Watch Me Turn 30, by Holly C.
I'm a 29-year-old New Yorker who inherited this site from my pal, Holly P., to document the final year of my twenties. Right up until I turn the big 3-0 next January, I'll use this blog to indulge my inner-narcissist by voicing the good (I can date men anywhere from ages 21 to 50 without it being scandalous) the bad (I keep getting ma'amed) and the ugly (is it possible to get cellulite on your stomach?!). Here's to waving goodbye to my youth, accepting adulthood and remembering that every ending is really just a new beginning.

DAY 274  |  October 30, 2007
So I finally went back to Barneyís to use my gift certificate. This time, I bypassed the designer clothing section filled with $1,500 pairs of pants and headed straight to the cosmetics counter.

It was a good move, because one of the saleswomen was amazingly helpful. She tested all different skincare products and cosmetic shades on my skin. Sometimes I get stuck in a rut and donít know how to switch things up, so it was priceless to have a pro match me with the perfect foundation shade and concealer. I walked out of there with Giorgio Armani Hydra Glow Foundation that cost nearly $60, and it was worth every cent (even though I used my gift certificateóha!). Iím not a big spender, but skincare is something thatís worth splurging foróbecause a glowing complexion makes me feel more beautiful than having a cute pair of shoes or the perfect bag.
