Can you believe we only have 3 days left until 2017 comes to a close? It’s so strange to think we will be saying (and writing) “2018” soon! As I look back on this past year, I began to think about which items I used the most in 2017. From cosmetics to bags to technology, there were quite a few things I was dependent on this past year that I will most likely be dependent on still in 2018.
Of my 9 most used items 2017, I would have to say my noise-cancelling headphones takes the top spot. I do not fly or travel anywhere without them – whether it be on a plane or in the car. It’s how I watch The Crown or Downton Abbey on repeat on the plane or listen to music on long car rides without any interruptions. Then earlier this year, I began using my leather backpack (this was my go-to bag in Iceland) as one of my carry-on bags since it packs pretty much everything I will need right at my seat on the plane.
There were a few beauty products amongst the 9 most used items of 2017. Earlier in the year, I began using this night balm every single night and I haven’t stopped since. When I wake up, my skin looks so clear, smooth, hydrated, and bright that I don’t want to put anything else on it (but I do because I have to put on SPF and moisturizer). A bottle lasts me a LONG time, since a little goes a long way. You’ve also probably noticed on almost every single outfit post since the spring, I have been using this lipstick in this lip color (the color is called Perla) on repeat. It has become my signature color, and even my mini bottle has lasted me a while. Speaking of lasting a while, I also switched to a new shampoo in July that I have been using nonstop ever since. It thoroughly cleans my scalp and makes my hair feel squeaky clean, getting rid of any excess product residue. Finally, a lot of you have been asking what I have been using on my hair to get my new curls. Since June, I have been using this interchangeable curling wand to get my desired bouncy curls and I haven’t used any other curling iron since.
Finally, there were three fashion accessories I used the most this past year. I’ve relied on my black Stuart Weitzman boots since I first bought them in Toronto in 2015. They’re looking a bit beat up now, but they are SO comfortable and they are typically my go-to shoe whenever it’s not summer, whether it’s to the grocery store or even on the plane. I’ve also been using this Senreve bag as my go-to bag for 2017 since it’s so chic and I am obsessed with the pink color. It also stores a lot of items (I don’t carry light) and can be converted to a backpack if need be. Last but not least, my go-to sunglasses have been this pair. I had been looking for them for MONTHS and then finally found them at The Grove earlier this year.
In all, those are my 9 most used items of 2017. I have a feeling I will be using all 9 items throughout 2018, as they each last a while and aren’t going out of style anytime. Perhaps my Bose headphones may run out of batteries, but batteries are easily replaceable. Which items did you use the most of in 2017?
