NOW PLAYING:  Psycho - The Stone Foxes

Happy belated New Year greetings lovers. I actually hadn't anticipated returning quite so soon as I wanted to begin the new blogging year with an exciting announcement of changes to come and of course a brand-spanking new layout. But I've just missed y'all terribly so I decided to throw caution to the wind and just begin; plans be damned! I sincerely hope you guys had the most wonderful Christmas and holiday season. What did and have you all been up to since then? I haven't been doing much myself, just making plans and dying from the humidity and heat an Australian summer brings. Speaking of plans they mostly relate to this blog in general and it's overall direction. Aside from a new blog layout I've been looking into the content aspect and thinking of adding more solid topics to the list. Things that relate more to lifestyle than fashion such as more food. Not just the sweet kind but also serving some savoury and health ideas. I've also been itching to include interviews and collaborations with fellow blog friends into the mix. There's quite a list actually but I don't want to revel everything just yet and ruin the grand surprise! Currently I'm in the excruciating process of working out some kinks but worst still deciding on (one kind of) typography, so once I get my butt into gear, put on my big girl panties and make some actual decisions then shit will go live. Hopefully by the months end.

Pinkie swear.

  4. Yes, I have been looking forward to your new design... If I may voice one request: a larger font would be very nice! So the suspense is still on!

  41. Wow, Sonia. Looks like there are lots of come for your blog for the new year! Am sure whatever that you are planning, it will be great and when the time is right, it shall reveal itself, right?

    New year has always been spending time at home rather than partying for myself as I don't really like crowded spaces that much and the idea of being caught or stuck in a traffic jam for hours just freaks me out! haha

    Looking forward to seeing the brand new blog, but I am already liking this existing one, but change is always good! I love to make small changes to my blog once in a while, or when I have some time or ideas that pop up in my head. I guess that's how I keep the blog fresh, even though the changes can be small and subtle *_^

    Thanks for dropping by LUMINNEJ. See you again soon!

    Cheers,
    Jeann

  42. I actually think your blog layour is pretty and really pleasing to the eye. I love white background with lots of space. But I know what you mean about typography. I love the fonts for some blogs. They are just so clean and crisp and easy on the eye but I don't really know what fonts are those even after viewing the page source. I would want to change the typography of my blog too to make reading more pleasant but I don't really know how to go about changing the whole blog's fonts. Your text are pretty small and I've to zoom in whenever I am on your page so I'm glad to hear that typography is one aspect of the change. I hope that you managed to achieve whatever you've planned.

    RYC:
    Sonia, YOU ARE NOT BORING. I repeat, YOU ARE NOT BORING. Your posts are such a joy to read and your photos are so gorgeous. Well, it is good to rant at times and I admit that I was actually very sleepy crafting this post and then I started to feel wonder about how other bloggers do it and then I became very annoyed with the frivolous Instagram comments... everything all rolled into one and made me one very pissed off lady. I literally lol when I saw you mentioning that you were thanking some instagrammers and sending them emoji till you realised that it was a waste. That's really funny babe.

    I too, keep up with other blog friends by looking through the comments section of the recent posts and visit back. I seldom use bloglovin so I would sometimes recall that I haven't seen a certain blog friend for a while and would look back at more dated posts to find their links.
