Time For Change

It's been a lot of blabbing and not much blogging this past week-ish, sorry, but I'm honestly still reeling from all your comments on my most recent post. So instead of carrying on, I've used this last week to step back and thoroughly examine the kind of content I want to be posting. I believe in having a solid game plan as it helps keep me focused and passionate about what I'm doing. So, a few quick updates for you today...

I excitedly gave the blog an overhaul & re-brand. I still have lots to do, but it's a start and I love how clean and content focused this new layout is. For me, change is like a breath of fresh air and I'm soooo craving it. As for the blogging portion?! I'd like a little less "me" on this space. Sometimes, if I can be frank, being in front of the camera turns me into a bit of a stress case. I still intend to post outfits and daily snaps it just won't be the heart of the blog anymore. Instead, I'm envisioning a blog filled with beautifully curated content and a healthy mix of home decor, recipes, fashion and lifestyle.

So what can you expect? Well, for the month of June I'll be introducing several new features as well as working with two guest editors, more on that soon. I'm starting a monthly blogging series which will begin the last week of July. Yay! I get so many emails asking for blogging tips and I can't wait to start sharing them here. Lastly, I'm cooking up a fun feature where I'll be interviewing some amazingly talented & creative woman. Lots of fun stuff to look forward to! As always, thank you for your wonderful support! xo

PS - I'll be picking & announcing the Belle Hibou giveaway shortly via Twitter!

  9. I think about rebranding and starting over, too, from time to time. But with my grad school schedule, I usually decide to just wait it out and get to it later. Someday! I would love to include more food and fitness into my blog. We'll see. Excited to see your new content, though!
