Kicking off the new year with a retrospective was a unique was to start 2023 but I wanted to share one more year in review post. In the last twelve months I have bought dozens of items in store hundreds of items online – these are my best purchases of 2022. I still love all of my picks from My Best Fall Finds: Purchases and Gifts but only am including one in this yearly review.
Putting together this recap was more difficult than I would have thought particularly because I have placed more than 100 Amazon orders in 2022 – not just me, things for our UK wedding celebration, food, household staples, birthday and Christmas gifts, etc. However after lots of combing through receipts and cross checking my closet, these are my best purchases of 2022.
Chelsea Peers Navy Zebra Classic Pyjama Set – These pjs are sSO warm and cozy. They are from a New York based company but I only found out about them this year as they are available at John Lewis and I might just need a second pair.
Stella + Ruby Leaf Dangle Earrings – These gold dangle earrings continue to be a go-to and I love wearing them with my hair up or down.
OLAPLEX No.5 Bond Maintenance Conditioner – pricey but amazing. I mentioned this product’s cousin in my Fall recap but the conditioner has been doing great things for my hair and I don’t know why I did not get it sooner!
SeventhStitch The Art of Fine Living Pintuck Duvet Cover – There is something amazing about luxe sheets and this 100% Percale Cotton Quilt Bedding has such a subtle pattern and looks great in our bedroom.
Knomo London Beauchamp 14″ Laptop Backpack in Pine – The best selling backpack from London based brand Knomo is my new go-to-work bag. It fits my laptop, is a combination of leather and splash-resistant nylon, and I love the padded straps plus the green hue, the pine, is such a fun pop of color.
Cupshe Women’s V Neck Ruffled One Piece Swimsuit – I bought this suit for our trip to the Canary Islands in July and it is flattering while holding everything in place. There is a reason it has more than 20,000 five star reviews on Amazon it still amazes me that it is less than $35.
Wahson Velvet Counter Bar Stools in Teal– This set of stools add such a great pop to our kitchen and the combination of the gold and teal is oh so pretty, even on dark and dreary London days.
So many great purchases! There were some other favorites as well like my NIKE Women’s Tanjun Running Shoes – this year I purchased a new pair of my favorite classic Nike sneakers but I did not include them as they were not new this year. And there are quite a few bonus items like this 100 Amazing Patterns: An Adult Coloring Book as I spent a lot of time coloring, especially since the twins.
