My 2013 Favorites | Best of 2013

2013 is over and 2014 is here! In 2013 I discovered many new products that I loved and will still be enjoying in 2014! I think that this past year was definitely the first year that I actually tried different products and explored a bit more! P.S. If you would like to watch the video version of this post click HERE!

Here are my 2013 Favorites:

Skincare
1. Fresh Soy Face Cleanser
I have been loving this face cleanser! Unlike other cleansers it doesn't make my face feel too moisturized nor too dry after using this face wash! I love how it makes my skin feel like it is at an equilibrium! It even smells like soy!

Haircare
2. Paul Mitchell Clarifying Shampoo
I love the smell of this shampoo. It doesn't smell like laundry but it definitely does remind me of clean, and fresh! This shampoo is great at taking out extra product build up in your hair, or in my case the excessive Chlorine that gets soaked up into my hair!

3. Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment
I absolutely love this hair treatment and have never been impressed with any others but this one!

Fragrance
4. Pink Fresh and Clean Body-Mist
This body mist reminds me of nothing but California! Bring me back!

Body Care
5. Vaseline Total Moisture Cocoa Radiant Body Lotion
I do not even know where to start with how much I love this body lotion! This lotion keeps my skin moisturized without the greasy feeling that some lotions have! 

6. Persian Cold Wax
I will refuse to go back to shaving! This wax leaves my skin nice and smooth for weeks on end! That's one less thing that I have to worry about!

Blush & Bronzer
7. Benefit Cheek Stain
I love the "stay power" on this cheek stain! It stays put all day!

8. Powda Wowza Trio - Bella Bamba, Coralista, Hula Bronzer
The one major thing I want to comment on for this trio is the smell! It smells so nice and wonderful! Oh, and the colors are so long lasting and beautiful as well!

Concealer
9. Maybelline Dream Lumi-Touch
Since the discontinuation of the Sephora Highlighting Concealer, I have discovered this one and have been loving how highlighting it is!

Eyeshadow
10. MAC Bare Study Paint Pot
I love this when I am running late and need some light to my eyes!

Eyeliner
11. Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Eye Pencil (in black)
I am so pleased with this eyeliner since I don't have to worry about unwanted smudging which I have always experienced with other eyeliners!

12. Stila Stay All Day Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner
I love the thin tip on this eyeliner! I feel like I can do a perfect wing every time!

Mascara
13. Maybelline The Colossal Volume Express Waterproof
This mascara along with any of the other Maybelline Waterproof mascaras do an amazing job at keeping my curl all day! What I love about this mascara the most is the big brush!

Lips
14. Vaseline Lip Therapy (in Cocoa Butter)
This lip balm makes my lips moisturized unlike other lip balms that just straight out dry my lips! I appreciate the moisture that stays!

Nails
15. OPI GelColor (Passion)
This color is a beautiful nude color! I think it would be beautiful on any skin tone!

16. China Glaze (Pink Voltage)
This is my go to toe color! In fact, I have it on my toes right now as we speak! 

Accessory
17. Infinity Necklace
I love this necklace! Point blank, it's my favorite accessory!

Food
18. Chicken Wings (Hot & Honey Garlic!)
Don't even get me started! I love chicken wings w/ blue cheese ranch!

19. Sushi (i love salmon sashimi!)
This year was the year I definitely started loving salmon sashimi! It was always a great after workout snack!

20. Perogies (especially cheddar w/ lots of bacon and sour cream)
oh my... I need some perogies right now!

21. Cream of Mushroom Soup
I love Cream of ... ANYTHING! But, my favorite has always been mushroom! 

22. Kraft Dinner (w/ real cheese!)
I love making KD with real cheese. It is so creamy and cheesy!

Books
23. The Summer I Turned Pretty Series by Jenny Han
This series is so great! I loved how the story took place on the beach! My favorite! A classic story about a girl who falls for a boy!

24. Elixir Series by Hilary Duff
I never knew that Hilary Duff was so talented! This story was definitely a mix of romance, adventure, and mystery to say the least! Falling in love with a mystery man, and learning a past about yourself that you never knew!

25. Lauren Conrad Style
Tips & Tricks Galore! This book is my GO-TO reference! 

TV
26. Pretty Little Liars
Do not even get me started. This is the only time I will use my TV...to watch PLL! How can you not love this show!?

Movies
27. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
I loved the books, and loved how they played out the story in the movie. It was definitely action packed but not too rushed at the same time. Side note: Does anyone else have a women crush on Jennifer Lawrence!? She is absolutely stunning!

Music
28. Landon Austin
Who met Landon Austin in real life!? ME! Landon is so down to earth and I have never liked someones voice so much but Landon's! I never get tired of any of his songs! Check him out by clicking here. If you want to see when I met Landon Austin then click HERE!
