Things I Bought December 2020

Time to do my FINAL round of things I bought this month for 2020. I legit can not believe how fast this year went and how much time we all spent at home!

In a surprise to no one, I got some goodies from Amazon this month, so let's start with that...

Milk Frother, For whatever reason I have been craving lattes and other yummy frothy drinks. This one came highly recommended by a blogger I follow (The Skinny Confidential) swears by this one. It is really great, I love that it can go hot and cold as well as how it will automatically turn off when it is done frothing. trust me when I say it is not na eyesore to leave on the counter, easy to use, clean and will give you the fix for a craving of a lattee without spending $4.50 per cup.

Puffer Jacket, this was an easy $67 jacket from Amazon. I got it because I thought I'd wear it to run errands, go to workout classes, just easy quick outings. However, I got it and tried it on, I wasn't totally in love with it so I ended up returning it. Overall, it is an inexpensive alternative if you are looking for a different jacket to quick throw on. It does come in a ton of colors! I initially went with the black because its an easy classic, a pop of pink jacket cold be super fun as well!

Thats What She Said, yep, a silly game to play with my girlfriends. It is sort of like Cards Against Humanity. If you are with a silly group of people, I promise this will be a crowd pleaser.

Ice cube trays, I know super boring but it was something I needed! For some reason I only had big cubes for cocktails and tiny cubes that would fit in water bottles. This is a set of four ice cube trays. They all have tray lids on them so you can stack them and it's super easy to get the actual cubes out of them.

Gold Lamp, I was in desperate need of some additional light in my apartment. Since the sun sets so early! I hated sitting on conference calls and only having my kitchen light that would sort of light up my face but my background would be totally dark. I ended up getting two of these and they were so easy to assemble and give off the perfect amount of light! I have them on the sides of my couch! They are absolutely perfect to help add some nice lighting to the apartment and make sure its not too bright!

Well, it wouldn't be a month if I didn't have to replace a few things on Sephora! I needed to replace quite a few things as well as get a new cleanser.

PAT McGRATH LABS Sublime Perfection Concealer in shade L6. This has quickly turned into my favorite under eye concealer. It does an amazing job at covering my dark circles not using a ton of product. It lasts a few months, does a nice level of coverage and is not cakey.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Natural Skin Perfector Broad Spectrum SPF 30, in shade 2W1 Neutral for $47. It is my favorite tinted moisturizer, it is a nice level of coverage with the SPF 30 protection in it. I highly recommend this product as part of a morning skincare routine.

Grande CosmeticsGrandeLASH™ - MD Lash Enhancing Serum, This is one of my holy grail products and is $65. I put it on every evening before I go to bed and every morning after I wash my face. It does a great job at making sure my lashes are nice full and long! Even though it is a bit pricier, it will last about 3 months.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare All-In-One Cleanser With Toner, this is $32 and an all in one cleanser with toner in it. They stopped selling my favorite morning face wash (OleHenriksen vitamin C) so I needed a new go to for every morning. I really like that it has toner in the formula. This is a bit different of a product because you need to apply it to dry skin with dry hands and massage into your face for about 15 seconds. So far its working out well & could possibly be my new go to morning product!

Last but not least, Lululemon was having a good sale so I replaced a few goodies.

Enlite Bra Z ip Front High Support, sorry but supporting the girls is super important. you need to make sure the sports bra is a good one but that also means you need to spend a pretty penny on it. I was lucky to be able to get it for $39 instead of the standard $108. I really love this sports bra. It is so comfortable, easy to put on and take off and really supports the girls.

On the Fly Sock 3-Pack, I go through phases of getting a ton of socks then wearing through all of them. I'm in the current wave of needing to replace socks. This pack of three is super comfortable and I was able to get them for $19 instead of $28.

Up for Down Time Short Sleeve, I adore this shirt. It is so soft and flowy. I typically just wear it around the house and just to relax. I really like the high low that happens on the sides of it. I was able to score this for $29 instead of $68. This one is sold out but I linked a similar one.

Resolute Warmth Jacket, I am so excited to have gotten his jacket. It is so comfortable, easy to throw on and go do any errands. In addition to that, it is waterproof and reversible! I have been wearing this all over town recently. I was able to get this for $1390 instead of $300. This one is sold out but I linked something similar to it!

Overall, I got these goodies and a few Christmas gifts! What are some of your favorite goodies from this month?
