Best of 2022 – Amazon

It’s always fun to look back at the Amazon purchases made throughout the year. And see which ones I reached for often and which ones missed the mark. These are my favorite and most used purchases this year. Best part, they are all under $50!

  • Hair Dryer – this is the Dyson dupe and I love it. Light weight in size and compact.
  • Travel Pants – these pants are hands down my favorite Amazon clothing purchase of the year. I have two colors, currently debating on a third. They don’t stretch out or wrinkle. The fabric not only feels amazing but looks dressy too!
  • Makeup Brush Holder – I was so tired of my makeup bag being dirty from leftover makeup on my brushes. This little case solves the problem. Tip – order two or three one case is good for just two larger brushes.
  • Wireless Lamp – these are a great look for less, under $40. They light they put off is incredible and I have used indoor and out. Do yourself a favor and order two.
  • Speaker – this little JBL speaker packs a loud punch and is under $30. Not to mention the battery life is the longest of any speaker I have owned. It’s also super small in size, great to travel with.
  • Phone Holder – this little phone clip makes it so easy to watch your favorite shows on an airplane. Great for short flights when you don’t want to pack a tablet. Tip – also works to hold a hat.
  • Tote – the oversized tote that fits it ALL! I love this bag so much I did a reel on it! It’s huge and sturdy. I liked it so much I bought it for my secret santa gift this year.
  • Tennis skirt – I was so sick of spending money on tennis skirts that were just ok. This one fits the bill! Not too short and doesn’t ride up and down. I know have it in a few colors.
  • Travel Bags – these are a GAME changer. I used them for a winter trip to NYC and I was able to pack way more than I could have imagined. Best part, no vacuum required.
  • Hefty Bags – these were a game changer for our move! You can fit SO much in them. Great for linens, clothes etc. Super sturdy too!



I learned about artist Lucie de Moyencourt from a stunning installation for Kips Bay Showhouse (photo above).  I love the uniqueness of her designs and have tried several times to acquire her hard to get pieces, with no luck. She recently launched a small collection in collaboration with Anthropologie and I jumped at the chance to have a few of her designs. The pieces are beautifully made and heavy in weight. The oversized blue and white platter is my favorite piece, can’t wait to style it in my home.

H&M Finds

A recent H&M haul! A random mix, but can’t wait to wear this Spring!

Shop My Favorites – 



Feel Good Floral

In a fabric store at a pretty young age my mom introduced me to Liberty of London. Ever since I have loved their fun, punchy patterns. I’m in the market for a new card case and recently spent far too much time perusing their website. I have these in my cart. Now which pattern to choose?


Fresh Out the Box

I just received these two pieces from Zara Home and know they will be in heavy rotation this fall.  They are SO good! You may not think of browsing Zara Home for clothes, but they get fabulous casual items and shoes! Not too mention the home goods are to die for!!


The In-between

Looking for the perfect transition shoe, not too summery and not boots? These are just about perfect. I have been living in the woven pair since I got them!


Summertime Sandals

I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of leather sandals that I can wear with just about anything. At this point I have ordered and returned at least 10 pairs; color not right, straps too thin, straps too tight… you name it, I didn’t love them, even the most expensive of the pairs.

I had just about given up when I came across this pair of Banana Republic sandals. I received them this week and they are perfect!  I look forward to wearing this classic pair of sandals ALL summer!

PS – Banana Republic always has coupon codes/sales, keep you eye out for the best price!

Prime Finds

I hate to even admit it but I’ve ordered way too many things off of Amazon lately. All of these items are in full rotation. The rattan coasters are the newest arrivals and are perfect for cocktails OR for candles. I am obsessed with the one shoulder swimsuit and leopard sarong, such a high-end look for so much less. My go-to summer swim look! I am not normally a backpack person but I have been riding my bike more and more it is the perfect piece to carry all my things and not take up room in my basket. How cute are these dinner napkins? Perfect for summer entertaining. I personally own all of these fabulous finds and would highly recommend them. What’s in your Amazon cart?




Always looking for new bracelets to add to the stack. These little baubles are so cute and under $20; best part they are on Amazon Prime!
