The Best of Mimi Rose & Me in 2019

It’s almost the end of year and the end of the decade. But before we move into a fresh new era I just wanted to take the time to thank every single person who has read my blog over the past year. I will be forever grateful that I have a place for me to share snippets of my life as a work from home mama and that many of my posts are met with such positivity. 

Starting this little ole blog back in 2015 has to be one of the best decisions that I have ever made, and I never imagined how much it would change my life for the better. Starting my very own business was something that I only dreamed of, and now I have been girl bossing it up as self employed for two years now. It’s been an amazing adventure so far and I want it to continue with much more success.

To close out the end of the year, I thought I’d do a best of Mimi Rose & Me in 2019 and share some of the highlights and most popular posts! Are you ready?
  1. In one year my little ole blog has had over 264,000 page views, that’s pretty insane!
  2. The lovely Franca from A Moment with Franca has kindly asked me to co-host her lovely link ups. I love taking part as it always makes me feel good and coming across so many amazing writers is real privilege.
  3. The beautiful Becky from Cuddle Fairy has welcomed me into her amazing community and has shown me that in a time of need there is always someone somewhere willing to help you when you need it.
  4. I have worked with some amazing brands this year such as Jessops, Desenio, Rydale, Petplan and Sodastream who allowed me to continue making an income from my blog. I think it’s pretty incredible to work alongside brands who have to same vision as me and I’m forever grateful for every single opportunity.
The Best of Mimi Rose & Me in 2019. 

Yes, I Know My Daughter Needs a Sibling - my personal blog posts are always my most popular and this year we have touched on fertility struggles a lot more than in previous years. I have always found it cathartic to write about your emotions and feelings. By sharing some of my struggles and worries during our fertility struggles has been like a kind of therapy and will hopefully resonate with someone.

How I Lost a Stone in Four Weeks - In 2019 was the year that I decided to make some lifestyle changes and feature a lot of healthy living and weight loss recipes on my blog. It’s hard not to see why this one is so popular and you really can lose a stone in four weeks without even trying.

Can We Keep Our Children Safe on YouTube - A story in the media encouraged me to write this post and delves into the issues of screen time and asks whether our children are safe anymore. 

A Letter To My Sister on Her Wedding Day - This one was a bit of an emotional one and I was pretty much crying all the time. Why have I become so emotional over the years, but still if you fancy a little blub then head on over. I proudly stood by my sister as she married her best friend and it made me the happiest sister in the world.

How To Support Someone with Fertility Problems - This year marked a big milestone in our second fertility journey and it was something that we kept close to our hearts. After the birth of our daughter we started to tell people and the whole world through this blog about our fertility problems, along the way felt some kind of comfort knowing that it can happen to anyone.

Memories for Life with Jessops -So this one was an AD but this was a brand that I enjoyed collaborating with. As a blogger I love taking photographs and was able to showcase them in such a beautiful way in this blog post.

5 Years of Amelia Rose - This post was all about my baby girl turning five years old! Five years of amazing adventures, five years of moments that I will remember and cherish as if they happened a moment a go. Five wonderful years of loving my little miracle.

Four Reasons to Set Achievable Goals - There just seems to be something about these posts that so many people love. As much as I love blogging, at times it can really knock your confidence and self worth. With the constant pressure to do this, to do that became too much and I even questioned whether I am enough. It was at this point that I realised that I needed time away and spending time with my family was just what I needed. It was time to set some goals and action them. 

Things I've Learned in My First Year as a School Run Mum - In 2019 my daughter completed her first year of school and I managed to make it through to the end of my first year as a school run mum. It was a big learning curve for the both of us. Now that she is in year one we are pretty much bossing it, but this post shares things I have learned. 

Styling a Farmhouse Kitchen - As many of you know we have been wanting to renovate our kitchen for some time, but for one reason or another we never seemed to get around to actually beginning. So over the summer we decided it was time to bite the bullet and begin our kitchen renovation, this post shares how we styled a farmhouse kitchen.

What's in store for 2020? 

Well, expect some big things for 2020! There is going to be a big focus on changing my mindset, self-care and productivity as well as sharing some of our personal moments. I want to try and leave my comfort zone with my blog and make some genuine connections to help and empower others to be the best version of themselves. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for supporting Mimi Rose & Me. I really appreciate every single one of you who is taken the time to come on over to support us. You are the best. See you in 2020!!!
