Today I wanted to share all my favourite products of 2020 with you. Even though I will not be shopping in 2021 that doesn’t mean I am not grateful for all the wonderful things I have accuired in the past year.
As many of you know I have decided to do a no spend year 2021 – I have a whole post & YouTube video about it. If anything this makes me even more determined not to shop and really use these wonderful items.
10 of favourite products of 2020
1. Fire 7 Tablet
I picked this up during the summer and has honestly been one of my favourite purchases. I have a whole YouTube video telling you all about it and how I use it. I have had tablets in the past including the Ipad Air and I can honestly say I have never used a tablet more than this one. So much so that for Christmas I picked up my mother the fire 10 as one of her Christmas presents.
2. HP Stream 14″ Laptop
This purchase was a long time coming. My other laptop that I was doing all my online work on was my little 11″ HP 2 in 1 Laptop. Don’t get my wrong I love it to bits and it has served me well but I needed something more powerful. It couldn’t handle the amount of work I needed it for so it cut out all the time and it was very slow to load.
I powered through for the last couple of months before I bought this because I didn’t want to waste money when the other one still worked but soon it began to affect my work and my days so enough was enough. I did my research and found this laptop. It had everything I needed and was very resonably priced. I love HP so I decided to stick to what I know and I am so happy I did!!
3. Little Portable Retro Speaker
I found this little cutie on Amazon around November when I was looking for gifts for others and feel in love with it but I didn’t buy it because I was saving my money for presents for others. However my wonderful boyfriend Joe surprised me with it as one of my Christmas presents!! I love it! Its so cute and portable. It’s got a really good speaker too that connects to your phone through bluetooth. I tried to find the exact one to link it but it must be gone however if you just search for them there are so many cute retro designs! You are bound to find the perfect one for your home
4. Retro Bluetooth Radio
This was another gift I was so lucky to recieve this Christmas. This time from my sister. Can you see the pattern and tell that I love the retro style. I don’t know what it was but just I love it. This radio is so cute and will be perfect for my future kitchen. I can listen to the news or tunes while I bake.
5. Samsung Fit E
I picked this up about 18 months ago with my phone and I have used it so much. I think its the perfect budget smart watch and highly recommend it for someone looking to pick up a good one but they are on a budget. I got all my notifications as well as all my fitness needs as well like steps, calories, heat-rate and so on. I used it in conjunction with the Samsung health app and I really think it helped with my fitness motivation.
6. Samsung Galaxy Rose Gold Smart Watch
This Christmas I was gifted by Joe with the new Samsung rose gold smart watch. I would have never have bought it for myself because it would be too extravagant with the budget I am on right now and I was really happy with the Samsung fit e but I do love this watch now too! If you have it in your budget and you want an all singing and all dancing watch then you should defnitely check it out.
7. Yoga Pants
I suppose lounge wear in general has been the unofficial uniform of 2020. I have accuired quite a few pairs of yoga pants / work out pants in 2020 and I love them. I have been wearing them all the time. So comfortable for working from home as well as going on daily exercise walks.
I have really enjoyed making smoothies this year. I picked up a blender during the summer and its been serving me well. It was less than €20 in Argos, a real bargin. There are so many different types on the market and maybe lots of them a better but this one has been perfect for me!
9. Ear muffs
This might seem like a random one but these have been a lifesaver this year. I have sensitive ears and if its a windy day I usually shy away from walking because my ears will hurt me during and afterwards. However ear muffs save the day. On a windy day I pop them on and I can walk for miles. I don’t why it didn’t occur to me before! You can put earphones or earpods underneath and it works perfectly. If you suffer with your ears when out on your daily walk give ear muffs a try – Honestly life changing!
10. Anti blue light glasses
This was another life changing product for me. I bought these just to give them a try. I wasn’t expecting much however I did notice the difference after about 3 days. My eyes were less tired, less strained. I had less headaches. They really did help! I highly recommend them if you are feeling eye strain from devices.
It’s really nice looking at all the products I have picked up and have brought me so much joy. It reminds me that I don’t need to buy more stuff when I have such lovely things already!
