Thank you for the Feedback

Beach Ready

Happy Friday, friends! It’s been quite a week. Anel and I got back from our beach staycation on Sunday, and then I turned right around on Monday morning for a girls’ trip to Kennebunkport with my sister to visit our aunts. We had such a great time and were lucky enough to stay at Hidden Pond, one of my bucket list hotels. It didn’t disappoint! I’ll write more about it next week with a full post, but you can see some of our pics from it on Instagram in the meantime.

Yesterday, after getting home, I threw out my back so the last 24 hours have been spent working from bed with a heating pad. It was pretty brutal, but I’m hoping for a speedy recovery because we have a busy weekend including a trip to New Jersey to see the PGA Championship on Sunday!

Before we head into the weekend, I wanted to give you guys a huge huge thank you (again!) for the incredible feedback that you sent in last week. I’ve spent literally hours going through all of the comments and survey results, trying to categorize comments to figure out how to best create content now that I know what you want.

What I learned was: You want more recipes, affordable travel, and personal posts but you also love outfits (with more affordable options) and home décor. Overall, it seemed like my life advice posts are your favorite so I’m going to try to do a whole lot more of that around here. Congratulations to Jessica S and Marjorie F for winning the two Amex gift cards!

If you like the striped tunic (on sale for $19) and sandals (only $12) from this post, be sure to follow along on my Snapchat this weekend because I’ll be doing a takeover for the brand (my first takeover) and all of the details will be there. And you guys always ask me about this tote! I found one very similar on Amazon here.

  10. Hi Julia,

    Your blog has been a great encouragement and inspiration for me. I’ve been writing a blog for 2 years now and I can’t seem to move forward. I love reading your tips and tricks, it helped me big time. Keep them coming.
