January Top Sellers

Hi friend! I’m so happy it’s Friday!  And ironically, I just finished this SLOW book.  Brooke McAlary does a fantastic job providing an introduction to the foundations of slow living – intention, simplicity, mindfulness, balance, connection – and examples of tiny, imperfect actions to encourage you to begin the journey.  I devoured the book in three days!

This weekend will be a good one- Jordan’s basketball game, church, the bookfair and watching the football games on TV.  What are you up to?

Olive Branches these looks so expensive, but they aren’t!  A set of three is enough for a full look in a vessel with a small neck.  They’re perfect year round and you can bend the stems to get the placement you want.  I have them in between my living room and breakfast room.

Bohemian Rug was such a great find and such a great price. I love the cozy feel under my feet and the neutral color way.

Cleaning Brushes I like the ergonomic handles on these durable brushes.  They come in a set of three and each one has a different shape, perfect for several areas throughout the house.

Handheld Vac This baby is lightweight and has incredible suction power.  I use it often for those hard to reach places and it picks ups crumbs and little bits in a jiffy! It also has a handy brush attachment at the end so you don’t have to store extra pieces.

Microwave cover One of my favorite finds on Amazon that I use multiple times a day!  It prevents all those splatters and helps keep your microwave clean!

Home Edit Drawer Organizers These drawer organizers mix and match to accommodate all the little things.  An organized drawer is a happy drawer!

Fabric Storage Boxes are not only great for storing items and keeping your space tidy, but they are SO CUTE!


Dotted Dishes They look like Kate Spade with their spotted detail and gold rim, but they’re actually from Walmart.  We used them for special dinners like Thanksgiving and Christmas, but they’re easy enough for everyday!  They’re both microwave and dishwasher safe!

Coffee Warmer comes in so handy because it takes me awhile to drink my coffee.  I like to savor it and this warmer keeps your drink warm and turns on automatically when you place your cup on it.  When you lift your cup off, it turns off- so you never have to worry about turning it off after you’re done using it.  I also like the sleek design.  I’m not embarrassed to admit I have three in my home: on my desk, nightstand and side table in the living room.  I also use it in the evening for hot tea or cocoa.

Linen Tray This guy was in high demand! It kept selling out, but I just ordered it yesterday!  I want to use it on the end table in my living room.

No Bend Hair Clips These handy little clips keep your hair out of your face while applying makeup, but also tame your hair without any leaving and crease or bend in your hair!  You can also use them to train your bangs by clipping them to where you want your hair to lay.  I love them for taming my cowlicks especially.  After I’ve done my hair, I place on each of my cowlicks to help make them lay flat.  Best $6 I’ve ever spent!

Hanalei Lip Balm I’ve been using this lip treatment for YEARS and still love it, even though I’ve tried others.  It goes on really easily with the squeeze tube and slanted lip base.  It has a slight hint of mild scent, and my lips feel so good when I put it on.  I pretty much apply it right away after brushing my teeth.  9,159 | 4.5 star reviews

lip scrub

Vitamin C Serum I use a Vitamin C Serum every.single.morning and my skin looks brighter and more youthful.  I use this one, but the TruSkin Vitamin C with Vitamin E and hyaluronic acid has over 93,752 positive reviews.  It boosts brightness, fades dark spots, softens fine lines and wrinkles and all skin types can benefit from it.

Makeup Brushes Brushes make all the difference when applying makeup.  This pretty rose gold makeup brush set includes 5 big kabuki brushes and 9 precise eye brushes.  89,988 | 4.5 star reviews

Mascara Primer my drugstore fave and I also got it at our Favorite Thing party  31,710 | 4.5 star reviews

Lancome Eye Makeup Remover You gently shake the bottle to activate the liquid, then there’s a little hole at the top that I wet with a Qtip, then swipe over both eyes.  I use the dry side of the Qtip to go over each eye and “dry it”.  This eye makeup remover removes every trace of makeup and I don’t wake up looking like a raccoon.

Silk Scrunchies Comparable to the Silk Hair Scrunchies at Anthropologie, these keep my hair up while I’m working out, or just around the house.  They don’t pull or break my hair and they’re the perfect size.  I also love the colors!

Cuticle Oil  I use this cuticle oil religiously and it helps prevent hangnails and keeps my cuticles moisturized.  It absorbs fast and doesn’t leave my hands all oily.   97,255 | 4.5 star reviews

Natural Loofah  if you’re looking for and alternative to the plastic pouf, this one is great!

Curel Lotion can’t live without this, it’s in every drawer of my house, in my purse and in my car!

Striped Sweater from my latest Target haul was a great find. I love the neutral color way and I’m a huge fan on stripes!

Long Sleeve Knit Dress will take you straight into Spring. I love the cinchable waist and the ease of dressing this one up or down. Was $59, now $35

Booties A great option for a lower heeled bootie with perforations and under $30!

Packable Coat made the list and I know why, under $20! 

Tory Burch Card Case It comes with a wristlet strap so you can easily put all the cards in one place and throw it into your bag or carry alone.

One of my pretty/functional go-to bras and it’s on major sale. Was $70, Now $28

Mother Jeans are one of my favorite brands of jeans and the dark wash on these paired with the raw hem are too cute!  Was $228, now $136

Boyfriend Sweatpants The three C’s-  Cute, Comfy, and Casual. Was $49, now $29

Hipster Undies Such a great no show and comfortable pair of undies- great for workouts too!

Puff Sleeve Blouse how charming is this top from Nordstrom?!  It’s a delightfully easy to wear blouse with puffed sleeves and a non body-conscious fit.

Amazon Fashion



Puff Vest definitely a wardrobe staple and comes in every color of the rainbow

Polka Dot Sweater can’t go wrong with Cable Stitch brand. They make stylish, quality pieces sold exclusively on Amazon.

Core 10 Socks These are the only socks I wear anymore and I was bummed when they sold out.  But good news, they’re back! Only $15 for a pack of 6!

Dolman Sleeve Boatneck top is a great go-to top for running around town. You can wear this with leggings and it comes in several different color options.

XOXO Shirt simple and sweet for Valentine’s Day.

Beach Cover Up I was surprised to see this as a top seller in January, but maybe you have warmer days and vacations on the brain!

Homebody Sweatshirt Any other homebody’s in the house?!

Vintage Tassel Crossbody Bag looks like Madewell (without the price!) with a worn in look and braided/grommet detail.

Quilted Crossbody is a STEAL and looks high end.  I like it so much I got it in both the ‘beige medium’ and black.

Woven Belts – your #1 favorite thing of the year! Or actually, a ‘set of belts’ because you got four different styles with your order. They’re stretchy, versatile, and easy to wear.

It normally feels like January goes so slow, but I feel like this month is flying by!  I rounded up the most popular posts of the month in case you missed any!

30 Things I Used Everyday in 2021

I started thinking about my daily routines and habits, which led me down a rabbit trail of things I use every single day.  It’s a pretty big and specific list and I wonder if you have a similar list.



The Top 21 Posts of 2021

It’s always interesting to me to see what kinds of posts resonated most with you and were the most popular of the year.  I looked at my Google Analytics to see what the most viewed posts of 21 were and came up with this list!  I put them in order of most popular, but there’s something from every category- fashion, fitness, and home decor.

2021 Home Decor Updates & Plans for 2022

Here you can see all the home decor updates I made last year- everything from a bathroom update, new guest room, James’ bedroom makeover, a much needed new fence outside, patio refresh, office update, lighting updates, new rugs, and more!  In the post, I forgot to mention the new appliances I upgraded.  My refrigerator, washer and dryer all got replaced after over a decade!

I’m also sharing the ideas and decor plans I have for 2022!

New Year Fitness Challenge

I’m over 30 days into my new fitness challenge and I’m definitely noticing results!  My jeans aren’t bursting at the seams and I do have more energy again.  But, like I mentioned in this post, my FAVORITE part of the challenge is the daily reading. I’ve made it part of my morning routine and already finished three books!

  1. It’s hilarious that you recommended a SLOW book and then bragged that you finished it in three days. Ha! I would have done the same.
