Bits of Style's Best of 2014

Is it really almost time to ring in 2015? I can hardly believe it. In the spirit of the last few days of 2014, I am rounding up the best of the best. It was a busy year filled with celebrity drama, chart topping music, haute couture, and so much more. Here is my 2014 edit. 

Selfie: Ellen DeGeneres' Oscars selfie 
This star-studded selfie took the world by storm. With over 3 million retweets, it is the most retweeted post on Twitter. Simply iconic. 

Celebrity: Beyonce
Queen B ruled the world in 2014. From her show-stopping VMAs performance to her chart-topping album gone Platinum, Beyonce was slaying it. Even her sense of style was on point. The fashion world loved her striped Topshop dress like XO. 

Artist: Taylor Swift
Haters gonna hate, but 2014 was the year of the Taylor Swift. Her album, 1989, is at the top of the charts and the #2 best selling album of 2014 with 3.4 million copies sold. She's the #1 artist on Billboard's Artist 100 for the 10th week in a row. At the AMAs, she was the recipient of the first ever Dick Clark Award of Excellence. I'm sure Taylor will have many more accomplishments in 2015. 

Fashion moment: Lupita Nyong'o at the Golden Globes
High-fashion, elegance, glamour. Lupita Nyong'o stunned in Ralph Lauren Collection at the Golden Globe Awards. I can't imagine anyone but her wearing it. The cape, the color, the flawless fit...perfection. 

Song: "Blank Space" by Taylor Swift
This song is catchy, fun, and one you want to sing along to. The music video is gorgeous and her outfits are amazing. I want every one. 

TV show: Orange is the New Black
This is by far my favorite show ever. It's real, raw, and a riot. It is so funny. I love the characters and how you learn more about them throughout the series. If you have Netflix, this is a must-see. So excited for season 3 to come out in the new year! 

YouTubers: The Hughes Sisters - Lindsey (beautybaby44), and Meghan (missmeghanmakeup)
Lindsey and Meghan remind me of me and my sister. They're so close and love fashion, makeup, and music. I love watching their main channel videos and especially their vlogs.

Book: The Fault in Our Stars by John Green
The Fault in Our Stars was one of my June favorites and it is my favorite book of 2014. In my opinion, the movie did not live up to how great this book is. (I think Ansel Elgort saved it). As I said in my favorites post, if you haven't read this one, or if you've only seen the movie, I highly recommend it. 

Makeup product: Benefit They're Real! Mascara
If I could only wear one makeup product, it would be this mascara. I've been using it every day since I got it in early 2014.  They're Real! adds the perfect amount of length, volume, and dark black color. My lashes look like mine but better. 

MAC Lipstick: Milan Mode
Although I just got this one for Christmas, Milan Mode is definitely my favorite lipstick of 2014. It adds the perfect kiss of color to the lips with a bit of sparkle. I know it will be one of my 2015 go-tos.
