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.
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!
