TOP READ POSTS FROM 2018

Happy New Year, everyone!! Hope you all had a fun, safe weekend! I kind of went MIA on my blog. This pregnancy has worn me out and I’ve had a hard time keeping up BUT I am back! 🙂

I actually went through my analytics to see what you all read the most of on my blog and it was pretty obvious what you guys like, lol! Its so fun to look at the year as a whole and see what you all searched for – everything from self tanner, curling iron, mascara, etc. SO, what I thought would be valuable to you all is to recap the top read posts in ONE place in case you are hunting something down.

I narrowed it down to around 15 posts and as you scroll you will see an image and a title/link so you can read the original post for all info.

If you are new here, I do blog 5 days a week and I have for 4 years!? Crazy to believe that but I have TONS of content here – I’m always updating and sharing outfits, baby stuff, pregnancy things, makeup products, & more. I have a menu tab where I file away all HOME, BEAUTY, TRAVEL, & SEASONAL looks. So if you are ever trying to narrow down a search those will help!

ALSO! GIVEAWAY ALERT?! I really want feedback on what types of posts you want to see in 2019. Leave a comment here on my blog letting me know what posts you find most valuable or simply enjoy reading the post. I’ll pick 3 winners – I’m giving away a $50 Amazon Gift Card, a Riki Cutie Travel Mirror, & a $50 Starbucks gift card! SO PLEASE COMMENT and leave me some feedback on your favorite types of posts!

It can be as simple as you’d like to read pregnancy update posts, new construction home update posts, skincare, makeup, travel, Q&As, –  just comment it!

READ BEST OF BASICS POST HERE.

In this post from last January, I shared my favorites tees, jeans, leggings, sweaters, tennis shoes, & more! If you guys would like, I can do it again in January 2019 – just leave me a comment and let me know! I love getting feedback.

And just an FYI – THESE leggings are still my favorites. I’ve worn them for 3-4 years now – pregnant/not pregnant – and I’ve tried ALL kinds of leggings and always come back to these. They stay up and don’t roll down, feel amazing, hide flaws, and keep their color and don’t pill. I wear an XS usually and as my stomach starts growing I will switch over to size small during the last part of being pregnant!

HOLY GRAIL BEAUTY FAVORITES | READ POST HERE

If you are new to following my blog, I post 5 days per week & I always incorporate a BEAUTY post into the five days. Typically the beauty post is mid-week.

I try new products each week so I am constantly updating on new favorites!

In 2017, I mainly wore THIS foundation [obsessed], used THIS BRONZER, THIS MASCARA, THIS HIGHLIGHTER & THIS EYE LINER. If you read the post above it actually shares my favorite lip combos and more though! [This beauty post has a lot of my HG products of 2018 as well!]

A few of my favorite brands from the past year are SKII [love their essence, moisturizer, & toner], Lancome, Kiehls, Charlotte Tilbury… wow I could go on forever! HA!

For the new year id love to see posts about everyday things you do around the house like recipes you make often for your fam, how you stay organized/clean, how you start your day (what a typical day for you looks like), etc. also your makeup posts are my fave and so are the Nordstrom haul ones. I esp love seeing posts about designer bag reviews. I found your blog when I was searching on goyard/neverfull tote comparisons and it was SOOOOOO helpful! U were so detailed that I felt comfortable making a decision after reading your post. I know you have the lv croisette, I’d love to hear your thoughts on that bag!!! i’ve been considering it and would love to hear what you think of it. And your insta roundup posts are fun because there is so much in those posts that everyone will find something they like.

  48. Hello emily, i would love to see more skincare and real life stuff (love your instagram posts BTW). happy new year!!!!

  50. Love the makeup/beauty posts, as well as your outfit ideas. A ‘basics’ (tees/jeans/shoes/etc) uPdatE for 2019 would be awesome ? ?

  51. hi Emily! my favorite posts of yours are house updates, athleisure, ig roundups, and az travel guide. thanks! my instagram is @Kelly_masten

  52. I love all your posts, but as a mom to a 1-year old i’d love to hear tips and tricks for getting ready and trying to still look fashionable, yet be functional with chasing around a 1-year old….lol! also, I am a big bargain shopper so i would love to see posts on target clothes (not sure if you have a sponsorship/relationship with target) b/c they have awesome clothes for men. women and kids. I have seen a few of your walmart posts, but I just am a very loyal target shopper and honestly never go to walmart.
    would love to see more on home decor, too! and of course pregnancy related products related to skin, since so many women battle hormonal breakouts during pregnancy, etc. i really struggled with that when I was pregnant and it was so hard to find skin care products I could use that were safe.
    love all your posts, though so just keep doing what you have been doing.
    happy new year!

  76. Ok firstly, all of your posts are great. ?But looove seeing posts about house uPdates and vacations yall are taking as a fam and best recs while there!

  77. I would love to continue to see posts about your favorites (bags, makeup, clothing, etc), home update(s) because it looks so good already and you’re not even finished with it and baby updates (both luke bear aNd the new arrival),

    Id like to see some restaurant/place reviews since you travel so much (it’d be cool to see!).

    I really enjoy Your “best of”, must haves and favorites blog posts. They really help me choose things im interested in, thanks to you! Also when you let us know any current or upcoming sales (esp from Nordstrom)

    Hope this 2019 year brings you and your family a lot of happiness. Thank you for your continuous work on your blogs. All of your work Goes apprEciated and I hope you know that!

  78. I’d love to see more home decor for the house you’re building and who you follow for inspiration. I love reading about your family and the places You travel to as it gives me ideas about children friendly places.

  79. I’m a fairly new reader, but I love the beauty posts especially! i frequently don’t have time to research which products work best, so having someone give her opinion is a lifesaver. i’m also about to read your disney style post, we’re headed there next january, and i can’t wait to see how you styled your outfits!

  80. Hands down My favorite is the new house Reveal! I started my college career majoring in architecture And sEeing all the House building pictures and progress on your bloG (and instagram) makes me so happy and excited to build my own too.

  81. I would love to see more make up tutorials. I am terrible at doing my make-up and could definitely use the help. Also would love more of your fashion try ons. I love the way you put everything together. Always looks like a million bucks without it costing a million! Thanks for all you do Emily!

Thank you for Working so hard to have a successful blog! Happy New Year!

  91. my favorites are life updates, skin care and anything fashion related. I would really love a post about what skin care/beauty products you tried and didn’t like. especially if those products are “all the rage” since sometimes that can be misleading.

  100. emily,
    i love all of your hair and makeup posts. as well as your gift guides!!
    one thing i would love to see is you going through target and picking all of your favorite items every month or so. thanks girl!!

  101. I love the type of post where you become real, raw, and candid about your life and experiences. May that be a beauty product you were loving one week or a crazy experience you had. I look up to you as a person in college and aspire to be an maybe an ounce of what you are one day. Wait! Also I love that you can talk about God freely because not many people do that these days.

  102. Your blog is so good On fashion, outfit, styling, and Beauty. It would be nice for 2019 to show home/life style. Like how you style your KITCHEN , office, bathrOom, baCkyard, and so on. What kind of coFfee or tea brands aRe you drinking at the moment. Dinning set or mugs you are loving. Something like that.

    1. I think if they are a goo fit for you than that is what matters! Personally, I am not in a place in life where they are a fit – being pregnant, nursing, or even trying to conceive kind of means staying away from any toxins or anything potentially dangerous to a babe.
