Hi, friends! Daisy and I wanted to wish you all a very Happy New Year! Thanks to everyone who visited Sand, Sun, & Messy Buns in our first few months of blogging. It's been fun getting to know you better, and we appreciate each and every person that has stopped by.

We thought it would be fun to do a round-up post and share what was most popular around here this year. Since so many of our readers come from Pinterest, here are the top items you were repinning:
Top Pinterest Repins:
- Ortakoy Mosque by Isabella Pfenninger
- Peak of Bohey Dulang in Malaysia by Nora Carol Photography
- Bora, Bora
- Auxerre, France
- Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, Iceland
Apparently a lot of you are dreaming of travel because all of our top pins were of beautiful travel destinations!
Pinterest is our favorite, so it's where we spend most of our time and where we feel like we get to know you best. We love seeing what everyone is pinning!
(You can follow us on Pinterest here.) Maybe we'll branch out in 2016 and work on posting on our Instagram more often?
Popular Blog Posts:
From the blog, our most pinned posts were the following:
We posted lots of articles on Divine Caroline (now more.com). Daisy shared My Top 10 Tricks to Avoid Split Ends, The Ultimate Taylor Swift-Style Guide to Fall Fashion, The 5 Easy Makeup Tricks I Use to Fake Looking Awake, and My 8 Must-Do Tips to Prepare for Homecoming.
I wrote 7 Creative Ways to Make Plastic Surgery More Affordable, 10 Skincare Tips to Add to Your Beauty Routine ASAP, and 5 Ways I Motivate Myself to Get Moving and Stay Fit. (Apparently we like using numbers in our titles when we post there!)
What would you like to see more of in 2016? Any specific kind of makeup tutorials? Hair tutorials? Let us know in the comments so we can start taking pictures. 🙂

We want to say a very special thank you to the companies that helped Daisy out by sponsoring her hair and makeup posts this year. Thank you to Ulta Beauty, People Stylewatch, Rodale's, PLANT, Stewart & Claire, DERMAFLASH, and Herbivore Botanicals.
Here's wishing you lots of health, happiness, and success in 2016! We're excited for what's to come and hope to see more of you in the New Year.
