What I Wore -Year Review

what-i-wore-year-reviewWell, 2015 is about to come to a close! It’s time to start thinking about 2016.  I have been looking back at the past year of blogging.

I look at the analytics of my blog (sounds boring, I know, but I like looking at numbers and stats ) and see what worked well and of course what didn’t work.

I did a survey last year and I might do another one this year. That helps me know what you like or what you want to see more of on my blog.

If I were going to break my blog down, I would say I like to focus on 3 Main Categories for Women Over 40: Fashion/Beauty, Health and last but not least, faith.

I have some goals set for 2016 and I’m excited about a new year! I ordered my Erin Condren Life Planner. This planner helps keep me organized! It should be here next week.

Since I’m looking back over the past year, I decided to pick my favorite outfits from January through December 2015.

I think my favorite month was June when I did my 26 Days of Summer Fashion. I love summer!

Okay, here is What I Wore from January through December!

what-i-wore-year-reviewJanuary-December 2015

what-i-wore-year-reviewI definitely want to say THANK YOU to each of you for being a part of the Grace + Beauty community and for sharing it with other women. I’m so thankful for you!!!

Are you ready for 2016?

Beauty for the Heart~~The end of a year is a good time to take inventory of our spiritual life too.

Have I grown in my relationship with the the Lord? Am I hanging on to any bitterness?? Is there sin in my life that I need to let go of and ask for forgiveness?

Let’s begin the New Year with Hope!

But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

  31. I enjoy seeing your clothing styles although I am in the over 50 category:) I noticed you got an Erin Condren planner. I really love mine. When it comes to the calendar/planner, I am still a paper/pencil girl. I am on my 5th year with EC.
    Love your Sunday faith posts.

  33. Am interested in the Bible study on hope. Been going through a lot when I found out that my 19 year old daughter has an eating disorder.

  34. Thanks for the year in review. 🙂 I love the planner. I have looked at that system before, and it seems like a really good one. I stuck to my binder style planner, though.

    I would like information on the Bible study. 🙂 Thanks!

  35. Hi, Cyndi. I left a comment the day you announced it, but have not received any info on it. Thanks so much. I’m really looking forward to this study.

  36. Thank you so much for your lovely outfits for 2015. I have learned many things and broadened my fashion horizons, so to speak. You have a beautiful style and precious spirit. Thank you for sharing it with all of us

    I would love to receive your study on hope, please.

    Praying for many blessings on you and yours for 2016.

  37. I’ll be 40 in 2016 and I like looking at what you wear because you’re very classy and I admire that. I also need to be closer to Jesus so I’d love to be a part of your Bible study.

  38. Interested in the Bible study. Also have been searching the blog to no avail for the name of the new volumizer. I’m thinking Matrix but can’t find that post for anything. Happy New Year!

  39. Cyndi – I am interested in your study on Hope! It’s so neat how the Lord has confirmed over and over to me recently that Hope is my “One Word” (instead of multiple resolutions) for 2016. On another note – I just wanted to let you know how thankful I am for your blog. I recently lost 65# and didn’t know how to pull together outfits since I had always dressed to blend in to the background. My daughter sent me your link and it has helped me immensely – God is so good to me!

  40. Cyndi –

    I see that most comments are about bible study and I am interested in that too. But one thing I would also like you to add is a home category. DIY tips, decorating, etc….

    Love your website and check it daily!

    Thanks and looking forward to 2016

  41. Please include me in your upcoming Bible study. Just came across your blog today via Pinterest. I am so glad! Thank you!

  42. I am so thankful I found your blog. Love all the tips on fashion and health. I would like the info on the Hope bible study. Thanks for all you do!
