2017 has been quite the year for me. I don’t know how else to describe it. I’m a little tired of this year, but I definitely had some good times. This is a collection of my favourite things from this year!
Timeless Elegance Ring by Pandora: This was actually something I purchased at the tail-end of 2016 but I wore it everyday of 2017. I love this ring. I think I love it so much because it wasn’t a gift, I didn’t need someone to buy it for me I kind of just bought it for myself.
Sleepy Cream by Lush: I’ve definitely said this before but I use this every night before bed. I’m obsessed with the scent, its very relaxing after a long day.
Love Letters of Great Men by Ursula Doyle: I loved this book! It’s the book referenced in Sex and the City where Carrie wants Big to write romantic vows for their wedding. The book is simply filled by the love letters of some of the most influential men in history.
BECCA X Chrissy Face Palette: I raved about this all summer and I still absolutely love this product. It’s filled with such lovely summer shades though I’ve been using the Rose Gold shade this winter and its worked out really well.
Modern Renaissance Palette by Anastasia Beverly Hills: Please please please ignore how gross my palette looks in the photograph. This was the eyeshadow palette of the year. I used this one the most out of all my palettes and loved how the shadows worked throughout the entire year.
NYX Colour Correcting Palette, Banana: I only discovered this a few months ago but it deserves to be in my favourites of 2017. This stuff is incredible. I used to use translucent powder to set my makeup and it’d make me go grey. This brightens my face and sets my makeup perfectly!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray with Aloe, Herbs and Rosewater: I can’t not use this product. I literally use it everyday and I’m about to be on my third bottle. It’s such an incredible product.
China Glaze Nail Polish, Meet Me in the Mirage: First of all, I don’t know why the link says its $30, I got mine for $10. I have been looking around alll year for a rose gold shimmery nail polish and this is the one I’ve been dreaming of.
Christie’s Maple Leaf Cookies: This is super Canadian of me, but these maple cookies have been my everything this year! I love these so much!
Generation Beauty 2017: This was an absolute blast! It was incredible to be around so many lovely people who love makeup just as much as I do! Meeting Nikita Dragun was also life goals this year!
I think that even though this year was harder, it has definitely been a year of growth and lessons. I’ve definitely grown to take care of my body a bit more, health wise. And also to take care of my mind and to do what I need to do for myself. Putting yourself first is so important, sometimes we need to be selfish.
