New blog name inspiration!!

Hey dolls,

I want to change my blog name (again!). I started off with the name Lushblush21, hense why my URL for my blog and my twitter name is that :) I moved onto a better name (as I thought) of Make-up is a Girls Best Friend but recently found out another blogger has this name... I don't want to be linked to or mistaken for another blog. I want to be individual. I don't exactly have the biggest imagination when it comes to coming up with blog names but I'm sure I'll find one... I asked for a little help from other bloggers through Twitter with the tweet (image below). I got one response, helpful :)

Interestingly not many people responded to my tweet... I find it interesting because I thought others would want to share there inspirations and there blog names :) But air ah... :)

I'm thinking of a few but will need to create a new banner and a button before continuing on with the name change and before announcing it.

Hopefully I'll find some inspiration somehow :) I need to find something that represents me but also a name that no one else has :P
