My December Favorites!

Hi everyone! Today I’m sharing my December Favorites with you.

It feels so weird not to introduce this post as part of Blogmas but this is our next scheduled post date so I didn’t want to miss it!

I’ll be posting Wednesdays and Sundays again, although next month will be a little weird as I’ll be traveling for a bit. I’ll have to think about how I want to handle posts around that time and update you. That’ll be in my coffee post next week so keep an eye out for that!

For now, I’ll go into my December Favorites!

2018 december favorites

First is my newest PS4 game, Rise of the Tomb Raider. I had wanted this game for awhile but when it first came out it was an XBox exclusive, and I only owned a PlayStation 3. Now, I also have a 4 and it was released for that console so I can finally play it! I’ve seen so many playthroughs of it though that it feels like I have played it sometimes. It’s also pretty similar to the first Tomb Raider game from this reboot series, which I did play, so that’s also a reason for it I think. I just started the game and I already realized I missed some collectibles in the Syria portion of the game so I know I’ll have to go back for those eventually. (I did look it up and the camps become available after beating the main story line for this area.) After this one, I’m excited to move onto Shadow of the Tomb Raider, which I haven’t bought yet but do intend to do eventually!

Next is the Forto Coffee Shot. I normally wouldn’t drink this but my mom bought a bunch of these and made me try them. They’re actually pretty good! Since I normally do have a coffee in the morning I don’t drink them often (I try not to have too much caffeine each day) but if I don’t have a cup I might have one of these. I do have the ones with Hersey’s chocolate, which makes it even better!

A new favorite is the Lush FUN. It’s a sort of multifunctional bubble soap kind of thing that feels like playdough. It smells amazing and I am so excited to try this “aliens and monsters” one (the one I previously tried was a holiday version of it but it was sold out in the store when I was there so I grabbed this one). I hadn’t been to a Lush store in ages, so I hadn’t seen this was available! I do want to try to order some new bath bombs and other cool Lush stuff, since I don’t have a store close to me.

Then I have the Benefit Total Radiance Facial Spray. I have had this bottle for a long time so I’m surprised it hasn’t expired yet. I love to use it in the winter as it’s so refreshing. I don’t know if it is still available as it was already hard to find when I last bought this but if it is, I’d totally buy this again!

I’ve also been enjoying the TNGO HD Primer that I bought in Mexico on a previous trip. I had run out of nearly all my primers and found this one behind a bunch of foundations I had put away on a shelf because they were too light for me in the summer. I’ve been using it a lot lately and it’s amazing!

Finally, Christmas! I used this lovely card I received from the amazing Hunida (thank you lovely!!!) to represent the entire holiday and holiday season! It was such a great one this year, and while I don’t do posts showing what I got for the holidays as gifts anymore (it just feels weird to me) I did get a few things both for others and from others that I’ll likely feature on my blog at some point over the next few months. We’re getting better a gifting experiences rather than stuff so that’s why!

So that’s my favorites for this month! Let me know what your favorites are, I’d love to hear about it!

Thanks for reading!

    • I did get it! I found it for cheap at Best Buy during all their holidays sales so I had to get it. It’s not the newest one but I hadn’t played the second one yet so I had to pick it up. I keep accidentally killing poor Lara because I forget to jump at the right time or a bear gets me or something… Haha the coffee shots are cute and a life saver at times LOL. And of course I had to use your card, it’s so cute and I very much appreciated it!!!

      • Were we talking about Red Dead Redemption before? I can’t believe how spendy that game is. It never even went on sale either LOL… what the heck? It must be a really good one. & I killed Lara instantly every time I played too hahaha.

      • I think we were at some point! (Clearly I’m failing at my resolution to answer comments on a timely manner.) But yes it’s so much! Also yeah, I’m really bad at fighting bears and that seems to happen all the time LOL. Poor Lara!
