a slight change of plan

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

If you've been an avid reader of my blog for sometime now, you may notice that when you visited today, a few things have changed. For starters, my blog design is completely different. Don't get me wrong, I loved my old blog design but I felt like it was too plain - if that makes sense. I spent a good few hours this morning tweaking and swapping things around with a hell of a lot of googling for them silly HTML codes. I've gone completely different, from colour schemes to writing and slightly even in the form of the content. I've even done the whole sha-bang, what with new About page and updated FAQ's and Blogrolls.

From now on, I've decided to make this blog a lifestyle and beauty blog. I tend to read beauty blogs, yet lust after writing a nice, neat little online journal in the form of a lifestyle blog. Yes, there will still be monthly beauty favourites and product reviews, but in a bid to make this little space of the internet more personal, expect to see photos of me and my life, as well as what I get up to. I hope that this doesn't confuse you too much! In short form, I'm just after a bit of a change.

I felt like I'd hit a bit of a brick wall in terms of my blog, hence the reason for the blog re-design. For me, re-designing my blog and slightly changing the direction and content of my blog is extremely inspiring and motivational. For example, as soon as I changed the design, I couldn't wait to write this post and show you all what I'd been working on for the past 3 hours. Also, I think it's good to have some sort of a change.

I've been reading more lifestyle-ly blogs recently too, and it's such a good way to gain motivation. A few of my favourites include Ellalogy, Hey Natalie Jean, Erstwhile Felicity and Paris in Four Months. I'm also hoping to become more adventorous and better with my photography and I think that making this blog more personal will help with that.

I hope I haven't confused you too much!
