My favorite things this year are …
Fossil Tote Bag – My Fossil brand leather tote bag has been with me through thick and thin. It has traveled all over the world with me and has been a fabulous partner in crime for 10+ years. Yep. You read that right. I’ve been carrying this leather tote around for a decade plus. It’s finally time to replace it, and I’m getting this one because I know it will hold up forever!
Beautycounter Twig Lip Sheer – This year I was introduced to a new-to-me cosmetic company. I fell in love with their mission to tackle the safety of the body care and beauty industry and to get safer products in the hands of everyone. There are so many unsafe chemicals and toxins in our beauty care products, so I loved finding a company whose products met my safety standards AND performance standards. This lip sheer is my daily go-to lip color! I love it!
Beautycounter Face collection – I started using Beautycounter for the makeup, which I love, but I did not expect to fall in love with their skin care line. I LOVE the Face collection. The Nourishing Cream Exfoliator is my favorite and leaves my skin feeling so soft! If you’re interested in learning more about why I switched to Beautycounter, watch THIS.
Dove Dry Shampoo – Ever since becoming a mom, I’ve been on a quest to stretch out the hair washings. I’ve pretty much decided that I can go 2-3 days without washing my hair and this stuff makes it all happen! A mama’s best friend!
Monogrammed Mug – I have wanted a monogrammed mug from Anthropologie for forever and I finally bought myself one this year. It’s fun to drink my morning coffee out of this cutie!
Caitlyn Wilson Burnside Buffalo Check Pillow Covers – I’ve been drooling over this fabric for a while now and finally bit the bullet and got my hands on a couple of pillow covers. They are so pretty in person! Unfortunately I accidentally ordered the wrong size, but I’m exchanging them and hope to get them in time for my Christmas home tour. I can’t wait!
Columbia Fleece Jacket in Oceanic – This jacket was recently on sale at a local store, so I snatched up 1 in my size. The jacket is so soft and warm and the color … well, it’s my favorite! 😉
BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Dryer – I purchased this baby back in January because I found it on another blogger’s favorite things post last Christmas. TOTALLY awesome hair dryer. It dries my hair so much faster and it leaves my hair softer than ever before. It definitely lived up to the hype of being the best blow dryer ever!
Tree Mug – This tree mug has been one of my favorite purchases all year. I love having the mugs out so that guests can help themselves to the coffee and don’t feel weird rummaging through my cabinets looking for coffee mugs.
Cute Elastic Hair Ties – My girls and I love to throw our hair back in these cute sparkly and pretty hair ties!
Because I love you, and I thought it would be fun, I’m giving away two of my favorite home decorating books! The Inspired Room by Melissa Michaels (click here) and The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith (click here) One winner will get these two fabulous books from fellow home decor bloggers. You will love them!
