Evan’s Favorite Things: 2017

Most of you probably know by now, but I LOVE giving to others. It just makes my heart feel all warm and fuzzy. Who doesn’t love to see others smiles? With it officially being Christmas Eve! The wait is finally over– My 2017 Favorite Things are here. We took a year office, but I’m back with some of the BEST  products yet.

Oh, and just so we’re clear, these really are my most FAVORITE THINGS. It’s not just a random bunch of goodies I’ve selected and labeled “Favorite Things”. I couldn’t live without some of these products. Ok, maybe I could, but you know what I mean.

Up first is my ALL TIME FAVORITE Candle. This Archipelago “Positano” candle  retails for $19.50 and is sold locally at Candle Cabin in Montgomery or you can purchase online directly from their site.  If you know me, you know I am a candle snob. Just ask my roommates. The White Nectarine, Persimmon, Pomegranate key notes are just some of my favorite scents together. This is one of the only candles I burn at home and at my office. I have been know to buy an entire case at a time. I promise you want the disappointed.

Most of you are probably familiar with the movie “Wonder” starring Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson, but the book is even better. I cried and cried like a baby. My friend introduced me to this book about 2 years ago or so and I couldn’t put it down. If you don’t fall in love with Auggie something is wrong with you and you should probably see a doctor. Wonder tells the story about boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time. Every parent should read this with their kiddos. You will be encouraged by the message of hope that is in the book.  Yes, there is hope, always hope, and YOU can overcome what seems like insurmountable challenges. It’s ok to be different and remember to always “choose kind”.

My grandmother recently asked me “Why does your iPhone have a little knob on it?”,  I told her it was the best little knob there ever was. If you haven’t heard of a PopSocket, you’re probably living under a rock– Everyone has one. Originally they were indeed to be used with different iPhone Plus models, but more recently have almost become a fashion accessory.  They certainly make life easier when having a little mini iPad as a phone (iPhone 7 Plus)  They come in an array of colors, patterns and styles. They also have a car mount that the pop socket just slides down into for hands free driving. This little lifesaver retails for only $10.00.

Probably my ALL TIME FAVORITE THING OF FAVORITE THINGS. This product is so GOOD my hair stylist started carrying it in her salon. Mister Pompadour is one of the most under rated mens hair product lines out on the market. I don’t leave home with using these products. From the Peppermint Shampoo and Conditioner to the texture powder and beeswax sculpting putty,  if you are in need of a gift for the fella in your life look no further, this is it. Guys, you have to try this product. The set retails for $70.00.

Raise your hand if you turn your pillow over 100 times through the middle of the night so you can lay our head on the cold side?!? I know I do, and if you do too then this is the pillow for you. The Malouf  Carbon Cool pillow retails for $239.00 and is worth every penny. It’s made of graphite-infused memory foam which helps“creates a pathway that naturally moves heat away from the body” causing the pillow to remain cool at all times. I take it with me everywhere. I don’t travel without it.
