A Stylingo Update: And Then There Was One…


Hey there, you fine people of the internet. Today’s post is a bit of an update to let you all know of some changes here at Stylingo HQ. To keep it very simple…

Stylingo will no longer be a blogging duo.

Wait, was that the sound of hearts breaking across the nation? Oh, that was for the news of the 1D breakup? Pah, fine then…

Anywho, a little explanation – after two years of blogging together, Lauren’s unfortunately decided that she doesn’t have the time to dedicate to the blog anymore, and so has decided to hand the reigns fully over to me. There’s nothing dramatic or negative about this decision – there’s not been any Lennon/McCarthy style fall-out, and we won’t be popping up on Jezza Kyle any time soon (though a blogger special of JK would be beyond fantastic). It’s simply that Lauren’s super busy at work since being promoted recently, and is often all over the country at various meetings and so on. We all know how much time blogging takes and how tricky it can be to fit in alongside a full-time job, and so I’m sure you all understand the strain! Rather than start seeing it as a chore, or putting out half-arsed content, Lauren thought the best thing to do was to step back.

So from now on, Stylingo will no longer be ‘Lauren and Claire’, but just plain old Claire (am still undecided as to whether that will be my new Twitter handle though). The content will remain much the same – I do plan to jazz things up a bit over the coming weeks with a new logo and slight blog facelift, but otherwise not much will change. It’s obviously sad that it’s kind of the end of an era, but I’m also looking forward to the blog continuing to grow. I hope you’ll all keep reading, and a huge thank you from us both for the support over the last two years!
