2018 Rewind: My Favourite Posts of 2018

motivation, inspiration, writing, lessons, blogger

Blogging is an interesting little hobby. I always find it a bit strange that my entire Instagram is full of photos of myself posing in fancy neighborhoods I don’t live in, and that these also populate my blog posts. At the same time, I do like sharing what I’m wearing, I love the imagery and the creative aspect of things, and down to the crux of it I love to write. At some point this year or last, I asked myself – “okay, what value am I bringing with my blog?” I think things are easier to stick to and do well at when there’s a purpose behind it, and as I got a bit older, spending my time writing in depth about my pairings of New Look tops and Zara skirts just wasn’t doing it for me anymore. That’s not to say that there’s anything wrong with this, but if this had been something I’d continued to do regularly, I would have found it harder to stick at this blogging thing. I still like my “fluffy” posts that require little energy and aren’t quite part of the “think piece” trend, but for sure my favourite posts of the year (and those that have been the most read), are those that have taken more time, more thought and essentially – more of me.

Here are my top 5 favourite posts of 2018, and the stories behind them…

Let’s talk about these boots! For me, a pair of Chelseas and some knee highs are totally and truly my go-tos when it comes to simple black boots (that work with every outfit) for colder days. I am also a sucker for play/jumpsuits as they seriously highlight your curves. Hidden Fashion has got you covered for both (plus – they’re having a Black Friday sale), so go, go, go!

I’m a big advocate of New Year’s Resolutions – I’m not quite down the “New Year, New Me” road (perhaps I was when I was 12 years old), but I think rounding up your year and setting goals for the next year is the best way to reflect and keep pushing (a nice bit of cheese for you this evening!) If I’m totally honest, I usually spend all this time thinking up my resolutions for the next year, start January on some sort of goal-getting-high, and then November rolls around (like now), and I scratch my head and ask myself oh yeah… what were those things I wanted to do again? Let’s say this is you – you’ve checked back on your resolutions and maybee… things haven’t quite gone to plan. But there’s only a month or so left of the year… so how do you finish on as high of a note as possible?
