All About My New Blog theme.

First things first please excuse the terrible lighting of this photo. Seriously, I almost didn't post it but I wanted to write this so badly! Please blame the lack of natural lighting for the unnatural reddish tinge. 


Today I wanted to talk with you guys about my blog theme switchover. For me, aesthetic and design are probably the most important thing about a blog. Initially if I click onto a new blog and hate the design then the chances of me actually reading the posts are very, very slim. What can I say? I'm swayed by pretty things! 

For a long while I've been trying to make my blog beautiful by using CSS and HTML. But I'm going to be honest with you guys: I'm a complete technophobe and frankly I sucked at it. Whilst I did create an entire menu from HTML scratch (with the help of some internet tutorials naturally) it took me weeks and weeks of valiant effort. The same went for my social media icons in the sidebar - it took an age. 

And even with my best efforts my blog still looked very... blogger. So naturally as my love of blogging grew, I outdated the ugly sidebar and boring fonts... Enter Etsy. I'd been ogling at beautiful designs on Etsy for months before I decided to take the plunge. I saw this theme and fell in love. It screamed professional, sleek, minimalist, everything I wanted my blog to be. After carefully thinking it through I decided today was the day for change.

So the new theme was born. Isn't it beautiful? 

The main thing I was worried about was the actual installation. I didn't want to spend £10 on something that was far too technical for me to actually use, but you know? I didn't even have to click the 'edit HTML' button once! All you serial theme buyers are probably rolling your eyes right now, but honestly I was shocked. Everything was so, so simple even my little computer-hating mind could work it out! 

And now, I've got the most beautiful blog, with a sliding menu I think I'm actually in heaven!


Please do let me know what you guys think of the new theme!



  1. Your blog looks just lovely. You did a really good job on it! I know exactly what you mean about having just the right blog design. I have spent hours with my design to, I think I am to a point where I am happy with it! Looking forward to more of our posts

    1. I'm really happy with mine too! But I'm so indecisive it'll probably continue to have little tweaks here and there!! Xx

  2. Well done - your blog looks amazing! I want to change the look of my blog around a bit so that it looks less "Blogger", but I have to admit I'm a bit scared of using HTML etc. I might have to look on Etsy for something that will suit me!
