The new year always brings in the need to do a new thing. To spice things up. To revamp. To reevaluate and make improvements. To decide and define what it is that really says who you are and points you in the direction of where you are going. And that's exactly what I'm doing with the blog.

So, what should you expect from the blog in the new year? Well..

  1. A new name! That is correct. I am changing the name of the blog to "That Little Southern Girl" and the web address to The contact email will be This name is a little more streamlined. A little easier to remember. It rolls off the tongue a little better. And is more reflective of what the blog actually is.
  2. A new look! Over the past few weeks, the site has been under a bit of construction as I've tried to figure out the absolute best look for the blog. I'm still looking. But when I find it, I know it will be BAM!
  3. More >>Fashion Fix<< posts. I enjoy fashion. Not necessarily high fashion and extravagant names with outrageous price tags. I enjoy my fashion. I enjoy looking at a number of other "average, everyday, ordinary" fashion blogs. I want to share more of my looks (and possibly my friends' looks) with you guys.
  4. Crafting and DIY projects. My craft and sewing projects have been somewhat nonexistent on the blog and that's because they've been somewhat nonexistent in reality. Crafting is something I really enjoy doing and I can't wait until I have time to get back to it. When I do, I'll be sure to share with you guys my most Pinterest-worthy creations.
  5. Features of my friends and family. I really enjoyed the write up and pictures from my >>birthday weekend<<. I look at that post quite often, reliving the experience. I think the blog needs more of that.
  6. PourVoir. 2012 was the very beginning of me actually thinking about taking my photography and makeup artistry business serious. In the past year, I've made tiny steps in forming my brand. This year, I plan to push forward with it and want to take you guys along for the ride.
  7. "Someone You Should Know". This is a new segment I want to add to the blog that features up and coming small business owners that inspire me. As an up and coming small business owner myself, I am gaining an understanding of the process and have developed a sincere respect for those who are on or have been on the same journey as myself. I have a few businesses already in mind that I plan to feature. If you are a small business owner, who is doing something innovative and creative and would like to be featured on the blog, send an email with the subject line "Someone You Should Know" to The businesses I feature in this segment will be done so at my discretion. I have a strong foundation in faith, fairness, and positivity and only feel justified in presenting that to my readers. If you feel your business fits the bill, let me know and it just may be featured here on "That Little Southern Girl"!! *I'm thinking of spliting the "Someone You Should Know" segment into two parts- business and personal. Still thinking...

So in summary, "What should you expect from the blog in 2013?" My answer is GREATNESS!!!
