I'm not usually one to share a bunch of favorites posts, even though I love reading (and watching, on Youtube) the ones other people post. My annual roundups are filled with things that stood out over the course of a full year, and I don't take the "favorite" title lightly. When I find a favorite, I stick with it. I'm not one of those consumers who likes to try new things just because. If i'm trying something new, it's usually because my old faithful has been discontinued or I can't find it anywhere around town.

Shelter in place, however, has given me time to appreciate all the things around my home that I love. It's a short list, but the best ones are!

Shears. This was in my last favorites post, but man oh man, they're still coming in clutch. You know all that cooking we're all doing right now? These make it so much easier. Chopping veggies and meats takes too long sometimes, but cutting them up? Easy peasy.

Personal Care:

Diptique Body Wash. Body wash has never been my style. I prefer a good, old-fashioned bar of dove soap and a soft washcloth. But. I recently found some samples I had stashed away, and I've been using them as a way to have small moment of opulence at the end of the day. The scent has such staying power, and I go to bed smelling like the inside of a spa.

Glossier Balm Dot Com. I keep one on my nightstand and one in my desk. I get the hype now. I get it.

Costco Joggers. Lots of people are posting about all this luxury loungewear, but my trusty old joggers from Costco easily some of the most comfortable clothes I've ever worn. 


Steam Mop. This is a very new purchase, but I already can't understand how I've gone so long without one. My floors were never clean before, I'm convinced. The past four years of cleaning floors in the house have been a lie tbh.
