Best of 2016

I think we can pretty much all agree that 2016 was definitely a big bag of sh*t, right?  Well, for me, in particular, it was actually the hardest year of my life.  I lost my little sister in April of this year.  April 20th, to be exact.  The same day that Prince died, and essentially from the same cause.  Melissa was 29 and it was very sudden.  I plan on talking more about everything at some point, but right now it’s still a little too raw for me and I want to really think about a meaningful way to bring honor to her memory.

I almost didn’t do this post because, initially, I thought “what happened this year that I’m even proud of?”

Because to say this year has been tough for me (and my family) is a severe understatement…


Three Questions With Kourtney Kardashian


Aside from the fact that I’ve been meaning to try Manuka Doctor for awhile, Kourtney Kardashian is their global brand ambassador and I’m always fully honest when I admit that I LOVE to watch Keeping Up With the Kardashians, and I have no shame about it.  Kourtney teamed up with the brand after she posted on social media how much she loves Manuka honey, a main ingredient in Manuka Doctor’s products, and for good reason.  Manuka honey’s moisturizing properties help visibly revitalize as well as keep skin hydrated, assisting with moisture absorption and retention, as well as visibly increasing skin’s elasticity and overall texture.  Anywho, here’s what the reality star had to say…normally I ask THREE questions but Kourt only had time to answer questions while taking selfies in the Kardashian-favorite photo booth, so I had to keep it quick.
