Welcome To Lottie Gibbons

July 14, 2017

This is all a bit odd, isn't it? First things first welcome to 'lottiegibbons.com'! As you may have recently seen, I had a massive blog re-design as I felt my old website was a bit lacklustre, so I decided it was time for a change. When I was coding and adapting my blog template, I also realised that maybe it was time for a new name too? 
'FlareAForte' was a name that I came up with when I first started my blog last year.  One thing I always got asked was "What does it mean?". Well, it doesn't actually mean anything... and I think that was one of the problems. At the time when trying to conjure up a name I was really into flared trousers, hence the 'flare'. As for the 'forte', I genuinely think it was because I loved Rosie Fortescue from Made In Chelsea. 
Whilst that is all sugar and sweets, one of the major issues was it didn't provide me with any identity. Who was 'FlareAForte'? What is 'FlareAForte' about? 

So - a new name it was and what is better than using my actual name?! 
For me it makes sense, my blog is precisely that; my blog where I can write about everything and anything. This allows me to range from travel tips to fashion to lifestyle to beauty etc without worrying if I am moving from my 'niche'.

I am both excited and a little bit nervous about this change. After only a year it was a big decision to up sticks from FlareAForte, but I feel that this will help move me on to bigger and better things. I appreciate those who are frequent readers and I hope I won't let you down. 
Let's do this!
