Favorite Things 2012

OK so I missed The Nester’s Favorite Things 2012 Link-Up but I’m still going for it!  Maybe you’ll find something for that last-minute gift or you’ll know what to spend all those gift cards on next week!

Travel Coffee Cup


Please, please, please dump those metal travel mugs and pick up one of these.  Tastes so much better! 

Neutral Lipstickmarykaywhisper

I went on the hunt for the perfect neutral lipstick from Mary Kay and Whisper won hands down.  It’s my go-to color for everyday.

Hart of Dixie Season 1



I fell in love with the folks of Bluebell this year.  Hart of Dixie Season 2 has been a little sketchy but Season 1 is DVD repeat-worthy.

Mary Kay Tinted Moisturizer

Mary Kay® Tinted Moisturizer With Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20
I started using this during the summer when I didn’t want thick makeup on and I loved it so much I just keep using it. 

Blue Suede Shoes


Unfortunately the exact blue suede shoes I bought from Nine West are no longer available but they do have similar ones available.  I thought I’d only have one or two outfits to wear with these but it turns out they’re extremely versatile.  Who knew?

Leopard Print Shoes


And on that note, my leopard print shoes have gotten more wear than almost any shoe I own this fall.  They work as a neutral and give just about any outfit some extra interest.

Love Does


Love Does just might be my favorite book not just this year, but of all time.  Totally inspiring, worthy of multiple reads, applicable to anyone, this is a must-read book. (My detailed review)


Alrighty, that’s a few of my new favorites from this year.  Would love to hear one of your favorite finds from 2012!
