Little Luxuries I Love

Do you ever look at something and think what would I do without this? I do and often catch myself and laugh because it is typically about the most non-necessary item that I just happen to really love more than I should. Could I live without these things or substitute them for something else? Definitely. But, since I hope I don’t have to, I thought I’d be a bad influence and share some of the little luxuries I love with y’all instead. This post could have also been titled “why my parents tell me I have expensive taste” since it seems like all of these items are slightly overpriced. Regardless, they are the items that never fail to make me excited to use/wear when I reach for them. 

As far as drawers go, I think my pajamas drawer gets to be classified as my favorite. It’s filled to the brim with so many favorite pajama sets that make me excited to get in bed and have me feeling semi put together when I wake up. Lake Pajamas make the softest sets, and I’ve definitely been suckered into “collecting” a few of their different styles and color combinations. While they are pricey, they hold up really well and have maintained their softness over the years. I have linked some of my favorites from their newest collection at the bottom of this post! 

There’s something about lighting a candle that makes me feel a little bit more at ease. Maybe that’s because I tend to do it once I’ve sat down in the night to eat dinner or watch tv. I should probably light them more often since I’ve collected so many over the years, but all the smells seem to have a time and place (or at least that’s what I tell myself). I love the Baies candle by Diptyque, but it’s VERY pricey, so I only have a mini version from the set offered during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. 

When it’s cold outside, and I’m lounging around the house slippers are a good option, but soft socks are even better! They are something I forget about on occasion but am so happy to have remembered when I do reach for them! 

Having a favorite (expensive) detergent is downright ridiculous, but this detergent has become my signature scent according to my friends so now I feel like I’d be disappointing them along with myself if I didn’t continue to repurchase this product. I get the $28 bottle probably twice a year and am set which isn’t terrible but also isn’t ideal. To make this product last longer use regular non-scented detergent and add a cap full of this product to the washing machine and you still get the great scent without using the bottle up so quickly.

I remember about halfway through the school year when I taught one of my students asking me if I ever wore my nails unpainted. I had to laugh because it is a rarity for me not to have my nails painted. I pretty much always paint them myself and am a sucker for a new Essie color! 

I have gotten to the point where I’ve justified purchasing my favorite ground coffee which is pricier than typical ground coffee since I use it in my re-usable K-cup pod and am not having to buy the pods. So I’m helping the environment while also getting to drink my favorite copy which epitomizes win-win. This is the coffee that is served at one of my favorite restaurants in my hometown, so while the flavor is great I also like the association I have with it! 

What are your favorite little luxuries?
