Looking Good!

As you can probably tell (and if you can’t, your attention to details is really bad) we had a bit of a makeover. The old look was fine, albeit too pink for our taste, but given that we had no clue what we were doing when we first started the blog (we still don’t but we’re better at faking it…) we were never completely happy with the final look.

Now that the blog is a bit more established we decided that it was time to give it a new look. After doing a lot of research -and I mean a lot, I've been looking at blog designers for over three months now- we found the perfect place at Smitten by Blog Designs. They have great prices and a beautiful portfolio, so we couldn’t be happier with our choice. 

The reason for this post is to let you know that yes, it’s still us, we are only changing the look but the blog will remain the same, and to say thank you to Jacquelinne Altom, the best blog designer ever, for being so patient, listening to our feedback (and there was a lot of that), and for coming up with this beautiful and unique design.

We hope you like it as much as we do, and that you continue to show us the support that gave us the confidence we needed to take this new step into improving the quality of the blog. We just hit the 250 followers mark so the changes couldn’t have come at a better time. Thank you guys!

  2. Thanks Johanna!

    Now I'm feeling nostalgic about the old one LOL, but I'm not missing the pink...

  3. i love it! it looks beautiful! my mouth dropped open in happy surprise!

  4. The new look is beautiful. Very fresh and clean looking. LOVE IT Brie!

  5. @Dixie: Finally I get you guys commenting separately, every time I got a comment by gonepecanla I wondered which one was doing the commenting! LOL Thank you so much, I was going for the jaw-dropping reactions!

    @Jade: You’re not going to believe me but when I filled in the design form explaining what I wanted, clean and fresh-looking were the main requests!

  6. I love it!! I love the colors, the design, everything! Very nice! :D

  7. Hi Jess!

    I like that it’s white LOL! Blogger was driving me insane with all the formatting problems. Now it will be easier to disguise them since the background is white instead of pink. But I’m feeling a bit nostalgic about the old one… I don’t know what’s wrong with me!!

  8. It's a beautiful look. Very clean and sophisicated.

  9. I totally got a shock when I was stopping by to see a completely new look! But it definitely looks awesome. :D I reeeally like the clean and simple look, with the more unique touches to it!

  10. Thank you Bex!
    Now you know how I feel every time I visit your blog LOL! I'm really glad you like it, now you can tell that I love the color blue... ;-D


Blogger likes to eat comments, so I suggest copying it before hitting "publish" just in case it doesn't go through the first time. This is a pain, I know, but it's the only solution/prevision I can think of, and it will save you the frustration of losing a comment. Also, thanks for visiting!
