Sooo, I am a big introvert. People are always surprised to hear that if I had a choice between going out and partying or staying home and drinking tea, nine times out of ten, I’ll choose to stay home. The reason people are so shocked is because when I am put in a social situation, I light up. But, on days like today, I did math homework (BLAH!) and edited my blog.
Tonight, however, is reserved for some definite R&R since no one is home and it’s just me, myself & I. I am doing some book revisions first, then ordering pizza for one, and finally watching my trash TV. I think it’s always good to step back and clear your head (especially for me since a majority of my time is spent in front of a computer screen), not thinking about anything but food, drink, and whether or not Joe Giudice from The Real Housewives of NJ is going to jail or not. Oh, Joe!
You will also notice that my blog has been revamped. Well, I’ve always wanted to update it somehow, but never knew what color scheme to go with. I perused Tumblr, Pinterest, and good ol’ Google for some design inspiration. Usually I don’t like to just settle with what is “in” at the moment, but I made an exception, because, well, I have a love affair with chevron patterns. Once I had this pattern figured out, it was time to implement the colors. I’ve always loved aqua and purple, but I wanted my blog to be soft and pretty so I went with aqua. I am in love! The header was made using a site called PicMonkey! It’s free and super easy to use , especially if you’re not a Photoshop person and can’t figure out all those html codes. Also, I wanted a section on my blog with links to all the social-networking sites I am a part of. Soo, I used trusty Google and found the widgets I needed to add along with easy copy-paste codes. In the upper right hand corner you’ll see “Follow me” and my Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Tumblr widgets underneath! 🙂 Overall, I’m really pleased with how it turned out and I hope you like it!
