Sometimes you just find a product or website that helps you look and feel your best! What good would it be if I didn’t spread the word on my five favorite fabulous finds! Check out these five items that I pamper myself with each day – while you might have heard about most of these – almost no one knows what I use for my “angry eyes”!

I have written about Monat before and still cannot stop talking about how much I love how my hair looks after using these products. I do feel it has helped tremendously to curb my hair thinning/hair loss. Be certain to check out my story if you have dealt with this in the past. Granted, there is a bit of sticker shock, but I only buy it about every 3 months. I do supplement with other shampoos occasionally (while at the gym, salon, etc.) and can tell when I haven’t used my Monat.
My favorite system is the Densify Duo System and Intense Conditioner set. I only use about a dime/nickel size amount of product for each wash, and that is even with shoulder-length hair. While the 8oz bottles appear small, they have been lasting me about 4 months each. I generally wash my hair usually 2-3 times per week and that little amount of shampoo goes a long way – even with the two washes each shower.
This is my other luxury. I love to pamper my skin. A few years ago I was introduced to Rodan + Fields products and my face has never been happier! There are two systems I tend to bounce back and forth between and both have my face looking its best!
First, the Soothe line helps eliminate the redness that this Irish heritage girl tends to have. Step four, the sunblock, has been a lifesaver this summer – no unexpected burns yet when I am outside more than anticipated!
The Redefine line is one that I need to use every winter to help hydrate a bit more and tackle those fine lines. The mask/cleanser is easy to use and the night and day lotions are easy to apply. I do love a good toner and the second step toner is something I look forward to each time I get this kit!
While there are many additional products you can order (the AMP MD system I love using for my neck or their Lash Boost) the one item each lady needs in her skin routine is the Eye Cream. I have used this each and every night for years and feel it has earned its place as a “must-have” in my beauty routine!
Now that you have your hair and skin in check, how about those lips? Some things are a must
LimeLife by Alcone has the most amazing lip gloss and lip colors available. I put them on in the morning and voila! they last all day. The best part of the gloss is they are easy to put on and have a little mirror on the tube, perfect for on the go!
One of my favorite movies is Toy Story. The part where Mrs. Potato Head helps pack Mr. Potato Head for the Woody rescue mission and packs his “angry eyes” always cracks me up. I wake up with angry eyes every morning – those deep thinking lines right between the eyebrows. A few years ago I found the BEST cure for angry eyes – and it only costs about $20 for two month supply. That beats any chemical injection that you might think is the only option to remove those pesky lines!
Frownies. First, what an adorable name. Second, they have been around since the 1920s and should really be in every ladies makeup kit. I
They are super easy to use. While they recommend using a rose spray to moisten the triangles, I found that warm tap water works just as well. You do have to let any night cream soak in a bit to help them stick. Sometimes I will wet my hands after placing them on and really ensure they are wet enough to adhere. Once they dry, they are going to stay put the night.
Here are some before and after with the Frownies – give them a try!
I love clothes shopping. However, with three growing boys most the clothing funds go to them. I tend to buy jeans for them in the winter only to have them grow out of them by spring. So frustrating. I, on the other hand, am no longer growing. I have some very favorite brands – Ann Taylor, Old Navy, Cabi, just to name a few – but not the discretionary funds to buy items all the time. What’s a girl to do?
I found threadUP a while back and this had taken my shopping to a whole new level. Since I know the cuts and styles of jeans, dress slacks, tops and even shoes that I prefer I tends to search the site every so often when I need to freshen up my wardrobe. Best part is, I tend to have 3-5 items sent to me for under $50. How do you even fathom hitting the mall with that type of deal!
Be certain to check it out – shopping this link and you can save $10 off your order. Returns are easy, I have had to return some items and always get the credit. You can even send in some of your own clothes you don’t wear anymore and earn credit to shop for something new! Give it a try!
There is something for everyone on this fabulous list of my five favorite things – hope your spoil yourself a bit and try one (or many) for yourself!
