HAPPY FRI-YAY. Now that I have FINALLY kicked this flu bug OUT OF MY HOUSE, I am back in action and goal planning for 2018 like CRAZY. I’ve been seeing these posts float around for a while and they are some of my FAVORITE to read. If you are a new reader, consider this your crash course in Blonde & Ambitious Blog. These are my TOP 10 MOST READ posts of 2017 – so you know they’re good. I am always surprised at which posts get the most love during the year. Sometimes they’re the ones I don’t even expect! Pinterest has taken quite a few of my posts and run with them, which is always awesome. I’m listing these from 10-1 so make sure you read all the way to the bottom to get to the NUMBER ONE post of B&A. Let’s dive into it!
This post did SO well and it isn’t hard to see why: beautiful beaches, cute swimsuits, thoughts of somewhere tropical….and a comprehensive guide to one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been! My husband and I were able to review a fabulous resort in June and I can’t wait to book our next vacay there…it is absolutely one we would visit again. Pro tip: it does help if you know a little bit of Spanish. Thank goodness my husband is fluent. LOL.
I guess I need to do more swatch posts! This post reviews the Sephora Cream Lipstick Vault – the most insane and beautiful box of lipsticks I have ever received. I’m pretty sure it arrived on my birthday this year. I have since lost the box and all of the names of the colors so I have to constantly refer back to this image when I use it in video tutorials. #whoops
IF YOU HAVEN’T TAKEN THIS CHALLENGE YET – WHAT ARE YOU DOING. NOW IS THE PERFECT TIME TO START BECAUSE HELLO IT’S THE NEW YEAR. I had SO much positive feedback on this post and it went a little bit crazy on Pinterest (52K+ repins and counting). I feel so happy that I was able help some of you out in a small way by finding your confidence this year. If you don’t read ANYTHING else this winter, read this one!
This was another one that went Pinterest crazy (32K repins + and counting). I get views on this post every day! This year was the year that I got REALLY into yoga. I was pretty good at doing at least twice a week until the holidays got crazy – but I am going to definitely get back into it starting in January. I am bound and determined to get my splits again. It’s one of my 2018 goals! Get out this post to see all the amazing benefits of adding yoga to your routine and join me in 2018!
I love that this one did SO well!!! This is one of my FAVORITE hair styles for shorter hair (collar bone or shorter). It’s totally adorable and really easy to learn. It is currently my most popular youtube video as well! If you didn’t know I had a youtube channel – now is the time to check it out 😉 But for real, this hair is also SUPER cute if you need a look for NYE this year.
This was also one that was popular on Pinterest (34K+ repins), and for good reason. I broke down each makeup brush in my collection so my beginner makeup junkies could figure out exactly which brushes you need to buy and use to really up your makeup game. I also link to each brush so you can fill out your collection!
This one is my most repinned pin on Pinterest of ALL TIME (111K+ repins) and I get views on this post every single day!!! If you need the best packing list ever – this is it. Print this list out and keep it in your suitcase so you can make sure that you don’t forget anything on your next vacay!
This is the most PERFECT guide for starting the new year. New year, new planner, amiright? I LOVE starting my year off with a fresh planner – it has so much potential for new goals, amazing plans and more. The Erin Condren planner is by far the best planner I’ve ever had to date and I am a pretty picky planner lover.
Remember when I said I should do more swatches? I really should! This one ranks on page 1 of Google for the keyword limelight by alcone review, and that is where most of the views come from every day. It’s a great one for learning more about this makeup brand if you’re interested!
Honestly – I have been meaning to redo these images forever for you and do an entire youtube video with these looks! If you’re interested in that – make sure to let me know in the comments below. I love this post because it’s perfect for almost EVERY hair length and the styles literally SAVED me when I was in college trying to make it to class on time and also look cute and also sleep in.
I hope you loved this round up – and if you’re new here, I hope you took this opportunity to poke around these popular posts and get a good feel for how we work around these parts! I am also taking this time to poll my readers on what they want to see MOST on B&A next year, so if you want to cast your vote head on over to my Facebook page HERE to do so!
