I'd be remiss to close out 2022 without mentioning a few items that have recently caught my attention. (And by "a few," I mean 40.) The internet has provided us with some top notch retail content as of late—I'm talking everything from stunning jewelry pieces to après-ski apparel. As my holiday shopping comes to a close, I'm switching gears and buying gifts for myself. Although, if I'm being honest, I've been doing that all along. For wardrobe upgrades, I'm shopping on-trend winter apparel like metallic puffers and merino-wool sweaters. For beauty and wellness, new arrivals from Kosas and Tata Harper are calling my name. Basically, I'm in the market for a giant overhaul ('tis the season, right?), and I'm sharing all my new finds below. If you're also hitting refresh just in time for the new year, keep scrolling for everything you need.
