A New Blog Name

As many of you may have already noticed, I've gone ahead, been brave, and changed my blogs name!
For quite a while now I've had a hankering to change my blogs name. I know that so many of you love the name "My Favourite Things", as do I, but I really wanted my name to be unique, special, as well as encompass who I am as a person and individual.
Unfortunately, I just couldn't think of a single name I liked nearly enough to make the big blog transition.
Then one day, as my mum and I were desperately racking our brains for that particular name, about to give up, I just randomly blurted a name out... And I ADORED it!


So, what do you guys think of the new name? Pretty snazzy, right?
 This new name means a lot more to me than just a cute little name. 

HOPE actually means a lot to me, as I spent most of my teens years in and out of hospital. I've always believed that having hope for a future helped to keep me going, and never give up. And part of that drive and determination was my blog. It encouraged me to not give up, and make the very best of my situation 

HONEY I've always loved the word 'Honey' as it's not only a cute little nickname for a loved one, but honey was also commonly used to heal wounds a long time ago. So I felt Hopeful Honey went hand in hand, and it just rolled of the tongue, making it a cute and quirky name.. Perfect for my blog!

I hope all of you love my delightful new name as much as I do!
Have a wonderful day,

  7. I love your new name and thanks for sharing what it means to you, a name says a lot about a person and Hopeful Honey is spot on for you! I think the best names are the ones we choose for ourself. I enjoy popping over to your blog and being inspired by the lovely things you do.
    God bless you and all you set your heart and hands to do xx

    p.s. love the banner but perhaps honey as a name should have a capital H ? just a thought not a critiscism!, have fun ;o)
