Happy New Year, Babes! New Year, New Blog Content! Can I get a "whoop, whoop"!?
As I was planning out my new content and scheduling out January, I thought what better way to start off the New Year, than by telling you all about what I loved in 2019!? Obviously, this list isn't going to comprehensive as we just do not have that amount of time! Y'all know I'm a girl who likes to shop, collect, accumulate ... So let's get to the list of my favorite things, wherein inevitably I have forgotten something major. *Angel Emoji*
Let's start with Beauty items! The first thing on my list is $5.00, rivals the high-end counterpart, and WINS! And that is the new ELF Camo Concealer! Save your money, and kiss your Tarte Shape Tape goodbye! Available at Wal-Mart, Target, and Ulta!
My next beauty favorite is a mascara-no one is surprised-and it is Maybelline's Total Temptation Waterproof Mascara! Waterproof is KEY! Holds your curl, and doesn't transfer! And now for a favorite to take it ALL OFF! This makeup removing cloth, does exactly what it is supposed to, and it's under $7!
My next group of faves, is from the Entertainment category! Minus my absolute favorite form of entertainment: reading, as I will be bringing you my Top Ten Books of 2019 TOMORROW! Let's start with my favorite Podcast of 2019: Dolly Parton's America. This epic dive into the life and work of Queen Dolly was the most incredible, and enthralling piece of research I have experienced in a very long time! I am a massive music junkie, and would highly recommend this to anyone that loves music-related documentaries! Next is my favorite TV show of the year: Schitt's Creek! HANDS DOWN. I have several honorable mentions, but nothing comes close to the love I have for this show! And my favorite movie of 2019: Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood! I CANNOT tell you how much I absolutely LURVED this movie!! It has everything my vintage/retro/old soul needed! Honestly, the BEST casting! And that scene at the Playboy Mansion! Mama Cass! OMG! i was geeking out the entire time. I am NOT even going to go into how incredibly portrayed Sharon Tate and Charles Manson were; we would be here all day. ALL DAY!
The last few of my favorite things are just LIFE THANGS! The first: Dip Nails! I started dip nails this year and I am completely obsessed! I highly recommend this nail treatment over acrylic! The dip nail process takes the same amount of time, but it far less abrasive and tough on your nails! Speaking of tough: your nails are tough as nails with the dip!! I love, love, love it! Second life thing: headbands! If you follow me on any social media, or know me IRL, you know that headbands took over as my crowning headpiece in 2019! I especially love the turban knotted ones, pearls and adornments are an absolute PLUS! (Always) Third, and there is certainly no order to this list, is GAME NIGHT! I grew up with my parents hosting game nights and remember the feeling of love and community, and knew I wanted that in my life: whether I host, or go to another's game night, this has been one of the best things for my heart and soul in 2019-and it will be 100% continued throughout 2020 and beyond!
There are definitely far more favorites, and favorite memories, and I know I will be going through the next few days remembering things I should have included, but there ya have it! My 2019 Favorites in a nutshell! See y'all tomorrow with my Top Ten Books of 2019!
