What’s in a Name?

 So some of you may have noticed a major change over here *cough* new name *cough* but what you may not know is the reason for the change. I’ve been contemplating changing my major for a while now. To be honest, the possibility of switching my major from teaching to an entirely different ball game scares the crap out of me. My entire life all I’ve wanted to be is a teacher. I have such a passion for working with children that I can’t imagine doing anything else for the rest of my life and actually being content. I’m not quite sure yet if I am going to switch majors or if I did what I would switch to but all of this undecidedness (yes, I’m making up words now) brought upon the feeling that I should change my blog name, just in case.

It’s taken me a while to figure out what I wanted to rename my blog. Throughout the process I toyed around with tons of different names and word combination until one day it just hit me! Ah ha, Beauty and the Blog. Beauty and the Blog… it was perfect. I loved the ring to it and it had a sweet but subtle nod to my beloved Disney. Well that vision came crashing down real quick when I found out that the domain already been bought (not being used, gurrrr, but just already owned by someone else) and also when I noticed it was the name of Sephora’s blog. So there I was, back at the drawing board. I wasn’t literally at a drawing board of course; I was actually lying on my bed watching YouTube videos and Jersey Shore simultaneously. Don’t act like you’re not impressed! I laid there on my bed immersed in trashy television and beauty videos thinking about nothing at all and then BAM! It just hit me! And this time I loved the name even more… Beauty and the Sweets. It has just the right amount of catchiness, corniness, and Disney. Basically it’s me summed up in four words.

So at the end of it all I don’t yet know what I’m going to do with the rest of my life but I do have a new website name (did you see the .com part?! did ya, did ya?!) and a pretty darn good one at that.

I’ll be working on a new layout and theme to go along with my name change soon but for now I’ll have this temporary banner up until I design my logo and get everything else in order. I hope that you all will like the new changes as much as I will. In the words of Porky Pig, th – th– that’s all folks.

Have a wonderful Sunday!
