Beauty Advice

2017 has been an interesting year. I have had more time for my blog and I feel like I took good advantage of that. My directory has filled up with so many new reviews, makeup looks and even some nail designs. I tried some new products that have impressed me and ventured out in my makeup creations in hopes of becoming more artsy. I've decided to write this post to reflect on the past year and show you what were my most read posts and which were my favorites. It's also a good starting point, if you're new to my blog.

2017 Favorite Posts

I Like You A Lot Nails
My Highlighter Collection
Brown Gold Skull Halloween Makeup
Caution: Mermaids Ahead!
My Current Skincare

My favorite posts usually include some makeup looks which I feel turned out as I wanted them too. I included Bronzy because it's a representation of what I usually wear. This is my comfort zone. Skull was so much fun creating and I loved how it turned out. I'd probably wear it out, if I went somewhere. Mermaids was one of those really colorful looks, punched with color that was so out of my comfort zone.

I also included nails which I really liked the end result. My other favorite posts are usually those that I feel I put extra time and effort in. I really liked sharing my skin care routine with you as well as my highlighter collection, which has been my number one obsession in makeup for the past few years.

My most read posts are as expected. Every year my swatches of new Avon lipsticks have a lot of views and I understand why. Because there's so little swatches of the shades online. I love doing these kind of post, even though they take up a lot of my time, but I know it's helpful for those ordering at Avon. You also seemed to love reviews of other drugstore products that I often times post and I'm hoping my reviews are helpful. I loved writing each of these.


Affordable Gift Guide

This year I collaborated with my favorite blogger Mateja and I have to say that this is also one of my favorite posts. It was long time in the making and I really liked the options we gave to our readers. If you're ever in search for that perfect gift for a beauty lover, definitely check out our posts.

Favorite Slovenian Bloggers

I want to give a shoutout to some of the Slovenian bloggers that I have been reading in the past year. When I went through my feed, I realized many of them stopped writing their blogs a while ago and I hope some of these come back this year.

My absolute favorite bloggers to read are:
Mateja's Beauty Blog
Memento Mori
Lana Talks
The Chunky Cheeks
Lacquered Bits

I also loved reading:
21st Century Girl
All About Vanja
Ana Ina Palmer
All Things Artsy
Hysteria of Decay
Low Maintenance Beauty
Mad About Red
Mademoiselle Eva
Nina In The Spring
Passing Fancy
Rose TouchBlog
Sindiana Jones
Small Bits of Loveliness
Sparkle With Laughter
Sugarlove Blog
The Beauty Of Nail Polish
Uniqa Poly

I watch a lot of YouTube videos, although I haven't really subscribed to many Slovenian bloggers. But two that I really liked watching this year were:

I have to thank each of you that ever clicked like on any of my social media, read any of my posts or left me comments. I really appreciate you and even though this is my venting place, I wouldn't be doing that without your support. It's one thing loving makeup and beauty, but sharing it with others makes it so much more fun. I hope I helped you in any way and I thank you for showing me love.

This year I saw a decline in blogs. Seems like YouTube and videos are becoming more popular and I understand that. It's more visual, but also more time consuming. I hope I'll have time for blog this year as well and have inspiration and drive for doing what I have been doing so far. I have some goals that I want to accomplish in my personal life as well, which may be more time consuming than I thought. Thank you in advance to all of you that will be sticking with me in 2018.

Have a good one,
Petra :)
