I love gift guides. They're fun and cute.... but a lot of times not quite for me. My family has always been a one gift per person kind of family, yes a good gift, but one gift only. It's always kept it kind of simple and to be honest I like it this way. So instead of compiling a few different guides I decided I wanted to put together a list of my absolute favorite things form 2017. You know like Oprah...but not as good because I can't give these things to a room full of strangers for free.
It is my pleasure to present you my favorite things from this year:
The Lust List 2017
The Deep Repair Eye Serum from True Botanicals || This rich eye serum sinks right in to the skin, the way a serum is suppose to. There is science and quality behind this product and it's truly effective.
Josh Rosebrook Nutrient Day Cream with SPF 30 || This is officially the only makeup I wear. This nutrient rich day cream glides on to the skin with ease and leaves a nearly flawless complexion while brightening and correcting you skin tone.
The Youth Dew by May Lindstrom || When it comes to face serums this guy is a Porshe. Mixed with delicious oils and enzyme botanicals there is nothing quite like this product. It does what it says it does in it's name, it gives you youth.
*Find both the Youth Dew and Nutrient Day Cream locally at the Take Care Shop
Skyn Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels || I love using these eye masks once a week to refresh my 32 year old eyes. You only wear these bad boys for ten minutes but they really do refresh tried eyes.
Kiehl's Ultimate Hand Salve || This is hands down the best hand cream out there. Especially in the winter. It will take your hands from desperation super high way to silky smooth in the matter of wears.
M-61 Power Glow Peel || I stumbled across these peels by accident after consulting one of the ladies at Blue Mercury and holy cow are these awesome. I mean...I woke up one morning to the best skin I've ever had...sure I paired it a little with my regular routine, but still AHHHMAZING.
These products can be found locally at Anthropologie Old Town, Kiehls Georgetown, and Blue Mercury
Vince Warren Suede Slip On || I bought these shoes on a whim....it was the best whim of my life. They are cozy, stylish, and overall perfection. There is an ease that comes from wearing them as well as a little bit of needed height.
The Lyle Top by Reformation || In the last year Reformation has become my favorite clothing brand. Not only is there mission beautiful, but the clothes are instant classics in your closet. I love the Lyle top, I have it in 3 colors//it's the perfect top to dress up or dress down. And it's currently on S A L E ! !
New Balance Fresh Foam Cruz || I'm on my feet a lot, like all day and these sneaks are exactly what the juice doctor ordered on long production days.
The only one of these products I've been able to find locally are the Vince Slippers//The store in City Center carries them
Natalie Martin Collection || I love every dress Natalie Martin cooks up. They are all made from high quality "ingredients" and fit the body in an effortlessly chic way. Every time I wear a piece from one of her collections I'm transported to the calm cool beaches of the pacific ocean and find my self enamored with her all over again. Yes these dresses are pricy...but yes, they will last you a lifetime.
LA Dodgers Ball Cap || I'm not from LA, my grand mother was and so are my cousins. Yet still I am not from LA. I do however love a good ball cap and the LA cap is the absolute best there is. The design is that classic baseball design that takes you back to the days that saw Jackie Robinson step up to the bound. It's the perfect put on and go.
The Slim Boyfriend Jeans by Madewell || If there is one thing JCrew's cool little sister company does perfect....well besides everything, it's the jeans. Madewell jeans are like stepping your legs into magic. They fit so well, and they are made so WELL! I was gifted the Slim Boyfriend by my pals in Georgetown for an event we did and I wear them every day I can.
Natalie Martin collection is best online, from her site. LA hat can be found at Urban in GTWN, and Slim Boyfriend jeans at most Madewells.
Julie Nolan Constellation Necklace || I wear this necklace daily, it is just so beautiful and delicate. I've also never had so many compliments on a jewelry piece. It's simply stunning and keeps my stars aligned daily.
The Kensington Back Pack by STATE || This companies mission is awesome, you buy bag you give a bag. They are simple, they fit only what you need and are elegantly designed. I've all but stop carrying a purse thanks to this sleek backpack... it's also great if you ride a bike everywhere.
Soma Water Bottle || I bought this water bottle on a whim, truth be told it was only $7 bucks when I got it. I like how light weight it is and how it can easily be thrown in a bag...unlike other water bottles I know.
You can pick up the Nolan necklace at Salt and Sundry, the Kensington Backpack at Nordstroms Pentagon Row, and Soma only online I believe.
Eat Beautiful || Written by International Make Up Artist Wendy Rowe this book is perfect for anyone looking to dive into the world of eating food to nourish your skin.
Crystal Muse || I love energy and re-energizing your physical self and crystals are the perfect way to physically recharge, ward off, heal, and attract. This book not only breaks down what crystals do what, but it also gives you rituals to enhance your magical gems.
The Beauty Chef || Just like Eat Beautiful this book focuses on eating for beauty...both externally and internally by focusing on the gut. This is for you out there that truly love the idea of nourishing your gut.
Woman Code || I first learned of Woman Code from Lacy Phillips and got my hands on this immediately. This guide will help support and supercharge your lady bits...all of them!
Unblocked || I have been doing a lot of personal work the last half of this year. Mainly stemming from two energy liftings I went through at the end of last year which lifted a relationship that no longer served me...and then a second lifting that dealt more with my feminine energy, in particular my relationship with my mother. After completing Lacy's Reparenting I can safely say...this woman's manifestation work is the TRUTH. And her Unblocked series is the perfect way to enter the world of universal expansion.
Four Sigmatic || Coffee is tough on my body, so you can imagine my happiness when I found Four Sigmatics Mushroom Charged Coffee. Not only is this coffee easy on my system but I can it drink it straight without adding any kind of creamer or sugar, whooooppp!! It has delicious fruity undertones too. I can't live with out this
Yeti 10 oz Rambler || Nothing cuter of better to keep my coffee hot, for hours. Also it doesn't spill... I'm accident prone and this rambler is my savor.
Reishi || MUSHROOMS are magic. And this one helps to calm you down at the end of long days, it'll boost your immune system and reduce stress. I mean it's pure magic.
Ghee || There are many trendy Ghee's around town but this one is my favorite. It's creamy and delicious. You can add this lactose free, clarified butter to carbs, veggies, bullet proof coffee and eggs! It really is the perfect addition to anyones life.
There we have it my most favorite things of 2017! Hope you all enjoy. If you have any questions leave a comment below, send me a message... or just stop me in the street to talk about it!
