From SKIMS to pet owner must-haves, it’s time to round up my 20 favorite purchases of 2022! These products made me feel good, look good and make my life easier this year and I hope if you bought them this year from me too, you feel the same!
My 20 Favorite Purchases Of 2022:
I call this the magic dress because it truly makes you look incredible. I own it in black in both the tank style and the long sleeved style. Easily can be dressed up or dressed down, it’s become a quick staple in my wardrobe.
2. SKIMS Underwear and Bralette
As you can see, 2022 was the year I became obsessed with SKIMS and once you try their underwear, you won’t go back. I’ve replaced pretty much all my underwear, bras and now socks with SKIMS thanks to their incredible quality, great prices and extra soft material.
You can’t beat J. Crew’s classic cashmere sweaters and I’m so happy they brought back their cable-knit style this year. A true classic you’ll have in your wardrobe for years to come.
This was my big splurge item of the year but wanted to share how much I love this bag! I picked it up when shopping in Barcelona this summer has a treat to myself for a great work year and I’ve gotten such good use out of it. I love the classic style and also I saved great money on it when shopping in Europe so highly recommend if you’re planning a Europe trip this year!
I got these pants for my trip to London this past spring and they became my go-to all year. They’re super flattering, come in a ton of colors and also a great option instead of reaching for jeans. Best of all, they don’t wrinkle so great for traveling!
I’ve loved following the account @IronicBoatandTote this year so I couldn’t resist getting one of my own. Not only is it so fun (and a great gift to give!), it’s SO practical and a great everyday tote. Customize with any saying you like or just your monogram too! I did the medium size with the zip-top and it fits so much while still not being too bulky.
BEAUTY AND WELLNESS
I’ve talked about my love for ice rolling for years but there is magic in the one Lauryn Evarts made! It stays extra, extra cold and helps with depuffing, shrinking pores and just making your skin look its absolute best.
Another favorite product from Lauryn is the face razor which helps get rid of dry skin and peach fuzz to help give you the smoothest skin ever. A must for making your makeup and skincare really soak in and give you the best glow!
These under $20 face masks are game changers. I sleep with them so I can wake up with my jaw line looking tight and puff gone. A must before a big event!
I don’t wear much makeup these days with working from home but when I do, I’m all about Westman Atelier. Her products make my skin feel incredible and give a natural glow and coverage. All you need is a drop of these foundation drops for blendable coverage.
I clearly love anything that helps take away puff and swelling and this is another must have product. A little bit goes a long way and after 20 minutes, you’ll feel and look your best.
I always feel my best with a little color on my skin and this self-tanning cream gives you the most natural glow without all the mess. Use it like a normal lotion (still make sure to blend well and wash your hands!) and you instantly look like you got some sun! Plus it smells incredible.
I’m focused on getting my hair super healthy and this leave-in treatment has made my hair feel and look it’s absolute best when blowing it out with my Dyson Airwrap.
One of my bad habits is picking zits so these patches help me avoid picking at my skin as well as heal them even faster. For deep under the skin zits, these micropoint ones work wonders.
I’m always looking for beauty products that multi-task and this retinol body lotion has been a winner for me. Not only is it super moisturizing, it also has retinol in it so it helps with uneven texture, brighten dullness and firm skin. Plus under $20, you can’t beat that great price.
HOME AND TRAVEL
I light a candle everyday at my desk and while I have quite a few favorites, this scent may be my new number one. I first smelled it at New York Pilates where they burn it on loop. It’s the perfect calming floral, clean scent so perfect to keep on your desk and all year long.
This year, my absolute best purchase was my cat Oscar! And with Oscar came a lot of accessories! This handheld vacuum is an absolute must for any pet owner. I use it daily to clean up any loose litter or fur and it’s also great for crumbs in the kitchen or on your desk too.
Another pet owner must is this hair roller. It goes deep to get all pet hair and it helps keep my apartment looking its best (and cat hair free!).
Lugging around my yoga mat to my workouts was on of my annoyances when traveling to my workout classes so finding this mat has been a game changer. Folds up into my bag and also still has great padding.
Traveling always makes me go through my phone battery extremely quickly so this Mophie travel charger has been my must have to take everywhere with me. It has cables built-in so you don’t need to worry about packing your cord as well and it quickly brings your battery back to charge.
