Happy New Year everyone! I truly can’t believe it is already 2024 and look forward to the year ahead. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and were able to rest and reset for the year to come. There were so many purchases I made in 2023 that I have loved throughout the year- many of which really improved my day to day life. Sharing a few of my favorites as well as follower / reader favorites below!
I have always struggled with keeping my hair healthy and found myself switching products so often without seeing a lot of results. My hairstylist recommended this Amika mask and I have loved it ever since. For me just using shampoo and conditioner wasn’t enough so using this mask a few times a month has been amazing. I find that my hair is soft, shiny, and the mask smells SO good.
This was one of my top selling items this year and I can totally see why! I own it in both striped and red. Lady Jackets have definitely been on trend this year, but I find this style to be such a classic. It comes in a variety of other colors too and can be styled so many ways.
The Hatch is one of my favorite things that I own. Yes- a little dramatic for an alarm clock but it has made such a difference in my life since I’ve had it. I’ve been using it everyday for years and love how much it’s helped my routine. It not only offers an alarm clock, but also helps you create and evening routine. I love to use the red light with a meditation followed by white noise for the first 30 minutes when I fall asleep. If you feel like you need a change in your routine or a great way to wind down at the end of the day I highly recommend the Hatch. Multiple of my friends and family have one now and they all love it!
I’ve always been the most comfortable wearing my hair down since I could never perfect a ponytail. The pony popper is such a great invention and makes for a perfect pony every time. I have thinner hair so it adds that perfect pop and helps maintain volume throughout the day.
I still can’t believe I had the chance to design so many fun clip-on earrings with Lisi Lerch and still love our Belle Double Pearls years later. They come in two sizes that I switch between for day-to-day wear as well as formal occasions. They’ve also been worn by some of my favorite gals like Blair Eadie and Olivia Stallings!
Nipple covers and sticky bras have always been a challenge for me (and I feel like most people have the same struggle). I’ve always hated wasting $20+ to wear an uncomfortable sticky bra for one night just to throw it away after it stops sticking. I finally found something that works – Cakes! They adhere using your body heat and can be worn over and over. I love that you can wash and rewear so that they are cost effective and sustainable. I wore these so often over the summer and will never buy another brand of nipple covers! They also come in a variety of sizes and colors.
Okay, hear me out on this one… everyone needs a car garbage. I ordered one on Amazon and it has been such game changer in keeping my car neat. During the day I’m often running around from the gym, to school, shooting photos, etc. so having a garbage in my car keeps things tidy. Such an affordable thing that I never want to live without!
My charm necklace is so special to me and something I wear multiple times a week! I picked it up when I was in Charleston for spring break and was able to pick out so many meaningful charms. If you are looking for something special to get yourself or gift to someone else, this is such a wonderful piece. I just bought my mom a necklace from them for Christmas and she absolutely loves it!
Sunglasses are always a fun way to accessorize an outfit and I wore these Amazon sunnies SO often in 2023. They are affordable and come in so many colors- and you gals all loved them! I bought the blue and tortoise pairs and love not having to worry about them getting damaged or lost. They are such a great buy and something I will definitely be wearing in 2024 too!
