Wright's Silver Cream Polish.
I just threw away my second jar of this stuff that I've had, I believe, since 2003.
It is the BEST silver cleaner EVER. I use it on all of my silver jewelry and just used it on some candle holders. It never fails - the items that I just polished are GLEAMING and happy.

It's about $8 on amazon. Or, if you're in Ohio - I know you can buy it at Kroger's.

Philosophy Eye Hope
I'm not getting any younger. This eye cream goes on like SILK and literally photoshops away your crow's feet in real life. Ok, I don't have full-blown crow's feet around my eyes -- but let's be honest, I have the beginnings of said wrinkles and this serum (?) is fantastic. And, I swear it helps decrease and/or eliminate dark, "I-have-a-baby-and-I-don't-get-a-lot-of-sleep" under-eye circles. I got this as a gift and as it turns out, I LOVE this stuff. Need more. Stat.

Available here.

Water with Fruit
Since I'm still nursing I tend to drink a ridiculous amount of water throughout the day. Just recently, water has been getting somewhat tedious and boring. I've rediscovered the addition of adding limes, raspberries, cranberry juice - you name it - to my water. MMMmmm... Who loves water again?! Me! Me! LOVE it.

Watch Modern Family. I truly believe it's the funniest show on TV. If you're still not watching this show, you're missing out. If you've watched this show and it wasn't funny to you, you weren't in the right mood. Try it again and allow yourself to experience funny.  (Thursdays on ABC. Or if you're in the States, go to the website and watch it there.)

Kenpo P90-X

I love this workout. Especially when I'm not in a super-great mood. I mean, who doesn't like to punch and kick for an hour? See video clip here and here.


  1. I love Eye Hope too as well as Hope in a Jar (it's like a drink of water for your skin, seriously)...the Philosophy line is great!

    I'm gonna try your water suggestions...thanks! :)

  2. I like Kenpo, too. It's my fave. I'd like to take another kickboxing class (I took one in college) where I can actually punch things - not just the air. :)

    I also like water. I gave up pop about 6 months ago, so I drink only water and tea now, and man, do I feel a ton better!

  3. Spirit yells. It's all about the yelling for me. I LOVE TONY!

  4. Have you ever used that silver polish on jewelry that has stones?

  5. Nadja - Yes, I have used it on jewelry that has stones. I just don't actually "scrub" the stone with it because it doesn't (in my experience) hurt OR help it. It just makes the silver uber-shiny.

    I'm willing to wager that Jenna has some of that at their house - she introduced it to me 13 years ago.

  6. I love my Bobbi Brown eye cream, but I have heard good things about Eye Hope and am going to try it. Plus I got a Sephora gift card from dear friend, S. YAY! :)

    And I LOVE Modern Family. First time I saw it I was sitting in Macy's dressing room unabashedly busting a gut.
