Get To Know Me
With the new year ending, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you my list of top products from 2018 — you know, the elevated selects.
What classifies as an elevated product? Well, similar to the concept of elevated basics, these items stand out among the masses of competition and are tried, tested and true of adding value and making a difference to my life — and hopefully yours.
Below you’ll find my top ten list of products across health, beauty, sex, wellness, home, travel and just overall life. These are the best of the best guys. And if you’re interested in checking out the full master list, head here.
This bedtime ritual has changed my life for the better. Like a silky soft hug to your face — this mask allows for the most peaceful and interuption-free sleep. And it even comes with a matching pillowcase if you feel like upping the experience.
Talk about a regular spa-like treatment. Cleanse your skin on the daily with this pulsing, exfoliating tool that sculpts, brightens and removes impurities. You’ll look forward to your time at the sink even more, I promise.
This has got to be my absolute favorite product of the year. So much I gave it out as Christmas gifts galore. A female founder who wasn’t happy with the selections for covering her hair on no-wash days came up with this beautifully made, fashionably stylish turban-like accessory for your shower (#goals). Cover those locks with the new showercap.
Another gift I shared with multiple people this year — the brand that’s revolutionizing the dental industry with a modernized approach to the electric toothbrush. I love the packages you can buy with replacement heads delivered to your doorstep without even thinking about it!
Along the same lines of raising the bar in the everyday products department sits Flamingo — the brand that’s taking shaving to a whole new level. Five blades, beautiful ergonomic design and I’m dying over the metal accents. Rose gold anyone?
This was on my list and what do you know — Santa came through! When my trusty Calpak got demolished during a recent international flight, I knew it was time to make a severe upgrade. This brand is stomping all competition with its removable lithium battery, chic, minimal design and lifetime guarantee. I’m obsessed with the white and you betchya I got the bigger size.
These local guys are making waaaves in the rain industry. Upgrade your everyday umbrella to the most gorgeous designed accessory. Portuguese cork handle, named after amazing places and a look that screams urban chic. These are popping up in retail spaces and hotels in Seattle and beyond. Grab the new piece of luxury cargo that you’ll actually be proud to carry with you. A color for every style. And did I mention there’s a give back program? Swoon.
Talk about game changing. I used to dread washing my hair for the sole reason of having to detangle it after the shower. Now I use this amazing tool under $10 and all of my worries disappear — literally. Your hair will thank me. It also feels like a massage on your scalp during every use.
You mean lube?! Yeah dude. Everyone has sex so it’s time to share the wealth in this new amazing product that’s enhanced (pun intended) the lives of many. This all-natural organic potion not only has the best texture, but smells and tastes amazing. You don’t have to worry about any chemicals like every other lube out there — this one is just perfection. I dare you to try, and then subscribe & save on Amazon :).
The chicest vitamin on the market. This brand has reinvented the way women pop their multivitamins on the regular. Get the nine essential nutrients — folate, omega-3, vitamin b12, vitamin d3, iron, vitamin k12. boron, vitamin e and magnesium — you need as a thriving female. Plus, the beautifully clear capsules pack a minty fresh flavor — bye bye fish burps! Sugar free, vegan friendly, non-GMO and without any colorants or synthetic fillers. Start your monthly subscription and get these cuties delivered to your doorstep so you never miss a nutrient filled day. And oh! There’s also a prenatal option!
So there you have it. Is there anything that’s wowed you this last year that I’m missing? Do share in the comments below!
