Welcome To The New Blog!
Well HELLO and welcome to the new blog, Hello Hannah! New name, new domain. My social media handles are all the same, and you’ll be redirected to this site even if you forget and type in www.champagnelifestyleblog.com. Now let’s get into the reason behind the change…
A Walk Down Memory Lane…
It’s a bittersweet change as I’ve had “Champagne Lifestyle” since I started the blog in 2011. It is also long overdue. When I started this blog I was in college, on a budget, and always looking for the cheapest way to do things. I still consider myself frugal in a lot of ways and I still love a good deal… (who doesn’t?) Although as the years have gone by I have changed a lot as a person and “Champagne Lifestyle” didn’t seem to define all that I wanted to share anymore.
Back then blogs were not a career but a genuine hobby… something you did for fun in your free time. I was in school, and working a full-time job when I started the blog. I loved it so much I made time for it. The blog has (slowly) grown into a business and it’s something I genuinely love doing.
You guys are my community and family — you’ve seen me grow up, you’ve seen my good fashion days (and my hideous ones). When I made the switch to a vegan lifestyle, you were there. You saw not one, not two but three foster dogs enter and leave my life. I took you along with me to England, Greece, Italy, and all over the U.S. You were there when I left my corporate career. You were also there when Jesse and I bought our first place… and so much more. I’m forever grateful to you all for allowing this to be a safe space to express myself, and for the love and support, you continue to provide.
While Champagne Lifestyle was a fun and wild ride, the new name is a little more general and I feel that it fits the mentality of this space a little better. The blog started as a sort of online diary for me… and it’s kind of evolved back into that. I want to continue to share bits and pieces of my life that might be helpful and of interest to you all.
And just for kicks, I thought it would be fun to look at the evolution of the Champagne Lifestyle logos…
The first one was made by Jesse (he actually custom drew it with so much love… it gives me all the feels!) Then we get all the way down to the last one done by my talented friend Kristen, who also did the logo you see on the site today! It’s so fun to see how things changed over the years.
What You Can Expect To See on Hello Hannah…
If you’re subscribed on YouTube (and if not, what are you doing?!) then you know I’m extremely passionate about vegan & cruelty-free fashion, beauty and general life things. Being vegan (in my opinion) is just one way I can help significantly reduce the amount of suffering in this world… something we need desperately. I hope to show that this lifestyle is not only easy, but it’s FUN, fulfilling, and rewarding. It’s so good for the soul.
Basically, you’ll find lots of fashion inspiration, beauty product recommendations, skincare tips, travel guides, and the occasional recipe.
Thank you for your support, your comments, your DM’s, your likes. I couldn’t do this without you all and I am truly so grateful to have you guys. I hope you’re excited about the new change and I can’t wait to bring you all some amazing content in 2018! Cheers!
