Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 12 - 2014

Question of the Week: What were some of your favorite blog posts that you wrote in 2013?

lipstickleague - final

Answer: 2013 wasn’t a great blogging year for me.  Like the girl with a little curl, when I was loving it… it was very, very good, but when I was off form, it was horrid.  Having said that, I still managed to squeeze in 311 posts over the last 12 months, so it couldn’t have been that bad!

My favourite posts are usually the ones that make me laugh to myself in a “finding yourself hilarious really isn’t the done thing” kinda way.  Either that or the FOTDs that make me look prettier than I really am and those moments when a camera really captures the beauty of a product.  C’mon, I’m a girl, with a makeup blog. This shit matters! 

So with that criteria ringing in my ears, I’d have to submit this (my favourite nail collection of the year), this (because I fell asleep that night still chuckling) and this (I couldn’t find a FOTD of me I liked v. much, so have my girl crushes instead!) as my favourite posts of last year.

    I think that one can only blog about what floats one’s own boat, and if it makes you laugh then that is the best. Here’s to a good 2014 xx
