Best of 2012 Tag!

Best of 2012 Tag

Now that 2012 is over, it's time for favorites of the year. I'm so excited for 2013, let's hope it's one of our best years ever!

I got this tag from hkitty1122's video. If you haven't seen it, check it out!

Now, on to the favorites!

1. Face product
I would have to say my Mabelline Dream Matte powder in medium Honey. I use it with a powder puff to set my undereye concealer and on my t-zone. Amazing. Stays matte all day!

2. Cheek product
I'm not a huge fan of blush or highlighters, so I am going to go with my Two Faced Chocolate Soleil bronzer. I love that it smells like cocoa, and it isn't orange at all. Perfect for contouring!

3. Eye product
DEFINITELY rediscovered my love for the Urban Decay Primer Potion. Many nights I went to bed without taking my makeup off [ I know, tisk tisk ], but when I woke up in the morning my eye makeup didn't move at ALL! It's too legit to quit :]

4. Lip Product
The Revlon Kissable Just Bitten balm stains. My favorite is Honey and they are amazing. Can't say anything better than amazing.

5. Skincare Product
My Aveeno Positively Radiant moisturizer. I have semi-sensitive combination skin and this works great. Other moisturizers either make my face oily or clog my pores. Not this one.

6. Nail Polish
Anything Sinful Colors. I have almost all of the colors. They have great staying power, and I can go a good week plus without them chipping. A favorite is their color Easy Going. It's a perfect light pink that just make your hands look polished and put together. As for a top coat, this will never change - Seche Vite!

7. Hair product
My Dove Hair Therapy Oil Care detangler. I have a full review post on it if you want to check it out!

8. Body product/Perfume
Versace Bright Crystal perfume! I also got Lady Gaga's Fame for Christmas and I'm really enjoying it.

9. Clothing piece
My Old Navy Rockstar skinny jeans! They are so comfortable and don't choke my ankles. I got them in every color. I lived in them. Also, any type of legging.

10. Accessory
Scarves! This year is the first year that I really got into them. They add pizazz to any outfit. I wear mostly black and neutrals, so having a choice of pops of color was awesome.

11. Pair of shoes
I have 2 - my Uggs and my riding/combat boots! Both look so cute with skinny jeans.

12. Favorite TV Show/Movie
The Dark Knight Rises! Need I say more?

13. Favorite book
I'm going with The Hunger Games series. I know there was a lot of hype about the 50 Shades series, but I LOVED and was completely engrossed in the Hunger Games. The movie did the book no justice. The book wins hands down.

14. Food
I love food. No way I can pick.

15. Beverage
Coffee. Crystal Light To-Go. Tangerine margaritas.

16. Favorite song
This I can't answer. I have SO many. I love music. Hmm, honorable mentions? Locked Out Of Heaven by Bruno Mars. I'm Different by 2Chainz. Anything Lindsey Stirling. She's amazing.

Well that was easy. I hope you enjoyed, and I tag everyone! I love seeing what everyone else liked for the year. Like I said, I'm glad 2012 is over and I'm ready to start fresh in 2013! I wish a good year to all of you :]

Lots of Love,

Little Black Bag - initial impressions

Today I signed up for my first subscription service, Little Black Bag!

Signing up was easy, you pick your first item from a 49.95 or 29.95 category and then the "stylists" pick 2 more items and add them to your bag.

The most interesting and fun part is the trading! If you don't like what the stylists picked, you "trade". For each item they picked, there is a number of people who want it and are willing to trade something from their bag for it. I had so much fun doing it! It's incredibly addicting.

You can either buy just one shipment, or sign up for a monthly shipment in the category you wish (the 49.95 or the 29.95).

I can't wait to receive my box! I am going to do a blog post 'unboxing' so be sure to look out for that.

I have a promo code for anyone who wants to sign up. You get free shipping and a free extra gift!

I really think this is something that I am going to enjoy, I think the readers I have and the people I read would love it as well. Designer names for mega cheap?! Um, yes please!

Thanks for reading!

Plus, part of my new year's resolutions is to get back in the swing of things on my blog, so check your feeds often, my face will be there more!

Lots of love,
