Your Favorite Posts from the last two years of Thoroughly Contemporary

Sharing is caring!

I tend to say Thoroughly Contemporary started on June 1st, as that’s the day I “launched” it on social media. But the day the first post went live? May 24, 2018. So because we are right in between those dates, it seems like the perfect time to celebrate this little blog’s anniversary. 

As a way to celebrate this blog, it made sense to share what have been your favorite posts of the last two years. 

Here are the top 10 posts ever, from least popular (but still really popular) to most popular of all. Let’s go!

Top Blog Posts - Target Clothing Try On

I love Target so it made sense that if I was going to try my hand at a try on post it would be there. I’m never going to be one of those bloggers that tries on twenty different outfits in one post. No offense to them, it’s just not my style. Instead I shared what I would realistically try on, and what I actually bought.

Top Blog Posts - Testing Clean Beauty

At the time that I wrote this post I had been reading a lot of other blog posts and watching youtubers talk about clean beauty products. I decided to try out some of the products they recommended. My beauty collection is by no means all “clean” but I still really love all of these products, and I still use this toner on the daily.

Top Blog Posts - Pastel Ikea Hack

On a trip to Ikea I picked up one of their mini storage chests. I knew I wanted to do something to it, but I didn’t know what. One day I decided to paint it various pastel colors and share it on the blog. It was a super simple DIY, but Pinterest seems to love this post. I do love crafting, though I don’t do it tons. I kind of have to wait until the inspiration strikes. But I can always share when I do make something, as you all seem to like it!

1. 10 Tips for a Stress Free Walt Disney World Vacation

Post from: June 2018, find it here

Best Blog Posts - Tips for a stress free Disney vacation

I’m so glad this is the most popular post on the blog. It’s actually one of my favorites. I remember feeling so much pride in this post when I first published it. It was a really early post for me and I had worked very hard on it. Plus it’s about Disney World so of course I love it. The title kind of explains itself; I complied some things I had learned from my experiences with Disney and what will make things run a little smoother. 


In closing

I just want to say if you’ve been around since the beginning, popped in a couple of times over the years, or if this is your first time here: THANK YOU. The blog has stayed in existence because of readers like you. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate each and every one of you. 

It looks like you guys like Disney and makeup, which is good because I do too! It also looks like I should sprinkle in DIY posts and clothing try ons here and there. Sound good?

Keep in mind if you ever want to suggest a post or tell me to keep something coming you can always leave a comment or send me a message. 

Again thank you, and here’s to the next two years!
