New blog design & New hair!!

Yes!! You are in the right place, I promise. I kinda decided my blog home needed a makeover. And especially after writing this post on 8 Ways to Rock Your Blog, I decided there were a few things I needed to change. So... here we are!


I worked closely with Freeborboleta Designs, and Fran created exactly what I wanted!! She was patient with me as I had her tweak and move things around until they were just how I envisioned! Clean, fresh & easy to navigate. I have nothing but positive things to say about her!! I highly recommend checking out her work! I promise, you'll be impressed :)

What do you think of the new design!? I'm so excited about it!

ALSO!

I was getting pretty bored with my blonde hair, so I made a spur of the moment appointment with my favorite hair stylist, and POOF. Bye bye blonde & hello dark chocolate brown with auburn tints! And holy moly, I cut it short, too. Whoa.

It will take some getting used to, but you know, sometimes you just gotta do something drastic!! It's sort of exhilarating and necessary.

Love it! Also the recipe from last night was great! My husband was so happy to come home to a good meal :) (hard to come by these days with me being pregnant with a 5 month old). So easy!

The hair looks great and so does the site! I love it! I have to change mine around too but I make my own graphics for it so right now I'm leaving it as it is for Halloween.

The blog looks so great! I just updated mine as well and it's so exciting and refreshing!

I went dark for fall too recently. I definitely startled myself more than once walking past a mirror. It looks great on you though. It was a good decision!

The new hair is very cute and I love the new look on the blog. I especially love the typography. :-)

Love the new blog & you! And that discount is too good to pass up! I guess I will be popping my sponsor cherry with you. When does the offer expire?

I've already told you how much I enjoy your new blog design (and your new haircut). After a few days of using your new design, I have to say that I find the main body test a little hard to read because of the lack of contrast as well as the light blue for the links.
