My 2015 Favourites...

Thursday, 31 December 2015

2015 will be over and done with in a few hours, and again we will all have a clean slate of a year. Firstly, I want to thank you all immensely for your support with my blog this year, as I definitely couldn't have got this far without all of you reading and commenting on here! Secondly, and as you have probably guessed from the title of this post, I will now be sharing a few of my favourite things from the past 12 months-some of the beauty, some of them fashion and the others...well a bit random!

Beauty

Nude Lipsticks-these have been my go to this year, after months of being totally washed out by lipstick shades that in no way suit me. Both of these two lipsticks are quite warm,with rather pinky undertones which I love-the one on the left being Mac Velvet Teddy and the one on the right Urban Decay Liar.


Real Techniques Brushes-I honestly can't believe that I took me till this summer to purchase some Real Techniques brushes, but I have to say it was worth the wait. A proud owner of the Core Collection, these brushes have definitely changed the way I do my makeup for the better.


Supercat Eyeliner-as a great lover of eyeliner, this product has been my saviour this year. From the image below you can see I now own three of these eyeliners, because it's better to be safe than sorry and as I use this particular product every single day (or near enough) I need to have some on standby!


Fashion

Topshop Coat-we have had a pretty mild winter in the UK (no snow to be seen, but a hell of a lot of rain) so I haven't really needed a big winter coat. However, this coat has been a wardrobe staple of mine for the past few months, due to its ability to be worn with everything and anything and still look fantastic.


M&S Jeans-I'm not one to buy many items of clothing from M&S, but I do have to say that the jeans in their Limited Collection are amazing. Mine are simple, black high-waisted ones that incredibly comfy and if my memory is correct they weren't even that expensive either. (Sorry, but I couldn't find a link to these, although they do have some similar on the M&S website).

New Look Brogues-these,by far, have been my favourite shoes this year. They must have been only £15 from New Look, but are some of the best shoes I have ever owned-pretty to look at, but so so comfortable as well. And it's only now that you can see a bit of wear on them, after a good 3/4 months of constant wearing.(Again with these shoes I couldn't find the exact ones, so have linked to a similar pair).


Miscellaneous

Victoria's Secret-when we first got a VS store in Birmingham, I didn't quite realise how obsessed I would get with the items inside of it. The underwear is to die for, not to mention the clothes and body sprays which smell beautiful.



Pretty Little Liars-this show served me well, and I spend the best part of six months (January through June) catching up to the current seasons. It really hooked me from the off, and I think I watched the first season in under a week! I love all the characters, all the twists and turns, and now cannot wait to see the new time jump episodes.

London-I was lucky enough to visit London twice this year, and I have to say it is one of my favourite places in England to go to. There is so much there to see, and also for me so many shops
 to visit! 


Well, thank you for an amazing year! Have a great New Year's Eve and a fantastic 2016!!!!

  4. Have you tried the Maybelline Master Precuse eyeliner? It's just as good, if not a little better than the Supercat one. I adore Velvet Teddy although I always struggle to choose between the that and Brave!
