New Year.. New Blog Design


Source: Unknown

Happy New Year Everyone! - I know what you're thinking.. erm it's mid-January?! But better late than never and all that! I unfortunately haven't managed to pop up a post yet this year as I've been whittling away when I can giving my blog a whole new fresh look! Yay! What do you all think? It's taken quite a while and I've even managed to crack on a bit of HTML and CSS. Yes. It actually scares me still just writing those words! Thank god for Google is all I can say. Anything I got stuck on I found a load of answers just searching online and being able to edit code made me feel a lot more professional than I actually am! I don't think any Website Designers will be worried about their jobs just yet though...  

Anyway, for my blog refresh I've also used  features from an Etsy shop I found online called 'Carrie Loves Design.' If you're thinking about changing your blog design and not sure how or where to start (I didn't really have a clue) I definitely recommend having a browse on Etsy to get some inspiration! Pinterest is also a must visit if your looking for social media icons, colour combinations and header design inspiration too! And you can download lots of icons for free! Perfect! Luckily I did a fair bit of graphic design at Uni so was fine with all the Photoshop bits but again Youtube and forums are fab for tutorials with those programmes! 

I hope you're all enjoying 2014 so far, I'm excited to get back into the blogging routine again now I'm done with the design! I'm going to try and do equal posts this year on outfits, beauty and music which hopefully you'll be able to navigate easier to with my new page tabs :)  so stay tuned guys!
