Happy New Year! Top 10 Posts for 2011

I hope you’re enjoying what’s left of the holidays! I’m back from a week-long reunion with my husband’s extended family myself and have only just settled in front of my computer. Naturally I couldn’t help but check in to see how you’re all doing.  🙂

(Well I’m glad I did because I was greeted by the dreaded 500 Bandwidth Limit Exceeded white screen when I loaded this site! Thankfully my trusty web host was around to fix the problem straightaway.)

Before we usher in the new year, let’s take a look back at your favorite posts for 2011. This is based on unique page views and length of stay. (Thank you, Google Analytics, for the data.) Here we go:

10. Girly and Sweet Japanese Wedding Dresses 

Japanese wedding magazines like Zexy and Non-no More Weddings (sent to me by my dad who was living in Japan at the time) saw me through my wedding planning in 2002 and it was then when I discovered how pretty and playful their bridal dresses are! This post features a selection of 2011 dresses from some of my favorite Tokyo brands.
