Happy Friday and welcome to another blog post! Took a little break after Blogmas but I am back just in time before the new year! 2017 has been a crazy year for me (which I will talk about in a different blog post) but has been awesome for blogging! I got into a schedule and though I’m still working on keeping on that schedule it has gotten me to write a lot of blog posts. 64 blog posts to be exact! I also decided this year that I wanted to write what I wanted to write about and by doing that it opened so many doors for me to write freely as I pleased. This time of year is all about reflecting on the year so I thought I would talk to you about my favorite blog posts that I wrote this year! I tried a lot of new things when it comes to blog posts whether it was the topic of the blog post or the background of a blog post, but I was having fun with all of them! So let’s get into it, here are My Favorite Blog Posts in 2017!
Happy Monday and welcome to day 12 of my 12 days of Blogmas! MERRY CHRISTMAS! All of these blog posts have been leading up to this day! I’ve talked about my wrapping, tree decorations and even a Christmas makeup fail but I haven’t shown you a holiday outfit…until today! During my week of Halloween blogs, I showed you my Halloween costume but I wanted to set it up a notch because during the holiday season you aren’t just going to wear one outfit. So I created a Holiday Lookbook! From showing a little glam to full-on Christmas here are 3 looks for the Holiday season! So let’s get into it, here is my Holiday Lookbook for 2017!
Happy Sunday and welcome to day 11 of my 12 days of Blogmas! IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE! (someone in the background yelling Hooray!) Everyone is getting glammed up for the festivities of Christmas Eve so I thought I would a Christmas Glam makeup tutorial for you since I am a pro (already laughing at myself) now at tutorials since I did my first and only one in back in the fall. But I didn’t want to do just any Christmas Glam makeup tutorial since you’ve seen pretty much all the makeup I usually use. So I thought to myself with the holidays and people spending a lot of money this season I would do a Christmas Glam makeup tutorial using only drugstore products!
I already had a few things before so I just had to get a few and I had an idea of what I wanted to do so I went to Target and got some makeup! Planning for this blog post I tested the look and it completely failed. Nothing went the way I wanted to for this makeup look and was instantly discouraged. Luckily this was all drugstore makeup because I also felt like I just spent a bunch of money on makeup I’ll never use again. I slept on it and after thinking about it I didn’t want to seem like everything was a waste so I thought instead of just throwing this idea away and writing a different blog post I would talk about it. I wanted to have all 12 days of Blogmas be happy and cheerful for the holidays but sometimes things don’t go by plan and we should still talk about it! So let’s get into it, here is my Christmas Glam Fail! What Worked and Did Not!
Happy Saturday and welcome to day 10 of my 12 days of Blogmas! It’s the Eve of Christmas Eve so everyone is gathering up their family recipes, pulling out their ugly Christmas sweaters and wrapping their presents and setting them under their Christmas trees. So as the festivities start I thought I would share with you my Christmas Tree decorations today! So let’s just jump right into it! Here are my Christmas Tree Decorations!
Happy Friday and Welcome to Day 9 of my 12 days of Blogmas! Its the weekend before Christmas so everyone is starting the holiday festivities early with attending a bunch of Holiday Parties! To the office parties, to the last minute parties most festive parties have a Secret Santa or a White Elephant aspect to it. I don’t know about you but White Elephant and Secret Santa give me crazy anxiety because I never know what to get. Especially with White Elephant, what can I get that a random person can enjoy? If you said yes you are like me, today’s blog post is perfect for you! I have made up a list of items that would be perfect for any type of Holiday parties! Even if you aren’t going to a White Elephant or Secret Santa party but are struggling with the last minute gift you can find the perfect gift with this list! That being said, let’s get right into! Here is my Last Minute Gift Guide!
Happy Thursday and welcome to Day 8 on my 12 days of Blogmas! Today I wanted to do a blog post a little different from my other blog posts. This past weekend I got the honor of watching my little sister Fallan graduate college so I thought that I would share that day with you today. I’m calling it a “Day in the Life” and if it goes well, maybe I’ll do another one. I’m still a little nervous and don’t really have the right equipment to “vlog” so pictures and captions will just have to do for now. But hey, goals for one day! That all being said, let’s get right into it! Here is A Day in My Life, My Little Sister’s Graduation!
Happy Wednesday and welcome to Day 7 on my 12 days of Blogmas! I did a post like this last year but it’s a new year so I wanted to share what I did for this years Christmas Cards! If you haven’t read my post from last year or even my Halloween Treat bags this past Halloween I have this new tradition of making Christmas cards for my co-workers. By doing these Christmas Cards it shows my appreciation for my co-workers in the past year plus it gives me a chance to work on my hand lettering. Like I said in my Halloween Treat bag posts if you are one of my co-workers reading this post you get a little sneak peak of your Christmas Card so just warning you now and you are appreciated! That being all said let’s get right into it! Here are my Christmas Cards 2017!
