New Look + A Giveaway

I have been bursting with excitement about my new blog layout! When I started this blog it was much more about my every day personal life and that was about it. In the past year I have expanded it to reach a much broader spectrum, and thus I decided that I needed a new look and a new name that did not include Bryan's or my name.

If you know me, you know that food and fashion are two interests that are high on my list. I wanted something that would portray both and shine light on the things I enjoy. Not only is sweet tea a very Southern drink, but it is one of my favorite beverages. Sometimes with a something a little extra in it, too! I've always been a heel-wearing kind of girl. Now that I get older (ha!) I do wear more flats, but nothing changes my demeanor more than a good pair of stilettos. I hope that you enjoy the new look and be sure to make changes on your blog if you have me on your reading list. (The domain site is the same, just the title and layout are different).

Dawn at Lydia & Pugs did an amazing job on my artwork. I have been familiar with her work for over a year and finally took the plunge and had her create a custom header for me. Not only does Dawn do artwork for blogs, but she also offers stationery, labels, prints, aprons, tote bags and lots more. Click here for Dawn's blog, here for her website and here for her Etsy store. I could not be more thrilled with the experience that I had using Dawn at Lydia & Pugs! I highly recommend her and her work!

Dawn has graciously offered a free custom stationery design in celebration of my new blog layout!

An extra special shout out to Danielle at Dandy Design Boutique. Let me tell you, this lady is amazing! I have contacted a few different blog designers and they all have given me a 2-3 week turn-around plus charged astronomical fees. Danielle was bright and cheery from the start and had my layout ready in less than 24 hours! I talked to her more than I talked to my hubby yesterday. I have been a follower of Danielle's blog for a while, and know that you will enjoy reading it. Head on over and check it out and be sure to say that I sent you!
