2013 Top 5s


It’s been a year of milestones for my little blog and I’m so thankful for my readers and my community here. I certainly couldn’t have done it without you! As I was pulling together this post, I couldn’t believe that some of these were written this year. It seems like a lifetime ago! This year I got my Zumba instructor certification, updated my blog design, was featured in both 425 Magazine for Best Blog and Styled.Right Magazine, and attended two Lucky FABB conferences (one in LA and one in NYC). I can’t wait to see what next year will bring!

Here’s a collection of my top 5 posts in each category throughout the year, with a bonus in each category of my favorite post! As I was pulling together this list, I couldn’t believe that some of these posts, which I had to dig way back in the archives to find, were written this year! I hope you have as much fun looking back through these posts as I did. And, as always, thank you for being such an awesome community and supporting my blog!
