A Look Back At 2016

Original post here..

As I think about what 2017 means for The Clydescope and what content I want to create, I’ve taken a look back at my posts from the past year. I saw that Kelly in the City posted a “year in review” where she shared her blog posts from the year, and it made me want to do the same. I give myself a lot of shit for not keeping up a consistent schedule and for not working hard enough…but you know what?

I created some AWESOME blog posts in 2016.

This year was so much fun. I travelled, I was cozy at home, I discovered new beauty products, and I did a lot of soul-searching. By going all the way back to January 2016, I realized that I LOVE my blog. I have grown so much as a blogger and as a person, and The Clydescope serves as a record of that growth. I am so excited to look back in a year and feel even more proud of what I’ve built!

I also realized how bizarre blogging is. I put so much work into one post, and then it feels like it disappears forever. This kind of annual recap is a great way for me to resurface content that I worked my butt off to create, and to share some of my favourite memories with you!

In 2016…

I found THE best deodorant in the world.

I played in the rain.

I decided to remove a certain phrase from my vocabulary.


I reflected on my favourite holiday traditions. 

Pom hats were my favourite accessory.
