These are a few of my F.A.V.O.R.I.T.E things

As 2010 draws to a close I decided to share what has become a few of my favorite things in the past few months. Since we have 5 days left in the year I selected 5 items to share with my readers. This is in no way an encouragement to go out shopping! As a matter of fact, I forbid you...just kidding. Please let me know where you find great sales and thrift treasures so I can window shop (:

Here is my list in no particular order:

1.My new Android Samsung Vibrant. Yaaassss that is the beautiful Alek Wek as my background pic. I'm motivated to be fab because she's seriously fantabulous! I switched to android from a Blackberry and I can tell you that I'm pretty pleased. I must admit that I do miss BBM and the qwerty keyboard but the media side of this phone is phenomenal. 

2. Cup of tea anyone? I prefer tea over coffee on any given day. My favorite is Vanilla Chai and Madagascar vanilla read. I love sipping a cup of tea early on a Saturday morning, sitting on my patio with my faced turned towards a freshly awakened sky. The aroma transports me and helps to relieve the stress. Do you have a favorite tea? What's your preference of the two beverages? 

3. I love my NY & Co skinny jeans for a few reasons. My top reason is they fit like a glove but they give, they stretch and they allow me to move and now feel like my knees are locked up. I purchased them a few months back with a coupon plus my educators discount with id. They length of jeans are extremely important to me so when I found my size in a long I was ecstatic! I now have a pair of jeans I can wear heels with and the jean reach or touch the top of my show. 

4. One would think that I have no time for pleasure reading (honestly, I don't) but when I do I usually catch up on magazines and young adult literature or just the many books I have lying around my apartment. I just rediscovered a novel The Dewbreaker by Edwidge Danticat that I misplaced a year ago. I can't wait to reread it. There is no way at this point I can pick up where I left off because I was in the middle of the book. Does this ever happen to you?

5. and last but not least...a girl's other best-friend (drum roll please)..lipstick. Amazing that I began wearing makeup 6 months ago. I started out watching YouTube tutorials recommended by my BFF and from there I started following blogs about makeup and tweets. Now I can honestly say that I am becoming more comfortable enhancing my beauty and learning daily with practice what works and does not work. I treated myself to a new lip-color by MAC called Syrup and I LOVE this tube of pink. See for yourself.

P. S. I know I said 5 things and there's a lip moisturizer in the picture with the lipstick but my BFF swore by this lip balm during our last birthday celebration. If there is one thing I've learned is that lipstick doesn't look good on dry chapped lips. Air kisses!

What are your five favorite things at the moment? I'd love to hear from you.

I love, love, love tea. My mom has that same brand but I really don't have a brand preference. My favorite flavor is pomegranate and jasmine with manta (I think that's the flavor) or anything pomegranate.

I've read "Breath, Eyes, Memory" by Edwinge Danticat and I absolutely love her. I might have to check out The Dewbreaker.

Edwidge Danticat is a phenomenal writer. I learned so much more about Haitian culture after reading her words. She incorporates history so effortlessly into her novels.
Truth is ladies, I 'm addicted to books, makeup and clothes..shhhh I don't want anyone else to know :)
Carla, I just had a cup of tea :)
