2012 end 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

Aren’t you glad that wasn’t the actual poster for 2012?! icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you! (If you don’t know what I mean, look here)

At the risk of sounding trite, “I can’t believe its already 31 December, 2012! Where has the year gone?!”

I know many of you are probably getting ready to party like its 1999… er… I mean like its 2013 icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you! So this isn’t going to take too long. I’ve had a pretty good year all things considered.

But as always, here at MWS, nothing would be what it is without all of you and your contributions to the MWS Community. So just for you, as we have done in the previous years (2010, 2011), here are the highlights of 2012 based on what you enjoyed most – the posts that got the most comments and the most interaction from everyone out there. I never know what you’d like to read or what will draw you out of your shell to leave a comment but you know what? Its rarely been about the product reviews! Now that’s a thought icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

Here we go – blasting back from the recent past of January 2012. These were YOUR Top 3 posts in each month. Did you miss any of the hot topics?

May 2012

shiseido perfect foundation brush5 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

  • Stand or sit? How do you do your makeup?
  • The perfection that is the Shiseido Perfect Foundation brush. I still use this daily for a smooth well covered base that lasts beautifully on my skin. I have also recently been trying out another brush which I’ll share in the coming weeks. Its just as good but I find the finish a little different. Will talk about it soon icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!
  • Online shopping! I love it but there are some things I absolutely detest and I know you do too – the discussions were varied!

June 2012

beauty bloggers box1 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

  • I recovered from a sudden outbreak of pimples and acne and traced it to what I ate. Happily, many of you agreed!
  • Oh did you know MWS got into the Beauty Box Subscription hype too? Here’s what we offered in our introductory box! icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!
  • I discovered a sunscreen so good I’ve gone through 2 bottles and have 1 on standby. I’m presently using a different one but I’m going back to this once I’m done. Its pricey but I love it so there!

July 2012

lipsticks 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

August 2012

facekini3 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

  • Eyes to Kill – Giorgio Armani’s best ever eyeshadows. Ever.
  • I found the one and only hand cream I’ll ever use. It even made it into my Best of… series to round up 2012!
  • Oh and did you ever get your Facekini? It was the hottest new invention on the beaches of China and you even see me frolicking in one… almost! icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

September 2012

rouge dior nude5 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

October 2012

lunasol cheek brush3 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

November 2012

matchy 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

  • Sales assistants! How they can make us love a brand or run so far from it no one can drag us back!
  • Are you in some sort of rut? You can climb out of it, with a little help. Just do it!
  • Do you mind if your friends buy the same accessories you do? Apparently few people mind unless its a stalkerish situation.

cold clothing2 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

Thank you to all of you for joining me in 2012 and for providing me with lots of enjoyment, satisfaction, joy, laughs and ideas. Its pretty much your blog as it is mine so thank you again for all your contributions. It helps me keep going when the going is tough icon wink 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

Again, you have all demonstrated that readers of MWS are all coherent, intelligent people who can discuss and disagree on issues in a cordial, matured manner without being childish, petty or rude. Kudos to everyone for being well… adults! icon biggrin 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

Wherever you will be tonight, as you ring in the new year, stay safe and have a marvellous time. I’m staying safely out of the traffic – human and vehicular but I know I’ll be watching the fireworks that are bound to light up the night sky the minute the clock chimes midnight icon smile 2012 Has Been Another Memorable Year : Thank you, this is for you!

I’ll be back in 2013 and I hope I’ll see all and more of you here too!

xoxo

Oh this was fun! I’m really surprised, since I mainly associate this space as a beauty blog, but looking back, this really isn’t the case, is it? I read all of these posts and can’t believe I didn’t realize how varied it was beforehand (crossing my fingers that it stays this way, I enjoy how much this is a safe space to discuss any and all matters!). Here’s to an awesome 2013 with even more lively discussion!

Glad you enjoyed it, Laura! It always surprises me too to look back at the posts with the most interactions and find that its not so much about the beauty reviews, but about the stuff we talk about aside from the products. Its fascinating! :D

I know!! I wonder if its still a fad in China. Or maybe not coz its still winter but come summer, maybe we’ll see more fashioanble facekinis appearing… or maybe even elsewhere in the world? *gasp* :D Happy New Year, Jenn!
