Favourites of 2013

I love these 'Favourites of the Year' videos, they were a big thing last year & I am clinging to them. I think it's a great way to go into the new year. This is mine
In the video I talk about all the beauty products that I adored last year. The rest of my favourites are in this post & it is going to be extensive.
