It’s officially October AKA “The Best Month of the Year” (given this title by yours truly, though I know tons of you that feel this way too). I’ve always loved October because it feels like the true start of fall/the holiday season, the weather is amazing and oh yeah, it’s my birthday month! Yay! And outfits like this are what I live for in the fall – lightweight sweaters, jeans and pumps. Once we get to tons of layers, coats, boots, scarves, etc, my love for getting dressed begins to drop more and more until spring comes back and I cannot get by with easy pieces that don’t require much bundling up. I already raved about these jeans in this post, but I truly cannot say enough great things about how flattering they are when on. I am amazed they look this good for me now, so I can only imagine how perfect they will be when I’m not pregnant. The shape has a slimming effect and the inseam falls exactly where I want it to which almost never happens for me. I have to cut almost every single pair of jeans and even when I cut them, they are never exactly the length I want. Clearly someone at Free People understands us shorter inseam gals!
The last half of this post was an idea given to me recently by a reader and I loved it! I review my blog’s analytics every month in regards to posts, videos and top items that my readers are loving, so I thought I would share that with all of you in today’s post. I for one love to know what is popular on other blogs or sites because maybe I missed something and want to know what all the hype is about! LOL So here is a look at highlights from my blog in September:
Most read blog post: I haven’t worn anything from Express in years, but decided to pick up a few things and this post wearing my purchases was my most read post last month. After falling in love with those jeans, I now have Express on my radar.
Most watched video: Haul videos are truly the videos I enjoy watching the most from other bloggers, so it didn’t surprise me that this video was my most watched. It was my favorite to film as well!
Most clicked on fashion item last month: These sneakers blew away every single other fashion item I posted about last month as my most clicked on item. And considering my obsession for all things leopard, it’s clear all of you love the print as much as me!
Most clicked on beauty item last month: So if you aren’t following me on Instagram, now would be a good time (@alittlebitetc) because I featured my favorite facial cotton in an Instagram story and it was the most clicked on item for the entire month. And also one of the most purchased items too!
Most purchased fashion item last month: This dress was actually one I wore in an Instagram post, but it was by far the most purchased item from September. From my blog, this adorable fall dress (worn in this post and under $50!) was the most purchased item and I can see why. The fit is so flattering (and it works pregnant or not) and it comes in a ton of fall colors. Coming in right behind the dress were these $12 stretchy tanks I bought and can’t stop wearing. Though they are not maternity, they are long enough to cover the bump but I plan to keep wearing them after baby because they are a great layering piece.
Most purchased beauty item last month: While the facial cotton I featured was a big hit with many of you, the most purchased item was this concealer that I wear in almost every single video now. I went back to using it a few months ago and cannot get enough. It’s so creamy and lightweight but gives amazing coverage. This Tinted Sunscreen which I must have talked about no less than 10 times this past summer came in just under the concealer. It’s a splurge but truly stunning on the skin.
Hope you guys enjoyed this little peek into my blog and if you are interested in seeing this again for upcoming months, please leave me a comment or send me an email! I enjoy sharing great finds with all of you and it gives me so much joy when you find something from one of my recommendations that you love just as much.
