Happy New Years friends!! 2017 has been a year for the books. There have been so many great memories this year and I can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for us! We are planning more travel this year, lots of more blogging events, collaborations and even more blog content. I can’t wait to share what I have planned for the new year with you all.
JANUARY – 2017 started out with a bang with a fun blogger brunch, where I met some of my best blogger friends. We are actually celebrating our one year anniversary in 2018.
FEBRUARY – I started a new series on BEB featuring work wear posts. I was so excited to start this series because work wear is some of my favorite looks to shoot. I am planning on sharing more office looks in 2018.
MARCH – This was a pretty low key month. Not a whole lot happened. ?
APRIL – I went to Colorado to visit my sister for my nieces 1st birthday party. I got to visit with my Mom who I hadn’t seen in a while too! We are planning another trip back soon.
MAY – Brian and I traveled to San Antonio, TX to celebrate our 4th wedding anniversary and my 30th birthday! We hadn’t visited this area together before, so it was a treat to be able to explore the city together.
JUNE – I did a fun collaboration with two of my blogger friends, Kasey and Yasmina, for a fun girls night in. See the full post here.
JULY – Brian’s mom came in town for a week to visit. Beautifully Elegant Blog celebrated 2 years this month too. I am still so surprised by the growth of this blog! You all are amazing!
AUGUST – We celebrated Brian’s 35th birthday with a small party.
SEPTEMBER – Brian and I traveled to Carmel, CA for my first time. We enjoyed the beach and being with his parents for a week. I never wanted to leave California! I also attended my very first StyleCon with some of my blogger besties.
OCTOBER- We took a spontaneous trip to Hot Springs, AR this month. I loved the fact that we didn’t even really plan this trip, we just went. I became an aunt again!
NOVEMBER- I attended a fun Christmas party in Ft. Worth with some other blogger babes and celebrated Thanksgiving with my in-laws.
DECEMBER- I met my newest nephew, Crosby and celebrated my grandmothers 96th birthday.
THE STUGGLE WITH THE ALGORITHM
- Interact – Like, comment and even press that get notifications button so you can see your favorites posts, not only from me, but from all your other favorite bloggers.
- Sponsored Content – This is always a tricky subject especially these days, but it is how bloggers make their money, so even if the post is sponsored make sure to give it a like. Engagement is how most of us land those sponsored posts to begin with. It really helps us out and allows us to continue to create content for you all.
- Share with Friends – If you like our content, chances are your friends or family will like us too!
Thank you all so much for reading! xo, Nataly
