These are all of my favorite things!
I only recommend products & services that I personally use and absolutely adore!
Most of these are Amazon picks because I got prime two years ago and I am addicted to that 2-day shipping life!
(Honestly, so worth the yearly fee!)
I recommend these items to my friends & family all the time, and now I can share with all of you! <3
This is my current Camera! I bought this when I started blogging so I could have some higher quality images, and so far I’m loving it! I do feel like such an amateur still, but I have a friend who’s been helping me learn, and you know, YouTube videos!
Canon Rebel T5i
This is the memory card I got for my camera — I’ve been recording some videos lately, and I needed something with a lot of storage that was still affordable!
SanDisk 64GB Memory Card
I gave myself a (very) belated birthday present this year, and finally invested in a great computer! Since I was going to commit to this blog, I knew I would need a laptop that didn’t have to be plugged in to work (my old one was 10 years old and functioned like it lol). I was so excited that this one was cheaper than other MacBooks, and it’s so light!

Once I realized that I am as much a computer content hoarder as I am book and stationery hoarder, I also bought myself an external, portable hardrive.
2 Terabyte Portable HardDrive
My INCREDIBLE hardshell case for my MacBook Air! These are the best! This brand has such a great selection of patterns that even though I was set on marble, I had a hard time choosing my favorite! It even came with a matching keyboard cover and a screen protector! Win!

So I am OBSESSED with espresso! Specifically a lungo-sized shot with about 3 drops of liquid Stevia and 3-4 tablespoons of Macadamia Nut Milk (try this and you will be HOOKED — don’t say I didn’t warn you, haha!) This is my Nespresso — best thing I’ve ever owned! I also have the milk frother for when I want to get fancy and make cappuccinos. I can’t believe I ever spent $5 a day at Starbucks — I’m now my own barista, and this ting has already paid for itself several times over!

I also buy my Nespresso capsules on Amazon. I used to buy exclusively from the Nespresso app, but I always had to buy a minimum of 5 sleeves, and I also had to pay shipping or reach a $50 minimum for slow free shipping. Since you know I love my prime 2-day, I found a legit Nespresso retailer on Amazon and started ordering capsules from them! Dharkan is my favorite!

This Milkadamia macadamia milk is INSANE. Super creamy, unsweetened, vegan, and keto-friendly! Delicious!! Be warned — you WILL become addicted to this stuff. Yummy!
Milkadamia Unsweetened 32oz, 2-pack
And this is my Stevia! I love using a dropper, and trust me, 3-4 drops is all you need! My last 4oz bottle lasted a year!
Sweet Leaf Stevia, Sweet Drops 4oz
These are some of my favorite reads of 2018 so far! I will be reviewing some of these in the coming weeks!
Definitely EPIC reads!
This is my hands-down, best moisturizer for my skin type! If you’re dry and have sensitivity issues, this stuff is amazing! The best part is that I used to get this at Target or on Birchbox at $28, and on amazon it’s $20! Huge savings for me! I also buy the mini size for flights!
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
Speaking of flights — These are my travel must-haves!
I LOVE this luggage my London Fog! I’ve been using these three as a matching set, and they have seen me through many, many trips! So classy, I feel like I own Sherlock Holmes’ luggage set! I’ve had these for about 8 years now, and they’re in great shape!

I am a stationery fanatic! I LOVE perusing notebooks, pens, binders, planners and journals at any store that sells them. Even when I know I have too many, there I am buying more! Let’s just say I’ve done all the testing for you! Here are my picks!
These notebooks are my absolute favorite! While at first I didn’t want to spend $5-$7 on a notebook, it’s really important to me that they are made of 100% recycled paper and printed with soy ink!
It’s just a plus that they come in a TON of different whimsical prints!
These are my FAVORITE pens! I go through pens like no one’s business. I prefer it to typing, which gives me 2x as much work, but I’ve made peace with that haha! Also, I always keep a mini notebook in my purse for my ever-growing to-do list, so I need lots of pens everywhere! These come in medium point for less $$, but I am super weird and HAVE to have fine-point pens, always. 🙂

And this is the AMAZING pencil pouch I use for storing my pens — yes, I just raved about a pencil pouch. Other pen-and-stationery-philes (anyone know the word for that?) will understand 🙂 I love this one because it is a patent plastic case with the same material on the inside; so if a pen bursts on you, it’s easy to clean!

I have about 5 planners for 2018… womp womp. I end up buying one planner the December before the year starts, then throughout the year I accumulate more and more because X, Y, or Z isn’t working for me. This is the one that I finally stuck with because it has so many extras! I love the shopping lists in the back that you can tear-out to take on the go, and the layout of the weekly spread is exactly what I need since I like to separate my days by category!
