Hey there! I am so excited to announce that my new blog is here! Please say hello to The Glamorous Gal! It has been a long, fun, sometimes taxing journey, but here I am. As some of you may know, I began blogging just after my husband, Eric, and I got married and bought our first home. My blog started out as a home decor and DIY blog as we attempted to decorate and renovate our home on a budget…hence, Suburban Renovation. Since then, my blog has evolved into more than I ever thought it could be!
Fashion has always been a passion of mine, even from an early age, my friends and family would call me “The Fashionista”, so it was only natural for this blog to eventually take a turn down that road. As my blog grew and as I continued to get invited to and attend more fashion influencer events, it became more and more evident that my beloved name, Suburban Renovation, was not going to cut it.
I would get question after question about what kind of blog content I had…”Suburban Renovation? So do you even blog about fashion?”, so it was inevitable that I was going to need to rebrand. I was hesitant to do this because I was worried I would confuse my readers and end up losing engagement due to the change. It wasn’t until after my second Fashion Week and answering constant questions about my blog name that I finally decided that it was time for a change.
Even as I made the decision, I knew what name I wanted to use…I just had to make sure it wasn’t already snatched up! For any of you out there who are WWII history buffs (my husband is), you know that many war planes from that time period had pinup caricatures and clever names painted on the noses. Eric and I went to an airshow a few years back and I took a picture infront of a P-51 Mustang called “Glamorous Gal” because, well…obviously that would be the one I would gravitate to.
I was ecstatic to see that my domain name was available. I was a little frustrated to find that not all social media channels had the username available, but I imrpovised. I am planning to to write a post, “How to Rebrand Your Blog”, that will outline some quick tips on successfully rebranding your blog.
I am so happy with my decision and I think this change is going to bring great opportunities for me in the future. I am looking forward to sharing this journey with all you! Thank you so much for all of the support and for sticking with me through the change!
Thank you for stopping by! Come back again soon!

That makes so much sense. I struggled a lot with choosing a name for my blog and knowing how things (or my mind) can change with time, I decided to go with my own name. I know for sure that’s not gonna change regardless of where my mind goes!

That is such a smart choice Stefana! I think that if I hadn’t fallen in love with Glamorous Gal, I would have definitely chosen my name as well. As it turns out, some of my social media ended up in my name anyway! Thanks for stopping by babe!
