saying goodbye to my blog


Saying good bye is hard to do but sometimes it's necessary.
Today, I'm saying goodbye to my blog. My old blog that is. Out with the old, in with the new.
Meet my new blog.

Although I'm an advertising account executive who briefs, guides and collaborates with graphic designers everyday, I got no skills when it comes to designing anything myself. Someday I'd like to learn how to use photoshop and indesign to create beautiful things. But for now, I enlisted the help of a very talented blog friend and designer Chelsea at Yours Truly.

I've been on the hunt for the right person to help bring my vision to life. And Chelsea knocked it out of the park! She captured exactly what was in my head and created the beautiful design you see here.  We are still working on a few finishing touches (like my About page) and tweaking a few things but it's a big improvement from the look I was rockin' before.

This is the color palette that I selected which helped guide the design and new look and feel. I wanted something soft, dreamy and inspirational which is what I hope my blog lives up to.


 I love my new design so much that I couldn't wait to share it with you.
What do y'all think?
