I was going to title this Oprah’s fave things, but thought the peeps at Harpo might get mad and claim copy-write infringement. Whatevs. So now it’s ColoradoMoms Favorite Things. Same as Oprah though. I’m going to give you an unsponsored, totally biased list of what I have been using/loving/crushing each week. I don’t want to just list out the things people pay me to say. I want you to know that this is a list of things I like regardless if they pay me. Wait, can we get them to pay me? I take payment in the form of free shiz and coffee. It’s what I live on.

Here ya go… For the week of August whatever-was-monday 16th, the following are products I’ve used and loved all week…

Neutrogena® Oil Free Acne Wash – The redness soothing gentle scrub. LOVE this stuff. For reals! I get zits more now in my (ahem) 30’s than I did at 16. This stuff is magical and I get maybe 3 or 4 zits a month vs. 3-4 a day like i used to! You can find it on my other favorite thing…

Soap.com – I met them at BlogHer. They are the new sister site of diapers.com. I got some coupon codes and gift cert codes and thought, well, at least I’ll get diapers if anything. OMG, they carry my Neutrogena face stuff that my grocery store stopped carrying (buttheads!). Super fast shipping too!

Marshmallow Fluff for Fluffernutter sandwiches – Can’t get it in Colorado stores. Yeah, I know i can get generic or JetPuff, but for those of you who have actually had a real, true Fluffernutter, you get me. You understand why I have my BFF in CT ship it to me every so often. The BEST is when you eat it at midnight, while trying to finish a blog post, washing it down with a Diet Coke or Cherry Coke Zero. mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm Yummy!

My fake Prada bag I got in NYC from a guy on the street with a suitcase and shifty eyes. For $30 Ya’ll! And I got a mini Coach one for only $20! Prada/Coach yumminess!

That’s it for this week. I know, kinda boring, but I don’t live that exciting of a life that I get to use things like Louboutin shoes and dine with Martha Stewart. I go to blogging conventions and stalk The Bloggess. Jealous much? Yeah, didn’t think so. 😉
