My 2015 Favorites

Happy New Year’s Eve!!! I cannot believe that it is already the end of 2015, this year just flew by! Hopefully, I can slow down next year and really take time to enjoy all of the little things of 2016! With the end of the year, comes my favorites from 2015!! If you’d like, you can check out my 2014 favorites here!

One Free Flying: Being able to fly free {space available} is really awesome! Although sometimes you really have to plan ahead, and definitely be flexible, it’s great not having to pay so much to go somewhere!

Two Champagne Pop: Even though I haven’t gotten my hands on this awesome highlighters, I’m still so excited for Jaclyn Hill and her collaboration with Becca Cosmetics! It’s something I hope to get my hands on; Jaclyn Hill makes it look gorgeous every time she wears it!

Three Snapchat: Although I don’t snap as much, it’s great to be able to catch up with people and their stories. Most of the time, I just snap pictures of Jingles and the blog. I’m trying to figure out how I can utilize Snapchat to help promote the blog!

Four The Happy Planner: I love this planner so much! I love the cute discs, the stickers to put in it, getting to decorate it {when I can}; it’s a great planner made by a great company! It’s siilar to the Erin Condren planner, but the “system” is different; it’s discbound, not spiral.

Five 2Cellos: I mentioned them in yesterday’s post, but they really are so good! It is incredible the musical talent that people can have! I highly suggest checking them out! You can find their YouTube channel here!

Six H&M: H&M quickly became my favorite an go-to store to get my clothes this year! They have a wide selection for a great price! I even got my new purse from their and I love it!

Seven Twitter Chats: Twitter chats are a great way to meet fellow bloggers and creators! It was so much fun to be a part of the many different chats this past year! I can’t wait to meet some more fellow bloggers through Twitter chats!

Eight Shower Speaker: Okay, we’ve only had this since Christmas but it had been something we wanted and knew we would love so it is an automatic favorite! Seriously, if you love listening to music in the shower, then you really need this shower speaker!

Nine HGTV: This year Matt and I found HGTV and now we are officially obsessed! I love watching most of the shows on HGTV, and this channel is usually the channel that is on, unless we’ve seen the episode that is playing so many times!

Ten YouTube: I love watching some of my favorite YouTubers, and finding videos of those who aren’t as big as Jaclyn Hill, Lustrelux, or Tati {GlamLifeGuru}. I really do enjoy watching YouTube videos, they give me inspiration for my own!

I honestly cannot believe that we are ringing in the new year already! It really feels like January 2015 was last week; this year really has flown by! I can’t wait to see what 2016 has in store for me and all of you! I’m excited to just spend the night at home, in my PJs and hopefully Matt will be home before midnight! What are your plans this New Year’s Eve?!


Whatever you choose to do tonight, be safe and DO NOT drink and drive! Happy New Year!

    What a great list! It seems like 2015 was a great year for you, and I'm sure that 2016 will be even better! I need to get more involved with twitter chats- and I obviously need to start shopping at H&M! Thanks for the recommendations!

    I also love HGTV, home decorating shows are SO addicting to me. I've never heard of Space Available…I need to check it out and learn more!

  9. Tiffany Khyla says

    Snapchat is one of my favorite apps. I use it a lot when I'm traveling to share things on my story, and then in everyday life, my friends and I snap weird and funny things to each other. Like you, I also love catching up with people by watching little snippets of their lives. I'm so jealous of your Happy Planner! I want one so much! You should totally start a YouTube channel! I started mine at the beginning of the year, and I'm hoping to get better about posting this year. It's so much fun!
