Daily Dose of Coffee's Best of 2008

I have to say, I'm happy to see 2008 off, aren't you? It was a good year, but not the best, and I'm excited to see what 2009 has to offer.

However, we've discovered some great new products this year, and this is my annual roundup of all things cool in 2008 here at Daily Dose of Coffee, in no particular order.

Best New Hair Treatment
MoroccanOil Masque. It's not cheap, but worth every penny!

Best Palette
Urban Decay's Deluxe Palette - all their deluxe shadows all in one place! Perfect!

Best New Skin Care
L'Oreal's Skin Genesis serum, but really the entire line. I have been using the serum and moisturizer ever since I wrote about it.

Best Fragrance
Bond No. 9 Lexington Avenue. This was everything I wanted it to be. I'm rarely disappointed in Bond.

Best Lash Product
Make Up For Ever's Lash Fibers. It's a staple that I discovered this year and I won't be without it again.

Best Body Scrub
Soap and Glory's Flake Away Spa Body Polish. What do you expect from the founder of Bliss?

Best TV Show
HBO's True Blood. Thankfully they have ordered a second season so I can follow the goodness of the southern vampires. Which isn't really necessary since I read all the books in like, a week.

Best Travel Destination
I didn't do as much traveling this year as I did last year. We will be changing that in 2009, so the winner for this is still New York City, for my visit in February, 2008.

Best Music
This one is so hard! So much good music this year! The best album I purchased was Adele's 19. My favorite song of the year is probably Shake It by Metro Station.
