Day Four of My favorite things...

Cosmetics/health and Beauty... are you riveted yet?

Lucky you Perfume, I adore this scent.

I typically use the lightest option of these shampoos.

I use the Revlon foundation now, because Max Factor is no more... or at least not in any of my stores. But the Max Factor foundation used to be my all time favorite.

Avon eyeshadow quad in Romantic Mauve... Love it!

MAC Lipstick... it's the only kind I can tolerate, it doesn't have a funky smell or feeling and it stays put pretty well.

Tressemme hair spray... love this stuff because it holds pretty well without turning your hair into a helmet like shield.

Oil of Olay Moisturizer... just like it, no particular reason.

Maybelline Full n soft mascara. This stuff stays on the best for me... no flaking, bleeding or smudging.

Day 3 My Favorite Things...

*yawn* I am so tired. This has been a hard week, one of my coworkers moved to a different division, I found out my favorite attorney is leaving, and my case load grew exponentially... and to make it more interesting, it grew with many many MANY more appellate matters. There is a learning curve when it comes to appellate matters... one I have yet to completely wrap my brain around, which makes it exhausting. Luckily, I have a lot of fantastic teachers in my coworkers and attorneys, so they definitely help me muddle through. But the learning process itself is stressful and tiring.

So in honor of a very long day and an even longer week (which is not yet over because I am going to work tommorrow), I give you my favorite ways to relax.

1. Mindlessly Surfing the Web.

2. Lots of Moscato.

3. Mindless TV

4. Lots of sleeping

5. zoning out with my iphone... whether it's listening to music, surfing youtube or just playing games. I blow off a lot of steam this way.

6. And probably my most common way of dealing... burying my head in the sand. It's easier than thinking about what lies directly ahead or how the day went. Survival mechanism, anyone?

My Favorite Things Day 2

Did you know that I hate musicals as a rule of thumb? There are of course exceptions to this rule... The Sound of Music being one and Greast being another. But typically, not a fan. I didn't expect to like Glee... I certainly didn't expect it to become the highlight of my week. But it is. I love it.
My favorite Glee numbers...

Gwyneth covering Cee-Lo


One Love ♥ I love me some Artie.

Hey Soul Sister



I want to hold your hand... probably my most favorite glee moment... I tear up and get the chills every single time I hear it. Could've been because of the episode subject matter, but man... he nailed it.

Other Glee songs I love but couldn't find videos of:

Funny Girl

Still alive... and My Favorite Things Day One

In yet another attempt to get myself back into journaling/blogging/spewing nonsense on the web, I think for the month of December I will be writing about my favorite things. I love seeing other people's recommendations when it comes to music, movies, products etc. So, that's what I'm going to aim to do. Let's see how it goes.

So My first day of favorite things ... let's discuss Music.

Right now I am hooked on a few songs...

Take it Off by The Donnas.... seriously, cannot get enough of this song. I have liked it for a long time, but right now I'm totally hooked.

I'm Yours/Over the Rainbow by Straight No Chaser... I'm also big into accapella right now, probably thanks to Glee. This song makes me happy.

Telephone by Lady Gaga ... I didn't link to the actual video because it bugs me. But I LOVE LOVE LOVE this song... I don't know what it is.

Winner by Jamie Foxx, Justin Timberlake and T.I. I just absolutely cannot get enough of this... totally makes me happy.

You're a Wolf by Sea Wolf ... Sundry linked to this song a while back and I fell in love with it. It is just hauntingly beautiful. I frequently listen to this on repeat, just can't get enough.

Here it Goes Again by OK Go... as usualy, the later I am to the party, the more I love the song... I am HOOKED on this song right now! I have loved the video since it was new, but now I just adore the song.

and there you have it. My favorite songs right now.
