Favorite Things 2022: my SIL Maryn!

15 November 2022

Please welcome my sister in law, Maryn!! Maryn is a busy mom of 5 and also teaches elementary school and is always inspiring me with her workouts, planning fun girl getaways, and finding good new things and always lets me know the CHIP cookies worth trying out. 😎 Here are her favorites:

 Lysol Laundry Sanitizer

This is a new favorite for me when doing my laundry. I use this with all of our gym and athletic clothes. Since most athletic fabrics aren’t supposed to use fabric softener, I add this in the fabric softener dispenser and it disinfects and makes the clothes smell fresh and clean. 

Chapstick total hydration Moisture +Tint 

I always need some kind of moisturizer on my lips especially living in a dry climate. I have tried so many different lip balms and these are my favorite. They are creamy and stay on well and the best part is they have different shades so you look like you put on lipstick. I have tried many different shades and I love them all! 

Nike Air Max Thea Mid 

I absolutely love these shoes. They are stylish and so cute to pair with jeans or other pants. They are so easy to slip on and lets not forget, they are Air Max’s so they are SO comfortable. Living in a college town, I have gotten so many compliments from college age students, so I feel hip and stylish. I loved the brown so much that I just ordered them in black too.


Loreal True Match Lumi Glotion Natural Glow Enhancer 

When it comes to makeup, I like a fresh, natural look with a little bit of glow and this does just that. It is light and goes on easily and also makes my skin feel hydrated. I put it under my foundation and it gives me a natural looking glow. 

Bath and Body Works Tree Farm 3- wick candle 

I love burning candles in my home and this is my favorite at Christmas time.  It is a combination of pine, cedar and spiced apple.   

La Banderita Carb Counter Tortillas 

These are my go to when I am counting my Macros. They taste very similar to regular flour tortillas. I use them for several things and you can even cut them up in triangles and put a little bit of oil or cooking spray and salt and bake them in the oven or air fryer to make your own chips. 

Sam’s Club Premium Rose Bouquet 

I love having fresh flowers in my house and these particular boutiques are in the Club for $19.99 and they are GORGEOUS and look like they came from an expensive florist. They have roses, other flowers, and different unique fillers mixed in.  They also have unique combinations so I always have different looking bouquets to enjoy.   Rewrap them in some brown paper with some pretty ribbon and they look amazing to give as a gift as well. 

Nivea Skin Firming Hydration Lotion and Skin Firming Gel

This is the best lotion and gel I have ever used.  It goes on so easily and makes my skin so smooth and keeps them smooth all day.  It also helps tighten your skin and I do feel a difference when I consistently use it. It also qualifies with my Flex Spending Account on Amazon so that is a bonus!

Electric Candle Lighter Rechargeable USB Lighter 

I hate having to buy matches and having to worry about them breaking, burning my fingers etc. This is rechargeable and is so easy to light your candles.


Minky Couture Blanket

The softest and best blankets around. Mine have washed up beautifully. Just wash on delicate and air dry. They are worth the money! 

Get Out of Your Head: Stopping the Spiral of Toxic Thoughts by Jennie Allen

This book was a Goodreads Choice Award Nominee and it  resonated with me SO much. Written from a Christian perspective the author helps us learn to transform our emotions, our outlook, and even our circumstances by taking control of our thoughts so that we can choose hope in the midst of chaos and shift negative thinking patterns. 

The Jolly Postman and The Jolly Christmas Postman by Janet and Allan Ahlberg

As an Elementary teacher, I have always had a love for collecting children’s picture books. These are some of my favorites! With correspondence between Mother Goose and Fairy Tale characters in real letters that children can take out and read which makes the books so fun and unique!

The Greatest Gift- Andrea, Matteo, and Virginia Bocelli 

What could be better than 3 Bocelli’s singing together. This is a new song on their Christmas Album and I have it on repeat.  It is beautiful!

Thank you for the wonderful favorites, Maryn! ♥ The other 2022 Favorites can all be found here!
