I'm changing the name of this blog. (+ giveaway winner!)

How's that for a blog title? I needed to get your attention! ;) 

Since this blog has had a "changes" theme this week, why not one more? This is something I've thought about for a long, long time. I was a senior in college, I believe, when I came up with the name, "Style Me Swanky." The bottom line is that my tastes and preferences have changed a huge amount since then. I'm really a lot different than I was then, which is a normal product of growth, right? With each new day, we have new experiences that shape us into different people than we were the day before. That's life. And just as my pick in clothing has gone from brights to neutrals, my pick in blog name has gone from Style Me Swanky to...

Holy City Chic.

Definitely inspired by our move back to Charleston (the "Holy City"), this name came to me randomly one night while laying in bed. I just feel that it works. I've thought about it for a while and I still prefer it to any others I've come up with. This is a lifestyle blog—not just fashion, not just beauty, not just home interiors (those posts will start coming more often!). I needed a name that encompasses all of those things. Something that is consistent with what I strive to be, which—if we're being honest—is chic, after all. And not just in clothing choices, but in all facets of life.

I realize changing a website name can add confusion, especially since I've had my blog name for quite a handful of years now, but I am going to try and make this transition as smooth as possible. My current URL will just forward to the new one. My older posts will still remain in the same place. The content will stay the same, except I do have some fun ideas for making it better! 

The new URL will be holycitychic.com, so go ahead and take mental note! The actual change will take place one day next week.... errr... I don't know which day. Let's just go with it. What do ya say? 

I also wanted to announce that the La Roche Posay giveaway is....

  4. I love the new name! Only downfall will be anything someone has pinned from your blog will no longer go to your blog from Pinterest. :-( I learned this the hard way when I bought a new URL for my blog.
