Top 10 Favorite Things from 2017!

Hey you guys! I've missed you all! Am I the only one that has the worst time catching up after Christmas & all the holidays? With the weather, Nick has been home from school so much. I enjoy when he's home but I also start to miss my routine. & I'm just continuously asking myself "What day is it, again?" But I know soon enough I'll miss the craziness so I'm trying not to complain, and embrace the chaos that is my life currently. 


So I was doing some "work" lol and tried to gather some information on what posts you guys loved the most in 2017 so that I could bring you guys more posts that you enjoy! I was actually sort of surprised by my top posts, most of them weren't decor related. My recipe posts always do really well, this surprised me because I can't cook. But I do like easy recipes that everyone in my family enjoys. We have a wide range of "tastes" and I know sometimes it's super hard to find recipes that everyone actually eats. That's why I like to keep things simple when it comes to sharing recipes with you guys. Other posts you guys enjoyed included my quick "how to's" and cleaning posts. I really actually enjoy the cleaning posts so I was happy about that. What surprised me the most is how many of you guys enjoy the Friday Favorites posts.

I absolutely love doing these with you guys so I was excited you enjoyed them as much as I do! I was thinking about doing a Monthly favorites post but the thing with those is that things are often sold out by the time I get around to sharing my favorites of the month. Doing it weekly keeps me trying new things, and it also keeps things from selling out super quickly. I will continue to do them in 2018! 

This week though, I wanted to share my favorite things from 2018! ALL OF THEM. I tried to limit myself to just 10 things though, because well, these posts can get super long. 

I've shared lots of these items on my Instagram numerous times but they are worth talking about again. I promise!

1. THIS MUG from Sweet Mint Handmade.
You guys loved this mug as much as I did. Actually, you guys just love fall in general. Which, who doesn't? Sweet Mint Handmade is a small shop located near me in Maryland and she makes THE CUTEST mugs! For all seasons and for everyday. 

2. The BEST basic black leggings under $15!

I love these black leggings because they're stretchy, great at hiding the "mom pouch" and the price is AH-MAY-ZING. Especially compared to other high end brands. You can still snag them if you missed out. They're currently on sale for $12. YES YOU GUYS. $12.

3. Cozy Pom Pom Throw.
This super soft & plush cozy pom pom throw was one of my favorite finds from last year! It's under $30 and still available if you love cozy throw blankets as much as me!

4. These Super Stretchy perfectly distressed denim jeans.
I freaking LOVE these jeans! I love that they're distressed but still keep you covered up. They're super stretchy, and fit true to size! 

I am so obsessed with this bedding. It is just so gorgeous and worth every single cent I paid for it. It's super soft, and really snuggly & warm! I debated on this for a year before pulling the trigger and just buying it. I regret not doing it sooner. I'm all about budget friendly decor but I'm also learning that sometimes you have to splurge on certain things. And let's face it, I spend a lot of time in my bed. hahahahahaha.

Not surprised this beauty is on the list honestly, because I need coffee to get me through life. And I know lots of you can relate. My Keurig is a year in a half old and still going strong! I'm excited to tell you guys that it's ON SALE right now for $90 and if you purchase through the link you can get a $20 Target gift card! So that takes this baby down to $70. AND IT IS WORTH EVERY SINGLE PENNY. If Mint isn't your jam, it comes in pretty much any other color you can think of! I'm waiting for them to release a pink one. I might have to upgrade! 

you guys. I know I've talked about these pants SO MUCH. I just can't put into words how much I freaking LOVE them. They are so amazingly soft I bought them in every color. If you didn't snag these comfies yet, you're missing out! They're on sale right now for less than $24.

Is it bad when you're comfy "at home" wardrobe is bigger than your going out wardrobe? Asking for a friend. No but seriously. For the price, these are BY far the coziest and prettiest slippers I've ever owned. The fact that they're this cute makes me feel not so bad about hardly ever putting on real shoes. They're still available if for some reason you don't already own them;) They're under $25 bucks! 

SO. Basically, if you own mugs, you need this mug rack. It is THE BEST hands down and it comes in white & copper! I've been debating the copper one just because I love it so much and it's so cheap. It's under $15 and it's small size is great if you don't have a ton of extra space and want extra visual storage. 

This last name pillow is simply stunning in person and pictures don't do it justice! It's such a great way to add a personal touch to any space, and I love how pretty it looks in our master bedroom. It would also make an amazing wedding gift, don't you think? I love supporting small shops when I can and I'm so glad you guys do too!

As I near the end of this list, I love the mix of decor and real life stuff that you guys enjoyed seeing this year. My account sort of shifted from just home decor to more lifestyle and I can't thank you guys enough for accepting that with open arms. You  guys embraced my crazy and my love of ALL things and I'm so thankful for all of you!
I can't wait to continue sharing ALL OF THE THINGS in 2018! 

Thank you so much for popping in today! What was your favorite find of 2018? I'll be doing an Amazon Favorites post soon! Come hang out with me on Instagram or leave a comment for me below. It means so much to me to have you guys here!
