Introducing Primp & Proper

Wow, what a crazy few months this has been! Ever since making the decision to fully commit to blogging and rebrand my site, it has been a whirlwind of trying to divide my time between the rebrand and actually keeping up with posts! I'm so excited that the day has come to share with y'all the amazing work Tammy has done. I explained in last Friday's post why I ultimately decided to do the rebrand/name change, but I'm sure you're wondering how I came up with Primp & Proper.

Primp & Proper is a play on words to the Southern saying, prim and proper. To break it down, 'primp' refers to the style aspect of the blog (guys... primp means 'to get ready'). And 'proper' refers to lifestyle type posts. You'll see a little bit of both on this site, along with everything in between!

I hope y'all will checkout all the new features the blog has to offer. You can learn more about me, checkout the press and elsewhere page, see what I hope to accomplish before turning 25, and more! Some of my favorite features are the Instagram slideshow to your left and the 'where I shop' links below that. The links will take you straight to some of my favorite stores... easy to shop, right? Let me know what you think about the new site by commenting below or tagging me @KristynAlysse on social media!



Now for the THANK YOUs...

Over the past few months I've been working with my friend Tammy from A Loyal Love, to redesign my site. Tammy has been absolutely AMAZING to work with and I HIGHLY recommend her if you're ever looking to create a blog or website, or redesign your current blog. It was such a pleasure working with Tammy! She truly wants to make your site the best it can be, is very timely on her email responses, and is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to coding and graphic design. It was great for me, because I honestly didn't have too much in mind design wise of what I wanted. So Tammy offered some wonderful suggestions when it came to the design and layout of Primp & Proper. Be sure to checkout A Loyal Love and show Tammy some love as well!

I also want to thank EACH and EVERY ONE of you, my readers! A blog rebrand and redesign wouldn't even be possible without those who read it. Over the past year I've gone from having a small following of just my family (thanks Mom!), to having readers from all over the world. It's truly a pleasure to have y'all stop by my site, follow me on social media, and show your support along the way.

Oh, and I couldn't do a rebrand without a little something for y'all too! So I teamed up with some of my DC blogger besties to giveaway $150 to Nordstrom!! So gents, you can enter too! Check back tomorrow to enter!
Thanks so much for stopping by, xoxo

    Love the new set up. On your old format, looking at your page on my desktop it wasn't set quite right to center in the page and I had a scroll bar for the right inch or so of your posts. This one looks perfect.

    Just one question. Since you are going farther in this than you have before, are you a member of the Southern Blog Society hosted by Jessica of MyStyleVita.com and Cathy from PoorLittleItGirl.com? That's a great thing for networking and support!
