has feet to sit on – so handy! $7.99

* These white wax warmers from Walmart – so simple, only $7 and can go anywhere.

* Oreo Pistachio Thins: I can thank my SIL Kristine for the obsession on this one. I am a pistachio head, I love most everything pistachio and these are no exception, probably because they are heavy on the almond. I think they would be a 10 if they were golden Oreos instead of the chocolate but these are still an 8 for me. Yummmmmm.

* Everything but the Bagel Seasoning from Trader Joe’s. So good on avocado toast, eggs, or to spruce up a plain bagel with plain cream cheese. Buy it in-store for $1.99

While we’re on the subject of plants – one of my favorite places to buy pots is at Ikea.

The smaller Muskot is $3.99 and the larger Gradvis $5.99. And I am not an expert at keeping plants alive but snake plants are the easiest to keep alive! I got one at Ikea and another at a local nursery.

Maybelline SuperStay Foundation I love this foundation and I have tried so many! Full coverage, goes on so smoothly and stays.

* H&M Purl-knit sweater – a perfect sweater that looks good on everyone. It runs big though, order a size down!

If you use Marco Polo or just need your phone at eye level to use navigation, this phone holder from the Dollar Tree has been perfect for me! Can’t beat the price, either.
