Top Five I Can't Live Without

I was tagged by Jess of Polka Dots, Pearls, and Pink...OH MY! to list my top 5 things I cannot live without. I have wayyy more than 5 but here is what came to mind (besides my Blackberry):



I'm with Jess on this one! You can never go wrong with pearls. I got my ears pierced when I was 6 and I have rarely left the house without earrings. The only exception was for soccer and lacrosse growing up since they were "banned" - usually I would wear them anyway until I was told to take them out. I just don't feel right without them! 


 I swear by the T3, and always pack the other mini when I'm on the road. It's really powerful for a tiny little thing! Neither weigh your arm down either.


Making the most of my reality TV time! If I didn't have one I don't know when I would squeeze in my workouts.I really want to join a gym for classes, but I'm always on-the-go and I can't fully utilize a membership right now. I end up working out pretty late, but I figure it's better than nothing at all.

When I'm feeling like the picture above and having a hard time motivating myself, I at least do this 30-minute "calorie-blasting walk" I pulled from Shape a few years ago. It gets your heart pumping with the incline.


Southern Living Derby Cheese Hat

I'm addicted. Ted and I both gave up cheese for a month as a bet. Wouldn't you know the first day of the challenge there was delivery from Eileen's Special Cheesecake to the office for one of my co-workers. (The New York bakery has been featured on Throwdown with Bobby Flay on the Food Network.) An argument ensued over text messaging whether cheesecake counted or not. It was a loooong month!


Fresh Sugar Lip Gloss in Cherry $18

I carry an arsenal in my bag. But need to have at least one with me at all times. Featured is my gloss of the moment.

Tag, you're it!

What are your top five?



  1. Thanks for the Calorie Blaster! I am going to try that tonight at the gym. =)

  2. I love everything that Fresh makes!!! Their tinted lip balm is amazing!

  3. I so wish I had a treadmill at home! The hubby thinks it'd just be in the way though.

    And I would totally die without cheese. ;)

  4. I'm with you on the pearls. I feel naked without them and have on occasion made myself late for work trying to find a mia pair! I even wear them to the beach. Ooh and cheese, I know I couldn't go a month without brie.

  5. Finally, another lover of cheese. I really don't think I could give it up for a month, so I'm impressed :)

  6. Right with you on the pearl earrings and the treadmill. Lip gloss definitely is my go to if nothing else...and CHEESE! Every weekend our appetizer is Brie baked with almonds and Craisins on top! Great pick! I wish I could eat it every day! Lovely post :)

  7. I can't live without cheese either! And concealer...oh and mascara. Man, I have a lot of needs!

  8. How did you pick just 5?! And you even included a treadmill on there...good for you. Cheesecake definitely does NOT count as cheese in my book...if so, we'd have problems.

  9. Totally agree with the lip balm/chapstick -- My fave is Sara Happ The Lip Slip (it's to die for). I also am a huge fan of earrings & never leave the house without them (even to the gym!). I think mascara, Pellegrino & multi-grain Goldfish would also be on my list!!

  10. Pearls are my staple earrings :)
