Shortlisted: You Smell Lemon Paper Soap

Soap copyWelcome to the second installment of “Shortlisted” where I highlight my favorite most useful things. Because what good are fabulous things if you don’t share them?

Today’s item that makes my shortlist is You Smell Lemon Paper Soap!

I was recently introduced to this amazing soap and I will never leave my house without it in my purse again. I can’t count the number of times I’ve used public bathrooms and discovered they are out of soap. Hand sanitizer was great at keeping my hands clean, but it often left my hands dry and smelling harsh.

As we look back 12 years ago – no doubt people will be talking about “where they were” when the world changed on September 11, 2001.

I’ve told my story time and time again but today I want to share a very important list with you: a list of the men and women who didn’t return home on that historic day. This is what you should be thinking about.

This list should give you pause – and make you step back and really look at what is important in your life. Sometimes the items on your to-do list don’t really matter that much after all. Take the time to connect with your loved ones instead and really think about your wonderful life.

Here are the names of the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives on 9/11:

Do you always spend extra time trying to figure out what to wear? Does it ever feel like you don’t have anything to wear? I’ve mentioned before that laying your outfit out the night before can make your life just a little bit easier — but that may not change the “I’ve got nothing to wear!” feeling you might have when you stand in front of your closet. It also doesn’t help you build your closet.

I’ve scoped out a few options to help you get organized!

Make the Most of Your Weekend

Remember that song “Working for the Weekend” by Loverboy from the 80s?  Here’s a look if you don’t remember or just want to dance at your desk.   

It always puts a smile on my face! Weekends are the best — I think you’d be hard pressed to find someone who disagrees. You have time to sleep in and indulge in all the things you’re too busy for during the work week.
