Good morning! With the new year I thought it would be a good time to share my favorite beauty products that I can’t live without. I’m not high maintenance and don’t use products just for the sake of using them. I wear very little make up most days, but I do like what I like and I try to take care of my skin! I’ve tried a lot of different brands and products and these are the ones that are the best of the best!

THE 5 PRODUCTS THAT I USE EVERY SINGLE DAY:

This body hero perfecting body lotion is so good that I’m on my third bottle. It smoothes the look of my skin while moisturizing, and the smell is intoxicatingly good.

This Un-Cover-Up Cover Up is THE best every day concealer. It’s hydrating and dewy and luscious and feels light and bright. I literally can’t say enough about it. I’m on my 3rd container of this concealer, too. It makes you GLOW.

I collect a lot of lipsticks, I definitely have more tubes of this Generation G lipstick than any other brand. Not only do I have 3 different shades, but I have at least two tubes of each that I keep in various locations. It gives the best just-blotted look!

I use this nourishing facial cleanser every single night. True Botanicals makes all of my favorite skincare products and I use their Clear Collection to help keep my cystic acne at bay.

Speaking of True Botanicals, this Pure Radiance Oil is another product from their Clear Collection that I swear changed my skin. It doesn’t just moisturize, it purifies and balances my skin, preventing breakouts from happening.

5 MORE PRODUCTS THAT I USE MOST DAYS:

If I have plans and need to officially “get ready” then I’m likely wearing this Chanel Flawless Powder Foundation that I discovered last year. It’s like it lays a light filter over my skin that just makes my skin look so much smoother. Its kind of magical to be honest.

Okay, so even though I use this product all year long it gets A LOT more use this time of year. This bronzing powder is my favorite of all the ones I’ve tried. It gives a subtle sun kissed glow and is buildable!

Here’s another True Botanicals product that I actually use EVERY SINGLE morning but didn’t include in my Top 5 because I wanted to share the others first and was being a stickler about sticking to 5 (dumb I know). When I first wake up in the morning I spritz my face a couple of times with this Nutrient Mist to not only feel fresh, but more importantly its a daily vitamin for your skin! I also spray it every night BEFORE I put on my other nightly products because it makes my products apply really easily. Aaaand I have a travel size bottle that I carry on the plane when traveling! Obsessed.

So this Serene Scalp Balancing Conditioner is what made me purchase travel size bottles just so that I can travel with this stuff when I’m traveling and don’t want to check a suitcase. It’s that good. It’s gentle on your scalp, is hydrating, and it makes my hair so soft. I use and love the accompanying shampoo too! It’s also recommended for dandruff as well.

I’m rounding out the list with the True Botanicals Vitamin C Booster Powder! Did you know that Vitamin C is most potent and effective when in powder form?! You can mix it with any serum you love (I use this Clear Repair Serum) and it visibly brightens and firms your skin!! This is basically a product that every dermatologist can agree you should be using daily.

This year I want to focus on wellness as a lifestyle. I’m pretty good about exercising in general, but the last several months I really fell off of the “activity” wagon. So starting now I’m making a conscious effort to move more regularly as part of my entire day. And I’m so honored to partner with Nordstrom to share one of my new daily outfits that will encourage more movement!

I like wearing active wear mixed with regular street clothes because it doesn’t hold me back from walking more throughout my day, whether that’s to pick up my kids from school, or to go to the park, or to run an errand at the shop down the street. This classic chambray shirt is lightweight and is the perfect layering piece over leggings (I love these simple, black, high waisted leggings).

The smaller details can help you look pulled together, too. This pearl hair scrunchy is just about the cutest, isn’t it?! And my floral stud earrings are the perfect accessory because they don’t get in the way of exercise. They come in a few different color options.

I love the mix of the baby blue and peach colors on my Nike sneakers. And if you’re looking for good moisture wicking athletic socks that don’t slip then these cushioned tab back socks are for you. I have tried SO many different pairs and these are my most favorite.

My Patagonia fleece jacket is super cozy and warm. I really like the funnel collar and all of the trim detail. It’s my new favorite jacket for chilly days!

Wearing:

classic chambray shirt, patagonia fleece jacket,

black high waist leggings, white tank,

nike sneakers, white cushioned sports socks

pearl scrunchy hair tie, blue floral earrings

It’s easy to let our own well-being fall behind when we spend so much time focusing on our families. And it can be hard to find the time and energy (and maybe even more importantly, the desire) to exercise. That’s why I love walking so much. It’s not so strenuous and I don’t get sweaty and have to interrupt my day to immediately take a shower after. Plus it’s the perfect “me” time to listen to music or a podcast!

One of my girlfriends uses that Kopari deodorant and I tried it while we were traveling together and loved it – it smells so good. That black tank has just the right amount of drape to it. The quilted vest is the perfect option for adding layers but not restricting movement. And isn’t the neck line on this funnel neck hoodie so pretty?

Okay that stripe midi dress is adorable with that asymmetrical overlay at the waist (flattering!) and it comes in a great cinnamon color, too. The bralette would look pretty under so many dresses and tops and comes in a few neutral colors. And the pink coverup dress is super adorable (and reminds me of my blog’s colors when I first started LLL).

PS, did you catch my round up of easy, every day tops yesterday? They’re all under $100 as well!

Whether I’m dreaming of spring, summer, or an upcoming vacation, resort clothes are ALWAYS, hands down, my favorite style of clothes. They’re comfortable, breezy, feminine, colorful, and almost always have some sort of fun detail. Today’s New & Now feature is dedicated to the new Resort arrivals that are the cutest!

Wearing:

Raffia woven loafers for the win, and I can wear these in Charleston year round (it’s been 70 degrees here the last week). These would be really cute to wear while traveling to a tropical place, too.

I mean, how adorable is this Gingham one shoulder swimsuit?! That’s the perfect shade of blue, and the ruffle detail is gorgeous.

This light purple midi dress can go from beach to brunch, and would pair well with a denim jacket! And also a white denim jacket!

Do I even need to say anything about this blue stripe flowy mini dress? It pretty much screams “wear me every day”. It’s pretty popular too, so here are more sizes available here!

Now this curvy stripe crochet top grabbed my eye right away. It’s so unique! And doesn’t it look amazing with white jeans?

Banjanan keeps making this cute maxi dress in all the patterns and colors because it’s just the best shape!

I wear a majority of flat sandals in the summer and in beachy environments, so I love that these sparkly sandals add a little pizazz (how do you even spell that?) while still being comfortable.

This tiered dress is one of my most favorite shades of pink!! It’s really pretty and and easy to wear style.

When I mentioned “fun details” at the beginning of this post, the tie straps on this red maxi dress is a good example of that. A simple detail, I know, but still feminine and fun!

Okay so this white dress is my favorite thing in this whole round up! I LOVE the easy shape, the oversized sleeves, the short length, and the embroidered scallop trim! AND it comes in black as well!

Now these earrings make a statement. They’re like two beautiful sculptures for your ears.

I’m loving the tassels on this smocked white maxi dress. This just screams vacation to me!

Happy New Year!! I don’t know about you but I’m excited to start a new decade. It just brings a whole “you can do or start anything” kind of feeling. Looking back on the decade, it was definitely a good one for me that I know I’ll remember as some of the best years of my life. While I miss having babies, Lilly and Fletcher sure are fun at this age. And I just feel so thankful to be together and healthy and happy. That’s all I could really want. And overall, 2019 was a good end for the decade. I feel so grateful for this little space to share, and for all of you who come here to read who feel like good friends to me. I love sharing favorite finds, makers, products, places… And I’ll continue to do that. And I thought my first post of 2020 should be a nod to my favorite finds from 2019. In no particular order…

FAVORITE FINDS OF 2019

This Everlane cashmere sweater is one of my favorite things I purchased this year. It’s soft and cozy and is my go to cold weather sweater. I love the square crop shape, and it comes in a lot of great colors.

City of Girls is probably the best book I read all year. I couldn’t put it down. It’s so good in fact that it’s being turned into a movie. Reason enough to read it before the movie comes out.

This Hair Perfector treatment by Olaplex is like magic in a bottle. You know when you hair just feels kind of grimy and you’re not sure why? Well this is the magic stuff that washes it all away and resets my hair. I’ve gone through a couple of bottles now. Also worth noting, it says to leave on your hair for about 10 minutes but I usually do just a couple of minutes, as recommended by my hair stylist.

Okay, so I started “collecting” Carrie Forbes sandals a while a go, but I did buy a few new pairs in 2019 and they were 100% one of my most worn items of the year. They look good with everything and are so comfortable!

The Amazon dress. Yes, that Amazon “nightgown” dress that went viral. It’s under $30, feels like a nightgown, and comes in a ton of pretty prints. Cute enough to wear to dinner, but I prefer to wear it casually during the day.

This silicone dish sponge is one of my best kitchen tricks. It doesn’t get all icky like regular sink sponges, so it lasts a whole lot longer.

I bought my first pair of Tretorn sneakers this year and they’re THE best! I can jog in them, but let’s be honest and say I mainly run errands and walk and travel in them. 100% recommend these sneakers.

I could talk about a lot of things that I love in that picture above, but specifically for this post let’s focus on the woven plant stand by the fireplace. The best way to give a little lift to a cute plant and some height to an empty corner. More plants this year.

My J.Crew swimsuits get SO much wear, and I know that they’re a reader favorite too. Both my pink scoop neck suit and my navy underwire suit are classics and family friendly, too.

I finally upgraded by vacuum cleaner last year after using our old one for 12 years! To say I’m in love with our cordless Dyson vacuum is putting it mildly. It’s a life changer!! Especially when Lilly does the vacuuming for me :)

Another new hair product I started using last year is Living Proof’s Perfect Hair Day Dry Shampoo. Long name, but easy to use and super effective! I use it at home all the time, and I especially love traveling with it, too! Also that white floral wrap dress I’m wearing is another favorite dress from last year.

2019, the year when Tuckernuck released one of the best dresses ever, the taffeta shift shirt dress. Seriously one of the best most versatile most adorable dresses I’ve seen in a awhile. I want it in every color.

A few more 2019 honorable mentions: The year when these hangers made organizing my closet so much easier. I will always have one of these tunic cover ups in my carry on bag. The holy grail of eye make up remover. And my favorite blankets to curl up with.

If you have a warm getaway on your horizon then you’re in luck because the resort arrivals are so-freaking-cute right now. Bella Tu is always one of my favorite brands to pack for vacation, and I brought this new blue printed midi dress with me to Harbour Island last month and wore it to Thanksgiving dinner. I love the print, the pretty shade of blue, the easy shape, the beaded detail, and the matching tassel tie belt! And it’s super comfortable!

Wearing:

indigo printed midi dress (c/o),

natural woven low heel sandals, blue earrings

Like I said, the new resort arrivals are amazing right now and here are a dozen of my favorites!

How sleep is this swimsuit? Sort of obsessed and it comes in this gorgeous pink shade as well. And with this cover up! I’d like to live in this white dress. And a cute romper comes in handy for so many events (biking, music festivals, barbecues…)!
