Top 2 Tuesdays: things you cant live without

Tuesday again, so Taylor is hosting:

Top 2 things you cant live without

(ok....these are not my TOP2, I am not thinking along the lines of Ryan, Blake, family, faith, food, water, roof overe our head, etc.)
1. Lipstick/Lip gloss

I seriously HAVE to wear lipstick all of the time. My lips feel naked without something on them. I am not one for just clear chap stick either...I like color and shine! Lipstick makes such a difference in my appearance. I have pretty small lips, so they need a pop of color!! I typically where both stick and gloss at the same time...a bottom layer of lipstick and a top coat of shiny gloss!! I reapply frequently throughout the day!!



2. Caffeine!
I wake up and have coffee.....I drink coffee until lunch time, and then I switch to diet coke. Pretty much have caffeine ALL DAY LONG. I don't function well without it! I had a hard time when I was preggers for Blake...I had to switch to tea and caffeine free diet coke...just not the same!! I KNOW that I should be drinking water....but I just love my coffee and dc!!




Hop over here for more!!

I have coffee every morning too but I don't feel like it really affects me. I think it's more of a mental thing than anything else..like "oh I really need coffee to wake me up!" when in reality, I don't think it actually does anything to me. Oh well, I still drink it!

ha ha....i love my coffee but b/c i have vertigo really bad all the time i switched to half caff to help. i don't feel as guilty when have a cup while preggers.
you should see ppl who don't know that it's half caff though and drink like the whole pot to get a buzz! ha ha

Great Picks! I would be one ill little bird without my caffine! Your blog is too cute! Thanks for sharing! Happy Tuesday!

Salt said...

Me too! Well I'm actually more of a gloss girl, but I have about 10 tubes of varying shades in my purse right now.

And man do I love me some Diet Coke. I've been trying to cut back on the coffee lately and have been drinking more hot chocolate in the mornings, but I sure do look forward to my Starbucks peppermint mochas once a week. Those are my most awake work days!

Susan said...

I agree, I need something on my lips 24/7 and coffee is a MUST every morning (don't even think of speaking to me BEFORE my coffee)!!! haha ~ Great choices:)

I used to be that way too with the Caffeine. But, I was more just a Diet Coke drinker (although I did lust after the occasional Starbucks/Gloria Jean Mocha Frappucino)

When I got preggers, I never thought I'd be able to go without it, but amazing how mommmyhood kicks in, and I even gave up drinking soda for 8 months, with an occasional Sprite/7-up.

Now, I'm drinking soda again, but I drink caffeine free bc I'm still nursing the pumpkins. I dont; need her bouncing off the walls!! Ha, Ha!!

I always like to have lip color too, but have become more laxed with it, since showering became a luxury, ha, ha!!

Great choices. I'm a caffeine girl too. But lipstick has just never really been my thing. I wish I could find a color I do actually like on myself.

Amber said...

I always have to have both of those! I could not function without some sort of caffeine.

& like I said on my blog, I would go crazy without some sort of lip balm, chap stick,or lip gloss!

Samantha Levang said...

Ooo, good call on the lip gloss! I'm a Carmex girl myself. :-)

Taylor @ The Undomestic Momma said...

I love both of those too!!!!!!

Jordan said...

I used to drink Diet Coke quite frequently but stopped drinking it over a month ago. It was much either than I originally thought it was going to be. Great choices! :-)

Great picks! Your #1 reminds me that I need to start wearing a little more color on my lips!

brookesbabble said...

Caffeine would have been on mine too but I gave it up for lent (along with chocolate!)! great picks!

3LittleMonkeys said...

Love both of those things too! Coffee is a must. Before I had kids I didn't drink the stuff, now I can't live without it!

Heather said...

I have to have my coffee buzz of a morning too! My day just isn't right without it!

Juggling Thoughts said...

I'm so glad you like lipstick and not lip GLOSS! I just can't do that lip gloss stuff...it gets too cakey!

Molly said...

AMEN on the caffeine!! :)

jenn said...

love the diet coke too!!!

Ha, Yes my dogs name is Annie, I was obsessed with the movie Annie when I was a kid. So go figure I named my pet Annie. I wasn't sure how long it would be before we had kids so the dog got the name. We call her all sorts of names though, I'm sure you've heard them all.
Annie, Annie bell, Annie bananie, Annie baby, naners, naner bells.

I can't help but give her nicknames =)

Tiffany said...

Ok, mine would be Burt's Bees for SURE! And diet Coke would be pretty high on my list too....thought I might choose my iPhone and then DC!

Shannon said...

Totally with you on the whole diet coke thing. I am a bit of dc junkie myself! Have to kick start the mornings with one. Adorable blog! Have a great Wednesday!
