Happy birthday, Kim Kardashian West!

In honor of her momentous milestone Wednesday, the reality star/entrepreneur shared 35 things she’s learned before turning 35 on her website,

The list spans everything from her personal life, style choices and, of course, penchant for breaking the Internet. Here are the highlights:


The first item in Kardashian West’s post is “Family first. Always,” followe by “Health is an invaluable gift; take care of yourself” at No. 4. Those pieces of advice are especially telling after she rushed to Las Vegas last week to support her sister Khloé Kardashian‘s estranged husband Lamar Odom after he was found unconscious in a brothel. Though the former NBA star has made a miraculous recovery, he still has a long way to go – and the Kardashians have his back.

She also gives a shout-out to husband Kanye West (“Keep the spark alive” at No. 7) and shares some mommy wisdom at No. 18: “Sometimes, you just have to let North wear her Minnie Mouse outfit to bed.”


Kardashian West gave her hair, beauty and clothing tips to live by:
“16. Always take off your makeup before bed.
17. All-white always works, no matter what time of year it is.
20. A perfectly centered part takes time, but it’s worth it.
25. When in doubt, wear black.
32. You can’t go wrong with a nude nail.”


Kardashian West literally wrote the book on selfies. In case you want to try to emulate all pouty perfection seen in Selfish, she recommends that everyone “know your angles” at No. 29. And at No. 9 on her list, she writes, “Takes photos of everything; those are your memories.” As for the best Instagram photo setting? “Airplane bathrooms have great lighting for selfies,” she advises at No. 26.
