2014 Favourites

I know I probably say this every single year when I realise the year is coming to an end but wow, this year has flown by! Welcome 2015, I hope you are full of good surprises, amazing memories and obviously new food discoveries :)

2014 shall definitely be remembered for all the good reasons since I stumbled upon some great new products that I have been addicted to using and many of which I have repurchased again and again throughout the year. So without rambling on, here are my beauty and non- beauty favourites.

1. Bioderma! Yes as dramatic as it sounds, this cleanser has changed my life. It was recommended to me a few months ago by a fellow friend (shout out to Maariyah if you ever read this!) and I was hooked from the first use. Theres nothing else to say other than it removes makeup and also cleans all the grime and dirt of your face leaving the skin smooth, even and completely breathable.

2.  I'm pretty sure I'm not the only person who wakes up most mornings, looks in the mirror and instantly thinks, great I look like a frog. :( Well whenever I do have one of those days I instantly reach for my amazing Collection lasting perfection concealer. It really does a great job at hiding dark circles, spots, blemishes and any other marks that need covering so I just had to add this to my great finds of 2014. And at only £4.19 this concealer is one of them products that should definitely be worth a lot more.  I would and have recommended this to every person i know!

3. Right then, on a more personal note, I have something to confess and although I try to hide and deny this dirty secret, theres too much evidence to suggest otherwise. so here it is: I'm addicted to buying statement necklaces. I've now lost count of how many I own and places to store them. It also doesn't help that every single high street shop comes out with new styles literally every month and put them on sale regularly. Having said that I don't just admire and hoard them, rather I believe an outfit isn't complete without a piece of jewellery so you'll never see me without a necklace on, unless of course I'm in my pj's or at the gym :)
It was extremely difficult to narrow it down and pick one, but I flipped through some pictures of me throughout the year and this one from Newlook seemed to be most popular. (and at £2.00 it was almost free!)

4.  My Fuji film instal mini was probably my favourite find of the year! As you might have guessed I love taking photos and this was perfect to capture them beautiful moments and the best part watching them print out instantly so you can share them with loved ones. 

5. So onto my favourite part: FOOD!! Well not exactly food, but my Nutribullet definitely helped me make the most delicious and nutritious juices and smoothies. Its a very powerful blender that is designed to help you get your 5 a day easily and well, it helped me achieve just that! At £99.99 its quite a splurge (luckily I got mine as a gift) but so worth it! 

6. Annnndd finally my last favourite of 2014 is actually an App called Brit + Co that I've been obsessed with. Its free to download and is filled with cute ideas, DIY's, recipes, things to buy, fashion and basically a little bit of everything is the best way to describe it. Rather than me rambling on, go download it now!!!

Well, thats just a few of my personal favourites, I would love to know what your favourites have been so feel free to leave me comments below. Heres to a great year and hopefully 2015 will bring even more amazing surprises.
