Follow the Newly Redesigned Pretty Shiny Sparkly

Well, hello there friend.

It’s me. You don’t recognize me?

“Did you get a haircut?” you ask, scratching your head.

Nope. (gleefully)

“Did you get a makeover?” you muse, stroking your chin.

Sort of!


After being inspired and reinvigorated by the motivational content that poured over my ears and eyes during the live stream of the Evolving Influence IFB conference yesterday, one of the things that I did immediately was flip open my Moleskine notebook (an analog version of my inspirations, jotted down in pen instead of pixels) and start writing my goals for the blog.

One of them – yet another redesign. I know you might moan and groan about how many makeovers this blog has undergone in the (nearly!) one year of its existence, but, seriously, it got to be too much…MUCH. Sidebars flanking on either side (which, actually, the left sidebar causes a very important – and very bad – delay in the loading of your actual post content, blogger beware!). Colors all over the place. I just felt like it made it very hard for the actual content of my blog – the posts – very hard to read when it was in sandwich form.

So what did I do? I stayed up 3 hours past my bedtime to bring you something totally different (but a little bit the same).

I am so excited about it because it finally conveys the true meaning of me – Pretty Shiny Sparkly. And it does so in a non-intrusive, clean, and overall girly-but-sophisticated manner. Much like my style (or that which I hope to achieve, anyway)!

I sincerely hope you like it. I did it for me (hear that, Gala?) but it will mean that much more if you like it too.

Would you do me a favor? Pretty Please? Come out of the shadows, you lurkers- leave a comment and introduce yourself! Please support PSS (really!) by following on Bloglovin’, Twitter, Facebook, and RSS!

So now: what do YOU think?

    LOVE the new header! Much better!

    Also, it would be nice to be able to view your entire post in Google Reader, but I have no idea how any of that works and if that's even possible for the way your site is setup.

    Either way, I love your blog!

    love the new design!
    so funny I have the "drink coffee" magnet on my fridge…of course, together with "I understand the concept of cooking and cleaning. Just not as it applies to me."

    have a great weekend.

    I love the new layout and design! I think staying up 3 hours past your bedtime was well worth it. Not that the blog didn't look fabulous before, but it looks pretty fabulous now πŸ™‚

    TGIF! 5 pm can't get here soon enough. Hope you have an awesome weekend!

    And I've been looking at the cupcake shaped sugar shaker on Blonde Birdie for about a week now… I think it will be the perfect gift for someone πŸ™‚

    Ok…so you prompted me to leave a comment, since I have been following and have yet to do so. I love the make-over. Its amazing how just the blog look can really pull in a reader. Its the first thing I notice when trying to decide if I "like" a blog and want to "follow" it. Great makeover!
