A Face-lift and an Apology

I got a little Face-lift! Or an identity change...that's more like it. 
Sugar, Spice, and a Dash of Advice is now Sweet Shangrila!

There are a few reasons... I was ready for a change. I want to put more time and energy into blogging and I just felt the old name was difficult. It was long, annoying to type, and I hated the "advice" part. I don't presume to be worthy of giving anyone advice, and it kind of got on my nerves every time I saw it. I thought it was cute when it was just my family reading and I posted pictures of cupcakes every couple months, but not so much anymore.

"Sweet Shangrila" is shorter, simple, and also holds a special meaning.
Sweet = my love for sweets. Plain and simple.
Shangrila = a street I lived on in Texas when I was little. I have wonderful memories there and it reminds me of a time where things were simple, pure, and happy. Just like the word... "shangrila".

There are still some kinks to work out ( a blog design and domain) but I'll be making those changes soon. Stay tuned!
So, what do you think?

It's also Day 13 of Blog Everyday in May. I've skipped a couple days, but this weekend was so busy!
Today's prompt is to "issue a public apology".

So, I'm sorry...
To Chris. I'm not the easiest person to live with and you're amazing to me when I least deserve it.
To my family. I wish I was better at being there for you all. I love you all so much.
To my body. I'm so terrible at being consistent with working out, but I feel so much better when I do. I'll try harder.


  1. Oooh I love the new look and name!! Yayy!

  2. I was wondering what was going on - my Bloglovin' app on my phone had *Sweet Shangrila* and I was confused, lol!

    Congrats on the decision to switch and working through it! I'm doing the same thing right now - feels so good!


  3. I love it! The new name just rolls off the tongue - it's so pretty!!!

  4. I LOVE!! It's so you. Perfect.

  6. Love it! Although..I just knew your name had something to do with Sangria the drink! ha Loving your new pic on the sidebar too. Super cute :)

  7. I do love the new name... I'm glad you explained that you have a new name... I was reading the Sangria Swirl post... and was confused... because the blog name wasn't familiar but I know I'd seen your cute picture before! (I'm old... exhausted... and, apparently, easily baffled...)
