My top foolishly underrated things of 2012

make up primer

When I first heard of this I thought it was yet another beauty scam, but after trying it out myself, I realized the benefits of this product. Since I have oily skin, it does in fact keep my make-up in place even into the wee hours of the night.

This past year I traveled a lot to New York City or Minneapolis. What I clearly forgot during some of these trips was how cold the airport can be, and how much I would love to take a nap while I sit on this thing. Being prepared to sleep anywhere, keep warm and look cool while on your journey? perfect! (Hepburn had the right idea)

cosmopolis_newsElisecosmopolis-stillThis David Cronenberg film was definitely not what I was expecting. Not only was the film interesting with its characters and their actions, but it made the audience think about this futuristic world. I was impressed with how Cronenberg portrayed the novel by Don Delillo, as well as Robert Pattinson’s performance.

peking duckYes I am a vegetarian but this peking duck found in Flushings, NY was so tasty. It was quite the adventure to find it, since it is only a window you walk up to and pay $1 for a little bit of heaven. (So sorry little ducks but you are just so tasty…)
