Today will be my last blog post for the year! After seeing so many bloggers take a break from this time until the new year last year I decided to give myself one this year. I will still be on Instagram and Twitter with random updates so make sure to hang there! Before I sign off to spend the holidays with my family I wanted to share my 10 best purchases of 2018! I will note a few of these were either gifts or things sent to me but things I would absolutely buy myself!

10 Best Purchases In 2018

Chappywrap Blanket: Chappywrap sent me two of these blankets and you guys I am obsessed. I don’t think I can ever use a different blanket. I have one on our couch and one on our bed. I carry one with me to the playroom every day and even take one on trips if we are driving. You need this blanket in your life.

Origins Face Wash: I bought this when I was needing a new face wash and I don’t think a face wash has ever made my skin feel so clean.

Drunk Elephant Moisturizer: This I got a sample of using some Sephora points and ended up buying the big one because I noticed such a huge difference in my skin!

Glossier Mascara: I had heard so much about this that I had to try it for myself and I have turned so many friends onto it! It’s the best mascara EVER! The price is also SO GOOD!

Eberjey pajama pants: I snagged these when they were on major sale (still are) and they are the softest pants EVER! I wish I had them during postpartum!

Adidas sneakers: These were another sale purchase and I get complimented all the time! The head of Liam’s school even bought them after she saw me wearing them!

Sweaty Betty Pullover: I got this during the Nordstrom anniversary sale and then got the other color! They are insanely soft, perfect under a vest and cover your butt!

Karen Walker Dupe Sunnies: $10 for sunglasses that look just like the $250 pair? Yes please! I have them in black and brown!

Outdoor Voices Sports Bra: Oh my goodness y’all I love Outdoor Voices everything but especially their crop bras! They are so sweet to gift me a few and I love them so much!

Airpods: These I got around my birthday and I never thought I would love them as much as I do. I use them every single day and I love that I so rarely have to charge them!

What is one of your best purchases in 2018?

I hope you all have a great rest of your year and be sure to come back January 2nd!

      I don’t think you can ever have enough blankets! I have a stack right here on the back of my couch and will snuggle under every single one of them. What is that you like so much about this one? I really want a weighted blanket!

      Okay so I’m trying out that mascara based on your rec. I keep trying to find a new mascara but always go back to the good ol’ pink and green Maybelline kind!

      I’ve made a note of a couple of items on your list and will take a closer look. My best purchase this year would have to be my new car. After totalling my last car in a nasty accident in May, I am grateful for life and a much better car.

      Thanks for sharing your list. Most of my purchases were plane tickets for travel. I hope to travel more this coming year!

      I love your list. I was able to get the Glossier Masscara too and it’s the best ever. I also got it for a pretty good price and I am just so happy.

      I would also love to get some airpods. 🙂
