Some things change, while others stay the same. We made it to our one year blog anniversary! Join the celebration and check out our top 11 posts!
Hi All! I know it’s been awhile, but I promise I haven’t forgotten about you. I’ve been busy at work behind the scenes, editing like a mad woman. Ok, ok – maybe not quite like a mad woman, but you get my meaning. But, enough about me! If you’ve been following, then you may already know (or have surmised from today’s title) that today is our one year blog anniversary. I can hardly believe it! Exactly one year ago today we published our first ever blog post.
Since then, we’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with an amazing, eclectic, diverse, and unique group of writers. All of whom have brought something original to the table, whether that be a distinctive voice, one-of-a-kind humor, or just really great ideas! Today, in honor of our anniversary, I’m going to give all of our readers (new and old alike) our top, favorite, absolute greatest 11 posts from the past year. So, without further ado and in no particular order...
This was the first blog post that Alexa wrote for us and when we read it, we knew we had a real winner. Not only did Alexa talk about healthy desserts (say what?), but she did so in a way that let her voice shine through. And, who doesn’t love dessert, right? Although this was written during the holiday season, as everyone knows desserts are a year round thing. Check out Alexa’s take on how you can satisfy your sweet tooth, without completely ruining your diet!
Kati wrote this fantastic post for us and it was the one that we selected to be our very first blog post ever. Because of that (on top of the fact that it’s spot-on), this one is definitely dear to our hearts. Kati shows us that kitchen sinks have a purpose outside of just washing dishes! Who knew? Apparently Kati did!
Hailey is bringing the classics back in a major way! Not only do we love Hailey’s awesome 90s references, which she makes frequently in her posts, but we also love her enthusiasm for everything related to hosting and hosting (and doing it well). Bar carts definitely need to make a comeback and Hailey tells us exactly why they’re the bee’s knees in this post!
There’s almost nothing better in this world than wine and cheese! Maybe that’s a slight exaggeration, but everyone can stand to learn a little more about wine (in our opinion, of course). Wine can be complicated, luckily Bethany breaks down the basics in this fun and informative post. Did we already mention that wine and cheese are involved?
Let’s give ‘em somethin’ to talk about! It’s been a year & we’re still going strong! #BlogAnniversary #Whoop
Zunika always lets us know what’s on-trend in the world of interior design, and this chalkboard paint post is no exception. Chalkboard paint is basically amazing and can be used anywhere in the home. Bathroom? Check! Kitchen? Check! At the dining table? You guessed it, check!
Obviously, this one had to make the list. Fashion DIYs for the Frugal Fashionista is one of our most visited posts to date. Alexa shows us all how we can still look fab even when we’re on a budget. These super awesome DIY ideas are great for everyone - from budding fashionistas to full on fashion divas!
Being an interior design enthusiast is all about passion! At some point in time, everyone has to do a little interior design. It might be simply decorating your home or even giving someone else advice. Phylicia, in her usual upbeat way, lets us know how everyone, no matter what their budgets, backgrounds, or interests, can be an interior design enthusiast!
Anyone who knows anything about art has heard of Salvador Dali and Frida Kahlo. In this post, Kati tells us about her love for both of these iconic artists and also gives us the 411 on their lives, their artwork, and their fashion! What could be better than that?
Meal prepping is totally a thing and we learned all about it from Hailey! This blog post provides all the info we need to stop taking the easy route (no more fast food) and start taking a little more time to plan ahead. At the end of the day, you'll be thanking yourself. Say yes to meal prep! We sure did!
Ok, clay pots sound pretty boring. But NO… There are so many amazingly cool and fun ways to upcycle old flower pots AND you get to repurpose someone else’s trash! Bethany gives us the lowdown (and shows us lots of pretty pictures) in her blog post on going green.
Shine bright like a diamond! Better yet like gold, brass, and copper. We love this post, which gives lots of ideas for how to incorporate metallic accents into your home decor. Some of them expected, and others entirely unexpected. Copper desk chair anyone? This post is a great example of Zunika showing us how to get it done in our homes!
That about wraps it up for today! Whether you’ve been with us since the beginning or you’re a brand new reader today, we’re glad that you joined us.
