My Best Purchases of 2018.

    I have always had so much fun in years past reading bloggers' posts that round up their favorite purchases from the past year! I started doing this last year, and I'm excited to share all of my best buys from 2018 with you today.

     This year's purchases include a whole wide range of things that I loved, including a few things that I ended up loving way more than I expected. Let's get to it:


     1. Sephora Beauty Amplifier Afterglow Primer: I started using this face primer a couple months ago, and I love it! I apply it each morning before putting on my foundation and other face makeup, and it provides a wonderful and long lasting base. On days that I don't wear full face makeup, it's also great just to apply this product only to add a little natural glow!

     2. Lawless Seal the Deal Loose Setting Powder: Lawless is a new 100% clean beauty line, which is now sold at Sephora! I follow the founder, Annie Lawless, on Instagram, and I loved her learning about her makeup line so much that I had to try something for myself. I've actually never steadily used a setting powder before finding this one, but now I'm hooked and have to use it everyday that I do full face makeup!

    3. Pearl earrings: This is crazy- but even though I'm a total jewelry aficionado, up until a couple months ago I never owned a pair of real pearl earrings! I had several fake pairs over the years but I'd always lose them or they'd break. There was an incredible Black Friday deal at JC Penney this year that had a pair of sterling silver pearl studs for like $10! I scooped it up, and have been wondering ever since why it took me so long to purchase this jewelry staple. 

    4. Ardell Magnetic Lash Accents in #001: One of my favorite beauty buys of the year was courtesy of my friend Niki from Nicholle Sophia! These falsies work SO much better than normal false eyelashes. Since they are magnetic, there is no glue involved which means they're much healthier for your lashes. It does take a few tries to learn to properly apply them, but once you get the hang of it you're good to go! I've worn these for as long as 12 hours, and they look great all day.

   5. IT Cosmetics Vitality Lip Flush in Je Ne Sais Quois: This has become my everyday lip gloss to wear to work! It's a beautiful pale and bright pink, and it layers perfectly over lip balm or lipstick. It smells great, and also isn't super sticky like a lot of other lip glosses! Two thumbs up for this lip product.

    6. L.L. Bean Fleece Pullover: First off- I have a confession to make. Despite the fact that I'm from Maine, home state of L.L. Bean... I am not a fan of like 95% of what they sell! (Don't hate me!) Okay- now that I've shared that disclaimer, I have to say that this fleece pullover might just be the best thing they sell! I had a store credit to use at L.L. Bean after Christmas in 2017, and I ended up getting a teal fleece pullover. This is the comfiest thing to throw on going to/from the gym, and also for casual weekends or running errands! I wear it all the time, and it's held up well. (Mine is actually a slightly different style which isn't available online anymore, but I've linked a similar one!)

    7. JustFab Tan Alle Block Heel Boots: I actually received these boots as apart of a collaboration earlier this year, but I love them! I previously owned pairs of grey and purple OTK boots, but I definitely wear these the most frequently out of all my pairs. They've held up extremely well for the price- at under $50 they're affordable as far as boots go!

    8. Tory Burch Parker Zip Continental Wallet:  My parents bought me this wallet for Christmas last year, but I didn't start using it until midway through 2018! (Does anyone else think it's so annoying to switch wallets? Haha!) I have it in a nice grey color, and it coordinates with my Tory Burch work tote, which is also in the same color. I love that this wallet has a hand strap, so it's easy to carry on its own when you don't want to bring a full purse somewhere. It's currently on-sale!

    9. Talbots Haircalf Medium Shoulder Bag: This was another item that I received for a collaboration, but I use this all the time now! It's my favorite weekend bag for fall/winter. This bag is gorgeous, and I think it really looks like it could be a designer style! This bag is also currently on sale- grab it while you can!

    10. Barefoot Dreams Cardigan: This was my favorite NSale purchase from last summer! I'd heard great things about these cardigans before, but I couldn't justify paying full price for one (they're over $100 normally). There were a few Barefoot Dreams styles that were heavily discounted in last summer's Nordstrom sale, so I finally got one. Oh my gosh- this cardigan is everything! Honestly I love it so much that I would maybe buy another at full price. It's the softest thing I've ever worn, and when I wear it at work it feels like a blanket!


    All of my favorites from this post are linked below! I'm already kind of curious what the new things are that I'll find this year and fall in love with. 😊Did you have a favorite purchase from 2019? Please share with me!!






     God Bless,

  4. I've never heard of magnetic eyelashes before, but I am officially intrigued! The worst part about normal fake eyelashes is how annoying the glue is to take off, so I would love to be able to skip that part!

  9. I got a pair of pearl earrings from the PH and I switch between those and my faux diamond studs-so classy and elegant!

  10. The Barefoot Dreams cardigan is a staple in my closet-so much so that I own 2 in the style you have, a hooded version, and the long robe! I picked them all up during various sales, so I highly recommend waiting and purchasing at those times-if they go on sale so frequently, no need to pay full price :)
