Random Review Thursday:

So today I thought it would be a fun change of pace to review a few of my new favorite things. All of these make me smile and best yet, all of these are budget friendly!

The first item on today's review is this little beauty: It's a Tea Duckie tea infuser. How stinkin cute is this?!?! I'm not a huge coffee drinker; I prefer good teas. I especially love loose-leaf teas as they typically have more flavor to  them. My old diffuser broke recently, so I had added a new diffuser to my mental shopping list. When I was at Cracker Barrel with my mom for dinner on Saturday night, we did a bit of browsing after our meal, that's when I found this little gem of an infuser! I LOVE it. Not only is it adorable floating in my cup of tea, it does a very good job of infusing the loose leaf tea and bringing out a rich flavor! It is also quite easy to clean which is another perk!

2. Italian Pet Spa Italian Honey and Lavender Daily Spritz (by Prince Lorenzo Borghese). The above picture is of their shampoo (equally amazing), but the fragrance bottle looks similar.I LOVE my dogs; I do not however love it when they have that musky dog (Disghusting) smell on them after they go for a walk or trip to the dog park. So, this is a wonderful compromise; it is tearless, moisturizing, pet safe, and leaves their coats shiny and soft!  Everytime I take their leashes off, I spritz a bit of this on their coats and they smell absolutely delicious! Best yet? My apartment doesn't smell like dogs. I have a few other favorite fragrances, but this is my new fav! (Best yet, the last time I went to Petco, they had both the shampoo and the spray discounted!)

3. Estee Lauder Sensuous Noir- I've been absolutely dying to get ahold of this perfum ever since late November when I caught a wiff of it in Cosmopolitan. It is aaaaaahhhhmazing! The only issue is that during December with Christmas time and what not, every single place I tried was sold out! Macy's Estee Lauder botiques, Sephoria, even amazon and other online sites....sold out! Ugg! Well, fret not...I found it!! On a recent trip with my best friend to Ulta, low and behold they had it! I was pretty much estatic!! It smells amazing and is definietly a great new signature fragrance!

4.O.P.I. Drip Dry - this may be the most amazing way to dry nail polish yet! Try it; this amazing little gem works like a charm and it's super fast too!!! You just add 1-2 drops of this over your topcoat of polish and it makes the nail polish dry quickly without chipping. Love it!

5. Woodwick: Applewood- It's no secret to my friends/family that I absolutely adore anything apple scented! This candle happens to be one of my favorite! It smells Ahhhhhhh-mazing! I don't have a fireplace, so I absolutely adore the crackling noise that the wooden wick produces when you light the Applewood candle. YUMMY! (In other news, Woodwick candles recently came out with some new scents! Ya!!! My new favorite is their 'Bakery Cupcake'...ohh my goodness!!)
