fab 5 - goodbye 2014.

as mentioned in my first ever blog post, my whole reason for starting my blog was to have a sort online scrapbook of what i was up to at a particular time of my life.
even now, i often find myself scrolling through past blog posts and reminiscing.
so, while brainstorming end of the year post ideas, i decided that i would share some of my favorite moments/songs/movies etc. of 2014.
plus it's been actually forever since i've done a fab 5 post and that is a travesty.

so without further ado, i present to you "fab 5 - goodbye 2014" 
*cue crowd applause...

top 5 moments:
*there were countless other moments that could have made this list but these were the first 5 to pop into my brain.
FINALLY obtaining this laminated piece of paper - more on this in the future...maybe lol / 

top 5 purchases
i shopped wayyyy to much this year (something that i vow to stop in 2015, pray for me) but these five things are the ones i truly don't regret purchasing!
afterlight photo app / gelous top coat (seriously, my polish lasts for days!) / live lokai bracelet

malibu - august 2014

a little more about my livelokai bracelet...
as soon as i came across this bracelet on twitter, i was obsessed.
the design and message are quite simple:
the white bead contains water from mount everest - the highest point on earth.
"sometimes you're on top of the world, stay humble."
the black bead contains mud from the dead sea - the lowest point on earth.
"sometimes you've hit a low, stay hopeful."
there are an equal number of clear beads between the black and white ones.
"life is full of cycles, find your balance."
like i said, i'm obsessed and wear it nearly every day.

top 5 songs:
*except that i actually couldn't narrow it down to 5 and selected 12 instead...
9 - willow smith feat. sza / am i wrong - nico and vinz / blank space - taylor swift /
apparently - j. cole / ugly heart - grl (rip simone battle) / thinking out loud - ed sheeran <3<3
i don't f**k with you - big sean / valentine (cover) - pentatonix / papaoutai - stromae / 
nirvana - sam smith / loyal - chris brown / uptown funk - mark ronson feat. bruno mars
edit: oh nooooo, how could i forget about maps by maroon 5!

top 5 movies/tv shows:
gone girl / orange is the new black / annie / how to get away with murder / how to make it in america

top 5 beauty products:
original chapstick (sorry eos balm) / sweet almond oil (use it on my hair, skin, face) /

top 5 memes:
i have a strange sense of humor and am always looking up and saving memes on my phone.
here are some of the ones that made me laugh way too hard this year.

re: the first meme - i think it's safe to say that the general population is very much aware that guac comes at an extra charge.
i'm talking to you, chipotle.

top 5 vines:
i don't even have a vine account but have been known to spend way too much time watching these 6 second videos.
here are some of the ones that brought actual tears to my eyes.
