Due to blogging every week on a Sunday, it seems only right to use the final one of the year, which also happens to be the very last day of the year, to look back and reflect on some the things I did in 2017 – 17 things in fact. The last 12 months have been a whole lot of something. From surviving another year of university, to surviving merging into other lanes at high speeds in built up areas, to surviving ridiculous plebiscites, real life work experience, and the fact that I witnessed the one and only queen Adele perform live and lived to tell the tale, 2017 was definitely memorable. I’ll refrain from spoiling anymore points, because they’re all explained below! If you enjoy this post, please give it a “like” so I know, and let’s jump into the last blog post for 2017!
The end of the year is just days away, so before I start penning some ideas for what I want to achieve in 2018, it’s time to look back on my 2017 goals! This year was the first time I posted about my goals and then actively checked in with them during the year, and I’m so glad to see that this system was actually effective! Since I ticked off some of my big goals half way through the year, I felt quite accomplished and wasn’t so focused on the rest for the second half of 2017. Looking back on them now, most of these goals, particularly the whole concept of setting ‘beauty goals’, aren’t really relevant to me anymore, which I think is a great thing! It’s made me realise what’s important to focus on for 2018, and its shown where I can improve my goal setting.

Since I recently posted my 2017 Beauty Favourites and rounded up the best makeup products I discovered during the past 12 months, it only seems right to do the same for the non-beauty related things I mention in my monthly favourites! I always struggle with what title to give this post. Are they General Favourites? None-Materialistic Favourites I Can’t Capture in a Flatlay? This list is a big jumble of everything, so I’m settling with Lifestyle Favourites! Whether it be incredible TV shows that had me on the edge of my seat, novels that had me fighting sleep to stay up and read, or gadgets that made my mornings easier and more delicious, here’s a round up of all the things that just added to 2017!

Since the end of the year is fast approaching, it’s time to look back and celebrate the makeup products that helped make 2017 so beauty-ful! I was a full blown beauty junkie in 2016 and bought handfuls of eyeshadows palettes, expensive brushes and a ton of liquid lipsticks
all in the same shade of pinky mauve. While my makeup hauls in 2017 have been fewer (and kinder to my bank account), I have definitely found some ride or dies in the last 12 months. Exactly a year ago today I published my 2016 Beauty Favourites, and even though I still use those products all the time, I decided to not mention any of them (with the exception of one) in this post to avoid repetition! So get comfortable, give this post a “like” if you enjoy it and let’s dive into my 2017 Beauty Favourites!
I’m jetting off to Europe for a few weeks in January for a university course, so along with throwing gloves, down jackets and thermals into my suitcase, I’ve also been deciding which makeup I’ll be taking with me! While this isn’t set in stone, this is definitely the general gist of what I’ll be taking with me and why.
