Five of my Best Purchases from 2017

Here it is: my official list for the best purchases I made this year! Enjoy and we'll see you in 2018!

2017 has been one eventful year. Through adjustments in parenting, body image, and overall self-care, here are five of my best purchases.

Every year, I make a few key purchases that really leave an impression. I consider them my ‘best purchases’ and they make me want to scream, “Where have you been all my life?!”

Our 2017 calendar was packed to the brim. With our family’s new addition, our shopping habits shifted quite a bit.

You’ve probably noticed that the Fabulous Habits blog shifted gears as well. Now also offering family-oriented content, we’re aiming to cater you whether you’re a household of 1 or 100.

So to wrap-up the year, here are the best purchases we made:

Five of My Best Purchases from 2017

Aveda Shampure Shampoo

My hair is prone to getting sticky from build-up. It’s proven quite difficult in choosing the right hair products. Thankfully, my hairdresser recommended Shampure and it has worked wonders. Even after using it for the first tie, my hair felt lighter, cleaner, and bouncier.

Nursing Tank Top
I transitioned out of maternity clothes slower than I had anticipated. I may be wearing “regular jeans” again, but I’m also still sporting my Thyme Maternity nursing tank tops. After hundreds of washes, they’ve held their shape and color. I wear them under cardis, ponchos, and blazers – which are a good reflection on how I rotate my “mommy uniform.”

Bobbi Brown Intensive Skin Serum Concealer
I purchased this in the middle of the summer and it immediately became this year’s go-to product. I have really dry skin. This concealer works wonders without making me look too flakey or washed-out.

Lion Towel
Pottery Barn Kids’ Icon Towel is oh-so soft and oh-so cute. I love the hood-feature because it ends up serving as a bathrobe-towel hybrid. Leo isn’t so cold when he comes out of the bath in this number.

Lightweight Down Jacket

I like to call this my “puffer jacket” (similar here). It has served as a great autumn piece and now, it makes for the perfect transitional outwear as we step into winter. It’s lightweight and keeps me warm. I especially love it for its “bomber-style” cut.

My best wishes to you as you ring in the new year! We’ll be back in 2018!

  1. I love Aveda products, so I totally get why you love that shampoo! I get as many of their hair care products as I can.

  2. I absolutely love my puffer down jacket! You are right, it’s very lightweight, but really keeps you warm! I’ve just started wearing concealer and don’t know why it’s taken me so long to do so.

  3. Those all look like great, useful items to have. I only recently got a nice puffer jacket, and it has made a world of difference in the wintertime. So important to have some quality items that make life easier! I’ll have to check out the Aveda shampoo, I have heard great things about their product line.

    • Going into Aveda really changed my hair game. They even have a dry shampoo that works wonders! My hair is really dark black and there are no white, powdery traces when I put it on!

  4. Such a great post idea to finish off the year! I’ve yet to try anything from Aveda, but have heard great things about their hair care line. I’d love to try Shampure.

  5. I really need to try out that under eye concealer. Working from home means waking up early and staying up late to squeeze in “to-do’s” and I always look so exhausted. Thanks for putting this product on my radar!

  6. I love this way of looking back on the year! Now you have me trying to figure out my top five purchases! As a first time mom, I think a lot of them would be baby related. Our little guy loves his hooded towels as well!

  7. Oh you got some goodies for sure:) I got a puffer coat as well in 2017 and have never been more thankful for a coat – it’s SO warm!!!
