May Top Ten – The Most Popular Items On Hat On The Map

Tomorrow is June, how did that happen? 2019 is flying by! Now that May is over I am back for another monthly round up of the most popular items on my blog. I love these posts because I get to look back on the month and take a deep dive into what items you guys really loved.

To no surprise, my top retailer for the month of May was once again Amazon. I love amazon, you love amazon, we all love amazon. Amazon is always going to be a top seller. But that certainly doesn’t mean that I will stop sharing my favorite items from places like Nordstrom, Abercrombie, American Eagle and Old Navy!

This past month I have shared a ton of beach style and vacation outfits. From the looks of my most popular items that is exactly what you were looking for. Now all I can think about is planning a really awesome exotic beach vacation, who’s with me? Okay, now let’s talk about the most popular items on my blog, the liketoknow.it app and my Instagram.

The Most Popular Items For May

To shop any of the top items, simply click on the picture and it will take you to the site to purchase! If you love these best of posts and want to know how I obtain this information, then scroll down to the bottom of the post I explain it all there!

Okay, now lets talk all things the behind the scenes.

I use an affiliate program (that most bloggers use) called rewardStyle you are probably familiar with its customer facing app, liketoknow.it . Because I use this service I do have access to data analytics, this means I can track what items are clicked on and purchased. What I cannot see is who clicked on the link or what additional items might have been purchased. For instance, say you click on my favorite lipstick and it takes you to the Ulta site, all I am able to see if that someone made a purchase at Ulta using my lipstick link. Does that make sense?

I loveeeee deep diving into my analytics because I genuinely want to bring you products that you love at a price point that is affordable for everyone!

Shopping through my links can be an extra step for you, but please know it makes all the difference to me. Every purchase made from the liketoknow.it app, my instagram or my blog is how I am able to continue sharing great deals, try on sessions, and everything else. All of that is to say, shopping through my links does not cost you anything additional (the item is the same price), the retailer will just pay me a very small cut since I am the one that referred you.

I am so grateful when you shop through my links and give me credit for helping you find a new piece for your wardrobe! At the end of the day, I hope you use my blog as a resource for all the best deals and amazon finds. If you are ever on the hunt for something or looking for a great deal, please don’t be afraid to ask, I would love to help.

Happy June! XOXO

Backpack Purses – My Favorite Summer Trend

Backpack Purses – My Favorite Summer Trend

Fashion and accessories are always changing and every season brings us a new trend to get excited about. This summer, the trend that I am most excited about are backpack purses. Turns out backpacks are not just for the classroom anymore. This trend first popped up on my Instagram during festival season and now I see cute backpack purses everywhere!

Backpack Purses

I’ve rounded up my favorite backpack purse options of all sizes and prices below! Just hover over each picture to see the price of the bag. All of the listed options are under $100!

The best part about this backpack trend is that it’s not just a purse it can be a laptop bag, diaper bag, carry on, the options are endless. Like, my friend, John C. Reilly said in Step Brothers, ” So much room for activities”. Turns out this quote isn’t really that relevant, I just really love the movie Step Brothers.

Backpack purses are the perfect bag for a weekend on the go. This past weekend we visited some of our best friends in one of my favorite cities, Denver. We had the best time! We drank all the drinks and ate all the food and just had a really great time. I brought my brand new backpack purse along for the ride and was very happy with my new purchase.

I used my backpack purse the entire time we were in Denver and I have to tell you, I am hooked. Not only is it a super cute trend but it’s also so much more comfortable than a large purse.

What do you think about this trend? Are you excited about it or do you think backpacks belong in the classroom? Leave your thoughts in the comments below! XOXO
