Cannot believe this decade is OVER but it’s sure been fun to look back on the past 10 years and everything that’s changed. Personally, I got married and had my 3 children in the 2010s – hard to top that, but looking forward to adding a 4th baby to the crew and watching them grow in the ’20s.
Professionally, I left my job in corporate America in 2016 and went full throttle into growing Lovely Lucky Life into what it is today. It’s taken thousands of hours, a ton of research, a LOT of trial and error, but going into 2020 and reflecting back on 2019, I’m SO proud and thankful for the business and community I’ve built.
Here’s what you loved on Instagram, the blog posts you read the most, and the most purchased favorites you added to your lives in 2019.
As always, THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart for choosing to spend your time on the Internet with me. I really value you as a community and truly consider you all my friends in my phone <3.
The 10 Most Purchased Items of 2019 – Amazon
I had to break out the FAVE Amazon faves vs all the other faves. Amazon first!
1 // Bat Wall Decals
SO MANY OF YOU added these bats to your walls in October // shop them here
2 // USB Rechargable Lighter
I’ve had this rose gold beauty since April and it’s true love. You gals stuffed your stocking with them this December – no lighter fluid, great for lighting candles, super chic, super inexpensive // shop it here
3 // Art Storage Bags
I use these to store the kids’ artwork (each child has their own bag) until I get my life together and really find a more permanent solution. I have the 19×25 size and they’re super durable and fit large pieces of art + binders and notebooks // shop them here
4 // Ear Thermometer
I finally got fed up with our terrible temporal (aka forehead) thermometer and asked YOU which thermometer you didn’t hate on Instagram – this was BY FAR the most highly recommended so I bought it and tossed the other one – love the new ear thermometer from Braun! // shop it here
5 // Portable Power Bank
I bought myself one of these and promptly ordered one for Chris as well. It’s a portable power bank that you carry in your purse/backpack/wherever that holds about 3.5 full iPhone charges in it AND it charges really quickly. I keep mine powered up and in my purse to charge my AirPod case on-the-go and so I’m never stuck with a dead phone. Works for any phone, not just Apple. Phenomenal reviews, too. // shop it here
6 // Girls Hair Bows
These are the BEST bows for girls and the price is even better. They look so high-end and hold up so well and come in a pack of 20 in a rainbow of colors. Available in 6 inch, 5 inch, 4.5 inch, and 3 inch – great reviews and a great gift idea! // shop them here
7 // Race Track Tape
Grabbed this for Coop’s stocking this year and it was a superb choice – he sat solo for over a half-hour building himself a track with this tape. Really cute gift to give with a pack of HotWheels // shop it here
8 // Karen Walker Dupe Sunglasses
A GREAT pair of inexpensive sunglasses – these look JUST LIKE a pair from Karen Walker that cost $250 (yes, I’m serious) for a FRACTION of the price. I have these in both tortoise and black and they’re a steal. // shop them here
9 // Ubbi Bath Toy Holder
Sometimes you guys really surprise me with what you’ll love – this is one of those times. You went nuts over this standing bath toy holder… it is a great buy, looks great, has holes at the bottom so wet toys can drain AND it won’t fall off your wall at 4am and scare everyone to death 😉 // shop it here
10 // OXO Grape Cutter
I do NOT mess around with grapes and this little gadget is a lifesaver (literally) – instantly quarters grapes so they’re safe for tiny fingers & mouths. Great gadget, great price. // shop it here
Top 9 Instagram Posts of 2019
This is what you double-tapped the most… a great mix of the bump, honest motherhood, a few strokes of genius (hi, snack basket + brunch cheese board), and a sprinkle of hot mess real life. Just the way I like it :).
