I love discovering new makeup artists on Instagram. I follow a bunch of accounts who post looks from super talented makeup artists all over the world -- and, one day, I very luckily discovered Shannon V. THIS. GIRL. KNOWS. HER. STUFF. Every look she creates is so beautiful, so unique, so arrestingly gorgeous -- I can't help but stop the infinite scrolling just to stare in wonder at what she's created. Scroll through her feed and you won't be able to help but gasp. I'm thrilled to bring you my interview with Shannon today. Read on to find out how she got her start in beauty, the lip mask she can't live without and so much more.

Roses are red, violets are blue ... this #ValentinesMaskChallenge is for you! Two of the lovely people I follow on Instagram, @mindyourbeauty and @melubbeauty, are hosting a 7-day mask challenge. I'm going to be posting every day, both here and on my Instagram, so definitely check back each day to see the theme and the mask I chose to support it!

First up in the challenge is Smitten, AKA New Mask Love. I've fallen in love with quite a few masks in recent weeks and months, but there's one that has definitely stood out from the rest -- and that's the Clarins SOS Hydra Refreshing Hydration Mask.

If you're ever looking for an oasis in the middle of hectic, crazy LA (okay, maybe not that hectic and crazy, but it IS still a big city), look no further than Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts. I've long been a fan of Kate Somerville products -- stemming all the way back to 2008 -- and, about eight months ago, I finally decided to pop into the spa for a facial.

Well, fast forward to today. I not only went for one facial, I've gone back every month! I even signed up for their Skin Gym Membership, which means I get monthly facials for $33 less than the non-member price -- Skin Gym is an AMAZING deal and totally worth it if you want regular facials! Here are all the reasons why I'm obsessed with Kate Somerville Skin Health Experts -- and why I'm pretty sure you will be, too.

Flashback Friday: Looking Back on 2017

Post a comment!

As is customary at the end of any year, I'm in the midst of some deep reflection. By all accounts, 2017 was an incredible year. I don't know about you, but the previous couple years were definitely filled with some pretty big struggles for me (hello, Pittsburgh crash of 2015 and broken ankle saga of 2016). But I had one main goal for 2017 -- call it a resolution if you will -- and that was to be HAPPY. (See proof above: this was me in Palm Springs over Labor Day. The elation was totally, completely, 100 percent real.)

We only have one life. And, the fact is, we never know how much time we're really going to have. This past year, I took it upon myself to make my life everything it could possibly be. Am I exactly where I want to be now that 2018 is approaching? No. But am I pretty darn close? A resounding yes. LA has been and continues to be the place that makes me feel like my true, best self.

My hope for all of you is that, as 2017 ends and 2018 begins, you feel like you're on the path toward being happy, healthy and both who and where you want to be.

Please indulge me as I take a (not so) quick walk down the memory lane of 2017. (Spoiler alert: there are a LOT of photos!) Here's to everything 2018 has to offer!
