These are a Few of My Favorite Things

Whether you’ve been shopping since Halloween or are just breaking out your Christmas tree, I think we can all agree that it’s officially time to welcome the holidays with open arms! It is full-on holiday music, twinkling lights, and Hallmark movies time and I couldn’t be happier. So in honor of the holidays, I’m putting together some gift-giving ideas that may be able to help you with your holiday shopping. Today I’m starting by listing my top 10 favorite items of the year.

1. Dolly Lamb Leather Moto Jacket

I finally upgraded my pleather moto jacket to the “real deal” earlier this year and I couldn’t be happier. This one is so soft and beautiful and great quality, especially for the price. I also love the style and the subtle gold hardware accents. Hands down one of my favorite purchases of 2019!
Sizing Tip: I have it in a size small. You may want to size up if you plan to layer it.


2. IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream with SPF 50

I consistently get asked what makeup I’m wearing in my Coffee Chat videos and the answer is always the same, IT Cosmetics CC+ Cream in Neutral Medium. If I were stuck on a deserted island, THIS would be the only thing I need (bonus, it has SPF 50). It gives my skin a natural, dewy look and it’s just the right coverage and weight, not heavy at all.


3. KISS Lashes in #11

Another FAQ from Coffee Chat is “what brand of lash strips do you use?” Last year I developed a terrible allergy to eyelash extensions. That’s when I discovered KISS Lashes in #11. I adhere mine with the black lash glue and they last all day with ZERO irritation.


4. Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

If you saw my latest IGTV video you know that these are a staple in my winter wardrobe! I love the high waist and how they “suck everything in” while still being comfortable and slightly edgy.
P.S. We’ll be styling these on the Style Challenges Winter 2019 Capsule Wardrobe! Sign up now to get in on the fun.


5. Alison + Aubrey 18K Gold Baguette Hoops

We just got these in stock a few weeks ago and I don’t think a day has gone by yet that I haven’t worn them! They are just THE perfect size, amazing quality, and go with literally everything. These are my new daily go-to staple earrings! P.S. They also come in Sterling Silver and make an awesome gift!


6. Alison + Aubrey Fine Line 18K CZ Open Circle Necklace

Same as above. I wear this necklace on an almost-daily basis. It’s delicate with just a tiny bit of sparkle. The quality is great, I’ve been wearing it for over a year with no tarnishing or wear and tear at all.


7. Leopard Booties

Really, leopard everything but let’s focus on booties since I’m narrowing this to a top ten list. Leopard booties (and shoes) just add that extra little fun detail to every outfit and they pattern mix perfectly. Remember leopard IS a neutral!


8. Nike Epic React Flyknit 2 Sneakers

I just asked for my fifth pair of these for Christmas. These have been my go-to running shoes for the past few years. They are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever worn in my entire life and make my knees happy on the treadmill. I’ve converted so many family members and friends that Nike should be paying me!

9. Adidas Stan Smith Sneakers

This was the surprise of the year for me. These sneakers weren’t really what I considered “my style” but I’ve worn them SO much since I bought them. They’re incredibly comfortable and give all of my casual outfits a fun, modern feel!


10. The GYPO Community

WHAT? You can’t buy that but it just had to be on the list of my favorite things this year. Want to know why? Because I’ve been really open and vulnerable this past year on everything from not feeling like one of the “cool girls” to hormones and sex drive. You’ve come around to support me in ways that I never would have dreamed. Not to mention all that you do for each other! You are truly my biggest blessing and I so appreciate YOU!
