This post should have gone up yesterday as part of my new schedule of Tuesday//Thursday//Sunday posts, however yesterday was really not a good day for me and the last thing I really felt like doing was even turning my computer on let alone sitting down and typing anything. Today, although only marginally better, has at least been well, better, and therefore I thought it was high time I confront the elephant in the room… the new look LJLV!!

Yes that’s right, I finally took the plunge and bought my own domain. Gone are the days of and I am now the proud owner of the (much more professional sounding)! I think this just goes to show that I mean serious business. Srsly.

With my swanky new domain, I needed a new blog layout which I got courtesy of the brilliant Pipdig. I finally feel happy with the look of my blog – that niggling feeling of something being just not right has finally gone and I’m ready to develop this little corner of the internet into my own empire. Srsly.

I need to stop saying srsly.

I’ve also decided that I really want to post more regularly, although the whole idea of 3 posts a week was to give me time to actually relax and unwind, I feel like there’s something missing from my life when I’m not typing up content and editing photos and the thrill of daily blogging is almost intoxicating. That said, I’m still not aiming for 7 posts a week, I’m going to keep it to a more manageable 4 until I get into the habit of regularly scheduling and planning ahead. I still type everything up the day it’s due to go live and it’s only my photos that are organised in bulk.

So, a long rambling post for your Monday evening, but I hope you’re all as equally excited as I am for what 2015 brings for LJLV!

    Love the new layout! Since I started my blog I've never been totally happy with my layout, but you seem to have it spot on! 🙂 Bethan | Thought from Beth x

      It's taken me almost a year to figure out what I want this space to look like both in terms of my blog design and photography so don't worry! I'm sure you'll get there with it soon 🙂 xo

    I feel like we're twinning! I got a new layout and domain in January in the hopes of at least one of my resolutions actually happening- blogging more frequently! The look of a blog can literally change everything! Love yours! I've been scrolling for ages, you've got a new follower ahha!

    I love the new look! I completely re-branded my blog, changed the name, domain, look and started posting 3 times a week about three months ago and could no be happier with the results. Good luck the the new

      Thank you honey!! You definitely can't beat a good re-brand, I think it's such a cathartic process and definitely one of my favourite ways to organise my head at the start of a new year 🙂 xo
