Happy Friday dolls!  Can you believe this is the last one of 2016?!?!  I am so happy to be home from all the holiday travels which thankfully was very low stress.  I still have a few days off till I’m back to the realities of work.  For now, I’m trying to use my time wisely with cramming in every appointment I can and trying to work ahead.  I am happy to be back in Florida, I am just not built for the cold anymore.  Total Floridian over here!  Let’s get into some favorites and instead of the week, I thought I would do a roundup of some of my favorites of the year!

My favorite nail polishes are definitely the Essie Gel Couture and the Sally Hansen Color Therapy with the Argan oil.  Make sure you get this glass nail file.



For beauty products, still LOVING my makeup eraser.  Easy to travel with and has cleared up my skin completely.  I used this face lotion for daytime and this one for nighttime.  I also add this oil and this oil for the t-zone area.  This is my go-to eye cream.  This is my favorite budget friendly mask (and great for travel).  For the best overall, definitely, grab this one.



As far as makeup, I recently scooped up the IT cosmetics cc cream for my everyday base and I can see why it’s a cult classic.  I also picked up this contouring powder and it’s the best I’ve tried yet, zero microglitter and the best natural contour.  I get asked about this lip color every time I wear it.  A little goes a long way.



As far as haircare, I alternate between this line and this one.  Make sure to always heat protect, this one is the best!  Still my favorite hair oil, it’s not greasy and doesn’t way your hair down.



Onto the fashion staples.  These faux leather leggings, I live in them.  These over the knee boots are a total splurge but the quality is 100% worth it.  I have literally walked miles and miles in them, they do not even look worn.  Get this moto jacket before it sells out again (under $25!).  This cable sweater is perfect for the holidays, incredibly soft and the price point is less than $28.  I just got this hat for the cold weather travels, it’s so warm and adorable.  My favorite workout pants.  These are still my favorite denim leggings, they do not lose their shape ever.  I wear these sneaks seriously everywhere.  The best Valentino rockstud dupes you’ll ever find.



Those are just a few of my favorites from the year!  If you need any suggestions on seriously any products feel free to ask me!  Either leave it in the comments or shoot me an email.  I swear I’ve tried just about every product out there and have strong opinions about them.  If you haven’t had a chance to check out my favorite posts from the year, you can view them here and here.  Tell me which things you love reading about!  Photography tutorials?  Blogging freebies?  Fashion, fitness, random life musings?  I love hearing your feedback!  I hope everyone has a safe and blessed holiday.  Let’s meet back here next week!  Until then, tell me your favorites and what you want to see more of in 2017.  Thank you to everyone who has supported me and continue to in the upcoming year!  xoxoxoxo

    You totally have tried so many products in 2016! I love my makeup eraser still and my face has totally cleared up. I actually just recently got a pack of konjac sponges and LOVE how my skin feels after using it. It was super cheap on Amazon too and free 2 day shipping ;)! I have heard so many great things about TULA and am super curious, maybe that will be my new year gift to my skin :)! Happy 2017!

    So many awesome favorites!!! I am loving my make up remover cloth. I like that Caviar brand for hair, I have gotten a few samples I have really enjoyed. I have heard great things about Sunday Riley but haven’t tried anything while pregnant because of ingredients but I am totally going to be trying all the things now that I don’t have to worry about that! Hope you have a Happy New Year!!!!

  10. I love that shot of you at the top of your post! Model status! And I am a huge fan of the It Cosmetics CC Cream, too! Happy New Year, gorgeous! xx, I’m Fixin’ To

  11. That first photo is hella gorgeous! You know I trust you for all things and love all your posts. Looking forward to starting anew in 2017, getting better with photography and trying not to buy something from one of your posts every week so I can save some money! Happy New Year!!

  12. Adore the red strappy wedges with the festive tights… perfect pair to spice up holiday outfits! I hear ya on the weather being from Florida…ugh it’s cold enough this weekend but I’m not sure I’d be able to deal with NYC and the wind tunnels!

  13. How cute are those tights?! Your trip to NYC is always amazing timing with Christmas, but I hear ya on not being able to take the cold anymore. True Floridian over here too that also grew up in the northeast. It’s amazing how quickly we adapt! Happy New Year gurlie <3

  14. Contour powder with microglitter makes zero sense! Thank you for sharing, so hard to find a good one anymore. Unfortunately the IT CC didn’t cut it for me. My skin has a little too many issues and the coverage just wasn’t there. I was so bummed!
