A New Day

Taking a look at all of the things I've been missing

Weekly Favorites – part 15

on January 10, 2015

Long time, no weekly favorites… sorry about that.

Between the surgery and the holidays, my days were spent napping and trying to catch up with some family. I’m still spending a little bit of time napping, but really trying to focus on trying to kick my bad TV habits and internet shopping. Short trips out have been nice, but exhausting… yesterday’s adventure included driving for the first time. Oh, I have missed driving! Hopefully I will be able to return to life as normal (at least sort of) next week.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been wearing little to no makeup… so odd for me. But once I did start to get back into the swing of it, I decided that some things in my ridiculous collection need to go… hence the recent Project Pan post. Life has been pretty simple… sleep in, shower, drink a bunch of coffee, watch Hoarders marathon, nap, wash face and go to bed. Riveting. So without the complication of a full head to toe routine, the focus of my favorites have really been on a couple of wonderful body products.

Here are my 2 most recent favorites – not recommended to be used together. 😉


LUSH Shower Gel in So White – I feel badly bringing this up for 2 reasons, 1- a limited edition holiday scent and 2 – sold out on the LUSH website. This might be available in select stores or select gift sets. I don’t typically enjoy apple scented products, but there is something so light and clean about this one. There are additional rose, citrus and bergamot notes that are so pleasant. One of the things I love most about LUSH shower gels is that they are more hydrating than other gel washes… Aside from scent, there typically isn’t a lot of physical difference between the $2 and the $40 shower gel… admit it. This one sets the bar a little bit higher for its ability to moisturize. Check out some of the other LUSH options that range $9.95-$28.95.

The Body Shop Body Butter in Cranberry Joy – excuse the old packaging… While this particular tub is a year or two old, I promise I just opened it a couple weeks ago! While this is a seasonal scent, I don’t feel badly about posting this one because not only is it still available, it’s only $5 for the full-size 6.76oz. tub! I go through a couple Cranberry Joy products every season (see here, here and here) and look forward to the product releases every holiday season. The most exciting change to the line is that the Body Polish now comes in a tube.. its about time! I love cranberry scents and I believe this is one of the best representations of the real thing out there.

Hopefully I am back on blogging track and will get back to my regularly scheduled weekly posts. I hope you enjoyed the year in review and other highlights. This coming year will focus on more weekly favorites, which you all seem to enjoy, as well as a focused effort on using up some specific items in what I hope will be a series of Project Pan posts.

Have a great week!
