Hey guys! Once again, it's that time of the year again where all the bloggers and youtubers are rifling through their products to pick out the best of the best to share their favourite picks of the year to share! I already posted a Non-Beauty Favourites for 2016, which you should check out if you haven't already, but now I'm back with a complete round up of all my favourites in lots of product categories. I have done this for the past several years, and I had to do it again!
