My Favorite Things - Winter Survival



Okay, so I'm not Oprah and I can't give away my favorite things but I thought I would share what has helped me through the winter. Most of the items are free so enjoy!
* a short disclaimer - I was not asked to review these products and have not received anything in return.


InStyle Magazine has been my favorite for years! Due to SAHM budget cuts, I no longer have a subscription. I check out their website and treat myself to one every now and then! It has helped with the long trips traveling home for the holidays and snow days!


InStyle

This is one of my newest favorite things! J's Everyday Fashion. This is a blog by J who loves fashion and gives great examples of outfits you can create on a realistic budget! I promise, REALISTIC! Love her style and I check out her FB page daily to see her latest fashion creation! I am finally down to my pre-baby weight,  after five years and two kids, so I need all the inspiration I can get!


 
As a SAHM this is my weekday go to outfit. Long sleeved tee and jeans. I throw on my jacket and I'm out the door headed to preschool and to run any errands I may have that day.


Word World is a PBS show that my kids LOVE. I love it too because my 21 month old daughter can identify all her letters (and has been since about 19 months) thanks to this show. They watch an episode everyday while I get dinner ready. I definitely recommend checking your local PBS station to see if it's on their schedule. We have 40 episodes DVR'd! My husband and I are amazed at how the animators figure out how to make everything out of letters that spell out what the object is.



I use Olay Daily Exfoliating Body Wash all the time. It's not really abrasive and a bottle lasts for a long time! I also love the way it smells!
