My Favorite New or New to Me Products of the Year

top products of 2011
 Charming Charlie: This is my newest favorite jewelry store ever. I can’t believe I didn’t discover it until this year. After hearing about the chain on Youtube through Kandee Johnson (www.kandeej.com), I looked it up and saw that there are a few stores within an hour of my location. Let me tell you, this place is totally worth the drive. They have so much cute jewelry and it’s all reasonably priced. If you like Claire’s, you’ll love Charming Charlie.

I saw this baby in my Ulta and said, “THAT is an awesome palette” and scooped it up. Weeks later, I was hearing about the demand for this palette and I was so happy I got mine when I did. Fast forward to now, they’ve just released the Naked 2 Palette and with the demand for Naked 1, everyone is trying to grab Naked 2 at breakneck speed. I will be getting Naked 2 for myself but I don’t know when…. 🙂 Read on for more pics and review….

I love filling my home with fragrance but I also need the ability to control the amount of fragrance is dispersed. This works perfectly for that! Basically, this wax warmer is a new take on the old Tart warmers with a tea light candle below the wax. Read on for more…….
