My Favourite Products From a Weird Year

**This post contains affiliate links** 2017 is nearing its end. Something about this time of year feels so relaxing somehow – perhaps it’s the holiday food that just makes me drowsy – but there’s something comforting about saying goodbye to the past year and turning over a new leaf.
