I know I don't have much of a focus on my blog...I just like to post about whatever happens to tickle my fancy at the time. I have a modest following because of this, but I'm okay with that. I like to write, and I like what I write about! That being said, I want to thank the people who do take the time to read and comment on my posts. I really do appreciate it.
Now that the year is coming to an end, I wanted to recap my first year of blogging (I started Concepts and Commodities in January of 2012). I took a look back at all of my posts and picked my favorite 12 posts out of the 55 I did in 2012. Here they are in no particular order. :)
MIO Bags - I love Beth and her products! Her business keeps growing and her designs keep getting more impressive!
Nylabone Dura Chew - This is my chocolate lab's favorite toy. It's a "tough toy" that keeps her busy!
Wedding Favors with a Special Meaning - This post was inspired by my best friend and fellow blogger's wedding favors, which I ended up using in my wedding this past October.
Zoya's Birchbox Blogger Collection - Zoya is my favorite brand of polish and this collection was a lot of fun to review!
Tulleries by LEX - I love how LEX works and this is one of the most gorgeous and unique polishes!
Lynnderella's Shape Shifter - This is probably one of my most favorite manicures. Also, Shape Shifter is one of my favorite indie polishes that I waited so long and so patiently to own!
Saying Yes to the Dress - A great all-around experience...buying my wedding dress and blogging about it!
KLUTCHclub - They sent me this big ol' box full of stuff and it was a lot of fun to try and review the products!
Too Faced LashGASM Mascara - Too Faced sent me their LashGASM mascara to try for my Mascara March Madness and it's still my favorite!
JENsations - All of my JENsations posts make the cut...my friend and fellow polish lover Jen has a great line of polishes for sale in her Etsy shop. I had a great time trying out a bunch of her products and hosting a giveaway of them on my blog. Some pretty well-known nail bloggers have reviewed her products and loved them!
JW Slow-feed pet bowl - I'm all about what's best for my chocolate lab, and the slow-feed bowl is a lifesaver...literally.
Cheesecake-stuffed strawberries - I would be remiss if I didn't include a food post...and this one was quite popular on my Facebook page! One of my New Year's resolutions is to spend more time cooking...and I want to find more easy/delicious/healthy recipes to try!
Happy New Year, everyone! May you all have a healthy and prosperous 2013!
