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…


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.
