Hello everyone, and welcome to my round up of the best bits of 2016! This year has been, but going to lie, a pretty shitty year for everyone, but that doesn’t mean everything was bad. Films have astounded me this year, as have music, and TV (thanks @ Netflix). Anyways, here are my favourites from 2016!
Morphe Brushes Travel Kit – 4.5/5
These brushes have literally saved my life and also my eyeshadow. Because Emma got me the Morphe 35O, I was a bit worried my Makeup Revolution Brushes (although good) wouldn’t do it justice, so I’m eternally grateful to the mothership for getting me these.
Throne of Glass series – 5/5
Do I talk about these books a lot? Yes. Will I stop? No. Is that for good reason? Obviously. These books are literally my favourite thing ever, and I’m pretty sure Queen of Shadows is one of the only good things to come out of 2016. If you enjoy adventure, OTPs galore, and unbelievable plot twists, you will die when you read these.
dodie – 5/5 (or should I say 6/10 ;)))
Oh. My. Lord. I am in love with this woman. Her music is the only thing that has kept me going through this year. Her melodies, her lyrics, her motherfuckin voice: all to die for. She’s a gorgeous human being, and I love her with all my heart. Also #BuyIntertwinedOnITunes.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story 5/5
My, oh my, oh my, how I loved this film. It is hands down one of the best films I’ve seen this year (obviously or it wouldn’t be a favourite but oh well). The script, the cast, the score, and the storyline are all beyond flawless, and I loved every second. (However don’t buy a large Coke when you go to watch this: you will spend the last act of the film prettified that you’re going to actually piss yourself.)
Sense8 – 5/5
Fuck me, man. This shit is good. Honestly, Sense8 is, for sure, one of the best shows I have ever watched, ever. The characters: amazing. The actors: stunning (especially Max Riemelt, hello). The storyline: fuck me once again, breathtaking. The way the collaborative scenes are edited is the most gorgeous thing I have seen all year. If you haven’t seen it yet, I do not know what you’re doing with your life.
Thank you for reading, and for all the support you’ve given me this year! I’m still a pretty small blogger, but I hope that in 2017, I’ll gain even more support from lovely people such as yourselves. I hope you all have a great 2017!
