These Are a Few of my Favorite Things | New Years 2018

Last year for my first New Years post I did a round up of my favorite makeup products that I bought throughout 2017, but this year I’m doing something different. I still enjoy doing my makeup now and then and treating myself to something fun every now and again. But I’ve fallen out of love with makeup. Instead, I’m going to talk about all my other favorite things from 2018 that filled me with more passion and inspiration!

I’m a Libra so that means I’m very indecisive about things which is too true. I have a lot of trouble making even simple decisions sometimes because I like a lot of things and I don’t like making people feel left out. The rest of this post is basically several lists of things that I have found and loved this year. There are definitely things that are missing off of this list and I’m sure I will think of once I hit publish or when this has already been up for a week. But for now, after a few days of reflection, I’ve gathered up so of most favorites for each category – and some are very long because I already told you I’m bad at decisions. But these are all things and people I have genuinely loved discovering or people I have continued to love throughout 2018.

So, these are a few of my favorite things:
