’s Favorite Things!

Oprah just released her favorite things of the year, so we thought it was time we did too! Unlike Oraph’s favorite things, I have no discounts for you on any of these (I know, boo!) but most of them are $30 and under.

Paddy Wax Candles

The come in a variety of sizes of fragrance, sizes and styles but we are suckers for the mason jar look. The 3 oz. size is a great hostess gift ($10 each) and are favorite scent is the Sea Salt and Ocean Tide (but I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with any of their scents!)

Oiselle’s Verra Bra

This scrappy and supportive sports bra fits like a glove, no chaffing, and the straps add a little extra flare to your razor back running top! Once you get one, you’ll probably want another.

Cherryvale Farms Pumpkin Bread Mix

I love the concept of this local company, claiming “everything but the” main whole ingredient. Their moist and seasonal favorite Pumpkin Bread has everything but the canned Pumpkin, eggs and water. Perfect for the gal who wants the semi homemade experience:) I also love to through in walnuts or chocolate chip in this one. SO good and great to bring to holiday parties. They have a bunch of other varieties of mixes too!

Stance Socks

Yep these are pretty hot right now in the running world. From low socks to compression socks, these stylish bright patterns just may be the motivation to get you out the door. Besides their super funky designs they have comfort to boot!


Andalou’s CC Cream

This stuff is magic, all natural, and perfect for a gal going for a natural look. It’s moisturizing, color correcting (aka smoothing your complexion) is great for sensitive skin and has SPF 30. I’m seriously obsessed with it and wear it everyday- with or without mascara!


Brooks Adrenaline Shoes

No this is not a sponsor post, I buy a lot of these each year. Running shoes are expensive but to make myself feel better I remind myself I wear them everyday– way more than a pair of boots or heels. Plus having running shoes that keep your legs and feet healthy is important! These are my favorite but you have to decide which shoes fit your body, feet and running goals best.


Verve Coffee

It’s the simply the best. I’m a one cup a day kinda girl, so if I’m going to have one it might as well be the best. Full of flavor and the perfect boost. I go sleep excited to have this in the morning (true story!)

Meyers Hand Soap

As someone who strives for simple living, most of my favorite things are items I use daily (keep the favorites and things you use often and toss or don’t buy the things that sit there for occasional use!) This soap is my favorite for a few reasons: it’s natural ingredients, delicious scent ( Basil? I know sounds weird but seriously it smells amazing!), and clean feeling. I’ve actually thrown a bow on here and given it as a hostess gift- it’s a crowd pleaser.  Most everyone uses soap!


Classic Bolga from Blessing Basket

Talk about a feel good item. These sustainable baskets generate (fair trade) income from the actual weaver of each basket. When you get the order you can learn about who actually made it. These baskets are great for farmers market, grocery store, kids toys, or decor.

Sparkly Soul Head Bands

Every once in a while, glitter makes my smile. I really love these running head bands and they seem to stay on my head while running. Function and fashion? I’m in.


Everyday Tote by Street Level

Love love this simple tote (and it’s 50% off right now  normally $48 no $23 from Nordstrom). This two-toned bag is great for work, gym, errands, school, or kids. You pick.

That’s all for today. As the holiday season craze begins, remember running is free and the best gift to yourself, ever. Get outside.
