My Favorite Things of 2015

Wednesday, December 16, 2015

I'm going to be recapping our year chronologically, but I thought I'd start with a roundup of favorites! I did this at the end of summer and really enjoyed the look back. I hope y'all do too!

Favorite Makeup Product:

Urban Decay Setting Spray 

I've always thought that products like this seemed overrated.. like how much can spraying something on your face really make a difference to anything? WELL IT DOES. This stuff makes your makeup look like it was just applied hours later. It's pricey, so I only use it on days that I know specifically that I'll need long wear makeup.. but I can't recommend highly enough.

Favorite Opportunity: Modeling for Southern Weddings (blogged about here)

Southern Weddings
Favorite Personal Moment: Expecting #SweetBabyStrader (blogged about here)

Favorite Travel Moment: Our trip to Italy

Photos from Venice, Cinque Terre, & San Gigminano 

I'm still planning on blogging a recap of each city we visited.. I'll get there haha!

Favorite Book Read: The Selection Series by Kiera Cass

You might just be sick of me raving about this awesome series.. but I can't stop. Haha. By far the best books I read all year. I just can't even say enough how much I enjoyed them. Highly recommend to all. I can't wait for the 5th book!

Favorite Photo:

We can't wait to see our little one again so soon.. and this time we'll be able to see a little profile!

I also really love this photo from a girls trip.. Fall was thriving!

Favorite Restaurant Visited:

This is a lame answer but.. ALL THE ITALIAN FOOD. Yum. Just go somewhere that doesn't have photos of their food on signs or menus, and it's bound to be delicious.

Favorite Skincare Product: 

Clarasonic Mia 2

These are expensive (I got mine with an old wedding gift card to Dillards) but amazing! I've loved how clean it makes my skin.

Favorite Clothing Item:

This fun dress by Maeve (purchased at Anthropologie) made me feel so pretty each time I wore it!

Favorite Movie:

The Intern

Anything by Nancy Meyers is my fave.. and this movie was no different. I can't wait until it's out to purchase. Ben and I both really enjoyed watching it!

What were your favorites this year? I'd love to hear! :)


  1. Such a fun post idea! I definitely want to look into that setting spray...I don't normally like to spend so much on products, but it seems like it would be great to have! You had such an exciting year, can't wait to see what 2016 has in store!

  2. Love this idea for a post and everything you shared! :) I didn't get to see The Intern but wanted to. I'm a big Nancy Meyers fan! :)

  3. My favorite thing to share this year was your post on the cash envelopes. I shared it with several people I talked to that love Dave Ramsey (or were looking at getting debt free) but could not get the cash envelopes to work for them. I am back on your blog now printing out 2 copies of that post: one for a very young couple that are currently on their honeymoon and the other for close friends(married less than a year and he is deployed). We use your system regularly and have our teenage son in charge of the cash envelopes so he can learn about finances. Thank!!

  4. Oh my goodness, I may have to do a post like this sometime soon! Great idea! That setting spray sounds wonderful- I may just have to splurge;) Sounds like you've had a great year!

  6. I loveeee my Clarisonic also! Its definitely my holy grail product!

  7. What an exciting year! You guys have so much to look forward to in 2016! Can't wait to see how it all goes!
