Surprise Redesign (and Giveaway)!

Blog Redesign on Natalie Catalina
 

Surprise! Surprise!

Well, might not be so much of a surprise to some as I tweeted about it late last night. My new blog design has arrived and it's hopefully looking just as fabulous as Jane (see above). I'm so excited for this refresh as I've been working on it for about a month now. It's everything I wanted it to be and I'm so happy with it. I hope you will take the time to check it out and look around. There's a lot that's new.

To put it simply, everything is updated! My About page has been rewritten, but is still awaiting my personal photo (coming soon). My Shop page now displays an easy slider for coveted items to shop and an updated directory. There are simplified categories for the blog and a new awesome search bar! In the footer, there's a brand new navigation where you can find my Archive, FAQs, and Terms. Additionally, there are brand new share buttons (in pink!) at the bottom of every post for easy sharing.

I really wanted to create a space that was more user friendly and this template really lets me do a lot more with the site and blog. I've also totally improved the mobile-optimized version of the blog, so you all can easily read and browse the site on your phones during lunch, on the metro, and at dinner when you're not paying attention to your friends ;). And of course, as you may have noticed, the background got a fresh coat of paint and my fonts have been recreated. The newsletter is also revamped to display content nicely and follow the new style. I just love the newness of it all. If I do say so myself, "swoon."

I had planned on launching this January 1, but I simply couldn't wait and was anxious to be able to design my posts with the new blog design features. This means a whole lot of things for the new year. I'm hoping to revamp all aspects of this blog with fresh designs and topics, more personal stuff. And hopefully reviving my Instagram, which I've been totally neglecting. I want to do so much more in 2017, especially collaborating with other bloggers and brands and dedicating more time to this space. This refresh has totally inspired my creative flow and I've already got so many ideas for what's to come. I hope you enjoy it all as much as I do.

ANYWAYS, I'm doing a giveaway to celebrate the redesign AND the holidays AND to say thank you so much for continuing to support this little space of mine. Every comment you leave makes me smile and I'm so grateful to see the amount of readers coming here week after week. This blog wouldn't be as wonderful without all of you!! So, I'm giving away a gift card to Need Supply Co., one of my most favorite one-stop shops with gorgeous, classic products for both men and women, home, beauty, and office.
