Top 10 Purchases from the Blog in 2018

Can you believe it’s already January 21st? How is that even possible?! The first month of 2019 is already almost over and it feels like it just started two days ago. I don’t know how it’s going so quickly, but I hope your year is off to a great start so far. It’s actually been pretty darn good over here. I’ve made some changes in my personal life that are going very well, and life seems to be a little less hectic than normal, which is always a good thing. Anyway, today’s post is a fun one because I’m taking a look back at the top ten items, purchased from my blog in 2018. I sat down this weekend with a cup of coffee and went through my analytics to see which items you all loved the most. It was so cool to see what you all enjoyed throughout the year, and I have to admit that I was REALLY surprised to see what items made the list. It’s a fun mix of clothing and home decor, so I thought it would be fun to share them all with you today!

Top 10 Purchases from the Blog in 2018


1.Asymmetrical Snap Up FleeceOK I have to admit, I’m a little surprised to see that this fleece pullover was the NUMBER ONE item purchased from my blog in 2018. Hundreds of you ordered this fleece and I don’t blame youit’s awesome and worth every last penny! It’s especially great for winterit’s seriously so warm and cozy! (I’m in size small.)

  1. Wire Iron Wall BasketThis large wall basket has been a hot item on my blog ever since I first posted about it in our kids’ playroom two years ago. But unfortunately this thing is never in stock. I try to always let you guys know when it’s back, but it goes super fast!
  2. Wreath Storage BagI was definitely surprised to see this wreath storage bag so high up on the list, but it really is awesome. I use mine for storing Christmas wreaths and garland, but this would obviously work for any wreath or large greenery. It’s HUGE, so you can really get a lot of stuff in there.
  3. Mini HI Wood Cut Out-Again, another item I was surprised to see, but this mini HI wood cut out was a bit hit. I used it in this DIY Summer Wreath back in 2017 and I never imagined it would be so popular, even now!

5. Elan Black Maxi Dress–Can we just talk about how much I LOVE this black maxi dress?! It’s light, airy, and it basically feels like wearing pajamas. I posted about this a few times last year and so many of you loved it too. It’s definitely one of my favorite clothing items!

6.Suede Sherling Slippers–Whoa, these cozy suede slippers were a huge hit and I didn’t even share them until late November! But you all loved them as such as I did. And I have to say, it’s been a few months now and I still wear these Every. Single. Day. I’m wearing them right now in fact. Best slippers ever!! And they don’t cost a fortune.

  1. Youati Ivory and Gray Area Rug–This area rug is something I get questions about all the time, so I’m not surprised to see it on my top ten list. We have two of theseone in our bedroom and living room. They’re both still holding up great, despite all the spills and messes that come with three kiddos! See it here.

8. Chunky Knit Throw–I was really happy to see a throw blanket make the top ten list because I obviously have an obsession with them! This white chunky one is still one of my favorites and it’s a really great price too, plus it comes in a few different color options.

9. Lash Princess Mascara & Kitchen Towels–I’m including two items for number nine because it was pretty much a tie between this mascara, which I fell in love with earlier this year, and these white kitchen towels. Both are from Amazon!

  1. Love Grows Best Sign–Rounding out the list at number ten was my beloved Love Grows Best sign. This is definitely one of my favorite home decor items ever, so I was thrilled to see that so many of you loved it too. (And FYI: it’s currently 20 percent off right now!)

I had so much fun putting this list together and I hope you enjoyed it too! I’m so grateful for all of your support in 2018. Every purchase you make through my blog helps keeps this little show running and I truly appreciate it more than you’ll ever know. I’m so excited for another year with you guys. And one thing I learned from putting this list together is that you all love clothing and beauty finds as much as I do, so I will definitely be sharing those items more often on the blog in 2019!

    Hi Sarah! I must’ve missed the list when you put it out or maybe I hadn’t joined your blog yet. Anyway, I like buying things you suggest because I know it helps you out and keeps your blog up and running for us. I was able to get the shearling slippers on sale for I think it was $24.95! What a steal! 😁. I love a good bargain, lol! If you could going forward, put some links for us full figured plus size gals. We’d really appreciate it, because we all come in different shapes and sizes, lol! Thanks so much! Have a great week! 😁
