My Favorite Things

For those of you who need them, here are some gift ideas - my very favorite things:


Seven Dry Shampoo
I have tried a dozen dry shampoos at this point, trying to find one that doesn't leave my hair white and my scalp itchy. Seven's Dry Shampoo is expensive, but it is so much better than all the others I have tried it's in a league all by itself.



Vivo Barefoot Shoes for kids over 5
The shoes Anders wore after he was 5, again the focus is on healthy food and body development

Hanna Anderson Moccasins for kids under 5
Shoes that don't harm developing feet, the only shoes Anders wore until he was 5

Dress Up Shoes for Boys

Rain Boots
Western Chief Firechief 2 Rain Pull-On Boot

Children should never wear clothing that would hinder their body's natural movement. Many of today's jeans prevent proper bending and sitting and encourage slouching, for example.

Kids Sun Hat

World History Time Line

Evolution and Classification of Life Poster

Art Classes
Because beauty is objective

and the book

Vivo Barefoot Shoes
I still love Vibram five fingers, but I like these better because they are easier to put on and I get to wear socks.

MSM Shampoo and Conditioner
Over the last five years I have switched natural shampoo and conditioner pretty much every other month, going through many brands searching for one that would meet my needs to soft, shiny, hair and toxin free ingredients. This is the first one I have tried that I would recommend to other people.

LoveStock Tallow Balm
We are animals, not plants. Why would we rub plant oils on our bodies when we need moisturizer? Best lotion/chapstick I have ever used, no contest.


Blinc Mascara I tried over a dozen mascaras looking for one that would not leave shadows under my eyes. This is the only one I have ever found that does not.

The Wet Brush
A post-shower revolution!

Fashion Academy Personal Colour Consultant 
A handy little book about the size of a checkbook that has your best colors in it. (Beauty is objective. There are colors that maximize your attractiveness potential and colors that kill your attractiveness potential. The more attractive you are, the more likely you are to get what you want in any situation. Maximizing your attractiveness potential is not a superficial thing to attend to!) I have one of these books for me, my husband, and my son. I keep them in my purse when I go clothes shopping.
Carolyn did our colors in seconds using pictures of us on Facebook. I sent her a check in the mail, and she mailed me our booklets. and send her a check


Williams-Sonoma Veggie Chopper
The kitchen tool I use more than any other, chop onions without killing your eyes!

The Sunrise Alarm Clock
I loved this thing back in the days when I woke up by non-child alarm clock and lived in a city where I was deprived of the darkness and light that regulates my sleeping at our farm in Nicaragua.


Women's Pajamas



Firefly & Serenity
The Matrix
Into the Wild
The Incredibles
The Iron Giant

ANYTHING THEY SELL AT I have never found any other company to be as knowledgable as these two about things like air and water purifiers, mattresses, and other home goods. A person answers the phone and will tell you the whys on all of their products. I highly value customer service like theirs! (for those of you with a politically incorrect sense of humor)
