my top 10 favorites from 2020

More recap posts… it’s like a right of passage for any blogger–especially when we are out of ideas for topics and subject matter posts! I’m all about seeing what you loved, what my favorite purchases were and so on and so forth, so this should come as no surprise that I always try to do a little review of the top 10 purchases per years’ past…most of these 2020 favorites are best-sellers that you all fell in love with as well… and maybe a few of these finds could be a little something special you missed from my Amazon favorites, or something you’ve been wanting to try but were waiting for feedback–no worries, I’ve got you, so let’s do this David Letterman style:

TEN. AMAZON EYELINER STAMP

As random as this one may seem, I’m a bit obsessed. I’m not the best liquid eyeliner applicator, so when I found this easy peasy stamper to help you get the perfect cateye eyeliner look, I added it to cart immediately. And yes, it’s foolproof I promise you that. It comes in a pack of two, one stamp for each eye and then liquid eyeliner on the other end if you want to apply that as well. It’s smudgeproof and a great look for date night or dressy event to amplify the eyes. And it’s only $11 to make your eyes pop like magic!

NINE. T3 BODYWAVER

When you’re seeking loose curls with more body, this is the tool to tackle your hair with. I bought this in late fall and you guys instantly knew I was doing something different to my strands… one word to note: I would only buy this IF your hair is semi-long to long, because the 1.75″ barrel definitely won’t work on anything shoulder length and under. I love EVERYTHING T3 and ONLY use their curling irons so I promise even though it’s an investment, it’s a hot tool you’ll have for years to come.

EIGHT. PUREOLOGY DRY SHAMPOO

My hairdresser Taylor turned me onto this dry shampoo last summer and I said adios to Living Proof in exchange for this refresh + go spray. I absolutely LOVE the scent, but also the rice starch formula that absorbs ALL the excess oil from my hair. It also doubles as a texturing spray so if you’re looking for something that can do it all, this is it. Even better, it is made for color-treated hair because no, in all honesty, I am NOT a natural blonde [shocking, I know–lol]. As with all beauty buys, be sure to read the directions so you know exactly how far away to spray!

SEVEN. SOREL WINTER DUCK FUR BOOTS

EVERYONE fell in love with these boots when I shared them last month… and it’s even better when you can snag them in the kids size to save a bit of your hard-earned money. Just $110 in three colors and they keep you cozy warm while still looking fashionable during the winter! I am a women’s size 7 and I ordered the kids size 3 and they fit perfectly! These will last you for years and would work well as snow boots when you’re off skiing as well. P.S. so good I gifted them to my little ladies, too!

SIX. PURA BLUETOOTH FRAGRANCE DIFFUSER

Seeing as we spent 3846456 days at home in 2020, it’s only fitting that we all wanted it to smell good, right?? I fell in love with the Pura Fragrance Diffuser from the moment I took it out of the box… so much so I ordered two more for additional rooms in our house! It’s great in that you can select how much scent it should diffuse throughout the day and you can easily turn it on or off when you leave via your phone = another technology win! Take 15% off your $30+ order with my code NASHVILLETASH and my fav scents include Capri Volcano, Paddywax Ocean Tide + Sea Salt, and Pure Placid Cashmere Sweater–tons of new scents from NEST and LAFCO are on there, too!

2020 Favorites by popular Nashville life and style blog, Hello Happiness: image of Nike Flyknit sneakers.

FIVE. NIKE FLYKNIT SNEAKERS

Hands down, these are my most favorite sneakers of all time. This is now my 5th pair of this specific style and they NEVER fail me… my only caveat about Nike is that you’ll want to size up one 1/2 size as they run a bit snug. Great for cardio, strength training, running and everyday, I love how lightweight they are and incredible for friends with high-arched feet like me. I just ordered this exact colorway again because I love it so much–gotta bring some color to your workout game!!!

FOUR. JCREW DEMI BOOT CUT JEANS

So nice I bought them way more than twice… I have every single colorway of this jean and if JCrew comes out with more, you better believe I’ll be adding them to my cart immediately!! They are the perfect length for showing off all my favorite shoes + sneakers and love the tiny bit of flare at the bottom hem–super comfy with great stretch and they are so well made. For sizing, I am normally a 25 and in these I wear a 24 in each colorway. These are an all-season staple in this gal’s wardrobe!

THREE. ENBLISS BRALETTE

Since we spent LOADS of time at home this past year, it was essential that our underlayers match ALL the coziness of our attire and it seems as though y’all love this wireless bralette as much as I do. A great everyday option in a ton of colorways, it’s the epitome of easy style with an oh so soft fabrication! I wear a size small for reference and think I’ve now bought every single colorway #sorrynotsorry.

2020 Favorites by popular Nashville life and style blog, Hello Happiness: image of Loving Tan Mousse.

TWO. LOVING TAN MOUSSE

I never thought I would leave my Sun Tan City spray tan membership after renewing it for years, yet this magic mousse had me saving major $$$ in 2020 during quarantine when I had to step up my faux glow game. I’m hooked and it’s the ONLY body tanning mousse I recommend and use personally. It goes on easily without streaks, doesn’t have that weird smell, and the color looks INCREDIBLE! I use the ultra dark formula, but there is a complete range of color options if you just need a hint of subtle sheen right now and it also comes in a 2-hour quick formula, too. I love the applicator mitt so you don’t get crazy dark hands when you apply… trust me babes, I’ve tried EVERY SINGLE TANNING PRODUCT OUT THERE and this is the best!!!

2020 Favorites by popular Nashville life and style blog, Hello Happiness: image of Dyson Air wrap styler.

ONE. DYSON AIR WRAP STYLER AND HAIR DRYER

And number one… it should come as NO surprise to any of you that this gamechanger tops my list for so many reasons. Not only has it helped to rectify some of the damage I’ve done to my strands over the past few years, but it helps me save time every single time I use it = the less heart approach works miracles for my thick, coarse hair and I LOVE all the attachments that come with this little wizard. Sure, it comes with a hefty pricetag, but on a cost per use calculation, it’s merely cents to save my sanity and help my hair look great every day! I cannot say enough great things about this tool and I’m a Dyson girl for life!!!
