Kirstie's 2014 Favourites

Happy New Year one and all! I hope you all had a lovely time what ever you did to ring the new year in!
It's 2015 and I am seriously looking forward to the next 12 months aren't you?
Looking back over the last year I definitely tried out my fair share of products! (alot of them at that!)
 Hair, skin, make-up.... the list is pretty much endless and with them there has been some obvious stand outs that have been used over and over again and in some cases even repurchased!
So instead of doing a December favourites I thought I would give you my 2014 favourites - with a few added non-beauty related things too!
 Vera Wang Princess Perfume
I bought this when I was on my way to Florida, I've wanted it for so long and decided to treat myself! I love it and now the scent reminds me of Disneyworld - amazing right?
Maxfactor Masterpiece Max Mascara
This year I have fallen totally back in love with this mascara! It is hands down my favourite mascara ever!
MAC Rebel Lipstick
Probably my most worn lipstick this year! I love this shade so much!
Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Concealer
The best concealer everrrrrr. This keeps my bags at bay, I have literally been through about 6 already!
thebalm Bahama Mama Bronzer
You may have seen my review on this a few weeks ago! This has become my everyday bronzer to contour with, it is a matte beauty!
Most of you probably know already I am obsessed with Wicked, and this year me and my mummy finally got to see it after years and years of waiting! IT was everything I dreamt of and more - totally incredible, I porbably listen to the soundtrack everyday!
Folli Follie Rose Gold Watch
This was sent to me back in the summer and I have literally worn it every single day since! I honestly think I would be lost without a watch now.
Taylor Swift - 1989
My girl bought out her new album and as per it is totally and utterly perfect! I cannot fault Taylor or 1989 AND I am going to see her again in June, I am SOOOO excited I could cry! 
Neal & Wolf Elevate Voluminsing Lotion & Guard Heat Protect Spray
This brand is definitely one of the best finds of the year! The two products I have from them have become firm favs and I cannot wait to try out more of the range this year!
Aveeno Skin Relief Lotion
I first bought this as I had seen a review by another blogger saying how well it had worked for them, and you know... if a blogger likes it - I want it! This is worked so so well on my dry skin, especially the bad patches I get on my shins, I wouldn't use anything else on it now!
