Shopping Finds: Amy's 3 Favorite Things Of The Week (4/9)


I have not been paid to recommend any of these products. Here are three things I'm loving this week! Let's get started...

1: Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Mask

Couple of things about this mask. First, it's not single use. It comes in powder form. You make a mask when you want it. SO much less expensive than the single serving masks that are available...everywhere.

Second, it works. I use this every couple weeks. Mixed with apple cider vinegar, it really exfoliates your skin and tightens your pours. Bonus, it's easy on your wallet.

Here's a picture from when my "How Girls Talk" cohosts (McKaila and Rachel) did the mask while we hosted the K102 morning show...

#2: A Big 'Ol Waterproof, Outdoor Chest

Confession: I am one of those crazy pillow people.

When it comes to our outdoor space, lounge chairs, dining chairs, adirondack chairs around the fire pit...there is nary a seat without a pillow...or two. I hate going outside to soggy cushions so I've been storing them in our back porch. Not a good look and taking up A TON of space.

Enter the giant, outdoor chest. I bought this thing on Wayfair. It arrived this week and was pretty easy to put together. I love the look and we can use it as a bench when we need extra seating. You know, for that big post-Covid party I'm going to throw.

It's been raining like crazy this week and all my cushions not only fit in the chest, they're perfectly dry!

Here are some links to outdoor storage options...

#3: Maple Panna Cotta With Coarse Sea Salt (AKA- the dessert I'm serving twice this weekend)

This is a winner. I first had it at Mill Valley Kitchen and fell in love. I dream about it.

When I asked Jeff what he wanted for his birthday dessert, he said, "That panna cotta!"

I was going to figure out how to make it...and I did. It's not only simple, you make it ahead of time. We have a dinner/party tonight and a dinner tomorrow, I made enough to serve it twice :)

The sea salt really does make a difference. This is what I use...

There are only seven ingredients:

*Unflavored Gelatin

*Whole Milk

*Whipping Cream

*Pure Maple Syrup

*Vanilla Extract

*Maple Extract

*Sea Salt

The recipe doesn't use sea salt, that I took from Mill Valley's version.

Here's the recipe.

Happy shopping and cooking. The weekend is here!
