It’s been a loooong time… I hope 2017 brings everyone the best skin 💆🏻, the best friendships 👯 & the best food 🍑.

What a tough year. I know time is a man-made construct, but it’s nice that we collectively as a society have agreed on the faux reset – it might still be shitty on January 1st, but it’s a ✨ brand new kind of shitty ✨ just for us.

A lot has happened since last April – a whirlwind of new people, experiences, and responsibilities that at times I felt underprepared and overwhelmed by. I don’t make resolutions, but if I were to put it on paper, it would be a reminder to stay focused on what’s truly important, that I am more than my work, and that a glass of water + a good night’s sleep makes all the difference. I’ve done so many new things this year (and man do I owe a recap). I went on my second solo (sorta) trip to hang out with Liz and Viva in Vancouver. I dyed my hair after 10 years of saying I wanted to! I achieved peak eyebrows 🙏 I met some amazing wonderful people that I am so lucky to call my friends. I made… VIB and then VIB rouge… I’m happy (mostly), healthy, and I listened to great music this year. Some nights I drank a little too much, cried a little too long, spent a little too much, but it’s all good – these are just growing pains.

Here’s to a new year and here’s to being a better me and here’s to making more dreams come true.

My beauty partner-in-crime, Catherine, and I recently decided to make some mistakes ordered some items from 3 Concept Eyes, which happens to be one of my top 3 favorite brands Of All Time 💯.
