Happy new year! 2015 is over and done with and we have welcomed in a new year of 2016!
This year has been a good one for me – I finished my LPC (legal practice course, the compulsory course for Solicitors following your Law Degree) with a Distinction, started this lovely little blog in July to fill the void that studying left (which I never thought I’d say!!) and loved every second, started my job as a Trainee Solicitor, finally got to go on a holiday to the Big Apple NYC and saw many comedians and bands lives including McBusted twice and Ed Sheeran twice my absolute faves.
So far nothing exciting is planned for 2016 bar having to hand in my Masters dissertation but apart from that I can focus on growing my little blog and see where it takes me!
So without further ado lets take a look at my favourites for the past year-
Garnier Micellar Water
My most used discovery of 2015 and one I’ve replaced over and over again! It’s such a good and inexpensive way to remove make up and leaves the skin feeling super clean!
Makeup Revolution Palettes
MR is one of the brands I only discovered this year and I absolutely love it! Their eyeshadow palettes are amazing quality and value and last ages – I would buy these over high end palettes any day!
Maybelline Go Colossal Mascara
My go to mascara for volume! I always use this last on top of any mascara I use and have repurchased this many times. A firm fave in the mascara department!
Mac Lipstick in Velvet Teddy
Again I only really discovered MAC in 2015 and Velvet Teddy has to be my ultimate fave due to its versatility and ability to go with anything! I love the finish and its long lasting.
Eyelure Brow Gel
Something I am so grateful exists and one I have repurchased many times! A staple in my makeup bag and is an absolute brow saviour! Especially if you don’t have time to fill in the brows a slick of this can tide you over and tidy up in the mean time!
No7 Beautifully Matte Foundation
A firm fave foundation as its long lasting throughout the day, easy to blend and has a gorgeous matte finish without being drying! One bottle has lasted me ages and I will repurchase when it’s finished!
Real Techniques Brushes
Another 2015 discovery and I wouldn’t be without them now! I purchased both the face and eye starter packs and I’m so glad I did. They’re great quality as withstand lots of washing and usage!
Lush Lip scrub
Not pictured here as I forgot as it stays in my bathroom! This has definitely been my year of Lush discovery and this has been by far my most used. My favourite flavour is Mint Julep but Bubblegum comes in at a very close second! I use these daily and will repurchase when they run out!
Has anyone else tried these or chosen these as favourites of the year? Let me know below!
