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!



PS – Don’t forget the giveaways for newsletter subscribers and Instagram followers so be sure to follow Alicia Wood Lifestyle 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/or Instagram posts and I’ll draw a comment and compare to my subscriber list every week during Q1.  Good luck!

2020 Ski Chic Style Shop

Our family took a trip to Telluride, Colorado over the holidays and had such a wonderful time! It’s those trips that our family will cherish forever. While I was there, I got a lot of questions about what I was wearing, so I thought it was time to share the 2020 Ski Chic Style Shop. With MLK Day, President’s Day, and spring break around the corner, you might be planning the perfect ski vacation. Which means you need the perfect ski outfit!

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

Nordstrom Beauty Discovery: Cle de Peau Concealer

It’s easy to get in a routine when it comes to make up.  My need for a new concealer lead me back to an old favorite and the discovery of some new products from Cle de Peau.

For years, I used the cult favorite concealer from this fabulous brand. I discovered it as a new mom with tired eyes and dark circles. It was my go -o for years. Now as a mom of teenagers, I feel like those dark circles have returned!

Have A Travel Challenge: Take a Cruise!

“Anything but a cruise!”   Maybe you feel the same way?  Believe me, I get it.  I had always said the same thing but my friend Kelly Gruber, founder of Sherry Lane Travel changed my mind and showed me how it solves a travel challenge!
