Welcome to An Edited Lifestyle!
Hello, darlings and welcome to the brand new blog! This is the secret project that I’ve been working on for the most of December but has been a long time coming.
My blog has been known as Champagne Lifestyle since 2013. Back then, it was Champagne Lifestyle, Tea Budget- it was shortened very quickly when I realised how much of a mouthful it was! It’s a bittersweet change to change my blog’s name, the identity of it and myself as a blogger. But it was long overdue.
When I first started the blog, I was 23 and had just moved to Leeds with my then-boyfriend-now-husband, who I had only been dating for six months. My life was all about living fabulously in my brand new city on the tiny budget I had. Now, five years later, I’m in my late twenties, have a fabulous job and I’ve completely changed. For about a year I’ve felt that Champagne Lifestyle no longer fit who I was and what my goals were in life. About a year ago I decided to make the change. Six months later, I finally came up with a name. In the final month, I got my butt into gear and did all the technical stuff to make it happen.
Of course, December wasn’t the best month for me and a few things were left down to the wire (I’m typing part of this up at 2 am on New Years Day, that’s how final hour we got!) And there’s a ton of back work I need to do. However, I’m so happy I took the plunge…
Why An Edited Lifestyle?
So how did I land on An Edited Lifestyle? Quite simply, it sums up the life I’m living at the moment. Over the past year and with much more drive in the last six months, I’ve been really editing down things in my life. I think it’s a cathartic exercise to sort out, purge and clear my mind and the world around me.
And boy has it made a difference. I’ve noticed that slowly but surely everything feels calmer, more relaxed. My blog has always been about sharing my life, my hints and tips so that you can also live a fabulous life. This is also why I chose An Edited Lifestyle. This is one type of edited life. There are many out there, but this one is personal to me. I don’t expect people to follow everything to a T, but take extracts from it here and there, moulding it for you and how you like to live…
So, What Can You Expect from An Edited Lifestyle?
New name, same blog. Just a little bit sleeker and more refined. This blog is still going to get new posts every Monday, Wednesday and Fridays (and possibly a Sunday one but do not quote me on this!) I’m still going to be doing all my interiors and lifestyles posts, my how-to and guides that I feel will benefit you lovely lot.
I have, however, refined down my categories. I had about a million of them, but now there’s only four: lifestyle, beauty, style and travel. I’m also adding a Shop page soon, where I’ll put all my Instagram outfits in one place so you can shop all the items which take you fancy.
It feels like such a huge step waving goodbye to Champagne Lifestyle. It will always hold a special place in my heart, it was my baby, my special corner of the internet. Now, my corner of the internet has had a quick makeover and I’m loving it. So, welcome again to An Edited Lifestyle. I hope you love it as much as I do…
