Favorite things 2019 / by jen geigley


These are a few of my favorite things … January 2019 edition! Happy new year to you all and hope you had a happy holiday season. I’ve been thinking about some of my favorite things lately and thought it was a good time to share, so here’s a little visual list of some of the cool things I’ve been loving lately.

First up is Hank’s Pockets. I own these pocket vests in both brown and black and they are the absolute best. I met Hannah (the creator of Hank’s pockets) last year in nyc at Vogue Knitting Live and immediately fell in love with her handmade creations.

My whole family is loving this Everyone Coconut & Lemon lotion this season. It’s bright and fresh and smells fantastic with matricaria flower extract, aloe vera leaf, calendula flower extract, white tea leaf extract and lemon peel oil.


You guys know I wear Vans every single day, right? This pair of Woven Check Slip-Ons will be your new favorite – they’re comfortable and will look cool with every outfit you own.

Are you always cold? Try out my new favorite base layer – Heattech from Uniqlo. I love the entire womens’ collection but I really, really love the Heattech from Alexander Wang pieces. (Click this link to get $10 off your first purchase.)

Guys. Have you still not tried THINX?! These period underwear have changed my life. I’ve been using them for a few years now and will never go back to my old ways. Skeptical? I get it. Try one pair and see what you think. (I bet you’ll love them.) My personal favorites are the the hip hugger, the cotton brief and the boy short. And if you have tween/teenaged girls, check out THINX (BTWN)! Get $10 off your order with my referral link.


Is your regular lip balm not cutting it this winter? Try Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15. This best-seller is famous for its ultra-nourishing and protective benefits, sublime texture, and citrus flavor.

I have a new favorite pair of jeans! Check out Uniqlo’s High Rise Cigarette Jean – you won’t be sorry. (Use this link to get $10 off your $75 order!)


And last but not least, I have to include my brand new Knitting Planner in my list! I’ve been working on this baby for awhile now, so I’m super excited to see it in print. It includes project planning pages, brainstorming pages, lists, knitter's graph paper, beautiful photos and more. It also functions as a day-to-day planner with monthly and weekly pages with plenty of room for writing and/or bullet journaling. This planner will give you a place to record all your important knitting information, like the measurements of friends and family and yarn requirements for projects you want to knit. It’s 6x9" and has 240 pages awaiting your notes and ideas, perfect for throwing into your knitting bag.

And that’s my list! I hope you enjoyed it because I had lots of fun putting it together. What’s on your list of favorite things this year?
