Hi friends! I was recently asked by Meg Biram to share my favorite purchase of 2014. She asked several bloggers “what is that one thing that you purchased last year that you just can’t live without?” While there are many items that I purchase that I love, it really took me a minute to think about that one thing. Besides my husband, my family and friends, and my cats and dog (so counts), it’s really hard to choose just one thing!
Now, I could say my car, or my iPhone, or my computer (and good wifi signal), but that’s boring, right? I wanted to choose something that I love that I could share with others, with hopes of convincing them to buy it too, because it’s life changing (not an exaggeration). And technically, my item was a gift from my Mom, so I didn’t technically purchase it. So let’s just call this “the post about that thing I love but is secondary and was gifted to me by my mom”, okay?
Without further ado, my favorite item of 2014 was (is):
My Clarisonic. Did you think it was going to be something design-related? I did too, until I realized that this is what I would save in the event of a fire. I have only had it for a few months, but I can already tell you that it’s upped my skincare game immensely. My husband even uses it now and then! It’s so, so worth it.
Coming in a close second (I had to choose a runner up, obviously) is this slouchy Free People tote. This is my everyday bag, and I love it. It’s not leather and it’s not expensive, but it’s big and the straps are the perfect length. Plus, it’s reversible! I have the cognac and coral color, and I really want this darker color for Winter. I love this bag (second only to my Clarisonic).
I’m sharing my picks with the fabulous B Bar, on their blog The Well, so make sure to check out other blogger’s picks for their favorite item! You might find something that you love.
What was your favorite purchase of 2014? Can you narrow it down to just one?
