Today, I’m looking back at the Best of 2018: Home, Entertaining and Recipe posts on The Lush List.  I truly love creating this type of content and look forward to doing much more in 2019! It seems from the analytics you love these posts, too!  The big project I am working on will definitely incorporate more of home, entertaining and food inspiration.

I want to thank you once again for making 2018 a wonderful year for me and The Lush List.  It is because of you that I get to do this and I am truly grateful!  I posted all the Best of 2018: Style and Beauty on Tuesday in case you missed those posts.  The Best of Travel is coming next week for Wanderlust Wednesday.

To see the original posts, simply click the links under the collage photo.  I have also included the top home items you loved in a boutique below.

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!
