My Favourite Things 2021 - Home, Beauty and Fashion

Today I'm sharing my tried and true favourite products for home decor, kitchen, fashion, beauty & wellness. These are things I already own and love!

The biggest shopping week of the year is upon us and if you're like me, you're making a list, checking it twice, and getting ready to pounce on those shopping deals.

But you want to make sure those deals are really deals right? There's no point in buying something at a great price if it ends up being terrible and not what you want. Well today, my blogger friends and I are here to help.

Favorite Things from your Favorite Bloggers

I know I love getting recommendations from people I know or follow online. Sarah at Thrifty Decor Chick is one of my longtime friends and she's invited me to join in her annual Favourite Things party. It's an online party and you can attend and shop in your pjs :) 

Today and tomorrow, my home and lifestyle blogger friends and I are sharing the products we've bought ourselves and absolutely love. These products are the best of the best. I've known most of these bloggers for well over a decade so when they say they've owned something for years and recommend it, I trust they're not leading me astray.


If you're here, welcome, I'm so glad you stopped by! My name is Jennifer. I'm a wife and mom to a pre-teen girl Chloe. Since 2007, I've been blogging about our renovations, home decor projects, seasonal celebrations and parties. We have a colonial home in Toronto and a summer cottage in Prince Edward County. I also run an Etsy printables shop and an online decor shop (plaid outdoor mats are my specialty!)

My tastes run to the classics - give me dependable and good quality over trendy any day! I'm happy to put on my favourite joggers again and again, use the same trusted pan to cook every meal, and reach for my favourite face serum knowing it will give me the same results every time.

Here are the products I keep reaching for. If you're interested, here's a previous list from 2019 (and yes, I still own and recommend those products too). I've included affiliate links for shopping convenience.

Favorite Products for Beauty, Fashion, and Wellness

  1. This Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is a must-have for your nightly skin care routine. It feels silky, not oily, and absorbs well. My skin feels more relaxed and looks visibly smoother when I wake up.
  2. I put half a scoop of this SPROOS MCT Collagen Creamer in my morning coffee to start my day off right. My mind feels clearer and the collagen has made my skin and hair look their best in years.
  3. Hands up if you struggle with thinning eyebrows! The Anastasia Beverly Hills brow products are my absolute favourite. I love their Brow Definer pencil for everyday but for a fuller look, I rely on the Dipbrow Pomade used with the Brush #7B.
  4. I was completely heartbroken when LOFT closed their Canadian stores but if there is one thing I will still shop online and pay the exchange and duties for, it's LOFT's Lou & Grey Signature Softblend products. My current obsession is the Signature Softblend Sweatpants and Signature Softblend Sweatshirt. The buttery soft, cozy texture is perfect for everything from working from home to afternoon naps.
  5. No doubt you've heard about the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Volumizer and I'm happy to say this hair dryer lives up to the hype. It handles my long, thick hair with ease and has cut down my blowdrying time by half!
  6. These Aerie Flannel Pajama Pants are a newer purchase but they have already become my go-to pajama. Not only are they adorable (love the velvet details!) but they come in a short size and are super comfortable.
  7. I love when functional products get a style upgrade. These Vintage Dad Socks fall in that category. They're a nice thick weave, stay up, and bring retro style to any outfit. Putting them instantly makes me feel like a kid again too :)
  8. I can't say enough about the Passion Planner. I've been using these planners for the last two years and they have truly made me feel more productive, mindful, and in control of my destiny. I prefer the Weekly Annual layout in a Medium size planner. If you'd like to get or gift one of your own, click here for $5 off coupon.
  9. I'm the kind of gal whose feet are always cold but these EverFoams Women's Fluffy Memory Foam Slippers with Faux Fur Collar keep me nice and toasty. The inner fleece lining does flatten with use so I suggest sizing down for a tighter fit.
  10. I love the Aerie Real Sunnie Wireless Lightly Lined Bra so much I've bought it in multiple colours for me and my daughter. It's stretchy and is put on like a sports bra. I find it much more comfortable than typical clip type bras.

Favorite Products for Home Decor & Kitchen

  1. Boring but reliable, these Polyte Premium Microfiber Kitchen Dish Cloth in Waffle Weave are ones I use all over my home. They come in a 12-pack in three colours so I'll designate a colour for each area - blue for kitchen, cream for cleaning and dusting, and grey for bathrooms. They soak up water well and wring out effectively so they're great for wiping down counters and drying off.
  2. In our entire home, the Rosy Tomorrow II landscape print is my absolute favourite piece of art. The art itself is beautiful, but having it printed on canvas with a wood frame really showcases the art in spectacular fashion.
  3. The DASH Hot Air Popcorn Maker is simple and cute. It's easy enough for my 12 year old to use on her own and a full scoop of popcorn makes just enough for family movie night.
  4. We got our Vitamix E310 Explorian Blender last Christmas and honestly, I don't know why we waited so long! We use it regularly for smoothies and soups and it never disappoints.
  5. The most used appliance in my kitchen? It has to be the Cosori Air Fryer 3.7 QT. This size is perfect for our family of 3 but if I needed something bigger, I would opt for the Cosori Air Fryer 5.8 QT. We use the air fryer for heating chicken fingers for school lunches, reheating pizza, and it makes for easy (and splatter free) grilled salmon teriyaki.
  6. I might have dozens of mismatched mugs in my kitchen, but the Le Creuset mugs are the ones I always reach for. They are heavy but not too heavy, feel good in your hand, and come in lots of pretty colours.
  7. Yes, its an influencer favourite, but I really do love my Our Place Always Pan. We have one for the cottage and one for our home and use it every day. The higher sides of the pan make it perfect for cooking up our family favourite, Chicken Piccata. DEAL ALERT: Use code RAMBLINGRENO10 to get 10% off your purchase.
  8. I was so completely impressed by the size and quality of this Arus Highlands Collection Tartan Throw Blanket that I bought for our guest bedroom, that I'm gifting one to my friend this Christmas. It's a generous size and feels nice and thick.
  9. I have two of these SimpleHouseware Stackable 2-Tier Sliding Basket Organizers and they are life changing. Seriously, the area under the kitchen sink has never looked so neat and tidy. They keep kitchen garbage bags, sponges, and cloths organized yet accessible. What more could you want.
  10. Are you picky about pillows and inserts? Then you will not be disappointed with Tonic Living pillows and their dreamy faux down pillow inserts. I've been buying their pillows for well over a decade and they offer just the right mix of softness and stability.
  11. Taco Tuesday and Sunday Brunch will never be the same once you have this Farmhouse Pancake Warmer. We use it at least once a week to keep pancakes, waffles, or tortillas warm. The vents ensure the food stays hot but doesn't get soggy.
So, are any of my favourite things your favourite things too? Now don't forget to click over and check out these bloggers and see what's on their favourite lists. Happy shopping!
