# 7: The Tom Ford perfume of my dreams, which I finally splurged on during Sephora's VIB sale! It smells crisp, clean, and exactly like an Italian seaside vacation--I can't get enough of it! Mandarino Di Amalfi is also a great runner up, and is slightly more citrus-y!
# 6: Allllllll the sheet masks. I got into regular sheet masking several months ago, and my favorites are the $2 sheet masks from Skinfood (so affordable, and they often have sales where they're buy 5, get 5 free) but another great brand is TonyMoly, which you can order from Sephora and Ulta, but are the best deal in bulk from Amazon!
#5: Staying in line with skincare, a 2016 introduction that I'm obsessed with is the Clarisonic Mia Fit. It's super portable for when I travel, and I actually prefer the "delicate" brush head that this comes with! My skin feels so incredibly clean after, and all my expensive skin care works much for effectively!
# 3: This Chanel bag is not exactly an "affordable" favorite, but I would be remiss not to include it. I've been using this caviar leather Coco Handle a ton this year, and it's held up SO well (and it better, for the price!). While I know not everyone can or wants to spend a lot of money on a designer bag, this purchase made me so happy and I smile whenever I use it!
# 2: In case you can't tell by my skincare favorites above, I struggled a bit with skin this year. I was suffering from hormonal acne (yay!), so my light/med coverage foundations just weren't cutting it. I did lotssss of research on Sephora, and also at the recommendation of my boo Sarah, I tried out the Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation. Let's just say, LIFE CHANGED. Full coverage but not cakey if applied with a damp Beauty Blender, and so, so long wearing. Obsessed!
# 1: Okay....I don't know if I've mentioned it on this blog yet, but come on. You knew this was coming, right? Toward the end of 2016, Thanh and I got engaged! So naturally, one of my favorites is the ringggg. ;)
What were some of your favorites from 2016? I'd love to check them out and maybe find some new favorites for 2017! Happy New Year!
