New Design

I have been meaning to change my blog design for a substantial amount of time but I got caught up with school then lost in the excitement of summer. I found myself a few spare days this week and decided to trial out some designs, came up with one I liked and decided to go for it.
For any of those who may be wondering, I purchased the basic layout on Etsy from this shop (its the Eze 2) as they are very good value compared to many others I have seen and offer a wide range of designs. I found it easy to install after some initial major panics and it didn't take long to get it how I wanted after a little assistance.
I then created my header myself and altered the colours, fonts etc of the layout to get it just how I wanted it, introducing some additional features such as the Instagram Follow me.
Blog headers are surprisingly easy to create and I would definitely recommend purchasing a cheaper more simple layout if you are confident with designing a header as buying a premade or custom made template can be jolly pricey.
There are also plenty of bloggers who are wiling to create headers for free (for example: Alice), I would say its just a case of looking around to see what can be found.
What do you think of my new layout?

  1. Wow, your blog is looking gorgeous lovely!
    One thing I would maybe say is that your header takes up my whole screen when I come onto your blog? That may be the style you're going for (in which case I'm now going to look totally silly!) but just thought I'd let you know in case it isn't hahah
