A facelift and random goodness.


Hold on ... don't click that little "x". You are in the right place, I just gave the blog a little facelift. First of all, I know its Monday and while I looooooove to write my weekend posts, I sucked at taking pictures for the second week in a row. So you get me rambling about the blog facelift and some random goodness instead. Also I rambled in list format because ... sleepy.
* So yeah... about the facelift. I love it! Lisette seriously did a great job in giving me the simple, clean and sleek look I wanted. No more lines. I was feeling too confined. I did love my old one ... but boredom struck and this one makes me all shades of happy! Do you like???

* I also updated my existing pages and added new ones. I spent hours updating them and I love them! Go check them out if you have a chance :D

Anyone listened to or currently listening to Serial the Podcast? Ok ... I know I have waxed poetic about this podcast enough but there is an update!!! If you google it like a lunatic, or read celebrity gossip sites like yours truly, (fact: I first read this on TMZ), then you would know that Adnan Syed, the convict that Serial is based upon, scored a huge "victory" last Friday when his motion to appeal got approved aka his appeal has been reopened and he has a shot of overturning his conviction! Serial peeps know what I mean when I say ... I hope they pick this story back up in some future Serial podcasts!!

* I told my brother (my deceased sister's bf/fiance) about the blog when we were speaking on the phone yesterday. He was so excited and proceeded to go read some posts. I got all kinds of nervous because I don't know what the reaction of IRL friends will be to the blog. He said he loved it! *blush* In any event, I'm fairly certain he's going to read it everyday. Hi Brent! Love you!

* I am going to post the recipe for a Caribbean dish this week. I have never posted a recipe of my own so this is new. Technically its my mum's recipe since she wrote it out for me to actually post. Like ... with actual measurements. Thank God for mummy because otherwise the recipe would be "throw some of this and that ... and stir ...".

Enough ramblings for one day? I think so! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend. And tell me if you like the new look!


Have a Great Monday!!

  11. I love the new layout! It looks so pretty and suits you well :) And I'm totally okay with rambles too. Weekend update posts can get a bit redundant after a while, so it's nice to have a bit of a change of pace here and there ;)

  12. Cute new layout! I desperately need to give mine a makeover.
    I feel the same way about mentioning my blog to people I know IRL. Granted, most of my posts are unboxings but it still makes me nervous to talk about it to people I actually know!

  13. as you know; i love the new layout. and kudos for telling peeps IRL about your blog; i haven't told anyone i know about my new one and i won't be either :s

  14. Oh yay! Can't wait to see your recipe tomorrow. That's actually a challenge I have as well because I usually just eyeball everything so when writing it out for the blog, I have to guesstimate approx how much i used and hope I don't kill anyone. Loving the new facelift and profile pic!

  15. Congrats on the new blog look. It really looks great! It's a little scary telling real life friends and family about the blog, isn't it? I waited a year before coming out of the blogging closet (and I still have a lot of friends/family who don't know) and it's just a strange feeling to let them in!

  22. I love the new look! It looks great. My sister found my blog insta and was all sorts of confused until I told her I had a blog... she's reading it tonight and I'm ALL sorts of nervous! (And yes, I didn't even tell my family!) So I understand your feelings on that :)

  24. Isn't it so crazy how we're so afraid for people to find our blogs, and then they do and they're like "OMG I love it!" I mean, I'd be into it if I knew a friend had a blog, so why wouldn't they? It's just weird when the tables are turned I guess.
