2016 Blog Recap

I'm 100% copying this idea from Kayla Blogs. I loved the idea and decided that even though January is almost over, I wanted to sit down and recap my 2016 year of blogging. It will be fun to look back on in the future.



Although I'm really not too concerned about numbers (I've been blogging for 7 years and don't make a million dollars a year, so... maybe I should be! Ha!) but I do like to track it at least once a year. I always seem to lose the paper I write my stats on though, so hopefully this will help!

Number of posts published in 2016 // 73

Number of sponsored posts // 27 (wow, almost half of my posts came from sponsored posts/review posts. No wonder I was starting to feel burnt out! I'm looking forward to some fun content this year and still sharing the occasional sponsored post of things I love!)

All time pageviews // 555,095

Twitter Followers // 1,717

Instagram Followers // 2,110

Facebook Likes // 769

Bloglovin Followers // 541

Pinterest Followers // 847

Grand Legacy At the Park Hotel Review //

I was SO LUCKY to be able to partner with Grand Legacy when I went to Disneyland in July. We stayed a night and I wrote up this review about it. Since then, we've had many friends and family book at that hotel and they've all loved their stays. Seriously, we love it there.

LipSense Review from a Non-Distributor //

I did a review of LipSense from Senegence back when it was just starting to blow up. I think having an unbiased review made this post so popular. Plus, everyone was curious about it. And... my collection has grown to like 15 colors since. Whoops!

I worked with Cariloha on a few different posts in 2016 and I am OBSESSED. They have the best customer service ever. Here are my reviews for:

It was a dream to decorate my home salon with Deseret Book! POST HERE.

I loved being on the Blog Squad for the Rescue Run 5K! It was the greatest day and they raised a TON of money for Operation Underground Railroad.
