In 2018 I turned to shopping as a form of therapy more so than I have before. Surprisingly, these insignificant purchases went a long way in helping me feel a little bit better about all the chaos I’ve been dealing with behind the scenes. However, I do want to cut back on my shopping habits for 2019 because in reality all the spending is only adding to my stress, but more about that on another day.

I recently did an assessment of my purchases for the year and thought it would be fun to share my top 10 for 2018! Originally I was going to stick to wardrobe favorites but wanted to expand my picks to accessories,shoes and makeup/beauty. Read on to catch my top 10 purchase for the year and why they deserve a mention. I’m also including a few honorable mentions below because narrowing down to 10 was really hard, LOL!

  1. Black Madewell Overalls – I love my denim overalls so when I saw Madewell release a black pair I knew they had to be mine! I wear them far more than I would have ever expected so they have definitely legitimized themselves as a wardrobe staple in my closet, for sure!
  2. Amazon Wide Brim Hat – If you are looking for the perfect wide brim hat I cannot recommend this one from Amazon enough! For the price, it can’t be beat and it comes in tons of other colors!
  3. Natalie Borton Earrings – I seriously wear the mustard yellow tassel earrings at least once a week! They make the perfect subtle statement! I also have the tassel ones in pink and really want the Sydney hoops next! if you’re looking for beautiful, handmade jewelry, look no further than Natalie Borton.
  4. J.Crew Ballet Flats – I’d been on the hunt for replacement flats for work and stumbled upon these from J.Crew during a sale. Thank goodness I did because they are amazing! Super cute and comfortable, they pair with everything! See how I wore them on the blog here.
  5. Express Low Heeled Booties – I only just recently got them but they’ve already gotten an epic cost per wear going! I wear them almost every day for work, they are just so comfortable, classic and cute!
  6. Madewell 9” High-Rise Jeans – I was in need of a really nice pair of denim and these one’s from Madewell do not disappoint. They are uber comfortable, I absolutely love the wash, and they will last a long time. What’s not to love?
  7. Vans Sneakers – These have become my go-to every day sneakers! I love how comfortable they are for running around with the kids and that they stylish, too! I explain my love for these shoes in this post.
  8. IT Cosmetics Super Hero Mascara – Let’s e real here, I love mascara and have a ton I consider holy grail, but I think I found the ultimate with this one from IT Cosmetics. Adds volume and length which is the dynamic duo in the beauty world!
  9. Vanity Planet Face & Body Cleansing Brush – I can confidently say that this brush has dramatically changed my skin! I love all the brush options, I love that it buffs my skin to perfection, and there are always deals so you can get it at a great price.
  10. Olehenriksen Truth Serum – I legit think this stuff is magic! My skin has been brighter and more supple since I’ve started using this in late November. It is a hefty price tag for the serum along which is why I’m going suggest getting it as the 3 Little Wonder Mini kit. You get the serum and two other wonderful products within the line.
