Favorite Purchases of 2014

I know we're 8 days into 2015 but when I saw this post floating around blogland, I couldn't help myself.  Who doesn't want to share their most loved things?  These were my favorite purchases in 2014 - things I'd buy a million times over again and would highly recommend to anyone.


I bet the blanket scarf was one of everyone's favorite purchases last year because they are amazing!  I found mine on Amazon here for only $10.  That's right!  It's a legit duplicate of the infamous Zara scarf and don't be scared off by the estimated one month shipping time from China, mine came in about two weeks.

In April, I gave up on liquid foundation and switched to Bare Minerals Original foundation.  Best. Decision. Ever.  It speeds up my getting ready time (I use this brush to apply) and my skin is noticeably healthier.  I really haven't used anything else since I bought it.  

Are you guys sick of listening to me talk about these boots?  The love affair continues.  I'm obsessed.  They're on sale now for under $100 with only a few sizes left so get them while you still can!

My favorite part of my house is my bar cart!  It's just so cute and I've had fun decorating it each season.  

I would wear these leggings all day, everyday if it was acceptable.  I pretty much already do, just ask Nick.  They are THE best leggings and based on the 1,000 five star reviews on Nordstrom's site, I would say a lot of others agree with me!

This curling iron wasn't technically a purchase - it was a gift - but I love it so much it had to make the list.  I use the 1 1/4 inch barrel and it makes the perfect curl, every time.

I wish I could remember who recommended this NARS concealer because I would send them a hand-written thank you note.  It's very creamy and goes on so smoothly that it doesn't settle into fine lines.  And it covers everything!  This was a recent buy but I'll never be without it now.

So much goodness!  Hopefully some of these will now be your favorite purchase of 2015 :)
What was the best thing you bought last year?

  8. I have been THIS close to purchasing those boots since you mentioned them ... maybe I just need to do it. I have been obsessed with my Hot Tools 1 1/4 barrel iron as of late, too! Don't you just feel like you have LC-worthy curls after each time you use it? Love it. Great purchases, girl!

  9. That scarf for only 10 dollars... WHAT! So crazy! lol! I absolutely, LOVE that bar cart! So cute and chic! Also, I know it is partly socially unacceptable to love leggings as much as I do, but I wear them whenever/wherever I can! {gasp!} :)

  10. I really like the whole idea behind mineral makeup. It's super quick to apply, great for your skin, and covers like a dream. Sadly, I'm HIGHLY allergic to everyone I've ever used... Like it's so bad that I get hives, on my face... So I stick with my liquid foundations! Lol. You're not the only one who has raved about the Nars concealer. I think I'm going to have to give it a try. :)

  16. Thanks to you I am the proud owner of the scarf, and I'm pretty sure I need the leggings too! I didn't snag them when they were on the Anniversary Sale, and I'm kicking myself for it now!

  17. I love my blanket scarf too! They are so warm, big and perfect. I love your bar chart! I am in search of one or something similar, so you have made my search a whole lot less complicated. I can understand why you love those boots so much. They are adorable!! Have a great day!!

  18. Great idea for a post! I don't even remember what I bought in 2014... probably because it was all baby stuff and that's not nearly as much fun for me personally as a new pair of shoes ;-)

  30. Cute boots and I have that rainbow curling iron as well but suck at using it!!

  31. Those leggings and the blanket scarf are among two of my favorite purchases as well!

  32. I have been obsessed with Bare Minerals for years! When I made the switch years ago from liquid foundation to BM I swore I'd never use anything else! Now that I work from home and rarely see people, I use drug store foundation most of the time just because I can't justify using 20$ foundation to sit at home--but BM is still my fave!

  33. I won't ever forget that Amazon seller's photo for that blanket scarf...it just looks so shady! BUT, you got your blanket scarf! hahahaha

    I've been thinking about trying bareMinerals....one of my favorite beauty gurus, Claire, uses it for her acne prone skin and her face always looks amazing. Have you tried the beauty blender? I recently learned to get it wet before applying foundation and concealer, and GIRL....the results are amazing!

    Would you believe that I'm still trying to convince my husband to buy that bar cart?? It's just ridiculous, BUT, they're having a save 15% off with a $125 purchase, so maybe that will convince him :)

    love this post friend!
