In no particular order..

ONE. Lele Sadoughi Headbands

If you’ve followed me even a short time, you know I LOVE Lele Sadoughi headbands. So much so I’ve purchased four this year and wear them at least once a day. After I cut my hair short in June, I wanted a way to keep my hair out of my face, and since I can’t put it up in a ponytail, headbands became my go-to. And let me tell you, I will probably never buy another brand because Lele Sadoughi headbands DO NOT HURT MY HEAD. I will wear mine all day long with zero discomfort, and sometimes I even forget I have one on. I’ve linked several in the shop the post section.

TWO. YSL Medium Lou Lou Puffer

This bag was an unexpected yearly fav. I say that because I didn’t realize how much use I would get out of it. It’s made of a super soft leather and I was worried it would scratch with regular wear. But it’s worn beautifully! It goes with just about everything, is so chic, lightweight, and fits a ton. You can easily carry a makeup bag, full size wallet, umbrella, keys, and extras.

THREE. Colleen Rothschild Mandelic Acid Radiance Serum

I’ve been using this serum for months and it’s become an integral part of my nighttime routine. It’s a super gentle exfoliator you can use every day. It leaves my skin feeling radiant and very smooth. It’s a really easy product to incorporate to your usual skincare lineup.

FOUR. Chanel Liquid Lipstick (favorite shade Merry Rose)

MOST USED LIP PRODUCT EVERRR. I started using Chanel liquid lipsticks to prevent mask transfer and I fell in love. Merry Rose is by far my favorite color, so much so I’m on my second tube. These liquid lipsticks are a must for weddings or events as they wear all day long. No joke! You apply the color, and then seal it with the gloss for smooth, longgg lasting coverage.

FIVE. Golden Goose Sneakers

I have definitely become a fan of Golden Goose sneakers this year! I didn’t really understand the hype at first, but now that I wear them almost every day, I get it. The comfort level is great – I never even wear socks with mine, and they wear really well. It might be confusing to some that they come distressed.. why buy dirty shoes?! But I actually love that I don’t have to worry about messing up expensive footwear. I’m a habitual shoe scuffer haha. I’ve had several people ask me if they are really worth buying, and my answer is always, “Yes! Ifff you have the money to splurge.” If not, there are plenty of cute comfy sneakers out there.

SIX. Ardell Naked Lashes 424

I love these lashes so much I order them in 20’s (thank goodness they are affordable). They look super natural, much like a lash extension, and give just enough oomph to the eye. Ardell actually just sent over their new 425 naked lashes and omg they might be a contender with 424. A little bit thicker and longer, but still very wearable.

SEVEN. Hot Tools Blow Dryer Brush (small head)

This may sound dramatic, but this hair tool is life changing! Especially if you have short hair. I have very thick hair and it can be hard to get it to curl under with a blow dryer and straightener only. If you’ve never used a blow dryer brush before, it gives you the ability to dry and shape your hair easily without having a brush in one hand and a blow dryer in the other. It gives the hair so much volume and smooths my hair so much so that I don’t have to use my straightener nearly as much. I have the smaller brush head, and even preferred the size when my hair was longer. Trust me, you will thank me later!

EIGHT. Baccarat Perfume

This perfume smells like cotton candy! I found the scent while on an escalator in New York City with friends last year, and loved it so much I went back to the store to find out what it was. Turns out several of my friend use it and everyone basically keeps it as their little secret haha. It’s definitely pricey but I love it so much I’ve purchased the small bottle, large bottle, and the travel set because I can’t stand not to have it with me.

NINE. Laneige Lip Mask

This lip mask is a must-have! I put this on at night, and in the morning my lips feel super hydrated. It’s become an integral part of my bedtime routine!

TEN. 6-Carat Cubic Zirconia Earrings

I own several pairs of these earrings! I always order a new pair during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale because I wear them 99% of the time. The 6-carat have become my favorite since they make such a statement! The naming is sort of misleading as each earring is 3-carats. So the name is the combined size. I also love that if for some reason one got lost, cost wise, it wouldn’t be the end of the world!


I hope you all enjoyed this 2020 TOP TEN FAVORITES recap! It was so much fun putting it together, and also filming a video for IGTV that I included in this post. Make sure to stop by my blog SHOP.. I recently updated all of the tabs with my most used products.

Wishing all of you a very happy New Year’s Eve!
