2012 Favorites

Hello beauties!! 2012 was an amazing year, and I wanted to share some of my favorite things from the year! This post is going up a little late, but I figure better late than never :) These favorites are not just beauty related. It's more of my yearly favorites in general ^_^
I can't NOT mention the show that has taken over my life, The Vampire Diaries. I am so obsessed with this show....team Damon ;)
Speaking of obsessions, I became absolutely OBSESSED with the Fifty Shades trilogy. It's one of those books you either love or hate, and boy do I LOVE it!!!! I also had to mention my favorite store - Fresh & Easy. They have an awesome rewards program, and I go 95% of my gluten free shopping there :)
I bought these beautiful sapphire Mickey stud earrings from Groupon. I love them because sapphire is my birthstone, and these studs really stand out! Of course we know how Disney obsessed I am!
Speaking of Disney, I got these beautiful Mickey bracelets from Disneyland for my birthday! They must be sized for kids because they fit my tiny wrists perfectly ^_^
I love how statement necklaces can transform a look instantly. These two were my absolute favorite necklaces. The gold/bronze flower necklace is from Forever 21, and it was less than $5! The necklace on the right is from Jewelmint. I just love the antique look of this piece! Stunning
This Chanel inspired Hello Kitty purse was my best buddy! I wore this beauty all year long. I love when Hello Kitty can merge with a chic style that I can wear on a regular basis!
I bought this top coat from Sally Beauty Supply. It dries pretty quickly and it really does make my manicure last much longer! This was also only a few bucks :)
Like many girls, I rave about this heat protectant from Treseme! I have been using this for years now and it's the only heat protectant I buy. It smells great and it's light weight!
I love this facial moisturizer by Clean & Clear because it doesn't irritate my face. It also lasts for a long time! I bought this months ago, and I use it twice a day and I still have a lot. The item on the far left is by Smashbox and it's the Brow Tech To Go in brunette. It's a crayon brow filler and it's amazing! It lasts a long time as well. The item on the bottom is by e.l.f. and it's the Mineralizing Mascara. It's only $3 and it's a total dupe for Maybelline's Define-A-Lash. The brush is the Powder Brush by e.l.f. It is so soft, and it makes blending making so easy and fast! I highly recommend this brush to everyone.
The e.l.f. Eyelid Primer is a MUST HAVE. It's only a dollar!!! A little goes a long way and your eyeshadow will last the WHOLE DAY! The Hot Mama blush/eyeshadow is the best. I use this all the time as a blush and it gives me a nice, healthy and natural looking glow! I also fell in love with the Tarte lip stain in the color Joy. It's a beautiful coral color that goes great with my skin tone. Apply it twice and it stains the lips for the whole day. Last but not least is my beautiful Naked palette by Urban Decay! This is pretty much the only palette I use on a regular basis. The quality is AMAZING and the neutral colors are perfect for my makeup styles!

So that's it for my 2012 Favorites post! If you haven't watch my latest video about these items, please feel free to watch it here:
