My 2016 Favourites

I don't really do monthly favourite posts and not much changes from month to month. Instead at I like to do these yearly posts where I discuss all my favourites from the previous year.

001. Hurraw Lip Balm
I first got introduced to this lip balm from my subscription to LoveLula box, March box. I love this lip balm so much, I like to apply it every night, I think I like it because it's waxy so it's really hydrating my lips while not leaving them sticky. By applying it most nights it's meant that over the summer and winter when my lips can get really dry it's helped to reduce it and so I haven't suffered from dry lips. It's cruelty-free and vegan too. I need to pick up more perhaps in different scents.

002. Niomi Smart
I've followed Niomi for a couple of years now but this year she has easily become one of my favourite vloggers, I've been loving her content. Also in September Niomi brought out a book, Eat Smart, which I got. Niomi is plant based and has some really great recipes that taste great but also use everyday foods.  

003. Lush Tea Tree Spray
I know I had this in my 2015 favourites but I have to include it again this year because I love it so much. For a couple of months I've been using the tea tree tablets but a couple of moths ago I splashed out and bought myself a new bottle. Integrated into my skincare routine I've found it to do wonders for my skin, it helps to reduce my acne. I like to use it every morning and evening to keep my skin refreshed, remove dirt and spots at a minimum.

004. Barry M Nail Polish in Cappuccino
I love shades like this one which is a grey tone with a purple undertone, I have similar ones in other brands but this year I found one that Barry M do. I love Barry M nail polishes because they are cruelty-free, cheap and really good formula.  

005. Neals Yard Remedies x Deliciously Ella Moisturiser
I've done a full review of this moisturiser along with the facial wash a couple of moths ago. However, I've chosen to include just the moisturiser as it's my favourite out of the two. I know some people don't like it because there is a strong scent of rose, but I really don't mind that scent. I also find it to be really moisturising but without being heavy and greasy. It's defiantly helped my skin look more radiant and feel smoother.

006. Blogosphere Magazine
I only got round to buying a subscription and I'm so happy I did and should have done it sooner. I love that it focuses on bloggers and is made especially for bloggers. I love all the interviews - my favourite was with Ella Grace Denton, it also offers great advice I love the Agony Aunt section whit all relatable bloggers problems. I look forward to the next issues to be released. It's so nice to actually get it in the post and read it rather than it being online.

007. Mario Beau
I discovered this brand earlier this year after hearing Kylie Jenner and a few other celebrities raving about one of their products, kinda weird I know. I decided to give them ago after always hearing such good review so I went online and actually spoke to them where they recommend me some products for my skin. I picked up the whitening mask, their anti-acne serum which has really helped reduce those sore red spots and the spots that sit under the skin. I also got the drying lotion, this is what everyone raved about, it's specifically for whiteheads, I dab some on and they are reduced overnight and gone in a couple of days.

008. Daniel Wellington Watch
I got this watch for Christmas last year and I don't think I've taken it off ever since I wear it nearly every day. I love it because it's so simple and classic, I got mine in the brown and gold combination and found that it can go with any outfit I wear to make it look complete. I would love to expand and perhaps get a silver one.

009. Too Faced, Better Than Sex Mascara
This past year I've been focusing more on my skincare routine than my makeup collection. However on the days where I choose to wear makeup, I will always go for this mascara, sometimes I just wear it with nothing else because it just makes your eyes pop. I love it because it really lengthens and adds volume to my lashes without making them heavy or feel clumpy - I hate it when mascaras do that. I think I may just have to purchase the waterproof version as well.

010. Bloggers & Vloggers
There are so many amazing bloggers and bloggers I've discovered over the past year. I did a twitter thread of some of my favourites but I'm just going to list them for you now on here. You should go and check them all out as they are all brilliant!
