Blog Name Change!!!

Hey all,

I've decided that I need a change...more motivation and a new name for my blog. I am making a promise to myself and my followers to do more blog posts. I'll be receiving my Masters in July so I'm pretty excited and relieved that my life will be a little less hectic.

The name of my blog will now be: Polished Chic ---

So with that said, I need this change...change is good. Thank you so much to Jess from LuvMyLacquer for helping me choose the name. You rock love! xx
