Shampoo: Bleach Silver Shampoo (This is new, like, three weeks before the end of the year new. But it shot up to one of my favs instantly.)
Other Hair Products: Oil! Loads and loads of oil has saved my hair from looking the like fried mess it would have been after all the dying. 
I use a mixture of oil that is found around the house (olive, castor, coconut, almond oil and a few drops of eucalyptus essential oil) Kayennat also has a blog post on this here.
I also really like the Organix Moroccan Argan Oil! 

Other Loves of the year
Yankee Candle in Salted Caramel

New tech! This year my wonderful family got me both a Samsung Note 10.3 and a Kindle Paperwhite, and I am so grateful. The tablet is so helpful for uni work as I can carry that around with everything on and not have to carry extra paper and pens. The Kindle is the reason that I have been staying up till 8am most days reading! Especially during the holidays, I was behind on my reading quota for the past few months and I am not able to catch up! Reading on my phone or the tablet just doesn't do it for me.

Non- Loves of the year
Getting Ulcerative Keratitis. I still have a scar in my left eye and my optician said that I might end up with an astigmatism. This wouldn't have been so bad had I not been a contact lens wearer, which hasn't stopped me wearing them once I felt confident enough again. But I am grateful enough that the ulcer was not nearer to my Iris for it could have blinded me. Would have had to get a cornea transplant otherwise!

Book of the year
The Iron Fey Series by Julie Kagawa
Its such a lovely read, well written and so captivating. If you liked twilight, you'll love this series!

Song of the year 
Ang Laga De from RamLeela
Dark Paradise by Lana Del Rey

Movie of the year (Bollywood)
Chennai Express, Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani and RamLeela
(Deepika had such a good year!)

Movie of the year (Hollywood)
Despicable Me 2! No other movie can beat that this year!

Hope you guys have a wonderful year and share you favourites with us! I love reading what other people like!
Much love
