Things I Love… & You Will Too!

Like many women, I have spent a lot of money on health & beauty aids, kitchen gadgets, and every day “helpers”. This is a list of tried and true products, services and web sites you will want to consider,

Web Sites

GWP Addict at

This site is a source for beauty gifts with purchase. I e

specially like the “Big 3 Bonuses”, which includes Estee Lauder, Lancome and Clinique. If you’re in need of a beauty item, always check out this site to see what you  might be able to snag for free! Many of the web sites often offer free shipping on beauty products. Very rarely do I purchase a beauty item without a “gift with purchase” and free shipping.

Betty Crocker at crocker

Not sure what to have for dinner? Log on to Betty Crocker and click on the “Recipes” tab and enter the ingredients you have on hand. Whola! Instant dinner. This is also a good site for looking up classic recipes and helpful instructions (how to boil an egg so it doesn’t turn out with a green yolk).


Clarisonic face brushes at

I have owned the original Clarisonic face brush since Oprah had it on her “Favorite Things” list in 2007. I have not replaced the battery in 10 years and it still functions perfectly! Since 2007 the company has expanded its line to include multiple products at various price points. Once your use your Clarisonic, you will never go a day without it! By the way, I do not use the Clarisonic products, I use Estee Lauder cleansing products. You can use your favorite cleansing products with these devices.

Estee Lauder Perfectly Clean at

I have used the line of “Perfectly Clean” items for years. You can choose products based on your skin type. A regime of Perfectly Clean makeup remover, cleanser, and toner (along with the Clarisonic), will get your face “perfectly clean” and your complexion will be glowing. Estee Lauder discontinued this line of products about two or three years ago and there was an uproar from its consumers. As one consumer wrote on their web site “There are two things you don’t mess with, my kids and my skin care”. Fortunately, Estee Lauder listened to its consumer and I returned after attempting to use several other skin care products which did not compare to the quality and value of this line.

A bottle of the Take it Away makeup revoer and a tube of the cleanser will last you several months, just a bit needed. The toner will last months.

Method All-Purpose Surface Cleaner in pink grapefruit and antibacterial toilet cleaner

This eco-friendly cleaner cuts grease and grime like no other. It is a non-toxic plant-based product that works well and smells great. You can purchase the item at Target and other stores of the like.

The toilet cleaner in “spearmint” doesn’t smell so great, but its cleaning power is second to none.

Next Week…

Watch for next week’s blog when we cover my favorite digital television service and apps, all at a fraction of the price of cable TV, pricey wireless big brand television subscriptions and the kitchen gadgets worth their investment in gold!
