Welcome to the blog's new look loves! :)
At the start of the year, one of my blog goals is to redesign my digital home. I've been using a lot of hot pinks in my previous blog designs because it spoke of my personality of being a strong woman, a sort of aggressive and always rushed mom.
But as I grow with my blog, my preferences, important life events, and even outlook have been simpler, more peaceful, and happier. I started to appreciate slower and simpler living, away from clutters and extra baggage. I started not to feel too comfortable with the overpowering strong pink in my life and blog. I see the state of my mind and heart more in the hues of White, Navy Blue and Gold. My clothing also reflects this change of heart and soul. It just simply transcends and naturally, the blog has to change for this as well.
You know how it feels when you see outdated clothes in the closet and you just want to change your wardrobe totally and just go for the classics? That's what this blog has undergone. A back-to-basic, classic, clean, feminine, but still practical and sophisticated at the same time. And now, when I see my blog, I can breathe deeply with feelings of inspiration and satisfaction.
THE BLOG DESIGN PROCESS:
When I already knew what I wanted, I started getting inspirations from Pinterest. I created several mood boards which helped me and my blog designer Patricia Alix Villa of Fancy Girl Design Studio, easily work on the blog elements. Here were my boards:
|Hues of Navy Blue, White and Gold|
|I love how peaceful it looks when White and Navy Blue are together.|
|Can't take away some curves and flair designs on my board, they have to be there.|
I got the premium package for a Blogger design and got some add-ons on top of it. I now have a new header design, home page and sidebar designs, and a new badge as well.
|I chose Isabella Typography for Mommy Practicality, very feminine and easy to understand.|
If you would notice, I also updated my blog's sub-header to INFORM, INSPIRE, and INFLUENCE Moms to Choose Practical Living. This has been my blog's purpose from the beginning so why not put it there officially. It used to be: Practical Life of a Working Mommy, Blogged. The old sub-header felt like it's more of me, myself and I. But this time, it's more of giving myself to others through the stories of life experiences I share on the blog, which are all directed at nothing else but practicality. I also want to bring the message that anyone can live an inspired and quality life by being practical.
|My beautiful badge which still has the flower element on the header.|
My favorite colors are there which speaks of both femininity and practicality.
Patricia certainly delivered everything I wanted the blog makeover to look like. I was blown away at how she translated my vision into her pretty, practical, and professional blog design. I love how easy it always is to work with Patricia. You can say that I am highly satisfied with her output and how fast she works as well.
