I was recently asked what my favorite purchase was from last year, and while I couldn’t narrow it down to just one item, it wasn’t hard for me to pick my favorites. These are all items I use on a daily basis and/or are closet favorites I am so glad I have! No particular order 😉
Dyson Cordless Vacuum – This is a daily use item! We had one for years, but recently upgraded to this model. Upgrading has made all the difference – the battery lasts soooo long. I use it to clean our wood floors and do quick vacuums of the carpet on the stairs. I am amazed at how well it does on carpet. It is also a handheld, so I use it daily for those needs.
Jane Winchester Necklace – Gold pendants are everywhere right now. I have fallen in love with my pendants from Jane Winchester. What sets these apart is they all have a special meaning behind them – I have the original size LOVE and the small FOREVER pendant I just got. I put them on the 16″ chain. They are perfect for layering!
Free People Pullover – this pullover is perfect for throwing over leggings or knotting and tucking in. I love how lightweight it is and wear it all the time. I have it in cream – contemplating the black!
Treasure & Bond Duster – You guys, this has been restocked!!!! I got this for our trip last year and it was THE most asked about item I wore. It is great as a cover up as well as a cute kimono with denim and a tank. It now comes in blush!
Tory Burch Slide – Another item I got for our trip that I continued to wear throughout the year. These cute slides replaced my usual flip flops. They are super comfy and give an updated look to your casual, everyday look. They come in several colors now!
Simplified Planner – I have professed my love for this planner before. In addition to using our shared calendar on our phones, I use this to track our meal planning, to-do lists, and little reminders that do not need to go in the main calendar. It has pockets that I will store invitations or cards in – it keeps me so much more on top of things!
Herb Scissors – Yes, these exist!! I can’t believe I hadn’t gotten these before. Chopping cilantro, basil, or whichever herb you are working with can get stuck to your hands and smell, and I never get them chopped small enough. These herb scissors are perfect! And I used them to cut a fringe in one of the kids’ crafts, so extra points for dual use 😉
Ugg Boots – Another item I use/wear daily. These boots are so easy to slip on. I love the updated look and the ability to fold over the front and back so you can see the fur. They are perfect for wearing with my activewear!
My Bedroom – I don’t know that the bench is my favorite item from my room – the bench, nightstands, and mirror may all tie! Our bedroom may top the list as my favorite purchase for 2018. The team with The Studio by JH and JH interior design did such an amazing job!! Lots of questions on where to find the items – they were all sourced from The Studio by JH!
I would love to hear what your favorite purchases have been!!
