Stuff I like

Taking a cue from Ms. Purl, here is a list of some stuff I like.

1.    Giovanni Tree Triple Treat Shampoo and Conditioner.  I love these!  I have been trying to simplify and “green” my beauty products.  I came across these after becoming dissatisfied with the longevity of my Aubry products.  It is not too expensive, and it gives a great tingling sensation.   My hair is fairly long; however, the conditioner does not weigh it down.  I have also tried the leave-in conditioner, but I find the smell unpleasant.

2.     Along with the natural product theme, I love my Burt’s Bees Garden Tomato Complexion Soap.   When my friend Suzanne first suggested it, I was doubtful; but she was totally right!  This stuff is great.  It smells a little odd at first, but it works.  They also have this soap called something goddess. It is in a green box.  They don’t have it on the website & the only place I can find it is Whole Foods, but it is one of the best smelling soaps I have ever used.  Yum!

3.     Novus Egyptian Mint Tea.  I am one of those people who want to be a tea lover.  I really do.  However, I just can’t seem to make it a daily part of my life.  Now, having said that, this is one I adore.  I can even drink it without any kind of sweetener, which is saying something.  My spa has it; and of course, no one around here has it – not even Whole Foods & they have everything.

4.    Old Fashioned Creme Drops. Nuff said. Yummy!

5.     Dr. Scholl’s Back Pain Inserts.   These are the only inserts I have found that actually work.  I suffered a back injury about eight years ago.  It flairs up often if I am on my feet for too long.  Knowing that I was not going to be able to wear my Birkenstock sandles once the temperatures started to dip, I was desperate to find something to make wearing close toed shoes bearable.  I stuck these in my boots and was able to walk around Rhinebeck without effort.  If you have back pain, you should try these.

  1. Have you tried teadog? You can probably google teadog and find the website. They have a lot of varieties. As for the tea, I love Adagio’s Ingenuitea tea maker. You can make one cup at a time, loose leaf, and it’s microwave safe. Mine has lasted a long time, too.
