Saying Good Bye To 2016
Another year has flown by so quickly that it always leaves you questioning where the time went. My twenties seemed like they lasted forever but then again I went to so many parties that I couldn’t remember the day of the week. Fast forward to now where I’m watching my child grow so rapidly with the years flying right before me and I can’t keep seem to keep track. I turn 30 every year and I’m starting to lose count on how many times that’s been which is either because I’m getting old or I just want to stop counting. This digital journey has been so surreal for me and my family in 2016 and I wanted to highlight some amazing moments with you all.
This was one hell of a year from my career to my family. I accomplished some major goals and managed to get knocked up with my second child this year. We started our YouTube channel which I will be dedicated to growing in 2017. Scout is such a funny and personable kid that I thought it would be a natural transition for us to get into videos. From vlogs to fashion to beauty I would like the STC channel to be an outlet that you can relate to. I want to create raw videos that capture moments when I look a hotmess but I also want to create content that you can learn from. Here is a round-up of some of our best videos of 2016.

I started blogging in May of 2014 and considering this was only our second year we made some incredible accomplishments. I was fortunate enough to be featured in Marie Claire Magazine, Allure, Instyle and Parents Mag. Seeing your photos in magazine that you read is always a crazy experience! We teamed with some incredible brands such as Nexxus, Disney, Hawaiian Airlines, Perricone MD, Suave, Old Navy, Gap, Barney’s, The Cut and M Missioni to name a few. We also have a kick-ass agent by the name of Jessy Grossman who has worked tirelessly for us and we can’t thank her enough. It’s so important to have someone in your corner that pushes for you no matter how stressful things get. Here are some of our most popular sponsored campaigns this year.
Scout turned 5 this year which has been one of my favorite years to date! She’s so funny and witty and we can chat for hours. Maybe because she talks more than I do but it’s entertaining to say the least. We were very fortunate to travel a lot this year and spend some quality time together. She didn’t start Kindergarten until the fall so it was easier to take off whenever we wanted. We took a month back in March and traveled to Melbourne, Sydney and Bali which was an amazing experience! It’s the furthest I traveled with LS and she was amazing on the plane. She slept 10 hours on the way to Melbourne which was shocking since I hardly slept at all! We also had the chance to experience some fun mother daughter style posts together. Here are our most popular posts this year.
I love to snapchat about my routines and regimes and I’m hoping to do a lot more of that in 2017. If you have any suggestions, feel free to let us know what you would like to read or watch from us. Here is a round up of our most popular read posts in lifestyle.
Happy New Year everyone! It’s been such an amazing year getting to know you and being supported by such a strong community. You guys inspire me to do what I love for a living and I hope I can always return the favor through our social platforms. Can’t wait to continue this journey into 2017!
