I am so pleased to officially announce that my new blog, Cia Pink Pumpkin, is now launched! We are still polishing things up, but the site is up and fully functional!
Why did I make this move? All through summer I had been thinking about opening a second blog... Because I am not who I was when I started See it Love it Buy it. I wanted a place for crafts and recipes. A place where I could blog once I was married and, down the road, when I have kids. See it Love it Buy it, while great, doesn't strike me as a mommy blog.
However, I started wondering how on earth I would manage to run two blogs. One was already sapping all of my time and energy. When I was made aware of the lengths to which some others had gone to with the intention of restricting my blog growth, I decided it wasn't worth it. At least not on here. So I decided I would start over completely on a new blog.
This wasn't an easy decision... Leaving behind everything I have done here and starting over. But now that my new blog is finished, it is 100% worth it. Cia Pink Pumpkin is everything I was hoping it would be!
So what's different about Cia Pink Pumpkin?
Don't worry, my love for Bath and Body Works hasn't diminished! I have a category titled "See it Love it Buy it", so you can easily find all the usual posts about reviews and news of our favorite store. I'll also be adding any cosmetic, home fragrance, and style posts there as well.
I've also added special areas for crafts and recipes, both of which I hope to be doing more of! You can preview them as a visitor under Delicious Dining and Craft Corner, and register as a user to get the recipes and instructions.
There's an Entertainment section for whenever I want to gab about music, movies, tv, or books. I haven't put much there yet but just wait until the New Year... Pretty Little Liars, Ravenswood, Dance Moms, and Downtown Abbey! I will be rather busy.
Of course I have my Sweetheart Bride category for posts about my upcoming wedding... I haven't done anything with the wedding for a few months, because I'm still way ahead. After the wedding this will be replaced by my posts about being a newlywed bride :)
A new section added is the Anti Bullying section. Whether it be online or offline, amongst adults or adolescents... It has been an ongoing issue in my life since I started blogging, and I've recently become involved in giving and receiving support from those in a similar situation. I wanted a place to share the resources I find in regards to this topic.
The final new category... Last but not least... Preschool!!! I recently was hired as a preschool teacher and I am so excited! I've worked with children for years through dance, and I am excited that this is now what I'll be doing with my life. Look forward to plenty of coloring pages, simple crafts, and activities perfect for those little ones!!!
So that's the rundown of the new blog... Cia Pink Pumpkin! I can't wait to see you there!!!
