 my all time favorite purchases from 2019!


I always love to see the products and purchases that others love the most. If you’re the same way, today’s post is for you!

Of all the purchases I’ve made (for myself) this year, these are my absolute favorites.

The end of the year (decade!) seems like the perfect time to talk about these picks. Especially since some of these would also make great holiday gifts.



all time favorite purchases Gold Ball Beaded Bracelets



Le Specs Air Heart Sunglasses

I’m the first to admit, I have far too many sunglasses.

However, the Le Specs line is priced reasonably, so I couldn’t resist just adding one more pair to my collection.

These look (and feel) so much more expensive than they actually are. Apparently, even Meghan Markle loves these glam looking glasses;)


Kelly Wearstler Table Lamp

Maybe a lamp is a strange thing to include in a favorite products round up….But, I’ve had my eye on this beautiful light for SO long!

I finally purchased a pair of them for our Rhode Island beach house and I’m so glad I did.

They’re gorgeous in person. In addition, they look perfect on our nightstands in the master bedroom and add a lot of style to the space.


Gold Ball Beaded Bracelet  

I received one of these pretty gold bracelets as birthday gift a couple of years ago.

I came across this jewelry vendor on Etsy this year (while searching for something entirely unrelated, of course!) and ordered a few more.

They look so great in a short stack. I also gave a few as gifts.


Tula Cooling Eye Balm

Sometimes, when I can’t sleep, I find myself getting sucked into the Youtube world of Beauty Vloggers! It’s a fascinating place.

Anyway…I’m pretty sure that’s how this “cool” product ended up on my radar.

So I use it every morning on my eyes. Either alone, or under my make up.

I think I have pretty sensitive skin and this doesn’t irritate my eyes or skin at all.


Charlotte Tilbury  Lip Gloss in Ibiza Nights

During a visit to Bergdorf”s this year, I asked the Charlotte Tilbury make up rep to recommend a flattering lip gloss.

He turned me on to Ibiza Nights and I love it!

In fact, I just ordered another one, because I want to keep one in my bag and one on my vanity.


Hallmark Assorted Greeting Card Box

Until I smartened up this year and ordered this box of cards, I was always running to Walgreens at the very last minute for a card.

Mostly these were for kid’s birthday parties, but, this box covers it all! Thank you cards, Weddings, etc.

Love the convenience of this!


Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow Face Primer

Just like the lip gloss above, I think I first found this face primer at the makeup counter in New York City.

I wear mine blended in (as in before it goes on my face) with my Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer.

It adds a little brightness for lack of a better word, to the whole application and look.

It’s odorless, goes on so easy and I’m completely hooked.


Eucalyptus Oil Shower Spray

I’m fully obsessed with this little product.

Absolutely love spraying this several times in the shower every night.

I find the smell SO clean, soothing and spa like…


Serena and Lily Sonoma Bath Robe  

Speaking of a spa…I keep the spa vibes going with this deliciously soft robe. LOVE it.


Slip Silk Pillow Case

This is my all time all star favorite thing ever.

I’ve now bought SO many of these pillowcases.

My daughters use them too.

I even travel with one, that’s how much I love it.

Perfect for extending a blow dry and keeping your skin “sleep crease” free!


Havaianas Flip Flops 

All the comfort of a Havaianas but with the sleeker fashion look of TKEES.

If I lived in a warmer climate, I’d wear these all year long.


The “Amazon” Coat 

Last year I caved in and bought the famous Amazon coat even though almost every mom in the tri-state area was wearing it!

It lives up to the hype in both warmth and comfort.

Even though half my little town has one now, I still get stopped and complimented every time I wear it!

It’s gotten to the point where my son now rolls his eyes when I wear it out with him, because he’s so sick of hearing about it!


Veronica Beard Scuba Blazer

I’ve talked about this flattering jacket before…it’s by far my favorite fashion purchase of the year.

So much so, I’m considering getting it in white for spring…


J.Crew Camo Rain Jacket 

Lastly, this camo rain jacket from J.Crew made the cut.

A few years ago, I saw a similar one in Paris while on a quick trip there with my friend.

And I didn’t get it! And, I never stopped thinking about it.

So of course I had to snap this light weight rain jacket up!

Perfect for warmer weather rainy days.
