CamelBak Water Bottle

I love it when someone shares one of their Favorite Things with me, as it often becomes one of my favorites, too! This Pearl comes from my friend, Liv. She tipped me off to these CamelBak Water Bottles. My old water bottle lost it's little rubber seal and I ended up with a soggy tennis bag, so I was in the market for a new one. This Camelbak water bottle is dishwasher safe and has a spill-proof bite valve straw. It holds 750 ml - enough to really hydrate. I'll admit, every now and then, I forget about the straw part and tip it up to drink and get nothing but air, but that should improve with practice. And, the straw makes it safer as it doesn't block your view when driving. There are lots of color choices - enough so that you could have a different color for each member of your family. I ordered mine from Amazon, but I have also seen them at Dick's Sporting Goods in our area.

Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss Trio

This is my all-time favorite lip gloss - Bobbi Brown Lip Tint. I love the hint of mint flavor, the beautiful colors, the SPF 15 protection and the easy, discreet application (No Messy Wand!). Now you can get a special holiday gift set - 3 lips tints for $28 - a steal as a single tube is around $17-18. And the colors are beautiful ~ Cherry ~ a sheer red; Blossom ~ a soft pink that I think I might save until spring; and Twilight Shimmer ~ a pretty neutral. You can find Bobbi Brown cosmetic counters at Nordstrom or Saks, or order direct from their website.

Creme Brulee Almonds

If you are nutty for almonds like I am, then run, don't walk, to your nearest Sam's Club for some Creme Brulee Almonds. They are heavenly! Toasted almonds with a sweet cream layer, dusted in a thin layer of carmelized sugar. What's not to like? If you are not a Sam's Club member, google them and "Squirrel Brand" should pop up, which can be ordered from Amazon. These are soooo good!
