I love getting product recommendations from blogs, not only because I'm always on the lookout for good stuff, but also because I like the insight it gives on what people like and why. Today I thought I'd share some of my latest "can't live without" stuff:

1. My Vera Bradley backpack

I am a lover of all things purse, and this backpack is like a purse, but better. I love that I can use both hands while carrying it, and I love that I have room enough to carry a ton of stuff without hauling around a huge purse. I love that in my boy-filled life, I can carry something totally girly and get a ton of compliments. Totally worth it!

2. My Personal Labeler

I've been reading a book about getting organized and the author strongly suggests buying a personal labeler. It seemed kind of silly, but I decided to get one anyway. And I totally love it! I could label everything, but I manage to restrain myself to files and things that have a significant need for a label. I recommend this product to anyone-- it makes you feel more organized just using it!

3. Microfiber Cleaning Cloths

I may be way behind the times having just discovered these a few weeks ago, so you may already know about the amazing cleaning powers of microfiber. If not, get some of these as soon as possible! I bought mine at the Don Aslett Cleaning Center here in Logan, and I can't say enough good about them. You know that old addage, "twice the power in half the time"? Yeah.


This week I've been listening to Annie Lennox radio. Remember Shakespeare's Sister? I was listening at work when their "Stay with Me" hit (which I believe was their only hit) came on, and I laughed out loud. I like reminiscing via Internet Radio.

5. My new Rykas

Christy, Holly and I ran in a 5K race this morning (which I will post about later this evening after I download my photos), and although pretty much every other part of my body hurt, my feet felt great! Ryka, you've got a fan.

6. My Food Chopper from The Pampered Chef (see Emily if you want your own!)

Actually, everything I have purchased from The Pampered Chef is awesome, but I use this product even more than I thought I would. The chopper has actually encouraged an increased consumption of fresh veggies at our house. I love chopping, especially onions.

Great picks! I know nothing about microfiber either, so I'll have to check it out. Thanks for the idea!

You are a running fool! Good for you. A personal labeler? I will have to check that out.

Apparently I need to get me a pair of those shoes and a Vera backpack. I have been debating and debating. But I guess I'm going to break down and do it.

Christy said...

I love the backpack! ... and the shoes! So, when is this 10K that Chris told me about? I will for sure do it.

Justin and Amber Manwaring said...

Oh, I love my Vera backpack, too. Aren't they the best! I also just noticed you're reading the NO. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency. I just started that and it seems like it's going to be really cute.

glad you like your chopper! I love it too!
