Happy New Year’s Eve ladies! It’s hard to believe we only have a few hours left of 2018. Can we please slow these years down a little?
In 2019, I will celebrate 10 years of blogging!!!! What? That is crazy. I had no idea when I published that first post that blogging would become my full-time job.
I certainly could not have planned this out or even imagined it before 2009. I have mentioned this many times before, but my Mom introduced me to blogging in 2009 and then in September of that year, she passed away.
I didn’t know what to do with this blog, but I felt like Mom had given it to me and I wanted to keep it going for her. So it’s dedicated to my Mom who was beautiful inside and out. I hope I have honored.
Before we begin 2019, let’s take a peek back at a 2018 Year in Review. I had so much fun looking back, and I forgot that I started the New Year out with microblading.
January 2018 | Microblading was my most popular post for January. I had the first appointment at the end of 2017 and January was my second appt. I have had one touch up appt. and I’ll have another one in 2019.
I thought I would also share my favorite outfit for each month and this sweater was one of my favorites. I wore it a lot through the winter months.
February 2018 | Health is always a popular subject on my blog, and The Core 4 was my most popular post for February.
My favorite outfit for February was this top from Nordstrom. Some of you are very glad that the cold shoulder trend is not as popular now.
March 2018 | In March, Two Casual Spring Outfits was my top post. It cracks me up that some of my top posts are of me taking pictures of myself in a mirror. I need to remember that for 2019!
This was my favorite outfit in March; I wore this blouse from LOFT quite a bit.
Also in March, Wayne and I went on a week-long cruise. We had so much fun, and I’m ready to go on another cruise soon!
April 2018 | In April this post, Spring Sandals from Rack Room Shoes was my most popular. I think we were ready for some spring shoes!
This was my favorite outfit from April. I wore this tie front top all spring and summer.
In May, we moved into our new home. We absolutely love where we live, and we love our 5 acres of land.
Of course, I have to mention that our sweet Claire was born in May. What a joy she has been to our family!!
Wayne and I also went to Utah in May with my sister and brother-in-law for a Young Living conference.
June 2018 | My most popular post in June was this One top, Two Ways. It was the beginning of 21 Days of Summer Fashion, and I think we were all ready for summer!
This was my favorite outfit in June. I wore this short outfit a lot during summer.
July 2018 | No surprise the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2018 Preview was my most popular post.
August 2018 | In August we start thinking about the coming fall months. Most everyone is tired of buying summer clothes, so I start showing some fall trends. This Balloon Sleeve Trend cardigan was my most popular post.
I had two favorite outfits in August. I loved this blouse from Macy’s.
I also loved this outfit from Social Threads and wore it a lot in early fall.
September 2018 | Hands down the 7 Ways to Wear a Denim Shirt was my most popular post. I’m hoping to do more of these posts in 2019.
I wore the denim shirt a lot, but this navy blouse was another outfit I wore quite a bit. I love mixing navy and green.
October 2018 | In October I shared the Amazon Prime Wardrobe Try-on Session, and it was my most popular post.
My favorite outfit for October was this dress from JCPenney. It was a great fall dress!
November 2018 | The Fashion Trend That Keeps Coming Back was my most popular post, and I did wear this outfit a lot.
I also shared my new dining room furniture in November and how I styled it for fall. We have already used this dining room so many times!!
It was hard to pick one outfit for November, so I picked two. I love this colorblock dress, and I wore it yesterday to church.
I also wore this blouse a lot during the last few months.
December 2018 | Finally, December’s most popular post was 2018 Favorite Beauty Products.
This was my favorite outfit for December. It was comfortable and warm but still stylish.
Well, ladies, that is a wrap!! 2018 is almost in the books, and I’m excited for 2019. I don’t think I’m going to do a survey this year because I feel like by looking back, I see what you like and what I want to do more of in 2019.
- One piece, several ways
- more hair posts
- more basic pieces
- and affordable fashion.
I do want to hear from YOU so let me know in the comments what I can add in 2019.
Beauty For The Heart~~Today Wayne and I are headed out to lunch to take a look at 2018 and then set some goals for 2019.
Last year, we wrote 10 things on a small piece of paper that we were going to pray over and ask God to answer. These were not physical wants these were deep desires that we believed God also desired to answer.
We tucked the piece of paper in Wayne’s wallet (that way it wouldn’t be lost, I change my billfold and I would lose it).
Today we are going to look at that list and praise God for each answered prayer. If it wasn’t answered, we will add it to our new list for 2019, and we will keep praying.
I call on you, my God, for you will answer me; turn your ear to me and hear my prayer. Psalm 17:6
Have a blessed day!
