My mom suggested something that I have actually been thinking for quite some time. Our blog is simply to diverse. We don't have a specific enough theme. A person might come here looking for a certain thing, find it, but then never come back because 90 percent of the posts they aren't interested in.
So, what does this mean? Well, it means we are breaking up...sort of. Jenn and I started this blog together, but she just isn't in the right place for devoting the time to it right now, which I totally get and respect, so instead of trying to keep this blog going on my own, I'm starting a new blog.
Actually, I'm not starting a new blog so much as reviving an old one. I once had an etsy shop called Lovely You where I sold jewelry that I made from upcycled vintage pieces, and a blog that went along with it. It didn't last very long though and has been sitting untouched for a few years.
As I was thinking about the new direction I wanted to take in blogging it seemed completely perfect. My job other than being a mom is as a cosmetologist, two of my favorite hobbies are fashion and jewelry, and I just really love pretty things!
So, If you have any interest in hair tutorials, fashion and makeup tips, or in learning how to make jewelry, come hang out with me over at Lovely You! It's still a work in progress, but it is up and running.
I've transferred over a few of my favorite posts from here and have a few new ones already waiting for you including instructions on how to make your own bracelets such as this one. And a video where I get eaten by mosquitoes, but I talk about my top 5 beauty secret weapons for busy moms!
And for those of you that have no interest in that kind of stuff, I will still be popping in here from time to time with my motherhood stories and occasional non beauty/fashion related crafts, it just won't be my main focus anymore.
Thanks for all your support of this blog! Here's to new adventures!
