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 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.

We’ve entered the most festive month of the year, which means it’s time for my November Favourites! Before I start decorating our annual gingerbread house and plugging in all my fairy lights to celebrate Christmas, I need to run through all the things that made November such an incredible month. From falling in love with some new heart shaped fashion pieces (get it), to having both a digital and real life spring clean, to seeing one of my favourite drag queens live, November shaped up to be one of my favourite months of the year!

Since I bought two Juvia’s Place palettes at the same time and already reviewed the Magic palette a couple of weeks ago, it’s only right to follow it up with its sequel – my review of the Zulu palette! This little baby is a limited edition palette from the brand which is still available to buy, but for how long, I’m not too sure. Although the 9 shadow palette leans more to the small side when compared to its 16 shadow sisters, its vibrant, bold and unique shades pack just the same punch, if not more. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on the palette, know how much I bought it for, get break downs of each shade and their performance, plus see swatches!
