This is my annual round up post of the best of the best of the year. These are the material items that made my year so much better, those that I put to very good use and those that brought me so much joy. So as we start off this new year, I wanna to give props to these items that lit up my days. You can read my favourite items of 2018 here.
I don’t even remember how I got to know of Hasan Minhaj but as soon as I did, I was hooked. He is an Indian-American comedian who was on The Daily Show but now hosts his own show, The Patriot Act on Netflix which I never miss. He is hilarious and very, very easy on the eye. I love that his show is funny while being educational. I’ve learnt a lot about Indian culture this past year just by consuming his content.
I’m starting to feel like a broken record now when I speak about sunscreen and it’s importance in *all* our morning skincare routines. I was sent this Nivea sunscreen in PR and immediately fell in love – I am still using it on a daily basis and I see myself using it well into the future. The best thing about this sunscreen is the price, it’s so affordable!
I took up bullet journalling in March 2019 and continued throughout the year. I love it mainly because it allows me to express my creativity and I get to make a pretty notebook where I can jot my daily tasks. I am so deep in the #bujo world right now, it’s not even funny! I am carrying on bullet journalling in 2020 and for as long as I can.
You know you’re grown when you lust over kitchen appliances. I totally fell in love with my pressure cooker in 2019 – she really was that girl that made the pots.
The Jackie Aina palette
Jackie Aina’s star has been rising in the beauty world and she is destined for the stars. When she released her palette in August I knew I had to get my hands on it and break my not buying makeup stance. It’s the palette I reach for the most when I wear eye makeup and it never disappoints.
If there’s one thing to know about me is that I love learning! Taking French lessons in 2019 was one of the highlights of my year and I am quite amazed at the amount of knowledge I’ve been able to retain even though I stopped the lessons in June. The thing that I love most is how I was (and will be able to) understand my surroundings more when I am in Francophone regions! eek! I’m so excited.
I’m looking forward to 2020 and what it has to bring!
