Wow. What a whirlwind.
That is literally what I think of when I think back on 2017. From my roommate moving out of our 2-bedroom apartment in January to adopting Chips in the same month to bringing my assistant to full-time status in April to traveling to 8 different countries in the course of the year to moving in September …. it’s just insane to think of what the year held. But, THAT’S not even what I juggled on the blog, hah! There were numerous exciting campaigns with new and veteran partners, an increase in lifestyle topics and travel content here on S&T, a decrease in dedicated outfit posts, an obstacle that was fought for and won [more on this soon!] for the betterment of the blog in the long run, and so much warmth and love given to me freely by so many of you! You’ve flocked to so many posts and left the sweetest comments, making me feel truly understood and loved. Thank you so much for what you’ve done for S&T this year and allowing me to make a living out of a passion I have.
From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much!
I know this post seems a little outdated, being that it’s almost February at this point but, since I was traveling during the week after Christmas and the New Year holiday, I’m still playing catch up on end of year content. Today, I’m sharing the most popular blog posts of 2017! Since I got back from my trip, I’ve taken quite a bit of time to really reflect on this list and what it says about what y’all gravitate toward, what you value and what you’re wanting to see more of from me. The saying ‘actions speak so much louder than words’ applies to so much more than just the people in our lives. It also applies when I’m looking at my blog analytics. I mean y’all might say you love my style but … when not ONE of these posts is a dedicated outfit post, it makes me truly believe y’all like more than just that! It speaks VOLUMES to me and I want you to know I hear you! I want my little piece of the internet to be a place y’all truly love coming to so, although this list is helpful, it doesn’t give me a complete picture of what all of you want to see moving forward. So, with that said, I’ve shared a link to my 2017 Reader Survey [at the end of this post] for you to fill out to help me understand how I can make this place better for you! As a thank you for contributing your insight, you’ll be entered to win a REALLY exciting giveaway! 🙂
Now, without any further rambling … here are your favorite posts from 2017 on Sequins & Things!
I. Louis Vuitton vs. Goyard Handbag Review
Purchasing designer handbags should not be entered into lightly. You should do your research and make decisions based on that, so it was exciting to see so many of you use this post to do just that! Leave me a comment and let me know which one you ended up buying and if this post helped you make your decision! 🙂
II. 2017 New Years Resolutions
This surprised me a little bit, I’m not going to lie! I know y’all love when I open up and share personal, heartfelt things but, I didn’t know so many of you were intrigued to read my New Years Resolutions! But, hey! I’m flattered and hope they inspired some of yours!
III. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks + Chloe Giveaway
There was no surprise with this one! So many of y’all love this sale and just saving money on great items, in general! Who wouldn’t, really?
IV. Review + Q&A: Picoway Laser Facial Treatment
Exploring ways to improve the health and look of my skin was one of my favorite endeavors of 2017 and it blew me away how many of you were so intrigued by the path I chose, a laser treatment sequence. I was so irresponsible in the sun when I was in high school and college and my skin paid the price. I’m so lucky that I didn’t get anything worse than sunspots, although these are pretty bad – as you can see! I’m happy I was able to enlighten so many of y’all on cosmetic procedures that really are for the benefit of your skin and, as a result, your confidence! I have every intention of following up on this post in the next couple of months to share how my skin is looking now. I have one last treatment to get this week, actually, so stay tuned for an update!
V. Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Product Review
Y’all love try-on haul’s and I’ll do my best to do them periodically throughout the year for you guys!
VI. Personal: Life Update + Q&A
Again, y’all love when I get personal with you so it was no surprise that my moving announcement post did so well! It means so much to me that you would send ME your questions on a variety of topics, from travel to skincare, and it’s always fun to sit down with so many of them and just KNOCK ’em out! My assistant, Justine, and I have been wracking our brains trying to figure out a new system for getting back to email and direct message questions and we think we found a great solution! Stay tuned in the coming weeks for that announcement!
VII. 10 Must-Have Packing Items For International Travel
Y’all know I love to travel and while I feel very blessed I can travel for work … I also want to make sure I use what I learn to help y’all travel better and / or feel more comfortable getting out there with my suggestions for travel essentials! I’m so happy this post has done just that!
VIII. 25 Chic Home Decor Options
Do y’all want more posts like this in 2018?
IX. Living Room Reveal Including NSale Home Items
I was so happy to partner with a local staging company to finally get my living room fully decorated! They did an amazing job finding pieces that captured my personal style. Glad y’all enjoyed checking it out! Be sure to let me know if you’d like to see more home decor from me this year!
X. Mexico Travel Guide: Tulum
My trip to Tulum in 2016 was dreamy and I can’t recommend you taking a trip down there enough! It’s a much better choice than Playa del Carmen or Cancun in my book so I’m excited to see so many of y’all have an interest! My outfit above is a good indication of my uniform that week – bathing suits, coverups and bare feet! The outfits from my Tulum trip are chronicled in THIS old Instagram Roundup!
As I mentioned in the beginning of the post, I want this to be the best year yet for S&T and create more posts that you love and have asked for! So that I know what to put my energy into, it would be SO helpful if you could fill out the 2017 Sequins & Things Reader Survey! Filling out the survey will automatically submit your entry to win a Sony a5100 Mirrorless Camera that I’ve used on multiple trips this year! The winner will also receive a 32GM SD card and their choice of a protective case from a link provided to you. Good luck to all! xo.
*** BONUS: You’ll receive a bonus entry in the giveaway if you leave a comment answering the following question: What was your favorite post on Sequins & Things this year?
I loved the living room reveal! I bought so many cute options off of the post such as your curtains and wall flowers from Nordstrom! My next will be the couch! 🙂
One of my favorites is the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale recap/try-on!
I’ve loved reading your blog over the past year, Alyson! It’s been so much fun and I absolutely loved the reveal of your living room!!
I hope you’ve had a great Tuesday so far,
Tulum travel guide was my favorite. Loved the photos.
Your winter wear and ski posts were life saving for me. As a thirty something year old I took my first ski trip to Breckenridge and was clueless to what I need to wear when skiing. I was more than prepared after reading your post a few times. Thank you!
I loved your home decor living room reveal ????
Your try on hauls! I still love your fashion posts!
That’s easy! I loved the living room decor post and your Christmas decoration post! We’re considering a move to Florida, and your bright and airy look is very inspiring 🙂
I loved the Greece travel guide. I want to go so badly and it just motivates me more to save for it!
I love any and ALL handbag reviews you do! I’m always looking to buy a new bag [ha!] and appreciate a closer look at them!
My favorite post was one totally opposite of the reason I began following you— for fashion! I truly enjoyed the 25 Chic Decorating Ideas blog post. It was informative and fun to read an unexpected post that really helped to mix up things on your blog!
My FAV post was The Packing List: Paris in the Fall and Winter. I have never traveled out of the country so reading, well, all of your travel guides, gives me serious motivation!
I loved your post about Santorini! We went there for our honeymoon in September and I planned out quite a few places that you recommended. We loved Sunset Taverna and Santo Wines! We are planning a birthday trip for me in June or a nice 1 year anniversary trip (the first anniversary gift is paper, so… plane ticket?!) and I have been all over your blog for reccomendations for our 2018 travel!!
I loved the packing list for international travel, I’m going to Europe in a few month and your post definitely helped me know what to pack and get better prepared.
I love all your posts but the decor posts are my favorites!
Your posts on the Nordstrom Yearly Sales are my favorite. I love how you show the items on and if you truly like them or not. That makes it easier to decide for me, instead of just pictures or a flat lay.
I loved your living room post and the post that you did with your laser treatment. I am thing of doing something like that. Thank you for all the time and effort you put into everything. I also love seeing the instagram post of you fur babies.
I thought the post of the Picoway laser treatment was very interesting.
The nordstrom anniversary sale round up and haul!!
I loved your Florence Travel Diary and your what to wear in London posts.
I loved in one of your resolution/health/fitness posts you discussed how everyone is struggling with their own situation with their bodies and while that should seem obvious, it’s not always and overall it felt well phrased by you!
The London restaurant guide was fabulous! I still have a saved list in my phone of all the restaurants I want to try and the ones I did for my next trip ☺️????????
My favorite post was your Q&A but I also love your try-on hauls! I also love your Insta stories w/ Fish & Chips.
I love all of these posts! They are so well thought out! And there is always a good variety of travel, fashion, home, the boys????, etc. But I would have to say some of my favorites are the travel tips. Inspired so many trips coming up this year! Can hardly wait!
I would have to say your travel must haves was my favorite post since I will be taking my first international trip to London this year! It is extremely helpful and I love all of your recommendations.
Your Nordstrom anniversary sale as well as your packing / organizational tips for traveling were hands down my favorite. You always add so much detail to your posts and really makes reading and finding this so easy.
I had two favorites: 10 Must Have Packing Items and ALL of your Black Friday Sale Posts!!! Shopped those posts a ton because I loved so much of what you included. 🙂
I love the nordstrom yearly sales and how you show how to style and also when you review what you bought. Xo
My favorite post was your 10 Must-Have Packing Items for Traveling! I am a girl who travels often and I referenced back to this post many times. Would love more posts like this! 🙂 <3
My favorite posts this year were the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts. It makes it a lot easier to shop and I love seeing the try on hauls and how everything fits before I buy it. It really helps me decide what to buy!
Not just saying this… but i love all your posts! Travel, personal, etc. However, the one that benefited me the most was the Nordstrom try on haul. I’m already a shopaholic, but your post helped guide me to what I really should be looking for or passing on! ????
Hello! I really loved the home decor post, especially the living room as well as your laser treatment posts. The laser posts were so informative and a great opportunity to see what they can do before doing it yourself. Thanks for being open with that!
Love the Tulum post so much with all of the bright colors! Also love anything you post about Paris—makes me want to jump on a plane to France and wear exactly what you’re wearing! Keep up the amazing work!
I love personal life updates! I feel like the readers get to know you somewhat! Also love all the home decor we can get & travel diary posts.
I really loved your spring shoe review!!!! And of course your nordstrom fall sale outfit post.
Definitely the sale try ons (Nordstorm Sale)
I love the posts about Fish/Chips & Nordstrom Anniversary sales!
This is tough to answer because I’m really enjoying so many different ones. Love all the travel posts, really giving me some serious Wonderlust! Lol.
Also yes please to more home decor!
And of course I love catching up with Fish and Chips. They’re such cuties!
I Loved your travel post about Italy. I was just there over a year ago and made me miss it so much that I’ve been booked a trip out there in the next few months.
I loved the skin post where you got the laser treatment. Before and afters are my jam!
International travel and the things to pack/not leave home without!
My love keeping up with Fish and Chips! I did dog fostering and ended up adopting my foster “child”. It was tough at first, but now she is the love of my life! My BF bought me a mug for Christmas that says “Who Rescued Who” and it’s so true!
My favorite was “going along with you” to Italy! I’ve always wanted to go there! Also, Tulum looked amazing and now I want to go there! Your travel is my favorite, but I really enjoy all your content to be honest.
Wow, a lot to have happened in 2017. Looking back to know that a long way has reached. And more exciting things to come in the 2018 year! ♥️????????♥️

Favorite post is def the international travel post!
All of your travel posts are amazing, especially the international travel…so it would be difficult to narrow down. They make me want to jump on the next plane I can and experience the world. 🙂
I actually really enjoyed your everyday smokey eye tutorial! And of course anything with pictures of the boys 🙂
I loved when you announced you were adopting Chips!
I love all of your travel posts and reading what to pack. I also love watching your Instagram stories while you were in London!!
So many good posts! I loved the decor one, and Tulum Travel Guide and also the international packing one!!
It is so hard to narrow down a favorite of yours! But I especially love your international travel! You are my go-to blogger when it comes to traveling tips and where to go so I always enjoy those! I recently loved your trip to Italy-it is next on my list!
When you got chips!! Hands down my favorite post last year!! I got tears of joy reading that post! I mean “Fish & Chips” totally meant to be. The Lord works in mysterious ways 🙂
I loved your international travel posts – great pics and fashion, the food!, the places you stayed. London looks amazing!
Would love to see more home & room decor. Love getting new ideas for my home/room
I loved your post when you introduced Chips!! He is just the cutest thing ever!
The Nordstrom fall sale try on haul!
I loved the post when you introduced us to Chips!
I absolutely loved the intro to Chips! Love seeing your sweet fur babies! 🙂
My favorite part was all your travel blog, I loved looking at all the photos and outfits! Can’t wait for more this year!
I love your post about Cancun. My husband and I trying to go there for our 1 year anniversary.
Top 5 Travel Destinations of 2017! (also any post featuring Fish and Chips 😉 )
I loved your travel guide to Italy! I miss being there and it brought back amazing memories as well as new outfit ideas and places to go for me. I am going to Italy in March and needed some outfit inspo. Love the blog!!
I loved the Italy posts! But my absolute favorite was the posts about Chips! ❤️
I loved your post about the laser treatment for sunspots, as this is a major concern with my skin as well! Thanks for that 🙂
I love this so much! My personal favorite post was the new years resolution one, and I’d love to see more lifestyle/healthy living posts.
http://trendkeeper.me .. thoughts on self-discipline!
I love all of your beauty product reviews! I appreciate your transparency and it all feels like very genuine feedback
Loved the living room reveal!
I liked the Nordstrom sale roundups, especially the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, because I like to see what they have discounted during each period.
It’s so hard to pick just one! The international travel guide had to be my favorite post of the year, because as a new international traveler it was SO helpful. I also loved the Friday Fives and all of the travel diaries. Lastly, I loved the LV neverfull handbag review. It helped me finally pull the trigger on such a beautiful bag!
My favorite blog post of 2017 was the 5 gifts you received that werent under the chrismas tree, and when you introduced Chips to us. They were both so personal and very lovely to read.
Favorite posts have to be all of your travel guides! Florence being my favorite. Looking forward to the rest of Italy travel guides. (My husband and i are planning to go to Italy next summer! So I’m starting to plan now)
My fav was the Nordstrom summer sale/fall preview…. loved reading and seeing try on hauls of items from this sale. So helpful!
I wait for your Nordstrom anniversary sale every year!! I love your inspiration so much, helps my shopping immensely.

New to the blog and love it but being form Canada find it it hard to shop the stuff you suggest.
So hard to just pick one post! I’ll have to say adopting chips was probably my favorite! The pictures were just too cute and I’m a dog lover! The living room tour and the moving/q+a were a close second!
I think the one that I used the most was the nsale roundup and Black Friday sale guides. They both always have such good deals but can be overwhelming to try to dig through all of the options so I was able to find some great pieces thanks to your posts! And I always love your travel guides (they inspire me to keep adding on to my bucket list)
I love ALL of your travel diaries, Nordstrom sale, and home reveal! =)
I loved any posts that you got a little more personal on! I’ve been following you since the begging (back when you were a nurse) and it was nice getting to know more about you after following you on insta and reading your blog for such a long time! Good luck in 2018 🙂
My favorite was when you adopted chips! The best story! 🙂
ummmmm ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!! How could I narrow it down to one?! Keep doing you, girlfriend. 🙂
ummmmm ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!!! How could I narrow it down to one?! Keep doing you, girlfriend. 🙂
I LOVED so many of them! Especially love the packing guides and gift guides- so incredibly thoughtful and helpful! I can’t tell you how much time it saved me knowing that you had tested, planned and put everything in one post!
My favorite post was your 5 favorite gifts that weren’t under the tree. I just felt like at that time of year with everything going on it really put things into perspective and I felt like I got to know you a little more!
I love your posts! I do love your travel ones. I don’t get to travel often but your posts inspire me to do so and I get to live vicariously through you! My husband and I actually just booked a trip to Fort Lauderdale with your sons for the spring. Do you have any advice for the area?
I loved any and all tutorials. Hair, makeup, even the try-on hauls. It’s one thing to see it done. It’s transforming to see it happen in real-time and makes it more approachable.
I enjoyed the International Packing guide. Packing guides for travel are always so helpful!
Loved the travel packing posts and Nordstrom sale review! Also just really loved your Canada travel post – the pics were amazing!
Your living room reveal and also your travel post about Santorini!
I’m excited to start a new year reading your posts. My favorite this year was the home decor because it was a refreshing change. But don’t get me wrong, I can’t get enough of the fashion posts.
I love Nordstrom Anniversary sale posts! And always love your travel posts, gives me such insights into where I want to visit!
I honestly love all of your posts and look forward to reading all of hem! If I had to pick 1 favorite post from last year, I’d pick the Santorini travel diary. I loved all your Greece posts! Chips’ intro post was also a favorite! It was so much fun to read, and I love how personal you get with your readers!
My favorite blog post this year was your Nordstrom one. I loved how candid you were and how you weren’t bombarding us as most other bloggers were. Your travel diaries are some of my favorite, I love your simple outfit ideas ones and of course skincare. Your skin is flawless and I’m so happy for you we’re able to transform it so well.
Love your Nordstrom Sale review posts…. the sale itself can be quite overwhelming so enlisting help is always comforting….
I love your inspiring travel posts! & realistic travel outfits (tennis shoes, not high heels)
It’s tough to pick one! I loved all the travel diaries but I think especially the ones throughout Italy and France. Italy would be a dream vacation and even more so now after reading your thoughts and seeing your pictures!
II love all of your travel posts, but especially London! I am moving there in 2 years and travel there pretty extensively for work. It is heartwarming to see someone love it as much as I do!
I really did love the Anniversary Sale try ons and honest opinions, but also love travel posts/photos/style!
We have to pick one?? I am not sure I can! I think my fave was you showing the Trevi fountain, when you went super early and somehow beat the crowds!
I loved the life updates and Q&As. It’s always so nice to know more about the person you’re reading posts from. Also, I really love the travel diaries. I get to add so many new places to my travel list 🙂
Love your blog! Thanks for the help with Nordstrom sale!
I’m a pediatric RN that loves to escape to far away places on my lunch break with your travel posts. By far my favorite posts are when you let us into your world by inviting us to share your travel experiences. The pictures of you travelling in Europe are breathtaking.
The nordstrom anniversary sale recap and at home try-on was the best! This sale can be overwhelming and your round-up was so helpful!!
Nordstrom anni sale!
My favorite thing this year was definitely all the travel posts with tips and advice
Loved the handbag comparison post!! And I always love following your travel adventures ????
I loved your hair tutorial even though that was one Facebook- can that still count?! Also the London travel guide was ON POINT!
I love your travel plans, pictures and your stories. Your home decor is so me (but I have a 12 year old son so I refrain myself from deoxrating too girly, except my bedroom!) I would truly like to see more of that. Also, your everyday living is nice to see you are just like all of us. Your travel recommendations were on point and so perfect for memory making travels. I shared it with my sister who’s Dominican, married to a French, her baby is AMCIT and lives in Mexico ???? . Keep sharing and we keep learning!
I love all your posts and always look forward to reading them! I really enjoy your travel and Instagram round up posts!!
I loved your post introducing Chips! Yay adoption and growing your family. 🙂
I love your posts, but my favorite was definitely the what to pack for international travel as I went to Europe only a couple months after your post and it was extremely helpful!
I LOVED your post on what to pack for international travel as I went to Europe only a couple months after your post and it was extremely helpful!
I loved the maxi dress in Santorini. The photos were absolutely stunning.
I’m taking my first overseas trip to London and Paris in March, so I’ve looked at your packing guide for international travel post….more times than I’m willing to admit.
LOVED all of your travel diaries– they are so detailed and thoughtful. The Florence guide was such a great resource before my trip. And all your N sale posts– those were SO helpful and I loved your honest reviews.
I loved your Italy travel post! So many beautiful pictures.
I absolutely love your Christmas gift guide posts, they are so helpful!
I just love all your posts. Your honesty and realness is just so refreshing. Your travel posts are my favorite though. I love living vicariously through you when you travel and when I have the ability to travel these have helped me narrow down all things to do. Thank you for all you do for us. Xoxo
Anything that had to do with Fish and Chips! They are the cutest brothers ever! I also really enjoy anytime you post about travel tips, whether it be clothes to pack for where you’re traveling, how to pack, etc!
It’s hard to choose one! I love all your travel posts, your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts and your home decor! And all your stories with Fish and Chips!
Honestly it’s a toss up amongst all your travel posts!! But I also liked how honest and forthright you were on the skin peel procedure post – even though I don’t think I’d ever have the guts to do anything like that it was interesting to read and see!
My favorite post(s) have to be the travel guides and the Nordstrom sale posts. I save the travel guides I like for later use when I plan my trips! I’m excited about your Lake Louise/Banff one!
Hi Alyson! Your laser treatment review was one of my favorite 2017 posts. It really kicked off my interest in skincare and I’ve since adopted a intensive skincare routine. I also LOVED your travel posts to Italy and Canada 🙂
I really appreciated your Nordstrom sale reviews! Good info and helped with some seriously hard decisions ????
I’m going to London next month. My first trip across the pond! Your travel tips helped a sister out so much! I just bought some comfy Nikes and grabbed portable chargers for my phone. 🙂
My favorite post was definitely your best of beauty round up for 2017! It was informative and I love hearing other people’s go to beauty products. Love following you and your travels!
Your Greece travel diary is the post that originally introduced me to your blog. In general I love your travel diaries, decorating posts, skin care posts, and also the Friday Five posts because they are so chalk full of great stories/products/insights. I’ve only been following you for a couple months but you’re one of my faves!
Nordstrom sale haul posts are always a fave! I also loved your Louis Vuitton Neverfull vs Goyard Handbag Review since I am hoping to invest in a Neverfull soon. 🙂
My favorite post was the one with the new year’s resolutions. I like posts when you speak about yourself and every time It amazes me how much we have in common besides a very similar wardrobe and handbags! We both are Pisces and I also lost a parent… and the list goes on and on. I hope we can meet some day, which we could have several times since I am from Strasbourg where I often go, I also live in Bavaria (we almost bumped into each other at the Neuschwanstein castle and in Füssen ; plus I live near Munich!) and I use to live and travel a lot accros the US. Maybe someday! I didn’t make any new year’s resolution but I decided one thing doing your survey, from now on I will make time to read every new post from your blog!
Gosh it’s honestly hard to pick a favorite post! I really enjoy all of them and look forward to reading them. Although, I do have to say my favorites are outfit/try-on/haul posts, especially for Nordstrom sales and your travel posts are great too! I love how detailed and helpful your posts are. Your pictures are always fun and pretty too! ????
It’s hard to pick just one! My favorite blog posts would definitely have to be the ones from when you went to London and Paris. My husband and I left for London a couple days after your “packing for London” post, and it definitely helped me make sure I was bringing the right stuff! I love following your travels and you inspire me to explore different countries in the future! I hope to see more of your adventures in 2018!
I love all your posts, but my favorite was your Greece travel guide! I feel like you captured so many wonderful places to visit that it really sparked my travel bug and I’m now pursuing it! :). “Travel is the only thing you can buy that makes you richer!”
I loved the home decor posts! You have a beautiful taste and sense of style. Also, really love your travel guides. I haven’t had the opportunity to visit any of these places, but when I do, I will have a look at them for advice!
That is such a hard question!!!! Do I really have to pick just one??!! lol I would probably go with your living room reveal. I was so excited to see what colors you used and what furniture you picked out. You did not disappoint! I loved everything!!
Your travel diaries are my favorite blog posts. It is hard to pick just one post, but my favorite of 2017 was probably Nice, France and French Riviera posts. The beach, striped umbrellas, and your white sundress and hat were Parisian chic perfection! Looking forward to 2018’s content!
My favorite post was hands down the things you need to pack for international travel! I’m studying abroad in greece this semester and I referenced it multiple times while I was packing and getting ready for my trip! I love all of your travel posts!
Your winter trip to Canada was by far my fave! The pictures were stunning, the dog sledding looked like it was super fun and I loved your cozy warm yet stylish outfit choices. We are going to Canada in 2019 because of this post, haha.
The home decor options post! I’m getting ready to move, but I’ve been looking at home decor for MONTHS!
It’s difficult to choose a fav post from 2017 because you shared SO much amazing and fresh content. I loved all the travel guides, outfit inspo, sale alerts, makeup/skincare/haircare and of course seeing more of fish and chips! ???????? (they’re too cute) But my verryyyy fav was your Nordstrom Anniversary saw picks! You hands down had the best (and cutest) deals picked out and I tried to get some of them! Love the Zella leggings and the cute booties and cardigan you shared! Anyways, looking forward to everything in 2018! All your travel has been sooooo interesting! If only I could fit in your suitcase! Haha ????
Caitlin ???? @caitash
My hands down favorite post was your Shopping Picks for Rome, Florence, and Venice! I’ve done that exact trip (and am going back to do it all over again) but when I went had no clue what to pack! Your posts about what to wear/pack when traveling internationally are the BEST. Thanks for sharing all your ideas and travel tips- you’ve helped me out so much!
My favorite was when you adopted Chips!????❤️
It’s so hard to choose! I love your Nordstrom anniversary sale picks and always love hearing about products you love that work for everyday life and “normal” people lol
So hard to pick just one but I thoroughly enjoyed the hair routine with the Lange products. The feature products were my number one Christmas request and luckily I received them! Have loved them
I loved seeing your “We’re Moving” post! I love how personal and relatable you are on your blog.
I loved your post on what to pack for international travel! Just because I want to travel internationally this year! All of your travel guides and posts are amazing!
I LIke the chic home decor post
Is it bad if I say my fave was the moving post because the picture of fish and chips in the box was the cutest thing ever!! In all real ness though I loved your coverage of the nsale this year!! From the home decor reveal to the top picks you really inspired me this year in my Nordys buying!
Definitely the must have travel items! Those are always helpful to see if I’m missing anything while I’m packing.
I loved all the product review post; everything from the spring shoe review, purse reviews and clothing hauls!
Your travel blogs are everything! So many of us are unable to, for whatever reason, travel as often as you are. It’s nice to be able to “travel along” with you and explore all the amazing places you go! Your fashion post are realistic and I feel so many people can recreate your looks at an affordable dime. And of course fish and chips! As a dog mama I love seeing them interact on your IG stories and post. Your blog overall is very personable and inspiring and reading everything you write is always enjoyable.
It’s so so hard to decide what my favorite blog post is between all the home decor and the travel (two of my favorite things) but I would have to say I’m dying to go to Positano and your post about it made me decide I definitely want to make that a trip this year!
My favorite blog posts are The Friday Five and of course when you introduced Chips to the family!!
So I am 100% obsessed with all of your travel guides. As a detailed obsessed traveler, I have truly found these invaluable. You really give good feedback and fully explain everything. I love your London restaurant guide– it totally helped me on my trip! Can’t wait to see more travel guides (as well as fashion posts) in the future!!
I really loved 2. Your candid self with your laser treatments is when I “found” you and thought I kinda love this girl. The ither was your Greece trip.
Loved your skin care blog about your laser treatment!!
I truly love all that you cover. I’d say you are one of the few we’ll rounded blogs that covers everything. Keep up the good work!
My favorite post by far was the picoway laser post! It was really in-depth and informative. I love that you included up close pictures. I’d love to get an update to see how your skin did months later.
I loved your adoption post with chips, it warmed my heart and made me an even bigger fan of yours lady! I also love the home decor posts you do:) thank you for all your hard work and dedication.
I love the travel info/guides!! I got tons of great tips for my travels. Thanks!! 😉
I Love all your posts on home decor especially since you moved this year. Your home is SO cute and I used to live in your previous apartment complex (years ago) so I really loved seeing how you decorated the space. You did SUCH a better job than my roommate and I did at the time!
Anything Fish and Chips!! Seriously your Christmas was stunning… Travel was amazing!! Just waiting to see more. Thanks for all the time and energy to inspire us to want to travel and try different things.
Definitely loved the what to pack for travel!!
Loved the hair tutorial and the chic decor post.
I am completely biased since I am Canadian, but your trip to Banff was my favorite!
Anything travel related. Every single trip you take is a dream trip to me and seems perfect. I love all the tips and to see things you’ve done!
My favorite post was the Paris post! I’ve always dreamed of going there and your pictures were gorgeous!!
Okay so, for me I appreciated the Fall eyeshadow Makeup paler tutorial. You also did a tutorial/live on IG from your bathroom, I watched the whole thing which for me says a something, I squirrel easily. Purchased new foundation and an applicator brush from your recommendation. Thanks. Btw, anytime your dogs are on I Love Them!! But I originally started looking at your blog for your fashion. ????????????
“I SQUIRREL EASILY” hahahahahahha omg I’m dying!! This made me laugh so hard! Thank you for your comment and for making me laugh! Happy to hear the tutorial helped ya! 🙂
I loved the post on your recommendations in London since I went there right after you and it helped give some structure to my trip!
Hard to pick just one post but if I have to I’d say your Miami post! I’ve always wanted to go to Miami and loved your hotel and beautiful pictures! I live in North Dakota so the big boldcolors and the pool and sun …. oh yes I want to get some friends together and go there!!! ????☀️⛱????
The sales reviews and all things travel.
I really like all your roundups in case I missed anything! Honestly love your casual style and find myself spending smite time on the majority of your posts vs. others I follow because they’re relatable and within reach for any budget.
My favourite posts are always your Instagram roundups as I most follow you on there. I really enjoy all of your content as you can tell its authentic and real. Working in social media myself, there is a LOT of content out there that just doesn’t feel like it has a purpose, and yours definitely does.
Thanks for sharing such awesome ideas and your heart with all of your followers.
I love the travel and lifestyle posts! I would like to see more travel posts, especially in the US. Maybe something like weekend getaways? Love your site!
You have great style so I love decor posts. But I think my favorite posts are travel posts!
My favorite post would have to be the one about y’all moving! I just remember scrolling through Insta and seeing Fish and Chips in the moving boxes and thinking nothing could be cuter! And your subsequent home decor posts since you moved, organization tips, puppy tug of war on insta stories, and seriously LOOOOVED your Christmas decor! Literally went and bought a gold glittery nutcracker after I saw your adorable pink one! ????
I loved your international travel must haves! I have it bookmarked because I am getting ready for an international trip and find it to be a good reference!
Loved seeing your Fish and Chips posts as well as all of your home decor posts, especially the living room! I plan to purchase the couch eventually! But, all of your photos are beautiful and you never have a bad post! Thanks! 🙂
Loved your post about the picoway treatment. I never even knew this was a thing and have now been researching it for myself!!
Love your recommendations from the NSale and following you on your travels!
Hard to pick but probably the Italy posts since I went to Italy the next month after you !!
My favorite posts are the travel ones!! I mostly follow you on Instagram but your travel posts always lure me in!! You go to the prettiest places and i have started a list of places i MUST go thanks to where you have been and showed us. Thanks for taking us with you and being so fashionable and yourself while doing it!
I love being able to see the world and all of your experiences, with you! I get so excited anytime you are somewhere new and exciting and I always look forward to seeing your Instagram stories on where you’ve been or what you’ve done that day! Love you and what you’re doing girl????
I remember a few years back when I started following you, you’re blog was basically fashion and it’s refreshing to see you evolve through out the years. I love fashion but for some reason I feel like we’re decorating soul sisters lol. If my hubby would let me get away with all the pink and girly furniture pieces you’ve shared, I would buy them ALL.
Obviously anything to do with Fish + Chips ???? But specifically my favorite post was your Christmas Home Decor post. I love your style (even bought the same grey/cream rug as you) and last year I bought your blue pineapple pillows you sold on your Instagram page! Everything you choose to put in your home is so light and airy.. I love it! ????
Love seeing your travels (food diaries are my favorite). I would love to see more dressing room diaries like try on sessions at Nordstrom ?? I love
Seeing how clothes fit and since we don’t have one I’m Tulsa that could be helpful! I also love
Seeing real life stuff with your boys! It’s nice to know I’m not the only one not put together 24/7! Keep up the good work girl! XO
*your* omg this darn auto correct that doesn’t correct ????????
Absolutely love all your posts however, I do enjoy when you share where you travel to. Especially seeing the outfits that are most suitable for the destination.
Love love loved your skincare journey with the laser treatments! I’ve had discoloration since I was 12 years old and never thought there was an option out there to correct it. I also loved your home reveal! Your living space is so so lovely in your new home and I adore how you style your spaces!!! Thanks for sharing with us!
While it’s very difficult to choose a favorite post this past year, I would say my favorite was actually the 31 facts about you. It was nice to get to know you a little better.
Love the 10 MUST-HAVE PACKING ITEMS FOR INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL post – all your travel tips are so helpful!
I’ll be honest I love most of your posts because I find them very relatable and have recently been looking forward to your travel posts because I find them very useful from housing, food recommendations and tips. My most fav post has to be of your trip to london. I grew up in England and moved here so when I see your London posts and stories it reminds me so much of back home and makes me so happy
Your Nordstrom Sale post was my favorite! I use that time to make some big clothes purchases. And it was nice to have you opinion on a lot of the pieces considering I don’t live near a nordstrom!
Congrats on an awesome year of posts! I loved your posts from France and packing lists! Those posts are super helpful especially when trying to pack for different seasons. Having great inspiration helps me think outside the box of what I should bring with me for future trips! They also inspire me to get on top of booking some trips for this year!
I enjoyed reading about your laser treatment. I found you while you were going through it. I was so intrigued with the process and then fell in love with you and your blog after that!!
I love your home decor/ home style! Your chic him decor post was my favorite!
Loved all the travel posts! Made me want to hop on a plane and just go! And loved all the outfits on the trips! Anything fish and chips! They are so cute!! Thank you for all of your content you put out! Shows a lot of thought and love
My favorite post this year has got to be your winter trip to Canada ???????? you and Whitt Whitt always have such a hood time together.
I love reading all your travel guides on where to go, what to pack! Traveling can be tricky, but your trips and tricks have proven very helpful!
You have such a cute style and great recommendations for clothes! My favorite thing from this past year is the travel guide info!
I really loved your post about adopting Chips!
I love your travel diaries!
My favorite posts were definitely the Canada travel diary you recently posted and the London neighborhood guide to restaurants! They were so useful and well written. I actually saved them in “bucket list spreadsheet” to reference back to when I start my planning phase for these trips.
Thankyou for your smart well-written articles that are helpful and entertaining! my favorite would be all the travel blogs especially this last road trip through Canada! best of luck in 2018!
My favorite post was definitely the Nordstrom sale review! I loved seeing all the items you chose and seeing how you would style them. It was really helpful for me to see them paired with other things, as well as reading your opinion on the sizing in case I decided to purchase something!
Living room reveal!!????????????
My favorite post had to be the travel diary for Santorini, Greece. I am trying to plan a trip there and your post gave so much knowledge to the history of Santorini as well as places to visit and details about things to do!! Loved it! Can’t wait to see your adventures in 2018!!
Loved your Italy and Greece guides, especially the ones from the Amalfi Coast areas and the Greek Isles. Also loved your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post, i ordered a few things which was my first time ever buying something via a bloggers link (you always remember your first time! ????)
I loved your living room reveal post!!! Your design and style are perfection.
I love to follow posts on fish and chips! They are so cute. But I also really like the fashion posts and often shop your looks.
I love your travel diaries and sale finds!! I honestly also love how you interact on Instagram!!
I really loved you documenting you experience with the laser…especillay how you got the doc to comment on your insta stories! As a reader in her thirties, and a lot of bloggers who are waaaay younger than me, it’s nice to read about some of the skin care/procedures I’m interested in!
I truly love all of the posts and inspiration you share with us, as well as the adorable insta stories of Fish and Chips! 🙂 I think my favorite posts from this year we’re the Nordstrom anniversary sale posts, the chic home decor, and I love watching any type of makeup tutorial you do! Thank you so much for sharing you positive energy and amazing style with us! ????
Love all your travel posts and your cute outfits! Your adventures in Austria were fun to follow along in InstaStories. Seeing the Sound of Music locations made me smile and think of all the times I’ve watched that movie with my girls when they were little. And your bravado when you ignored the sign on the bridge. Lol ????
I loved your post on finding a formal dress with varying price points! The picture is of you in front of the Eiffel Tower. I was needing to find the perfect dress for a special occasion and you gave me some great ideas!
I love the top 10 Beauty products. 🙂
Do I really just have to pick one??? Ahhhh, I just can’t lol!!! I love them ALL. I would have to say my all time favorite ones are your travel diaries. I swear everywhere you go it ends up on my bucket list. I truly love reading each and every single one of them though. Xo
I really love your travel diaries! Looooooved the trip to Italy/Greece! Europe has my ❤️
As I said in my survey, I think my favorite post you did this year if of you in the burgundy Dress the Population dress. I absolutely love that dress and think it’s so elegant. Paris has also always been a dream destination. ☺️♥️ I believe I gravitate to most of your travel posts because I work in the photography business and everything you post of your locations is breath taking. ????
I love the Nordstrom Anniversary sale review / try on.
Fave post was about the skincare procedure. I’ve got CMA on my eye this year because of that post!
I love your Instagram Roundup posts and any home decor posts.
I love following along with all of your travels!
Love the Santorini Guide and can’t wait to visit there this summer! Thanks for all of the great recommendations!
I loved the 25 chic home decor items, but also the try on posts ????
All of your travel posts are great but I particularly liked your Italy posts as they were a reference when I planned my trip to Rome at the holidays!!
Definitely the Nordstrom Sale try on & review!!
Loved your living room reveal and your travel guides!
Hands down the London posts. The images and Instagram postings made that city so much more magical to me. Totally increased my desire to visit London; which lead to my bestie and I going there as well as Scotland in 2019.
All your posts are great. But London is hands down my fav.
I love all your skin care and decor posts. It’s hard to choose! I’d say skin care. Loved you for letting us in on your laser treatment!
I enjoyed most your most have packing guide- as I girl that wants to do more traveling I definitely pinned that for future reference
Love the Friday Five!
l enjoyed the post with the London restaurant guide where it was broken down by neighborhood. I’ll be going to London in October and will definitely reference the post!
My favorite post was your “need to know” for international travel. I’m planning a 2 week trip to Italy this year and all your tips and tricks have been super helpful in the planning process!
Love your blog!
My favorite post was your “need to know” for international travel. I’m planning a 2 week trip to Italy this year and all your tips and tricks have been super helpful in the planning process!
Love your blog!
I’ve visited many countries in Europe but never Greece! After seeing your Santorini post and reading the fun facts, I knew it was someplace I had to go. Your travel posts inspire me to keep exploring and never get too comfortable with my surroundings because there are so many beautiful places to see!
Your Canada posts added a few new cities on my bucket list!
Nordstrom sale & Travel Guides (London & Paris)
All of your scary podcast recommendations!! They get me through my morning/evening commute and I love your feedback on the ones you’ve listened to. Definitely going to be into more podcasts in 2018 because I’m planning some trips to Europe and I feel like they’re great for travel!
I love your general life updates, faith posts, and skincare posts! I finally ordered my TULA discovery kit after seeing your post months ago and continued use of their products. xx
I absolutely love every travel diary you do! I follow a ton of bloggers but you are the only one I read for this purpose! Love yA
Mexico travel guide by far!!! <3
The fact that you put the time and effort into seeking what your readers and I’ll even say fans want separates you from the rest and is why I follow you more than anyone else. I love that you’re original and creative with your content. I’d LOVE to see more Fish & Chips!! I think they should be guest bloggers in a “Day in the life of Fish” and one for Chips too
Gosh so many to choose from.. NSale, life updates like moving and Chips adoption, and any travel blogs!
I love your try on haul posts! You give such honesty feedback and opinions on pieces (runs big, recommending another item in its place, lower quality).. it’s nice to hear the truth instead of being told everything is amazing in hopes we purchase for your profit. Plus, you always have great finds that I want to incorporate into my wardrobe so it’s a good way to learn about what’s out there.
Def the “Chips Announcement”! The shoot was so cute and I was genuinely so excited about you and Fish welcoming another pup into your home!!!
Hey there! I don’t have any particular favorite, I love them all. Mostly though, I just enjoy catching the latest fashion and seeing the world vicariously through you. Hopefully one day, I can travel just as much. The field I’m in (advertising) makes finding stable work hard, so sometimes I feel caught in a freelance trap. I was thinking about this. The world really doesn’t reward opportunity for talent. I’d love to become self sufficient, be my own boss, and give blogging a shot. Maybe you can do a post on that sort of defining moment where you stopped what you were doing and starting blogging. I’ve only been following about 3-4 months. Most of the other bloggers out there tend to get overly annoying or it starts to feel like they just get hand outs/live off their husbands money. You don’t seem like that type at all! I’m a single; I was curious to know if you are too?
I’m done rambling; just stopping by and showing some love!
Definitely the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale roundup! It helped me decide which things to try and what to grab early before they sold out! Only 6 more months until the next one 🙂
Your adoption post about chips! I also liked your Facebook live hair tutorial!
Oops! Instagram live 🙂
I need this couch! ugh. I love your Tulum guide
I loved your post on your trip to Banff! It is still one of my most favorite vacations, and you inspired me to want to go back this year! Hopefully when it is a winter wonderland 🙂
I loved your living room reveal! It has given me so much inspiration as well as different sites to check out for the living room that I’m currently redoing!
I always love your NSale posts because of how well they are put together in terms of how you describe fit and quality. We are totally different body types but your description of outfits is always super helpful. I also love all your personal life updates, especially the pups!
I love all of your posts and the variety of content you cover! I especially loved your adoption post on Chip!!
I loved your “what you travel with” post! I always have trouble with that!
Your nsale post for sure! It’s easy to follow and a great resource to see the actual pieces before buying. Also always love anything you write about faith!
Laser treatment and personal posts were my fav!
My favorite post from 2017 was the Laser treatment. I just introduced your blog to a coworker the other day and showed her the post about the laser treatment. Can’t tell you enough how much that has influenced me to move in the direction for long term care for my skin.
I loved your 2017 Travel Review post. I love to travel and to follow along on your adventures has been so fun and so inspiring!! Can’t wait to see where 2018 takes you!
I always II always love to read your Friday 5 posts!
I LOVE the Chips story I even read it out loud to my husband!
Nordstrom sale round up, gift guides, and hair tutorial!
Your Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Product Review was incredibly helpful! Definitely one of my favorites!!! Appreciate all you do!
Love your real life updates and clothes try on sessions.
Your Paris post. ❤️
Love the living room reveal!!
My favorite part is seeing your travel guides! On insta stories I also love when Fish and Chips are in it 🙂
I love your genuine life posts about YOU and your pups!
I LOVED your formal wear post from Paris! It was amazing!
Loved the designer bag post. It helped me really decide that i needed the LV Neverfull!
I love all your travel guides but loved your tulum post the most
Your travel posts are my favorite!
Real life! Scoring tickets to Hamilton and of course always Fish & Chips!
I loved your 10 beauty products of the year post! Really cool to see which rose to the top over the whole year. 🙂
The Home Decor Living Room Reveal. My place is just a mess of everything and seeing what you have done with your place has given me some serious inspiration! I still have a long way to go but this post definitely lit the spark on getting better with my home decor skills.
All of your content is amazing, but to be very honest, I’d follow you just for your interaction with your dogs ????????
My fav posts by far were the Nordstrom sale posts and the post about your laser treatments! Would love a follow up to that!!
I loved ALL of your travel diaries!! You inspire me so much to get out of my comfort zone and do something I have never done before.
My favorite posts are your life updates – esp the laser skincare process!
Nordstrom Sale post! Plus all your beautiful travel photos give me inspiration!!
Chips! And the living room reveal…and try on hauls!
I LOVED all your travel posts. Especially the 10 important items for international travel! I made my first trip to Europe in September and basically just bought everything you said to get ???? but every little thing was SO helpful!!
Of course anything fashion related i am all about! I loved your podcast post! I started listening to a bunch of the ones you suggested and they are amazing! I love the travel ones because it helps when planning trips in the future!
I love your personal life updates as well as anything puppy related ???????? oh and I love your style!
I can’t pick….dont’ make me pick 🙂 lol I love the hauls, I love the personal posts, I love the recommendations in your travel posts!!!
I really like your insta stories. I really love try on hauls also!
I can’t pick just one! I love and am so thankful for your travel content! It has been so helpful to me in my own travels! Love how you share about recommendations for restaurants, site-seeing, but also about “hacks” like electrical outlet info for different places you visit.. stuff like that that I probably wouldn’t think of but is so helpful!
Forgot to share in the surgery, but I’d also love recommendations on devotionals! Quick daily reads, longer and more involved studies, books, etc 🙂
So many amazing posts but my fav was probably your Living Room Reveal!!
Nordstrom sale ????
I love travel ANYTHING!!! Tulum guide was my favorite for sure!
Love the chic home decor blog post!
My favorite thing was home decor during your move. I was moving around the same time and got tons of inspirations from the blog. I also love the travel diaries! Makes my heart go off daydreaming of the places I want to go!
My favourite post was probably “5 things I’m grateful for this Christmas”! I love reading posts like that that are meaningful and heartfelt, and it inspired me to look for gratitude in my own life amid the craziness of the season. 🙂
I love seeing post about your everyday life and the doggies!!
The skincare/laser post! I was so intrigued and I had no idea the days after a laser could look like that. I also loved when you showed us BTS of the hurricanes. Yes it was so tragic, but neat (for someone who doesn’t see hurricanes) to see a more personal perspective on how it was affecting you. Also, show off those cute little pups! Love all your content!!
My favorite posts are your packing guides!
100% the Florence post. It is my
Ultimate dream to visit Italy and that post was amazing. If anyone has any tips to get rid of an extreme fear of flying, I’m all ears.
I love all your posts, but the travel posts (especially the posts on Italy and international traveling essentials) are my fave! I am sure I will refer back to them this year as I am traveling to Italy this summer!
I loved hearing about Chips and his story. I cried. I loved hearing about how he and fish clicked!
My fave blog post was the one visiting Canada that you just posted! WINTER TRIP TO CANADA is what it was called because I’m Canadian! Ps. Your blog is awesome. Keep up the fab work!
I love all of the posts you do when your traveling! I’m sure it’s really difficult and hard to get them all done, but I really appreciate them!!! I love seeing all the pictures of the places you’ve been and the beauty of what God has created all around the world!
Loved so many… probably a top pickwas the Nordstrom anniversary sale round up!
Loved the recap of your trip to Europe and what you packed! Also the updates on the laser treatment was awesome!
My favorite story was definitely about when you got Chips! I cried. I loved hearing how he and Fish clicked!
I loved your posts about London. I also enjoyed seeing all of your European adventures!
I loved your Paris post! Made me really want to go back with my husband. I’ve been asking so much more frequently because of it. Lol! Also, I know it wasn’t a post but I loved seeing that you got to see Hamilton in London! Serious obsession of mine and I was so excited for you!
Life update posts. Fish and chips (always). Home decor!!!! Favorite blogger because you’re real and truly care about your followers!
I love your fashion and devotional content! But travel has to be my favorite. I love getting to live I vicariously through your amazing travel experiences. I’m finally getting the chance to travel this year with my fiancé and your tips have been extremely helpful as we’ve started planning!
I loved so many posts! But I loved the post on comparing designer handbags. I haven’t been able to purchase one yet but I found it so helpful and I know I’ll reference it when the time comes!! xx
I love them all!!! ????
The makeup tutorials were a HUGE help! I love interior decorating so make up and clothes help is always needed!
The top 10 things to bring when traveling internationally and the best places to eat in London based on area were my favorite. The past few years my love to travel has grown and these articles were so helpful. Looking forward to more travel content 🙂
I love the 10 travel items post! It’s taken me 30 years but I think I finally know how to pack and not arrive at my location with 300 pieces of clothing and nothing to wear. I also love all the little gadgets and gear they keep you so organized! Absolutely genius
I loved hearing your story about Chips! I cried.
Definitely the LV vs Goyard handbag review!! I want to eventually invest in a high-end luxury bag, so this was great!
Favorite post would be home decor. Def!! I mean honestly anything with fish and chips lol …but otherwise – the home decor one 🙂
I love anything with Fish and Chips! I also loved your travel guide of Bermuda. We went there on our honeymoon and it was fun to look at pictures and reminisce!
Fashion and beauty tips, travel diaries especially to Greece, London, Paris, and Austria, Christmas decor, also hurricane surviving tips, daily lifestyle with Fish & Chips.
Love the travel posts. Such good inspiration. And Fish and Chips ????
It’s so nice to see how much you care about what your readers want! I think some of my favorite posts of your would be your tutorials or your travel diaries!! I love getting to adventure around the world with you!
I’ve been following your blog for a while now and I have to say you inspire me- to travel, to be myself, and explore other options out there. I think that my favorite post has to be about your laser treatment. I have a couple of imperfections on my face that I’m so self conscious of. But you were so open, it has inspired me to be myself. So thank you !
A favorite of mine was the top 5 travel destinations of 2017!
Loved your Mexico tips! It really helped me on my trip there for my sister in laws wedding!
I love all your posts! If I had to pick I loved your holiday posts! From presents to decor! Helped me out so much this holiday season for my family and friends! Thank you! ????
I honestly love every post from sequins and things but I have to say… My favorite post is the Nordstrom Anniversary sale favorites! It’s so hard to look through ALL their sales and you simplify it and make it so easy because everything you post I love and I know I wouldn’t have been able to find those pieces on the Nordstrom app or walking into the store on my own so THANK YOU!
Absolutely love your post about adopting Chips! As a dog mama myself it really hit home. In the past my sister and I have actively fostered and adopted as well so I loved hearing your story. I’m a fashion inspo junkie so I love all of the outfit posts and slaw roundups. Also, gift guides in December are always extremely helpful!
I loved reading about your mini trips you took here in the states. Where you stayed, what restaurants you visited and what you did. So helpful because it gives me an idea on where to visit if I want to get away for a few days!
I loved when you redecorated your home and did the post on that! It inspired me to redecorate my home! 🙂
Loved your posts when you visited Austria. It’s been on my travel list but your posts and stories really highlighted the charm and new reasons to visit. Thanks again.
I loved the N-Sale posts!!!
I love all your travel posts, especially the ones on tips and ideas for international travel. I traveled to Central America this year, and some of your suggestions made me so much more confident in what I was doing! All your adventures have inspired me to take a trip to London this summer! I can’t wait!
I loved a ton of your travel posts… but I found the Goyard vs LV post the most useful. I’ve always debated between the two, and it helped me make a final decision on a purchase!
I love every and any post having to do with F&C but I really liked the laser treatment post!
Any blog with those cute little weiners! I love seeing your daily living with your babies, plus your home is gorgeous!
Anything and everything Nordstrom!
Best of travel in 2017!
I loved your Nordstrom sale posts and links, your trip to Paris, trip to London, and the home decor post on your old apartment and the new home. Can’t wait to see what you do in 2018! Xoxo – lisa
I really loved how raw and real the laser treatment posts and progress was! It was a brave thing to do and to share. But my favorite post was all the Nordstrom sales because you kept updating it constantly and gave us new information so fast nd so many great options and always let us know when things were restocked. I know that isn’t easy so thank you because it helped and is appreciated!
I appreciate your instagram roundup posts. It’s so easy to look back and shop the items I may have seen but didn’t get a chance to purchase! Thanks for all you do! Xoxo
I love all of your blog posts, but especially your trip to Italy, and any time you are in London (I lived there for a year)! I can’t wait to see where you are off to next! Xo
First of all, I love your blog and Instagram! I look forward to every post from you 🙂 You have such a great personality on how you treat your followers and how reflected you are and just rock your blogging life 🙂 I absolutely loved your livingroom reveal!

I absolutely loved all the post about Paria. The pictures you took and the outfits you worn were super pretty. I loved every single one of them. Absolutely looking forward to layout post in 2018.
Best of travel 2017!
I love your travel diaries but your post about your travel necessities when flying internationally SAVED me when my husband and I were moving to Europe and stuck living out of suitcases for 3 months!
My favorite post was you telling us you were getting Chips!!! And your family photos!!! So cute!!!!
I love your laser treatment post. It was so informative and helpful for something I have been looking into. Thank you so much!
I absolutely loved the LV v Goyard comparison post, your Paris trip! Xx
I liked your top travel of 2017 post and your summer weddings post (always hard to decide what to wear to those!)!
Hard to pick a favorite — your travel posts are AWESOME. Also the “what to pack” is so informative. Thank you for being a go-to for all kinds of inspiration! xo

I really do enjoy all your content, but your travel guides are you uniquely you they have to be my favorites!
I LOVE your blog in general but really love your home posts and your trips! The way you document all of the details is super helpful and inspiring 🙂
All of your travel posts. I truly love to travel and look to bloggers like you to share your insight on places you’ve visited. I love your recent post on Banff. It’s on my bucket list.
I love your home decor posts!
I honestly love it all! It’s all encompassing and the content flows together… what to wear, what to wear when I travel, plus where to travel! I have saved so many of your posts for my upcoming summer trip to Europe so I can be stylish and efficient ☺️ Then, when I’m home, it inspires me to decorate and look at my space!
I loved the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale post. I loved seeing you try them on and actually seeing them in real life.
It’s so hard to choose just one favorite but I loved your home decor post! I always love seeing how people style things in their home. A second runner up is the try-on haul for Nordstrom. I always love hearing feedback and seeing the fit of items I’m considering purchasing.
Thanks for all your hard work on the blog! 🙂
I love the travel and holiday posts!!
I love the travel and holiday posts!!
My favorite posts are anything to do with travel, like the guides, fav places, and must-haves to pack as well as room reveals and outfits!! (plus anything with fish and chips!!)
For sure your travel diaries and anything skincare related! You are so authentic and I love that since it is so rare these days! Thanks for being a gem in the not so bright world of social media!
I love how real you were/are about your skin and the laser treatment/process. You look AMAZING!
I liked your nordstrom anniv sale review! Esp love try on hauls or outfit suggestions that youve posted! I suck at creating cute outfits and your posts inspire me!!
Loved the post you did on the facial. Now I just need to do my research and find someone reputable in my area!
One of my favorites was learning about your daily skincare routine (which I guess is from 2016 but I only found it this past year!). It’s so helpful to get tips on how to deal with the same skin issues I still struggle with.
Loved your laser treatment post and how detailed it was. The transformation was amazing! I would love to do it one day after seeing the results!
It’s so hard to choose just one favorite but I loved your home decor post! I always love seeing how people style things in their home. A second runner up is the try-on haul for Nordstrom. I always love hearing feedback and seeing the fit of items I’m considering purchasing.
Thanks for all your hard work on the blog! 🙂
So many good ones but I love your what to pack post!! I am a terrible packer, I always pack things I never need and end up forgetting something I definitely should have brought!!
My favorite was your take on your favorite items of the Nordstrom anniversary sale. I bought several things that you mentioned!! It saved me a lot of time filtering through all of the stuff they had on sale. It was awesome!
Anything cute and simple from Nordstrom and Abercrombie tend to be my favorite posts. I also LOVE that you’re from FL (I’m in Orlando) and post outfits that work in our weather. It’s so hard to find cute outfits that work in our summertime so having someone that gets it is a real life saver 🙂
You post about travel items to pack! It has helped me plan for trip to Australia!
Nordstrom sales so I don’t have to spend hours getting the info you arlready got.
My favorite was the packing list for international travel, so helpful!!
Any and all of your travel diaries!
I think my favorite was the laser treatment post. Obviously the N sale, I think anyone that follows you has to love clothes! (And it’s so great when you do a try-on haul for quality and fit opinions!) Always love the travel posts too! (I followed your Canada trip on Instagram like a stalker!)
Do I have to choose just 1?! I truly love all of your posts and find them very informative and helpful… I think my favorite has been the Nordstrom Sale post because that sale is SO overwhelming and having a guide makes it a bit easier ;). I also LIVE for your Instagram live posts! I think they’re so fun and definitely helpful in finding new products to try!
I love travel guides! I really enjoyed the one about packing for international travel. I actually looked at that before I packed for my trip!
My favorite was any kind of review! Whether it was a designer handbag, beauty product or even a location you traveled to! Information is always a powerful tool! Also, any fish & chips posts are fun too 🙂
I love your NSale roundup! I love to see the best deals before they sell out! I also loved your post on Louis Vuitton v Goyard – even though I still want both! Thanks for sharing all your stories!
My favorite posts have been all of your international travel packing guides! You have really inspired me to get out and see the world!!
The nordstrom sale posts are so helpful! I love the faith based posts too!
Love your Nordstrom sales post and travel tips!
I loved your holiday gift guide for the jet setter. I think travel “essentials” can really make or break how comfortable you feel on a trip and make all the difference. I would love to see a post on travel photography like you mentioned after your most recent trip! I just started purchasing items like an iPhone tripod, iPhone lens, etc. and have been looking for the perfect travel camera that is still easy to carry. Thanks for sharing such great tips!
I love the N Sale guides and reviews. That sale is so overwhelming that it is awesome to be able to go to one place for a summary of what is best!
I love the living room post! We recently moved, so that gave me some fun inspiration for our new place!
Loved that striped to peplum top from the Positano post! Also, have you tried Maelove sunscreen? Thanks!
I loved your living room reveal. I hope you do them in your new place. I love seeing how other people style their homes!
My favourite post was the summary of your worldly travels! I love living vicariously through you and love watching your adventures unfold!!
Your Christmas revel of your living room, with all your decorations up! It was so pretty and gave me lots of ideas haha! 🙂 thank you for all that you do
Loved the living room decor the best!!! Xo
I enjoy all your post but probably loved your living room reveal the most! 🙂
I was not surprised about the goyard vs. lv comparison post. I used to decide about my neverfull!
I loved all of your travel blogs, but my favorite one was places to eat in London. I love food and reading about places to eat. I also love London and I can’t wait to try some of your suggestions when I go back.
I loved your Paris and London posts! And stateside the little Mayflower Inn in CT looks amazing! I can’t wait to see more travel guides in 2018 ????✈️
I love anything travel-related! You’re my “go to” blog for trip planning! Thanks for all you do!
I don’t have one post in particular, but my favorites are always the travel guides/diaries, and the Nordstrom sale posts.
I loves the London posts and the Tulum post. I am dying to go to Tulum!!
I absolutely loved the packing list and travel blog for Santorini, Greece. My husband and I would love to visit there, it looks so beautiful! I also stress and get overwhelmed by packing for longer trips, so I always find your packing list posts, super helpful! Love!!
The Tulum post!! I bookmarked it and referenced while we were there! I felt like you were the best to get referrals from 😉
My favorite posts are your travel guides, which I have been using to plan my own 2018 Europe trip with my husband, and your Nordstrom Anniversary Round Up- which I honestly use to make a lot of my own purchases during the sale. I save up and look forward to the sale all year, so I want to spend my money on things that are versitile and can transition from one season to the next. Your posts are helpful to weed through the thousands of products!
Maybe it’s silly but I la la LOVED your “NESPRESSO COFFEE + ESPRESSO MAKER REVIEW” post. My machine died a day before so it was timely! Enjoying a cup from mine as I type.
I think the most that was most helpful for me was your Nordstrom anniversary sale picks. I actually use to work at Nordstrom at EVERY YEAR I get overwhelmed by the sale because I just want everything! Since my style aligns so well with yours, I loved being able to go to your post feeling stress free, also knowing that someone I really trusted had picked out their favorites. It almost felt like having a personal stylist! How cool is that?
When you have a blog that basically creates your itinerary for you, that’s when you know its gooooddddd! That’s what your Nice itinerary did for my friend and I when we went. We were so inspired and informed it really made our trip to the French Riviera a breeze (ha-ha, beach breezes anyone?). I love reading your posts and watching your stories! Keep up the hard work, we’re listening and watching ????
Hhaha, I was a little jealous of anyone using it to plan a trip to Nice because it literally did give you EVERYTHING you needed in regard to what to do and see in the area 😉 Wish I had spent more time there! One day! 🙂
My favorite S&T posts were the travel guides! I think I love them because they combine fashion, food and beautiful places. They are just fun! I know it’s super hard work to keep up with what you do, what you pack, where you go, etc. while travelling, but I appreciate you putting in the work to make them such great resources for us! I’m excited to see what’s coming in 2018!
My favorite post for 2017 was 10 Things to Pack For a Fall Trip to London! I went to London in April for our one year anniversary & completely fell in love & would definitely want to go back. Anything that helps me pack for a trip is very helpful!
It’s hard to pick but I love your travel posts and NSale posts a lot. Your Nsale posts save me so much time and I really trust your picks!
My favorite posts of yours are the travel guides especially the one to Venice Italy as it has been so useful in helping me plan my trip soon. The amount of work you put into your posts is amazing and I am steady watching and learning. I also love your instagram stories and outfits. Cheers to an even greater year babe!
My Fashion Musings
My favorite post was the home decor update after your move but I’m going to be honest I really love seeing anything about Fish and Chips. Those little boys just put a smile to my face whenever I see them on my feed or in your stories ????
My fav was the living room reveal 🙂
I love a lot of your posts but my favorite are the sale roundups. I can tell you take pride in your work and you carefully choose each and every item!
I love FRIDAY FIVE! Condensed, on point, and easy to save and BUY the items. Thank you!
It’s hard to pick a favorite but one that stands out is your home decor! I remember I even went and bought a tissue box for my living room and I seriously do think it makes the room so much cozier like you said!! ????????
My favorite posts are about lifestyle and just style in general. Your outfits are always so spot on and many of the outfits you’ve posted, I’ve immediately bought myself! I also love how honest you are in each of your posts, especially about eating terrible. I’m the same way!
My favorite was your Florence travel diary – I was going there shortly after you posted it but the photos provided inspiration for my own photos and you had some great advice on your post!
Pick one favorite!! Do I half to? You know I do love your life updates. And travel my fav! My favorite would probably be the one on all the redecorating of your apartment. It was such a pretty reveal. Love seeing how it all came together.
My favorite post is the personal life update.
My absolute favorite post this year was Your restaurant guide to London. I have never seen such a thoughtful and detailed post on that topic on any blog, ever, and I can’t explain how thankful I am that you took the time to share your knowledge. You have saved my husband and I infinite amounts of time for our upcoming honeymoon. Thank you, thank you! Wishing you all the best in 2018!
My favourite post was your spring shoe review – I’m dying to own a pair of the Tory Burch Poppy Espadrilles! They’re lovely and so are you!
Really loved your living room reveal! You inspired me to redecorate! I’m so glad I found your blog. The effort you put into your post really shows. I appreciate how much time to take to make sure you reply to your followers!! So much love for you!
Loved your Greece post! A ton of travel outfit inspo and great reviews on places to eat. Will definitely revisit that post when I finally book a trip there.
I love all you posts about traveling!! I have so much wanderlust, and your posts inspire me to get out there and buy a ticket somewhere!
My favorite post was the 25 Chic Home Decor Options!!
Loved your Positano travel post because I was headed there!!
My favorites are your fashion and style posts! Your content is interesting and so well put together and it makes it easier as a reader to put the look together for ourselves!
Hey! Loved following your blog in 2017 and can’t wait for 2018! I come for the fashion and travel but I love that you share life updates with us. Loved your post when you shared that you moved into a new place with your boys and that you’re so happy there! Congratulations!
I think your Tulum travel guide was my absolute favorite!! And tied with your Santorini ones!! Haha I almost to the letter copied your exact trips and LOVED every single place you recommended!!! Your attention to detail is SO appreciated ESPECIALLY for another super OCD, Type A gal like myself! Lol
I stumbled across your page about a year ago and what a happy accident it was! Out of all the bloggers, I truly enjoy the content you post and like that you interact with your followers…unlike some others that I have followed. I love seeing Fish and Chips pop up in your stories, especially when they’re misbehaving in the background…so adorable! Keep up the good work! You’re relatable and fun which is why I keep up with your page. You remind me of my girlfriends!
Love so many of your blog posts but one of my all time favs was your Tulum post! I have never been and have it high on my travel bucket list! Loved reading it and all the adventures you had inch to make me want to go there ASAP! Cant wait for all that is to come in this coming year of blogs! Love all your content!
Well I have to say my favorite posts are your travel ones and what things you need on a trip.
The moving post with fish and chips!
Your blog is great so it’s so hard to pick just one! If I ad to narrow it down I would say packing must haves and of course anything featuring Fish and Chips!!
I definitely loved your life update post the most! As much as I enjoy your posts about style, home decor, health, etc. it’s always such a treat to get a bigger peek into your more private life. Plus, I’m a sucker for anything involving your two little cuties ????????
My favorite post is when you do a recap.. bc after reading your post..sometimes I forgot an idea or suggestions but when u recap..then I remembered what i need to try or order or etc from your posts
I love the Nordstrom anniversary sale post and your moving post!
I don’t know if I have a specific post I love. But I’ll tell you what I love about all of them. I love how much thought you put into each of them and offer useful information and opinions. Your attention to detail and organization is totally appreciated. I guess my current fav is the post about the top 10 things to have/remember when traveling. Such great tips!!!
My favorite post would definitely be the Rome travel post! Gave me such a reality check about really documenting my own trips!
Loved your recent holiday travel and new year celebration in London. Love all of your travel diaries.
I loved your Nordstrom anniversary sale posts. They were honest and featured great products!
Loved your Living Room Reveal!
It’s hard to pick one favorite! I loved reading about your move and I love that you share food tips on your Instagram. I am VERY picky and your suggestions look perfect for my kind of appetite 🙂 You are a blogger I can connect with as far as travel, style , personality and food suggestions so THANK YOU for that.
Burano!!! But I truly love all home decor and summer wear posts!
Nordstrom anniversary sale post. Home decor post. Ten things to pack travel posts are faves but really enjoy your blog in general and I enjoy the mix of posts you have across the board.

I love following along with you and honestly appreciate how genuine you are! My favorite post was the travel guide for Florence, Italy! I’m actually traveling there in a few short months! ????
One of my favorites was the laser treatment review! I too struggle with brown spots on my face, so it was great to see you have such amazing results!
I loved both the florance travel diary and the samtorini travel diary. Reading your travel diaries is so helpful when it comes to planning daily excursions/activities. I feel like i have my own recon team scoping out the best of the best! Im also grateful for all the resturant recomendations you share. Some of the best meals we had in Florence came from your recomendation in the florance travel diary blog post!
Your travel posts! They are so beautifully done.
The Picoway Laser Facial Treatment was so helpful. I had never heard of it before your post.
As a busy, working lady, I especially appreciated your NSale posts this year – I didn’t want to miss out on the good stuff and you helped me navigate through all the cute stuff during the sale.
Your Tulum post. My husband and I are going there on May just the two of us and your post has helped a lot with your recommendations and I’m just so excited. Your post has helped me to picture the beautiful places and just picture are selfs where we are staying
Nordstrom anniversary sale try-on for sure! Thanks!
I loved your Nordstrom sale try on!!! Also I love your posts about skincare and how we can learn from our mistakes. Oh and I love on your stories when you give us your nurse tips
My favorite post of yours for the year was the “10 Must-Have Packing Items For International Travel,” I LITERALLY read it a hundred times and I sent it to all my friends and family. In 2017, I was able to take my first trip to Europe and your entire blog helped me SO much! I also love your travel diaries and the mix of lifestyle/travel/outfit posts. Thanks for always keeping us inspired!
Loved you Anniversary sale picks. Also not sure which blog post you started mentioning Abercrombie stuff in…but it made me order and go back into that store for the first time in maybe 15 years. Hahaha. Who knew they have such cute loungewear?!
Your Christmas home decor post!
My favorite post was the ones related to skin care that was a huge thing for me in 2017 and it was great to follow you on your journey. I learned a lot from those post
Loved your skincare update/laser treatment review! Also love any post that involves those sweet puppies ????
My favorite post was the travel packing guide because that is always the hardest part for me when traveling.
I love them all, hard to choose just one. I get super excited when you post all of your NSale faves. And anytime you talk about Fish and Chips, they are so sticking cute! Whenever I have a vacation planned I find myself going through your old blogs, Instagramand LIKEtoKNOW.it too help me find vacation must haves and pack my bag. I’m looking forward to keeping up with you in 2018!! (And more pics and videos of those sweet pups!)
I loved your Tulum post! I just took a trip there in December based on your recommendations! Thank you ❤️
ALl your travel pics are my fav!! You really are such an inspiration!!
I honestly don’t follow a lot of blogs but you’ve got me hooked. I’m also a nurse that loves to travel and love to dress up so you got me “listening”. We recently just bought our first house so I specially loved your post on “25 Chic Home Decors”. I’ve not only enjoy checking out your OOTD but also love seeing your decorations at home. Please post more.????
So many fun and inspirational things you posted, it’s hard to decide! My top favorites were your laser and skin updates and your living room reveal. I always love and appreciate your recommendations! Thank you for taking the time to research and post everything! Blessings! ????
I loved the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts. Sometimes it’s hard to catch everything that they put on sale. It’s my fave sale bc it’s for the upcoming season. Also I, I would LOVE to see more posts on decor. I love your transitional neutral decor and would love to to see some more ideas.
I love anything with your dogs! ???? Adopting Chips, moving & the decor in your new place.
