A little late, but we finally have my 2017 favourites! I love favourites post, so of course I was going to do this one. I’ve tried to include a mix of things, but it’s quite a long list, so prepare yourselves. Here we have my 2017 favourites:
The Body Shop | Body Milk
I absolutely love this stuff. I’ve heard countless people talk about the importance of moisturising after a shower, but who has the time for that right? Turns out I do. I thought it would take ages, but with this it takes just around 4-5 minutes. The spray bottle makes it extremely easy to use, so I’d definitely recommend going for the 250ml. The best thing about this for me, is that it doesn’t leave that greasy feeling. It’s refreshing and both scents smell amazing. The Body Shop only do this in Coconut and Moringa, but I love both of them.
Urban Decay | Naked 1 Palette
This is by far my favourite palette. My safe go to look is this palette, as it’s everything I love. My favourite shade is Sidecar as it’s makes a stunning lid colour. I know a few people complain that this palette doesn’t have enough mattes; which it doesn’t. I love a shimmer though, so I don’t mind.
Redken | One United All in One Multi Benefit Treatment
I included this in my January favourites (where some of the text is pink, and I have no idea how to change it) I still love it now. I’m on the same bottle, but getting towards the end of it. It’s lasted over a year, so I really can’t complain. This was a lifesaver on holiday, because I normally struggle with getting the bobble out of my hair after a trip to the beach, but this made it so easy to get out. You can use this on wet hair or dry hair, so it’s a great all-rounder. It also has 25 benefits, so you can cut down on the amount of products you need to travel with.
I went on Holiday in January last year and was happy to go to the beach and go in the sea. This is a massive thing for me, as I used to hate the beach. Mainly because I felt self-conscious, and it would get on top of me. I remember going to the beach a few years ago, and staying in my coverup laying underneath an umbrella, and I wouldn’t move. For 2017 I got myself off the sun-bed, and into the sea and made some absolutely amazing memories with my family.
The Body Shop | Lightening Drops
This was a lifesaver in 2017; drastic, but true. I’m really pale and often struggle to find foundations that match my ghostly complexion, so I started to mix a few drops of this into the foundation on the back of my hand. Which led to a much better match. I’m on my third bottle now, as I use it pretty much everyday. I was a little unsure at first because of the price, but they are really worth it. The only problem I have, is that I aren’t keen on the little dropper, because I find that it doesn’t dispense the product very well/ easily.
My Mum Got Married
(A little worse for wear)
It was the most beautiful day, and so fun too. It is a day I will never forget, as everything about it was spot on. It’s the first wedding I’ve been involved in, and the whole getting ready process is so fun, but it seemed to go fast. One minute we were having breakfast and then it seemed to fly into needing to get into the dresses. It still feels strange that my mum has a different surname to me now, but I’m hoping it’ll settle in soon.
ColourPop | Super Shock Highlight in Spoon
I don’t know what happened this year, but I started to love a really intense glittery highlight. I know a lot of people don’t like chunky highlighters that contain lots of glitter, but this one has definitely been an exemption for me. It’s not the strongest colour, but it leaves you glistening and glittering like there’s no tomorrow. It’s fab for nights out, but once you get used to wearing it; every other highlight seems subtle.
Spectrum | Tall Tapered Blender B06
(Yes it’s dirty, don’t judge me)
I use this brush every time I do my eyeshadow, as it’s amazing. It’s the perfect shape that’s amazing for blending and applying a transition colour. Spectrum brushes in general are some of my favourites, but the B06 wins hands down.
The Co-Operative Irresistible Triple Chocolate Cookies
I know it’s New Year and January is always health kick season, but you really need to try these cookies. They are by far the best ones I’ve tried, and not to brag, but I’ve tried a lot of Triple Chocolate Cookies. These are a little pricey in cookie terms, but they’re worth it. I used to work at Co-Op, and I mainly miss it for the discount, so I could get these. (No Shame)
Too Faced | Hangover 3 in 1 Setting Spray
I love Too Faced; the pink, girly packaging draws me in every-time, but it’s not so bad, as the products are amazing. I’m now on my second bottle of this, as I use it for the three uses, but always end up spraying too much. It contains Coconut Water which is amazing for dry skin, so not only is it moisturising; it smells good too.
Creating a Scrapbook
I’ve always loved the ideas of scrapbooks, but I never bothered with it, as I always put it off. In 2017 I was contacted by Printiki to try some prints, and I felt like that was the kick I needed. This isn’t sponsored or anything either, I just really love their prints. It’s amazing to be able to look back at memories that aren’t on a screen.
Congratulations for getting to the end! That turned out a lot longer than I thought, but it was hard to narrow down.
