In honor of my 31st birthday (today!) I thought it'd be fun to share the 31 best things I got last year. Some were gifts and some I bought for myself, but all are items I adore and use often! Enjoy and thank you for reading today and every day! I'll see you later this week with our regularly scheduled programming. (P.S. This is the salted pretzel cake from Milk Bar and it was incredible. Back to grain-free and gluten-free eating tomorrow...)

This purifying hand treatment that kills two birds (sanitizing and moisturizing) with one stone.

This pretty lipstick that brightens a smile.

A bronze brush that makes contouring a cinch. 

Bronzer that's soft and natural-looking.

Shampoo and intensive conditioner that brought life back to my sad, stressed out tresses.

Teeth whitening at home.

Easy-to-use brow gel.

Natural foam shave that works really well (and lasts for a long time).

A blender that makes my kitchen dreams come true.

A pillow that has improved my sleep and cured my neck discomfort.

A cookbook that opened my eyes to a new way of eating.

A water bottle that has two openings for easy cleaning.

Leggings that are comfy, flattering and stay in place.

Leggings that feel like I'm not wearing anything at all.

A classic workout tank with an insanely flattering cut. 

No-show socks that don't silp.

Statement earrings that look like Baublebar but cost a fraction of the price.

The daintiest ring to wear with (or instead of) my engagement ring.

A backpack to wear on days I'm running around the city and don't want a heavy tote to unevenly exhaust my shoulders.

A lightweight tote that's great for travel.

Insanely comfortable sneakers that look cute on.

Statement heels that don't hurt.

Wire-free bras that are pretty and comfortable.

Undies that strike the perfect balance of "sexy" and "get the job done."

Vegan leather leggings that look and feel great.

The perfect vest and fleece combo.

A cute sweater that looks great with jeans or leggings.

The best party dress.
