So maybe March is a little late to hop on the wagon – BUT yaya has always had her own schedule!

Every year, though I don’t subscribe to Allure (I mean how many subscriptions can my mailbox take?) I always vote in the Best of the Year and if I miss that (followed by heartbreak) I always make sure to see what made the list.
