This honestly feels a little odd. It truly has been quite some time, hasn’t it?
In fact i’m almost certain it has been a year now since I was mustering the courage to write a post like this.
Like they say though, better late than never.
You know, that age old excuse we all think helps us get away with anything we find ourselves being late on.
But with everything going on around us right now, keeping us in a feeling of swimming down to new unknown depths, but with blurred vision, I needed something to keep me somewhat sane. If that’s at all possible.
It’s very easy to get lost in it all. To fall into this trap of sudden panic and allow the hectic clutter of noise sourrounding us all to take over.
Unfortunately, for a little while at least, I did.
However now, i’ve given my mind back something worth concentrating on again when I’m not having fun with my own job.
Don’t worry. This isn’t just going to be a passing moment for me. I’d been planning on making my return for a while. I had to. I needed to.
This blog and everything that initially came with it has been ingrained in the corner of memories, burning into me, pushing me to pick it back up.
Right now just seemed as good a time as any.
Saying that, I assumed it would be difficult. Jumping head first back into something I didn’t even think I would be able to do anymore. I worried that no one would even remember I was ever here.
Thankfully none of that has been the case. It really feels like it always did.
I’m back. As I should be. Yet not everything is or will be as it once was.
Things have changed. I’ve changed.
So what’s different? I know you all desperately want to know so let me just show you before you all EXPLODE with excitement.
First I want to introduce you to the BRAND NEW logo and tagline for Life as Chloe Lauren.
Now i’m no designer, but I really am rather happy with how this turned out.
This simple but effective little sense of fun practically encapsulates what I and this blog are about.
No. Not plain.
Moving on, we have the entirely new layout of my homepage as an overall concept.
Chloe from years gone by would never have shown her face on this space, or just about anywhere for that matter.
If you were around near the time of this blog being created, and then some time following, you will most likely remember that overly timid side of me.
Now in 2020, Chloe Lauren is not one to shy away. It might look as though I love the camera a bit more than I should. If you’ve seen my Instagram (@lifeaschloelauren) you will definitely know what I mean.
Last but of course never least, my favourite part of this new chapter.
I NOW (FINALLY) OWN THE DOMAIN.
I always thought this should have been a step I took before. People even willed me to do so, but I just didn’t believe in myself the way I should have.
I’ve grown a lot if you couldn’t tell by this overwhelming child like excitement I am exuding right now.
Proud of me?
So there you have it. I have returned. Life as Chloe Lauren has been relaunched.
Are you ready for what is next? I am!
Let the virtual insanity continue.
