Five Favorite Things

Favorite Things

I have soooo many favorite things!!

It was hard to narrow it down to just 5 today but I will post more next week.

So my list for this week is~~~
No certain order~~~

1)  I am trying to get my home/life organized right now and my favorite organizing youtube channel right now is Organized Like Jen. Jennifer has a ton of videos on this youtube channel that are about organizing everything from desk drawers to cars!!! She has a few other channels that are fun to watch if you like hearing about new beauty products The Busy Bee Buzz and if you are a dog lover like me!! Here is another of her youtube channels about her fur baby Winnie Winnie The Tzu. Jen is so sweet and is really good at organizing! She has been a great source of info for me!!

2) Amazon Big favorite place to do lots of shopping!!! And oh how I am loving Amazon Prime! I order lots of my books from Amazon and will probably do lots of Christmas shopping there too! LOVE IT!! 

3) My favorite hand lotion right now (and it's been my favorite for a long time) L'Occitane specifically the Shea Butter Scent I think I may be a little addicted to it!

4) I also think I may be a little addicted to Pinterest!! I usually get on at night. If I got on during the day I wouldn't get anything done! You can find my boards here:  Pinterest (my boards) 

5) And for number 5 on my list ~~~ Etsy  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE me some Etsy. I love handmade items. People are so creative!! And I usually feel that I am getting a one of a kind item that no one else has! And for a little shameless plug...I have 2 Etsy stores. Not much in either of them but you can find me at Say Seaux (cards for all occasions) and at Seaux Southern (machine embroidery)

Well there you have it ~~ my list of 5. Lots more to come!!
I would love to hear what some of your favorite things are so please leave them in comments below!!

Happy Weekend!!

A Look at Books

I love to read ~~ wish I had more time to do it!
I have a really tall stack of books that I want to read~and an even longer list of books that I want to get!!
This is the book that I just finished

Lucia Sartori is the main character. The only daughter in an Italian family in New York city set in the 50's. 
I love the way she describes her life in New York and the designer clothes she helps to create. The struggles she goes through with the love of her career and her loyalty to her family. And then there are the men in her life!
Very good book and highly recommended!
Here are a few of the other books I have to read but can't decide what to read next. So many choices!

Do you have a favorite book that you have read lately or a favorite author?
Any recommendations would be nice!!
