The last post of the year and it had to end on a happy note, so here I am with the 2017 Favorites. The list is long, hence I’ll let the pictures do most of the talking! 🙂
I actually surpassed my Goodreads 2017 Challenge and read 45 books this year and surprisingly most of them were consumed on my Kindle. While the majority of them were fabulous, my top 6 of the years are below.
- Harry Potter and The Prisoner of Azkaban Illustrated Version
- Ready Player One
- Six of Crows
- Big Little Lies
- Everything, Everything
Without a doubt, my MacBook Pro, Pixel and the two fantastic earphones were the highlights of the year. I bought my MBP back in July and it has been my best investment piece so far. Pixel has become my second love (after Rishi* of course) in the past half year. As every year, I lost multiple earphones, but I currently own the Sony MDR-XB50 headphones and Philips SHQ1200 ActionFit Sports In-Ear Headphones, which acts as a perfect pair of headphones when on the road.
Fashion, Accessories, and Makeup
2017 has been all about the work dresses and shirts! These are my fashion, accessories and makeup favorites.
I cannot believe I took 2 trips this year! One with friends and one with the parental units and I couldn’t be happier. The cold Ooty and the sun-kissed Goa beaches were just the highlights of the year.
Overall, it has been such a great year for LBTC. Not only did I find the direction I wanted to take the blog to, but also did some amazing posts that I am truly proud of. Be it the Shopping challenge, Design lessons from stand up comedians or the month-long series on mental health. But my absolute favorite design post has to be the “Design of a Bottle Warmer” we did a couple of weeks ago for it’s out of the box innovation and quirkiness. And my favorite Thursday Post has to be “1 Leather Jacket 3 Ways“.
TV shows, Movie, and Songs
I actually completed nearly dozen shows this year, some old and some new. While I enjoyed most of them, the top three has to be – Riverdale, Stranger Things and This Is Us. All different genres and all brilliant for different reasons. I did see a fair share of movies this year but my favorite has to be Ayushmann’s “Bareilly Ki Barfi”. Such a lighthearted, laugh-out-loud movie with a plethora of great actors and amazing tracks as well. I might be very late to the game but the two tracks that rocked my year were “Something Just Like This” by The Chainsmokers & Coldplay and Coke Studio’s “Tera Woh Pyar”. These two songs are just <3.
Well you know some favorites do not fall into any category. Two things that were absolutely amazing were moving to Hyderabad and joining my dance class (I wish I had a good photo of me in dance class though!). Another random favorite of the year was discovering new items and the best find was “The Big Book Box”. Read all about the subscription box and its contents here.
Well, that concludes our favorites list, our last post and the year in general. What were your favorites this year? Got any good show, movie or book to recommend? Let us know in the comments below! Comment, share and don’t forget to spread the love!
