Favorite Things - December

Yes indeed it is that time when I get to share some of my favorite things found in December!!

Since I have been wearing more makeup I wanted to be sure that I get my face REALLY clean and I got tired of leaving my face towel all dirty after one use. Thanks to my daughter (the knower of all things makeup!) I have found Neutrogena to produce a great product. One towelette nightly and my face is free of the days makeup.
These little babies are ONION GOGGLES and I simply cannot say enough about them. I love using onions while cooking, but can't stand cutting/chopping them as they get me all teary (usually pass that chore off to my Fireguy..) Trust me they are the best thing since sliced bread ~

Next up is a great wine... Beaujolais Nouveau!! This wine is sold but once a year at one of our local specialty stores. Usually brought out the week before Thanksgiving ~ The wine was recommended to me by a dear friend, and of course she did not dissapoint. Probably too late for this year, but you should check it out next holiday season.

And of course one needs a way to open their special wine, right? I received this amazing addition for Christmas; an Automatic Wine Bottle Opener!! Once charged this doll will open 30 bottles before needing a recharge. Simply hold the unit over the wine bottle and press a button; WAH LAH, wine is open! Simply perfect cork removal ~

This post is like TV commercials that advertise cool gadgets. I'm thinking the onion goggles and wine bottle opener look pretty nice. My husband doesn't call me The Gadget Queen for nothing. I heard recently about toe nail clippers with a light and a a little compartment to collect clipped nails. Then I could clip my nails in the dark. Maybe you could post a picture of you wearing the onion goggles and maybe a video of you using the bottle opener.

Thanks for the facial towels review. I would like to have them for travel..and home. I always forget about the new/first wine until it is gone...buying it for Thanksgiving would be a good reminder.

I may have to get some onion goggles soon.

The wine opener looks neat! I got an aerator for Christmas you just pour the wine right through it into your bottle, and you can definitely taste the difference.

I have never heard of onion googles but what a great idea - the other day we haad an onion that was so strong I could smell it upstairs - googles would have nice when I was cutting the potent thing up...
Love to you,
Kelly
