Hey Loves! Is anyone else still wondering where 2017 went? I’m still trying to figure out how it’s already come and gone! Since ending 2017, I’ve had a bunch of people ask what my top favorite purchases were, and after days of trying to narrow it down, I’m finally ready to share! In true Lauren fashion, everything that wasn’t super cheap, I waited until it went on sale before I bought it. I hate paying full price for anything!
Before we get started, I want to introduce y’all to another blogger named Lauren. We found each other through social media about 3 months ago, and I’ve been hooked on her ever since! We’ve teamed up on this post, so once you’re done reading mine, make sure you check out her favorites post! If you don’t follow her on Instagram, click here so you can see all of her daily outfits! I also recommend checking out more topics on her blog! She’s the Queen at layering outfits, has the cutest puppy you’ve ever seen and she’s pretty amazing at decorating! A little birdie also told me that she’ll be posting more on decor this year!
We’ll start my favorites off with this beauty!
I’ve wanted to buy the PMD (Personal Microderm) for years! On Black Friday, I finally threw in the towel and made the purchase! I haven’t looked back, either! It’s a microdermabrasion tool for you to use at home, and OMG…. it’s amazing! This thing has helped my hormonal acne so much + made my pores so much smaller. I honestly can’t recommend this product enough.
Since we’re talking about skin care, I’ll move on to my favorite skin mask! In August, I started using ZO Skin products and they’ve been a game changer for my skin! I’m always breaking out (around that time of the month) and this sulfur mask has been my saving Grace! I always tend to get cystic acne around my chin. This mask is the only thing that reduces the size, before they get out of control! There’s so many good things to say about this skin care line, but hands down, this product is my Holy Grail! If you’re in the Chattanooga Area, you can get these products at Bellisima Advanced Aesthetics.
It’s no question that I LOVE my XL monogram necklace. I think this beauty will always be one of my favorites! You can read more about it here and see what size I chose + how I managed to snag it on sale!
Does NYX even make a bad butter gloss? I would probably say that Creme Brulee is my favorite, but they’re all great! Coming in at $5, these lippies are beyond affordable! Another favorite is Vanilla Cream Pie.
When it comes to nail polish, my go to lately is OPI Tickle My France-y. It’s in the nude family, but I would say it’s a darker nude. In the bottle it looks pretty brown, but when you paint it on, it’s actually light. I think it’s my favorite because it goes with everything!
2017 was the year for my jewelry collection to grow! Y’all know I LOVE a good statement earring! And man oh man if Lisi Lerch earrings didn’t take the cake. These pearl earrings were my daily go to last month and still continue to be! You can read here, where I talk about some other earrings I love from this brand!
If you love a good statement clutch, this Leopard clutch is perfect! I waited so long for this to come back in stock and when it did, I jumped on it. Red Dress Boutique has the cutest things, so if you’ve never checked it out, you should! They always have great deals, too!
Last, but not least are these Quay sunglasses! These glasses reminded me of the Karen Walker ones I’ve wanted…. but way cheaper! I believe I scored these on sale for $30! I never pay much for sunnies because I’m so hard on my glasses! Maybe I should have a goal to be better about that?
What were some of your favorite purchases in 2017? Make sure you let me know by leaving a comment below, or comment on my Instagram post! I love seeing what other people bought and loved! Also, don’t forget to check out Lauren’s favorites post! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
