Hello everyone and welcome to my first blog post of 2018!
The first days of January are probably the most silent days of the year and it was so since I could remember myself ;-). Before the New Year’s Eve we all have so many things to do, that we actually don’t have time to evaluate the past year and to set some goals and milestones for the coming year. Therefore I am absolutely sure that the first days of January are perfect for doing this.
What I’ve done in 2017
I started my blog a year ago – learning from scratch how to create blog on WordPress (actually before doing this I was reading a lot about other different blogging platforms, but somehow I’ve stopped here and I am glad I did ;-)).
The other challenge was to figure out how to make nice pictures for Instagram, flat lays, nice outfit and product pictures. In fact, I’ve realized that there are so many tips & tricks to learn and to practice!
To sum it up, 2017 was a year of learning new things about blogging, photo making and editing. I am not going to measure the success of the first year of blogging, simply because we all have different expectations and a good achievement for me might not be good enough for you.
Instead I’d like to share with you the best of 2017: best trip, best fashion purchase, best beauty discovery, best gift and best pics.
Best trip 2017
The best trip of 2017 was definitely trip to Iceland, because it was something so different, so special and very beautiful! If you haven’t read my post about Iceland than check it out here 😉
Best fashion purchase 2017 – my Ted Baker silver shoes. Every time I wear them I receive so many compliments!
Best beauty product that I’ve discovered in 2017 – Glamglow mask YOUTHMUD. I’ve never believed in miracles, but seriously – this mask can do miracles! When your skin looks tired, apply the mask and your skin will instantly look amazing. Of course, it is only for a few hours – but it works! If you are interested in more details, check out my blog post about this Glamglow mask.
Best gift that I’ve received last year – monogrammed cashmere scarf from Burberry that my husband gifted me for my birthday. You could check out more about my fall wardrobe additions here 😉
What I expect from 2018?
In fact I am happy with what I already have and I am grateful for this! I’d like to read more, to develop myself in different aspects of my life – from reading self-development books to attending cooking classes. I’d like to do things that I love and enjoy – blogging is one of those things;-). I am also enjoying to read other blogger posts, because it is great way to get inspiration and to connect with new people. I’d like to be more consistent with my own blog and try to post more regularly.
I also have some plans where I’d like to go on holidays this year and I am so excited about it, but I will keep silent for now 🙂
The last thing I’d like to mention is that Instagram became the most popular social media channel for me in 2017 where I keep posting all the time, therefore I would love to see you on Instagram!
Have a great New Year 2018! May all your dreams and goals come true this year! Cheers!
