Long time no see, people, huh? I can completely blame myself for neglecting my blog but in the last couple of weeks I was indeed busy, and there was no time to put something on this blog… However, I already promised myself to be a bit more active throughout 2016, so we’ll see…
First of all, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everyone. I hope you all had some quality time with your family and friends, stuffed your tummies with a-m-a-z-i-n-g food, and received presents that you wanted for a long time :). Tomorrow is the 1st of January, and, as Brad Paisley once said: “Tomorrow, is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one!”.
Today I decided to put together my favourite products/items of 2015, so that you could see what products I’ve been loving throughout 2015. So, without further explanation, let’s jump into my 2015 favourites.
I have attempted to split my favourites to some sort of categories such as body care, hair care, face care, make-up and random bits and bobs.
If you read my blog, you probably already know that my ultimate favourite hair care product is…yes… the Body Shop Grape Seed Glossing Serum. I already did a post about this amazing product, so check it out here.
Another 2015 favourite is Bleach London Silver Conditioner. You’re probably now wondering why I am using a silver conditioner if I am not blonde? But this is not 100 per cent true since a couple of months ago I started dying my hair using belayage technique. And to maintain my highlights, I’ve been using this conditioner. It helps to get rid of that ginger/orange colour of my dyed hair. I absolutely love this product, and I will be soon making a separate blog post about it.
The ultimate favourites of my face care are the Body Shop Tea Tree Foaming Cleanser and Avèn Thermal Water. I already spoke about this thermal water in my previous post, so you can check my thoughts about it. Talking about TBS cleanser, I just really love it. I use it religiously, and I believe, it is an amazing product for people who sometimes have breakouts. As you probably all know, tea tree is known for its ability to fight with pimples, so check this cleanser if you are looking for an affordable and effective product.
Well, as some of you know, I am not the biggest fan of the body care products but this year I found two amazing products. The first one is the Collistar Intensive Firming Cream which has already been mentioned in one of my first blog posts. Another product has to be the Almond Hand and Nails Cream by the Body Shop. It’s a super hydrating cream that sinks into your skin quickly and smells like heaven. My mum loves it too, so definitely check it out.
Cosmetics wise, I found two super amazing products that are part of my daily make-up routine. The first one is the Bobbi Brown BB Cream in light. This BB Cream feels light on the skin, perfectly matches my skin tone and stays on my skin throughout the day. I could not recommend it enough. It’s a super good product with SPF that is suitable for everyday use although it’s a bit pricey. But, believe me, a little goes a long way, so you won’t need to repurchase it any time soon.
Another make-up fave is L’Oreal Miss Manga Mascara. It’s an ultimate discovery for me as I am really picky about the mascaras. It’s a unique mascara as its wand is flexible, therefore, it hits all the lashes. In addition, this mascara adds volume without looking ‘unnatural’. It’s super black and easy to work with. Although I am a massive fan of Maybelline mascaras, this one definitely works as well as Maybelline ones.
Random bits and bobs
If someone asks what is my all time favourite perfume, I don’t have an answer. But this year I found a scent that I particularly loved. I am quite sure though that next year I will have a new fave…but my favourite perfume this year is DOT by Marc Jacobs. Since I’m really rubbish at explaining/describing smells, I just copied-pasted the description from the internet.
Surprising and effervescent, energetic and alive—DOT by Marc Jacobs captures a charming, upbeat spirit with timeless sophistication. Simple and straightforward in statement, exuberant and feminine in design, DOT is a colorful Marc Jacobs creation that comes full circle with a balance of modernity and elegance.
The last random favourite is definitely a book about the 5:2 diet by Dr Michael Mosley and Mimi Spencer. It’s a book about the 5:2 diet and its principles that are life changing. I won’t be telling anything more this time since I will be talking about this book in my future posts 🙂
So, these are my 2015 favourites. I already know that some of these things will be in my faves’ list of 2016. Do you have any items that you loved throughout 2015? If yes, share them below 🙂
See you all very soon.
