Hello my lovelies! This is the last day of 2014 and therefore the last post on kavichick2000 this year! This year has gone so quickly, but it has been such a good one for me and I think it’s safe to say it has been the best year of my life so far. How has your year been?
To conclude the year, I wanted to do a summary of my favourite things this year. I’ve decided to divide this post into four categories : Beauty, Fashion, Blogs and Random. For each of the topics I’ll talk about my favourite products/things this year. You’ll get the point when I start, so without further ado, onto the Hall Of Fame 2014!
Eyes – I decided that this Real Techniques Eyeshadow Brush is brilliant because I can use it for so many things, like blending, smudging, applying and creating a cut crease look. Plus, I picked this up at the start of the year for only £3 so it’s definitely worth the money! The Makeup Revolution ‘Hard Day’ Palette has smashed it out the court for me. It has so many different colours and I can use it for every occasion, and the £6 price tag makes it especially worth purchasing. I of course had to pick a mascara and the one (or two) I chose was L’oreal Volume Million Lashes ‘So Couture’ and Maybelline The Falsies. They both work a dream at keeping my eyelashes long, separated and voluminousness all day long.
Face – We all know that Kavi loves a good contour, so the Sleek Face Contour Kit does just the trick. I love this one so much but I can tell soon I’m going to hit pan! I love look healthy and flushed, so this Maybelline Bouncy Blush is right up my street. A creamy, peachy, dewy blush that makes me look sweet and innocent whatever the season 😉
Lips – Ever since I picked up this red lipstick I haven’t stopped talking about it. I love how the Collection lipstick in ‘Valentine’ makes me feel very feminine and confident. I need to try some more red lipsticks, I seem to be drawn to Bourjois’ Velvet lip stains but I would love some of your recommendations. I also have been loving EOS lipbalms this year, as have many other girls because the packaging is awesome. One of my favourites is the blue one called ‘Sweet Mint’.
Nails – You should’ve guessed it by now that Barry M has been by far the best nail polish brand for me this year. The majority of the nail polishes I own are from, and I don’t think there is one that I dislike! ‘Vintage Violet’ a deep and mysterious purple, ‘Blueberry’ a high shine gelly blue, and ‘Black’ have definitely been my favourite colours this year.
Fragrance – I am a lover of perfume, I have way too many in my collection and don’t stop buying more. This year, Alien (a musky scent), Glam A Lot (a sexy feminine scent) and Pure Seduction (a summery fruity scent) have been spritzed onto my clothes and body multiple times. They all smell brilliant and I wear them no matter what season/occasion.
Hair – If I’m honest with you, the only haircare product I haven’t stopped using this year is the Tangle Teezer. It simply is my lifesaver as I have such knotty, dry, frizzy and curly hair. No matter what your hair type, you need this wonder brush!
Brand – Makeup Revolution. I only have a few products from them but I am planning to go crazy and buys tons more! The packaging is fantastic, the quality of the products are nearly high end worthy and the price puts a smile on everyone’s face. Plus the people behind the brand are all so lovely, which makes the brand even better!
I don’t have too many fashion favourites, in fact they are just essentials that I think everyone needs. I love love love the Topshop jeans and always find myself wearing them, here I have the Leigh and the Kristen jeans. H&M do the best crop tops ever, great quality, great fit and a great price.
Shop – H&M. I’m sorry but I’m in love with this shop and my whole wardrobe is slowly being overtaken by this brand. The prices are so purse friendly but the quality is still top-notch, so you’re winning both ways!
I love and read so many blogs, I must follow over 1000 of them, so it was damn hard to pick my favourites. But this year, the one that always stands out to me is thelovecatsinc, written by Helen. Her photography is incredible, her theme is so simplistic and chic, she makes the best food and generally her posts are brilliant. Also, What Olivia Did is another firm favourite – her fashion posts are drool worthy and she always has the most unique post ideas! Lastly, Beth from BeautyInBeta is always one of my favourite people. This girl is lovely, writes an amazing blog, comes up with brilliant ideas and has a crazy cat who pops up in all her videos. She’s so humble and genuinely kind it makes me smile, and I’m so lucky to have met her twice!
My favourite book series has to be hush, hush and I am Four. These series are brilliant and each book is consistently good, which is key in a series. LOL is an amazing movie and I want to watch it again and again! The plot is brilliant, and I love all the characters – you must go and see it if you haven’t already! Of course I’ve been loving watching Gossip Girl this year, it is so hooking and dramatic, I love it! Do you watch it? I have loved so many things and still do, but music wise Ed Sheeran and Arctic Monkeys are artists I’ve fallen head over heels for!
I have of course loved all of you, and am thankful for every single one of you who have read my little ramblings here on kavichick2000. I don’t think y’all know how grateful I am!
Here’s to another great year, I’ll see you in 2015!!
Thanks for reading,
