An Early Spring Clean!

On a whim yesterday evening I decided that I wanted to have a little blog spring clean. I had the same header since I first started the blog pretty much and although I'm extremely attached to it, I felt like it was starting to gather a few cobwebs and look a little tired. So I have retired it for the time being and it's currently sunning itself on a beach in Hawaii on a much deserved holiday. But I really hope you like the new look, I'm not totally done yet I don't think because once I start it's super difficult to stop fiddling around here and there, but I'm quite happy so far. Even if it has taken me a million hours, several hundred cups of tea and more than one mini breakdown. I may have cried. Once. But it's okay, it's worth it!

If you happen to find any links that don't go anywhere or any bugs in general please give me a heads up and I'll attempt to fix it as soon as I can. I really have absolutely no idea what I'm doing when it comes to layouts and if I'm honest I don't really understand why it all has to be so complicated /old lady rant. I think I'll get the help of a professional next time!

I hope you're having a lovely Thursday evening!
xoxo

  24. Hi Jennie It look really nice and put me in mind of sailing on a boat in a middle of nowhere (or maybe that could be as i'm listening to spa music at the moment). Have a lovely weekend xx
