2016: A Year in Review

7:05:00 AM


I know I am not the only one, but this year has flown by. There have been so many wonderful moments this year and my blog has grown so much. We celebrated one year of blogging again back in July 2016. Brian and I celebrated 3 years of marriage in May! I have almost reached 8,000 followers on Instagram!? This amazes me everyday that so many of  you are following along on my daily journey!

As I did last year, and will continue to do each year, I am rounding up some of my favorite posts from 2016. This is a great way for me to reflect on all of 2016s memories and see how far we have come, not only for me, but as a group. You all have no idea how much it means to me that you take time out of your day each day to read my posts. I truly love blogging and it wouldn't be possible without you all reading along with me!

I hope you all have a fabulous New Year! 2017 is going to be the best yet!

Thank  you so much for reading! xo, Nataly


JANUARY:  I was still getting in the swing of things after only blogging for about 6 months. I was only posting 1 style post a week and shooting photos on my iPhone!



FEBRUARY: I decided to chop my hair off at the beginning of the month. I was feeling really brave and thought it would be a nice change for the new year. I am growing it out as we speak. No more short hair for me!


MARCH: I attended my very first blogging workshop hosted by Ashley, The Teacher Diva. It was so informative and really helped me start thinking about what I needed to focus on for my blog. I also met several other bloggers in the Dallas area.


APRIL: Recipes started becoming more and more prominent on BEB. Most of you might not know, but my husband is the cook in our home. I started sharing his recipes at his request.


MAY: Brian and I celebrated 3 years of marriage and my 29th birthday. I can't believe I will be 30 in 2017! It is hard to believe because I still don't feel that old.


JUNE: I really stepped outside of my little style box with this look. I am not a huge romper wearer, but I loved the way that this look turned out! I also purchased my first Canon camera to shot proper photos. This is also about the same time that I met Kasey and we started shooting photos together.

JULY: I hit a huge milestone in July when BEB turned one! As you know, I started my blog about 6 years ago now, but didn't fully commit to it until a little over a year in a half ago. 


AUGUST:  We visited Waco, TX during August. It was such a fun trip. I had been begging my husband to take me to the Magnolia Market. If you live in the Dallas area it is only about an hour and a half drive from Dallas. It is really worth the drive if you want to see it!


SEPTEMBER: This was another fun month! Kasey and I attended the Fashion X Dallas event. It was my first time attending a real fashion show. We had a blast! Next up, NYFW! 


OCTOBER: I attended an event called the Style Setter Awards in Dallas. This was a lot of fun and I got to meet up with some other local bloggers from Style Collective. They were also filming for the Real Housewives of Dallas during this event! You might see me on TV this year! LOL







NOVEMBER: I joined Style Collective this year and it was the best decision I have made so far! We had our first meet up and it was so much fun! I loved being able to meet other bloggers who are as passionate as I am about fashion! It is a wonderful community of women who support each other. If you have a question, someone is always there willing to help.  If you are a blogger and would like to learn more about Style Collective click here.


DECEMBER: This past month was sure a busy one! From family in Dallas, to traveling out of town and attending a couple of events with Kasey it was a fun one. 

Wishing you all a fabulous and peaceful 2017!
