The Entire 2018 List of Lauryn’s Favorite Things

holiday gifts guide roundup 2018 shopping christmas by the skinny confidentialAs you all know, I am VERY fucking specific. I know what I like & what I don’t like.

In order to really be a tastemaker & funnel for you guys I feel like I’ve tried 86374892 products & I’m constantly exposing myself to different things.

I want you guys to NOT have to do all the work to find the best of the best- I want to do that for you & showcase it on The Skinny Confidential.

This blog has always been ( for 9 years ) a place where you can come & know that I’ve scanned, tested & experimented with so many different items so I can bring you the best of the best to weed out what works & what doesn’t.

As the blog continues to grow, I want to make sure you guys have a yearly list for reference. I was completely inspired by ( no surprise here ) Oprah to do a list of my 107 favorite things.

Each year, I will deliver this list to you before Christmas, so you have tons of options for giving & receiving. It’ll be a resource where you guys can go & know that you’re giving ( or getting ) tried & tested items.

NONE of this is sponsored. These are all things I use all the time that are insane gems.

You’ll find everything here, from my favorite pair of sneakers that I wear every day, to my favorite white toaster, to my fave sparking water ( you know it’s grapefruit ), to what kind of pumpkin enzymes I feed Boone and Pixy. Everything in this post is TSC-approved & you can’t go wrong with any of these items.

Be sure to leave your favorite item of 2018 in the comments below. I think it would be so fun to compile a community favorite things list. Right?!

  1. LOVE this list!! I almost thought that you forgot WOO 😉 I would add my black MZ Wallace Metro backpack to the list – it makes the way to work or the gym so much more comfy and stylish <3

  2. Hi LAURYN,

    You have such a list of so many favorite things. I better print it all out to show the boss. I know she will love going through the list.

    Cheers Nathan…
