Nikki's Favorite Things

In lieu of a post discussing the more serious things that are cluttering my mind, I am giving you this excuse for a post. I hope everyone had a Happy Easter/Passover!

The NOOK Color

This is one of my favorite things that I own and by far, one of the best Christmas gifts I have ever received. I used to read a lot when I was younger and thanks to the NOOK, I have fallen back into that hobby. It is a tad pricer than the regular NOOK, but with the backlight and full touch screen, it is well worth the price. Some of the books that are currently in my library are: The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (just finished it today), Something Borrowed, The Great Gatesby, and A Place of Yes. I love how light it is to carry with me and I often read on the bus ride to and from school.


In a rather impulsive moment last August, I decided to purchase something that I have had on my wish list for almost two years - a white MacBook. In hindsight, I should have waited until I had paid off my credit card debt, but I just wanted it that badly. Also, I should have opted for the MacBook Pro but I was just dying to have the white laptop. I am obsessed with this machine and all that it can do. I will never buy another PC again, unless its for work.

elf Makeup

One of my best friends recommended this site to me and I have been obsessed ever since. Good quality makeup that is super, super cheap. Most of their products are only $1 each and their mineral makeup items run for about $6 each. Fucking amazing!! Plus, they almost always have promos with free shipping (like right now!) so you truly cannot beat it.

Samsung Fascinate

Late last year, I desperately needed a new phone. My beloved BlackBerry was dying and I really wanted the iPhone but Verizon still was not carrying, so I ended up with the Fascinate. Even though I still have a slight case of iPhone envy, I am obsessed with this phone, which in my opinion is the closest thing to it. There are TONS of free apps in the Android market and the phone never freezes.

Wen by Chaz Dean Hair Care

I don't care how expensive this shit is, I will never go back to regular shampoo. I have very thick, coarse, almost "nappy" hair and this works miracles for it! My hair takes less than half the time to style now and it is so much easier to work with.

Fuck Oprah, my list is way better ; )

I love Elf cosmetics too! I may have to try that shampoo, I have some crazy hair.

ELF is great! I have a few things of theirs. I wouldn't use it for foundation, but good tools, glosses, and pencils!

Missy said...

I have had Samsungs for ages now and love their phones (I also have Samsung tv and laptop- not planned lol) and ocassionaly get the odd HTC envy but then it soon goes!

Just stopping by from Mingle Monday :-)

Hey, jsut stopping by from Mingle Monday!
I got thw Nook Color for Christmas too, and I LOVE it! You're right- it's incredibly light, which is way easier to commute with instead of an actual book. I just finished Wicked, and am about half way through The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo.

Have a great week!

Olivia said...

I've been dying to try the WEN products - I may have to soon! :)

Nikki Jo said...

Jessi & Olivia - TRY THEM! Well worth the price, just takes a few uses to get used to.

Meg - I actually use their mineral face makeup and love it. The coverage is not so good though, its only good for those days that my skin is behaving haha. GREAT tools and the nail polish is really good too.

Missy - This is my first Samsung phone and I was pleasantly surprised!

Desi - Have a great week! I LOVED The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, its a little disturbing but a great story and it kept me on my toes. I am now reading Something Borrowed, to break it up a little before I begin the second book. I cannot put it down!

You're not missing anything with iPhone - it sucks in my opinion. Hang on to that Android! I'm about to make the switch too :-) Great blog by the way!
