New Look Not Dressed As Lamb | Mini Blog Makeover

Not Dressed As Lamb - new blog design
If you’ve been looking at my blog in the last couple of hours you may have seen a sneaky gradual change in the design… I’ve been transferring over the new blog design for Not Dressed As Lamb! No major changes, just a bit of a clean up and some streamlining. The header has been updated, with new page header links too. Other new features include:

Just one sidebar – I hope it’ll make uploading on phones and tablets quicker if you’re viewing the web version (which I still like to switch to)

Google+ followers are now displayed in the sidebar (I’ve got to get to grips with it!) – if you add me to your circles I’ll add you back if we already know each other

Updated social media icons in the sidebar to replace the old ones in text:

 Social Media Icon - Twitter Social Media Icon - Facebook Social Media Icon - Instagram Social Media Icon - Google+ Social Media Icon - Pinterest Social Media Icon - RSS Social Media Icon - Email

New/updated pages to read: A new FAQs page and updated About page

A revised Media Kit if you wish to advertise with Not Dressed As Lamb (ads are now larger)

New buttons in the sidebar with links to various pages on the blog! Look out for them (shown below)…

Sidebar Page Button - Outfits Sidebar Page Button - Shop My Look

Sidebar Page Button - Photo Tips Sidebar Page Button - Musings

Sidebar Page Button - Featured Sidebar Page Button - Advertise

Hope you guys like it! As I said it’s more of an annual spring (summer) clean than a total design haul. It was inspired somewhat by this post on IFB: – stuff we should be checking now and then to keep everything up to date. Though saying it is one thing, doing is another… ๐Ÿ˜‰

A few things to let you know about: I’ve been a bit of a busy (and lucky) girl with a few features about me and the blog lately – if you haven’t read them you might like to find out more about me!

Plus some… news! Exciting news!

Tuesday 23 July (next week) is both my birthday and Not Dressed As Lamb’s bloggiversary… I will have the MOST fabulous post coming up on that day. Let’s just say it’ll be a bit of a thank you for all the support everyone has shown me over the last two years.

Plus, I’m going to be involved in a couple of majorly exciting national campaigns over the next few months, the first one will be featured in a post next week. I’ll leave them both as a surprise – don’t know why, as I’m wetting my knickers with excitement.

Let me know how you find the new design (do point out any errors I’ve made, won’t you? links not working, etc.), and I’ll see you back here on Friday for an outfit post. Happy Wednesday x

    Love the new look. I like a bit of negative space in graphic design too. Beautiful as always my dearโ€ฆ.
