Blog Name Change


Hello all! Sadly, I'm not here with a new post today, but I do have a little announcement for you all. 

Some of those among you may know that I've been unhappy with my blog's name for a long time. 'Lala London' was very spur of the moment and in the end, it bore no relevance to me or my blog's content. I've been plucking up the courage to change my blog's name for ages now. It's a fairly complicated process which included setting up redirecting, changing domain CNAME's, etc. I've finally taken the plunge though and I am so happy I did!

I never anticipated taking my blog so seriously or sticking at for this long, if I'm completely honest. So, when it came to naming it, I opted for the first thing that came into my head, and bought the custom .co.uk domain almost instantly. I've lived to regret that ever since, as I believed 'Lala London' may be off-putting to readers... not exactly glitzy and glamorous, was it?! So, here it is... I've renamed my blog 'Laura's Beauty Binge' (.com this time), for obvious reasons. I feel this name is so much better suited to my content, but including my name in the domain has kept it personal to me. I ummed and ah'ed so hard over the new name, as I didn't want to end up regretting it again in the future, or feel embarrassed when people ask me what my blog's called (which I totally was when I had to say 'oh, it's Lala London' at blogging events... doh!). 

So anyway... I'm also here to ask: please be patient with me while I set everything up to redirect. You may notice a few inconsistencies around here for the next few weeks, but I'm working on it! So far, I've changed my Bloglovin' widget and social icon up the top there, changed my header (which is temporary. I'm working on something a little more pretty as we speak!), changed the links in my Twitter and Instagram bio's and moved all my Bloglovin' followers across. Visitors should still be able to type in www.lalaldn.co.uk and it will automatically redirect to www.laurasbeautybinge.com but if you have an issue with this, please drop me an email at lauralou11@btinternet.com so I can have it resolved!

Thank you all for your patience and I hope you like the new blog name! Let me know!
