My Favorite Things
Kiehl’s Buttermask: This was an accidental purchase made in an airport during an emergency and it made me a little sick to spend over $20 on chapstick. It's a game changer, especially for cold Wisconsin winters! It doesn't even compare to anything else out there.
Athleta Pranayama Wrap: Every time another color comes out, I convince myself that I need it! This is such a great piece. I can dress it up or down or spend all day at home in lounge pants with it. ... and it's a really great price!
Yeti Rambler: This is the only way I drink water. It's always filled to the brim and it goes with me everywhere.
Johnny Was Sherpa Blanket: Definitely a splurge but this is one of my favorite blankets for snuggling on the couch.
Three Fat Guys Wine: Our favorite wine club!
Watermelon Glow: Before I got my tattoo, I wanted to make sure that I had the best skin in that area. I always had those little bumpies on the back of my arms and this lotion virtually eliminated them. I loved it so much, it made it's way into my mom's Christmas stocking this year!
Night Moisturizer: Estee Lauder Revitalizing Supreme is one of the best night moisturizers that I've used. My skin needs something thicker in the winter and for when I travel and this delivers. It's a little heavy for day use but perfect to slather on before bed.
Black Leggings: If this company had an ambassador program, I would be at the front of the line to sign up. These are by far, the best black leggings I have ever owned outside of Lulu. The are wonderfully priced, feel like butter, are thin and comfortable but not see through.
Drama Queens Podcast: If you loved One Tree Hill or want to watch the series from the start, this is sooooo good. Joy, Hilarie and Sophia (Hailey, Peyton and Brooke) watch one episode a week and then dissect it and go into all of the behind the scene juicy-ness. It's great!
Books: I read a LOT. My favorite specific books this year outside of anything by K.L Slater, Jodi Picoult, Colleen Hoover, Kiersten Modglin, Lucinda Berry, Ana Mora, Victoria Jenkins, Elin Hilderbrand, Ruth Ware, Lisa Jewel, were:
Four Winds by Kristin Hannah
When We Believed in Mermaids by Barbara O'Neal
Three Sisters by Heather Morris
VS Lounge Pants: These are my favorite lounge pants ... so good I bought 3 pairs (the tie waist).
Moxie Spices: Purchased on a whim at a boutique store outside of San Antonio, this continually is reordered throughout the year at our house. We use this on everything!
Apple Watch Band: The solo loop watch band is the only way I can wear my apple watch all day every day. I do so much computer work with Twig, it's the only band that allows me to work comfortably and not scratch the crap out of my laptop!
Air Fly: If you travel frequently like me, you know what a pain in the ass it is to remember to bring regular headphones on the plane to be able to plug in and use the flight's tv. This little device allows you to use your airpods or wireless air buds to connect to in-flight entertainment. Literally every time I fly someone asks me what this is and ends up buying it right away!
The Best Shower Cap: This is hands down the best shower cap I've ever owned. Nothing gets through this baby and I've had mine for over 5 years.
Cheers to a wonderful 2022!
