My Favorite New Beauty Products of 2018




This post contains affiliate links.

I cannot believe that 2019 is only a couple of hours away! Crazy that 2018 went by so quickly... I mean seriously, where did it go?! It feels like yesterday that Justin and I were moving back to VA.

I asked on Instagram which people would prefer to see... a 2018 Beauty Favs or an IG Round-up, and beauty favs won! So today I'm sharing my TOP TEN NEW BEAUTY FAVS OF 2018. I say new, because they were all new to me, not necessarily new to the market, if that makes sense. There are so many amazing products and I could have gone on forever, so that's how I ultimately decided.

So Many After Christmas Sales

It's time for after Christmas sales and OH, BOY, there are there so many!

At the end of this post, you'll find TONS of sales from various retailers with discount codes and links to make your shopping easy. I know I'm planning on snagging a couple of things on super sale. It's seriously like Black Friday all over again. I don't know about you, but I can hardly keep my email cleaned out with all of the deals & steals coming through. 

But first, before all the sales... a fun styled graphic sweatshirt!

Have A Very Merry Christmas

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

I can't believe it's finally here! I hope you're spending today with family and friends, with lots of hot cocoa/coffee, cuddles, and old Christmas classics. I'll be watching A Christmas Story in my pj's ALL DAY LONG. If you've been following along on Instagram, you know that Heidi and I traveled with my family to Kentucky on Saturday. I was in California two years ago for Christmas, and northern VA last year. I'm all about tradition so it's amazing to be home in Lexington for the holidays again!

Officially FOUR days until Christmas!

I feel like December definitely flew by me but I'm always ready for Christmas to roll around. I'm prepping the house for my parents and their pups to come today for a quick one-night stay... and then we are off to Kentucky! I am SO excited to see my grandparents and my aunt, uncle, and cousins. I haven't been home to Lexington in two whole years so I cannot hardly wait!

T-minus SIX days until Christmas friends!

Where in the world did time go?! I don't know about you all but I've definitely been perusing tons of amazing deals and items that can still be snagged before the holiday. I'm SO excited to spend Christmas with my family this year - I literally can't wait! I'm planning to take several chic basics on my trip home that all go well together paired in different ways. Much like the pieces in today's post that are perfect for all sorts of occasions and come at various, affordable price points.

My entire holiday outfit is from Walmart!

I've heard your requests for more athleisure wear, so that's what today is all about! There is seriously nothing better than a great pair of versatile (& comfortable) running shoes that you can use to "run" around town... i.e. all of us who aren't really runners but still like our snazzy shoes to wear with leggings. The pair I'm sharing with you today from FinishLine.com is hands down my fav of all time

Goodness Gracious! I did not mean to take almost an entire week off from blogging. I think this is the longest I've gone without a post, maybe ever. If you've been following along on Instagram, you know Justin and I were on a trip to Las Vegas for the past several days. We went for J's birthday and also his stepdad who turned 50. It was so much fun because not only did Justin and I go, but also his family and their friends! We had a blast and it was really nice to unplug for a couple of days.

My Favorite Cardi On Sale

T-minus 19 days until Christmas! 

I've been holding on to these pictures for quite some time now and can't believe I've yet to share. Due to all of the cyber week and holiday hustle and bustle, I almost totally forgot! Which would have been such a shame because this is one of my favorite cardigans of all time. It comes in eight colors and is currently ON SALE for $34! So naturally, I bought two (also in black, both xs).

Can you believe it's already December and Christmas is only 22 days away?! Someone pinch me! How can it be? This entire year has seriously flown past me faster than any year before it. I don't know about you all but I could use a couple more days just to get prepared for the holiday. Luckily, I've done most of my gift shopping, but I still need to wrap everything up and have lots of year-end to-do's to check off my list! Like cleaning out files, catching up on emails, finishing up campaigns, etc...

Today I wanted to share some more winter wear, because it has already gotten so cold! I think we hit high 20's last week at one point... brrrrr!! Which means it's time to pull out all the cute pom beanies, padded coats, and faux fur boots.
