Top 5 Posts of 2015


There's nothing like looking back on your success and achievements to help motivate you into the new year. I often go through a bit of a slump this time of year with the ideology that resolutions should be made in order to turn you into a better person. This year, I've kind of been stuck with what I wanted to decide on as my one true goal. Where my blog is concerned, this past year has made me so proud. I've kept up a schedule for an entire year and even managed to daily blog for a bit of it. I've talked about things

So I thought seeing as 2015 is almost over I wanted to recap my 5 most liked posts of the year.

Style Icon: Emma Stone


I can't believe this one came up tops. Fashion posts are so much harder for me to put together than a nail polish post or a haul or a review. With cosmetics and makeup it's just being honest, tell you what I love or hate about a product and why. With fashion, it's a lot harder for me to grasp a direction, a trend. I wouldn't call myself a particularly fashionable person, my friend Emma for example, she's got fashion down to a T, I'm more of a wear what I'm warm and comfortable in and hope it meets standards. Which is exactly why this post being number 1 for most viewed in 2015 is such a shock.

Back to School: Songs to get you through...


I am honestly so glad that this post was liked as much as it was. It was so fun but also completely heartbreaking writing this post. Trying to come up with a bunch of times in your high school lives where you're going to turn to music to grieve or celebrate and then find the perfect songs to help you get through that. I relived a lot of my high school memories writing it. I'd be interested to know if it's helped anyone yet actually? A lot can happen in 4 months.


How much does my face cost?


I love reading posts like this and enjoyed writing this post just as much. It's kind of like insightful, knowing how much money you're spending on looking a certain way. It's then kind of nice to know that someone else is spending just as much as you. I'd quite like to do an updated version actually, I know I only posted this 2 months ago but I've since been to all of the Sephora's in Manhattan and Christmas made an appearance...

Zoeva Classic Brush Set


I mentioned this one in my Favourite Blogmas post on Christmas Eve and it's kind of really cool for me to know that you loved it as mich as I did. I love putting my all into the imagery that I upload, for me I know whether I'm going to like a blog by what sort of photography they take. I know, never judge a book by its cover, the writing should be what it's about, but I'm a very creative person and that is where the true tale lies for me. And I honestly loved the Christmas graphics that I put on all my images and this is probably the best example.

Barry M Sunset Nails - Autumn Shades


I have loved the Daylight Curing range by Barry M this year, in fact, keep an eye out for my 2015 favourites on January 2nd because they are definitely going to making an appearance. It was a new release early-ish on in 2015 but the Autumn shades, like I said in this post, were made for me. There was nothing about the Autumn editions to the collection that I didn't love.

I am so happy and overwhelmed by the support I have received over in this corner of the internet this year. I have reached a place that I never imaged getting to and am really looking forward to where 2016 is going to take us. I'm still planning this year's editorial calendar so if there is anything at all you'd like to see, let me know in the comments.

Thank you again for all of your love and support.

Love always,
Melissa
