As 2017 is coming to an end I wanted to re-cap my best purchases and finds of the year! As a blogger I like to always try new things/products and bring ya’ll only my favorite finds. Hope you enjoy the list below!
First up, my favorite mask of the year was this Super Collagen mask by Mario Badescu. I love the way this mask smells/feels and I can tell a difference in my skin after using it! I try to use it 2-3 times a week after I get out of the shower at night. Also this little tub will last you a long time and the price is really affordable compared to many out there so I use it the most!
Up next is Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate! I love this stuff and use it every night it really helps give you that glow. I use 2-3 drops every night, it smells like lavender so its great for your night time routine. It is oil but it did not make my skin break out and when I wake up in the morning my skin does not feel oily at all. I stopped using this for about a month to see if I could tell a difference and after about a week I could tell my skin looked dry and tired, I will always keep this in my night time routine!
Last of the skin care is this Powerful Strength Line-Reducing Concentrate! I’ve been using this for a couple months and can really tell a difference. The fine lines I have on my forehead have either gone away or really faded, plus this is infused with Vitamin C that really helps brighten your complection.
It’s been a big year of finding the best skin care routine for me!
My favorite perfume of 2017 was this one by YSL, I normally go through 3-4 fragrances a year and this has been my absolute favorite. It’s floral/feminine with the perfect about of intensity. I spray 2-3 sprits in the morning and Im good to go for the whole day.
This Nespresso machine definitely makes my list! If you watch my insta stories you probably see me using it a lot, I use it at least once a day if not more. It helped me break my Starbucks addiction since I can make my own triple shot latte 🙂 It will pay for itself and its also on major sale right now.
These booties have been my favorites this year, I loved my first pair so much I snagged a second pair when they went on major sale. For me they are the perfect height and colors, they go with everything and the material is really great. You can also transition them into Spring!
When we moved into our new house this year we bought a new dresser/nightstands for our house. We looked for a very long time and finally found these that we both fell in love with (dresser, nightstands). They really make a statement in our room and go with everything. We’ve had lots of friends and family over and do many home tours and these seem to be the main pieces we get lots of complements on!
This passport cover is more so one of my favorite gifts of 2017. Alex bought this for me before my first overseas trip for work early this year and I have enjoyed it ever since! We’ve traveled quite a bit this year and this passport cover has held up so well! Also has side pockets to hold and customs documents or other documentation. Plus I love the monograming you can get on it!
Jeans– I discovered a new brand this year and its the only brand I have bought ever since! They are affordable, which is key since I work in a casual work environment and wear jeans almost every day. They come in a variety of styles and sizing!
Hair- Ya’ll if you haven’t tried or do not have a Wet Brush, GET ONE IMMEDIATELY. I have super long, fine hair and it pretty much tangles if you look at it too hard. A friend told me about this brush earlier in the year and it has made brushing my hair SO MUCH easier! Especially after I take a shower, it is very gentle on your hair and prevents a lot of breakage.
Alex bought me this robe for our anniversary in October and I have been so attached to it ever since. I’ve never really been a robe person but I wear this every day when I am getting ready for the day and at night. Its SO soft and comfortable, easy to wash as well!
My last item is this holy grail make up product I will never again live without! I started using it after a saw another blogger rave about it (wish I could remember who!) And have not gone with out it since. I normally wear liquid foundation and was looking for something light (not cake-y) to wear over it and matify it and this did the trick! It give you an airbrush finish and helps blur out any imperfections. You can also wear it without foundation!
This wraps up my favorite finds/purchases of 2017. Tell me what are yours!
