 With the New Year upon us (Hello, 2014!) it's become time for a new and exciting change. Starting December 30th, 'Funfairs and Fairydust' will be no more, but instead I introduce *big cheers and claps* 'Lauryn's Notebook!' *squeals*

Change is what defines us as people; without change the world would be a boring place. Nonetheless, change is a daunting thing that is both good and bad. 

Blogging is a thing that I had never even considered a mere year ago. I love writing; seeing my thoughts come alive as they turn into a weird and wonderful piece of writing is truly one of my favourite things. Since starting my blog 4 and a half months ago, blogging has provided me with so many amazing opportunities that I can't even fathom to explain how grateful I am for. I can't remember what life pre-blogging was like.

I am simply changing my blog name. I love the name 'funfairs and fairydust' - it is very 'me' and I think it perfectly represents my blog. It's fun, cute and original. But it's not just there. I feel that if I am going to carry on this wondrous time in the blogosphere then a new name could reflect this descison-let's say I'm stepping it up a level.

Do not panic; all of the content will remain as I am not deleting this blog and starting a new blog,  I am simply changing the name. I think this new name reflects my blog's 'personality' if you will; it's personal, fun and catchy. This blog has become my thought outlet; I write about my life, debates; reviews of products and books, as well as notes on things I love. I think this name encompasses all of what my blog set out to do. I like to write; writing is my passion. I  going to continue in the blogosphere: putting my entirety of spare energy in making my blog a place you want to come back to again and again. 

I am waiting for the Bloglovin support team to get back to me about transferring my followers across to a new URL so again please 'bear with' as is often said in Miranda!

My NEW social media links are as follows:

Twitter: @laurynsnotebook
Instagram: @thatgirllauryn_

Also, if you would like to complete a blog button swap, then please send me an email titled 'Blog Button Swap' along with your button (200x200 or smaller). I will reply with my html, or if you want it sooner it can be found in my sidebar! I hope to receive lots of emails soon, haha.

My blog will be undergoing lots of changes in the next week or so; so please 'bear with' the new basic design for now as I haven't had time to create a different design completely.
I hope you understand and support this.

But it has to be said; Happy new year! I hope 2014 proves to be your best year yet; filled with laughter and amazing memories. What's stopping you from making 2014 your year?

  3. I'm so happy for you! I really want to change my blog name too but for now I can't because I'm in my finals. :( I'm thinking about doing it as a birthday present for myself in april :D I'll have time to think about my new name and things like that. Even though I don't have an idea about a new name at all so I might keep it, I really don't know yet :D
