I’ve been thinking for a while that there’s something I don’t 100% love about this blog. I’ve almost totally overcome my nervousness at “coming out” as a blogger to my real life friends and family but there’s still a bit of awkwardness and I think it’s because of the name.
I came up with the name Magpie Mama back in 2014 when I was pregnant was Edward and wanted to start blogging again after a long period of absence – five years to be precise. My original blog was called Magpie Sparkles and I kind of wish there was still a trace of it online. It would be totally cringe but still, it represents a part of my life. However I deleted it and it’s completely gone. Magpie Mama was meant to be a nod to the old blog and yet acknowledge my new status as a Mother. It seemed like a good idea at the time but it was an impulse and I hadn’t really considered a long term vision.
Fast forward three years and this blog has been stop/start to say the least but I finally feel like I’m starting to get a feel for how I want it to be and have found my own little groove – and that means saying goodbye to the Magpie. For good.
I’ve wracked my brains to think of what I wanted to replace it with and I finally had a brainwave. I think I’ve found something that encapsulates me and my personal brand and it will also be the name of my new business that I’m working on launching. I won’t spoil things just yet, but everything will be revealed as soon as I can.
There’s a lot of life changes going on in the background with me, which is why there hasn’t been much content on here, but please bear with me. I’m trying to post more and more on my Instagram, so head on over there for outfit posts, makeup chat and more.
