The Best of 2013: Books, Music etc

9 Jan 2014

I've been loving a lot more that beauty and skincare things throughout 2013 so I thought I'd compile it all down into this post! If you notice with my others, I have just going off each product but with some of the following there's more than one such as I've been loving more than one film this year so I'm going to try and catergorise them. That probably made no sense to you so let's just go with it!

Books. 
Of course 'Where Things Come Back' has to be in there after it becoming one of my all time favourite books (mentioned here). I also enjoyed reading Ketchup Clouds and The Five People You Meet In Heaven which I've mentioned in a post here; also Looking For Alaska surprised me with the story line and I have to include it!(full review here).

Films.
This year I discovered an obsession with James Bond and Batman: The Dark Night which we some of my go to films. The Perks of Being A Wallflower was released onto DVD at either the end of 2012 or the start of 2013 but I didn't see it until 2013 when my friends got it for me in January for my Birthday. It's one of those films I can watch whenever! Finally; Evolution. This is more of an all time favourite than anything else because I've loved this film for years but this film comes with memories when a certain scene, that isn't even that funny, comes on and me and my sister end up in fits of giggles. It such a good film that includes some hilarious moments and I definitely recommend you watching it!

Music
The long awaited Bastille Album came to my door step in March with a special signed copy. I'd been a fan of Bastille a year prior to the Album being released and I still love them with me planning to see them in February of this year. Lewis Watson has to be in here aswell as I can listen to him non stop all them time. The only one that properly stand out to ones that have been newly realeased this year as I haven't bought many new CDs over the passed year- since last Christmas and since HMV sadly shut down.

Fashion
My Dr Martens have to be including as I've worn them everyday for the past year and a bit- wearing them all the way through year 10 at school and still wearing them now in year 11 and they're still going strong! I couldn't not include them as they've been my best friend over this past year!

Nail Varnish
I never know whether to class nail varnish as beauty so I thought I would just include it in this post but two nail varnishes that I have loved has been the Barry M Gelly Shine Nail Varnish in Blueberry which I've worn non-stop since the collection came out it in the drugstore. The colour isn't one you'd see everyday in a nail varnish collection and for the price it is, it's amazing quality! I have to include this Maybelline Forever Stong Pro in Lilac Charm one which I got in one of those bargain buckets in Tesco and this has to be one of the nicest colours I own as it's such a nice summery pastel. I haven't worn this in a while, however, because I don't want it to run out if I can't find a replacement! But I did wear this in the first half the year non stop and I still love it!

Fragrance
It was about a year ago when I purchased this Ralph Lauren #2 perfume on the way back from France on a whim when I was on my way back with all the money I went with still with me and I 'm so glad I did. I've nearly finished my second bottle and when wearing it daily and get compliments from people at school. I'm not even going to try and describe the fragrance so if you're curious just go and give it a sniff in the shop! Especially when my Vera Wang ran out, this kept me going and I've loved all throughout this year!

Hair care
Finally, how could I not include my beloved Tangle Teezer. Before this year, doing my hair was such a chore trying to break through knot after knot but with this beauty, that has changed dramatically and now I can't stop brushing my hair! If you take one recommendation from these past favourite posts, it is the Tangle Teezer.

So that's it! All that's left to do is my yearly round up of some of my favourite memories of 2013 and then it will be time to stop thinking of the past and more about the future(oh, how cheesy!)
What have you been loving this past year?
Hope you're ok,
