Seven Sensational Finds

We all have them:  those delicious OR amazing OR cool new things that we have found  and believe that our discovery needs to be shouted from the rooftop.  Well, here are a few of mine and why I THINK they are SO SENSATIONAL and SHOUT WORTHY!Chocolove Chocolate

1. Chocolove: found it at Kroger’s in the Organic section.  It was on sale so I thot, ‘heck, I’ll give it a try.”  WOW!! It is amazing!  There are more than 21 kinds, but these two are my favorites.  I tend to eat two squares every other day (I have fooled myself into thinking that if I ration it, I don’t have a ‘problem’.) Greek Yogurt  Works for me!

2.Greek Yogurt: I know, others are already shouting about this. I really don’t care about the brand (whatever is on sale) but the Greek yogurt really is better than regular, old, plain ho-hum yogurt.  Also makes GREAT Greek Yogurt Blueberry Pancakes!

3. John Freida’s 3 Day Straight: I straighten my hair after I shampoo and dry it.  It takes a while.  I hate washing it…so time consumming…I mean, I have chocolate to eat!  BUT, I discovered this stuff by John Freida called  FRIZZ-EASE 3 Day Straight.  All I do is pump 12-15 sprays into my freshly washed hair, comb it in, 3 Day Straightblow it dry, straighten it and WA-LA: it is straight for 3 days (I can only assume that that is why they named it 3 Day Straight) But, really, I get out of bed on day 2 and 3,  brush it and I’m good to go!

4. CLIF Peanut Butter Granola Bars: quick breakfast bar and/or energy snack.  It is also VERY TASTY.  I hate trying to choose a new bar from the myriads of choices out there.  (After all, what if I don’t like it!!)  I like it cause it taste good AND it sustains!Clif Crunch Granola Bars

5. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Skin Therapy Oil:  I hate dry skin.  And the wrinkles AIN”T going away.  But this stuff is affordable ($6ish) and it provides great relief for the middle-of-the-night-my-face-is sticking-to-my-bones feeling.  It is also perfect for freshening up during the day.  One squirt will do ya.  LOVE IT!Palmer's Skin Therapy Oil

6. Agave: I like it in my coffee.  No aftertaste.  I just flat-out eat too much sugar and when I use this I believe in my heart that I am being good. (No comment from the peanut gallery, Lena!)Agave (this brand is from Costco)

7. Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream: I burn VERY easily in the summer. (And I know it is not summertime, but my mind wanders sometimes.) After I burn, I peel.  This cycle has continued for years and years (and years).  BUT THIS STUFF is the ONLY STUFF (including Aloe) that prevents me from peeling. Cetaphil in the tub And yes, I now use sunscreen and yes, I even make feeble attempts to stay out of the sun.  However, I love it….it woos me, though, sadly, it is not kind to me.

There you have today’s SEVEN SENSATIONAL FINDS.

JOJO, I hope this appeases your request for a me to “post a quick blog.”
