One of my favorite skincare lines of all time is La Roche Posay. I have tried a few of their day creams, most notably their Toleriane Ultra and Hydraphase face creams. When I last spotted the brand, I saw a cream I had not yet tried: Toleriane Ultra Nuit. Since I generally like their products and I was looking for a new night time cream to try, I decided to pick it up.

Time for a montly recurring post: Shop My Stash. In this blog post I take you through my full face of makeup favorites that I reached for most during a given month. It’s a way for me to not only show you what I’m using, but also a way to challenge myself to use more diverse products, and to take you on that journey as I try makeup and adapt it to my seasonal and daily needs. Today, I’m taking your through my December 2017 makeup bag.

It had been a while since I was last intrigued by a Catrice limited edition collection. Most of them were a bit meh and it hasn’t been since last summer that I found some products I liked in their seasonal limited edition collections. But 2018 is off to a good start with their new Dazzle Bomb limited edition. Sadly, this was released just days before New Year’s Eve. I think this sparkly collection would have better suited a release before the holidays, not when they are almost over. Oh well, this a little bit of glitter can never do no wrong, so let’s have a closer look.

Do I now have a beauty room? I am not too sure, but I knew the minute I bought this house that I wanted the spare bedroom to be an office/ blogging space. I mainly just wanted at least one room in the house where I could make a mess if I wanted to and leave it be. Whether it is because I am grading papers at home, or have tons of products lying about for taking pictures: I wanted one room where that wouldn’t be a problem and to separate different parts of my life. This is what I came up with.

The drugstore has finally jumped on the liquid lipstick band wagon. And how! First Maybelline released their Superstay Lip Inks, which made it to my 2017 favorites list and now Rimmel is following suit with their new Stay Matte lip. Will this formula be as wonderful as the Maybelline one?

Apart from makeup bits, I have also loving fashion quite a bit. That is why I’ve selected 10 clothing items that were my favorites last year, or that represent a trend that I loved. Some of these items you will have seen in lookbooks, others in hauls, but these were some of the fashion pieces from my wardrobe that I loved in 2017.

2017 may be over, but I still wanted to talk you through some of my top favorite makeup products of the year that has gone past. I’ve selected products in all different categories except for brows and face powder. The reason? I didn’t have a favorite. In those categories I find I am not too picky and a true favorite hasn’t changed from other years. So apart from brows and powders, these are my favorite makeup products from 2017.
