Blog Re-Brand


Going from the old..

To the new..

Sad to see my old design and name go but as you can see my blog has had some changes - the new name is You're My Sunshine On A Cloudy Day and my domain will be :)

So, I thought long and hard on a name, as many of you will know from Twitter. Even got you guys involved in a post to vote which you can see here. Just a huge thank you for all your great suggestions and help etc, and there were some really good ones. It was a real tough choice. I did want to go for something still mummy related as this is a big part of my blogging identity.

I have said that I wanted it to still be personal and mummy related, just not quite so 'yummy mummy' as I am far from yummy! The original name was just a spur of the moment idea when I initially started my blog, however I didn't want it to stick hence the name change happening now. I also got many compliments on my header, but I wasn't happy with it so yes I done it and changed the name.

How I Came Up With The Name?

One evening, I was going through my 100's of notes on my iPhone to have a clear out when I came across a list of phrases from 2012 when planning a tattoo. Anyways, I just scrolled right down the big list and there it was, the last one. Something just hit me, one of those feelings when I just knew that was it :)

Why The Name Choice?

So, as I just said I got that feeling in the pit of my stomach when I saw it.

I wasn't going to keep the picture of the mum and boy, however I couldn't let it go so I had to get the designer to put it and frankly I think she has done the most amazing job. If you read my blog you will know that Corey, my 3 year old cheeky monkey is my whole entire world and he is my sunshine on a cloudy day. The one person who can make my whole entire day turn around from bad to good with just a smile. If I am ever crying (usually at soaps - I am a sucker!) then he will always give me a cuddle and a kiss. What a sweetie!

This blog title now has a very personal and mummy touch to it, so makes my little blog all the more special to me :)

That Is It..

I have managed to get Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and BlogLovin already sorted - so if you don't already follow it would mean a lot to me if you clicked the links down below and did so :)

I guess that is it, let me know what you think of the new design and name, would love to know your thoughts!
