Final facelift

Oh. My. Gosh. If you are in reader right now please please PLEASE click out so you can see my gorgeous new blog design!

Everything's pretty self-explanatory - things should be easier to find, but there is now a page for any posts that have recipes in them, and a whole page just for book reviews! On the left underneath my bio you can easily click to find me on all the social media sites, and further down on the left I now have buttons if you feel so inclined to put one on your blog!

The header - ohhh, be still my heart. Every time I look at it I find something else I love about it. How the title is framed, the flowers, the nail polish, the cursive - I simply love it all! And the different placement of the tagline "finding joy in life's little moments" makes me feel fancy!

I worked with lovely Kyla with the fabulous Freckled Nest Design, and I think her work here speaks for itself, but I'm going to brag about her awesome-ness anyway! I'm good friends with Kyla and I've seen a lot of her design work and always loved it, but I'm still so amazed that she can take things I like, and characteristics of my personality and convey it in a blog design. Her talent is phenomenal and I don't think I can recommend her and Freckled Nest enough if you're looking for designers. I put so much time into my blog and I love it so much - it's just nice to finally have the look of it be something I love as much as the effort I put in...if that makes sense!

Don't you just love it? I'm swooning over here! Feel free to play around and explore - I'll be back to regularly scheduled blogging soon!

(P.S. Happy Father's Day to all you dads out there!)

PS

I just read your About page, and that whole thing about being okay with the grey instead of black-and-white? Perfect. Absolutely perfect.

I'm so glad that you like it Becky- it was SO fun to work with you (but hardly fair since I know you so well already lol) and it's just terribly exciting for me that I was able to bring help you discover a new look that's more you <3

Oh. My. God. It's beautiful! So perfectly you! I love the series headers too-for your back to basics and nail color of the month!

Lucy The Valiant said...

My eyes! I've been blinded by the sheer beautiful awesomeness!! LOVE it!

Michelle said...

I looove your blog design! Kyla always does the best work, and this is so great!

Mandy said...

I love it! Its so you.

Suburban Sweetheart said...

I love it so much! Kyla is so talented, isn't she? I would've loved to hire her for my redesign, but Freckled Nest's prices are a nit out of my range, and their waiting list seems to span forever! I was rather unhappy with my last design (done by an FN designer before she started with Fn) & was really nervous about hiring someone to do a new one, so I'm thrilled that it turned out to be one I really love. Isn't having a new blog design that suits you well one of lie's little thrills?!
