Christina's Favorite Things - Board Games

Christina's Favorite Game (



Hanging around family for multiple days can become a bore.  Most times you are house bound for days on end with different ages and generations fighting over what to watch on TV or listen to on the bluetooth speaker.  This easy to learn dice game, LeftCenterRight is a fun way to bring family of all ages together during the holidays.  This game takes less than 60 seconds to understand and start playing.  None of this reading directions or watching lengthy Youtube videos while yelling at everyone to pay attention to the directions.  Want to spice things up a bit, try doing what my family does and swap out chips for dollar bills to make every roll of the dice even more exciting in this winner-takes-all game ender.

Christina's Favorite Things - Wall Decor

Christina's Favorite Wall Décor (Z Gallerie)

Omni Leaner Mirror 


Being in Real Estate, I am always a fan of wall mirrors.  A mirror placed adjacent from windows can brighten up any room.  This leaning mirror from Z Gallerie also has a reflective frame giving it unique depth. Place one above your dining room table or above your master bedroom bed, or lean against the wall of a foyer or dressing room to add a touch of sophistication to your space. Purchase at Z Gallerie stores or online.

Christina's Favorite Things - Vacuums

Christina's Favorite Cordless Vacuum (Costco)

Dyson V10 Cord Free Stick Vacuum

I feel like I am always cleaning during the holidays.  There is nothing more annoying than having dirty socks at the end of the day. Dyson does it again with their latest version of the cordless stick vacuum.  I have two Dyson's in my home, one dedicated for the carpeted basement and the other for the two other levels with hardwood floors. I love the grab-and-go convenience of having a cordless product.  A must have for those with pets in the house. Costco routinely offers discounts on Dyson products, especially for older versions.  With ten Dyson vacuum variations now available, shop around and you should never have to pay full price. Costco and other major retailers.

Christina's Favorite Things for Remodel Projects

Christina's Favorite Remodel Product (

Stian 72" Double Sink Bathroom Vanity Set with Mirror

Does your master bath need a refresh, but you don't have it in you to do a full-on remodel? Consider swapping out your bathroom vanity with a new all-in-one vanity set from  This vanity arrives fully assembled with the base, countertop, porcelain sinks and hardware.  All you need to do is hook up the plumbing and faucets. I love the bright white color and all the storage and drawers of this model offered on Wayfair.

Christina's Favorite Things - Home Cleaning Products

Christina's Favorite at home cleaning products – AMAZON.COM


Home Armor Mold and Mildew Stain Remover

My new shower has all white grout and marble tile that I am obsessed with keeping clean. Home Armor is great for steam showers.  I spray this on the walls and floor of my shower a few times a week and watch the mold disappear before my eyes. No scrubbing or rinsing required.


Affresh Washing Machine Cleaner

Front loading washing machines have a tendency to get a mildew smell if the front door is closed after each use.  I do my best to keep my washing machine door always open in between usage.  To keep your front-loading washing machine smelling clean and fresh from odor and mildew, pop one of these Affresh tablets in once a month.


Glisten Foaming Disposal Cleaner

Think about all the junk and crap that ends up down your disposal after a big holiday dinner?  Stay ahead of the spunk and build-up. Use this once a month to keep your garbage disposal clean and free of odor-causing build up.


Downy Unstopables Fabric Softener

There is nothing better in life than sleeping in freshly washed sheets and bedding. Downy Unstoppables takes your linens to the next level with their freshness and softness. A must-have for bedding and towels.  Put a capful of these wonderful smelling pellets in with each load of wash. Your overnight guests will thank you.


Bar Keeper's Friend Stainless Steel Appliances

Stainless steel appears to still be the appliance color of choice in housing, but those fingerprints are so annoying.  With so many cooks in the kitchen over the holidays, it's almost impossible to keep those appliances spot free. Recommended to me by my cleaning service, this is a must-have in every stainless steel equipped kitchen.


Urnex Keurig Brewer Cleaner

Who knew you needed to clean your Keurig?  Well, now you do.  Give your Keurig a thorough rinsing with Urnex Cleaner K-cups once a month for better tasting beverages. Tip: use filtered or distilled water for the best results.


Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish and Conditioner

Have your wood floors and furniture taken a beating over the years? Feed-N-Wax Wood Polish & Conditioner is a miracle worker for your hardwood. Give your floors some much-needed love, especially in those high traffic areas. Great for wood furniture too!
