2018 – A Year In Review

Oh my goodness.


I’ve always looked back at the end of a year feeling grateful and happy for all I’ve accomplished, but you guys….this year TAKES THE CAKE.

I mean, first and foremost, I gave birth to a human. A HUMAN!

Something I was so afraid to do, and I did it. Not only that, but I left my full time nursing job to take my little corner of the web FULL TIME.

It’s been better than I’ve ever imagined and I honestly wouldn’t have been able to do it without you all reading my blog, shopping my links and interacting with me.


I thought that I would do a “year in review” post on here today….top 10 items bought from you all throughout the year, top read posts and much more!



10.) MAC Lipstick in Blankety
One of my all time favorite lipsticks. It’s actually sold out almost everywhere, but I was able to find it here. It’s the perfect shade of nude with a little pink. It looks great on everyone and is the best lip color for everyday wear!

9.) DV Leopard Mules
These cuties are no longer in stock but they were a super fun find this year!

8.) Zella High Waisted Leggings
I for sure could not live without these leggings. I love these ones for all things active or if you are traveling somewhere and want to stay warm. These are thicker leggings that stay up and suck you in! The price point is amazing too!
I wear a size small in all Zella leggings – true to size.

7.) Two Piece Ruffled Swimsuit
You all loved this suit when I wore it to Kauai this summer and I don’t blame you! Super flattering and under $30. Eloise was only 4 months on this trip and I still was feeling a little bit shy about my postpartum body. This suit made me feel way less self conscious! I have a whole post on all of my Amazon swimsuits HERE.
Suit runs small, I sized up and got a medium.

6.) Aerie Hometown Sweatshirt
AKA the softest sweater you’ll ever own. I promise you will want to wear it all the time. I own it in 3 colors and love wearing it with either jeans or leggings.
I wear a size small in these and they are currently on sale for $22.47.

5.) Dr. Brandt’s No More Baggage
I knew that this eye gel would make the list because I used it and shared it throughout the ENTIRE year. I cannot live without this stuff and I use it DAILY.
It’s currently 30% off right now with code “FB30”.

4.) Native Natural Deodorant
I was so excited to see this one make the list because I’m hoping I helped spread some natural deodorant knowledge this year to all of you! I did an entire blog post answering your top questions about Native HERE and I’m so excited to continue to use it throughout 2019!
My favorite scent is coconut vanilla.

3.) Adidas Running Shoe
I love that the #3 top selling item of 2018 was in the LAST week of the year! These blush Adidas were a huge hit last week not only because they are under $50, but they are so so comfortable. Hundreds of you purchased and I received so many DMs from all of you explaining your love for them as well! They also come in a gorgeous red/burgundy color HERE.
Sizing deets: I usually wear a size 7 in Nikes but in all Adidas I get my true size 6.5.

2.) Aerie Lace Bralette
I knew this bralette would make the list, but #2?!? Clearly all of you were looking for a bralette with support just like I was! If you haven’t purchased this bralette yet, get on, no matter what size you are! It’s a good one! It also comes in 4 other colors HERE.
(I’m a 34DD and wear a medium)

1.) Yeti Mug
No surprise here that the Yeti mug came in as the #1 seller for the YEAR! Thousands and I repeat, thousands of you purchased one of these mugs and I’m pretty sure every single one of you absolutely loves it! It keeps your coffee warm for hours and the price point is amazing!
