Happy New Year Friends! We have been so busy around here that I’m just now catching my breath and wanting to share with you some of my favorite birthday items I picked up for my birthday. It is definitely harder when your birthday falls so close to Christmas, but I like to make sure I’m giving my birthday just as much attention as the holidays. Can’t quite control when you are born, can you? So this year, I was looking for new timeless products that I could add to my collections and I have to say I think I’ve done it.
Here is what this Birthday Girl is loving…
Barrington Gifts Crosby Zipper Wallet. You’ve seen my love of Barrington Gifts for quite a while as I have 2 of the St. Anne Totes. They also have a zippered tote version too! I’ve loved my gingham tote for so long and now my plaid tote for winter. I knew it was time for another piece and the Crosby Zipper Wallet is the newest addition. It zips all the way around and holds everything you need! Sometimes I just run into the store with my wallet and keys when I don’t want to carry a big tote in. My totes have held up incredibly well that I knew the wallet would be just as durable. Fabulous new addition. Thank you to Barrington Gifts for the birthday treat, it goes with me everywhere!
Dermalogica. I’m always in the market for quality skincare and I’m excited to say that over the holidays I was invited to be a Dermalogica Partner! They sent me a fun goodie box of their favorites to try and let me say I’m hooked! It’s completely different than any other skin collection I’ve tried in the past. There is a Precleanse almost like an oil to use before you wash, then the Special Cleansing Gel. After you’re all clean, follow up with the Daily Microfoliant which comes in a powder format and you make a paste, and then finish up with the Phyto Replenish Oil before I put on my moisturizer. My skin has felt clean, soft and hydrated which is always a struggle in the winter. I’m excited to continue to share with you this year all the amazing products they have to offer!
Fabletics. I completely get the hype about Fabletics now! Fabletics was amazing and sent me 2 outfits to try on my new fitness journey. I lived in them all over winter break and I’m obsessed with the purple hoodie! It is so light weight, love the mesh sides and I feel so put together running around town. I now feel like one of those gals who actually looks super cute in their athleisure. You can join too and get 2 pair so leggings for $24. I have to confess, I didn’t have any of the leggings with the phone pocket and seriously, where have they been all my life? I feel like that’s all I want to wear now! See, cool mom status right there!
And that pocket! It holds my iPhone XR. That’s a big pocket for one big phone!
I tend to go all black and grey at the gym OR go full on bright color. I love that I have both options with Fabletics and excited to continue to share looks with you as I begin my new fitness journey. For reference I am wear all 1X which is their size 18. I could probably have done an XXL as well or even size down to a XL.
Leota. – Even though I don’t have to dress up for work like I used to, I still find myself going to quite a few events where dressier wear is required. Leota was so kind as to send me some amazing dresses that kept me stylish through the holiday season. The Felicity Bracelet Sleeve Ruffle Wrap Dress is perfect for a holiday fun. I had it ready to go for NYE!
And of course while we were taking photos, we had to get some new head shots in this gorgeous blue animal print dress. I knew this was a winner when I saw it on the website. It’s just a twist on a classic and it is so versatile. You may be seeing me wear it on a TV near you soon! I also love that Leota also offers a plus size option. I teeter between both sizes with a XL/16W, so I have flexibility of both. I went with the 1X in this style but they also offer it in standard sizing. I would have been comfortable in an XL too!
Rothys. Meghan Markle wins. I’ve always been a Tieks lover, but when I found the pointy flat from Rothys, well I didn’t look back. For my birthday Jeff picked up the Leopard pair for me, and I fell in love. I lucked out with a $20 coupon and ordered a navy blue pair too. I wear so much navy, I was shocked to find I didn’t have any blue shoes in my closet! You can get $20 off your first pair too. I’m so tempted to get the Camo Loafers, I just love the orange detail!
So there you have it, some of my favorite birthday treats from this year. I’m excited to continue to partner with many of these amazing brands and share with you what they have to offer in the new year! Any favorites for you this year?
