Favorite NEW Products....Jan - June 2014

There have been so many new products that I've tried and LOVED already this year that I couldn't wait until the end of the year to share them with you.  So, I decided to split the year in two and share with you my favorite new things during the first half of 2014.  Some of these were brand new products this year and some were just new to me.

As in my last Favorite NEW Products blog, you won't find a full review on each product but rather just a few bullet points about why I loved it.  If you'd like to see a more in-depth review on anything, please let me know!
