Can you believe its already 2022?! To go into the new year strong, I wanted to share ten of my favorite items that I couldn’t get enough of this past year. From hair products to favorite shoes, here are some items I am excited to share with y’all!
I have always preferred having a small wallet that you can throw into any bag, but I never liked having a card case where there is no space for cash or coins. This little wallet checked off all the boxes for me: a zipper section with a key chain, and the perfect size to fit in any bag. Not to mention, the pattern couldn’t be any cuter!
In my last blog I talked about Paige jeans, but since they have been one of my all time favorite pieces of clothing this year, I had to include it in this blog too! The quality and comfort of these jeans are unmatched, and I feel so confident in the fit of these jeans.
Especially during fall and winter, I religiously use hand lotion. If you are like this, you need to give the Glossier hand lotion a try. The lotion smells so fresh, but it isn’t overwhelming, and the case that it comes in is cute and compact. The bottle has also lasted me quite a while, which is surprising but a little goes a long way! This goes with me everywhere and would also be a great gift anyone can appreciate.
I love handbags, backpacks, shoulder bags, basically any purse accessory you can think of. Having a mini backpack is a necessity because it is so easy and convenient for being hands free. This Longchamp mini backpack has blown me away – the material is durable and it is the perfect size for all your necessities, plus a little more. It is super cute and is also great to travel with if you need to fold it in your suitcase.
Whenever I wash my hair, I blow dry it too, which means heat protectant is an important part of my routine. The Prep Rally heat protectant from Drybar has been my go-to hair product I can’t live without! It smells amazing (like every drybar product) and it works wonders.
If you know me, my lip balm collection is out of control, and I have tried a crazy amount of lip balm brands throughout the years. When I tried Poppy and Pout, it immediately became my all time favorite lip balm. The consistency is ridiculously smooth, the scents are amazing, and it truly nourishes your lips. It is also 100% natural! I also really appreciate their sustainable packaging! It’s no wonder that it was featured as one of “Oprah’s favorite things in 2021”!
Comfortable and stylish shoes are hard to find, but they are worth every penny once you find them! My new favorite shoes (besides my cowboy boots of course), are these Ecco’s. They are super comfortable and supportive, and they match with everything. The leather-look makes for a more formal shoe, but the sneaker style is perfect for everyday.
Alice and Olivia is one of my all time favorite brands – and I was so lucky to purchase this stylish jean jacket when it was on sale! I think a jean jacket is a staple in any closet, but I always wanted one that has a more unique style. This jean jacket is exactly what I was looking for with the rouching on the sleeves and the shoulder pads, which make the jacket more formal. This jacket has so much personality and adds a little extra to any outfit!
I have very straight eyelashes, so I am always on the hunt for a good mascara. My all time favorite mascara is Marc Jacob’s mascara, but since they don’t sell it anymore, I kept my eye out for something new to try. I stumbled upon the Bobbi Brown Mascara and am very pleased. The applicator makes it easy to apply, and you don’t need much product to make a big difference. If you are looking for a nice everyday mascara, I highly recommend this one!
Though this last item is kind of random, getting a good night’s sleep makes the world of a difference, and this item has helped me so much with that. The silk material is very gentle on your eyes, but blocks out all the light. Slip also has so many adorable designs to choose from.
