Back in early February, I took a trip to Los Angeles to celebrate my birthday. This was actually the third weekend in a row that involved me celebrating my birthday -- hey, you only turn 35 once, right? -- and concluded the #beautychickturns35 extravaganza. And what better way for me to celebrate than with a manicure and pedicure at a fabulous salon? Enter The Painted Nail at the W Hotel Hollywood.

My skincare routine changes a lot. I'm fairly obsessed with cleansers, masks, moisturizers and all the rest ... and I'm constantly trying new products to see what works best. Yes, I've found some favorites over the years, but that doesn't mean I can't keep introducing more products into my regimen, right? Well, I've found two new must haves in the form of Too Faced Hangover Replenishing Face Primer and Chanel Hydra Beauty Micro Serum. Read on for my reviews of both!

Can spring PLEASE make its (long overdue) appearance already? I know the first day of spring was technically just last week, but since it's been so darn cold, I'm just more ready than ever. ESPECIALLY since we were totally teased with a 65-degree day last week (and, as I write this, it's a whopping 18 degrees). However, I decided to tempt spring to reappear with my manicure this week -- and so I trotted out Essie The Girls Are Out.

Throwback Thursday: A Bob and Blazer Made Me Look Like a Grownup, Right?

Post a comment!

Throwback Thursday, #TBT, blazer, bob, looking older, looking younger, 1990s
When I was younger, all I wanted to do was look older. Now, I'm sure that's something most kids want. But in my case, I looked SO YOUNG. Blame it on my height, blame it on my baby face, blame it on a combination of both ... but I was constantly being mistaken for a 13 year old well into my 20s. And when I WAS 13? I just wanted to look like I was in college. Enter the blazer and bob you see here.

I try a lot of beauty products. A LOT. At any given time, my apartment pretty much just looks like the inside of Sephora or Ulta combined. And, while I have my tried and true favorites, I definitely expand my beauty horizons fairly frequently. Right now, these are the six products I simply can't get enough of.
