Friday 10: Top Posts of 2014

After setting some goals for 2015 on Monday, I thought it would be fun to look back at 2014's most popular posts. Take a peek! 

1. Friday 10: Weekender Bags

A round-up of stylish and functional weekender bags to take for your mini adventures.

2. Daydream Destination: Florence's Boboli Gardens

At first, it surprised me to see this older post doing so well this year. Then I realized Dan Brown's book Inferno features a tense scene in the grotto of the Boboli Gardens. Visitors came to check out pictures of the intricate grotto and the funny little statue of Braccio di Bartolo atop a turtle. 

3. Sweet Treats from Kelly's Bake Shoppe

A taste and review of vegan, gluten-free, peanut-free deliciousness from Kelly's Bake Shoppe. We ended up booking our wedding cake with them! 

4. Friday 10:  A Paris getaway

A round up of 10 places to stay and things to do for a beautiful Paris getaway. 

5.  Friday 10: Long flight essentials

My recommendations for surviving long-haul flights and making it to the other side feeling and looking good. 

6.  Halfway through the Whole30

My experience with the first half of the Whole30. Toughing through 2 weeks of no grains, no dairy, no soy, no added sugar, no msg/carageenan/sulfites, no legumes, and no alcohol. Yeah, about that. . .there's a reason why their timeline includes a "kill all the things" and "I just want to nap" phase!

7.  I finished the Whole30!

A look at how the last half of my Whole30 went. It was hard, but worthwhile. I learned a lot about how what I eat affects how I look and feel. As a result, I've kicked dairy to the curb--unless it's a really delicious treat! 

8.  Nights at the Louvre

Reminiscing about our last trip to Paris and my love affair with the Louvre at night. 

9.  Friday 10:  Carry-ons for the flight and beyond

Ten classic, stylish, useful carry-ons. 

10:  What's a sharecation, anyway? 

I consider this the wild card. It's a post I wrote a long time ago about how much I dislike the term sharecation. I thought it was a grumpy ramble, but something about it must have struck a chord with people. 

I still hate the word sharecation!

It was interesting to see what ended up being popular. The Friday 10 posts are obviously a big hit! I'll continue to do those (although I may play with Friday 5s, too). 

Let me know if there's something you'd like to see more of in the coming year!

I hope you have a great weekend!
