• {Favourites} Top 5 posts of January 2016 

    January 2016

    Last year I made a decision to survey my blog every month and check which posts were doing well on the blog, which could do with some improvements and which were not well received. January was a very busy and productive month for me both personally and blog wise. I have managed to tick Prague off my travel bucketlist (but I will be going again) and also managed to achieve a goal of saving all monies earned on the blog.

    I am very pleased with my self but not to get too carried way here are the top 5 posts of January 2016

    Fashion Travel Essentials – I have shared many a times how much I love putting outfits together and sharing them and to know that you’re enjoying these types of posts as much as I am creating them makes me really happy and I am grateful to all m readers new and old alike.


    Fashion Travel Essentials


    Lifestyle Tips to renew your bathroom – This post was written mostly by my SIL because she and my brother had just moved back to their old place and there was some fixer upper that required some attention and the bathroom post seemed like a good idea and I am glad I asked her expertise as you all loved it.

    2016 Winter Face routine – One thing I am hugely proud of since I started blogging is how much I care for my skin. Before I never used to worry about chemicals in my products and if I did it was not to the extent it is now or I just lacked knowledge so I never bothered. I try a variety of products but mostly natural products which protect my face whatever the weather. My Face routine has changed big time since I started blogging and hope to improve it even further in the future using some amazing products on the market.



    Prague Weekend Getaway – Visiting Praha (as the locals call Prague) was an experience on its own, the weather was not favourable but our attitudes were and we had so much fun. Every time I see snow I think of the fun we had in Praha and for me that’s what weekend getaways are all about. Creating memories in the shortest period of time.

    Fashion Monday – A Blue & Green Day – This was a surprise to me as the most popular one was the Black & Beige Fashion post for that entire week but I guess throughout the month people preferred this outfit. I always say to people I dress in the dark and rarely do I take time to plan out my outfits. Both the Black & Beige outfit and this Blue & Green Day outfit were spur of the moment types of outfits. I have an open closet so it is easy to see what I have and what I fancy wearing that morning.

        It was an amazing month thanks.

      Oh I really like this idea 🙂 I think i may start doing this as well. As I can really see the benefit to you as well so you can tailor the next months posts to what is being well received. Thanks for the tip 🙂

        You most welcome and that was the main idea behind it

      This is a great idea! I think making a note of your popular posts each month really does help you to see whats working and what isn’t, and even pick up on seasonal trends ready for next year. Love the fashion travel essentials!

      Nice to look back and collate your best posts. I’m a fan of the travel ones (I’m rubbish at decorating,and fashion isn’t my thing any more).

        Hahahaha I am not that good either just trying. Thanks

      That’s a great idea to check at the end of the month, might have to start doing that. I did enjoy your Prague post!

      • February 9, 2016 / 8:30 am

        Thanks Cathy, I find it useful to see what’s working and what isn’t

    6. February 8, 2016 / 8:42 pm

      That’s such a good idea, I never really check over my posts monthly but I’d probably get a much better idea of what my readers prefer if I did.

        Thanks Ali I thought I start checking and seeing what’s what
