Sunday Redesign Session



Happy Weekend Everyone! 
I thought since I had a few minutes to sit down, I'd make a quick blog post to catch up. I hope everyone is in great spirits on this beautiful Sunday.

Here's what's new...
I have been working hard for the last few weeks on a new design for my blog. I wanted something new, simple and modern. I also wanted to tone down all the glitz and glitter a bit. After posting a few blog posts, I noticed that I wasn't really happy with my blog design anymore. I started analyzing what exactly I didn't like. For months, I just ignored how much my blog design bothered me. It was out of date, it was too glittery, too flashy, too messy, etc. Since I didn't have much time to recode and redesign, I held off the redesign.  So I am finally happy to tell you that I found the time to redesign!! Sleepless now has a new face! After downloading font, after font, and playing around with every which way I could arrange each font. I finally got it together. I placed all kinds of colors together, and finally came up with keeping it simple. I wanted my favorite colors...period. Black, white, blush, and gold glitter (I couldn't live without some glitter guys...sorry).

Here's a design swatch I was playing around with before implementing my actual design.
Just so you know, I'm very familiar with redesigning tools such as Adobe photoshop, and Adobe Dreamweaver. I've created a few design elements such as social media icons, signatures, signatures with social media icons for a few bloggy friends. I'm great with codes, so if you need anything done, shoot me an email. I'd be happy to help. Everything on my blog has been designed, and coded by me, myself and I :).

What else is new with Sleepless? Well, I'm happy to also inform my readers about how I finally joined Instagram (for real this time). I'm really excited about Instagram, because I feel like it's a more personal type of social media. Which I'm happy to share my personal life with my readers.

Monday, I celebrated my birthday! No numbers please, but about a week ago my fiance threw me a great surprise party!! All my friends and family attended, and surprised me as I came through my front door. I felt like the only girl in the world!!
