What We Bought This Month

And just like that, it’s December! Thanksgiving came and went and Team LIY is officially in Holiday Mode. November included us filling our carts with more items that caught our eye from the trusty internet – thanks alot, Black Friday + Cyber Monday! From heated vests to hydrating shampoo – we are sharing what we hit checkout on the past month! Who knows, you might find yourself hitting checkout too! 😉

Heated Vest [true to size, wearing in small]

Where has this vest been all of my life? Being an Indiana native, I feel like it’s a sin I haven’t owned this up until 36 years of age. This thing is amazing if you are spending any time outside in the cooler months. It comes with a rechargeable battery pack [no batteries necessary] that plugs into an interior pocket and then with one press of a button on the vest, it heats up everywhere [even in the neck!] It’s a delightful and awesome gift to give anybody in your life! Here are more options for men and women!

Down to Earth Crew Sweatshirt [TTS, wearing in M] // XTra Hold-Up Leggings [TTS, wearing in L]

Do yourself a favor and check out these leggings! They are SO soft, and don’t feel like an aerobic exercise to get into them, yet somehow have great hold (just like the name promises)!

Skinny Jeans [true to size, wearing in extra short, 23] // Boots [TTS]

Can’t stop won’t stop buying Abercrombie jeans! They continue to be my favorite and fit my petite (4’11”) frame the best.

Faux Hydrangeas

Plant Propagation Station [Color A: 3 Bulb Vase]

Rattan Coat Hanger Rack

Fabric Advent Calendar

My first time doing an advent calendar and I am so excited to start this tradition with my two year old!

Revlon Colorstay Overtime Lipstick [color: unlimited mulberry]

Pureology Hydrate Shampoo + Conditioner

My hair stylist recommended this product to me to help with my dry hair and so I immediately purchased it. Not only does it help hydrate and make my hair feel silky, smooth it also smells like I’m stepping into a spa every time I use it!

Clarifying Shampoo // Scalp Scrub // Soothing Oil

This one’s for my fellow dry, flaky, scalp ladies – it happens to the best of us! 😉 Good news. We just hit publish on a blog post reviewing some of the top scalp care products [you can read the post here!]! If you struggle with product buildup [likely caused by dry shampoo, texture sprays, hair sprays, etc.] a detox shampoo and scalp scrub have been LIFE CHANGING for me. I use the detox shampoo about every other wash, or once a week, followed by a soothing oil before bedtime! My scalp has never been happier!

Juliette Has a Gun

After searching for a new perfume, I ordered the travel size version of this spray on a whim after seeing it as a top seller on Sephora’s website and O.M.G. it’s my new favorite fragrance. It’s light and not too overpowering, perfect for those of us with sensitive noses! I prefer warm, spicy scents and totally fell in love with it! If you’re a fan of Le Labo, give this one a try!

Squalane + Retinol Night Serum

After trying and loving other Biossance products (see what I love and why here!). This serum has a duo of time-release retinol and retinal, working to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, discoloration, and texture, with minimal irritation and blends to hydrate skin & boost radiance. YES PLEASE TO ALL OF THAT.
