Leslie Loves...{1.02}

I got a lot of positive feedback on last week's "Leslie Loves..." post, so I'm very excited to see what you've got to say about this week's must-haves.  If you currently have or decide to purchase anything that I list in a "Leslie Loves..." post, please leave me a comment to let me know what YOU think of it.   

Let's get to it...

Sassybax Leggings

TO.DIE.FOR...perfection!  These leggings are better than Spanx.....yes, I'm serious! They're convertible, so they serve the same purpose as Spanx if you keep the belly band up...or you can fold the belly band down and they become perfectly cute fitted pants.  The website says, "from exercise to out at night, you can live in these leggings!" I can attest to this...well, not so much the exercising part, but if I did exercise, I'd definitely wear my Sassybax!  So very comfortable...but even better than that:  so very flattering!

I used to be one of those "leggings are not pants" girls...but I'm telling you, these could be pants.  They're totally opaque, definitely thicker fabric than typical leggings.  I also love that they're long and a bit loose at the bottom.  I usually tuck them under my heel if I'm wearing heels or flats.  I've washed mine approximately 94,502,347 times...and they still look brand new!  I think the washing instructions suggest hand-washing, but I wash mine in a lingerie bag in cold water on the delicate cycle (with a little Diva Wash, of course) and lay them flat to dry.      

If you still need convincing that Sassybax are the best leggings on the planet, just watch this little video....

Sassybax are no longer available at Joyus. 
I just posted this video to convince you these leggings are absolutely A-MAZing!

Yes, I know...Sassybax are a little pricey, but I promise they are WORTH.EVERY.PENNY!  I know how much you're willing to pay for a pair of jeans, and I guarantee you'll wear these leggings more than any pair of jeans you own.  They're versatile, remember?  From work to working out to going out.   

Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo

Washing/styling my hair might be my most-hated task.  I do it as infrequently as possible, so I'm well-versed in the area of dry shampoo.  You name it, I've probably tried it.  I found Oscar Blandi Dry Shampoo about a year ago, and I've never looked back.  LOVE.IT.  This product has no color and leaves no residue (important for dark hair).  It {magically} eliminates the oily look and smells fresh and clean.  It's light and doesn't weigh-down my hair.  Sometimes I even use it on my freshly-clean hair to add texture and volume at the roots, making it easier to style.   

Plink Garbage Disposal Cleaner and Deodorizer

We accidentally found these at Bed Bath & Beyond when we were browsing wandering aimlessly through the aisles to create our wedding registry. {How else would you come across something like this if not by accident?} Anyway, it's pure genius.  It's a solution to a problem that EVERYONE faces at some point in time:  an ick-tastic smell coming from your garbage disposal. Sure, you can get rid of the foul odor by cutting up lemons or limes into small pieces and putting them down the disposal...or you could simply "Plink" your sink! It's so simple...after you've run the disposal for a minute to clear it of any gross "stuff," just drop in one of the Plink balls and turn on the disposal for 15 seconds. Poof! You now have a fresh lemony scent coming from your sink!

Wow...this week's loves are quite random.  Oh well!  I guess it'll keep you interested if I cover a gamut of products.  I've still got so many obsessions to share, so I hope you'll keep coming back to see how I spend my money!  :)  Also, I'd love for you to share your favorite products that I should try...just leave me a comment.  And don't forget to let me know what you think of my must-haves.
