SUE'S PRODUCT PICKS FOR 2016.....because nobody buys more crap then the Adivaris.

I LOVE TO SHOP....
THERE I SAID IT....NOT YOUR NORMAL SHOPPING THAT MOST WOMEN DO....
CLOTHES....JEWELRY.....WHATEVER YOU LADIES BUY....
NO....I LOVE DO-DADS AND KITCHEN STUFF....
NEW PRODUCTS
AND YES.........CARS.....

I HAVE TALKED ABOUT THIS PRODUCT FOR YEARS NOW...
BUT IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO REMIND YOU HOW TO KEEP
WRINKLES AT BAY....
THIS IS THE PRODUCT YOU NEED TO BUY....
I HAVE BEEN USING THIS EVERY DAY FOR 20 YEARS....
KIEHL'S CHANGED IT UP SLIGHTLY RECENTLY BUT IT'S JUST
AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL
THEIR ULTRA FACIAL CREAM...
IT'S NON GREASY AND THIS SIZE CONTAINER LASTS ME A WHOLE YEAR....
IT COSTS ABOUT $28.00 AND THEY DO SELL A SMALLER SIZE
IF YOU WANTED TO TRY IT BEFORE BUYING THE LARGE SIZE...
I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS STUFF...
KIEHL'S WILL PUT YOU ON AN AUTO REPLENISHMENT
PROGRAM....AT THE TIME FRAME YOU CHOOSE....
AND THE SHIPPING IS FREE....
I ORDER ONCE A YEAR... 
I WAS LOOKING IN WALMART FOR THE NEW DOVE
HAIR PLUMPER-UPPER...
THAT'S NOT EXACTLY IT'S NAME BUT YOU GET THE IDEA....
IF YOUR HAIR IS THIN YOU SPRAY IT ON WHEN WET....RUB IT AROUND
AND WHEN YOU DRY YOUR HAIR IT'S SUPPOSE TO GIVE IT GREAT BODY....


I BUY A SIMILAR PRODUCT AT THE HAIR SALON BUT IT'S PRICEY...
I HAVE NOT FOUND THE DOVE ONE YET BUT I'M SURE IT'S A LOT CHEAPER....
WHILE LOOKING FOR IT I DISCOVERED THEY NOW SELL HAIR SPRAY....
OMG....FINALLY A HAIRSPRAY THAT SMELLS PLEASANT...

IT'S BY DOVE
CALLED "STYLE + CARE" IN EXTRA HOLD
IN FACT IT SMELLS OUT RIGHT GOOD....
IT HAS VERY GOOD HOLD TOO....
AND IT'S CHEAP...
I BELIEVE IT WAS UNDER $4.00 AT WALMART....
IF YOUR NOT LUCKY ENOUGH TO HAVE A "BLISS SPA"
IN YOUR STATE YOU CAN GO ONLINE TO
WWW.BLISS.COM
WHERE THEY SELL THIS DIVINE SOAP....
ANYTHING LEMON IS GREAT RIGHT...
I'M SURE THE SOAP THEY SELL IS WAY BIGGER IN SIZE THEN
THIS LITTLE BAR....
A FEW OF THESE HAPPEN TO JUMP IN TO MY LUGGAGE ON MY
RECENT TRIP TO CALIFORNIA...
HEY....I HEARD THEM TALKING SAYING THEY WONDERED WHAT THINGS WERE
LIKE ON THE EAST COAST....
BLISS SPA'S HAVE GREAT SERVICES IF YOU DO LIVE CLOSE TO ONE...
I LOVE TO GO AND GET THE
"COLD FEET" PEDICURE....
IT'S PRICEY AT $65 BUT IT'S AN HOUR IN HEAVEN....
WELL AT LEAST FOR YOUR FEET....
THEY ALSO DO MASSAGES AND FACIALS...
YOU KNOW I SPEND ALMOST MY ENTIRE LIFE IN THE  KITCHEN.....
NOT A BIG FAN OF GRANITE COUNTER TOPS I HAVE HAD A HECK OF
A TIME OVER THE PAST FOUR YEARS KEEPING MY ISLAND SPIC AND SPAN...
MY PATTERN IS VERY DIFFICULT TO SEE ANY SCHMUTZ ON IT....
THE BOSS FOUND THESE AT OUR LOCAL "PUBLIX" AND THEY ARE
FABULOUS....AROUND $4.00
YOUR GRANITE WILL DRY WITH NO STREAKS...
TALKING ABOUT STREAKS...... DOESN'T EVERYONE HATE TO CLEAN
WINDOWS....I KNOW I DO AND I AM VERY BAD AT IT...
THE FIRST YEAR WE LIVED IN THE HOUSE I ACTUALLY GAVE UP
AND CALLED A WINDOW CLEANING SERVICE...
AT $800 FOR 48 WINDOWS INSIDE AND OUT...
I HAD A FIT THE FIRST TIME WE HAD A RAIN STORM AND
OUR INFAMOUS GEORGIA POLLEN
 THE WINDOWS TURNED TO CRAP.....
THAT WAS OFFICIALLY THE FIRST AND LAST TIME I WILL HAVE MY
WINDOWS PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED....
IT'S A RACKET....


JUST BUY THIS STUFF....
"ARMOR ALL"
AUTO GLASS CLEANER....
ANOTHER THING THE BOSS FOUND FOR HIS FLEET OF CARS...
IT CLEANED THE CAR WINDOWS SO GOOD THAT WE GAVE IT
A SHOT ON THE HOUSE...
IT'S GREAT....
NO STREAKING....NICE AND SHINY CLEAN....
AND THIS IS WHAT WE USE WITH IT...
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN THESE BLUE "SHOP" TOWELS....
WE BOUGHT A PACKAGE OF 12 AT COSTCO FOR CHEAP......
THINK "VIVA" PAPER TOWEL ONLY BETTER...
YOU DON'T HAVE LINT COME OFF ON THE WINDOWS LIKE WITH
REGULAR PAPER TOWEL...
YOU CAN ALSO FIND THESE AT AUTO PARTS STORES AND
OF COURSE
WALMART.....
CAN YOU TELL I LOVE THE WALMART....

FOR YEARS THE FAM CRINGED EVERY TIME I MENTIONED I WAS 
GOING UNTIL ONE DAY THEY REALIZED THAT YOUR
BUYING THE EXACT SAME PRODUCTS YOU WOULD FIND
ELSEWHERE ONLY CHEAPER....
MONEY IS MONEY....
HOW DO YOU THINK WE CAN BUY ALL THOSE CARS...
THEY ALSO NEVER LIKED COUPONS UNTIL I POINTED OUT THAT
IT'S COLORFUL CASH....

HERE'S ONE FOR BOTH THE MEN AND US WOMEN......
THIS COULD BE A SOUTHERN THING...I AM NOT SURE... BUT YOU CAN ORDER THEM
AT WWW.CABELAS.COM

REI ALSO CARRIES THEM......

THE YETI....

EVERY SOUTHERNER WALKS AROUND WITH ONE OF THESE....
OR THEY HAVE A GIANT YETI COOLER IN THEIR PICK UPS...
OF COURSE WE HAVE TO HAVE ONE OF EACH STYLE...
(ACTUALLY WE HAVE TWO)....


NOT CHEAP BY ANY MEANS AT $29.99 FOR THE GLASS IN THE CENTER

WITH A LID
AND $25.00 FOR THE CAN COOLER AND THE SHORT GLASS (NO LID)...
THEY WILL KEEP YOUR DRINK ICE COLD FOR ALMOST TWO DAYS....
YOU ASK....WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO KEEP A DRINK COLD FOR TWO DAYS...
WHAT IT ACTUALLY DOES IS KEEP COLD AND ICY EVEN IN A
BOILING HOT CAR IN THE SUMMER WHEN THE TEMP IS IN THE 90'S
THINK THE BEACH!!
THE CAN COOLER DOES THE SAME WITH YOUR CAN OF SODA...
AND ALSO COMES WITH A COOL FEATURE....
THIS IS HOW IT COMES...
IT APPEARS THERE IS ALREADY A CAN OF SODA IN IT....
IT COMES APART GIVING YOU A PLACE TO HIDE KEYS AND MONEY
IF YOUR AT THE BEACH....
YOU CAN PUT THE CAN IN YOUR COOLER AND NO ONE WILL BE THE WISER...

PEOPLE SWEAR BY THEIR COOLERS....
THEY ARE VERY PRICEY STARTING AT $299.00
THEY ADVERTISE IT WILL KEEP ICE FROM MELTING FOR
THREE DAYS....
MANY "BOAT" PEOPLE HAVE THESE...
HERE IS SOMETHING INTERESTING....
YOU MAY HAVE SEEN THIS SITE ON FACEBOOK.....
"HUMANS OF NEW YORK"
IS DONE BY A PHOTOGRAPHER THAT GOES ALL OVER THE CITY
TAKING PICTURES OF PEOPLE AND ASKING THEM A QUESTION...
THIS BOOK IS A COMPILATION OF THE PEOPLE HE "INTERVIEWS"
EXTREMELY INTERESTING READ......
HE LOVES TO PHOTOGRAPH LITTLE CHILDREN IN THEIR WACKY
NYC GARB AND HE CALLS IT...
"TODAY IN MICRO FASHION"

THAT'S MY PERSONAL FAVORITE POSTS
CHECK IT OUT ON AMAZON OR AT BARNES AND NOBLE... 
MY NEWEST TOY.....
AN EARLY VALENTINES DAY GIFT FROM  THE BOSS....
IT'S THE COOLEST THING....
IT'S A VERY SMALL WIRELESS SPEAKER FOR YOUR I-POD
IT PUTS OUT A GOOD LOUD CLEAR SOUND....
HE BOUGHT IT FOR ME TO USE OUT AT THE POOL THIS SUMMER....
 YOU COULD TAKE IT TO THE BEACH OR ANYWHERE THERE'S NO OUTLET...
IT WILL PLAY FOR 8 HOURS ON ONE CHARGE...
IT COMES IN A BUNCH OF DIFFERENT COLORS
BEST BUYS SELLS IT FOR $129.99
BUT I'M SURE AMAZON SELLS IT AS WELL...
YOU KNOW EVENTUALLY I HAD TO GET TO A FOOD
PRODUCT...
MY VERY FAVORITE OLIVE OIL OF ALL TIME....
IT'S A SHAME I HATE WHOLE FOODS...
BECAUSE I HAVE TO DRIVE ALL THE WAY TO THE OTHER
SIDE OF THE COUNTY TO BUY MY TWO BOTTLES
A MONTH...
YES I GO THROUGH TWO BOTTLES A MONTH...
I USE IT FOR EVERYTHING...
WHY NOT....IT'S ONLY $7.99 FOR A HUGE BOTTLE
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT YEAR WHEN A
WHOLE FOODS OPENS UP AT OUR CORNER...
I WILL STILL NEVER BUY ANYTHING ELSE
BUT OLIVE OIL...
WAY TOO EXPENSIVE FOR MY TASTE......
LAST YEAR WE WERE ON A RAO'S SAUCE KICK....
UNTIL I DISCOVERED THIS AT
"SPROUTS"
IF YOU DON'T HAVE A SPROUTS NEAR YOU YET...
GET EXCITED IF YOU SEE ONE COMING...
THINK "WHOLE FOODS"
AT HALF THE SIZE AND WITH CHEAP PRICES...

THE CHEAPEST PRODUCE EVER....
FOR INSTANCE 49 CENTS A POUND FOR GREEN PEPPERS....
THIS TOMATO SAUCE IS OUTSTANDING...
YOU CAN ALSO BUY IT ONLINE
AT
WWW.COLAVITA.COM
BUT ADD IN SHIPPING FOR A DOZEN JARS AND IT'S
VERY PRICEY....

AT SPROUTS I HAVE PAID AS LITTLE AS $4.29 A JAR
HALF THE PRICE OF RAO'S
LASTLY LET'S TALK CARS!!
ONE OF THE ADIVARI'S FAVORITE SUBJECTS...

I ONLY BRING THIS UP BECAUSE A LOT OF LADIES I KNOW
ARE LOOKING AT BUYING AN S.U.V.
THIS IS A PORSCHE CAYENNE....
I HAVE OWNED ONE FOR ALMOST 5 YEARS NOW....
WHAT A CAR....
ALMOST EVERY PERSON IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD
DRIVES A WHITE LEXUS S.U.V.
WHEN WE PASS THESE PEOPLE COMING AND GOING WE NEVER
KNOW IF WE'RE WAVING AT PEOPLE THAT LOVE US OR
PEOPLE THAT HATE US....
WITH US IT'S MORE LIKELY TO BE THE LATTER....


EVERYBODY DRIVES A LEXUS....
IF A NEW S.U.V. IS IN YOUR FUTURE JUST GO TO A
PORSCHE DEALER AND GIVE ONE A WHIRL....
MY GOSH...IT'S LIKE SITTING ON YOUR LIVING ROOM
 SOFA WITH WHEELS...
THE MOST ELEGANT COMFORTABLE FAST (400 H.P)
CAR I HAVE EVER OWNED...
IT'S OF COURSE GERMAN MADE....
AND YOU KNOW WHAT VINCE OF THE "SHAM WOW" COMMERCIALS
USED TO SAY....
"YOU KNOW THOSE GERMANS....THEY MAKE GOOD STUFF"
JUST GO TEST DRIVE ONE...
AND LOOK AT IT THIS WAY...
YOUR GETTING AN AWFUL LOT OF "PORSCHE"
FOR YOUR MONEY...
PROBABLY THE BEST VALUE OF ANY LUXURY CAR...

GIVEN THEIR REPUTATION....

AND NOW FOR WHAT I WOULD LIKE TO FIND
IN 2016 THAT I HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO FIND SO FAR....
JUST TWO LITTLE THINGS ON MY "NEW YEAR WISH LIST"...
 
THESE FABULOUS HUNTER BOOTS WITH THE
UNION JACK FLAG....
BECAUSE I LOVE ANYTHING WITH A FLAG...
AREN'T THEY GREAT....

AND FINALLY...
THE #1 ITEM ON MY "AMAZON WISH LIST".......
I CHECK WEEKLY TO SEE IF IT'S AVAILABLE....
SO FAR NO LUCK...
BUT I'M FIGURING ONE OF THESE DAYS HIS WIFE WILL GET
FED UP WITH SOMETHING HE DOES....SOME BAD HABIT...
DIRTY CLOTHES THROWN ON THE FLOOR...
TOILET SEAT LEFT UP...
SOMETHING

AND I'LL BE RIGHT THERE WITH MY AMERICAN EXPRESS CARD
IN HAND!!

You are a riot!
I want one of that last item too, but I think his heart is in Hawaii and I definitely don't live in Hawaii.
Thanks for all the tips - I like the sound of your face cream.

Barbara F. said...

Great tips. I love Colavita products, very easy to find here. A friend in GA just got a Yeti. Never heard of them. Good to have in a power outage to keep frozen food in. Face cream sounds good, too. And a hairspray that actually smells good. Wow. I do enjoy a trip to Wal-Mart. Yhey are not allowed to open in NYC, because our city government is run by idiots, so I go over the bridge to NJ. The ones in PA are even better.

I think one of these days I want to follow you on one of your trips to Walmart! You crack me up!!! What a fun list of recommended "Favorite things"!

Cheri said...

Love your review...and maybe you should ask daughter for a B-day trip to see and meet Mr. Tom Selleck, but don't wait 20 years.

Chatty Crone said...

I love your writing and your review - I have to go back now and take notes. I have used that cream but body cream and it is orange - this one is just for the face - good stuff. I just went to sprouts Sunday, I love that store too. You can get that hairspray at the Drug Store on line. The cups I sent a note to my niece she was just looking for one yesterday. Funny. So hope you have a good day - going to write some products down. Oh yes and I like old Tom too.

My dear friend, I will fight you for Tom! Only man I would want at this point in my life! Sigh...I wish there was a Sprouts here in Athens. I shopped at one near Ashleigh in Calif and LOVED it. I have wondered about Kiehl's and may have to try it. I'm a Cetaphil user for years. Fun post!!
hugs,
Linda

Sue, as I was reading your review, I heard it in your voice in my head and was laughing out loud! Great ideas to try, maybe I'll get a Porsche SUV for Valentine's day! LOL, not likely! That's okay, I love my Town and Country Van! LOl

Love the name of this post! So funny! Oprah's not the only one with favorites. lol
I'm taking pics of some of your items so I don't forget them! There's a lot of the Porsche suvs around here and I've told hubby my navigator is larger than I now need. Good to know this suv is that comfortable, etc. But, then I probably couldn't have a Panamera or Mercedes. :( I'm a car person too! :) Son gets it honest. lol
I wonder if that cream would work with my combination skin and now I have rosacea? I'll check it out.
We have a Trader Joe's at the corner which we love. We also have a Fresh Market and Whole Foods around the corner and the only one we don't shop at is Whole Foods.
My son works at Hendrick's Cary Auto Mall as an Appraiser. I showed him your car and he loves it! There's a lot of Corvette lovers around here. Son wants a new ZO6...down the road. :)
Enjoy your day!
hugs,
Marie
