• New Year New Vibes…

    Happy New Year my loves!!! IT’S BLOODY 2018 SERIOUSLY WHERE DID 2017 GO?! I have so much to talk about honestly! I have been on a break from my blog – it wasn’t a long break but still it was S-O-G-O-O-D. I feel like blogmas really took it out of my and for some reason really knocked my confidence. I was concentrating so much on getting a blog post up every day that I let the quality of my blog and its photography etc decrease and I have let myself down big time.
    For example, I have been really debating posting this photo because I don’t like the photography. But I am getting a new camera lens soon, and I have been Pinteresting (find it here) my heart out for new ideas and I am going to make my photography different. I can’t wait to see what 2018 will bring to my life AND my blog because there is going to be a lot of change and a lot happening that will just only better it.
    I welcomed the New Year with my better half and our friends. We played monopoly ~ boys v girls ~ and the boys won… but the girls TOTALLY deserved to win!! We had some beverages – obvs – and then at midnight we got the sparklers out. It was lush and to welcome the new year with new friends was awesome.
    As said, a lot will be happening this year – 2018 WILL BE WHERE ITS AT!! From now to June I will be mainly focusing on my school work as I have the dreaded A-Level exams and I also have a university interview in a few weeks ~~ EEEK! But after that I am FREEEE for the whole summer and that is when my blog = my priority. That doesn’t mean I won’t be blogging don’t worry! I will just be blogging with less of a routine and my school work will take a priority for now.
    I am also planning to go travelling a lot this summer. I am SUPER excited for this as we have just booked to go to Croatia for two weeks, and then we are also planning to go Interailling in July… Imagine the Instagrams I will get out of that!! I will then be starting university at the beginning of September. It will be a roller-coaster as I am already feeling so ready for it yet it also makes me really anxious. Only time will tell.
    Another change that has already happened is my blog! Yes! A lot of change has already happened! If you saw my Instagram post you would know I have an announcement and TBH I probably have led you on a bit but my blog is no longer Emily Clare Beauty… I have ditched the ‘Beauty’ bit. So welcome to my blog ‘Emily Clare’. Why have I gotten rid of this?! With everything that is happening on my blog this year it will not be solely a beauty blog anymore. It will have more fashion, lifestyle, travel and random blog posts so the name won’t relate. The URL is staying www.emilyclarebeauty.com because I am not a tech guru and haven’t worked that one out yet (if you know how to change it HIT ME UP). My instagram and twitter will be remaining what they are because I don’t want to over-complicate things yet. I have also topped this off with a new header ^^ what do you think??
    I hope you had a lovely Christmas and here is to an AMAZING 2018!
    Have you got any major plans for this year?!

          I was terrified too. I didn’t tell anyone when I first started. I still cringe at my first videos but you start to feel more comfortable! It takes time 👍🏻

      Change is good!!! For the domains: you can still have both domains. Just purchase the new domain name and keep the old one as well til the reg runs out. That way they both can still be directed to the same place til people get used to the name change!

        I might do that, however I am under the Premium wordpress account so I am not sure whether it would work

      I’m in the process of revamping my blog myself! 🙂 when I tried to change my URL/ domain name, i was told by bluehost that I have to repurchase a new domain… hope this helps!

      I relate to this so much! I changed my blog from a beauty blog to a general account!
      I love your content though so you’ve gained a new reader❤️
