2019 is here and I am so grateful for each of you who check in on our site daily. After a much-needed break to enjoy time with family and friends, I am ready to be back in the office and bring you all fresh content for the new year.
I always like to kick off the new year with some type of reflection on the previous year. Usually, it involves a little series sharing favorite memories or highlights from the year, but this time, I wanted to feature the top blog posts and items that you all particularly loved.
Here’s to a great start to the new year!
MY 5 MOST POPULAR BLOG POSTS
It’s no question I am very much a “blazer and jeans” kind of gal. This post breaks down my most worn blazers and how I style them with denim.
I mean, who doesn’t love Amazon? I am guilty of placing an order or two per week. And I finally shared my most used items (most of which are under $30). If you have any must-haves please let us know in that post.
Quite possibly the trendiest beauty tool of 2018 and not going anywhere this year. Do you know why? It actually works. Whether you struggle with inflammation, sinus headaches or want a defined cheekbone, a face roller is your best bet. I’m sharing the why and how in that blog post.
This is just the beginning of what we have planned to share in 2019. But this series shares info on our home build and the start of the design process.
Due to popular demand, we launched our Lessons Learned From the Self-Employed Series. It took a back seat the past few months but we have three posts outlining things we’ve tried as small business owners (both success and failures) and interviews other successful entrepreneurs.
FAVORITE ITEMS PURCHASED
Quite possibly the number one question I get asked about is my gold thumb ring. I’ve purchased from this brand several times and highly recommend the quality.
I love this coat so much I bought it in black too! Such a great winter staple.
This was my top seller from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and it’s no surprise you guys love it as much as I do. It also reminds me of the one from Anine Bing.
BEST OF BEAUTY
ROSE QUARTZ JADE ROLLER – Over 1500 of you purchased this from me! I hope you are using it as much as I do. Literally just used it on my forehead and under my eyes as I try to fight this sinus headache.
NUDE LIPLINERS – It’s no question you guys love a nude lipliner — I’m glad I have you guys to share my obsession with. But in terms of what you guys purchased most, it was a toss-up between the Charlotte Tilbury “Pillow Talk” and Chanel “Beige Innocent”. Both are great options if you want to overline your lips in a “non-obvious” way.
MOST REQUESTED TOPICS
HOW I CURL MY HAIR (An older post, but still relevant to how I curl my shorter hair)
Thank you for all of your support for the past 6 years. I truly love this opportunity to write and share topics that bring us happiness, challenge us to get outside our comfort zones and share moments that aren’t always “perfect”. This community means a lot to me and I am very lucky to call you all my friends.
