Nestylsmart is no longer my baby. It has been up and semi running for 2 years now and I have to admit that it has been harder than I thought to run a blog whilst having a job and a life, but I have loved every minute of it.
I’ve now decided that its time for an upgrade which, if I’m honest, I have always been wary of! One of the things that I loved about my blog was that it was real, a bit like me. It was never going to be an all singing and dancing blog that was styled to perfection for many reasons. Firstly, I consider myself a writer, not an I.T specialist, so designing an eye-catching blog was never on the cards. I am also not the girl that you will see posing at various landmarks around the North East of England; again, I am not a model, I have approximately 2 poses and I really can’t, and don’t, want to pout!
I am simply a girl that loves fashion and writing, so I thought 'why not combine the two?'. I would like to think there is more to me than what I wear and my opinion of fashion, which is why I’ve decided to bring in a lifestyle section; this will not be lifestyle in the form of Gwyneth Paltrow or Blake Lively, there will be no recommendations for £200 heart shaped lights, or how to never eat any saturated fats. It will be real lifestyle for real people - restaurants, pubs, days out and interiors - all at real prices.
All of this was going to be too much for my blogger account, and whilst I have never been overly concerned with my blog looking immaculate, it was becoming overcrowded. The sensible solution to this was to upsize to a website, and whilst this has been quite a work in progress, I hope you all agree that it has been worth the wait!
