A quick blog makeover

by Bex

I've been meaning to update the blog and give it a bit of a fresh new look for a while now - I originally thought I'd time it to coincide with moving and give it a brand new look when we started our new life in Sussex but then everything happened and with the moving as well as pregnancy, well... it just wasn't going to happen and ended up way down the priority list!

Now that the twins are a bit older and sleeping better, life is a bit less knackering!  It means I can hopefully manage to get back to blogging a bit more consistently and hopefully have some time to smarten the blog up a bit more too.  Anyway, for now we have a fresh new white and pale grey backdrop replacing the old swirly black and grey.  I originally chose that as I know black screens use less energy and it was also a bit different to everything else I was seeing but I just don't like it any more and wanted a brighter look.

Gone too is the old wedding photo banner.  Although I started out my blog all about our wedding planning, it's much more than that now so a new updated photo banner was required.  Again, I'd like to work on something a bit better but for now this showcases a lot of what we're about with a few fashion, food, home, craft and family pictures.

I've simplified our blog description, added a profile picture (I need to get one from Roz to add too) and tried to make it a lot smarter.  We have a new, more modern, font and will hopefully updating you soon with some more blog posts about life lately including our first family holiday to Turkey and my plans for the twins' 1st birthday party!

So what do you think?  Do you like the new look?

LOVE IT! So much easier for me to read without the swirls. Think you need to update your profile though, you don't still host a craft club in Glasgow do you? Lol. Once a Mum, always a Mum. Love you xxx
