What We Bought this Month

February 2, 2023


Team LIY

New Year, same online shopping habits – some things never change! πŸ™ˆ Team LIY kicked off 2022 with big goals… and even bigger piles of packages on our doorsteps. Thank you, delivery peeps! While we may have hit “add to cart” more times than we can count, we did come across some great finds along the way! From spring sneakers to naked talk [eye makeup, folks, eye makeup!], these are our favorite purchases of the month: January edition!

Fashion Finds

Erin’s Neon Sneakers

Sneakers: true to size

Tell me you’ve seen a happier sneaker before. The minute I spotted these neon kicks I knew I wanted them for spring and summer! This style of sneaker has been a favorite of mine over the past year as they are SO comfortable [seriously, just wait until you try them]! I know I’ll be rockin’ these for the seasons ahead!

Erin’s Black Romper

Romper [size up if in between, wearing in medium] // Heels [true to size]

We are cruise and Vegas bound in the next two weeks so I’ve been scouring the internet looking for pieces that could work for either — insert this cute LBR [little black romper ;)] She’s flirty, she’s chic, and I love the fit and feel!

Katy’s Straight Leg Jeans

If you’re ready to hop on the straight leg jeans trend, I definitely recommend starting with this pair from Target for only $25 that are such a great “save version” of this oh so popular Abercrombie pair that are 4x the price!

Jeans [size up if in between] // Puffer Vest [true to size] // Similar Turtleneck // Similar Booties

Jen’s Business Casual Top

Long Sleeve Top – 07green color [size down one, wearing in small] // Jeans [similar pair] true to size // Boots [similar pair] true to size

I knew this top was a winner when my husband commented “Oh, that’s a fun one!” – And I agreed! The sleeve is fun yet tasteful and I simply loved how soft this was right when I tossed it on! So soft I wore it two days in a row! I will be going back for more colors in this one!

Jen’s Slippers

Sorel Coffee Run Slippers color: Stone Green, Bloodstone [true to size]

I LIVE my slippers! I’ve been a UGG slipper fan, but these Sorel ones caught my eye – also so many of you have shared on Facebook that you love them too! So this green color was oh so cute & on sale, I decided to jump slipper ship and slip on into Sorel. What.A.Treat. WOW. These slippers are so dang cozy and comfortable. I love that they have a real sole so I can wear them out to run the trash or grab the mail too! I never want to take them off!!

Lauren’s Puff Sleeve Sweatshirt

Loft Puff Sleeve Sweatshirt [sized up to a large for a bit more wiggle room!] // Jeans [size down one, wearing size 8]

Lauren’s Lace Puff Sleeve Mixed Media Top

Lace Puff Sleeve Mixed Media Top [tts, wearing in medium] // Similar jeans [size down one, wearing size 8] // Similar Heels

Steph’s New Favorite Top, Shorts and Wedges

Liverpool Gathered Short Sleeve Tee [I sized up to L for a little more room] / Frayed Shorts [Size down if between, wearing in 10] / Ugg Yarrow Sandals [TTS]

Steph’s Straight Leg Jeans

Liverpool Kennedy Straight Hi-Rise Jeans with Welt Pockets [TTS, wearing in 12P] / Also available in Plus Size // Hazel Pumps [TTS]

Macy’s Leggings

Leggings [TTS, wearing in XS short] // Similar Sweater // Similar Sneaker

If you have short legs and struggle finding leggings that don’t bunch up at the bottom then consider trying these 7/8 length Aerie leggings! They are soft as butter and fit me perfectly as a regular length legging. (For reference I am 4’11”) Now excuse me while I go order more colors!

Beauty Finds

Erin’s Eye Color Palette

Eye Palette

I’ve been a naked girl for several years now [we’re talking eye palettes people, I haven’t moved into a nudist colony..yet 🀣] When I saw this Naked3 Palette in the store I knew I had to try it. It turns out, it might be my favorite one yet! My go-to shades: I use the color strange all over my lid, apply mugshot on my brow bone area and slightly in the crease, line my bottom lid with blackheart, and then put a little bit of strange on my lower lid right in the corner to lighten and brighten!

Jen’s Night Cream & Eye Cream

ROC Retinol Correxion Double Pack

I’ve been on the hunt to find an eye cream with retinol, and this was a pleasant surprise! So far, so good – it’s not a 3 day miracle worker by any means, BUT I will say – using it daily/nightly I have seen a slight improvement in my crows feet area. So I will keep on laying it on thick, because the price was right for this sweet bundle!

Home Finds

Erin’s Shelf Styling Decor

Vases // Faux Books // White + Gold Chain

With moving into our new home, I have been on a massive hunt to find items to decorate the many shelves we have around the house [it’s no easy task I will say]! Thankfully I found a few good options on Amazon which you see above! The chain is heavy duty [literally, it’s heavy] and I love the faux books for the visual. Next step on the visual plans: fix the wallpaper πŸ˜‰

Macy’s Round Mirror

Round Mirror // Battery Operated Candles // Wooden Candlestick Holders

Misc. Finds

Erin’s Vital Proteins Collagen Powder

collagen powder

This stuff has been all of the hype for years, yet I was always so hesitant to jump on the train because I was afraid it would mess with my beloved coffee ritual. It turns out I don’t even notice a scoop of this stuff in my coffee [it dissolves immediately] and doesn’t add any weird taste or texture! I love knowing I’m getting an added 9g of protein per scoop and that the collagen is awesome for my hair, nails, and joints!

Katy’s Personalized Ring

personalized ring [rose gold]

Please excuse my dry hands and nail situation here 🀣 I decided to gift myself this personalized ring from the cutest Etsy shop with my son’s name on it! I went with the rose gold but they also have gold or silver! I think this is the perfect gift for a teen, college student, new Mom, Grandma…literally anyone! Shop more small businesses we love here!

Jen’s Nutpods

Nutpods French Vanilla

Thanks to my whole30 runs, this flavor of Nutpods has been my go-to, now and forever! It’s sugar free and dairy free, which I absolutely love! It does not taste fake, just adds a nice subtle creamer flavor to your daily coffee! If you’re looking to cut sugar and dairy from your diet, this coffee creamer is the winner!
