My Five Favorites ~ Gadgets I Love


Hi friends, sorry I've been MIA, we've had some fun happenings
around here lately, I'll fill you in on what I've been up to next week. In the meantime,
it's time for another My Five Favorites, this month my pals and I are dishing on our
 favorite gadgets. To be honest, I'm not much of a gadget girl, it has to be pretty good to
 take up space in my house. I'm anxious to check out my friends' favs.   

Jennifer @ Dimples & Tangles

I'm so excited to introduce our guest this month, when I first discovered the world of blogs,
 Sarah @ Thrifty Decor Chick was one of the first I read. I couldn't wait for her posts,
 she was funny, down to earth, and had awesome DIY skills. I was hooked big time!
 All these years later and I still love following along with all the updates to her charming
 home and yard.

Ok, back to the gadgets...

#1 - Apple Peeler/Corer

I've had mine for probably 20 years, it makes baking apple pies super quick and easy, and 
it's a fun toy that encourages everyone to help. :)
Mine is heavy duty cast iron from Ace Hardware $23.99, but I recently saw this similar
smaller version at World Market for $9.99


#2 - Clip and Drain 

One day while I was in Sur La Table I overheard a lady telling her friend how great this
clip on colander was, after they left I asked the sales person about it and she said they sell a
 ton of them. It's not large but she said it worked great even on large stock pots of potatoes or pasta...and it does!!!  

    

#3 - Paint Pouring Spout

I'm a little OCD when it comes to painting, I like all my tools neat and clean. :) 
This plastic spout fits on the top of your paint can and keeps the paint from running down 
the sides and collecting in the rim at the top of the can. 
It cleans up easily, you can find it at Ace Hardware $2.59


See that clean paint free rim!


#4 - Sisal Body Brush

I know this is a stretch for the gadget category, but it's a good one!
My sweet friend has worked at Anthropologie for years, she received this body brush at an
Anthro Favorite Things Christmas Party from another employee. 
It can be used wet in the shower or dry before showering, I like to use it dry over my
 entire body. It's the best exfoliator and only $10.00 at Anthropologie.
  It also makes a great girlfriend gift paired with one of their cleansers.  


#5 - Clarisonic

This is probably my all time favorite gadget - I've had it forever, it's one of the originals, 
and still works perfectly, I just replace the heads as needed. It always gets rave reviews
 online and I'm right in there with 5 stars! Several different options are available now,
 mine was from Nordstrom.    



Be sure and check out these talented friends' favs:


You can also find me on Instagram and Pinterest.

Ahhh the Clarisonic!!! I love mine and now my 17 year old daughter has started "borrowing" it. I have to investigate that sisal body brush too! Thanks for the tips and hope you're enjoying a little time off!!

Thanks for the ideas, want to try one of those dry/wet brushes plus that paint can lid. I wonder if that would help me paint better, probably not!

My hubs is in dire need of that thing for the paint can. We have in common the Clarisonic and the Gentle Cetaphil! That's why we look so young, right?😉

Great gadgets..will have to check out that Clip and Drain and the paint can pour!....Looking forward to what you have been up to...Happy Summer!

love my clarisonic! i have the one for face and body. but also love to dry scrub with a body brush from whole foods. i'll check this one out though...looks "softer" than the whole foods one. definitely going to check out the clip and drain...looks like that could be a game changer for me. thanks for the tip!
