I feel like I get so many recommendations from other influencers and even my friends. I love trying new things and sharing them with you guys and I always get great feedback when I do. I haven’t shopped a ton lately but I have a few recent favorite purchases I thought would be fun to share!

8 Recent Favorite Purchases

Ankle Weights: I have been doing a lot of Pure Barre at home since March and I really wanted to be challenged a little more so I bought these ankle weights on Amazon to do some of the workouts with and then just other workouts I found online. I am really loving them and they were pretty budget-friendly. Plus they had thousands of amazing reviews.

Belt Bag: I really didn’t want to like this trend. I fought it for a while. Then I decided that for my lifestyle with 2 kids and really not needing much when I run quick errands it may be a good thing to try. I didn’t want to spend a ton of money on a trend I didn’t know if I would like. I was recommended this belt bag from Lululemon and LOVE IT! I got this blush color and honestly, I want it in black too (if it comes back in stock). I just carry a small card wallet, keys, Airpods, phone, and lip balm. I could fit more than that but I am trying to only carry minimal items! Did I mention it’s under $40???

Target Hoodie: One of my best friends had this hoodie on and when I saw it I thought it had to be expensive but it was SO price-friendly from Target. I absolutely love it and it’s perfect to throw on in the morning when it’s cooler or wear around the house. It comes in 3 colors and it’s under $20!

Target Dress: Another Target win! I don’t have many fall dresses and I knew I wanted something I could throw on easily but still look put together. I saw someone on Instagram wearing this dress in green and fell in love with it! I ended up getting the navy. It is SO CUTE and flattering and under $35.

Cute headbands: One of my good friends, Kayla who has the CUTEST style and a new blog here, was talking about these headbands and I have been dying to find some that would stay on during workouts. These are extremely price-friendly and so cute! $12 each!

Monogram pouch: Before I got the belt bag I wanted something small I could throw my cards, keys, Airpods, and phone in if I was running somewhere quick or something I could easily throw in the diaper bag when I didn’t need much else. I got this one from Mark and Graham and I really love it! I can’t believe I haven’t gotten more of their items in the past. I really want to get some more.

Tie-Dye scrunchie: This is probably the biggest splurge on the list ONLY because it’s a scrunchie and I admit spending this much on a scrunchie was kind of silly, BUT I had a store credit and that’s how I am justifying it.

ILIA beauty gel eyeliner: If you read my ILIA Beauty review you would know they are one of my favorite clean makeup brands! I also mentioned in that post I wanted to try their eyeliner as it was the only makeup item I had not switched to clean beauty. I absolutely love it. It’s pretty fool-proof and goes on great. Highly recommend.

      I haven’t gotten one of the belt bags yet, but I have a phone case that has room for my DL, credit cards, a few business cards, and of course it holds my phone, too. It’s so nice having one small thing to grab when you have your hands full with the kids! PS I also tend to splurge when I have store credit 🙂

      Wow! This is a great list. Just like you I also tried to avoid the “belt bag” trend however my sister gave me one. I guess there is no escaping to this but yes, I love using it now.

      Wow, I am loving all of your recent purchases! I need to give the belt bag a try, it sounds like something that is very useful!!

      I love when I end up finding new favorite items thanks to the bloggers that I follow. It seems like you got your hands on some great goodies over the past couple of months. And you were so kind to shoutout the people who suggested them to you! 🙂
