Pretty much me today.
It's been a long time coming, but I'm absolutely delighted to let you know that the blog redesign is officially complete! (Well, aside from a few minor tweaks that are still pending, but it's 99% complete and that's good enough for me.) I think everything is pretty self-explanatory in terms of the new layout, but there are a few things I do want to mention...
First, can we hold hands, light a candle, pour out a 40 or whatever other tribute feels right in honor of the piggy? RIP to my piggy bank logo! I loved that logo, but it was time to go (although I did keep a little tribute on my new About Me page, in case you ever want to see him again. He'll always be with us there!).
Second, I listened to your feedback and I included just about everything you wanted to see up on the top navigation bar (if you're on mobile, that's the "Menu"). I'm not 100% happy with the way the navigation bar looks on desktop right now, but I'm working on making it cleaner so, if it's bugging you too, just know that it will be fixed eventually. ANYWAY, I updated My Holy Grail Products page (yay!), I gave the You Tell Me page a face-lift, and I did a few other tweaks here and there, but I'll leave those for you to discover.
Speaking of mobile, I hope you all are liking the new mobile version so far. I know there are some issues with some of the ads, and I apologize for any pop-ups or screen freezes you're experiencing right now. Please know that I'm working to correct those as quickly as possible, but in the meantime, please try refreshing the page if you experience any issues (hopefully that fixes things for now!).
Now that the redesign is 99% finished, I honestly cannot WAIT to get back to regular blogging. I have a lot of catch-up to do when it comes to new product sightings and reviews, and I also can't wait to do the weekly drugstore makeup sale posts again (I feel like I've been lost these past few weeks, not knowing what the heck is going on at the drugstores!).
Finally, I want to thank each and every one of you for your patience, understanding, and support during these last few months. I could have the most amazing site on the internet and it wouldn't mean a thing without someone there to read it. So thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for your encouragement and patience!
PS: If you have any comments about the new design, please know I am well aware of the current ad issues and I'm working as hard as I can to fix them as quickly as possible. So no need to comment about that, but all other raves/rants about the new design are welcome!
