I have a confession to make. I don't typically use hairspray. There, I said it. I just really hate the crunchiness it creates and the fact that usually I don't even feel like it holds my style in place. But you know what? Drybar Money Maker Flexible Hold Hairspray has changed all that.

So, I don't know about you, but when I'm stressed out? My skin goes C R A Z Y. We're talking breakouts everywhere, undue redness, all sorts of general messiness I just CANNOT get behind. So when I discovered the Peter Thomas Roth Clinical Skin Care Max Complexion Correction Pads, I was immediately on board to put them through some rigorous testing.

Another year is coming to a close. And, as I referenced in my Throwback Thursday post last week, many people are pretty happy to say goodbye to 2016. I've absolutely loved this year, though -- and my manicures are just one reason why. This year, I incorporated old standbys and new favorites into my nail polish rotation. I discovered (and fell in love with) some new brands and also revisited some of the colors I've loved for years. You may notice that some of the months are a bit more sparse or even missing in my roundup this year -- I must admit that I had some moments of bare nails! Looking back at my favorite manicures has become a pastime here on The Beauty of Life (for proof, check out My 2013 in Nails, My 2014 in Nails, and, yes, My 2015 in Nails). Revisit my favorites of 2016 with me this week!

Whenever the end of the year rolls around, I definitely start feeling nostalgic about everything that happened in the previous 12 months. And, more than ever, I definitely have a lot to reflect on and be grateful for as this year comes to a close. A lot of people have been unhappy about 2016 -- and, yes, there have been some events in the world and a host of celebrity deaths which have caused significant sadness and distress for many, including myself. But, for me, even with some pretty major personal setbacks, this has still been the best year of my life.

And so I bring you my #2016bestnine. This is a collection of photos curated from my Instagram. And, rather than use the ones the #2016bestnine website put together for me (which uses the nine photos with the most likes), I decided to put the collage together myself and include the photos and moments that meant the most to me over the past 12 months. Here's why I chose these nine photos to represent 2016.
