Last week was one of my favorite days — when Oprah announces out her Favorite Things list for the holidays.
You may be wondering why EXACTLY that is one of my favorite days? Well honestly, I really just love giving gifts for people and I used to really enjoy the way she gave out all the gifts to everyone who attended the show and their excitement over it.
I’m also a bit biz obsessed and I love that businesses (like Spanx by Sara Blakely) have absolutely SKY-ROCKETED as a direct result of getting exposure to her audience. Nothing excites me more then seeing small companies become huge ones!!
A couple of years ago I thought it would be fun on my birthday to put out my own personal list of Favorite Things — these are things that I use in both my business + life — since I love gift giving so much and absolutely adore sharing my favorite things you can bet if you’re a friend or family member there’s a good chance one of these will end up in your stocking during the holidays.
Here are some of my TOP favorite items (in no particular order) from 2017
Lauren, the creator of Balanced Roots creates high quality bath bombs and oil roll-ons that will help you hit the ultimate level of relaxation. Their quality is amazing AND you get an added bonus with the bath bombs because they have a special crystal in the middle. My new apartment is missing a bathtub but you can bet I’ll be stocking up on these to use the next time I head out of town
Love coffee like I do? Need to start every morning with a cup (or a pot like me hahaha)? Then you’re going to want to treat yourself to a Mistobox subscription. I originally discovered this company on Shark Tank a few years ago when Mark Cuban invested in them and last year at the holidays I sent gifts from here to my closest business support team members and my clients. I ended up treating myself as well a few months later + it was so exciting to see a new blend arrive at my door every month. CLICK HERE to get $10 off your first order.
8. Shark Tank
Okay I’m pretty sure that this made the list a couple of years ago but it’s still one of my most FAVORITE TV shows and should be an ABSOLUTE requirement for every entrepreneur to watch. You will learn so much about running a successful business and you’ll learn exactly how the Sharks choose to invest their money. Watch it now and let me know what you think! I often do reviews of the episodes in my private Facebook group for women entrepreneurs so feel free to join us for some post-show business breakdown.
This is a “custom superbottle” for your skin that is also a freaking lifesaver. It helps with breakouts, wrinkles, dark spots, and more and you don’t even need to go to a dermatologist to get it. A few months ago I was suffering from AWFUL breakouts — it was so frustrating and nothing I tried helped. It was affecting me and my business because I was starting to hate creating videos + going live, even though that’s one of the best ways I can connect with my audience.Thank goodness one of my amazing entrepreneur friends recommended Curology — you actually get online access to a dermatologist who creates a custom mix for you. And then they deliver it straight to your door every month. No wasting time in a waiting room. No overpriced prescriptions. No medicine cabinet full of sticky tubes. Just 1 bottle sent straight to your door with a custom solution for you. This is something you’re definitely going to want to check out + by using this link you can get 1 month free!
If you’re anything like me you work your butt off for your clients and your business and you often spend a LOT of hours at home! You deserve a luxury candle and the line of Voluspa candles are my luxury candles of choice. Their scent is not overwhelming but is strong and there are a variety of candles to choose from. Just seeing it on my desk puts a smile on my face. Don’t grab just one — grab a few because you’re going to want to share with your best friends (and you’re also going to want to try more than 1 scent!).
I’m probably SUPER late to the game but I’ve developed a serious taste for ranch dressing over the past year — I literally want to put it on everything I eat. For a limited time you can stock up on it by ordering one of these kegs. YES a keg of ranch dressing! Grab yourself 1 (or more!) of these here.
Can i be honest with you??? There are some days that I work from my couch. Not a lot anymore but every now and then it’s nice to just curl up in the corner of the couch with my fuzzy blanket + my Macbaby! Honestly, some days it feels like I can take over the from that spot 🙂 If you want a fuzzy blanket of your own, check out this one.
One of my friends suggested I share my favorite lip gloss, but you know what?? I actually can’t stand lip gloss or how sticky it makes my lips feel!!! What I do love is the Nivea lip balm — it smells great and is the perfect lip smoother. I buy at least 5 of these at a time and share them with everyone I know. PLUS the price is amazing so you can afford to have one in every room + purse you own.
Speaking of purses, this is pretty much the only one I use (i’m actually on my second one because the first one I owned got worn out after a few years!!). The Coach Crossbody bag is awesome because it can store all of my entrepreneur essentials when I’m out and about — like my journal, my kindle, my wallet, my lip balm, and anything else I can need (the only thing it doesn’t fit is my Macbaby!!).
1. Apothic wine
If you’re a member of my facebook group, the Entrepreneur Obsessed Commmunity, then you knew this was coming and that it had to be #1 on the list. In fact, I did a whole business breakdown about WHAT makes Apothic Wine such a great business (and it’s more than just the wine!). Apothic Wine is actually a bonding experience for you and your friends (most of whom may already be fans) as there are plenty of blends to choose from + try out. Apothic Crush is my flavor of choice but I’ld love t know which is yours!
Thanks so much for checking this list out + letting me share my favorite things for you — I hope it gives you some fun ideas for how you can reward yourself the next time you hit one of your business goals!!
