Lifestyle | A Look Back At My Previous Posts

I thought a lovely way to round off 2015 would be to create a 'blast from the past' type post and look back through 10 of my most popular ramblings of the year. I'm not going to waffle too much today, as I've done more than enough in the actual posts themselves, I just wanted a memorable post to look back on the achievements of the little slice of internet I call ClaireMac

1.Event | The Body Shop White Rose.
My first ever Body Shop events & one of my first events since moving to Leeds. This was a wonderful event ran by Tom & Shannon at The White Rose branch where we got an insight into their then new ranges such as Fuji Green Tea & Virgin Mojito. 

2. Beauty | Lush Bar Humbug.
Otherwise known as #Blogmas day 8! I really enjoyed doing #Blogmas this year, not that I didn't the previous year, but knowing one of my recent posts made it to the number two spot is really making me feel chuffed right now. It's a sure sign that my blog's heading in the right direction.

3. Event | Benito Brow Bar. Share The Wow!
This reminds me that I need to go back & get my brows done. Eeek! I'm so thankful for my little blog & the opportunities that arise from it, knowing that you guys love reading about the events I get to go to, makes me feel all warm & fuzzy.

4. Beauty | The Body Shop Glazed Apple Shower Gel.
Another recent post of mine. Yippee! This little beauty made its' way into my stash after a recent trip to the Meadowhall store where we got to preview a few of the Christmas lines from The Body Shop.

5. Fashion | The Camel Coat.
I'm so glad this made the top ten, because I frigging love this coat. I think it's got to be my favourite buy of the year actually. I'd love to improve my fashion photography over 2016, I'm glad at least one post made the cut, but this is definitely my area to improve upon.

6. Event | The Powder Room, Lamberts Yard.

Seems you lovely people enjoy reading my events posts doesn't it - And I love attending them, so it's a win win situation. The Lamberts Yard event introduced loads of new brands including Wood Wood, an amazing sunglasses brand that I will no doubt be visiting once Spring/Summer comes back around.

 7. Fashion | Colour Blocking For Spring.
When I see pictures like this, it makes me feel so nostalgic. This was taken in out very first flat in Leeds, when we didn't know whether we were coming or going or what the hell we were doing. Oh how times have changed! This is one of the reasons I love having a blog - It's basically like an online diary for myself to look back on & reflect upon some amazing times.

8. Beauty | Five Festive Nail Favourites.
Because we all love a post especially dedicated to nail varnishes don't we! I think we all change up our Nail colour & Lip colour (nicely leading me onto my next post) habits over the festive period, so I really enjoyed writing up a post featuring my faves. I'm glad it was one of your faves too!

9.  Beauty | Five Festive Lip Favourites.

I'm so glad this post went down just as well as my five festive nail favourites did. I really love the change in lip colours as the seasons change & you definitely can't beat a red lip for Christmas.

10. Beauty | The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Hand Cream.
Another #Blogmas post has made my top ten! I'm so excited that my more recent posts are some of my most liked. It's definitely a sign that my little blog is heading in the right direction & I can't wait to see where 2016 takes it.

Thank you so much for reading xclaireabella over the last year!! I'm so so so grateful & appreciative that you guys pop back time & time again just to read my ramblings. It's crazy!! I've got some super plans for 2016, even though I think I'll be blogging a little less than I have been this year, I want to create more of a brand with xclaireabella & see where that could take me. 

Thank you once again for reading. Sending you so much love | Claire.x
