  • I am sharing because...
  • you might want to try them
  • you will get to know me better
  • you might share some of your faves in return, which might become some of MY faves!
  • there is no rhyme or reason to the order right now - I'm just adding as things pop into my head
  • I may receive a commission - I will make it clear with an asterisk (*) if that is the case, and I will NEVER recommend something that I don't love.
