The Flock's Top 10 of 2015

Talia Wischmann

'Tis the season for year-end roundups, and we thought we ought to participate. It's been a weird year for all of us with job changes, cross-country moves, and a new baby. But we're still here, just posting a little less than we'd like to while we work out and prioritize all that stressful life stuff. And while it wasn't super frequent, we wrote pieces that were fun, important, silly and meaningful in 2015, and these were the most popular ten.

  1. Building A Capsule Wardrobe -  Kate wrote about her transition from packed-to-the-gills closet to capsule wardrobe. 
  2. Being a Mom Is Not Everything - Parenting is wonderful, but having interests outside of mommyhood is pretty great too.  
  3. Your Minimalist Pixie Dream Girl Does Not Exist - Talia wrote a response to this diatribe about minimalist bloggers.
  4. 1998 - A candid piece by Kate about her own experience with abortion.
  5. Let's Talk About Push Presents - Talia offers some alternatives to diamond rings and new cars for when your special someone pushes a baby through her lady parts. 
  6. Woman On The Street - An experience that we've written about too many times, Alex wrote about street harassment.
  7. The Most Easy Up-Do - Thanks to Sally McGraw of Already Pretty for sharing this post with her audience. Talia created a super easy up-do option attained with just a curling iron and a stretchy headband.
  8. Shared Custody - Parenting is hard. Sharing custody is harder.
  9. Taking Risks To Follow Dreams - Perhaps more antagonistic than most of what we write (or so I was told), it's hard to keep hearing that you need to stop complaining and take more risks.
  10. Selfie Culture - Talia explores why it's okay to take and post a selfie (or five) and not feel bad about it.
