New Look

What-ho, what-ho, what-ho!  {I may or may not have finished a Jeeves and Wooster omnibus this morning. [I did.] (Does anyone else love how they're called omnibuses?!)}


Well, here's the new look for spring!  Whatcha think?  *bites nails*  I will admit, it didn't turn out exactly as I'd hoped, but overall I think I'm satisfied with it :)  I'm sure there will be much tweaking going on in the coming days (I think I want a different background).

Btw, Miss Meg, thanks for your suggestion to unveil it on April 1!  I would wait, except that tomorrow is always the busiest day of my week, and I don't know how much time I'll have.  Hence the early reveal :P

What think you?

  1. *gasps* Girl, your new blog look is GORGEOUS! I love all the beautiful purples and greens! And is that Keira Knightley picture in the header from Anna Karenina, by any chance? Hehe, I think it's rather funny because I just discovered the movie soundtrack and mentioned it in my post today. *smiles*

    Anywho, your blog looks positively stunning! *dies of the prettiness* (And I love your new profile pic!)

  4. Olivia, your header is BEAUTIFUL! I LIKE it! As to the background, yeah I could see doing something different because you've had brown before...but sometimes a simple background like this adds a nice effect by making the header stand out more. Anyway, whatever you decide will be lovely, I'm sure. :) Oh, and I really like that quote by C.S. Lewis that you have on your profile! That's great!!

    1. Thank ya, Miss March! Exactly--that's what I'm thinking about the background. This is my go-to one, and I do love it, but I think I want something a little lighter for this header :) *squeals* Thanks! I love it too :D

    1. Morgan, thanks so much! The lady in the mirror is Keira Knightley as Anna Karenina :) (I haven't seen that movie. I really liked the book, and the movie looks like it would be FANTASTIC, but unfortunately it has a lot of content :-/)

  7. It's beautiful!!! Purple is one of my favorite colors ever, so I love it! :-)

    Ahhhhhhhh . . . a Jeeves and Wooster omnibus . . . there is nothing more perfect than curling up in a big comfy chair with one of those. They're AWESOME. :-) (And yes, "omnibus" is a fantastic word!)

    1. Thank you, Jessica!

      I AGREE, SISTA! Seriously, those stories are some of THE most wholesome literature I've ever come across, ever. They're not dreadfully deep, t'is true, but they are so impossibly clever and hilarious. And they're sweet, too :)

  8. Sooo pretty! I love it! The colors are amazing!

  9. I've never seen Jeeves and Wooster. Apparently Australians are unfamiliar with it. ;)

    I wish Robin would 'just drop in on me'... *siiigh* (I'm afraid I've got a slight obsession with the story of Robin Hood. Or just guys in hoods in general. I'm watching a TV series with my older sisters called Arrow which is modern, but yeah, it's got a guy in a hood and he's really cool. I'm afraid that show (even though it's got quite some content and we have to skip a few scenes) is slightly addictive.)

    No, I really like it! It's so FRESH. :) (I like fresh. It's one of my favourite words, actually. I love the SOUND of it.) I love your sidebar pictures, too! That lavender colour is gorgeous. (And your PROFILE PICTURE!! I LOVE that dress of Padme's. :D I WANT IT.)

    Oh, it's my name! *blushes* (I can never stop getting a funny little feeling when I see my name on the screen like that. Hehe.) Well, I don't really mind that you revealed it now... and besides, you know what?! It's actually the first of April here. :D (Haha! Win win!)

    *I* think it is delightful. That's what I think.

    1. May I just say...ARROW IS MAH LIFE. *ahem* that is all, good day.

    2. I think you'd really like J&W, Miss Meg! They're absolutely adorable and hilarious stories :)

      Hahaha, IKR?! (The story of Robin Hood really fascinates me, too. Oh, yeah, I've watched a bit of Arrow. It looked like it'd be another heart-wrencher show :D)

      Aww, thank ya! (I really like the word 'fresh' too, now that you mention it!) Eeeeeee, I know!!! I'm really happy with that picture :D

      Haha, I know how you feel ;P Oh, yay! Yeah, I was wondering if it might be. So win! ;)

      Thanks, girl :)

      Laura, haha, I love how you understand all of my TV show loves. Like literally all of them. It's rare, so it's really nice to have someone else to fangirl with ;D

    3. Laura:
      YOU UNDERSTAND. THANK YOU. (It's addictive. It really is.)

      Olivia:
      I think I would, but I can't find J&W anywhere around here. :/

      Arrow IS another heart-wrencher show. I like it way more than I thought I would. It's just too... I don't even know what it is! Action AND emotional stuff...

      Thanks for your darling words, old girl. ;)

    4. Aw. Sadness :'(

      I bet! From what I've heard, it's really rather a bally lot, emotionally and all :P

      Of course, m'dear! :)

  10. I like it a lot! Don't change the background, please. I love the texture and the color.

    1. Thanks so much, KB! Aw, well, I love this background too, but I think I might want to try something different for a change. I'm looking for a background to try, but even if I find one, it may not last if I decide I don't like it.

  13. Can I just say your new look is lovely? That is all, okay bye.

    Jk, it's lovely but that's not all I'm going to say. I LOVE THE HEADER. And is it weird that whenever I see a post from Meanwhile in Rivendell, I get excited? Your blog is wonderful. I love the new look. :)
    Psst, by the way, the comment I removed had a horrendous spelling mistake. XD I don't know about you, but I'm always curious why a comment was deleted and what it said. :)

    1. *grins ridiculously* Thanks, Laura!

      Oh my gosh! *hugs you* You dear awesome thing, you <3 You made my day :) (To be fair, is it weird that I get excited whenever I see a comment/post from Laura Yackel? ;D Oh, and btw, is it okay to call you by your real name among the interwebs, or would you rather not? Just wondering, 'cause I think you've told me it before and it's a beautiful name :))

      Oh, haha! Thanks for explaining! I didn't even catch the spelling mistake when I read the first one :P

It appears that you're about to leave a comment. I think you should know that if you do, I will giggle and smile and be delirious with joy, and then I'll stalk you to find out whether or not you have a blog *ahem*.

…All that's to say, please comment! :D
