My Favourite 17 Features of 2017

It feels as if I was writing about my  16 favourite features from 2016 only yesterday, and now it is time to look back at 2017. Although, I have to admit, that  2017 was not the most productive year website wise, there were still a lot of posts I loved putting together.

Once again, these are the articles I loved writing the most,  I will also put together a round up of the features that got the most views which will be interesting to see.

  1.  Makeup Trend: Eye Gloss (here). Probably my favourite feature of 2017.

2.  Exclusive Interview with Ellis Faas, Make-Up Artist (here).I feel so privileged to be able to talk with talented and creative people from the industry.

3. My Birthday Wish List (here). I do have most of the items from the list now. Being obsessed with the lists, it helped me to see on what items I actually needed/wanted. Should probably post one for this year as well.

4. Another interview. This time with  Adina from A England Nail Polish Brand (here). She is such a cool lady and her cat is just the cutest.

5. Daniel Sandler Watercolour Customisable Colour Set For Cheeks Review and Swatches (here).I love Daniel’s blushers and it was a pleasure writing about this set, besides, it is simply gorgeous.

6. I always try to write monthly beauty favourites, and in 2017 loved the

Hand Cream Love: J.R. Watkins and Brooks & Waters

I am the biggest hand cream fan ever,  I have mentioned so many hand creams on the website already, and posted quite a few over at my Instagram, too.

So today I want to show you my two newest loves, both were gifts from my friends which is very sweet of them. One was brought to me from Canada, and the other one from the USA.

J.R. Watkins Shea Butter Hand Cream ( get  it from Amazon and Amazon UK)

I used this one mostly during the winter, as it is very nourishing and quite thick formula-wise (check out all the butters and oils in the ingredients list).   I honestly think this is one of the

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Hand Cream Review. Rave

Regular readers will know how obsessed I am with hand creams, I am always on the hunt for the nice new options, so after seeing a lot of raves about La Roche-Posay’s Cicaplast hand cream – I’ve decided to get a tube for myself.

La Roche-Posay Cicaplast Baume B5 Hand Cream Review Rave

This is a cream for damaged or overworked hands. And since my skin is very dry – that sounded like a prefect one for me.
And, I love it! It is such a great product. I only wish it had some kind of delicious scent to it, as for me a hand creams with a nice fragrance – is one of the ways to relax and enjoy a moment during a busy day. But being LRP – it is obvious that this is a scent-free product. And, I don’t mind actually…

As for the formula – the brand

Christmas Gift Guide for Him: Men Tell Us What They Really Want

I know that a lot of readers are wondering what to get their husbands/boyfriends (or even brothers/fathers/male friends) for Christmas.

This is why I have asked “men from my life” what they would like to get – to share with you some ideas. I just hope that now they won’t think that I am getting all those things for them… 😉

I have promised not to give away their names, so here are just the quotes and age group. Most of my male friends are 30-35 but I have asked several younger and several older men,  for the variety.
