A Big Milestone

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Olay. The opinions and text are all mine.


Later this year I’ll be turning 30… THIRTY!!!! I feel like this is such a milestone for me and to be honest, it feels weird to think I won’t be in my twenties anymore! I know numbers and age don’t really matter, but it seems like a big deal to me! I’m excited to be partnering with Olay to celebrate women everywhere through all milestones and assist in their promotion of celebrating women who are turning 30 this year! I’m flattered they thought to include me because I love Olay and have been using their product for years. They understand women’s skincare needs are constantly changing and as a result they provide products with superior performance that actually work. I know I can always count on Olay to give me healthy, bright skin!
