My blog has had a makeover!

In case you haven’t spotted already, I gave my blog a makeover! Woohoo! I’d wanted to do it for a while as I had the previous one for almost 2 years and was so bored of it/it felt quite template-y as there was not much customization really.

Design wise I have been making various mock ups for a couple of weeks of what I wanted it to look like, but could not get it quite right. I find design for web quite hard – it needs a lot of practice to be good at it!wipAnyway, I spent a lot of time this week on the design and it all started coming together. YAY! Then it was on to actually building it…

I am OK at HTML/CSS and can do it when I have to (I did most of my old design – you could probably tell..). However, I wouldn’t have a clue how to mobile optimize something or make a snazzy navigation bar like the lovely one I now have! Luckily my boyfriend Henry is a digital designer so he kindly built this for me (BIG SHOUT OUT ‘LOL’). I designed/directed it all/me being generally bossy-picky-hell and it took a lot longer than I thought it would so I hope you like it! Please do let me know if anything looks weird or there are any strange things happening – we did test it all but god knows what else might be lurking around and there are still a few little tweaks to make!
