My Best Buys of 2018

Happy end of December everyone! 2018 was an amazing year full of great finds and deals.. from gadgets to cookware we found some incredible products. Today I decided to round up some of our top favorites for all of you in a collage sharing Jeff’s favorites and another showcasing mine. While we loved most everything, there are a few items that stand out above the rest. Alrighty then… Let’s get down to it!

Best Buys of 2018

Favorite Foundation: I have been loving Lancôme’s Teint Idole Long Wear Foundation. It is a bit pricey (I used to wear drugstore foundation!) but it lasts all day long (up to 24 hours) and it comes in many color shades which is key. A foundation really needs to match correctly to look natural. It’s also oil-free which I love. Click here to see my favorite foundation.

Favorite Concealer: I love Jouer’s Concealer! It is a full-coverage concealer which is major for spots and dark circles and it comes in every shade imaginable. Click here to shop my favorite concealer.

Favorite Hand Cream: I love keeping my skin moisturized and my hands especially. After having flown as a flight attendant and washing my hands more times than I can count, I have found L’Occitane’s Hand Cream to be the best. I use this every single day without fail and keep different tubes everywhere.. at home and in my purse for when I’m running around. Click here for my favorite hand cream.

Kristy’s Favorite Purchases

Best Buys of 2018

Best Headphones: I received the Bose Soundlink Headphones for Christmas and I seriously LOVE them! The white/leather color combination is adorable and this set of headphones is perfect for traveling this year. They block all noise, sound great and the battery lasts a long time. Click here to shop the headphones.

Best Cozy Cardigan: One of the coziest little pieces I’ve worn this year.. I am in love with my Barefoot Dreams CozyChic Hoodie Cardigan. I wear this cardigan everywhere from the gym to dinner and I travel with it constantly. It comes in many colors and has amazing reviews. Click here to shop the cardigan.

Best Vacuum: Dyson Vacuums are the best and I’m in love with mine. They are wireless, easy to maneuver and small for storing. I have the V7 (click here for mine) and just purchased this upgraded refurbished vacuum at an amazing price for my daughter, Emma. It’s 50% off and she loves it. Click here to shop the vacuum.

Best Buys of 2018

Favorite Drill: Jeff LOVES this drill and this drill kit! He uses it for everything around the house and all of his projects.. It’s a must-have for anyone who likes to tackle home projects big and small. Another plus.. the kit comes with 2 batteries which is incredible! We use the batteries for all DeWalt products so having an extra is a plus! The price is also great with everything that comes with it. Click here to shop Jeff’s drill.

Favorite Cookware: Le Creuset’s Bistro Grill is hands down, Jeff’s favorite cookware piece! Jeff uses this grill for just about everything he cooks. The surface is large enough for several kabobs or a couple of steaks at a time. He loves the fact that he can grill during the winter without freezing his booty off. ;) Click here for Jeff’s favorite grill.

Favorite Speaker: Our favorite purchase is the Google Home Mini – we use it for everything and keep it in our kitchen full-time. We use it to control lights and play music in the background while Jeff cooks away. The price is great for this multi-use tool. Click here to shop the Google Home Mini.

Favorite Slippers: Jeff is in love with these slippers from UGG. He wears them constantly and the best part is that they are on sale. Snag them while you can. Click here to shop the slippers.

  1. Hi Kristy,
    Happy New Year ?
    I’m still thinking of the roomba. I know you got it a month or so ago. Do you still love it? Does it get stuck in places? And your Dyson. What is the battery life and do you have to hold the power button down while you use it?
    Thank you so much ?
    Cassy Willow
