Best Buys of 2016

Gap Pajamas.  Does anyone else have this problem where they are too tall for normal pajama pants?  Welcome to my world.  I literally had my mother in law sew different fabric on the hem of a pair of Ralph Lauren jammies because I wanted to wear them so badly, but they were high waters on me.  I bought these for myself this Christmas and they are so soft!  They feel kind of like silk, and oh so soft! I might have bought another pair with some Christmas money, because I loved them so much!

Soma Nursing Bras. On my motherhood journey, I have tried a lot of different options for nursing bras.  These are my all time favorite! They usually run a 2 for $60 deal and that is the time to buy!  They have held up well and should last me through another kid for sure. The only bad thing is that they do not offer a black option.  Come on Soma, step up your game here.

Jack Black Energizing Face Buff.  I know this is a product for men, but I love it! Its a deep scrub that really seems to clean the pores out.  I’m not a face expert by any means, but my face is so soft after a good scrub with this!

Norwex Kitchen Cloths. Disclaimer, I do not sell these, but I sure love them!  I have black quartz counter tops that I used to clean with Method spray cleaner and then go back over with a shiner coat to prevent streaks. I dreaded cleaning my counters and was kind of a grinch on what or who I let eat on them.  My friend started selling these cloths, and I was skeptical.  She let me try them on my counters, and I was sold! It cuts my time in half since I don’t have to go over the counters twice!  And these cloths do a great job on my stovetop, cabinets, stainless steel fridge, etc.  I really do love them!

Bath and Body Candles.  I know this is a no brainer.. these candles have been around forever, but I’ve always been a Yankee Candle girl.  Until lately that is.  I stocked up on a good sale at Bath and Body and now love them!  I’m particularly all about the Winter scent (soaps, wallflowers, candles) and Sweater Weather and Flannel and I could go on and on.  Plus they are always on sale and you can use coupons!  win win

Sigma Flat Kabuki Brush. Ok technically I didn’t buy this one.  I received this brush from my girlfriend for my birthday. I’m not sure I would have forked over the money to buy it myself, but it is so nice!  I love how evenly it applies my foundation and how easy it was to use.  I’m not super great at makeup, but this was an easy trick for me to get smooth coverage every day.

Walmart Pick Up. Not technically a product, but have you tried this?? It’s amazing!  I discovered it when Rhett was young, and it was so clutch for me since Rhett hated (ok still hates) his car seat.  I didn’t even have to take him out of the seat!  I order my groceries on my app and then choose when I want to pick them up and they bring them to me.  I don’t even have to leave my vehicle. You feel like you should be paying extra for this service, but it’s free and they don’t accept tips.  I know it’s not available in all areas yet, but hopefully it will be soon.

Mrs. Meyer’s Iowa Pine Scent.  My sister introduced me to Iowa Pine soap when I was visiting her back in October and I am obsessed.  I normally am not a huge pine scent person, but this one is so light and crisp.  It doesn’t overwhelm you and it makes washing dishes so much more delightful (ok bearable).  Unfortunately, this is like egg nog and only available for a limited time in stores, but I stocked up so I can use this dish soap year round at my house.

  1. I love Soma bras. I never tried their nursing ones but love the regular ones! And I love the Mrs. meyer’s peony scent! I’ve never smelt the one you mentioned- I will have to look for it!

    1. I love them! I’m sure they are just like their normal bras though as far as quality. I thought about you the other day because I ran across a company on kickstarter called Ollie Gray who made a pumping bra that you wear normally. It looks awesome, but you’re out of that phase at this point.

  2. I have some old Gap workout pants that I love because they are actually long enough! I totally can relate! I used to order pajamas from Victoria’s Secret, just so they would be long enough…so I’m glad to hear Gap has options too!

    I’m going to have to stock up on Bath & Body Works candles! I am burning through my stash right now, but need some winter scents in my life.
