Wide Brim Straw Hat  This is available in a variety of color combos. It is foldable/packable too.  

Wide Brim Felt Fedora – I love this one for the fall and winter. Also available in a variety of colors. (I love the one in camel!)

Nine West Pump – have this style in more than one color. It’s leather, comfortable, and the heel is wider. If you need to be in a pair of heels for a full day, this one will do it. 

Lucky Brand Ankle Bootie – The perfect Fall bootie! Super comfy in a soft leather. 

Graphic Tee – Anything fun, soft, vintage, and rainbow has me. This tee has been a favorite. Super cute under your favorite denim jacket too. Comes in other colors besides gray. 

Graphic Tee – This one gets comments every time I wear it. I love the message and the fun colors.  

Bullet Journal & Art Supplies

Leuchtturm1917 Bullet Journal – I have used this same journal in different colors for many years. It’s an A5 size in dotted hardcover. I’m currently using this Lemon yellow and I’ve had Berry and Nordic Blue. Great colors! 

Zebra Mildliners –  These are fun in the bujo or for highlighting books or notes. They have a great rich color. Fun to use! 

Pentel Sign Pens – I adore the brush pen in this set and the thick – Sharpie like feel of the other two included. One is permanent. These are really black and look pretty. They have a variety of uses. 

Sakura Pigma Micron 3 pack   – These pens won’t budget after they are on the paper, even with another pen or mildlighter on top They are permanent and this set has an 01 very fine (.25mm) and a  03 (.35mm) and 05 (.45mm). I could not NOT have these in my bujo. 

Watercolor Brush Set – Contains three round brushes – size 4, 8, and 12. A good quality set to start. These are my go to brushes. 

Tim Holtz Fine Tip Water Brush – I always get asked about this brush in my Instagram videos when I am lettering my monthly spreads. This is my favorite and I’ve had it for several years with no problems.  

Metallic Mica Watercolor Paint – This paint is, well, GOLD! I have two of these colors in singles Moon Gold is my favorite), but I may need this set for the silver.  This paint is beautifully pigmented. 

Tombow Dual Brush Pen full set – This is the mother of all brush pens and if I had it to do over, I would invest in this instead of buying separate sets. I use these every single day in my bullet journal and I love lettering with them. 

Tombow Dual Brush Primary Set – This is the basic primary color set of Tombows – a good starter if you don’t invest in the full 96 color set. 

Tombow Dual Brush Bright Set – This is my favorite set and the one I use most often.


Manduka Pro Yoga Mat  – 85″ for us taller people who need more real estate. You will not regret this purchase!

Adidas Terrex Hiking Shoes – if you want a great hiker that looks more like a sneaker and less like a hiking book, I cannot recommend this one enough. 

Apple Watch – I have an older series 2 in black stainless 42mm. It has been a game changer for my fitness accountability. Get the best one you can afford. 

LifeStraw Personal Water filter straw – Hiking essential! Ran out of water? No problem. Drink from any body of water. No, really! 


Bose Bluetooth Speaker – This was recommended to me and I’m doing you a solid by recommending it. It is also water resistant! (It comes in a variety of colors too)

Apple AirPods – two words: LIFE CHANGING! Don’t hesitate to grab these. Worth every penny. 

Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones – These are a MUST for travel. If are flying anywhere, you need to get a pair. Worth every penny, especially this upgraded version. 

Canon 5D Mark IV and 24-70 mm lens – If you are a serious shooter, just go for it. I would also recommend a 6D Mark II if you want to get something a little more inexpensive.  Lenses I love besides the 24-70mm: a fixed 50 MM



Cuisinart Coffee Grinder – For when you buy the good beans to enjoy instead of Keurig

Keurig Single Cup – For compact spaces like mine, this is a must. 

Lasko Tower Fan – I cannot tell you what a lifesaver this is for the first summer of menopausal hot flashes! Also nice for an office or compact space. 

Amazon Velvet Hangers – I will never not have these in my closet. They are space saving and nothing falls off of them. 

Tiny Dustpan & Brush – I keep this behind my trashcan for little spills and clean up. It’s just handy. 

MIRA 25 Oz. Stainless Water Bottle – These are a much less expensive alternative to the pricier versions. 


This is how I consume books. I love using Audible so I can “read” while driving, cleaning, cooking, or walking. It is a wonderful way to hear books read by the author themselves many times. I am a huge fan of personal development and autobiography. I also enjoy a good mix of fiction and Audible always has exactly what I am looking for. Use my link for a free trial and two free books.
