Best Purchases of 2018 (Beauty, Clothing and Accessories)


Happy Wednesday! Today I am recapping my best purchases of 2018! I love putting together these posts every year because I really access the true items that I used continuously thru the year and LOVE! Let’s get started!

Best Of Beauty

Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil– Oh my word this oil is life changing. I was very intrigued with Drunk Elephant products after learning more about clean beauty. This oil deeply moisturizes your skin making it feel rejuvenated and will bring our your inner glow. I have been thru about 4 bottles of this oil and use it about 3-4x a week. Highly recommend!

Tula Dual-Phase Skin Reviving Treatment Pads– I started using these pads early 2018 and became instantly obsessed. I love how soft and clean my skin feels after using these. The exfoliator is gentle and Tula calls these an “instant facial.” I would have to agree.

Marc Jacobs Coconut Bronzer– A reader recommended this bronzer and I feel in love with the natural glow it gives yours skin. The amazing coconut smell is an added bonus too!

Marc Jacobs Hydrating Lip Gloss– I picked up this lipgloss when I grabbed the bronzer and immediately ordered two more shades. I love how hydrating it is and it goes on incredibly smooth. The packaging is also really pretty too!

T3 Curling Iron– A favorite for the last couple of years and STILL my favorite. This curling iron makes your curls last for days! It does get pretty hot, so be careful! I use the 1″ barrel 90% of the time and the 1.5″ when I want bigger curls.

Charlotte Tilbury Hollywood Highlighter Wand– I have tried SO MANY highlighters and have found the cream base ones to last much longer on me than powder formulas. This wand gives you the most gorgeous natural glow and I love that it is buildable too!

L’Occitane Almond Shower Oil– A couple years ago at a Reward Style conference, the L’Occitane team told me about using this oil to shave your legs with. LIFE CHANGING! I will never buy shaving cream again!

Wet Brush Pro Epic– My hair stylist told me about this brush about a year ago and it has been both my and Olivia’s go to brush. I like it MUCH better than the classic wet brush.

Best Eyeshadow Palette– I am a huge fan of Anastasia Brown products, but in 2018 I fell in love with her eyeshadows too! They blend beautifully and  a little goes a LONG way.

St. Tropez- Self Tanner– This has been my go to as well for over a year and still a favorite! I use this in-between spray tans!

Best of Clothing/Accessories

Senreve Maestra Bag– Another repeat favorites! I have carried this on every single trip for over a year. I carry by computer and camera equipment int it and i know that it is safe and secure. The bag itself is Very sturdy and can be carried as a backpack too.

Gibson Cozy Joggers– I am constantly reaching for these amazingly cozy joggers. They are perfect to throw on and go for carline and to run errands. Adore these!

See by Chloe Wedges– I actually purchased THIS scallop pair in 2018, but love the new solid pair that came out this year even more. I wore these OUT this past spring/summer. I love how lightweight they are and they elongate your legs too!

Free People Beanies– A favorites post would not be complete without these cute beanies! I have just about every color of the rainbow and wore them out! I always get compliments every time I wear them out.

Articles of Society Jeans– While AG jeans are near and dear to my heart, I wore this pair of Articles of Society Jeans on repeat all year long!  I have three pairs now and love them!

Steven Shoes– I purchased both the greece slides and Eryk wedges in 2018 and wore them both SO much! The new wedge pair is on my 2019 spring wish list!

Lululemon Cloudscape Jacket– This amazing coat has hands down been my most worn coat out and about in the Fall/Winter of 2018. I find myself not wanting to take it off. SO good!

DIFF Sunglasses– I have been searching for a pair of sunglasses under $100 for a couple of years that I love and finally found them! I have been reaching for these much more often than my designer pairs.



Everything But Bagel Seasoning– I mean no words needed here right? (PS Wal-Mart has a version too!)

Pure Beech Sheets– We have been buying these for over 10 years and I have YET to tell you guys about them! Shame on me! They are glorious, just read the reviews!

Yeti Coffee Cup– This was a late 2018 purchase but I do not even remember what coffee drinking was before this haha. Dramatic I know, but it is the BEST!
