Well, we've been busy...
So, I was just talking to Bev today about how I have found the most amazing bra ever. And then she reminded me that we have a blog to talk about these very pressing issues.
So, gentle readers, I give you my pick for best over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder... the Angels by Victoria's Secret wireless bra.
I first realized the glory of the Angel, when I got home from work and I wasn't itching to get out of my bra. I was comfortable - more than comfortable, actually. And when I looked down, I saw a landscape with beautiful rolling hills of boobage.
Perhaps the most amazing thing about this bra is that it took me all day to truly appreciate it's wonders. I forgot I was even wearing a bra.
For those of you who are hesitant to go wireless, I urge you to give this bra a try. You can enjoy support, shape and lift without the fear of being stabbed in the sternum by an errant piece of underwire. Even jumping around the house during my test drive couldn't coax the twins from escaping the gentle hug of an Angel.
Ok. I just totally creeped myself out.

Anyhoo... I would like to take a moment to sing the praises of Fabreze Air Effects!
We have a new dog who occasionally leaves stinky presents around the house for us. He stunk up our TV room so bad that we had to leave the window open overnight in 10 degree weather. We swept, vacuumed, scrubbed and mopped and the next day, I still almost fell over when I opened the door.
I picked up the Fabreze Air Effects from Target with pretty low expectations. I knew I just needed "something" to distract my nose from that awful smell.
When I got home, I sprayed a bit in the TV room. I noticed right away that it was getting better. Then, I went about my business for a few hours. To my surprise and delight, when I went back up there, I still smelled Lavender Vanilla! No poop!
I am pleased to say that three days later, the odor has not come back to haunt me as I was so certain it would! I think this stuff is magical.

This is coming from someone who never, ever... EVER wears color on her nails that isn't some kind of barely-there-pink or nude color. Normally, they chip so fast that by day 2, I look like a slob - so I usually avoid it all together. NO MORE! Starting right now, I'm ignoring the chips... and going for it. I even bought my own bottle of 'over the top' online at Essie so I can fix it and make it last a little longer.

If you're ever in a bad mood, there's no way this won't help cheer you up even the littlest bit.
$$$ - I had some (much deserved) gift certificates to use at Barneys from little awards that I get at work every now and then. I had been saving them up for something totally pampering, which in my world = shoes. I dragged my cousin along to make sure that I stayed on target, and didn't do anything to crazy. I left with my newest favoritest boots of all times. I found a picture of them online in black, but the pair that I bought was in brown.
They're made by a relatively new design team called Golden Goose. I did a little googling about them, and found this tidbit: "Golden Goose was launched in 2000 by two not so ambitious designers, Alessandro Gallo and Francesca Rinaldo who just wanted more cool stuff for themselves. " I think it's their not-so-ambitiousness, that is most appealing to me. Cheers to that!
So all was good in the hood, until I found out that the day I went to Barney's was a little special sale day, and you got a certain amount of money incrimentally, when you spent a certain amount of money! Score! (This is where the trouble starts) I now have YET ANOTHER gift certificate for Barneys, that I have to use on a return visit. Keep in mind, I'm not one who shops regularly at Barneys. I have a mortgage, and rent to pay - and I need to eat. If I shopped at Barney's on a regular basis, I'd be homeless (twice) and I'd really really skinny... (which ((now that I think about it)) would only make me want to shop at Barney's even more!) Anyway, I needed to unload this special treat, and fast. It's a good thing that I've been totally coveting a certain pair of shoes and have been dreaming about them for a while (Heather, I totally blame you for this one!)
I have two other pairs of Christian Louboutin shoes... and they're all equally the best shoes ever. They're lifetime shoes, and these are no exception.
The heels are only 2.5 inches tall, so they're TOTALLY comfortable - but still really elegant. They go with absolutely anything, and they're just so incredibly cute, I might need to have them framed.
And that my blog-reading friends, is first (and unfortunatly expensive) cure for thing-misery! Next up, the equally satisfying freebie!!!!!!!!!!!!

Like HATE hate. Although, it's been eerily warm this year, I still have the feeling of impending doom each morning when I wake up. I fear that I will need to scrape the frost off of my windshield. I throw my hands in the air and wonder, as I do every year, why I still live here, in the land of ice and snow.
Anyway, this blog is called ThingHappiness, not ThingMisery, so bear with me.
With cold weather, comes dry skin and chapped lips. This year, however, will be different because I have found the most wonderful lip balm/ treatment/ shine to have ever existed in the history of lips.
Now, I must admit that I'm a HUGE Philosophy junkie to begin with. But this product is mint.
My lips are smooth. They are not sticky. My hair does not get caught in a honey-like goo. My lips are shiny. AND they smell minty fresh.
There are also other flavors/ scents... but this one totally wins.

When it was just Calvin and I, Tidy Cat was just fine, but once I used the World's Best Cat Litter and added Kitty to the mix - it was a no brainer. It's made of CORN!! It's light and airy (kind of like grapenuts, but I've never tasted it) and still does a great job. There's NO dust, it clumps really well, it's totally flushable (although we still throw it away after scooping) -- And it's all natural, so when Calvin and Kitty clean themselves - they're not licking any icky manufactured chemicals.
The kitties love it! I had no problem switching over and when I ran out once, and had to go with the old Tidy Cat standby... Calvin was not pleased at all, and I switched back immediately.
