life in blush 2014 favourites hair and body

Hello blushers! I can’t believe we’re about to ring in a new year.

2014 was an incredible ride, despite the challenges it threw at me, because of all of you and the love and support you showed me. I couldn’t be more thankful.

I appreciate every comment, email, tip and conversation you participated in as it helps me understand what you guys want to read about, what you like and just get to know you guys better!

As we close out 2014 I took a look back into my archives, and what’s currently sitting on the shelves in my bathroom, to choose the products I loved the most this year.

Today I’m highlighting my favourite Hair & Body products, but check back tomorrow for my favourite Skincare products and on Friday for what topped my favourite Beauty list.

  • …Having just finished my 2014 faves post (which took me a couple of days to write down, LOL) and clicking on my own link where I give you, ma bella, credit for introducing me to LL; and what do I spy with my little, tired eye?! Your own 2014 faves, AND the best part, we have 2 product matches and 1 more brand match! Woohoo! It just occurred to me that this comment would sound quite copycat-level of lame if we weren’t on the same path anyway 😀

    But seriously, LL Neem Enamelizer + Gum Drops are the bee’s knees. Took me a little while to figure out how to handle both products (the cinnamon oil caused recurring allergic reactions), and now I’m an ardent fan.

    And now I need to find out what Bush Country’s for!

    • Ahh I need to go check it out now! LL toothpaste and healthy gums/gums really ARE the bees knees. I’m so happy you’ve been able to try them, I just knew you would love it as much as I did.

      People either laugh or blush profusely when I tell them the Bush Country is for your lady garden 😉 Seriously, its good stuff! Try it if you get the chance.

      Hope you had an awesome holiday break Nath, love you! xo

    I love reading this! I am a big fan of Living Libations too.

    • Thanks Cindy!! There’s literally not one LL product I’ve tried that hasn’t blown my mind. Happy New Year! xoxo

  • Happy New Year, Sonja! Is it wrong that I want to try all of these? I’m especially eyeing the Treat Collection, Living Libations, and Prtty Peaushun.

    • Happy New Year Megan!! Not wrong at all, I hope you do get to try some of these brands next year! You’re going to love ’em 🙂 xoxo
