 Hey, guys~ Happy new year to everyone! Hope you had a great one! Here's a new post for you all, a list of some of my favorite items from last year. Obviously, these aren't all of them because a lot happened in 2016 and I got some awesome items throughout the year that just won't fit in a blog post. So, let's get started!

First off on the list is a fashion item and that's this planet chocker from h&m! To establish my space hoe persona, of course! haha! But seriously, I fell soooo hard for chockers last year and I'll continue to be for 2017 as well. I have so many now but this planet one was the first so yay!

Last year was the one where I discovered how important skincare was and one of the first items I bought that wasn't like a cleanser or moustirizer was this YesTo Cucumbers Soothing EyeGel. I've been having hardcore skin issues and dryness around my eyes and putting this one before going to sleep definitely improved it! It was on sale when I got it AND it's paraben-free and cruelty free. You guys should check it out!

The best thing to happen last year though, is when Lush openened up a store here in Puerto Rico and one of the very first things I bought was this conditioner. Lush's Veganese Conditioner is a lemon scented lightweight conditioner. I liked it better when I first got it and had shorter hair but it's definitely not for longer hair folks because that does not work then. But it's good for thin or short hair! And the scent is super amazing! This opened my eyes to Lush and all the wonders which is perfect.

I haven't told you guys yet but I've been trying really hard to be cruelty-free when it comes to makeup and skincare but... sadly, Mac is my weakness. I refuse to buy anything new but I can't force myself from throwing away all my Mac lipsticks! I just can't! I'm sorry! Out of my favorites though is this blue-toned red lipstick in super gorgeous packaging, it's the Charlotte Olympia Special Edition Lipstick in Starlett Scarlet. It's a really matte shade and little bit drying but I don't care too much about that considering how freaking gorgeous the packaging is! Sadly, the collection is all gone so there's no chance for you guys to get it unless you did when it was on stock!

 I've used a lot of palettes this last year, including the Naked3 palette that I got for my birthday but this most recent one that is pictured above probably beats that out of the water. I love the Naked3, I do, but it's a bit too powder-y sometimes and can leave you with a lot of fallout. This baby though... is amazing. All of these four shades have a bit of glow to them so there's no matte shades but I don't mind too much using another outside shade for the crease. The Pacifica Enlighten Eye Brightening Eyeshadow Palette is perfect if you want easily blended and beautiful shadows. I bought this last summer in Ulta when I was visiting my friend in Indiana. It was my first time in Ulta and I picked this up because it was affordable and a natural, cruelty-free option plus it looked beautiful as heck! Also the little message on the top when it open the palette is the cutest thing and I smile every time I see it.

A quick little one is my iphone cover that I also bought in the summer when I went to the states, it's the SkinnyDip London iPhone Cover in Glitter Unicorns. I saw it and it just scremed at me to buy it, it's very me, I think. Very on brand with this blog too haha!

The last thing on my faves list is music. If you follow me on twitter or tumblr, you know that I'm pretty darn obsessed with kpop but sadly, I don't own any kpop albums to show you guys (maybe this year!! who knows!!). Between my favorite albums are: Troye Sivan's Blue Neighbourhood, Halsey's Badlands, Melanie Martinez's Crybaby, Little Mix's Weird People & Carly Rae Jepsen's Emotion Side B. The last one I down own on physical copy either but it's waaaay too good to not mention because I literally live for that album and her Emotion one. You should go listen to it right now if you haven't because it is truly iconic.

And that's it for my 2016's favorites! Leave me a comment, letting me know what some of your favorites from this year~ Don't forget to follow me on bloglovin' for new posts and I'll be seeing you babes real soon!💖

    1. Yes!! and yeah, Lush can be pretty expensive but the way I look at it is that Lush is more high-end. So, if you compare the prices of skincare and bath stuff is sephora, lush is actually pretty affordable. A cleanser I've had an eye on for a while is $14, and I think it's pretty worth it!
