Hey from the Caribbean!
It’s been such a relaxing trip, and I love that I can still blog and connect with y’all on the go!
I’ve spent much of this week reminiscing over 2015 and looking ahead to the rest of 2016, and since I never did a 2015 recap at the end of the year, I thought this would be the perfect time.
I think 2015 deserves a recap, don’t you? It was a big year. It was the first full year this blog ran, including the introductions to What to Wear Wednesday’s, Fabulous Friday’s, Monthly Beauty Faves, and don’t forget all the DIY’s…
So, below I’m sharing my favorite posts, and YOUR favorite posts (the most popular posts that got the most love)!
• My favorite What to Wear Wednesday post – 18 Creative Ways to Wear Leggings
I didn’t even think twice about choosing this one. It was one of my favorite WTWW posts to write, and leggings are pretty much my favorite.
• My favorite Fabulous Friday post – 23 Things I’ve Learned in 22 Years
I had the hardest time picking this one, since Fabulous Friday posts cover so many broad topics. I ultimately went with this post, because it was one out of a few more personal posts I did this year. It made me realize that I want to write more posts like it in 2016!
• My favorite Monthly Beauty Fave post – Beneco Nail Polish | December’s Beauty Fave
I chose Benecos out of the other Monthly Beauty Faves, because it took me ages to convince myself I needed to switch my nail polish to a non-toxic version, and I finally found a brand that not only matched, but exceeded my standards!
• My favorite DIY post – DIY Beauty Gift Guide for Christmas
I’m kinda cheating my choosing this DIY post, because it includes four recipes, not just one. These are some of my favorite DIY’s, though, and my beauty DIY gifts this Christmas were loved by all!
• Your favorite What to Wear Wednesday post – 17 Ways to Wear Boots in the Spring
I guess you could say we really don’t like to let go of our boots just because the weather turned warm.
• Your favorite Fabulous Friday post – Why I’m Throwing Away All My Makeup
I was slightly surprised but really happy to see this one was by far the favorite. This was such a big change in 2015 for me, and I knew I had to share it with all of you. I’ve loved sharing this journey to a more natural lifestyle, and it all started with this post.
• Your favorite Monthly Beauty Fave post – Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil | June’s Beauty Fave
My first Monthly Beauty Fave was the favorite. Who would’ve guessed! Life’s about balance, right? Even though NARS products are unfortunately pretty toxic, I still use these occasionally, and I’m on the lookout for a natural alternative.
• Your favorite DIY post – DIY Hair Heat Protectant
No surprise here. I can’t tell you how many friends I’ve got hooked on this stuff, and my hair is so much healthier with it. I’m so glad all you lovely ladies’ hair has benefited from it, too!
This was also a big post in 2015 – I kept mentioning essential oils, and you all really deserved an explanation. They’ve become such a big part of my life, it was impossible not to share them with y’all!
This was one of my favorite makeup posts of 2015 – I put a lot of work into it and had so much fun creating it, and loved the idea that it helped other girls with something that seems difficult and overwhelming, but really isn’t. It also made me realize that for future posts like this, I should do in video format instead of written!
What was YOUR favorite post(s) of 2015?
What do you think about video posts and more personal posts incorporated into the blog this year?
I’d love to hear from you in a comment about the 2015 recap!
