Hello everyone, and welcome to a whole new world! …Er, I mean, a whole new blog! I mentioned in my 2014 recap that I worked with an amazing designer named who made this beautiful (see what I did there?) theme for me in just a few days, and I wanted to share with you guys what all changed around here. Seriously, I am so, SO happy with how everything looks now!
Since I’ve gotten my new theme, blog post ideas keep flowing and I can’t wait to write and share them! With my last theme, over the past few months, I felt less and less inspired because I just didn’t like my theme anymore. Now that I have a new one that I love and am proud to show off, I’m excited to take advantage of new opportunities! Here are some things that are different or will be different as I move forward with my blog:
— A partial rebrand/refocus. I wasn’t planning on doing a rebrand of my blog with the new theme, but when Nina asked if I wanted to include a slogan or tagline, I came up with “Lessons on being happy, healthy and beautiful,” and I realized that I wanted to expand my blog reach a bit. I don’t want to focus so heavily on makeup and skincare reviews, although I will still publish those from time to time. I want to start writing more reflection and personal posts so I can relate to you guys more and the beauty within each of us, whether we wear makeup or not. I have some really cool posts planned to fit this new focus, and I can’t wait to start sharing them with all of you!
— Ad swaps. I’m still trying to figure out how it all works, but I will be doing (for now, only free) ad swaps now that I have a button to share! This is something I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time, and I’m anxious to get started. Stay tuned!
— More personality. I think I’ve been a little personal with you guys over the last year, but I want to take everything one step further and really start opening up and sharing more. So get ready to see more of my craziness as my personality comes out 😉 I’ll go more in depth on various issues, share more photos from my life and more. I may even start doing videos in the future, but I think that’d be too much for me right now.
If there’s anything you guys want to see here on my blog but aren’t seeing, please let me know! Shoot me an email, comment below and/or fill out , and I promise to take all your thoughts to heart.
