T-minus 4 days until we drop some glitter balls, tipsily stumble through the countdown from 10, and land in 2016. Heh. That came around fast, didn’t it. We’ve all said how horrifically quickly 2015 went by (seriously, what was that????) and it kind of does feel like January 1st was a couple of days ago… but here we are.
So I’m using this space to have a look back at my best of 2015 here on the blog, and some of my absolute favourite posts from the girls and guys that I follow. Because tv around this time is usually a bit naff, and you’ve gotta do something when you zone out 20 minutes into the films… 😉
Little Miss Fii:
you guys really enjoyed my ‘is it worth it’ posts, where I bought things from ‘blogger fave’ online stores Romwe and Choies. The Romwe review is my all time most read post, and the Choies shoe post is not far behind.
I’m trying to share more Korean skincare and beauty here, since it’s something that’s really picking up in the west now, and it’s still seen as something a lil bit wacky. I wrote about my 2015 Korean cosmetic haul from Kococolor (a reputabe seller that doesn’t jack prices), along with a few bits I picked up from rubyruby too. You all enjoyed that, so I’m hoping to share a few more places to buy from in 2016 🙂
I also reviewed The Face Shop’s rice water bright cleansing oil, which quickly took the top spot in my beauty regime, and has really helped my skin. I also found that the IASO toner and emulsion I was kindly sent to try this year have helped too, proving that my skin much prefers the Korean skincare products this year…
|One ok rock in manchester – dec ’15|
this month I tried not to cry when I saw my favourite band play in Manchester, and for the rest of 2015 I’ve managed to travel more to places that I’ve really wanted to go (Brighton) and a country that I, almost surprisingly, fell in love with: Slovenia.
