Favorite Purchases of 2017

January 4, 2018

Happy Friday eve! I know this week is a short week, but it feels pretty darn long to me. Anyone else?! I’m doing everything I can to get through the week. It’s weird, because part of me is super motivated and ready to take on the new year, and the other part of me just wants to curl up on my sofa and eat cookies. The post-holiday blues are strong!

2017 was a year of great purchases! There are a few pieces that really stood out, so I wanted to share them with you. These pieces are ones I got TONS of use out of and that I’ll continue to use tons this year. So, here are my favorite purchases of 2017!


L.L. Bean Boat and Tote

I wanted a boat and tote for so long, and finally got one this year. It’s one of my most used pieces! It’s so convenient for traveling, weekend trips, and just about everything in between. I couldn’t recommend it more!

Lace Up One Piece

One pieces have never looked good on me, so I’ve always stayed away from them, until this one. If you have a bigger chest, this is the one piece for you! It’s super flattering. I wore it so much during our Hawaii trip!

Loafer Mules

These were an unexpected purchase. I originally thought backless loafers were a little too trendy for me, but I fell in love with them. They are incredibly comfortable, and I pretty much haven’t taken them off since I bought them.

L.L. Bean Pullover

I got this pullover in November and I’ve been living in it. The second I get home from work I put it on (just ask Dave or my roommate, haha. I never take this thing off). It’s so cozy and perfect for chilly days!


Ice Roller

I get headaches a lot, so this ice roller was a game changer for me. The second I get a headache, I use this and it helps immensely. It’s also amazing for hangovers and for tightening up puffy skin (like from my allergies). I can’t live without it now!

Better Than Sex Mascara

This mascara is truly the best. I’ve tried so many, and my lashes have never looked fuller than when I use this. It’s worth every penny!

Benefit Gimme Brow

I never had a go-to brow product until this one. I got it initially in my Birchbox but then continued buying it because it’s so good!

L’Oreal Mascara Primer

I also never used a mascara primer until this year, and now I can’t live without it. It makes my lashes look amazing.


Travel Steamer

Again, this is another piece I have no idea why I waited so long to buy. I use my big steamer pretty much every day, and would even lug it on trips with me even though it’s super bulky and heavy. This has made all the difference when traveling, or even just going back and forth to Dave’s on the weekend. Best $25 I’ve ever spent!!
