The Re-launch of The Fashion Faux Pas Of Gabrielle

The Re-launch of The Fashion Faux Pas Of Gabrielle

It’s almost 3 years since I launched The Fashion Faux Pas of Gabrielle and I can’t quite believe that I’ve stuck with it after all of this time – I found an old blog of mine that I started in uni, wrote around six posts on and abandoned it (some of the posts were hilarious), so I’ve obviously hit the nail on the head this time around to want to stick with it.

Anyway, I’m sure you might have clicked on to today’s post and noticed that the site has had a bit of a refresh – I’ve finally moved away from hosting with WordPress.com to self-hosted with Siteground and I couldn’t be happier with the decision. I’m now able to start integrating features I wasn’t able to before and truly upping my game, which has really given me some motivation to make this an even better platform!

I’ve been wanting to make the transition for quite some time and did have a couple of hiccups during the process, which I wouldn’t have been able to sort out so quickly without the help from Emily at Blogger to WordPress.com – as I was on a Premium plan with WordPress, transferring my site was a bit of a mare, but she sorted it all with Siteground and made sure I had a beautiful site to share all of my content on.

What you can expect to see

  • A shiny new blog theme and layout
  • Carousel product features – something I’ve always admired on other blogs and haven’t been able to include on here before!
  • A new sign off – same wording, just different fonts and colours to fit with the new theme!
  • More chuckle-inducing, informative content about fashion, beauty and life – it wouldn’t be my blog without a fashion faux pas thrown in here and there now would it?

I want to give Emily from Blogger to WordPress.com a HUGE shout out for supporting me in the transition and their team for re-creating my beautiful blog to what it is today. I’d definitely recommend that you check them out if you’re thinking about starting your own blog or transitioning to self-hosted as I have- they’re a great bunch!

Let me know what you think of the new site in the comments below and whether there are any issues/small changes you think I can make to improve. In the meantime, I’m going to crack on with creating some new content to upload to this bad lad!

    “This bad lad” favourite phrase you’ve ever used, ha! I’m loving the new site Gaby, it’s so much prettier and more professional. Am I right in thinking your header has slightly changed, too? Either way, it all looks brilliant! Self-hosted was definitely the best thing I did for my blog. I was super close to getting a plan with WordPress in the beginning but glad I didn’t as it does sound like a hassle! Site ground host my site too and they’ve been nothing but fab and my site hasn’t gone down ONCE since renewing with them like it did about 3 times a week with my last host – awfu!

      I did change the header too – I much prefer it and feel like it’s a lot more slick now! I bloody wish I hadn’t gone with WordPress – I was on that plan for about 18 months and didn’t realise how expensive it was! And also love that phrase – I say it about everything IRL 😂😂❤️❤️

    lunch break. I love the knowledge you provide here and can’t wait to
