The Lifestyle Post #10: A little change around here…

In the past couple of weeks, I have had a mini impromptu blogging break. It happened for a variety of reasons, the main one being that there has been a few changes going on around here! I decided that I wanted to give my blog a bit of a wardrobe update and thanks to the help of a few super talented people this is the finished product and I love love love it! Firstly I had my lovely new header designed by Fathima Kathrada Illustration & Design. I loved Fathima’s illustrations when I first saw them and after giving her a rough idea of what I wanted she came up with this amazing end product. She understood exactly the kind of style that I wanted and captured what A Much Prettier Puzzle is all about perfectly!

For my template, after seeing a recommendation on In The Frow, I headed over to Pipdig to check out the range of pre-made designs they had on offer. I fell in love with this one, and I knew it would compliment Fathima’s design so well! The guys at Pipdig were super helpful and they throw in installation for free when you purchase one of their templates – how good is that?! I always manage to mess up some code when I am installing new features so this was a massive plus for me! If that wasn’t enough, the template is coded so that it looks equally pretty on laptops, tablets and mobile devices, so now however you want to keep up to date with my posts, it’s gonna be super user friendly!

As well as the new design, I have a few new features including a search bar, a popular posts widget and a place where you can email subscribe to get all my latest posts straight in your inbox (ahem family you now have no excuses not to read them!)

I love my new look, so I want to say a big thank you to Fathima and the team at Pipdig, here’s to a new chapter and a fresh page!
