My 2017 Beauty and Lifestyle Favourites

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing with you my beauty and lifestyle favorites of last year. I really wanted to have this, and my previous, post uploaded in January but sometimes life just throws us curve balls. Anyways guys! Let’s go ahead and get started.

1. Louis Vuitton Pochette Metis – This was probably my best purchase of 2017. This bag just works for my lifestyle. I love small cross-body bags but they generally never seem to fit enough things. This bag, however, is the perfect hybrid between a small cross-body and a bag big enough to carry everyday essentials. An added bonus is that it goes with almost anything in your wardrobe.

2. Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Hydra-Gel Eye Patches – I don’t think it’s a secret that I have under-eye bags. They are significantly more pronounced on days that I am tired or if I haven’t had enough sleep the night before. I have tried a lot of products to help with diminishing the appearance of my bags but they simply don’t work. At least, with this product, you can see a noticeable difference. It’s not a major difference but it’s a difference that you can see nonetheless.

3. Cetaphil RestoraDerm Eczema Calming Body Moisturizer – This is my Holy Grail product; the product I would need if I were stranded on a desert island. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have heard me say several times how I suffer from persistent dry skin. That’s partially due to the fact that I have eczema and I used to have these really dry patches on my face that just wouldn’t go away. That is, until I found this product. Yes, I know it’s not a facial moisturizer, but I use it as one because this is what works for me. I repurchase this product every single month without fail. I simply cannot live without it.

4. Tory Burch Earrings – This particular pair is from the Outlets and I have them in silver and gold. These are the earrings I wear everyday, if I am going to work, if I am going to the supermarket, if I am running errands. They are great and I love them!

5. Pat McGrath Labs MatteTrance Lipstick Elson - I love a red lipstick! Who doesn’t? For the longest time, my go-to red lipstick was Ruby Woo. Don’t get me wrong, I still love it but it is very drying. I wanted to find something that was still matte, but not as drying to the lips with a smoother application. That’s when I came across Pat McGrath MatteTrance lipstick in the color Elson. I LOVE the formula of this lipstick.

6. First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream – I didn’t buy this product at first. It was one of those free gifts you receive from Sephora when you have accumulated enough points. I’ve been using my sample as a hand cream that I carry around in my bag. Mainly because, for some reason, my hands are just always dry. I loved the formula but I still wanted to give other hand creams, that I had heard great things about, a try. Long and short of this story is that after a couple of months of trying several creams, I went back to Sephora and purchased a full size tube of this product and now we are inseparable.

7. Bauble Bar Celene Cutout Bangle Bracelets – I have had these for a while. I bought them in 2016 when I was heading to Cancun. I ended up wearing them a ton in 2017 and, for costume jewelry, they’ve stood up well.

8. Makeup Forever Ultra HD Invisible Cover Foundation – This foundation has provided me with the best color match since I have been buying foundation and, for that reason, it has made this list.

9. Louis Vuitton Lockit Mule Flat Sandals – I bought these as a souvenir of my trip to Spain and I have worn them to death ever since. In my mind “luxury” items are only worth the price tag if you wear/use them all the time. If you are buying it to admire it, it’s a waste of money (my opinion only).

10. Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb Bloom – I don’t think you can go wrong with this perfume, regardless of the scent. The original Flowerbomb is, by far, my favorite perfume. In the spring of 2017, however, I was looking for something that was just a little lighter for that period of time. I tried so many perfumes but I wasn’t coming across anything I loved. One day, randomly browsing the internet, I came across an article introducing Flowerbomb Bloom. I set out on a hunting expedition to find it and what an expedition it was! It took me 2 to 3 months to finally track this particular perfume down in-store. I sampled and subsequently fell in love. I’ve been using it ever since.

I hope you have enjoyed today’s blog post. I have a lot of fun posts planned for the next 2 months so I hope you stick around. Talk to you soon.
