Things I’m Loving

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

Today, we’re talking favorites!  I love sharing my favorite things with you and, even better, I love hearing about your favorites!  Make sure to share your top notch products with us below!  Okay, let’s get into it!

Bar Soap


Bar soap?  Yes, bar soap.  About 4-5 years ago I made the switch from body wash to bar soap.  The original intention was to use the bar soap to make my own body wash.  Turns out, that’s pretty time intensive, so that plan never came to be.  Such is life.  But I had the bar soap, so I decided to use it up.  Lo and behold, a discovery was made!  You know how you can get those little bumps on your arms?  I constantly had those bumps on the back of my triceps.  When I switched to using the bar soap, though, those bumps went away!  Sweet!  Bar soap all the way!  My favorite brand is Dial as they have so many scents and it rinses clean.  Some other great options are Zest and Dove.

Weekend Indulgence


Since moving back into town, the hubby and I accidentally started a fun Saturday morning ritual.  It all started when a co-worker brought in some bagels from a local bakery.  Turns out, said bakery is only a mile from our place and is oh so delicious!  It was necessary that I immediately shared this new found treasure with the hubby.  And voila!  A new weekend tradition was born.  Now, no Saturday morning is complete without a trip to our favorite bakery!  This is such a special weekend tradition and gives us something to look forward to during the week.  Do you have a weekend ritual?

Children’s Xyzal Allergy Medicine


The warm weather is certainly refreshing, but that comes with a price for us allergy sufferers.  My allergies have been in full swing, complete with a runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, and the like.  Bummer, but a small price to pay for the fabulous spring weather.  Allergy medicine is very tricky for me.  After years of use, Claritin and Allegra don’t work for me anymore.  Benedryl and Zyrtec Knock.Me.Out.  No joke.  I’m down for the count!  Xyzal will make me drowsy as well if I take a full dose.  After some experiments, I found that I only need half a dose.  Instead of breaking all the pills in half (which never works to split them exactly in half), I opt for the Children’s Xyzal Liquid Allergy Relief.  It makes taking half a dose so easy.  If you have allergies that aren’t terribly severe or you’re sensitive to medication like me, I would highly recommend trying this out.  Have allergies?  What are your remedies?



With the abundance of warmer weather, the puppy and I have taken to the hiking trails.  I was in need of some new activewear.  Turns out, activewear is expensive!  Even looking on thredUP was not fruitful.  Seriously, I just need something to sweat into, it doesn’t need to be fancy.  Slightly begrudgingly, I turned to Wal-Mart.  I was pleasantly surprised by my finds.  First off was this sports bra from Fruit of the Loom.  It’s oh so comfy and keeps everything in place even with the most intense workouts.  I also found this fabulous Danskin Now tank top.  This tank is so flowy, flattering, and will keep you cool.  What’s not to love about that?

e.l.f. Liquid Matte Lipstick


Seriously, I cannot stop wearing this lipstick!  I threw this in my shopping cart on a whim and I’m so glad I did!  The formula is matte without feeling uncomfortable or looking overly dry.  Plus, it has great staying power!  I have the color Mauvelous (see what they did there).  The pun fits perfectly because this color is absolutely marvelous!  It’s the perfect neutral lip color that’s just right for work or for any daytime look.  You need this in your life!

  1. Yey to switching to bar soap, it’s so much better for your skin. Have you tried the handmade version? I promise you it’s better than the commercial brands 😉
