Best of 2019: Style, Beauty And Lifestyle

by | Jan 3, 2020 | Beauty, Style | 2 comments

Wow! What a year for me and Alicia Wood Lifestyle.  Looking back at the Best Posts of 2019 continues to make me so thankful!  Today, I’m sharing the Best of 2019: Style, Beauty and Lifestyle posts.  I’ll be sharing Home, Food/Entertaining and Travel next week, as well as, Top 50 Reader Favorites for 2019.

It is always so fun to look back at all that has happened on AWL and in my family.  This favorite post listing is based on blog analytics which show me traffic to each blog post and page of the blog.  You of course love the category pages and return to search for certain posts.  I love seeing this level of detail!

Lifestyle is a newly defined category for 2019 and you really loved these posts!  Look for more of them in 2020.  I love knowing so many of you have college age children and really enjoyed these posts and shared them with friends.  There will be more on this topic as well.

In each category, I’ve included the most popular blog posts.  For Style, Packing Lists and What I Wore Round Ups will be in the Best Travel post next week other than St. Lucia that is below.  The Gift Guides, which everyone always loves aren’t included either.  We are revamping the Gift Guides soon and they will 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!  Until then you can find them under, Holiday.

For the details on each post, 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 and a boutique is below featuring the items that are still available.

I have a lot of great content planned over the next few months including 3 home reveal projects I’m so excited about and know you will love, too.  I’m also working on another really big project that I can’t wait to share with you!  These will all be fairly time consuming but fun!  Be on the lookout for an email soon asking for your input.  It will go to subscribers only so be sure you are subscribed to my newsletter.  You’ll also receive the password for my 5 eBooks when you subscribe.

I’m also being intentional about my New Year Reset I shared with you yesterday.  It’s been fun hearing your goals the year, too.  I would love to know what you’d like to see more of on AWL 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!

    Wow! I’ve been trying to purchase your pea coat for two years and they are always out of my size. I guess I’ll have to go with another brand. You have really been busy this year.

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

Creating the Habit of Exercise + Activewear Favorites

One of the ways I am taking advantage of the forced pause is creating the habit of exercise for myself. I don’t talk about exercise much on AWL because, well, I don’t usually do it. But that is changing!

My Work From Home Style

My Work From Home Style

Because I’ve worked from home for 24 years, either freelancing PR, event planning, volunteering or blogging, WFH or Work From Home attire is not new to me.  While there are days I stay in workout clothes, I get much accomplished when I get dressed for the day!

Small Businesses I Love

Small Businesses I Love

While most people don’t think about this but Influencers/Bloggers are small businesses.  Many of the companies we work with are small businesses as well.  That is why today, I want to share Small Businesses I Love and who have supported my small business since I began this website almost 6 years ago.
