New Look..



Did you notice something different about visiting my blog this time?? I decided it was time for a unique, new look. My lovely friend Sara gave me some great suggestions on design/layout and so I built up the courage to just dive right into Photoshop and try it myself. 

I wanted a brighter, cleaner look. And I definitely think it is more "ME" I knew I had to incorporate teal, some sparkle, navy, chevron and the citron was the perfect balance. The new about me section is much easier to read and the text area is much wider allowing for bigger pictures!! I was joking with my friend Veronica about having my own blog design business, but who knows with some practice ;)

My new button I am going to add to my sponsor page soon!

What do you think? Did you notice the color scheme is from the Office Mood Board I posted last week? 

Hope all of you readers had a wonderful weekend...we visited our parents this weekend and it was very relaxing! Now I can't wait to watch the Walking Dead tonight! If you think I am crazy for this, I would highly recommend giving it a chance first! Haha and if you do watch the show, you should take this funny quiz! Any guesses on which character I was??


I also just finished reading Divergent by Veronica Roth. I am waiting to get the second book Insurgent from the Nook library. If you liked the Hunger Games, I would definitely recommend this book.



Get excited for what's coming to the "new" blog this week:

Bedroom Mood Board- linking up with Design Your Dwelling
Design Dilemmas- rug options and new accessories
and possibly another Wedding Wednesday or The Newlywed Game link-up!

    1. Haha I'm sure it is!

      That is so funny...I used to watch the bachelor but now I just think its really cheesy and fake (no offense) and since you probably think I'm a weirdo for watching a zombie show!!

  12. I love the look of your blog. Also, I just finished Divergent, too! Did you know they're filming the movie soon? Another good book (series) is Switched (Trylle) by Amanda Hocking. Anyway, I just found your blog & can't wait to read more. :-)
