A Blog Refresh

Hello there! Did you notice that things look a little different around here? I am so excited to finally have my new blog design up and running. Over the past few months, I've been working with Aubrey from Aubrey Kinch Design to give my blog a little refresh! If you're looking for a graphic designer and someone to help you with your website - I can't recommend her enough! I've used her as my designer since I started my blog, and she is great to work with. She creates fantastic designs and always seems to completely understand my vision.

It's hard to believe that I started this blog over 3 years ago, and a lot has changed in those three years - from my content, to the things going on in my life. Needless to say, 27 looked much different than (almost) 30 - I turn 30 on Monday! I wanted my site to have more of a timeless look - something I can grow with, and much as I love pink, I wanted a more sophisticated color. So I went with classic black, white, and gold. I wanted simple and elegant, and I think Aubrey did a great job with my new design! What do you think?

I also narrowed down my categories and added a new one  - as I have finally found my "content calling" and know what I want to focus on most! While I didn't start my blog to share my style, it's something that I have enjoyed sharing and as a way to express myself. So one category is Style, and you can expect to see all things fashion related and how I dress to feel my best - and how you can too! I also have a Life category, and here you will see anything from home decor, travel, personal posts, and recipes. I wanted this category to reflect all the good things about life - from decorating our home to trips that make us feel alive.

I'm most excited about my new category, Wellness. If you're a long time follower, then you know that I've been struggling with infertility for quite a while. Through this, I have learned so much about my body and have made so many changes to my lifestyle in order to live a healthier, happier life. I want to share what I've learned along the way - so this category will have all things health and wellness related. Lastly, I added an Oils page. This wont't be a category, but instead a landing page to learn more about essential oils and how to use them. It's still a work in progress, so I'll share more on that later! My hope is that you will find some inspiration and encouragement through one of the categories, and hopefully all three!

On another note, this little lace dress has been a staple for me this summer. It is one of those dresses that you can throw on for anything - with heels or flats! I have worn it more times than I can count. It runs true to size, and I promise you'll love just as much as I do! It will quickly become your go-to dress for any occasion. Also, how cute is the pom pom bag charm?! I picked this up in Mexico this summer and have been adding it to all my bags and totes. I think it is so fun! I found a similar one online and you can shop it here.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on my new design and what category you most excited about! Thanks so much for reading! XO -
