2012 Favorites

Sam tagged me to share some of my favorite things from 2012, so I thought I'd play catch up :)

Favorite Makeup | I'm still a huge believer in Bare Minerals just because of how often I fall asleep in my makeup.  It's nice to not be punished for being lazy and/or tired.

Favorite Book | I didn't read as much in 2012 as I usually do so I'm going to have to say my reread of the Harry Potter series was it - I'm starting Hunger Games once again because Jen's from my hometown so hopefully, I don't get distracted and actually finish it this time.

Favorite Song/Album | Hello (the album) by Karmin and Drive from Carly Rae Jepsen.  I got to see Karmin live and was blown away by how talented they were.

Favorite Movie | The Dark Knight Rises and The Avengers. I'm a huge sucker for the superhero movies and thought ScarJo and Anne Hathaway were awesome.

One Thing You're Grateful For | The health of my family! We've had a lot of scares over the past couple years so it was such a blessing to end 2012 with everyone in good spirits and physically well.

Greatest Challenge | Letting go of friendships that had been lost for awhile.  I know it's part of growing up but it was hard to stop putting effort in to relationships that had existed for almost half my life.  At the same time, I got fed up with being in such one sided friendships and feeling like someone didn't care.

Looking forward to in 2013 | I took a break from college in 2011, when my mom got sick with every intention of returning after she was healthy again.  Instead, I started working and questioning what it was that I really wanted to do with my life.  I'm hoping in 2013 to go back to college so that I can finish my undergraduate studies.  Also, really looking forward to my two week trip to Europe in June!

I'm tagging Maya from Perfectly Imperfekt and Angela from Selfless Ambition if you ladies would like to share :)


  1. As a mother of two kids in college, I really hope you go back to college, as I know that your mother would not want her illness to be the reason you got off track. What you did for her is amazing and you deserve only the best in life!

  2. I should go back to Bare Minerals... I just am always about trying something new but the light feeling and the coverage Bare Minerals provides is amazing!
