BEB Favorites: January 2019
[Affiliate Disclosure: I received ButcherBox product to try at home, however all opinions are my own.]
There’s only one day left in the month, which means it’s time for a new favorites post! Our first one of the new year, it’s packed with tons of things that I’m loving right now.
We have two new-to-me products and the rest of ones that I’ve been using for awhile now and couldn’t wait to share with you!
Rodan + Fields Skincare– I’ve jumped around a lot with my skincare routine over the last 5 to 10 years, liking some products but never feeling like they actually made much of a difference. Towards the end of summer, I saw a friend of mine from college post on Facebook that she became a Rodan + Fields consultant and since I was nearing the end of my current hodge podge of skincare products, I decided to give it a chance. I’ve now been using it for nearly five months and my skin has NEVER looked or felt better. As in, I don’t feel like I need to hide under a brown paper bag if I go out without makeup. It’s astounding. I’ve been using their Redefine line + Hydration Serum (only at night and only since it’s gotten cold and my skin has gotten drier) + Hydration Bright Eye Complex + Lash Boost (which is seriously mind blowing in and of itself). It feels so great to find skincare products that I love!
Tucker and Tate Socks and Underwear – Last summer, I ordered Tucker and Tate low cut socks for the boys, which were fantastic for them to wear with shorts. I also love that they are thin, which some people might not like, but there is nothing worse than trying to stuff a toddler foot covered in a thick sock into sneakers, ha! Then when Joseph needed some new underwear in the fall, I got him the Tucker and Tate boxer briefs, which are super soft and fit him wonderfully. Highly recommend both (they’ve both worn/washed exceptionally well)!
IKEA Kalas Plates and Bowls – We got a vast assortment of baby plates and snack bowls at my baby shower when I was pregnant with Joseph and we’ve been using them all for these last few years. However, now with two kids flying through plates and bowls each day, we needed more. At least half of our bowls were too small for bigger kid/toddler use and most of our plates were divided, which didn’t even hold a whole sandwich. I looked online and found these plates and bowls from IKEA (bonus that they can be purchased on Amazon!), and they have been amazing – I just bought a second set of each a few weeks ago. We have a set of the cups as well, which are easy to drink from.
Skinnytees Layering Tanks – I originally got one of these from my aunt a few years ago for Christmas, and I’ve recently added a few more colors to my collection. I LOVE that these are stretchy and totally stay put – they are truly the best layering tank I’ve ever tried. (I also have white and black long sleeve layering tees and love them for under cardigans when it’s really cold!)
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer – I KNOW. It’s crazy expensive. My husband surprised me with this for Christmas (I hadn’t even talked about it to him!), and I was wondering how it was going to compare to my regular hair dryer. Dry time is roughly the same, but the biggest, game-changing difference is how my hair LOOKS after using it. I typically just throw in some smoothing serum before I blow dry and with my old hair dryer, I would definitely need some type of smoothing lotion or to straighten it for it to look “presentable”. But with the Dyson? It looks smooth and silky as soon as I’m done drying. I was ASTOUNDED. I love it!
ButcherBox – It’s been a couple of years since I tried ButcherBox for the first time, and if you eat protein on a regular basis, it’s a phenomenal product. They offer grass-fed beef, free-range organic chicken products, heritage breed pork, and wild Alaskan salmon. You can customize your own box from over 21 cuts of meat or select a curated box. Right now they are running a special through the end of the month – get 2 lbs of free wild Alaskan sockeye salmon + free shipping with your first box. Such an awesome deal! [disclosure: I received a recent box as a gift from the ButcherBox team]
Zutano Baby Booties – I asked about stay-put baby socks on Instagram and the overwhelming response was to get Zutano booties, so I hurried over to Amazon and ordered a pair for Isabelle. Oh my gosh, these are so soft and plush, they do NOT come off, and are super cute. I ordered two more colors (they come in a million different shades!); they are perfect for putting on when she is wearing leggings.
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!
