New Year, Some New Loves

New Year, Some New Loves

Happy New Year! The holidays can truly be the most wonderful time of the year, but I think we can all agree that after it’s all over, it’s nice to sit down, relax, and return to (some) normalcy!

I did a little shopping for the brand new year ahead of us, and today I’m sharing the items I’m loving the most. Bonus: most of these are on sale now!

First up, a couple of sweaters I found at Macy’s. Macy’s is having a sale right now – use code WKND for 20% off and WKND25 for $10 off a purchases of $25 or more.

This red frenchie dog sweater is made by Charter Club. Red isn’t a  color I typically wear, but lately I’m trying to incorporate it into my wardrobe a little more. It’s a power color, and studies show it really boosts your confidence when worn. Bonus: red looks good on so many skin tones and is really on trend this year!

Some beautiful added touches are three buttons on one shoulder and black sequins on the dog’s bow.

I’m wearing size Petite S in the picture above.  Although the website suggests it runs large, it runs true-to-size for me.

Note: standard size version here

Talbots has a very similar sweater which is also really cute. It also comes in both petite and standard sizes.


I love the swan print on this sweater, also made by Charter Club. The gray is a great neutral that will go with almost anything. Some of the swans have added sparkle, which is a nice extra touch without being over-the-top.

The website suggests this one runs large as well, but it also runs true-to-size for me.  Unfortunately, this one is only available in petite sizes.


This travel mug is so unique and adorable – and it’s super functional, too! It’s double-walled and made of stainless steel, and it has a vacuum seal to prevent on-the-go spills. S’well has a great reputation for making high-quality, on-the-go drinking products, and I’m really glad they’ve branched out and added patterns to their lineup.

It comes in multiple colors & patterns and is currently on sale for 20% off.

One downside to note: this travel mug is NOT dishwasher safe.


I’ve been looking for the perfect faux fur infinity scarf for awhile now, and I finally found this one!  It’s thick and warm, and best of all, it feels so much more expensive than it was (it’s on sale for just $12 right now!).  I love it so much that I already ordered it in beige, too.


I already featured this one on my Instagram account, but I absolutely love this planner. It’s a little on the pricey side, but so worth it. It’s very well-made with heavyweight (90 GSM) paper, and there’s an amazing yearly planning section in the front to help you crush all your goals in 2018.

My favorite part is that there’s a page dedicated to each day, complete with an hourly schedule side and a “to do” list side.  Each day’s page also includes several helpful sections including your daily “top 3” list,  and areas to write down your daily gratitudes, dinner ideas, and miscellaneous notes.

They also make several other designs and a slightly smaller version, called the “mini”.


Last, I just have to share this penguin bag gift set from Bath & Body Works because the little bag is so wintery and cute. It’s out-of-stock online, but if you can snag one at a local store, it’s on sale! It includes the three mini fragrance mists.  The three fragrance mists can also be purchased individually (in larger sizes).

The scents can work all winter and even year-round, especially the candy apple and vanilla. The coconut mint is my personal favorite – the coconut and mint don’t seem like an obvious combination to me, but it turns out they smell delicious together!
