2018 was quite a year!  It has been so fun to look back at the most popular posts and all that happened on The Lush List and in our lives.  Today, I’m sharing the Best Blog Posts of 2018 for Style and Beauty.  I’ll be sharing Home, Food/Entertaining and Travel later this week.

I’ve included the most popular blog posts other than Packing Lists and What I Wore Round Ups which will be in the Best Travel Posts.  The Gift Guides, which everyone always loves aren’t included either.  These are going to live under the Shop tab on the menu above and will be updated so you have a place for great gift ideas all year long!

This favorite post listing is based on blog analytics.  I love to see what you enjoyed for the whole year.  I look as we go through the year but looking back is so fun!

For the details, click on the links below each photo and you’ll be taken to the original post.  I’ve updated as many links as I can for you.

I have a lot of great content planned over the next few months including 4 home reveal projects you are going to love.  I’m also working on a really big, special project that I can’t wait to share with you!  These will all be fairly time consuming but so wonderful!

I’m also being intentional about my New Year Reset I shared with you last week.  It’s been fun hearing your goals the year, too.  I would love to know what you’d like to see more of on The Lush List as I create a content calendar for the year!  Just leave me a comment below or send me an email (which most of you prefer to do!)

Happy Weekend!



PS – The winner of the second Juliska champagne set was announced on today’s newsletter and is K. Olson!

I’m going to be doing weekly giveaways for newsletter subscribers and Instagram followers so be sure to follow The Lush List on Instagram and subscribe to the Newsletter!  Each prize will be different but will include full size beauty products and more.  All you have to do is leave comments on blog and Instagram posts and I’ll draw a comment and compare to my subscriber list every week during Q1.  Good luck!
