Happy New Year! It was SO hard to narrow down when putting this list together of my favorite products from 2015 but I think I have a good representation here! Most of these are self-explanatory but two products that were game-changers were beauty items of course. I have been looking for the "perfect" foundation for a long time. Honestly, it's safe to say I have tried almost every foundation sold at Sephora. This Make Up For Ever HD foundation stick has to be my all-time favorite! If you have super dry skin and like a really natural look with more medium coverage, this foundation is the one for you.
Another new holy grail is the Josie Maran "Argan Oil." I don't know why it took me so long to try this but last month my dry skin started getting out of control. I'm always scared to try new products because I have extremely sensitive skin but once I added this oil into my regimen it made a difference almost overnight. After using it for only a couple weeks, I have no dry patches and the redness I had on my cheeks from eczema has almost disappeared.
Can y'all believe 2015 is over?! It was one heck of a year with changing jobs, getting engaged, and starting the blog in April! Getting engaged was obviously the highlight of my year but aside from that, 2015 was incredibly challenging and brought a lot of questions to the forefront. I feel like 2015 was the year I had (and am still having) a quarter-life-crisis. Google it! It's a real thing.
Not to get too heavy but we had a medical emergency in the family (everything is okay now!) back in March that lead to such a moment of clarity. It taught me that (as cliche as it sounds) life is seriously SO short and you never know what the future is going to bring. Do the things that make you happy and pursue your dreams while you have the opportunity! That's a lesson that I'm hoping to take into 2016.
Going along with that lesson, fashion, beauty and writing are 3 things that I'm so passionate about and I look forward to every blog post. I'm hoping the blog continues to grow in 2016 AND I also want to start filming videos so look out for that! Thank you for all of your support! Starting a blog was scary but it has been such a blessing to connect with so many of you. Again, Happy New Year!
