A Few Favorites...

1.  A perfect t-shirt.  I searched near and far for the perfect t-shirt. I tried Gap, Kohls, Target, H&M, you name it.  But nothing was quite right.  I didn't even know exactly what I was looking for.  But I did know either it didn't fit quite right (too short, not soft enough, arm length too short, etc.), it didn't hold up after a few washes, or the material wasn't soft enough.

Then one day {a few years ago}, I was shopping at the Mall of America.  I saw a girl wearing the exact t-shirt I had been searching for!  Hers was blue.  It was v-neck, just the right amount.  The sleeves were just the right length; and the shirt was a little longer.  Perfect!

So I had to ask her where it was from.  Hopefully she didn't think I was too strange. Turns out she was friendly and said it was from American Apparel.  Back then, the only American Apparel around was in Uptown, so I had to drive all the way there, just for a t-shirt.  Thankfully now there is one at the Mall of America.  I wear these t-shirts to bed, to work-out, and even when I was pregnant I wore a size bigger all throughout my pregnancy

2.  Hanky Panky.  Have you tried Hanky Panky underwear? They are just the best.  It's hard to believe that comfortable and cute can coexist, but they can!  I find them at Nordstrom's Rack for half-price, and they are worth every penny (of the sale price at least)!

3.  Socks!  Since I'm blogging about underwear, I might as well blog about socks.  These are no secret, but I still love them. Smartwool socks.  My feet are always cold, so wool socks keep them warm, and these ones aren't too thick either.

4.  The. Best. Mascara. Ever.  Truly, I cannot say it enough, and I don't think I'll ever need to buy another kind.  L'Oreal Double Extend Beauty Tubes Mascara.  I read somewhere about a new "tube" technology, so I thought I would give it a try, and now I'm hooked. It's quite different from regular mascara.  It makes my lashes look much longer than normal, it doesn't leave black residue under my eyes, ever, and when you wash it off, it comes off in clumps instead of streaks (kind of weird at first to get used to).  Best part is, it comes off with just soap and water. 

5.  Brilliant Shine Mist.  I'm not sure how I ended up buying hair products at this place, but I absolutely love this stuff.  It's So Sexy Brilliant Shine Mist by Victoria's Secret.  I like the aeresol spray, it smells really good (probably don't even need to wear perfume), and it makes your hair super shiny. 

Hope you enjoyed hearing about a few of my favorite things!
