I hope you’re having a wonderful week so far! Today I am bringing you a post that is a bit different from what I usually post. It is going to be my most popular posts and a little bit of an update of everything that’s been happening lately!
I had no idea this semester was going to be so hectic! I have to admit that. I have no idea when was the last time I read all of my blogging pals’ blogs. So, this is my way of saying I am so sorry, and I promise I will catch up on everything. Let me just give a quick shoutout to my girls: Kay from ShoesAndGlitter, Anne from LindaLibraLoca and Shireen from ReflectionOfSanity.
I know there are a lot more of you guys there, and I love all of your blogs, and I will catch up on them, I promise! Just let me fix my stuff first 😀
So, you may or may not know, I took a course on Internet Marketing. I loved it! It was such a great experience, I’ve learned so much and I can’t wait to start applying my knowledge to my blog. Also, I am really thinking of starting kind of a freelance business (that’s a big statement, right?) using everything I’ve learned, including Google Analytics reports and Google Adwords campaigns. If you, or anyone you know, might be interested in working with me, do let me know.
Anyways, I had an exam on Saturday, which I had to pass in order to be able to get a certificate for this course, and I passed it! However, I did study a LOT for that for the past few weeks, plus I had a lot of uni work, and that was so hectic 😀
I know yesterday was supposed to be the day I upload my Xmas DIY, and I promise I will do that, but it will most likely be up on Thursday or Friday, so make sure you don’t wrap all of your Xmas presents, because I have some really cool ideas for you. I still have a mid-term on Thursday, and I’m going home right after that for the holidays, and I have a paper due on Friday. Hopefully I’ll do everything in time.
Today, my mom came to see me, and went to the Zagreb main square, and all the Christmas markets in Zagreb, so I hope you don’t mind a few Christmas photos in this post.
I have most of my presents sorted out, which I thought I was going to have to do last minute, but I did it! And I’m really happy with everything I bought. I did plan on doing a gift guide, but people I buy for also read my blog, so I didn’t want to spoil it for them 😀 Okay, now onto my Top 10 posts!
Top 10 posts on BeautyPepTalk.com
The reason why I decided to do this is because the only reason these are so popular is because of organic search via Google, and most (if not all) of them are on the first page of Google search for relevant keywords. Now let’s start the countdown from 10 to 1!
I posted this on October 24th 2016, and it gained a lot of attention. More so in Croatian, but the English version was also really popular. In this post I am talking about some of the things I ordered on eBay, plus 2 really cool ways of earning/saving money online. You can still use both of these!
Awesome people at FeelUnique decided to send me the ENTIRE @moomooi collection! This collection is probably the cutes I’ve ever seen, so I shared my opinions, and it gained quite a lot of attention. This is also the first (and only :D:D) post that made some affiliate income for me (not enough to get the payment though, LOL), so I had to include it here!
I am just realizing, I should really work on SEO for this post, that’s a really bad cover photo, haha, but it somehow got a pretty decent amount of views. I basically wrote about the Essence brushes in my collection, what I like/don’t like about them, how they perform, if they shed, are they difficult to wash, etc. I think I did a pretty good job on this one, so do check it out 🙂
That’s a really bad post altogether 😀 I should really consider writing a full review of the Manhattan powder, because people seem to search it a lot, and I’m gaining a lot of traffic on this post, but I do see that it’s really bad 😀 It was posted a really long time ago, so that’s my excuse! I posted this one on February 19th, 2014! Wow, right?
This product is basically how I got into the brow game. All I used prior to this was Essence brow powder, which I still really like! Considering I didn’t use many different brow products, I didn’t have anything to compare it to, but I did my best to show you what this product is and how it performs.
This was one of the first PR packages (if not the very first) I ever got, and people seem to really like this post. I haven’t been using this palette a lot, though, but I will try and incorporate these eyeshadows in my Christmas or New Year’s look.
I am still a huge fan of Eveline Cosmetics. I did a bit of a round up in this post, featuring all the products by Eveline that I own. I made a few of these ‘brand review’ posts, but this one is geting the most attention by far!
This is by far one of my favorite purifying masks, and I swear by it. I recommend it to anyone and everyone! I am really happy people are really seeing this post and finding out about this amazing product!
I wrote this post not even realizing how popular it was going to be. It really does get a lot of organic traffic, when I didn’t even know about this brand prior to owning this product. However, this is a really cheap alternative to all the products out there, and it’s really worth mentioning 🙂
To be completely honest, I knew this was a really popular product, but I was quite convinced I was late to the whole thing, since I’ve posted this on September 12th. However, this is really popular still, and people search for it a lot!
Okay, okay, I lied. There are 11 posts I wanted to mention, but I do feel like they really are worth mentioning. This post is number 1 on my blog, and I get traffic searching for a Benefit Gimme Brow dupe on a daily basis, with at least 20 hits per day! I think that is totally awesome, I was the first result on Google for this post (not sure if I still am), but I am really proud of this post!
And that’s it for this post! What is your favorite post on my blog? What post would you like me to write? Do these surprise you? Is there a post you’d like me to write? What is the most popular post on your blog (if you have one)?
Thank you for reading!
See you soon x
