Hi!

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and beauty. Hope you have a nice stay!

Maggie à la Mode: Best of 2017

Maggie à la Mode: Best of 2017

2017 was quite a year. Personally, it was a great year of growth both personally and professionally. I got to travel to wondrous new places and started a completely new career path. We celebrated one year in our first home purchase, and the blog had a big makeover. To celebrate the best posts of the year, I thought I'd do something different and instead of my favorites from 2017 (you can see all my favorites here), I thought I'd do yours! The most popular posts from each month are below, and one of them is actually the most popular post of all on the blog! What posts were your favorites from this year? What posts would you love to see in 2018? I'd love to hear! Comment below or send me an email, and let's make 2018 the best one yet!


January

Travel à la Mode: Lamanai Mayan Ruins in Belize

I love how we started out the year with a travel post! In 2018, prepare for a lot more informational travel posts - there are a few Iceland posts in the works, and we'll be going to Vietnam, Singapore, and Bali in February!


February

Dr. Jart+ Cicapair Tiger Grass Color Correcting Treatment Review

While this post was technically published on January 30th, it didn't start gaining popularity until February so that's why I'm including it here. Plus, the rest of February was pretty slow. Fun fact: This is by far the most popular post on this site overall!


March

The Shoes of the Season

These are still some of my favorite shoes! I'm a little sad I haven't been able to wear them lately because of all the snow...


April

The Everyday Dress

I think this was my favorite month for outfits, there were so many good ones!


May

The Best Utility Jacket Under $50

This jacket is still available and in more colors than ever!


June

Anthropologie Saskia Embroidered Dress

This was one of my most-admired dress of the year (and deservingly so!)


July

Chloe Hudson Bag Review + Look for Less

This was a big month for popular posts! Some other popular ones were the Everlane Bridge Sandal Review, and Part 1 of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Home Try-Ons (see next month). But you guys love dupes, so this one won out!


August

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-Ons Part 1 and Part 2

Considering this is the only post I published in August, it's a little funny that it's also one of the most popular of the entire year (irregardless of how many I posted - or didn't post). I want to do more try-ons this year, so stay tuned!


September

New Beauty Loves

I've been dabbling more into beauty posts this year, and really love it! It's so rewarding to share my likes and dislikes with you guys and start a conversation. 


October

How to Wear: The Satin Skirt

One of my favorite looks of the year. It's chic, classy, and has enough unique elements to keep it interesting. Also right about the time we got a new lens for our camera - it's been so fun shooting with it!


November

Glossier Boy Brow (Blonde) Review

This was a post I had been wanting to write for some time, so I'm glad when it was finally published it was well-received! 


December

The 5 Reasons Why I Don't Love OTK Boots

Another post that was in the works in my head for over a year. So happy to finally have it out there!
