First of all, definitely take a quick read of our favorite things from 2020 - they are still great picks!
After the whirlwind that was 2020, we looked to 2021 for some kind of normalcy. We got a bit closer, but we are hopeful for more adventures in 2022! Here are some of our favorite things from 2021 that we discovered (and cherished).
Scent Your Space
Your home is your sanctuary, and whether you are WFH or not, you still want it to be as relaxing and stress free as possible. Scent has the ability to transport us, and maybe even just help us breathe a sigh of relief. The Petit Grain Candle from Le Labo was our go to - and favorite item to gift all year long. Who wouldn’t want to surround themselves with the beautiful scent of orange blossoms?
It Just Cannot Be Denied
As we’ve grown to understand the benefits of CBD for reducing stress, helping with sleep, and even relieving pain, we discovered the Wild Berry CBD Gummy from Lord Jones. These particular gummies are also chic and hip - and insanely instagrammable.
I Scream, You Scream
Don’t we all scream for ice cream? When you’re not near a Milk Bar flagship store, the next best thing is to order it online. Our favorite? Milk Bar Cereal Milk Ice Cream. Curl up on the couch with a spoon and turn on your favorite Netflix.
For those times when you want to get dolled up and go to dinner, or just feel good for yourself, add the Oribe Gold Lust Nourishing Hair Oil before blow drying or styling. We love this hair oil because it adds shine, softness, and it smells divine.
Joggers for Non-Joggers
Looking for the softest (and cute) pair of joggers to wear at home or to run quick errands? The Vuori Performance Joggers have been our favorites of 2021, and we all own them in several colors.
It All Starts with a Good Foundation
We’re all focused on clean beauty, and when we find a brand that does it right, we love to share it. The Westman Atelier Vital Skin Foundation Stick has been our go-to for a flawless base. You can also schedule a live virtual session with an expert to help you pick your shade.
Fashion from Head to Toe
Finally, some boots that are both chic and warm! We love all things Marc Fisher but these Marc Fisher Shearling Boots are perfect for après ski or running errands on a chilly day. And they won’t break the bank.
Tag it & Track it
Never lose your keys, wallet, or essential items ever again with Apple Air Tags. This was our go-to gift for all the teenagers (and husbands) in our lives.
Undergarments for All
This one’s for everybody! SKIMS Fits Everybody Collection is made from the softest material and comes in every color and size imaginable. Finally, a lingerie line that is actually comfortable and 100% lives up to the hype.
It's Wine O'Clock
Pinot Noir has always been a varietal fave because its light, yet spicy, and can be paired with so many dishes. It’s also our go to for a cozy winter evening by the fire. While it’s hard to beat a pinot from Willamette, Oregon, Kosta Browne Pinot Noir is hands-down the best pinot from Sonoma Valley. Salut!
