Some Of My Favourite Things

I thought that I would share with you some of the things that I CANNOT live without. Okay, I 'can' live without them but I really don't want to ;o)

First up, and high on the list, is my new iron. This puppy is FANTASTIC! I never thought that I would love an iron as much as I love this one. And it even changes colors! I shit you not. LOL!


Isn't it pretty? This is Thermocolour by Russell Hobbs. I was quite surprised at the decent price considering how nice this iron is. It's got a ceramic plate and it glides oh so effortlessly over fabric :o) Check out their website to see the colors in action and if you live in the UK, you can enter to win one!

Having a bad day? You've come home from work and you just want to drink your sorrows away but you don't want after effects of a hangover? Well I've got just the thing :o) Why not kick back a few Mocktail Mojitos -


These are so yummy! A refreshing lime taste that goes down so easy on a hot summer day. Ahhhhh!

Okay, next up, it's that time of the month and you're craving...something. You just can't put your finger on it. I found, well Ben & Jerry's found 'the' perfect solution with their new ice cream Everything But The... -


OMG! This is like at least five ice cream flavours in one. How could you not go wrong with that?

So those are some of my favourite things. Have you found something that's so awesome that you want to share it? Love to hear about it :o)

I can't believe you've found an iron you love. I've had so many different ones, and none have worked very well. Is that even sold in the U.S.?

My crop-a-dile and seam ripper are my two favorite items. ;-)

Mel said...

This is a great list! :)
I am jealous of Ben & Jerry's it's nearly impossible to find in Canada. :(

Rachel S said...

That iron looks awesome! It's a mood iron,LOL.

I don't know how many things I have that I love. I do like my XM radio a heck of a lot. I wish I had it in the house.

And my iced tea maker. We already wore one of them out. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

You finally got a nice iron. It looks a lot like mine except mine does not change colours.

My sewing room is my favorite thing and your Dad has finished the window, so tomorrow I put it back to rights. My new kitchen is a close second and of course, my Royal Doulton figurines are right up there too.

{{{Love and Hugs}}}

Great list, Cathey!

That iron looks like it was hatched in outer space - would love to try that thing out. I haven't seen any of those items here in the sticks. One of my favorite things is my HP mini laptop.

That ice-cream looks and sounds totally delectable. Some of mt favorite things are; snuggles with my kids and DH, my computer so that I can catch up with my internet-buddies, and chocolate, preferably with little minty, crispy chips.

I haven't ironed in about 100 years!

I'll keep an eye out for the mojito mocktail ... sounds yummy!

Karin said...

I didn't realize Superstore made mocktails - I'll have to look for them.

Irene said...

Cool iron ! Will have to give the Mocktail Mojitos a try and look for the ice cream, not sure we have Ben & Jerry's around here. My newest gadget is The Magic Bullet, great for smoothies.

Olenka's Stitches said...

An awesome iron!

Lisa said...

I used to have a really cool Iron & then I discovered a local work from home mum that collects, irons & delivers back the next day I figured I was helping her out by using her services :-)

I have to say that I can't live without my twins... they're as exhausting as they sound but I love em to bits & wouldn't swap em for the world... well maybe... if it was made of chocolate ;-)

Ranae said...

I don't iron, but that would be fun. I do iron my sitchy things now and then. Mine looks like a antique compared to that one, lol.
I can't live without Starbucks, frappucino's

Alberta said...

I'm in the market for a new iron...will check that one out! We also like fresh lime grated into a drink...I like ginger ale. We started grating a bit of ginger for added punch, very refreshing on a hot day. Now we are into the hot chocolate anyone?

~Tammy said...


I can't live without my Starbucks. I'm trying to cut back to only 1 or 2 times per week. Some days are good and some days are grumpy!

Sharon said...

I could really use a mocktail mojito myself. Cool list!

Lili said...

Well, I don't love my iron... At all... Lol!
I couldn't do without my stitching, my TV and my computer... The rest... I don't care. Lol!
My, I always forget Thanksgiving is so soon in Canada...
Looking forward to this pumpkin day, sweet Pumpkin.
Hugs sweetie!
Lili who's off the puter now, to iron some shirts for her oh soooo beloved DH. Lol!

The Ben and Jerry's sounds wonderful. I normally get the Cherry Garcia, don't remember having seen the Everything flavor, I'll have to look for it next time I'm at the store. Cute picture of the little fox cub, and Birds and Berries is looking great.

I don't know any of those 3 products around here! But your idea for the post was very original and interesting! One of these days I'll do the same, my favourite things in the portuguese version :p lol!
