2021’s Top 5 of Everything

Last year I started this series where I look back on and recap the most popular and purchased topics/products across all of my platforms. It ended up being a fascinating way to see what performed the best and what were a few highlights of the year.

So I’m bringing it back (you can see 2020’s Top Five here if you’re curious!) and after diving into my analytics, the results are fascinating and so much fun to look through.

A few major patterns I’m seeing are that you all love seeing life updates, reviews, traveling, Lilly Pulitzer, Etsy, and de-puffing/de-bloating items (same girl, same).

Top 5 Most Purchased Items

ONE // Abercrombie Vegan Leather Ankle Straight Pants— The BEST straight leg faux leather pants I’ve found. As seen here, they’re true to size and I wear the ‘short’ length and I’m 5’1″ for reference.

TWO // Lilly Pulitzer Luxletic 4″ Ocean Trail Shorts— These were a VERY popular Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale find in September! I’m eyeing the chic white/gold colored pair now!

THREE // Etsy Personalized Leather Dopp Kit— This has been an unbelievably popular gift for guys in the past few holidays seasons I’ve shared it. It’s sadly sold out but linking a similar one here.

FOUR // Etsy Hand-Painted Monogram Straw Tote— This makes the best gift!! It’s only $75 and was a favorite of everyone’s this summer. As seen here, use code AMYLOVE for 10% off orders of $100+ and ask for the “Amy stripe color” for the exact colors I have.

FIVE // Express Scalloped Double Breasted Blazer— I shared this last spring, as seen here, and it’s sadly sold out but it was just about the chicest blazer I’ve ever seen! I’ll keep an eye on a potential restock.

Top 5 Most Purchased Amazon Items

ONE // Line Shaping Face Masks— These make such a dent in lifting and sculpting my jawline! I keep them in the fridge and use one before I have an event or shoot.

TWO // Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies— Johnny and I are obsessed with these for managing bloating. We see a substantial difference when we take two or three in the morning, plus they taste delicious.

THREE // Amazon Essentials Women’s Polar Fleece Pullover Jacket— I shared this last January and it’s one o f my favorite fleece finds ever. At only $24, it snaps, has pockets, and is very soft, inside and out!

FOUR // Essence Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara— This was an Amazon top seller in 2020 as well! It’s only 45 but specializes in the ‘false lash’ effect that can really make it look like you’re wearing fake lashes!!

FIVE // Foundation Makeup Brush Flat— I saw this on @things.i.bought.and.liked’s page and can’t get over how well it smooths my foundation evenly across my face. It definitely helps give you an airbrushed look!

My Top 5 Personal Favorites

ONE // Equilibria CBD and LifeSeasons Anxie-T— I still take both every single day to help relieve anxiety, and they do wonders for my mood and how I feel. Use code AMYLITTLESON for Equilibria and code AMY15 for Lifeseasons.

TWO // My ice roller— I still won’t apply any makeup without ice rolling my face first. Nothing de-puffs me better!!

THREE // Our new juicer— We use this nearly every day and it is super easy. I swear the fresh juice make me glow from the inside out too!

FOUR // AE Mom Jeans— Hands down the softest jeans I own! As seen here, I sized up one size & got the ‘short’ length (I’m 5’1″).

FIVE // Ray-Ban Round Sunglasses— These were my most worn sunglasses by far and are super flattering and polarizes. As seen here, here, and here. The exact color I have is ‘Brown Classic B-15!’
