ALL THINGS NEW: 2016 MAKEUP EDITION

I honestly LOVE ringing in the new year. It’s the perfect opportunity to look back and reflect on all the happenings of the past year, but forces forward thinking for the upcoming one. Taking inventory on all the concepts that worked versus what didn’t work helps prepare for a new […]

GETTING AWAY AND HOW IT HELPS
