Ta da!

I can now officially reveal my new blog layout! Let me take you on a tour... Above you will see my new blog header (and appreciate the lovely rounded corners which took me forever to get right!) and notice a little suitcase that has replaced the blogger bookmark icon. To your right are three buttons where you can contact me through my new email address, peruse links to some nifty thrifty blogs, and view my semi-completed op shop map.

Below this I've added a mug shot and short bio which, upon clicking, will take you to the destination of my blogger profile. Continuing further south we have links to bloglovin' and my newly created twitter account where I plan to post pictures of weird and wonderful items I come across during my op shopping ventures that are just a bit too weird, and not wonderful enough, to take home (once I figure out how to do that from my mobile haha). I've also transferred my photos over to flickr so they can be viewed in the one spot if you want to have a look.

The layout isn't displaying perfectly in internet explorer (ie. you can't see the suitcase favicon and the sidebar and main section are not the same length) and I would like to fix this up at some stage and add a few more little tweaks, but for now I really need to get stuck into some thesis work! In the meantime, I would love to know what you think of the new layout and what else you would like to see on my blog.

PS. I found the pixie in a box of stuff during a declutter. I think he's cute and kind of retro looking; reminds me of a character out of Enid Blyton's the Magic Faraway Tree :)


  1. I love the layout, I think it looks great!
