These are a few of my (current) favorite things...

Chenille
I bought both a pair of socks and a pair of house slippers from Old Navy during their Black Friday super sale, and I lurve them. They are both made of chenille and are the most ridunkulously comfortable things I have ever, ever experienced. And I'm not even a sock person! (I get hot when I sleep with them on and wind up kicking them off during the night.) I will NOT be kicking off these socks during the night, though. They are like having fluffy clouds on your feet. Next on my wish list? A chenille robe! Actually, I honestly think I'd love anything made out of chenille now! Why don't they make regular clothes out of this material?!




Murad Facial Products
These products are the bomb. My skin, which used to be praised for looking like "porcelain" when I was in high school, has decided to revolt on me during my 30's. It turned super oily overnight and I've even been breaking out regularly. :( It's like my skin forgot to act up during high school and is paying me back for it now. The two products I've been using lately that seem to be helping are Noxzema (in the shower) and Murad. I especially love the Murad products -- they have everything from zit cream to moisturizer. And I've used them all and love them all. They've cleared up my skin without overdrying it, and their moisturizer is my new best friend. You can find them on Sephora. I highly recommend them if you have skin issues or just want to keep your skin in good condition.


 

Herbal Essences
Just like my face, my hair became oily overnight recently. I used to get away with washing my hair every two to three days. Now I have to wash it every other day or risk looking like a drowned rat. I think the Brazilian straightening treatment I've been doing on my hair might be the cause of this (it uses keratin, a moisturizer, to help straighten the wayward follicles). Whatever the cause may be, I've had to stop using moisturizing shampoos and conditioners, which is hard to do when you dye your hair and blow-dry/iron your hair as often as I do. I don't want to dry it out, but I want it to be clean. What's the solution? Herbal Essences! I love their "Drama Clean" shampoo and conditioner. It literally leaves my hair squeaky clean (no, really -- it was squeaking as I towel dried it the other day! :p).




Caramel Brulee Latte (Starbucks)
Words cannot describe how much I love the Caramel Brulee Latte from Starbucks. @MyTwiLife recommended it to me, and it is, as she so aptly puts it, "heaven in a cup." It's not too sweet, just the perfect amount of caramel and sugar. Oh great... I just made myself crave one.

 

"Alice" by Cocteau Twins (song)
I fricking love this song. For serious. (Yes, I'm stealing your phrase, Robyn. ;p) I first heard it in the trailer for "The Lovely Bones" and it was love at first listen. The song is just so uplifting. Listening to it makes me feel like I'm weightless, floating.

Alas, I didn't like the Caramel Brulee latte :[ I was expecting some hint of a creme brulee flavour, but I just wasn't feeling it.

The gingerbread latte, however, I've today for the fifth time in about a week.
