These are a few of my favourite things!

A few years back, Oprah made talking about our favourite things popular again.  I remember watching one of her favourite things episodes and being overcome with envy by the amount of swag her audience members got that day.  I wanted the Burberry Trench!  And the gourmet goodies!  I wanted it all!

The funny thing was Oprah looked like she was having just as great a time talking about the things she loved as much as she did giving them away.  Who doesn't like talking about their favourite things?  Favourite things can give us comfort and reveal our passions to others.  

What are some of my favourite things right now?

I love beautiful clothes, shoes and purses, so one of my favourites is Purse Blog.  Not only do they feature the latest in designer bags to lust after, but they also recap my favourite reality show franchise:  the Real Housewives! 

Online Shopping:
Ebates is the most amazing online shopping website.  How it works:  sign into your Ebates.com account and from their homepage jump to thousands of the most popular online shopping websites including my favourites Sephora and Amazon.  Through Ebates, your purchases on these websites can either give you coupon codes to reduce your total at checkout or give you cash back into your Ebates account.  Last time I bought some staples at Sephora, I got $14 cash back!  All for just shopping.  Brilliant

It is really hard to pick one food item that I love, but my current obsession is the Red Velvet Whoopie Pie at Starbucks.  I get so excited when one of these in my hot little hands that about two bites later it is gone.  Totally worth the 190 calories though.

I love travelling to cities and exploring different neighbourhoods to shop, eat or people watch in.  Of all the places I've been, New York is the best place to do all those 3 things and more.  My first visit was about 5 years ago and I am planning my 3rd visit there this year.  

Right now I am in love with my new magenta handbag, so I would have to say Pink!  I also love purple though I don't have enough of it in my wardrobe.

Skin Care:
Clinque Even Better Clinical Dark Spot Corrector is amazing for evening out skin discolouration.

Smiths Rosebud Salve - I discovered this now staple in my beauty regimen a few years back.  Does wonders for chapped lips and dry cuticles.  I even have my brother addicted to it, though he would never admit it!

Those are just some of my current obessions...what are yours???
