New Site?

You might notice that my site is looking a bit different now. That’s because I took a plunge and switched my blog from the Blogger platform to WordPress. I did it for a number of reasons (which I’ll talk about in another blog post for bloggers who want to read about it). The main reason is that I wanted my blog to continue to grow and I felt the move to WordPress would support that goal more so than staying on Blogger. I just made the switch over the weekend, so I’m still in that adjustment period where I’m learning this new platform and everything I can do with it (there’s a lot!).  I’m still also in the process of fixing things, making tweaks to the design, and getting settled into my blog’s new home.

What I already love about the new site is that it will be easier to navigate and find things that interest you as a reader. See that spiffy new menu bar above? I broke all of my posts down into specific categories and organized them nicely, so feel free to do some browsing!

So far, I’m loving this change and once I make a few more adjustments, things will be running smoothly again. I hope you’re liking the new design!

Have a fabulous week!

This was the first lip primer I’ve ever used, so I decided to put it to the test and see if it does what it claims by doing a little experiment.

Our plan was to start in the Bay Area around San Francisco and head up to Fort Bragg with little stops along the way.
