2015, i hardly knew you.
that picture of baby lou kicking her feet while i live-tweeted the golden globes red carpet in january seems like just yesterday and yet, also a lifetime ago as her wild-toddler-woman ways slowly drive me mad – in a good way, of course.
wordpress tells me that i wrote 93 posts for you this year (i’m hoping to double that in 2016!) and i discovered some longstanding favorites along the way. there’s this coral lip that looks good on everyone and this glowdaciously glowy non-foundation foundation – my very favorite combination for when i want to look perfectly effortless. this shadow primer is still my go-to and these matte lipsticks are bar none my favorite find of the year. never has anything garnered me more compliments in my life! i learned to backcomb my eyebrows (game changer!) using this product and i took a more natural approach to feminine care.
in happy life moments, i collaborated with olivia of mane message to launch a line of baby headbands and i skyped with a beauty legend. i shared my thoughts on motherhood with my friend caitlin, shared my kiss and tell moment with avon and i even had breakfast with lucy hale.
i was thrilled to be able to serve as a judge in the skincare division of aol fall beauty awards and was delighted to find my new favorite spot to shop for beauty in dc. to wrap things up, i discovered the skincare routine that has eliminated my breakout troubles (seriously they are gone!) – one that i can easily stick to, and that feels amazing.
it has been an incredible year and i couldn’t be more grateful for all of the opportunities that came my way. this little blog is such a blessing and its readers (YOU!) are my favorite people.
happy new year, beautiful friends!
