My Favorite Purchases of 2023


Did 2023 fly by or was it just me?! I can’t believe that we are already in a new year and halfway through winter – so crazy!

I love looking back at some of my favorite purchased items of the year – beauty, home, fashion….there were a lot of favorites in 2023. Read below to see what made the cut!



  • ROTHYS CLOGS: These shoes! Honestly, more comfortable than Birkenstocks by a landslide. They feel like slippers but give you that Birk look all while being able to go in the wash! They keep selling out (I know why!), but if you get your hands on a pair, size down. They run big!

  • TARGET DRESS: I wore this dress almost my entire pregnancy this past year and loved how many different ways I could style it! It was super affordable, washed well and came in a bunch of colors – I wore a size medium my whole pregnancy because it was so stretchy!

  • LOU & GREY JOGGERS: The GOATS. Technically I didn’t find these in 2023 but more towards the end of 2022, but I sure did wear the heck out of them this past year. They are so extremely comfortable, feel and look like Lululumon but are always on sale for a great price. They run true to size – I wear a small.

  • TARGET LONG SLEEVE TEES: A great affordable fitting long sleeve tshirt with stretch. I’ve worn them all fall and winter and love them as a base layer under jackets. & vests. I wear a size medium.

  • TARGET TANKS: The same material as the long sleeve ones I mentioned above but in a tank version. A summer staple that I own in so many colors and I love that the price is under $10.

  • FREE PEOPLE BRALETTES: I love love love these bralettes! They are great for layering under cardigans, off the shoulder tops and sweatshirts. They come in a bunch of colors and provide light support! I wear the size M/L and I’m a size 34 DD.

  • THE BAR SWEATSHIRT: I’m embarrassed to say how many colors of this sweatshirt I have. It’s just so so comfortable, on trend and easy to wear whenever. They shrink a size once you wash them so I prefer the size Large or XL.

  • $10 TARGET BEACH BAG: I took this beach bag on so many trips because it’s so so easy to pack! It lays flat and folds up small and has a ton of pockets so it’s great for a beach vacation (plus you can’t beat the price!). They have a new version this year that I grabbed HERE.

  • SKIMS UNDERWEAR: I will never wear any other underwear again…I said it. These are THE BEST. So incredibly comfy, wash well, flattering, etc. Well worth the price tag in my opinion – true to size.

  • TARGET SPLIT LEGGINGS: Another great Target find in 2023 were the split leggings. I’ve worn the heck out of them and love how they don’t fall down, are flattering and very comfy. I wear my true size small.

  • CLARE V BUM BAG: Probably my favorite bag of 2023 and my most worn! It honestly goes with so many outfits and was so easy to carry while traveling and with 3 kids! Comes in a ton of colors and is so well made. I bit the bullet and bought the new bisque woven color as it will be perfect for spring!


  • DIME TINTED SUNSCREEN: No shocker here that this made the cut! I LOVE this stuff. It’s a great SPF that has a slight tint to it with 19% zinc. It goes on smooth and doesn’t leave you oily under your makeup. Code “ASH20” always works for 20% off.


  • RARE BEAUTY HIGHLIGHTER: One of the best highlighters I’ve ever used – it’s SO pretty! I love the shade “Flaunt”.

  • MERIT GLOW SERUM: Technically this was a find from last year, but I truly fell more and more in love with this glow serum in 2023. It’s so so hydrating and makes your makeup look flawless!

  • COLLEEN ROTHSCHILD EYE BRIGHTENER: How did I ever live without this stuff?! This takes my dark tired mom eyes and instantly makes  me look and feel awake. A little goes a long long way so the bottle should last you for about a year. Code “ASHLEYD20” always works for 20% off.

  • TARTE LIP LINERS: Gosh these last all day long! They go on so smooth and seriously stay on the lips forever. My favorite shade is “Mauve” with “Buff” being a close second. Code “ASHDONIELLE15” always works for 15% off.


  • MAREE EYE GELS: I love these eye gels that I recently found on Amazon! They actually work so well on puffy eyes and feel so refreshing under the eyes.

  • PATRICK TA EYESHADOW PALETTE: I got this palette back in October and have used it almost every day since. It’s so pricey but worth every penny in my opinion! It has great neutral matte colors and two cream colors that make great liners!

  • SKINNY CONFIDENTIAL ICE ROLLER: I love this thing so so much! I’ve bought a few cheaper options on Amazon and honestly they don’t work as well. This roller is great for de-puffing your face and waking you up in the am.


  • AG1: I know, I know, you are tired of hearing about AG1. Well, I can’t help it because I love it! Bryan and I actually both love starting our day with a glass of AG1 as we really feel that it helps with energy, clarity, focus and gut health. If anything, it really helps with bloating and regularity. Highly recommend if you are looking to add greens into your diet this year.


  • DOONA STROLLER: One of my favorite baby items of the year! We use it daily and have traveled with it a few time and love the convienece of it. It goes from a stroller to a car seat in a click of a button with no extra parts needed. The only downside is that there is no basket underneath so we bought the bag attachment for the back of the stroller from Amazon and LOVE it! Holds a ton!

  • FACTOR MEALS: These have changed our at home lunch game! So so delicious, portion control, fresh and only take 2 minutes to heat up in the microwave. Highly recommend!

  • BRUMATE ERAS CUP: My new favorite cup even over the ever popular Stanleys! This one doesn’t leak, comes in the prettiest colors/patterns and fits in a car cup holder!

Overall, 2023 was a great year with some great finds!
