Hi everyone! How are we all going? Hope all is well!
Has anyone noticed that my blog is looking a little different? AHAH. Perhaps, it's looking a little bit more organised? I've spent the past week trying to give my blog a new coat of paint to revive it a little.
The last time I tweaked my blog was perhaps last year when I renamed it VALENTINE the BLOG . This was because I anticipated opening an online store by the name of VALENTINE the SHOP . (no surprises there!). But last year was just one nightmare after another and I found it difficult to find time to blog, let alone open an online shop.
By the end of last year, I had thoroughly outgrown the name and the idea of an online store. The blog name also wasn't aligning itself with my other social media sites, which all carried the 'thisisvalentine' handle. I began thinking that my blog looked too basic and cluttered. I wanted something that would look and read much better. I've always been very aware of the fact that the first thing the audience judges is the attractiveness and useability of a blog template.
So allow me to introduce THIS IS VALENTINE . YAYYYYY! I purchased my template from Kendra at Swoon Creative Studio. She makes gorgeous templates, amongst other things and you should definitely check her out if you're on the hunt for a blog revampl! The template took a bit of fiddling around but fitting a new template was surprisingly easy!
I'll still be largely focusing on beauty but I want to make the move into writing about things I'm facing in my 20s - whether it be travelling, careers, relationships, friendships... because surely this world could use another commentator giving their two cents on current affairs and popular interest topics! AHAH.
Enjoy your stay and please tell me how you like the new template!
