13 From 2013.

Another year over in the blink of an eye and of course another set of yearly favourites to share. I was brutal and kept it to thirteen (& to save us all from a multi-part postathon, I can't be bothered with that!). A lot has changed this year in terms of beauty for me, I became even more involved and obsessed with all things skincare and also made the switch to organic and green brands only (though a few non-green favourites have made the cut as that was only a few months ago!) I can't even begin to describe how happy I am with my choice to switch, it's kind of liberating not obsessively visiting Boots multiple times a week.

3. Seventeen Stay Time Concealer 



Thirteen of my absolute favourites which have all been mentioned on the blog a quite a lot this past year.. some perhaps a little too much at times (that RMS powder...) but I wouldn't be without them. If I had to pick an ultimate favourite it would have to be the Elemental Herbology Moisture Milk, one of my best skincare discoveries all year and a total miracle worker, mine has nearly run out now and I may weep (it is however in the january sales!)

I can't wait to see how my favourites change again next year!


  1. Butter London's Black Knight is such a beautiful polish xx

  2. Some amazing finds this year, and some that I'd love to try myself! Maybe they'll be some of my fave products of 2014 :) x

  8. I'm starting the transition into clean beauty, but, I have to admit--what I've done in the skincare department has made my skin go mad. This post was very helpful, though. xo
