Pardon Our Dust

If you're viewing this blog at 11:35AM Pacific today or later, then I apologize for what you're seeing! I'm in the process of the long-awaited blog redesign, and the finishing touches will take several hours.

So please hold your "I love this!" or "I hate this!" comments until I post that the redesign is officially complete. Until then, assume that what you're seeing right now is probably going to change a bit (or a lot).

Thanks so much for your patience, and I hope you'll enjoy the new digs (on both desktop and mobile).

  1. Hi G, I know it's still in progress but I just wanted to let you know that every time I click on something in your blog I get a full-page splash ad for Fright Fest and I actually find the ad quite disturbing, especially the first time when I wasn't expecting it. I totally understand and support why you have ads, but please consider limiting the deliberately-frightening content to side-of-the-page ads and/or not having it pop up over and over again.
    Thanks for your consideration. xo

    1. Elizabeth, thank you so much for your comment. Please know that I wasn't even aware of this ad until some readers who commented on my Sephora post last night brought it to my attention. I'm working as quickly as I can to have the ad removed (I would do it myself immediately, but I belong to a network so I have to request the removal). Thank you so much for your patience...it's unfortunate that this is happening on the same day as my blog redesign (I can only do so many things at once and I'm trying to get it all done as quickly as possible). My apologies, and thanks so much for your patience!

    2. I was just going to say the same thing! That ad is so disturbing.

  2. I appreciate and enjoy looking at this site for the latest items. Is there a way to make the site faster? It takes 5 minutes to load the front page on my computer. That and it loads the pages weird. Like if you go back more then four pages, the site will direct you to the front page. Thank you for all that you do!

    1. Can you tell me which browser and device you're using? On my end, my blog is loading 3x as quickly as it was before the redesign, and no issues with reading older posts. Thanks so much!

  4. (I know it isn't ready yet but) I like what I'm seeing so far. It looks like a really trendy fashion blog almost. Quite professional. The old look was cute, but this is like the site has grown up.

  6. Congrats on the redesign! It's really nice. The page does load a little longer than usual. Just thought I'd give you a heads up on that one, but I'm loving this layout!

    1. Thank you so much, Stacy!! Can you tell me which device and browser you're using? I'm trying to make a list so that I'll know who to approach fixing the load time. I've tried on PC desktop, laptop, and two different android phones all with Chrome, and the load time has been much quicker than my old design. So I'd love to know which browsers/devices are experiencing a lag. Thank you!!

  13. Hey G, just wanted you to know that when I go on the blog on the mobile version via iPhone 5(safari browser) the page automatically redirects to a bunch of ads eventually leading to the app store opening up to the NY times. This only started happening last night, aside from that I'm loving the new design!
