A List of 2017 Favourites

Favourite books, clothes, beauty products and more of 2017

An almost exhaustive list of favourites from 2017:


+ Little Fires Everywhere, Celeste Ng
+ The Rules of Magic, Alice Hoffman
+ The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, Holly Ringland (this doesn’t come out until April 2018 but I was lucky enough to receive a reading copy from HarperCollins, and it’s worth the wait)
+ Tin Man, by Sarah Winman
+ The Dangers of Truffle Hunting, Sunni Overend

TV Series + Films

+ Moonlight: I didn’t enjoy this film as much as it’s stuck with me all year.
+ The Crown Season 2 – I find myself in Wikipedia rabbit warrens trying to work out fact from fiction, and get lost in the sumptuous sets and costuming.
+ Molly’s Game: in cinemas later this month (or maybe Feb?). I had the chance to go to an advance screening of this film and it’s a must see. Even if it’s just to admire Jessica Chastain’s wardrobe.


+ These jeans. I have tried so many pairs of jeans at just about every price point over the years, and these are far and away my favourite.
+ These tees. So comfortable, so flattering.
+ A-line black faux leather mini skirt. Mine is from Zara, but this is similar.

+ Gold spiral hoop earrings – they dress up the simplest of outfits. I wear mine with anything and everything, but they work especially well with simple make up and all black or white.


+ My faithful Nars tinted moisturiser
+ Mecca Illuminating Balm
+ The perfect rosy pink lipstick by Bobbi Brown

+ A protective facial serum
+ An affordable nude lip gloss – anyone else enjoying a lip gloss resurgence?

Here’s to a great 2017, and an better 2018. I’ll be back soon with my 2018 resolutions. x
