Best of Lovely Life Styling 2017!

This is my instagram best nine from 2017?! I guess you guys DO like my outfit photos! Should I post more of these on IG? Let me know in the comments below!

Hey guys! Can you believe that it is going to be 2018 in just a few days? This year was definitely a whirlwind year for our family. It started out a little stressful with the move back to Ohio, but by the summer time we started settling into our new digs. And the end of this year was the best part, with house updates, halloween, holidays, birthdays and best of all, Christmas! As much as I am sad to see this year end, I am so looking forward to 2018. I have so many goals and aspirations for the upcoming year, but for now I will simply share what I am proud from the past year from this little blog of mine. 

First up, it's no secret that I use affiliate links on my blog in order to make a tiny little commission off of items that I've linked to in my posts that readers purchase. This is pretty common knowledge these days and has become a very popular way for bloggers to make some, if not all, their income in order to help support their blog. Keep in mind, I have a full time job and the money I make from this little blog of mine barely pays my phone bill monthly. My main focus is not to generate an income from my blog. It is truly my creative outlet and something I enjoy doing on the side. BUT, if I can make a few extra bucks on the side simply by sharing products and items that I like and possibly own myself... Why not?!

So, if you follow me on instagram, you've probably noticed that I post some #ootd photos with the Liketoknowit links. If you have no idea what I'm talking about or how it works, you can go here and scroll down to the 'see how it work' button for a quick tutorial! Below are the top 10 most clicked on liketoknowit links that I've published in 2017.

Looking forward to 2018, I am hoping to make a few changes on the blog front. Since I'm going to be working more hours for my daytime job, I may have less time to focus on the blog. But, I am hoping to keep a schedule of posting at least twice a week. I really want to be able to publish quality content on my blog, so I don't want to feel pressured to just post random/non-quality content. This seems to be the new norm when it comes to blogging, doesn't it? I actually don't know of very many bloggers that still post Monday-Friday!

So please, do not forget about me over here! Of course, I will be posting regularly on instagram and instastories! So, you can follow along with me there on the daily.

PS - Have you seen all the great post Christmas sales going on right now? I've been hooked on Nordstrom's half yearly sale! I added a tab at the top of the blog with all my Nordstrom sale picks listed. Check it out! SO many great pieces on major sale!

Happy New Year you!! And thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support, comments, likes, and readership of this little creative corner of mine! Cheers to 2018!
