Top 15 Purchases of 2015


2015 has come & gone w/ a quickness & I couldn't help but think back on all I've done & purchased over the year. So, here's my top 15 purchases of 2015!

Celine Trio Bag: Easily one of my favorite bags to date. Fun & quirky yet clean & classic, this bag was by far one of my go-to's over the year. Check out my unboxing, what's in my bag, & review on it here

Sunday Riley 'Luna & Good Genes': I sampled each of these products numerous times & knew they needed to be added to my skincare routine. Both are nighttime restorative treatments to help tighten the skin, build elasticity, & combat hyperpigmentation. Pricey when purchased separately but this set is perfect starter kit!

Skyline Tufted Bed: I finally put on my big girl pants & purchased a new bed back in October. Without-a-doubt step one into real adulthood. LOL. More deets here.  

Chanel Mini Flap Bag: It goes without saying that every girl, or almost every girl, wants to get her hands on a Chanel bag. Well, this summer I was blessed {after being on a 6-month waitlist} to get my hands on the patent mini flap & couldn't be more pleased. More deets here

Plane Tickets to the Dominican Republic & Paris: 2015 marks the first year I traveled to two countries in one year. In May I rode horses & ATVs through the villages & plantain fields of Dominican Republic & in September I stuffed my face w/ freshly baked croissants & French onion soup for 11 days in Paris. God is SO good & I can't wait to experience the destinations He has for me in 2016, -hopefully Africa-! {Pictures from my trips here!}

Vogue Paris September Issue: While in Paris, I picked up the September issue of Paris Vogue. Definitely an issue I'll have & cherish forever. Oh, & it came w/ this cute shirt too! 

Stan Smith Sneakers: I won't even go IN on how much I've been wearing these sneakers! They made for the perfect walking shoes in Paris & frankly, if they weren't sold out practically everywhere, I'd definitely get my hands on another pair. Last seen here & here

Body Shop Tea Tree Toner: I started using this toner after hearing all the rave reviews about it on Youtube. If you're on the oily side, this toner is perfect for getting all the extra dirt & oil from underneath your skin. It can be a bit drying but I it's for sure a "holy-grail" product for me!

Black Wool Hat: simply said, I couldn't get enough. A fall/winter must-have for sure.

Louis Vuitton Empreinte Cles: I purchased this SLG {small leather good} whilst in Paris & it has become my everyday wallet since then. Big enough for my needs but small enough to fit any & everywher. See it live here & here

Hermes Clic Clac H & Hapi 3 Bracelets: These were also purchase in Paris & they've been staples in my jewelry collection since then. 

Karen Walker 'Starburst' Sunglasses: There's something about Karen Walker sunnies that I just can't get enough of. These are my third pair & if I'm being really honest, there's bound to be a fourth. 

Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Peel Pads: Like everything else I implement into my skincare routine, I sampled these brightening peel pads after hearing {and eventually seeing} what all the hype was about! It's a quick 2-step overnight treatment that helps clear pores & uneven skin texture—but without irritation. Love em'!
