Mom’s Christmas Picks

16 Dec

Hello friends.  It’s not too late to get some last minute Christmas ideas on your list.  Today, I’m going to share some of my Christmas picks.  These are things that I have come across that I find fascinating and wonderful.  If you have found something this year, please also share.  The shopping days are ticking down!  ❤

My first pick – knitted gloves.  They have these types of gloves in all kinds of different sizes and materials.  They have them longer, shorter, with fingers and without fingers.  They look fashionable yet let me tell you a little secret.  If you have someone you know that has arthritis – they need these types of gloves.  I’ve been having a lot of joint pain and my wrists are really bad.  These gloves give my wrists just a little bit of warmth and comfort.  I wear these with long or short sleeved shirts – in and around the house.  Say what you want to the fashionistas in the world – these gloves rock.  They are on the top of my list.

And a blessing – you can find these on Amazon at all kinds of different prices – from less than $2.00 to the ones on the higher end of $20.00 – check them out 🙂

Next up –  make up.  What girl doesn’t love a good quality make up?  And yes, I’m confident in myself to show you this fabulous company I have found.  I saw an infomercial a while back on IT Cosmetics.  I thought it looked interesting and finally broke down and got some make up from them.  It came in the mail so quickly and in such a cute little package.  I tried it and let me tell you something – I’m never.going.back!  This is the best make up that I have tried in my entire life.  This coming from a girl that use to only using Clinique products.  Now I will tell you that IT Cosmetics are not cheap but they are amazing!  I’m showing you my before and after pictures so you can see how beautiful the product works.

I am using Your Skin But Better CC+ Cream with SPF 50+ (medium).  This is your base and goes on like a cream.  It does not feel like a foundation at all and look at all of the imperfections in my face that it covers – totally awesome.  And a little bit goes a long ways.  I then followed this with Bye Bye Pores.  This is a powder that really does make your pores disappear and it is so silky.  Then I added my regular eye and lip make up.  Can you see the difference?  Like I said it is costly, these two products I ordered set me back around $60 BUT again a little goes a long way. AND they do not test their products on animals – isn’t that another great plus?!

My final pick – Pony Up Daddy.  This is hilarious and I absolutely fell in love with this.  At first, I really thought it was a joke.  But it’s no joke!  How many times have your children or grandchildren wanted to play horsey on your back while you went around the house on all fours?  Here you go – a ‘saddle’ that velcros around the horses waist.  The child then climbs aboard for the ride of their life.  Where has this been all of our lives?  I can just see my hub unit using one of these with the kids in our lives – what a blast!  Price range – around $25.00 – I’ve seen them on Amazon and at Wal-Mart.

So friends – what have you found for this Christmas season?  Please share!

    Way to hot here for the gloves and I just can’t come at makeup but I’ve sure gotta have one of those pony up Daddy things. Why didn’t someone think of that when my kids were little. Charlie’s Mum, Lynn.

    Girrrrl, we love knitted gloves. We have a ton of those gloves. Because we knit them ourselves! Even more satisfying when I’m knitting a pair of fingerless gloves while wearing a pair of fingerless gloves!

      OMP! My mom would love you! Mom fell in love with them – are you ready for this? – when she saw the movie Twilight and saw Bella’s gloves. She LOVED them. She’s never been able to find a pair like those but wears these all of the time. Beautiful! XOXO – Bacon

        Hmmmm never seen twilight. And now mommy is off in search of a photo of those. We have patterns of all the cool knitted things worn in Hunger Games and Harry Potter, I’m sure there must be patterns from Twilight
