omg - a VIDEOOOOO! Gahh, I was hitting so many snags while recording this! Crashing laptops, dying camera batteries, and in particular, my spectacularly crappy lighting setup.... I did not even notice the awful shadowing on my face and in the background till I started editing and by then, I was in no mood to record again ;_; Next time I shall do better! In any case, I figured I would pop this up anyway, flaws and all, because if I keep fiddling with it till I am satisfied, I will end up posting this as a 2013 favorites video :P
It feels both awkward and refreshing to put a video up after all this time. I feel a little self conscious honestly >_< Ah well, a new year is for new beginnings - here's to getting comfortable in my (YT) skin again!

6 of the 12 items were repeats from last year :} which I think is a pretty good balance between old favorites and new discoveries! My favorite find was definitely the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream; my face has taken to it like a duck to water. The Lioele Quick Point Eraser, while not a perfect product, has also turned out to be remarkably useful - I'll be reviewing it in-depth later cuz it surely deserves it's own post regardless.
Ahh...it's already Monday! So tired...must catch a few winks.
