It's a busy day for me each week. Laundry and grocery day. But I really look forward to one Monday night a month. It's GIRLS NIGHT OUT! For years now, a group of 6 to 10 of my friends get together one Monday night a month. Back in January, I shared with you some of the things we do. Here's the link in case you'd like to check it out.
Last Monday was my favorite annual girls night-Favorite things.
Each of us creates a list of 5 or so of our favorite things (can be anything from events, to beauty items to kids stuff, stores, you get the gist). Then, we bring an item (or two) that adds up to $10 (wrapped up). We usually meet up the Cheesecake Factory. MMMM.
Who goes first? You can draw numbers to see who picks a bag first. I was chosen to pick first this time because I arrived a little early to ensure we had our table ready ;) Whoever brought the bag that is chosen reads their favorite thing list, then the girl who picked the gift opens it. It is way less complicated than it sounds ;)
Today, I'm going to share my favorite things, plus a few of my favorite home girls (yes, I just wrote home girls) favorite things!
Without further ado... Here's my list...
China Glaze Nail Polish-Purple Panic
Contigo Water BottleLast month, I did my fabulous find Friday on these water bottles. They are originally $10 each but I got three for $15 at Costco. I love them and have one in my hand all the time.
Origins Liquid Summer Lip Color
This is a great summery lip gloss. There really isn't much color to it but it gives your lips long lasting shine and has a great minty zing. It looks great over color, too.
Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray
Island Way Sorbet
$1 bin at TargetLove all of the goodies I find there. Who doesn't?
Arbonne skin conditioning oil
I use this stuff all of the time. On my nails, for cuts and bruises on the kids, dry skin and best of all bikini line after shaving (this led our group into a crazy long discussion on Brazilian waxing.)
I wrapped up the China Glaze nail polish and a Contigo water bottle. I received Orly Rubberized Base Coat. I'm excited to try it out.
A couple things I want to check out after hearing the girls favorite things...
My Fitness Pal app - $5, keeps track of your calorie burn and what you eat. Takes the guess work out of weight loss, while not making you feel like you are dieting at all. My friend lost 16lbs using it.
Kiss Nail Stickers- these look just like the flowers they paint on at the salon and stay for a long time, too.
I have one of these. Great idea. No mess way to spread butter onto your corn.
Well, that's a wrap. Won't you share some of your favorite things in the comments section? I love getting reviews from other women before trying something. I hope you enjoyed favorite things! And you didn't even have to spend $10 on cheesecake.
