Dear Grabbing Lapels Readers,
Hello! Hope you are all having a great week! It’s just the beginning of 2017 and as we all anticipate the New Year and the changes that come with it, the ladies of Grabbing Lapels are no different. Two years ago Bianca and Brittany started Grabbing Lapels as a way to reach audiences like us, twenty-something’s still trying to figure everything out. During the last two years we have challenged ourselves to commit to the blogging lifestyle. On our journey we have tried new things, sharpened our personal and professional skills and met a lot of great people along the way. Whether it was a volunteer event or trying a new restaurant, we learned something about the world and ourselves.
Grabbing Lapels is all about making changes, shaking things up and going after what we want. It means making the best of our lives and taking risks. During that time we have shared our everyday actions and lifestyle opinions with our audience. It’s been a challenge and a blessing and one we want to continue.
At this time, Brittany and Bianca have decided to take a break from the blog. While we are incredibly proud of it and want to continue the blog in the future, at this time we have to take a short break. We want to lead by example and it would not be fair for us to give the blog and our audience less than 100%.
So what’s next?
During this time, Brittany and Bianca are going to be focusing on our personal lives so that we can come back stronger. While we are both working multiple jobs and making major lifestyle changes, we want to take them in stride and share them with you. We will be taking a break from the blog for a few months, so we can re-focus on our own lifestyle path and then come back stronger. While we are away, we will also be working on re-branding the Grabbing Lapels site to better reflect ourselves as young women. That means moving into a 30-something’s style lifestyle blog that explores our lives as 30-somethings living in Illinois. We still feel we have a lot to share. We have a lot to learn, a lot of topics to explore and lot of outfits, recipes and event reviews to share.
In the meantime, the site will still be active. We will still be engaging with you on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram because we love to share the things we love with you.
We appreciate your patience and we value your dedication to our site.
Brittany & Bianca
