The Best of 2019

Happy New Year's Eve and welcome to my last post of 2019, The Best of 2019. In the past, my yearly favorite posts has always been a super popular post. So this year, I decided to bring it back but with a name change. All year long I tried a ton of new products and although I enjoyed many of them, these selected products consist of my personal best of 2019. If you’re interested in little somethin’ somethin’ for yourself, here’s a good place to gain some inspiration.

I also wanted to take a minute to say Thank You! to all of you who have supported my blog in the past year. I couldn’t have done it without you guys and all of your love across all of my social media platforms. On that note, I also want to apologize for being a bit quiet these past two months on my blog. I lost my grandfather and to be honest it's been very difficult. He meant the world to us but in the process I learned that there is no right or wrong way to grieve, all that matters is that you are coping and coming to terms with your loss and eventually moving on with life. So I decided to take a break for my mental health, and I'm finally feeling better and ready to start the New Year on a positive note. 2020 I'm ready for you!

Ok, enough sad talk and let’s move on to the fun part, The Best of 2019. 

Thrive Causemetics 
Liquid Lash 
Extensions Mascara
Earlier this year, I was introduced to this award winning, best selling mascara by Thrive Causemetics and I absolutely love it! This mascara transforms my lashes with serious stay all day dramatic length and instantly creates the look of lash extensions without the glue! No need for lash extensions! When it comes to doing my makeup my eyelashes are the most important thing to me and this mascara has been a game changer. This mascara does not flake off and you definitely don't need to apply a lot for them to look great! I must admit the mascara has a high end price tag but it's worth it. Plus, they donate money to women in need. It's amazing! Definitely read into it if you're interested to learn more!

Fenty Beauty 
Match Stix 
First and foremost, I wear the shade Bamboo and the color matches my skin tone so perfectly. Lately I've been staying away from foundation and I mainly spot conceal with this Match Stix when needed and it makes my skin look absolutely flawless! I have no complaints, it's simply an amazing product and I highly recommend trying it.

Tea People 
Coconut Green Tea
If you told me earlier in the year that I would become a tea person, I would of said your crazy! But thanks to Tea People, I have been introduced to the best tea ever! Coconut Green Tea, a tropical blend of real shredded coconut, coconut oil and green tea. The first time I tried this tea was when I was trying The Malibu, Tea People's first craft tea-mocktail. It's a crisp, clean, and refreshing drink! It's so delicious and so simple to make. I'm definitely a fan of Tea people, so now I'm always checking out Tea People Labs to see if I see anything new I want to try.

Jo Malone 
Wood Sage & 
Sea Salt Cologne
Last year in my 2018 favorites I mentioned that I purchased and received a few more colognes by Jo Malone, and I was really excited to try them out in 2019, and I sure did! My personal favorite and the best of 2019 was definitely the Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne. This cologne smells amazing! It's the type of smell that would be good for both women and men! And I'm not lying, a stranger actually complimented me and asked me if it's unisex, I said ah yes?! and he strongly agreed because he said it smelled amazing on me but he could see himself wearing it too. That being said, this perfume is wonderful and if I could I would wear it everyday!

Pillow Talk 
Myro's is a plant-powered deodorant with a refillable, yes refillable case! Best part this deodorant is Paraben Free, Aluminum Free,  Cruelty Free, and Vegan! I've been using natural deodorant for a while now, so this one worked out perfectly for me. I personally like the scent Pillow Talk, it smells like a sweet-floral arrangement and it scent notes are violet leaf, ylang ylang and wild amyris. I must admit the design of the deodorant was the first thing that caught my attention, it's so modern and chic. I love that you only have to replace the product with a refill, rather than buying a full, plastic deodorant tube again. It's a great concept, so definitely try it out and let's strive to be more green in 2020!

Lady Falcon Coffee Club 
Coffee Beans
What can I say? You know I had to include coffee! I've been a fan of Lady Falcon Coffee Club for a few years now. Whenever I'm in the city and I'm near them, I make sure to grab a cup of coffee but this year I finally began buying their coffee beans and I am obsessed! I seriously need to subscribe to their monthly subscription because I am currently obsessed with their Mexico Oaxaca La Pluma Yaitepec Coffee Beans. My daily coffee cup is absolutely delicious, with notes of plum, chocolate-covered caramel, and white grape. Yum!

Apple Watch 
Mesh Band 
I've never personally tried a different band on my watch besides the standard silicon one but earlier this year Ricky purchased me the heyday mesh band from Target and upon wearing it, I immediately loved it. I now own it in two different colors and I have not had a single problem with any of them. I've been wearing them for a little over 6 months and they hold up great. 
Nudie Jeans Co. 
Hightop Tilde
Earlier this year, I started shopping less frequently and focused on purchasing  higher quality items. One of those being my favorite pair of black jeans by Nudie Jeans Co. I am in love with their Hightop Tilde, these jeans are skinny all the way down to the ankle. They have a tight fit with a high waist,  just how I like them! I loved them so much that I decided to have one pair for everyday use and another pair ready for a spontaneous night out.

My best of 2019 has come to an end! I hope you all enjoyed this post, let me know in the comments below what are some of your best of 2019. Also, if you liked something I posted on here, Instagram, or any of my social media platforms, it would mean so much to me, if you could give it a quick like, or leave a comment. Thank you so much and Happy New Year!


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about your grandpa. Loss is such a difficult thing to deal with. Wood Sage & Sea Salt is one of mine and Rudy's favorite JM fragrance too. We both like that is is unisex so Rudy gets a lot of use out of it.

    1. Thank you so much Juliana!
      Really, you both do that's great! Ricky likes when I wear it but he's so picky with colognes he only uses his favorite Oud by Acqua di Parma.
