I look forward to sitting down in December and really reflecting on my vision for the next year both personally, professionally, and here on I’m Fixin’ To. For my content I create for this space, I typically map out a general plan for each month with topics I’d like to cover, the types of photos I want captured, and any opportunities to collaborate with brands, local businesses, and/or other writers. One of my proudest moments is watching how my goal of creating more travel content about North Carolina has been reflected since I started writing these posts in 2017. You can also find the 2018 most popular posts here. Check out my most popular blog posts of 2019 below.

Popular Outfits from 2018
It was in this post that I confessed that I’m not *actually* a fashion blogger. However, I was rather shocked to see that this post was the second most popular posts of 2019. I consider my style to be casual and definitely not trendy, but there are times where I like to glam it up. I think this post does a good job of capturing my varying style. P.S. almost all styles are still available online.
