New blog look & inspiration

So as you can see La vie...J'aime looks a little different! I've been thinking about a blog refresh for some time, and after discovering that Alaina of Live Creatively Yourself does designs (specifically Peppermint Bliss which I love), I knew it was time.

I contacted Alaina a couple weeks ago. The process was easy, and she was a joy to work with! The photo in the header is one that my brother took-thanks Kyle!-and I sent her these images for inspiration.  


She then sent me a 5 header/look options for round 1, and after some tweaking in round 2, it was this header/look that was the winner.  I wanted something more sophisticated and modern- I got just that! 

Thank you, Alaina! Check out Alaina's new site with her other blog designs and graphic design services. What do you all think? :)


PS: Happy May!

  6. I love it! Especially your header image. I just did some tweaking on my blog too. Just when you think you're done, you get the itch to change things around again, right? :)

  7. Love the pinks and the banner! Though the links can be a bit hard to read on the white background... it's fine if you hover over them since they then turn black.
