Happy 7th Blogiversary!

I don’t know if I believe in fate but I DO believe that everything happens for a reason.  And, with that said, I’m excited, yet also shocked, that today is my blog’s 7th blogiversary.  How CRAZY is that?!  I mean…seven years of beauty reviews (and more)?  I just can’t.  What’s even more shocking is that as of Tuesday, I am FULL TIME BLOGGER.  Yes, that’s right…I’m going for it, guys.  It’s all happening.  I’m 30 now, and it’s time for me to take chances, dream big and live my life to the fullest.  So here we go…happy 7th blogiversary to ME.

Also, happy 7th blogiversary to Amber, who, ironically enough, started her blog on the EXACT SAME DAY.  How crazy is that?

Two Point Oh LA’s 2nd Annual Picnic at Griffith Park

Moving to LA was hard for many reasons but I always say how much I especially miss my blogger friends.  About a year ago, I joined a great LA-based blogger organization called Two Point Oh LA and on Saturday, we celebrated our first birthday with the second annual Two Point Oh LA picnic in Los Angeles’ Griffith Park!

The weather was absolutely perfect and Kelsi, the group’s founder, did an AMAZING job setting up the girliest and most stylish picnic imaginable with some fantastic sponsors such as PopChips, SoleSociety, LATHER and Pop Beauty with gift bag items in the “Gifting Tent” from some of my faves like Bare Escentuals, Redken, NYX Cosmetics and a gigantic chocolate chip cookie from Neiman Marcus(!).

My girl Kristen even had her own “crafternoon” section where she DIY’d tote bags courtesy of SoleSociety.  Love.

Just some of the amazing desserts (cake baked by Kelsi!)
