Animal Phone Cord Keeper

1.  Cable Bites phone cord protector

This is one of those check out aisle impulse buys you won’t regret.  They’re available individually at Walmart for just a few bucks each.  I’m looking forward to the practical side of these little guys when both kids are home in the summer and there’s confusion about who gets the charger.

Lancome eye cream

2.  Under eye cream

A friend gifted me a sample size of this incredible product and I feel like a queen every time I use it.  I’ve definitely noticed an improvement in under eye wrinkles and it feels like silk going on.

If you’re looking for a more affordable version, I suggest Neutrogena Hydro-Boost eye gel.

As warmer weather appears, I find these guys indispensible for keeping those stray ponytail hairs off my neck, as well as pinning bangs back.

Chimes Chews

4.  Chimes ginger chews

Those of us with food intolerance and sensitive stomachs know the importance of quick relief from a sour stomach.  I discovered these tiny treasures at Tuesday Morning and TJ Maxx, and have gotten in the habit of keeping them on hand.

They come in a variety of flavors and are much healthier than popping antacids.

Here’s a quote to remind you to stop just for a second and appreciate all the little things around you today.

“To live content with small means- to seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion, to be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich- to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly, to listen to stars and birds, babes and sages, with open heart- to bear all cheerfully- do all bravely, await occasions- never hurry; in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.  This is to be my symphony.
