2015 Favourites

So 2015 has come and is almost gone! This means it is time to share with you some of my favourite things– what I tried, ate, listened to, wore, etc, etc.  I’m pretty sure that I’ll miss some things or go on about other things.

Let’s get started!

Online/Social World Favourites:

Favourite Social Platform: Instagram–Why? Because I enjoy sharing moments with friends and random strangers.

Online Show: Kimmy Schmidt: Unbreakable–Why? I have no idea why. I just really love how random it was.

YouTuber: Tess Christine–I have been watching Tess since she first started way back when, but I have grown to appreciate her videos much more because who doesn’t want all her clothes and adventures. I just feel like I can relate to her a bit more than most YouTubers.

Public Figure to Follow: Erin Ireland. I was introduced to Erin through an article I read in Chatelaine and instantly became a big fan. After meeting her this year (which is also part of my 2015 favourites), I grew to respect her even more. I love how she practices what she preaches but also doesn’t force it on you. I also love watching her snaps.

Favourite Snapchatter: Erin Ireland & Jillian Harris. I love them both because they share a lot of their adventures, what they eat and what they do. They’re both awesome. I obviously couldn’t pick just one.

Favourite Blogger/Vlogger: Zoella. Hands down my favourite vlogger. Her Christmas vlogs were on point.

Favourite 2015 Movies:

Jurassic World: It was nice to relive those childhood moments.

Avengers: Age of Ultron: I like superhero movies a lot. ❤

Minions: Who doesn’t like the minions?

Documentaries:

Cowspiracy

TedTalks 

Favourite Albums:

Florence & The Machine “How Big, How Blue, How Beautiful”

James Bay “Chaos and the Calm”

Selena Gomez “Revival”

The Weeknd “Beauty behind the madness”

Justin Bieber “Purpose”

Adele “25”

Favourite Songs:

Okay, so I like music way too much to pick just one. So here are some that I couldn’t stop jamming out to this year. Here are some covers and remixes of songs (I couldn’t find some of the originals to post in here)

Other songs:

Blank Space- Taylor Swift

The Feeling- Justin Bieber ft Halsey

Heartstrings- Leighton Meester

Take your Time- Sam Hunt

On My Mind- Ellie Goulding

Can’t Stop Dancing- Becky G

The Hills- The Weeknd

Like I’m Gonna Lose you- Meghan Trainor ft John Legend

And there were a whole lot more!

Favourite Concert: FLORENCE & THE MACHINE ❤

One of the best concerts I have ever been to. So lively, so exhilarating and moving. I don’t know how she did it but she knocked me out with her awesomeness and stage presence was through the roof.

Favourite Event: TedxSFU 2015

A whole day listening to amazing stories, to see how people change the world by just being themselves is quite refreshing. Not only did I meet some amazing people but I also got to re-imagine myself and think about what I want to do.

Favourite Memories:

Mexico 2015 with my sister

IMG_2013

One of the most random, refreshing, and extremely needed trips ever to one of the most beautiful places I had ever been. I can’t wait to go back! ❤

Meeting Erin Ireland

She’s just awesome!! ❤

Friendmas 2015

IMG_2814

I got to see some of my favourite people under one roof, who else wouldn’t enjoy this memory.

MarMar 2015 = MARlene & MARtha ❤

IMG_2579

I got to see one of my bestest take on a new adventure even if it meant her leaving me here.

Heatherween 2015 

Never had gone to a Halloween party before.

Favourite Place(s):

Los Cabos, Mexico — A gorgeous place with amazing people.

TransCanada Trail /Burnaby Mountain — nothing says Martha’s favourite place with favourite friends and getting sweaty going up cardiac hill.

Favourite Book(s):

Sharp Objects- Gillian Flynn: If you liked Gone Girl, you might also find this one quite utterly disturbing and interesting all at once. I couldn’t put this down while on the plane and in Mexico.

The Literary Review: A magazine filled with poems and short stories. I didn’t need to read loads of books this year because I spent a lot of time reading the Summer edition of it.

Invisible Chains: Canada’s Underground World of Human Trafficking: As someone who is extremely passionate about Human Trafficking issues, I decided to read about the issues and I learned a lot.

Favourite Beauty Products:

Baby Oil: My skin loves this stuff.

Biotherm AquaSource Deep Serum: For someone who suffers from dry skin, this was a life saver.

Rosy Lush Face Mask: I definitely need to go buy more of this!

Coconut Hair Masks/Shampoo & Conditioner: I like anything coconut really. Especially when it means it’s going to rescue my hair and scalp.

(see Beauty Favourites: Empties Review where I divulge more about each product that I really loved this year, you can also check out Lush Face Mask Review: Rosy Cheeks for my favourite face mask)

Vichy Ideal Soleil After Sun SOS Balm: I came back super sunburnt from Mexico, this lotion really helped my skin heal faster.

I didn’t have any favourite lipbalms, lipsticks or mascara’s this year. I just couldn’t find one that I really needed to have. I have tonnes of red lipsticks and they’re all from NYX Cosmetics so I guess that whole brand of lipsticks is my favourite.

Foundation: Lise Watier Tient Lift Anti-Rides SPF 20 ❤ I loved this foundation till the lost drop. It not only had nice coverage but also felt good on the skin. I think I sort of found it’s drugstore dupe which is CoverGirl TruBlend Liquid Foundation in M7.

Perfume: My Burberry. This to me smells like what I imagine being a young woman off to work should smell like. Does that even make sense? I just love it.

And this my list of what I really loved this year. I’m 100% sure I missed a lot of good stuff but 2015 had a lot of good stuff. Oh yeah, like I GRADUATED! One of the best things to have happened to me this year. ❤

 

Bye 2015! ❤
