On Blog Design, and My Recent Redesign



If you've visited my blog in the last couple of days (since Wednesday), you might notice that things look a smidge different around here. What started out as a blog header change turned into a spontaneous redesign that I'm absolutely loving. :)

So how did it come about?

I changed the header earlier this week to a different font, and at the same time, I felt like the blog was missing something. I wondered if I wanted to add any sort of extras to my sidebar, a signature...but nothing was really striking my fancy.

That is, until I discovered that one of the blogs I follow on Bloglovin' recently redesigned her blog. It looked really good, so I scrolled down to the bottom of the page to see who the designer was, or if she designed the layout herself.

That's how I discovered Pipdig, the same guys who designed one of my top favorite fashion/lifestyle blogs, InTheFrow.

They do custom templates that are absolutely gorgeous. I found one I absolutely adored, bought it, customized it myself using the template designer and some HTML know-how, and it's now the best it's ever looked. Ever. The guys at Pipdig know what they're doing for sure.

Was the purchase worth it? 100% yes. I originally wasn't going to buy a template, and I would not have made the purchase if I didn't absolutely love it. Plus, I blog a lot anyway.

Does this mean I'm not going to change the colors again later if I'm so inclined? Given my track record, probably not. But I'm absolutely LOVING my bright mint color scheme right now, so it'll stay this way for the next good while. :) And this layout is definitely sticking around for the long haul; call me obsessed.

What do you guys think of the new look?
