You guys, I have been dying over these types of posts and figured I’d throw my hat in the ring and share my favorite buys from 2018! I’ll include all of my personal favorites, from clothing to beauty to life changing Amazon buys (thank you, Prime!) Let’s get started!
Barefoot Dreams Blanket: So I’m going to start off cheating here for a second, but for good reason! I bought this Barefoot Dreams throw the first week of 2019 with a gift card I got for Christmas and IT HAS BEEN LIFE CHANGING. Now this is an expensive blanket and I wouldn’t have been able to justify buying it without the gift card, but it is so good. If I am at home, this blanket is draped over me. It is the perfect weight, the perfect size, and feels just like their cardigans. I have it in baby pink and I will most likely grab another one this year. If you have been contemplating buying one, do it.
Also, the Barefoot dreams cardigan that started it all. It is a longer fit, with pockets, and feels like you are wearing a hug. I have it in the color Almond, which is a beautiful cream color. I bought mine from QVC after watching a presentation and have never regretted it.
Colleen Rothschild Extreme Recovery Cream and Cleansing Balm: I saw a bunch of bloggers I trust write about these products and decided to grab them myself this past summer. I am obsessed. The cleansing balm is the best for getting off eye makeup (I double cleanse with Purity), and the face cream is perfect for dry Winter skin. I recently ran out of my Recovery Cream and had to wait a month before ordering more and my skin was so sad. Both of these products have clean scents (I get irritated by anything strongly scented.)
Target triple buckled western boots: I kid you not, I bought these in October and wear them almost every day. They are the perfect camel color, and I love the shading/distressing on the toes. (See in picture above!) For under $40 they are a bargain and are amazing quality. I will wear these year round, they look equally good with skinny jeans and a sweater + dresses.
Flipbelt: I bought this when I was training and running in my first 1/2 marathon and it was life changing! I store my iPhone in there and my energy chews, and a car key of I need to. It fits snug and does not move around as I run.
Aerie Play Pocket + Cuff Leggings: I love these leggings! I have them in black and gray and definitely wear the black the most. They are so comfortable and a staple of my loungewear capsule. I sized up to a medium. The leggings I wear outside of the house and 1 million percent recommend if you don’t have them, are my Zella high waisted leggings. I have had them for two years and they look like new.
Abercrombie off the shoulder thermal: It’s actually embarrassing how much I wear this top! I have it in cream and mauve and they are both equally amazing.
Boiron Cold + Flu Tablets: these are part of my anti-sickness arsenal (along with colloidal silver!) and are a key factor in my whole family not being sick for more than 1 day this entire year. They stop sickness in its tracks, along with the other strategies I wrote about HERE.
Stainless Steel Straws: I try to get myself and my family to drink a ton of water each day, and having straws helps makes this more fun! I bought these this past summer and have used them every single day since. I have the silicone tops that go on them to guard your teeth, and love them! They are reusable and washable and just the best.
Body Love by Kelly LeVeque: a great book that gave me the recipe for the smoothie I drink each day, as well as a ton of other great recipes. If you like to live a healthier lifestyle, you’ll love this book.
Steve Madden jeweled sandals: Chances are, if you saw me this past Summer I was wearing these sandals. They look good with almost every single outfit. They are also on sale!
Caviar Anti Aging Replenishing Moisture Shampoo + conditioner: I have had this in my shower for almost a year now and never get tired of the results. It makes your hair silky soft and moisturized, even if you have damaged it in the past with heat and bleach (#sideeye to MYSELF.) I buy the big pump bottles and it lasts forever.
Free People Long Sleeve Thermal: Another top I wear multiple times a week! It is a great tunic length and can be worn with jeans or leggings. I have it in the gray and will probably purchase another color.
Free People Ottoman sweater: This sweater is so freakin’ good! I stalked it on sale and got it in a size small and the color cream and know I will wear it for years. It is amazing quality.
That’s it! I’m sure a million more favorites will comes to mind after I publish this, but these are items that made my life a little bit happier in 2018, and continue to do that in 2019!
