As part of my new year organization plan, I’m going through last years buys to figure out what items got the most use and was thinking y’all might want to know about my favorite purchases!  I’m including the best curling wand, investment bag, carry on suitcase, my rose gold pop socket (always get questions about this on insta stories lol) and no clump mascara….

favorite purchases

Leather mini skirt // turtleneck // tights //earrings // bag //

black coat

Leather mini skirt

I had been eyeing this brown mini skirt for a while and finally decided to order it when it got marked down a few weeks ago!  I love it with a simple black turtleneck and over the knee boots. For size reference I got the 2 and normally wear a 25/26 in jeans.

Rose gold pop socket

I never understood why pop sockets were so popular until I got one!  It is so easy to grip your phone when running, taking pics and talking.  I highly recommend trying one if you drop your phone a lot lol.

vanessa mooney black tassel earrings

I wear these earrings way too much!  They are so lightweight and work with everything from jeans and a tee to a long gown.

Black Saint Laurent Small Sac De Jour

This investment bag is a classic piece for work or travel.  I love the different compartments and the optional over the shoulder strap.

L’oreal voluminous lash mascara

This L’oreal mascara is so good for lengthening with no clumps.  It was sent to me in a press beauty package and my old mascara was running low so I decided to test it out.  I’ve been re-ordering it for almost a year now and absolutely love it!  Seriously no. clumps.

GHD curling wand

I love how this curling wand can give a relaxed beach wave or a classic curl depending on how you use it.

grey twist front pullover

This twist front top is seriously the softest piece of clothing I own.  It was my best seller on the blog last year and decided to order it in a few more colors this year.

38 mm apple watch in gold/pink sand

As soon as I found out I was going to be partnering with the BMW Dallas Marathon last year, I got my apple watch.  It is the smartest purchase because it made tracking my runs (and other workouts) so much easier.  I’ll be completely honest, I used to think they were really dorky, but now that I have one and it tracks all of my daily activity, I keep it on all day!


My mom got me into using this shampoo when we were on a trip last year. This paired with the conditioner helps calm down my curls.  I usually blow dry it with a round brush then go over it with my curling wand.

Tumi Carry On

I’m pretty good about never checking a bag at the airport and this hard case bag is seriously the best for carrying on!  It has lasted so well (actually got mine a few years ago) and I’ve even packed for an 8 day Europe trip in just this bag.  If you are looking for a quality carry on this year, I highly recommend this one.
