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!
Note: If you haven’t read any of the blog posts I will be talking about and want to check it out, there will be links for each of them!
The first is, of course, the blog post where I decided I wanted to write about what I wanted to write about and that is the Anime Tag! I have to thank this blog post as well because it became a lot of anime content for me in 2017 and will be in 2018!
Lime Crime Velvetine Liquid Lipstick Swatches and Review!
The next one is my first ever makeup review and my first ever Lime Crime Product! I honestly didn’t know what I was doing but it was so much figuring out what to do and what to talk about. I didn’t know then but Lime Crime has become one of my all-time favorite makeup brands and I plan on doing more makeup reviews in the new year!
Sailor Moon and I Are The Same Person?
Fellow blog post writers may understand this, but do you know that feeling of just pure fun when you are writing a blog post, well I had that exact feeling while writing this blog post. This blog post isn’t even that long and it’s made up of mostly pictures but I had so much fun putting this one together! I was sitting in my chair the whole time smiling!
What House Do I Belong To?// My Sorting Hat Experience
The next blog post is about my Sorting Hat Experience. I remember that day when I was working on this blog post. I was sitting at Starbucks with my older sister and best friend and we were all working on our separate things and I was getting so frustrated because I didn’t get Hufflepuff the first try. I remember by the end of the day having to accept my fate and sleeping on it and then waking up the next morning willing to try it again, and oh I was so happy I did. There was so much joy when yellow and black showed up on my computer screen I couldn’t help but cry a little. Happy tears of course. I am glad I did it though because it leads to more Harry Potter blog posts down the line and in the new year!
My Favorite Anime Endings!
Out of the questions on my Anime Tag, I was most excited to answer this question and make a blog post out of it. I love love love anime music and loved sharing those with you guys.
It’s Already Over?!// My Thoughts on Attack On Titan Season 2! (Spoilers!)
So you guys already know my love for Attack On Titan… so, of course, I had to write about season 2! I remember watching it at my old apartment and during the last episode I found myself thinking “This seems like it’s setting us up for the end of the season…this better not be the end of the season…” and surely it was the end of the season. I had so much I wanted to talk about and my roommate has heard it multiple times from me already so I had to talk about it! I’m still waiting on updates on season 3, but until then I still have a bunch of AoT stuff to watch and talk about!
Getting Back into Adobe Illustrator// Motivational Quotes and Why I Love Graphic Design!
This was the blog post before life went a few crazy for a few months and I had to step away from blogging. I love this blog post so much because as it says in the title this is Why I Love Graphic Design. I was only using Adobe Illustrator to make Blog Post pictures and was starting to get burnt out. This blog post reminded me why I got it in the first place. Also, who knew back then how much I could create them and will create in the future with my Etsy shop!
A Quick Thought
A month or two passed and though life kept on throwing things in my way that left me stressed and anxious I started to slowly get back into blogging. I wrote a blog post here and there but then one day I had a random thought. A thought that I couldn’t stop thinking about and had to write about it to get it all organized. It’s not much of a blog post, there aren’t any headers or any pictures and it’s just me writing out my thoughts but after hitting publish I felt at ease. I felt like after having that thought I can finally stop letting life and stress get to me as much as it was and start moving forwards.
My Halloween Costume 2017!
Halloween is my favorite time of year and to celebrate it I had a new Halloween blog post every day for a week leading up to Halloween and this blog post that I was working on since the beginning of October. I had so much fun with this blog post because not only was it fun collecting the costume (team Hufflepuff forever) but it was awesome being able to have my friend Melissa help out with this. She’s an awesome photographer and an even better friend! This opened so many doors to do more blog posts like this (aka my Holiday Look Book) and I really just wanted an excuse to be in Hufflepuff attire running around with a wand.
My True Number 1 Husbando!
Do you remember that feeling I was talking about when writing a blog post? Well, I had it in this blog post. I was dying to do this blog post but couldn’t do it during the week of Halloween so I had to wait until then but it was a blog post that I had to get out in the world, for my own personal sake. I was getting more and more excited as I was writing it and couldn’t wait to get it out. I think it turned out awesome too and I am proud of it.
Blogmas Day 5: Sephora Gift Sets that are worth your buck!
Though I didn’t do Doodlemas like I did last year, Blogmas was just as fun, maybe even more fun. It was fun collecting ideas and writing them to get into the Christmas spirit. Out of the 12 though they were all fun to create my favorite one was the Sephora Gift Sets. This blog post was great not only to help others think of a good present but as a fellow makeup lover it got me to look at gift sets for myself as well! I didn’t think about it until after I wrote it but I totally forgot about doing this same idea for Ulta, but I guess there’s always next year!
So that’s it! I’m going to be saying this a lot but none of these blog posts could have been possible without the love and support from you guys! Especially during the holidays when I was posting every day, your guy’s support is what kept me posting! I hope you enjoyed this blog post as much as I did putting it together! What were some of your favorite blog posts? What kind of blog posts would you like to see in the new year? Let me know in the comments below, you know me I am always up to new ideas! I hope you guys have a wonderful Friday and I will see you soon for the last blog post of 2017!
