BEB Favorites: January 2018
Hello hello last Monday in January!
Welcome to my first favorites post of the year; I’ve done these sporadically in the past, but am hoping to make them a monthly fixture here; there are always so many things I want to share with you, but more often than not I forget about them before I get the chance to talk about them!
Here’s to sharing lots of fabulous things in 2018! Let’s get rolling…
My Favorites! – January 2018
Jessica Simpson Maternity Jeans – I discovered these jeans when I was pregnant with Dominic, after going through so many other pairs, including super expensive brands, and not finding any that fit me well. These are literally the perfect maternity jeans – they’re slimming, flattering and, most important, they do not sag in the back after wearing them for any length of time! Plus, they’re reasonably priced; I recommend them to every pregnant person I know! (I have the slim fit boot cut, as well as the medium wash skinny jeans and dark wash skinny jeans.)
Zarbees Toddler Vitamins – I originally found these vitamins during a trip to Target last fall and I’ve been buying both the toddler multivitamin and the elderberry immune support ever since. I love that they are made without any artificial sweeteners, flavors, dyes, gelatin, or high-fructose corn syrup, plus they’re made in a nut-free facility, which is astonishingly hard to come by with vitamins, as I’ve found. I know a lot of people say that multi-vitamins don’t really do anything, and they might not, but Joseph is such a picky eater, that it at least makes me feel better that he’s getting some extra vitamins!
Bombas Socks – I mentioned that I bought these in a Friday Things a couple of months ago and I’m thrilled to tell you that these are the very, very best socks I think I’ve ever owned. They are incredibly soft, not too thick, not too thin, absolutely perfect. I immediately bought more after my test-run with the couple pairs I initially purchased.
NARS Larger Than Life Long-Wear Eyeliner – I use this eyeliner every single day and it’s amazing. It goes on super smooth, doesn’t smudge and stays put all day. It, along with the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Eye Liner, are my two go-to eyeliners; nothing else I’ve used has even come close.
Plae Shoes – Joseph got two pairs of these late in the fall, and they instantly became a favorite of his and ours, as well. They fit so well, go on easily, and have worn extremely well. He has a pair of the TY Light Year Blue and the NAT Hyperspace. The company also sells tabs separately so if your child happens to have wider feet or a high arch, you can buy larger tabs without needing to buy bigger shoes. Genius.
L.L.Bean Little Boys’ Ultralight Down Jacket – It was SO difficult to find a winter jacket for Joseph this year! In past years, we had been using The North Face Toddler Glacier fleece, which worked well when just getting in and out of the car. However, this year we needed something heavier since he is playing outside at school when it’s above 32 degrees, and playing in the snow here at home. I ordered nearly a dozen jackets for him from different brands, and none fit him well (some were too snug, too big, insanely long sleeves, etc.) except this one. It seriously fits him like a glove, it keeps him warm, and he loves wearing it.
Neutrogena Hand Cream – This is so old-school (I remember my mom giving it to me to use in middle school during the winter when my knuckles had cracked from being so dry!), but it is the absolute BEST hand cream I’ve yet to use in the winter. My hands were terribly chapped and cracked a month or so ago, so I bought this and started applying it religiously and they healed up quickly. I had tried some other hand creams before buying it, and they just did not work. Definitely a classic!
Smartfood White Cheddar Popcorn – This has been my guilty snack indulgence for the last few weeks… SO good.
St. Ives Body Wash and Lotion – I always have insanely dry, flaky skin in the wintertime, but this year it has been smooth and soft, and I totally attribute it to the combination of St Ives Nourish and Soothe Oatmeal and Shea Body Wash and the same oatmeal and shea butter body lotion. Absolute best body wash/lotion combo I have ever used.
SOREL Lea Wedge Boots – Okay, I am in LOVE with these boots. I asked for a Zappos gift card for Christmas to put towards them because I had been eyeing them for awhile. I desperately wanted a shoe with some height but that had a sole safe enough to still walk around on snowy/slushy sidewalks and parking lots. These are quite literally perfect. The wedge is extremely comfortable and doesn’t even feel like I’m wearing a heel and the tread on the bottom makes me feel totally comfortable walking outside without fear of slipping and falling.
That’s a wrap with what I’ve been loving recently! I would love to hear about some of your new favorites as well; share them in the comments below!
