Best Buys of 2014

best-buys-of-2014

I’m so excited that today I’m linking up with so many AMAZING bloggers. Thanks to Meg & Victoria from the B Bar (great blogger resources), we are all sharing our favorite buys of 2014…because everyone is ready to start spending again now, right???

Anyway, I had a really hard time narrowing it down to just one item. SO, one item in each category it is! Clothing, home decor, electronics, beauty, and kitchen.

1) The Cozy Cable Knit Throw: This blanket will legitimately change your life. The weight and faux sheepskin keep you super warm, and it’s the perfect sized blanket. It’s totally Hasell’s favorite too.

2) Boxxle Wine Dispenser: I’m not a huge drinker, but red wine is definitely my drink of choice. Since I would buy a bottle for a glass or two and never finish it, I was intrigued to learn more about Boxxle (and boxed wine). I could go on and on, but basically boxed wine 1) lasts so much longer (six weeks!!) 2) is cheaper ($20 for a good box aka FOUR bottles) 3) is better for the environment (HALF the carbon footprint) vs bottles of wine. This awesome contraption is a chic way to dispense the negatively perceived boxed wine. Seriously, I HIGHLY recommend.

3) Eberjey Gisele PJ Set: The softest, the comfiest, the most necessary pajamas you’ll ever buy. I love how tailored they are – my first pajama set! They totally work for lounge-wear too (especially if you occasionally work from home like me!)

4) Laura Mercier Smooth Finish Flawless Fluide: I’ve never gotten so many compliments about makeup. Perfect, natural coverage (I wear Cashew).

5) Bose Soundlink Color Bluetooth Speaker: I constantly have music or podcasts playing in the apartment now. Once it’s linked with your phone, tablet, etc. it automatically connects every time you turn it on. The sound quality is so nice!!


Check out everyone’s Best Buys of 2014…I will be pouring over each one of them with a cup of coffee in hand this morning.

  1. eberjey makes the best pjs!! i love that pb blanket too 🙂 great list! xo jillian

  2. I’m a sucker for a good blanket 😉 I was so bummed that I missed out this round – I had even written myself a little note but then Friday rolled around and the day got away from me. Next time!

    1. I started with the tinted moisturizer and needed/wanted a little more coverage. I’m totally hooked!

    1. I’m serious when I say I’ve converted!!! It’s so easy and convenient and really good for the environment.

  3. i am always looking for a good foundation + LOVE laura mercier but never tried this, putting on the list!
    also, i kind of expected hasell to make the cut haha, but it sounds weird to say you ‘bought’ him 🙂

    1. I seriously considered!!!! That’s too funny. You should definitely try the foundation – it’s my favorite ever!! I was previously using the LM tinted moisturizer and I like this much more.

  4. Of course you already know my top choice. Buttttttt, I’m definitely asking my makeup place about the smooth finish. And, the cable knit throw is on my wish-list for Easter. XOXO.

    1. Both of those are amazing products. I hear there is a really similar knock-off pair of PJs at Target though…

  5. I’m going to have to look into that speaker! I’ve been looking for something to play music from my phone on! Thanks for the recommendations!

    1. I’m obsessed with mine! It automatically connects to my phone when it’s nearby – all you do is hit play!

  6. I can personally vouch for #4! I bought it on your recommendation and love it. And I love that you couldn’t choose just one. 🙂

    1. HA, of course I couldn’t. I’m so glad you tried it – I’m obsessed!

  7. That throw is perfection! It looks so pretty and warm, and those PJs look so soft. I like how you mixed it up a bit by adding a handful of items to your list!
