Friday's Five Fabulous Finds

These are the things that have really "tickled my fancy" here lately. And you will be impressed that said items are all under 35 dolla ... make you holla! Let's begin-

Fabulous Find #1: Tide High Performance Roller

This is not your typical lint roller. If any of you have pets (or a husband that is "shedding" hair) you NEED this! I roll my couch at least once a week and my clothes multiple times per week and this bad boy gets the job done as well as leaves a nice hint of vanilla and lavender behind. It is scented ... making everything feel so fresh and so clean, clean. You are probably going to pay a couple dollars more for this scented, powerhouse but very well worth it.

Fabulous Find #2: Bumble and Bumble Hair Powder

Not a great picture but a GREAT product. Now this is basically like a dry shampoo and it comes in all different shades for different hair colors. This will cost you about $35 for 4 ounces (yikes) but it is the absolute best hair product I have ever purchased and let me tell you, I have hair ISSUES. I have the oiliest scalp known to man. I should wash my hair appx. every 8 hours, but 3 showers per day just doesn't fit in the schedule. BUT I have very, very, horrendously dry hair (you know, the actual hair part). So super oily scalp and super dry hair, you with me? Makes for a bad combination. Well the hair powder is like magic for my mane. I cannot use in replace of my daily shampoo, however, I can use it to prevent oil throughout the day and I always use it after work if I have somewhere to be and do not have time for a hair wash. But the beauty of this product is that it also gives me lots of volume and (insert a choir singing "Glory, Glory Hallelujah") disguises those nasty dark roots when in desperate need of a highlight. I HEART this product. Seriously.

Fabulous Find #3: Peanut Butter Whoppers

I have no idea what is wrong with me but I crave these things in my sleep. I came across them about a month ago and have consumed more than I care to mention. I am not even a huge fan of regular Whoppers but these things make me salivate ... I am salivating right now as I type. If you like Reese's peanut butter candy you will l-o-v-e these. Most addicting candy I have ever put in my mouth!

Fabulous Find #4: OPI Nail Polish in Bubble Bath

I love painted finger nails and this has been my go-to polish all spring and summer long. It gives the perfect amount of classic color. A friend from my office and I have passed it back and forth for months now and I don't seem to ever get tired of it. I carry it with me in purse at all times and I always get compliments on my nails. Nobody can belive that they are my real nails and I know it's beause of the polish. It gives a real 'fresh from the salon, American manicured' look.

Last but not least, Fabulous Find #5: Gilligan & O'Malley Micro Chemise from Target

I have heard a lot of talk about the Gilligan & O'Malley lounge pants out in bloggy world. Well on my most recent trip to Target I discovered these oh-so-soft nighties. I have had 2 lingerie gifts to buy and I was excited about these finds. I know they are on the conservative end for a lingerie gift but I was so thankful for all the cute, sweet night gowns that I could actually wear on a nightly basis. I would rather sleep in a little nightie than anything else. And did I mention how soft they are? Check them out at ... $15 makes them even better!
